This new access control product provides rapid and accurate identity confirmation using video and IR cameras and a sophisticated machine learning algorithm. The product also incorporates alternate access methods including fingerprint, QR code and mobile phone apps.

The need for rapid, accurate access control is growing among companies and organizations that must govern personnel access to facilities, buildings and regional campuses. A facial recognition system captures facial images via digital camera and other sensors and verifies the identity of a person using a machine learning algorithm. Facial recognition has been perceived as the most natural and accurate way to confirm identity and prevent unauthorized access. It is also the most difficult to thwart.

Dusun’s facial recognition access control product offers an extremely accurate recognition rate (99.9%), fast recognition time (0.5 seconds) and can detect faces up to 1 meter away. This product features a self-learning algorithm that can even compensate for face changes from aging. Dual digital cameras for 3D facial recognition along with an infrared radiation (IR) sensor for body recognition are provided to prevent identity spoofing using photos. This product can adapt to bright and dark lighting with its anti-backlight capability and also provides a video intercom for instances when person-to-person communication is required.

Access control and personnel identification are becoming very important to ensure that our living and work spaces are secure. Utilizing facial recognition as the basis of an access control system of IoT for granting physical access has many advantages over card reader-based access. Dusun is pleased to develop this highly accurate and efficient facial recognition access control product to add secure functionality and superior performance in an IoT access control offering.

You check into a hotel. You get into your room and call the front desk to ask for some extra towels to be sent up. Several minutes later, your phone rings and you are told there is a delivery outside your door. You open the door, but you don’t see a hotel employee. Instead, you see a robot … with your towels.

This isn’t a scene from a science fiction movie. This is real life at the Renaissance Hotel in Las Vegas. The hotel has two robots, Elvis and Priscilla, manufactured by Savioke, a company based in San Jose, California.

Just last week, across the street from the Renaissance Hotel, the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) was held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and, as usual, robots were a big attraction. This year, however, stands out for those in the customer service world. Just as AI and chatbots are becoming mainstream in helping customers get answers to their questions, companies like Savioke are hoping that robots become an integral part of the customer service experience.

One of the more interesting stories comes from LG Electronics, the South Korean company known for its TVs. The company was at CES, showcasing robots for three different markets. According to the LG press release, the robots, named CLOi (pronounced like the name Chloe), will work in hotels, airports, and supermarkets.

Fridge Alarm Speaks and Saves Power and Food by Bryan Cockfield

ElectronicKitSchool. - This is one information update from microcontroller project in this time with the article titled Fridge Alarm Speaks and Saves Power and Food that written by Bryan Cockfield.

Image Courtesy of http://hackaday.com

One of the most power-hungry devices in our homes, besides the air conditioner or heater, is our refrigerator and freezer. It’s especially so if the door doesn’t close all the way or the magnetic seal doesn’t seat properly. [Javier] took to solving a recurring problem with his personal fridge by attaching an alarm to the door to make sure that it doesn’t consume any more power than it absolutely needs.

At its core the device is straightforward. A micro switch powers a small microcontroller only when the door is open. If the door is open for too long, the microcontroller swings into action. The device then powers up a small wireless card (which looks like a variant of the very well-documented ESP module), that communicates with his microwave of all things, which in turn alerts him with an audible, spoken alarm that the refrigerator hasn’t closed all the way. It’s all powered with a battery that will eventually need to be recharged.

While there are certainly easier ways to implement an alarm, the use of the spoken alarm is a nice touch for this project, and the power savings that can be realized are not insignificant.

Sensor Technology News: Water-Resistant Pressure Sensor Enables High-Performance Wearables by Mathew Dirjish

ElectronicKitSchool. - This is one information update from sensor technology news 2017 in this time with the article titled Water-Resistant Pressure Sensor Enables High-Performance Wearables that written by Mathew Dirjish.

A first choice for Samsung’s Gear Fit 2 Pro, STMicroelectronics LPS33HW miniature waterproof pressure sensor resists chemicals and salt water. Suitable for use by swimmers, the sensor also stands up to soaps and detergents. Samsung’s Gear Fit 2 Pro is said to be the next generation of sports band, packing features that include GPS, continuous heart rate monitoring, and larger on-board memory for when the user is not connected to a smartphone.

In addition to being highly accurate, the LPS33HW has the unique ability to recover quickly after the stresses of manufacturing. According to STMicro, most sensors can require up to seven days to regain maximum accuracy after coming off the production line, but devices containing the LPS33HW are ready for use in less than half that time. This translates into designers getting their products out the door a lot quicker.

It Ain’t Just For Wearables

In addition to wearables, other equipment including industrial sensors and utility meters can enlist the LPS33HW. The 10-bar pressure sensor can withstand being submerged up to 90 meters, and its RMS pressure noise figure of 0.008 mbar allows apps like an altimeter, depth gauge, or weather monitor to deliver consistent and stable results. The sensor accuracy drifts by less than ±1mbar per year. When soldered to a circuit board during product manufacture, the accuracy is affected by less than ±2mbar, and returns to normal after less than 72 hours – significantly quicker than similar water-resistant pressure sensors.
