Embedded systems is one of the most important, yet overlooked subjects in the electronics world. When you think technology, mobile phones, tablets and laptops come to mind, but the devices that actually help us in our daily lives are not talked too much about. They’re often confused with larger or more general purpose computers, and it’s sometimes difficult to discern between one and the other. However, once you understand what embedded systems are used for, and for that matter defined as, it’s pretty easy to see what is used where. Here’s all you need to know about embedded systems, its history, types, characteristics and more! [Read more…]
Before we dive into what Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) are, it’s important to understand what hybrid vehicles are. Any vehicle that has two or more distinct power sources can be called a hybrid vehicle. So technically, vehicles which use both petrol/diesel and CNG can also be termed hybrids, although we tend to use the term to define more eco-friendly transportation. So what are Hybrid Electric Vehicles? These are vehicles that combine a usual internal combustion engine as well as an electric propulsion system. [Read more…]
Virtual Reality, also known as immersive multimedia, is an artificially created environment used for a variety of purposes, entertainment or otherwise. It basically simulates one’s presence in real or imagined worlds, often simulating sights and sounds, but sometimes also touch, smell and more. Although most prefer the term ‘virtual environment’, both are interchangeably used. There are basically two general rules when it comes to virtual reality, rather two requirements before anything can be termed a virtual reality. [Read more…]
Lenticular lenses are an innovation that are simple in principle, but used in complex applications. It is basically an array of magnifying lenses, arranged in such a way that depending on the angle you view it, different images are magnified.Remember those interesting posters or pictures that seemed to create a 3D effect or changed when you moved around? Those used a technology called lenticular printing, which in turn use lenticular lenses to produce an illusion of depth or multiple images.
As we know that Zigbee technology is the most popular standard for home automation and short range wireless personal area networks (WPAN’s), similarly Android is the widespread tablet and smart phone technology. Enabling Zigbee and Android technologies in one platform, we can exploit an efficient control system than using individual technology. Thus, this article is intended to give a brief idea of interfacing Zigbee communication to the Android control application based real time projects.
It is a step-up for the Edgefx to come up with the concept of white paper to provide surplus information on one particular topic for the readers. We feel very happy and excited for introducing this type of information as a wholesome matter to our beloved readers to encourage, motivate and teach them technically. [Read more…]
Swarm robotics is a very interesting concept in robotics that depends not on singularly advanced or smart artificial intelligence, but intelligence in numbers. In terms of robotics, it involves mostly simple physical robots that exhibit complex behavior by interaction with each other, or with the environment as a whole. Inspired by the phenomenon observed in some insects, birds and animals called swarm intelligence, swarm robotics uses similar principles, relying on constant feedback and a de-centralized structure. The term ‘swarm’ is generally applied to insects, but can also be used to refer to other animals exhibiting similar behavior. While still in its infancy, swarm robotics has a huge potential in diverse areas, and could fundamentally change how we deal with automation and robotics in general. [Read more…]
Touchscreens are electronic displays-cum-input devices used in a wide variety of devices today. Over the past few years, touchscreens went from a technological fantasy to something so widespread that it’s now considered standard. Go back a few decades, and touchscreens would be looked at as nothing short of magic. Yet here we are, using them in our daily lives. It’s quite wondrous to think that technology is advancing so rapidly that in a couple of years, even what we consider impossible now would be very much doable. If you’ve ever wondered about how this technology works, you’ve come to the right place!
Teaching, instructing, leading and guiding a group of people is not a simple task, and it doesn’t give any sense without proper knowledge, approach and practice. We being a pioneer in engineering projects’ development offer electronic solutions and services and take pride in being officially recognized and certified company. Nevertheless technical responsibility prompts and makes us to think out of the box, and stand us in a different way for building projects that produce efficient and qualitative products. [Read more…]
HDMI stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface. Introduced in 2003 to work with the then upcoming high definition content, HDMI is more than just a cable, it’s actually a set of rules, an interface that connects multiple devices and lets them communicate with increased fidelity. [Read more…]
