At CES 2017, Vincent Maxime, Product Manager from Enerbee describes how the use of airflow, temperature, humidity, CO2, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and pressure measurements with the Bluetooth connectivity of the Enerbee Smart Vent can provide a visual indication of the healthy or unhealthy status of various rooms in your home.
At CES 2017, Behrouz Hariri, CEO & Co-founder of Smart Nora explains how a microphone in his company’s system listens for the earliest indication of snoring. Since people transition from breathing to snoring at around 40 to 42 dB, once this level is detected, an inflatable portion of the system beneath the pillow creates a […]
At CES 2017, Mickey Ferri, cofounder of Enflux describes how his company’s motion capture clothing’s capabilities can used by patients recovering from shoulder injuries. Using microelectromechanical (MEMS) inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensors embedded in clothing to measure changes in orientation, the data can be displayed on monitor and used remotely by caregivers to track the […]
At CES 2017, Paul Gerhardt, Cofounder of Lockitron demonstrates how the voice recognition capabilities of Alexa’s microphone (pressure sensor) and software can be used to remotely lock (or unlock) his company’s Bolt smart lock. Cloud to cloud integration allows the user to trigger Alexa remotely.
At CES 2017, Mickey Ferri, cofounder of Enflux describes how microelectromechanical (MEMS) inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensors embedded in clothing can measure changes in orientation. The motion capture clothing’s capabilities can be used to track activity in sports or even allow the wearer to become a character in a video game.
At CES 2017, Dr. Nanshu Lu, co-founder of Rotex, shows how an electronic tattoo can measure different biometrics. Mounted on the chest, the tattoo can provide a continuous electrocardiogram (EKG). Mounted on a muscle, the flexible membrane can measure muscle activity and gestures.
At CES 2017, Paul Ruelos from Neofect demonstrates the occupational benefits to stroke victims and others who have neurological disorders from the company’s Rapael smart glove. Using microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) bending and axis sensors in a flexible exoskeleton glove combined with the company’s Rapael software and a graphical user interface, the system collects range of […]
As part of the SignalFire Remote Sensing System, SignalFire Wireless Telemetry’s Pressure Scout is an intrinsically-safe wireless pressure sensor for pressure monitoring and alarm reporting. The design consists of a pressure sensor integrated with a wireless node and internal battery. Applications for the Pressure Scout include well tubing and casing pressure monitoring, tank level monitoring […]
You put sensors, wireless communications and computing technology together to solve a problem and what do you get? Smart something. In the marina area, it’s a smart marina. Case in Point: Tourist ports in Greece lacked a reservation mechanism, so captains had problems finding or planning for an available berth. Recognizing the problem, start-up SaMMY […]
At Sensors Expo 2016, Nigel Atherton, founder of Joulefusion (JF), demonstrates a non-contact energy harvesting technique that uses rotating or linear motion for its microgenerator (MG). For more information about the JF-MG, click here.
