IdTechEx USA – Here We Come!

 

IoT - IDTechEx USA

We love our road shows! And this week is no exception. Join us in Silicon Valley, CA for the IDTechEx USA show!

We are at Booth #T36.

We will be featured in a few different application areas:

  • Wearables
  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Sensors

Oh yes, and stay connected to us on Twitter this week to see the highlights!

Mid-IR LEDs and what we learned at Sensors

Sensors Expo 2017 was a great event, as expected, and we connected with some great people. We were pleasantly surprised with the interest in, and enthusiasm for, mid-IR LED sensors. The prominent market demands that stood out for us included a few surprises.

Top areas of interest at the conference:

Automobile sensing – clean air cabins is a hot topic and the car industry is moving faster than we have ever experienced to install sensors for CO2, VOCs and more. What a refreshing change!

Smart Cities – San Jose has been on board for a bit but many other urban areas around Smart Citythe globe are using IoT technology and, more specifically, gas sensing technology on lamp posts to detect carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, ground level ozone, sulfur dioxide, and gas leaks.

Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart Buildings – smart HVAC can sense CO2, VOCs and other gases to save money and keep people thinking & functioning better. It’s kind of a big deal.

Wearables – between smart watches, smart phones, smart suits, and other devices, health sensing seems to be on the fast track, sensing everything from your heart rate to glucose to ethanol.

Robots – need we say more?!?

And guess what?

Our own patented QuiC SLED technology can be fine tuned at various mid-IR wavelengths to sense all of these and more!

Funny CO2 Sensing Story

Our CO2 sensing demonstration seemed to malfunction a bit, or so we thought, at the end of the first day of the expo. The next morning, when the demonstration oscilloscope peaked better than before, we realized that the levels of CO2 in the exhibition hall were impacting our ability to run our own demonstration…. No wonder everyone was dragging by the end of the day!

For more information about our mid-IR LEDs and how you can use them to improve your gas sensing products, contact us to discuss your specific sensing needs.

mid-ir leds can help pollution

You don’t make money sitting in traffic

Technology innovations advance at breakneck speed all around us, with widgets and chips for every device on the planet becoming nearly obsolete shortly after going to market. So it is tempting to want to bypass the technology Autobahn and stay on roads you are most familiar with despite the congestion. But as Wayne Huizenga, founder of three Fortune 500 companies, and six NYSE listed companies reminds us, “you don’t make money sitting in traffic.”

mid-ir leds can help pollution

Terahertz Device Corporation is the leader in Mid-infrared LED advancements and will help you avoid all the “traffic delays” to grow your business successfully. Our QuiC SLED™ (quantum cascade superlattice LEDs) enable and enhance your applications in chemical and gas sensing, thermal imaging, night vision, spectroscopy, biophotonics, medical sensing, and communications.

Is climate change in your mission? Are you in global warming regulation and compliance?

Do you want to save money with more efficient CO2 monitoring in smart building and smart home applications?

Are you in oil and gas production, manufacturing, and distribution with needs in widespread methane and other compound sensing?

Would you like to be the first in the wearable device markets to monitor blood glucose and other biomarkers in skin?

With so many applications, our technology can get you out of traffic and to the next level; because as Wayne Huizenga also shares: “Some people dream of success, while other people get up every morning and make it happen.”
