Accelerometers are widely used in electronic products such as phones, gaming controllers and cars. Since they are cheap and ultra-low power, in many products they are part of the wake-up circuit. When they sense movement, they turn on the rest of the systems. However, if they are deployed incorrectly, they will cause intermittent problems with [...]
If you recently stepped into the role from a developer position, here is some of our most popular resources that others have found helpful. Are you a boss or a leader? Team building: forming - storming - norming - performing The engineering manager’s journey for engineering excellence 10 questions to ask your electrical design engineer
by Larry Burgess In the last few years, the smaller size and lower cost of radios has created opportunities for passing more and more information from place to place faster and cheaper. Low data rate scenarios like soil monitoring and crop quality on farms, detection and instant notification of leaks on pipelines, availability of parking [...]
Wearable fitness devices are influencing today’s medical devices that target clinical and everyday applications. Some of the innovation involves new modalities of measurement: for example an iPhone that analyzes your eyeball to determine blood pressure. But fundamentally the challenge has shifted from determining how to make accurate and precise measurements to how to enable a compact [...]
We are excited to be mentor at Stanford University's Health Hackathon. We will assess their technical feasibility and help provide guidance on product development.
Voler Systems was excited to participate in health++ 2017 In Review Stanford’s Annual Health Hackathon on October 21-22, 2017, as a mentor and sponsor. health++ is a two-day event that brings together 300 engineers, designers, business experts, and healthcare professionals for a weekend of ideating, designing, and building for affordability in healthcare both domestically and [...]
Deep nets are becoming pervasive in many desktop and mobile applications. However, running deep nets on small embedded devices remains a challenge. Some challenges include choosing the right implementation on the embedded device (cuDNN, TensorFlow, etc.) and using other tricks that can improve performance (for example: off-loading power hungry algorithms to the cloud while keeping [...]
In case you missed Walt Maclay's "Low Data Rate Links for IoT" presentation, here is the video. Long range low power wireless communication for IoT With wide-scale IoT solutions being implemented, we are seeing an emerging set of new wireless technologies being developed. The focus of much IoT innovation is on low [...]
