RFID Technology Improves Patient Care Management

RFID tracks patients leaving their bed to improve their care. Sensor data tells hospital staff when a patient is no longer on their mattress. This signals that either the patient fell from or left their bed. It also detects how often they leave and even how many times they turn over during the day. If

New Factors Driving India’s Electronics Industry

India’s electronics industry has grown to become one of the largest consumer electronics markets in the Asia Pacific Region. There are numerous factors amplifying this growth in recent years. These include the growth of India’s middle-class population, increasing disposable income among its citizens and dropping prices for electronics. Despite being considered a single economic class,

Syrma Technology’s Kaizen Competition for Employees

The Japanese word for “improvement” is called “Kaizen” and this word often refers to activities that continually improve business functions by all employees from the executives to assembly line workers. Kaizen was first practiced in Japanese businesses, like Toyota, after World War II, and it has since been applied to manufacturing operations. Kaizen usually delivers small improvements, which have been shown to yield large results in terms of a company’s overall productivity. It’s also a process that, when done correctly, simplifies human effort and teaches employees how to identify and eliminate waste in business processes. 

Capturing IoT Telematics Data Used for Smart Cities

Traffic and congestion are major problems for cities across the world. In fact, these problems are currently poised to worsen in the future, since these difficulties will increase as urban population centers continue to grow. Cities are under growing pressure to improve their infrastructure; however, they have less space and often tightening budgets. Data gathered from traffic patterns are becoming part of the solution. This addresses congestion, gridlock, pollution, and vehicular accidents. Most cities typically decide where to place new electronic crosswalks, traffic lights, turn restrictions, medians, and other upgrades based on accident reports. The difficulty with relying on these reports alone is that drivers don’t mention avoided accidents to the police, etc. This can mean that an intersection has become dangerous, but city officials have no way to know until it’s too late. Without analytics, cities are powerless to prevent initial accidents and injuries. Instead, they have to react after incidents happen and analytics can help pinpoint problem areas before issues even arise. Telematics Data from IoT-Enabled DevicesUsing what’s known as the Internet of Things data (IoT), cities can begin the transition to smart cities. Large urban centers have hundreds of traffic cameras; but, it’s almost impossible to manage every individual camera feed. Traffic cameras can be upgraded using analytics to pinpoint problematic areas. Analytics monitors the bulk of the data collected. Meanwhile, city employees can pay closer attention to data feeds from important areas. Telematics, a subset of IoT, utilizes sensors like GPS mounted on vehicles. Numerous systems already exist, such as on taxis, commercial trucks, etc. These vehicles use sensors to monitor speed, braking, and maneuvering to identify dangerous drivers. For instance, if vehicles are braking hard in a specific intersection or on a certain road, there may be a need for a turn lane. Telematics can also incorporate data gathered from outside vehicles. Houston is a prominent example of a city that uses IoT devices on the outside of vehicles to monitor air quality. Vehicle-mounted cameras can also analyze interactions with pedestrians or on-the-ground traffic conditions.

Regulating Voltage with Electronic & Magnetic Transformers

A transformer is a device designed to help lighting systems reduce high voltages. This transition from high to low voltage is referred to as “step-down.” Transformers are often used in homes with monorail/track and landscape lighting systems. They convert 120 volts to 24 volts or 12 volts, whichever the lighting system requires. While 120 volts is the standard residential electric current, many systems need lower voltage to function. Many household appliances also use transformers. These include doorbells, thermostats, external path lights, and under-cabinet lighting. There are two transformer types: electronic and magnetic. Both varieties have unique applications, advantages, and disadvantages. Electronic and magnetic transformers shouldn't be mixed in the same dimming circuits. With a high-voltage counterpart, like lighting, a low-voltage transformer is less costly. Installation is also likely to be far easier and it may not even need the help of a professional. This is because the voltage is either 12 or 24 volts, meaning it's relatively harmless. Additionally, wiring can be buried under the surface or laid right on top of the ground. Both types of transformers have their own pros and cons. It’s important to consider the specific requirements of the system being installed.

Electronics Intellectual Property Protection in India vs China

Protecting intellectual property (IP) rights is a pressing issue for countries around the globe. Countries face continuing controversies over the extent and nature of intellectual property rights. International law has implemented many regulations and recommendations surrounding IP protection; however, no matter how good laws may be on paper, problems with implementation still arise. Meanwhile, laws are often inadequately executed. Laws on intellectual property rights in India and China are similar to systems in Western countries; but, there are important differences. Some of the main countries tasked with IP protection are also sources of counterfeit goods, privacy, and fraud. This article will discuss some of the major differences between India’s and China’s intellectual property climates.

Benefits of Using a Quick Product Prototyping Service

Prototyping is becoming an instrumental part of the modern market. As industries grow and evolve, they need fast implementation of new ideas. Designers must quickly get realistic prototypes in the hands of potential customers. Digital models are far less understandable than something they can see and feel. Traditional product development, including prototyping, can delay products in reaching customers. Traditional methods can also create room for design errors. Quick product prototyping is one of the most beneficial services for product developers, since every manufacturing organization is concerned about improving design, development, and sales.Quick product prototyping refers to a collection of manufacturing techniques, which allow digital models to be created as physical parts. There are many types of technologies that come together to make prototyping possible. The goal is to produce an accurate prototype to send to testing, which should be done as fast as possible. Quick prototyping makes this process much easier than traditional methods. Many different products can be produced through rapid prototyping. These can include concept models and functional prototypes. They may include showing how companies can produce working prototypes for reasonable costs.

Embedded PCB Technology for Small Mobile Devices

Printed circuit board (PCB) technology, or PCB, has become a vital part of modern electronic devices. The global market value for bare PCBs was over $60 billion in 2014 and is estimated to reach $79 billion by 2024. These figures show that PCBs will continue to grow in importance. Nowadays, PCB technology is used in everything, but the simplest electronic devices. Some electrical products, like passive switch boxes, also use PCBs technology.

Current Impact of United States-China Trade Relations

Since the beginning of 2019, China’s manufacturing sector has seen a net decrease, which began earlier last year. This is due in part to less exports and could mean that the Chinese economy is slowing down. The background trade war with the U.S. puts the manufacturing sector as well as other sectors at greater risk
