A new computing style with Hearable

Product overview

Looking ahead to the near future in which people and AI or robotics work in harmony, the “hearable” technology has been designed to link people and objects with AI without hindering their movements in physical space. By inserting a “hearable” device into the ear, this technology captures the information of “who is” “where at” and “in what situation”, enabling provision of a hands-free, non-sighted internet experience.

Selection and appraisals

The technology proposes a range of solutions by combining perception of user information, acquisition and operation of information without the user having t to be aware of a UI. With the idea of “plugging in (inserting)” the device into the ear, both the perception and the hands are freed, which enables the acquisition of information through the hearing as necessary during work and operations, and enables interaction through utterances. As well as enabling the determination of the individuals using the technology, it also has functions for continually sensing human kinetics and speech. Completely different from the conventional information environment where display, keyboard and mouse are used, this technology has been appraised for its ability to realize a completely new UI and UX. It was also highly evaluated for its potential to be a new device that can acquire and exchange information while people are working on site in the AI-linked work scenarios that is expected to become more of a commonplace in the future.

Piezoelectric Line

Product overview

Piezoelectric Lineは、非焦電性の有機圧電フィルムを同軸線の絶縁体部分に配置したフレキシブルな張力センサです。力、歪センサとして感度が高く1Nの張力変化で4V程度の電圧出力が可能で、脈拍などの検出も可能です。また極細(φ0.4mm)でフレキシビリティに優れ、何mでも好きな長さにカットして、3次元的な凹凸のある場所に配置してセンシングできます。待機時にセンサは電力を消費せず低消費電力化にも対応します。

Selection and appraisals

引っ張る力(張力)により電圧が発生することから、通常の待機電力が必要なく、曲げや接触、振動などのセンサとしても利用できる。椅子の座面に貼ることで、人の脈拍や呼吸なども感知するほどの繊細さと、温度変化によって誘電体の分極(表面電荷)が変化しない非焦電性のため、インフラ系などでも利用可能など信頼性も高く、幅広い用途が期待できる。
