BeBop Sensors, a company that makes the sensors, has closed a $10 million investment from Bullpen Capital in San Francisco.
Although not a household brand name, BeBop designs and manufactures smart fabric sensors for Fortune 500 companies in automotive, health, IoT and virtual and augmented reality markets. The round was led by Bullpen Capital.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate product development and market penetration.
Led by Keith McMillen, Founder & CEO, BeBop Sensors designs, manufactures, and delivers smart fabric sensors to Fortune 500 companies in the Health, Automotive, IoT, and AR/VR markets. Leveraging its sensors, which measure physicality, sensing pressure, XYZ location, bend, motion, rotation, angle, and torsion, for precise analysis of data, the company offers the following technology products:
"“ Forte Data Glove, a data glove with sensors and haptics for the consumer market;
"“ Sensor Helmet, providing location-specific impact information;
"“ Multi Sensor Insole, which measures the changing forces on the bottom of the foot;
"“ Automotive Occupant Classification System embedded car seat sensors with intelligent car occupant sensing technology for safer airbag deployment;
"“ Smart Foot Mat, a high resolution sensor platform that measures a person's balance and detect anomalies in orthotic measurement; and
"“ Fabric Track Pad, an input device that can be conformed to a car's interior for accuracy to recognize taps, gestures, and swipes for applications.
Where things or people interact, the company's comprehends force, location, size, weight, bend, twist and presence across any size, resolution and geometry.
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
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.
