Canada Scientists Develop A New Device With A Diameter Of Only 3 cm

wallpapers Industry 2020-03-10
Recently, the University of Waterloo, Canada, said that researchers at the school had invented a car life perception device that combines millimeter-wave radar and artificial intelligence technology to detect unattended children or animals in the car accurately.
 
At present, the device has been funded by auto parts manufacturers and expected to be launched in market by the end of 2020.
 
With a diameter of only 3 cm, the device can be mounted on a car's rearview mirror or the interior ceiling. Its principle is straightforward. The device emits radar signals during work. People, animals, or other objects on the vehicle reflect these signals, and then they are analyzed and processed by the artificial intelligence system in the device.

The primary purpose of the device detects whether there are leftover children or pets in the car and prevent the tragedy of children being suffocated in the car from happening repeatedly. When the device detects that there are children or pets left in the vehicle, the system will prevent the door from locking and issue an alert to remind the driver, passengers, or people around.
 
Bearings are an essential part of the research equipment. Tapered roller bearings have many advantages. Because the roller is conical and the cone has an angle, it can easily withstand loads in all directions. It withstands axial thrust and radial loads better than spherical, cylindrical, or needle bearings.
 
It is reported that this device has low power consumption and can rely on the car battery to power it. It can distinguish between living and inanimate objects by detecting slight breathing. The designer of the installation, George Shaker, a professor at the University of Waterloo, argues that the installation solves a severe global problem. And compared to other similar products, "this device is small and inexpensive, and can become the standard equipment for all vehicles."
