Dev & Eval Kits
- Intelligent CNC (Intelligent Computer Numerical
Control) machines increase processing accuracy and efficiency while
relieving operators’ physical as well as psychological workload.
Additionally, these machines are capable of detecting, diagnosing and
correcting all sorts of errors during production, as well as providing
solutions that are optimized for production.
Sensing in Elevator
- Since the first elevator was an invented, effort to
improve elevators’ driving method and safety has never stopped. Today’s
elevators perform much better than their predecessors in terms of
efficiency and passenger safety. This is due to use of various sensors
that ensure elevator systems deliver fast, safe and comfortable service
by monitoring the operating variables and surrounding conditions in real
There are four primary types of elevator movement mechanisms: traction,
hydraulic, vacuum and climbing. Sensors used in all types of elevator
include infrared, level, current, load and hall-effect sensors, limit
switches and encoders.
Portable Infotainment System
- Benefitting from increase in processor speed, MEMS
technology and advanced manufacturing process, portable entertainment &
navigation systems have come a long way since their inception. These
systems have evolved from those with single function (audio playback) to
more complicated ones which boast diverse software such as navigation,
smart OS, and mobile games to provide users a better experience. The
main contributor behind this would be MEMS sensors which feature high
precision, digital output and small footprint. Hence, it is now possible
for designers to integrate different types of MEMS sensors into smarter
systems with smaller size and less power consumption.
Solutions for Smart Home
- A Smart Home can provide people with a comfortable,
safe, power-saving and convenient life by enabling intercommunication
amongst all household appliances. This includes lights, HVAC (Heating,
Ventilation and Air Conditioning), TVs, computers, entertainment system,
and security system. They can be controlled by a smart home control
panel installed in house or through GSM/CDMA, Internet, and PSTN
networks. Smart home systems are also called home automation, electronic
home/e-home, or intelligent home.
Underground Rail Station Safety Monitoring System
- The increasing number of passengers at underground
rail stations is currently raising safety concerns. Apart from the risk
that people may fall into the path of train by accident, there are other
possibilities of unauthorized entrance, fire and other accident. To make
sure these safety hazards can be detected and resolved quickly;
underground rail station safety monitoring systems are designed and
deployed by countries around the world.
Wind Turbine Monitoring System
- Wind is a clean and renewable power source. Today,
the most popular solution of wind power generation in the world is based
on wind turbines. To ensure safe operation of these turbines, close
monitoring of is an absolute necessary.A wind turbine monitoring system
is responsible for monitoring the tower, blades, shaft, gear box,
generator and overall conditions in generator compartment. This involves
a variety of sensors e.g. accelerometers, encoders, temperature sensors,
oil/liquid level sensors, particle counter, voltage, current and
- Since the emergence of Apple’s iPhone and iPad, the
smartphone and tablet computer market has shown an unprecedented
prosperity, and attracted many leading manufacturers into this
profitable area. It is reported that until the third quarter of 2011,
Apple’s iOS-based smartphone and tablet series have gained 15% of global
market share, while the Android-based smartphones and tablets account
for an astonishing share of 52.5%. The booming market has in turn
spurred a variety of related technologies to develop further, especially
the wide variety of sensors used in these handheld devices, which are
constantly improving the user experience
Mobile Health Monitoring System
- The mobile health monitoring system is a new model of
medical care developed based on sophisticated computer networks, modern
communications and sensor technologies. It assures health care services
for people anywhere and anytime.
By wearing miniaturised wireless sensing devices, patients can be kept
informed of their health condition, whilst medical staff in remote
monitoring centre could receive data from those devices and give
patients suggestions in time, so that the possibility of a medical
emergency could be considerably reduced.
