In his keynote address at Sensors Expo 2017, Ori Inbar, co-founder and CEO of AugmentedReality.org tells how augmented reality (AR) is poised for considerable growth. (Excerpt from “Superpowers to Change the World: How Augmented Reality Helps Advance Humanity.”) In 2009, Inbar told a conference audience that in ten years everyone will use AR to experience […]
At Sensor Expo 2017, a ROHM Semiconductor expert discusses how several sensors including pressure, temperature, flow and level sensors connected through sensor node can help monitor a machine’s health or control a process. In the demo, each sensor node collects the data and uses wireless sub-gigahertz radio called Wi-SUN and transfers the data to a […]
At Sensors Expo 2017, Pete Smith, Sensors Knowledge Manager at TE Connectivity, explains how sensors have evolved over the last few years to address different application requirements from TE Connectivity’s perspective. Pete’s story starts with the M7100, a standard industrial pressure sensor for TE Connectivity that addresses fuel rail pressure measurements in fuel injected vehicles. […]
The new WIS 2 (Wireless Inductive System 2) is the ideal way for Pepperl+Fuchs to round off its portfolio for the wireless connection of sensors to moving machine parts with a higher-performance system. Image 1: WIS 2: Primary/secondary component The WIS 2 is used both for signal transmission and for supplying power to the sensors connected […]
If you are a stranger with a car in a crowded city or even if you know the area well, a frustrating part of being in the most popular downtown places can be finding a parking spot. At Sensors Expo 2017, Raffaelli Riva, an application engineer from STMicroelectronics, demonstrated how sensors and wireless communications are […]
At CES 2017, Theodore Marescaux, Chief Executive Officer from Muuselabs demonstrates how Jooki, a Wi-Fi/Bluetooth jukebox designed for small children can detect different play lists in characters that are easily recognized by children. The box senses the presence/proximity of the character and immediately implements the playlist. Each character is easily programmed by adults so children […]
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.
