Alps Electric Co., Ltd. (TOKYO:6770; President: Toshihiro Kuriyama) will be exhibiting at Sensors Expo 2018, the industry’s largest show, on June 26 through 28 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California, USA. Alps Electric will be exhibiting at Sensors Expo 2018 and presenting their sensing devices for IoT and automotive. This year, Cirque Corporation, a subsidiary of Alps Electric will also exhibit their VR GripTM at the ALPS booth.
Exhibit Highlight :
• IoT Smart Modules
Integrating low-power, high-precision and compact sensors with a Bluetooth® communication module, these products are capable of acquiring pressure, temperature, humidity, ambient light and other environmental data, as well as six-axis (geomagnetism + acceleration) sensing.
A special app (for Android) is available for viewing data and changing sensing settings on a smartphone or tablet. In addition, radio certification has already been acquired for various regions around the world, allowing smooth, low-cost progression to demonstration testing.
At Sensors Expo 2018, we will also exhibit a Function Expansion Type enabling connection of an extra sensor.
• VR GripTM Platform
VR GripTM is Cirque’s finger position proximity sensing device with a high-resolution circle trackpad. This solution transforms a virtual reality controller, joystick or game controller into a fully touch sensitive surface.
In addition to tracking a user’s hand and fingers on the controller surface, proximity sensing also tracks finger position in the open space above the controller surface. This provides functionality similar to a glove tracking system, while maintaining the direct tactile feedback and trigger control of a controller. Unique custom flexible sensors allow this solution to fit into almost any industrial design.
