Imagine your customer is expecting an important shipment. Now thinks of all the things that can go wrong before it arrives. With $15 million in misplaced packages a month alone, that worst case scenario is often an unfortunate reality. However, that’s also where the Internet of Things can go from buzzword to business benefit. Enter Hanhaa

A small startup with a big idea, Hanhaa wanted to revolutionize the logistics of shipping worldwide. That’s no easy feat, especially considering that the number of large-scale IoT projects doubled in the year 2017 alone. So, Azhar Hussain, co-founder and CEO of the London-based IoT business, knew he needed to get the company’s solution to market faster than the competition. Partnering with industry leaders like Avnet and TE Connectivity helped them develop a GPS-based package tracker that could not only reduce costs around lost and stolen packages, but also track location, temperature change and handling to increase customer satisfaction and delivery quality with near real-time data. “In IoT especially, a small mistake early in the design process can cost vast amounts of time and money further down the line,” said Paul Jones, Business Development Manager at Avnet Abacus. “Global product development is one of the most complex and resource-heavy endeavors you can take on—especially for IoT entrepreneurs.”

There has been so much hype around Intelligence Augmentation and Artificial Intelligence over the past few years. Most of the people believe these two as present and futuristic technologies for the world. But there are still lots of people who are unsure why we need them and what exact role each of the technology can play into their lives. This post will roll you over comparing Artificial Intelligence and Intelligence Augmentation and use of each in some real-time applications.

Tech Tats: Innovative Transformation of Wearables Technology into Electronic TattoosWe all know that wearable gadgets have evidently become a part of the mainstream technology and we have also seen how Biohacking implants modify a human body like nothing else. However, there is a concept that lies somewhere between wearables and Biohacking which is “Electronic Tattoos” or “Biotech Tattoos”.

These tattoos are epidermal electronics or thin, flexible patches of rubber containing equally flexible electronic components in the form of silicon wires measuring a few nanometers in thickness. These are much similar to the tattoos that we used to find in the bubblegum wrappers as kids, however, these adhere to the skin in a different way. The electronic tattoos look like circuitry-filled stickers, which collect vital information of the body to monitor the health of the wearer.

The convergence of different technologies always have unexpected and interesting results. The concept of altered reality is a perfect example of such convergence. There was a time when desktop computing was the only flagship of the computing world. In the era of desktop computing, the computers were meant to store and process real-world data and input-output devices were meant to let humans interact with computers.

  The design consists of a digital code lock which comprises of a Digital key pad with an LCD which will be used for entering the Passwords (10 Keys 5 Digit) to  enable the ignition to start the vehicle. Without the correct combination of the password the car is not supposed to start  ideally. This car will also be fitted with a GSM MODEM with an ability to send and receive SMS.

Line Follower RobotLine follower is an autonomous robot which follows either black line in white are or white line in black area. Robot must be able to detect particular line and keep following it. For special situations such as cross overs where robot can have more than one path which can be followed, predefined path must be followed by the robot. In the following section, we will discuss the line follower robot which follows black line in white area and take right turn whenever cross overs or Y shaped turn arrives.However with some minor suitable changes, users can make robot for other possibilities also.

Transformerless Power Supply

Diode SymbolOne of the major problems that is to be solved in an electronic circuit design is the production of low voltage DC power supply from AC to power the circuit. [[wysiwyg_imageupload::]]The conventional method is the use of a step-down transformer to reduce the 230 V AC to a desired level of low voltage AC. The most suitable and low cost method is the use of aVoltage Dropping Capacitor in series with the phase line. Selection of the Dropping capacitor and the circuit design requires some technical knowledge and practical experience to get the desired voltage and current.
