All driver vision enhancement systems are not the same. This is especially true for defense vehicle applications that can employ daylight sensors (typically charge-coupled devices (CCDs)), lowlight sensors (image intensifier tubes) or thermal imaging sensors (Mid-Wave Infrared (MWIR) and Long-Wave Infrared (LWIR)). The fused Driver Vision Enhancement (fDVE) solution from RFEL Ltd, a UK-based electronic […]

Announced at CES 2014, the InvenSense ICM-20628 system on chip (SoC) boasts the world’s highest performance and lowest power fully autonomous 6-axis motion tracking solution. The single-chip design combines industry-leading gyroscope and accelerometer specifications with InvenSense third generation digital motion processing and algorithms while consuming less than 2mW. New features of the sensor include: Self-calibration […]
Announced as the first of a kind at CES2014, MEMSIC’s sensor development kit (SDK) MMW-SDK allows system designers to add an integrated e-Compass to a connected watch. Meta Watch Ltd worked with MEMSIC to integrate the e-Compass into its MetaWatch family of smart watches. The e-Compass uses MEMSIC’s recently introduced MMC3416xPJ ultra low noise, low […]
Sensor hubs play an essential role in handling complex algorithms and reducing power consumption in portable electronics that employ sensors to provide increased functionality. The SSC7102 microcontroller from Microchip Technology Inc. was developed using input from multiple industry-leading sensor manufacturers and sensor-fusion specialists. The result is a sensor hub that can run complex sensor-fusion algorithms […]
As part of its ecosystem effort for sensor fusion, Atmel Corporation has selected several partners to provide a more complete system solution. For the low power, high-performance flexible SAM D20 Cortex M0+ core. Atmel selected Sensor Platforms’ FreeMotion Library. The library allows always on power with very low power consumption. For sensor fusion and user […]
