Thanks for your help. I've duly cataloged your ideas and will undertake further study of them. It's interesting to note you've suggested some of the same capability requested by some of our customers.
Can you point me to an inexpensive radar sensor? I remember reading about such a sensor but haven't seen anything on it in years.
Regarding expertise/experience in Video/Image signal processing systems. Some of our employees have such experience but GIRD hasn't had many inquiries from our customers.
I'd like to know what ideas people have for simple products that signal processing would improve. -Randall
After reading a bit about gridsystems, I came up with below ideas. They might be old, might be new, butthats what occured to me when I brainstormed after reading your post -
I. Military/Defence - a) Spurious Radiation detection in space and mitigation/cancellation of the same, that might affect the functioning on electronic components used in Space stations/shuttles.
b) In battlefields which have automoted drone planes being used, detecting, tracking and decoding the satellite phone communication used by enemy is a very useful tool to have.
II. Civilian -
1)Consumer electronics - a) Infrared universal remote controller for household appliances.
2)Automotive - An object proximity detector for cars, based on some kind of radar/RF signal processing to warn driver of too much closeness to curb, other cards, objects, etc. This could also guide drivers during parking the vehicles and unparking.
3) Medical electronics - I keep reading about lot of experiments being carried out in Neurology which study brain EEGs and such bodily signals. May be a good accurate, portable EEG and ECG monitor could be a good ad on for a smart phone for health monitoring.
Question for Randall - Just curious if Gird systems has expertise/experience in Video/Image signal processing systems? I work in this area.
Hope this helps.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
