It's the era of IoT (Internet of Things). Here we user force sesnsitive resistors (FSRs) to build an smart warehouse prototype. In this prototype, we use Snowboard 2 and a few single-zone FSR sensors.
Snowboard 2 is an entry low cost level pressure mapping electronics. In this video, a vase is put on top of our FSR matrix sensor MS9723 and Snowboard 2 measures and displays the pressure image of the pressure produced by the vase.
Pressure mapping system is widely used in various industrial fields such as manufacturing, electronics, automotive, medical, and so forth.
Here we shows an example of applying our pressure mapping solution to a manufacturing facility which is producing cool electronics products.
The system is composed of MC1600 data acquisition electronics and MS9760 FSR matrix sensor.
[Video] Animal Gait Analysis
This video shows the video demo of animal gait analysis introduced in the previous post.
Spray Pressure Mapping
This spray pressure sensing demo shows increased sensitivity and resolution of novel Kitronyx tactile sensor technology. Spray pressure sensing is a valuable solution for designers working on applications in fluid and gas spray.
MC1600 electronics for FSR matrix sensor and MS9760 thru mode sensor are used for this demo.
In this article, drop ball impact test using our MC1600 data acquisition electronics and specially designed sensor is demonstrated.
In the left figure above, trajectory of dropped ball is clearly measured. The impact force by the ball can be also gathered and displayed in the right figure.
This system is developed according to the requirement from a client who needs quantitative analysis of impact force.
Kitronyx provides custom design service including sensors, electronics, and software. We welcome a new client who needs a pressure distribution measurement system and its customization.
Here are a few photos of our pressure mapping system designed for dogs and animals. The system is being used in a local veterinary clinic.
Sensors, electronics, software, and housing are all designed and/or developed by Kitronyx.
In this study, we share our latest work for a research institute who needs pressure mapping sensor for animal behaviour analysis.
The system is composed of MC1600 and MS9760 FSR matrix sensor sensitive enough to assess motor performance in rats and mice.
Footprints of mice are collected and transmitted by MC1600 and our analysis software visualizes and saves data for data analysis by our customers
Snowboard 2 is a low cost data acquisition electronics for FSR matrix sensors. It can be used as a standalone device as well as an Arduino shield. In this demo video, Snowboard 2 is combined with Arduino Uno, SeedStudio Bluetooth Shield 2.0, a gas sensor, and a temperature sensor. Arduino collects all sensor data and transmit them to host PC via Bluetooth network.
