Earbuds Consumer Survey Identifies Key Takeaways for Manufacturers
ams, a leading worldwide supplier of high-performance sensor solutions, shared the results of its ‘Comfortable, Smart, High-performing Earbuds Survey’ conducted in Spring 2020 with 2000-plus consumers around the world on their audio earbud uses, habits and preferences.
Sensor supplier AMS wins Great Wall business
ams technology, developed in cooperation with Germany's Ibeo Automotive Systems, a specialist for optical sensors that use lasers to produce 3D pictures of a car's environment, or lidar, will be a core component of a new generation of Great Wall Motor's vehicles.
VCSEL LIDAR and Level 3 Autonomy
High-performer sensor supplier ams has announced that a LIDAR system from Ibeo Automotive Systems, ibeoNEXT, which uses ams Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) technology, will be used in Level 3 automated driving systems for vehicles built by Chinese OEM Great Wall Motor in 2022.
WattIQ Uses Its Power for Good
Enter WattIQ, a 12-person company that previously went by the name Ibis Networks. The rebranded firm is now in the asset-management business, with a particular focus on pharma labs. They essentially retrofit a monitoring network onto all that shiny expensive lab equipment.
11 Myths About XYZ Color Sensing
With the recent application of nano-photonic interference filter technology, XYZ color sensing is moving out of the realm of laboratory instrument into more mainstream applications, including in-situ spectral sensing and lighting. In this article, we tackle 11 of the most common misconceptions about XYZ and its applications.
Internet of Things Smart Sensors Are Driving Smart Buildings
Basically, the Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of interconnected devices embedded with sensors, software, network connectivity, and electronics that enable them to collect and exchange data. Sensors, therefore, are key elements in the "things" of the IoT. They are a crucial part of what we conceive to be the next industrial revolution and will affect the way businesses, governments, and consumers interact with the physical world.
Magnetic Angle Position Sensors Elicit Efficient, Energy-Saving Motor Control
In the seemingly endless quest for higher motor performance and improved system cost efficiencies, motor manufacturers are increasingly adopting a new trend: Replacing multiple magnetic Hall-effect latch sensor devices with a single Hall-effect magnetic angle sensor device for motor-commutation feedback. This trend is particularly evident in the automotive and industrial markets, where use of brushless direct-current (BLDC) motors is on the rise.
Smart Sensors’ Role in the Digital Ceiling
The Internet of Things (IoT) has introduced large-scale networking and digitization to commercial buildings and opens a whole new range of solutions and services for construction and building management executives that are too compelling to ignore. This innovation will yield true smart buildings that are efficient, save energy, optimize facility management, enhance safety and security, generate business intelligence and improve occupants’ experience.
ams Goes All In On Sensors
Most of the acquisitions we report on in the tech community have diversification as the end goal of the deal. For example, a large and established LED maker may acquire, or at least partner with, a maker of flat-panel displays to get a piece of the LED-TV/Display market.
