Panasonic And Element14.com Launch IoT Research Project Based On Infrared Array Sensor

News

element14.com and Panasonic Automotive & Industrial Systems Europe, together with several engineering schools from the UK and Germany have launched a research project looking at innovative infrared people detection software in combination with the world's first ever surface mount thermopile sensor "“ the Panasonic Grid-EYE Infrared Array Sensor. Participants will be invited to document the progress of their projects on the community platform, element14.com. On completion of the projects, Panasonic and element14.com will select the entry that they consider demonstrates the highest degree of originality, innovation and technical merit. The faculty responsible for this project will be awarded a budget to spend on selected Panasonic components and equipment.

Dianne Kibbey - Global Head of Community, Social Media and Creative Services, Farnell element14.com: "At element14.com, our online community is the industry standard for electronics collaboration. We are delighted to be working with Panasonic on this initiative, which reflects our long history of facilitating innovative research projects through our STEM Academy, our regular Design Challenges and our membership of over 480,000 engineers, makers and educators. We're excited to discover what the participating students come up with over the coming months, and we look forward to showcasing the results of their hard work on the element14 community."

Mubeen Abbas, Product Manager, Panasonic explains that Panasonic has joined element14.com in this project in order to reduce barriers to university-industry research partnerships. He comments: "Innovation happens where ideas and experiences collide "“  where different branches of knowledge interact and where people with entrepreneurial skills work side by side with those who have pioneering knowledge. Cooperation between universities and industry is therefore central to driving innovation. With the explosive rise of Internet of Things (IoT) applications in a fast-changing world, we understand that working hand in hand with universities is more important than ever before."

In the IoT world, many objects that surround us will be on a network in one form or another. More, granular, 24/7 quantified monitoring is leading to a deeper understanding of the internal and external world encountered by humans. To achieve this, data transmission and sensor network technologies must rise to meet new challenges, in which information and communication systems are embedded in the environment around us. IoT implementations are not possible without the data provided by sensors "“ especially infrared sensors "“ and the transportation of the data to and from the cloud via wireless modules.

By combining its new IR sensor technology with Bluetooth wireless systems and software for IR detection of people and objects on one board, Panasonic enables students to develop rapid prototypes and quickly build their own wireless sensor "Internet of Things" applications.

Dr. José Manuel Andrade, Control Systems R&D Engineer / Senior Lecturer in Electrical & Electronic Engineering, University of Derby adds regarding the question why he and his university have joined the competition: "The Panasonic Grid-EYE evaluation kit and the Panasonic Grid-EYE Lab-Test in particular offer students the opportunity to learn about electrical and electronic engineering by using cutting-edge technology within a real-world context. The Panasonic Grid-EYE evaluation kit has very good potential within the IoT. Firstly, it has the capability to connect to a PC, a mobile device such as smart phone or tablet, or an Arduino board. Secondly it has the ability to monitor moving and motionless objects as well as measure temperature and produce thermal images in different contexts that range from household solutions to industry and health applications.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
