Unitech visual integrated platform can become the command center of the smart household control and also plays a role to communicate both inside and outside. Through the modulized design, it can extend and combine different functions, such as scenario control, information release/ inquiry, video/audio conversation, burglarproof alarm, mobile surveillance and so on. Besides the household functions, it controls the current situation of home security to fit the need of the modern people. The IPCamera based household visual integrated platform is simple to assemble and has the merits of the digital image delivering and remote network monitoring.
Now, the soft ware technologies VoIP/V2oIP and IP Cam of III have integrated with hardware platforms MT680 and MT380 by Unitech to provide the whole package of smart household integrated application. Video telephone services featuring high-speed image delivery allow end users to converse through MT680 and MT380 and in the future, to check all the household status including people, things and goods via mobile devices.
The portable device with a built-in inertia system such as the acceleration rule and the electronic compass can detect the users’ step counts, the length of the step and the moving direction to trace the walking tracks of the users. In the high-rise urban area, the buildings have caused a serious multiple-routing effect so that the GPS signals shift constantly. Integrating GPS signals with the track marks of the inertia system can eliminate the GPS signals that deviate too much and increase the stability of navigation.
Chinese Speaking Self-Learning System is the first language training system to combine the computer oral conversation service with the human teacher oral training model. The learners can learn to speak Chinese by the Chinese Speaking self-Learning System or through human teacher online distant learning.
Computer self-learning is to combine the digital teaching materials with the pronunciation grading engine. Learners can begin to speak Chinese following the oral reading and reciting of the computer to master the correct pronunciation. By way of human teacher online distant learning, the students can use the video network to converse simultaneously with the teacher to learn the most difficult and mistaken pronunciations.
Stress can cause a man’s whole body tensed unconsciously, the autonomic nerves disordered, the immune system weakened and the endocrine system disordered. When the problem of the autonomic nerves disorder caused by stress-confronting syndrome becomes so common, people, besides the help from psychiatric prescription, can also try to seek non-medical approaches to learn to relax. This product uses an Emotion Ring to measure the surface temperature of a finger to gain the physiological feedback mechanism to learn to relax. The purpose is to integrate the medical science theories with the advanced RF technology to provide a light, handy, portable and user-friendly RF Emotion Ring to achieve the group therapy as well as the home treatment.
Augmented Reality refers the computer monitor that puts virtual information to the users’ sense perception. Compared to the virtual reality, the augmented reality is a concept of mixing the virtual reality with the real environment. While users are put in a real environment, the mathematical calculation ability of the computer can draw the virtual objects in a real space so as to blend the virtual objects into the real world. In this kind of concept, users will receive the real and virtual information simultaneously including the virtual technology driven multiple perception feedback and the real sense of space so as to raise the understanding of the environment for the users and provide multi-tiered interactions.
The Augmented Reality technology can provide consumers to arrange virtual furniture in a real household environment and feel free to alter the customizing factors such as the styles, colors, materials and sizes. Through the display of the lifelike 3-D furniture model, consumers’ desire for purchasing can be raised.
Respiratory care Clinical Information System, or RCIS, is a clinical medical treatment information operation integration system aiming to be the patient-centered and clinical path-routing designed respiratory care. The functions include patient physiological information collection, patient status surveillance, computer assisted nursing record and course of disease recording and editing. The hospitals applying the system can accomplish the combined results of lowering the risk of the occurrences of medical treatment negligence while enhancing the quality of medical treatment. Adding to the long-distant medical treatment consulting service, the RCIS can proactively inform the hospitals to carry out ventilator weaning training when the patient is getting better and on the contrary, assist the hospitals to consult with specialty doctors for second opinion on diagnoses or procedures when the patient’s condition is deteriorating.
The system is a surveillance system that combines a pantoscopic video camera with a wider range of surveillance with a PTZ video camera which has a position changeable and focal adjustable lens. In the films taken from the pantoscopic video camera, it employs an academic collaborated mathematic calculating method which can extract and track the foreground object. The foreground object extracted can be used in the commonly seen surveillance application such as the crossing of the security line or the statistics on the population flow. Since the pantoscopic video camera sometimes can get unclear images of the foreground object, the coordinates of the object can now be shifted to PTZ video camera to enlarge the indistinct part so as to achieve the outcomes of gaining clearer images of the incident and tracking the incident automatically.
When the groceries in the RFID enabled supermarket are added the RFID tags, the cashiers will no longer need to use the traditional barcode reader to scan the commodities but use the RFID reader instead to exploit the innovative value-added applications such as to inquire the production and marketing resume on the tags of the goods, identify the genuine and sham of the goods and pay up fast and automatically. An RFID tag can store the information ten times more than that in a barcode. When the product is embedded with an RFID tag during production, the RFID tag can carry the information containing the production resume and the shipping flow of the product. Through the Kiosk or the mobile devices, such as a PDA or a cell phone, embedded with the RFID reader, the consumers can inquire the production and logistics information of the goods on their shopping lists and acquire a safer and easier purchasing experience.
The 3-in-1 Smart Pay is a small amount paying tool applicable to 26 bankers to solve the problems such as too many cards held by a consumer, the inconvenience of interchangeability or the incomprehensibility of purchase behavior during the dealing process. Through the CRM system, the stores can record the transaction information automatically while the customers are paying the bill. The stores can also use the card to identify the customer and analyze the purchasing habits. To customers, the stores can again use this card as a membership card to provide a corresponding bonus campaign and loyalty management to combine the paying tool with the membership card for the customers to shop and rebate with just one card.
The RFID Enabling Application Platform plays the major role to enable the RFID technology to integrate the virtual information world with the real object environment. The Document Tracking System is an integral service operation model aiming to trace documents of the operation flow, management, inquiry and discard. Through the RFID specialty and the practical experiences of the Tranz Tecnologies, Inc., the document tracking system can integrate the applied technology to the RFID Enabling Application Platform of the III with RFID Reader facilities represented and developed by the Unitech Electronics Co., Ltd. to carry out the Document Tracking System Using RFID Technology that developed by the Crown Van Lines Co., Ltd. to replace some of the laboring work by technological devices and control the processing status of the document tracking system more precisely.
This platform has successfully transferred the techniques to many domestic information providers such as ERI, Champteck Inc. and Tranz Tecnologies, Inc. and so on. Besides the joint RFID application cases and practical experiences, it also enables further control to the core technology of the RFID software platform.
Body Go is an interactive entertaining system. It is equipped with hardware devices including an optical projector, a video camera, a server and a large-sized projection screen.
