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

How All-in-One Systems Make Workers More Productive

Via TechinBiz
Richard Platt's insight:

the Intel® NUC provides an elegant solution. These mini-desktops take advantage of low power processors, improved thermals, and small form factor design motivated by mobile platforms. However there is another aspect of mobile computing that lacks penetration in the desktop – and that is touch. - With every tap, pinch and swipe, mobile devices are continually reinforcing the modern way of interacting with technology. Not only is touch ubiquitous on phones and tablets, but now a higher percentage of clamshells offer touch to take full advantage of Windows 8.1. - Because of customer's expectations in the mobile space will drive the "touch" functionality in future systems,  we suspect so anyways.

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.

Richard Platt's insight:

The two dimensional material, which is known as molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), is pretty finicky about generating electricity. If it is stacked in an even number of layers, it doesn’t do anything. But use an odd number and stretch it in the right direction, and the electricity will start flowing.

Beyond the Moore's Law: Nanocomputing using nanowire tiles

Beyond the Moore's Law: Nanocomputing using nanowire tiles | Internet of Things - Technology focus | Scoop.it

An interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers from The MITRE Corporation and Harvard University have taken key steps toward ultra-small electronic computer systems that push beyond the imminent end of Moore's Law, which states that the device density and overall processing power for computers will double every two to three years.

The ultra-small, ultra-low-power control processor—termed a nanoelectronic finite-state machine or "nanoFSM"—is smaller than a human nerve cell. It is composed of hundreds of nanowire transistors, each of which is a switch about ten-thousand times thinner than a human hair. The nanowire transistors use very little power because they are "nonvolatile." That is, the switches remember whether they are on or off, even when no power is supplied to them.

New device allows brain to Bypass Spinal Cord, move Paralyzed Limbs

For the first time ever, a paralyzed man can move his fingers and hand with his own thoughts thanks to a new device. A 23-year-old quadriplegic is the first patient to use Neurobridge, an electronic neural bypass for spinal cord injuries that reconnects the brain directly to muscles, allowing voluntary and functional control of a paralyzed limb.

This is a very important breakthrough in help people with paralysing injuries, to think that some of these people may yet again regain the use of their limbs through the use of this new technology and live more productive lives.

Peter Hughes's curator insight, March 27, 1:41 AM

Medical research has come a very long way in the past years, and the fact that it is now possible to artificially link the brain to one's limbs is almost unbelievable. If research continues at this rate, we may soon be seeing realistic artificial limbs, and possibly even some vast improvements to artificial sight technologies.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, November 10, 2014 8:33 PM

Ford has successfully experimented with a new "Obstacle Avoidance" technology which uses Wi-Fi devices to help avoid potential dangers on the road.  If an emergency is imminent, the avoidance technology will take control of the car and avoid an accident.  This is something every car and truck should have.  Great safety idea from Ford.

"Automated Driving Technology." 2014. Web. 10 Nov 2014

 

    This is a video demonstrating the new technology in cars that is designed to maneuver itself to avoid potential car accidents and even park itself. Watching this video it would be difficult for a person to pick out by this technology would be a con rather than a pro. I must admit, it is pretty neat, but there is one thing in this video that I would like to point out. In order for the car to sense danger as in another car ahead, it uses WiFi which syncs the cars together so that it would move or adjust accordingly. What if the stopped car ahead doesn't have the same technology as the one going 90 miles per hour? If the person behind the wheal was relying soulfully on the vehicle to get him or her out of danger, they were in for a rather not so good surprise. The point is, if people rely on technology too much, it could literally be life threatening.
