Futuristic Eye Tracking Headlamps Point where a Driver is Looking

Futuristic Eye Tracking Headlamps Point where a Driver is Looking | Internet of Things - Technology focus | Scoop.it
If Opel/Vauxhall's new eye tracking headlamps work as planned, you will be able to control the behavior of your car's headlamps with your line of sight.

Via TechinBiz
Richard Platt's insight:

This technology works using a simple webcam, peripheral infrared sensors, and central photo-diodes to scan the driver’s eyes more than 50 times per second. The system then translates the information into data commands for electronically-controlled actuators that align the vehicle’s headlamps. Headlamp actuators react almost instantly to make the adjustments. You will be able to aim your headlights precisely where you want to look both vertically and horizontally

VeinViewer Means no more Poking People Relentlessly to Locate Veins

VeinViewer Means no more Poking People Relentlessly to Locate Veins | Internet of Things - Technology focus | Scoop.it
VeinViewer takes the guesswork out of inserting needles into veins, making it easier for medical personnel, and less painful for patients.

Via TechinBiz
Richard Platt's insight:

VeinViewer is a vein finder that uses infrared light to look under the skin and projects an HD image of the veins onto the surface of the skin. There won’t be any miss when the doctors and nurses poke you with a needle next time.  This highly portable device helps hospital staff to immediately locate a vein inside a person’s arm. It can find veins up to 0.4 inches or 10mm deep. The light detects hemoglobin in the blood and then instantly illuminates the intricate network of veins.

The light is totally painless but highly accurate, increasing both first-stick success and patient satisfaction.

Service Industries now Training Human Employees in Robotics & Automation

Service Industries now Training Human Employees in Robotics & Automation | Internet of Things - Technology focus | Scoop.it
Robotics & Automation have already been fully embraced and developed in the industrial world. Now companies in service industries have the opportunity to learn how robots and automation can help them.

Via TechinBiz
Richard Platt's insight:

According to the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), 2013 saw the highest number of industrial robots ever sold, with a total of 1.6 million units worth an estimated $10 billion.  According to the IFR, double-digit growth will continue through the end of this decade with more and more countries adopting robots and automation. According to IFR:

  • Global competition requires modernization of production facilities.
  • Energy-efficiency and new materials, e.g. carbon-composites, require retooling of production.
  • Human-machine collaboration will open up new applications and attract new customers.
  • Growing consumer markets require expansion of production capacities.
  • Decline in products’ life-cycle and increase in the variety of products require flexible automation.
  • Technical improvements of industrial robots will increase the use of robots in the general industry and in small and medium-sized companies, e.g. user-friendly robots, uncomplicated, and low-priced robots for simple applications.
  • Improved quality requires sophisticated, high-tech robot systems.
  • Robots improve the quality of work by taking over dangerous, tedious, and dirty jobs that are not possible or safe for humans to perform.

The Machines Are Self-Aware

The Machines Are Self-Aware | Internet of Things - Technology focus | Scoop.it
While wearable technology for consumers might be most visible manifestation of the phenomenon known as the Internet of Things, it isn’t going to have the greatest impact on the corporate bottom line. That distinction belongs to industrial smart machines. Read the Full Story >

Via TechinBiz
Richard Platt's insight:

Consider a Siemens’ plant in Amberg, Germany, that produces PLC's (programmable logic controllers). Smart machines connected to the Internet autonomously control 75 percent of the facility’s production, enhancing efficiency so much that there are only 12 dpm (defects per million) units produced.  - Operational Efficiencies is the trend that the IoT will go for implementation that impacts the corporate bottom line.  The caveat is in order for that to happen, all of those practitioner's of Lean, Six Sigma, and TRIZ will be needed to identify where those opportunities are to be found and how an IoT solution could be implemented.

Not all that new of a technology, many years ago was using a less sophiticated version of this in college, but perhaps this technology is going to go mainstream.  What do you think, is there an application for this in what you do?
