TzoneNew STRATO Product named Tzone

Once more, STRATO is innovating!  A new digital temperature sensor compatible with the BACzone 424 (presented in April 2012) has been put on the market: The Tzone. This intelligent sensor can display 10 real time values in addition to the default room temperature. With this feature, the user can easily consult different data provided by the corresponding “VAV” controller such as the outdoor temperature, the zone discharge temperature or the zone heating and cooling demand.  Up to 8 Tzone can be linked together to a BACzone following the RS-485 “daisy chain” standard communication. As well, the BACzone VAV controller parameters such as air velocity configuration can be set directly from the Tzone.

Infrared Thermometer InventionFraden Announces New Infrared Thermometer Invention for Smartphones

Now available for licensing to qualified companies with a significant presence in the mobile phone market, the Fraden Smartphone Sensing patented technology and IP (Intellectual Property) employs a non-contact infrared sensor built into a smartphone or tablet to instantly and accurately measure patient temperature in less than one second with absolutely no contact with the human body.  A priceless feature for parents with small children, nurses, doctors, caregivers or anyone that has ever had trouble taking a temperature, the sensor accurately detects infrared signals that naturally emanate from any surface.  Just aim the smartphone at the face and it automatically takes the internal body temperature.  A small infrared lens is positioned near the camera lens, with no protruding parts, making the device appear identical to existing smartphones.  The sensor’s wide range, from -22 ║F to +400║F, offers broad applications in taking temperatures of not only humans, but also of inanimate objects in the home environment, such as kitchen (cooking and refrigeration), bathroom (baby bath water temperature), school (science class), and industry (automotive and production machinery, chemical processes, energy management, and construction).

PeopleBotPeopleBot

PeopleBot is a differential-drive robot for service and human-robot interaction (HRI) projects. PeopleBot is built on the robust P3-DX base, with a chest-level extension to facilitate interaction with people.  PeopleBot offers an optional touchscreen (pictured) connected to an onboard computer, for human interaction. PeopleBot has infrared table sensors to detect when it approaches a table and an optional 2dof gripper with sensors to detect and pick up a cup or other tabletop object.  PeopleBot features the same architecture as other MobileRobots platforms,  featuring the Pioneer SDK.  With an onboard computer and the laser navigation package with ARNL software and laser rangefinder sensor, PeopleBot can navigate autonomously and avoid obstacles with precision.  PeopleBots without a laser can navigate autonomously and avoid obstacles less reliably, using built-in sonar.  With an onboard computer and pan/tilt/zoom camera, a PeopleBot can be used for research topics including object and people recognition and tracking, mapping, localization, or other robot vision tasks. (Use the included ACTS software for a simple color tracking software solution.)  The camera may be installed on top of or underneath the top deck. When placed underneath, the camera can view the gripper, tabletop or floor.
