SDE048  |  Creating Cyber-Physical Social Networks

This technology connects people with shared interests. Users’ interest derives from a user’s current location in the physical world as well their browsing activity on the Web (virtual world) and are typically short lived. As a Cyber-Physical Social network, our platform enables fine grained context specific services while enabling users to discover one another.

SDE052  |  Driver Monitoring

A driver monitoring system utilizes sensors to monitor driver attentiveness. Such systems have been gradually introduced by car makers all over the world, in their bids to continuously improve road safety by preventing traffic accidents. The attentiveness includes drowsiness and concentration. If the driver is considered not paying attention to the road ahead and a dangerous situation is detected, the system will warn the driver (e.g. by flashing lights/ warning sounds). If no action is taken, the vehicle may intelligently apply the brakes. In our system, cameras are used. The system may also be applicable to fields other than automotive.

SDE091  |  Using Contextual Locations for Embedding Cloud Information in the Home

Placing information at specific locations in the home provides rich and intuitive ways for people to cope with information. They leverage context and meaning of the locations within the home. However, there is no deeper investigation yet on how users would embed digital cloud-based information into various locations in their homes, partly because previous systems were not robust enough to be deployed in real settings for extended periods of time. Our technology, a system of display blocks, was developed to integrate cloud information with contextually rich physical spaces. It was designed for long battery life, robust communication and simple interactions.

SDE078  |  Location & Group-based Promotions and Notifications

Location-based visitor engagement integrates in-venue engagement technologies (e.g., mobile advertising) with location-based services. The technology is used to pinpoint consumers’ location and provide location-specific advertisements on their mobile devices. Our solution not only supports easy provisioning and delivery of such location-based engagements but also allows such engagements to be customised based on additional attributes (e.g., number of members in a particular visitor group). A common use case for such engagements is the delivery of targeted promotions/advertisements.

SDE079  |  Seat Occupancy Detection using Capacitive Sensor

In many public access facilities, it is useful to get a clear indication, not just of overall occupancy of the facility, but which specific seat is occupied by a human being or not. In Singapore, people often leave personal objects to mark a seat as occupied, even though it may be against the facility policy. Our capacitive sensor technology is positioned unobtrusively below the table and is capable of discerning the occupancy of an inanimate object. Real-time occupancy technology can be used to track real-time occupancy, provide real-time guidance to waiting customers and schedule services when seats become available.
