Tech in Asia Wrap-up

Our booth at TIA was pretty popular.

Our booth at TIA was pretty popular with lots of gadgets to explore.

Last week we set up our booth at the Tech in Asia Tokyo 2016 startup fair. During two days, Japanese and international founders, developers, marketing experts, investors, recruiters and many more roamed the two big halls at Shibuya Gardens Bellesalle. It was a great experience for us to get in touch with potential investors and network with industry experts.

At our booth we highlighted some of our technologies such as our new line of sensors. Besides providing a hands-on experience with our Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs), we showcased our virtual reality headset and wireless controller. These use our sensor fusion technology to combine data from IMUs and a camera-based positioning system to obtain precise, reliable positioning and tracking for a room-scale VR system.

Our booth was pretty popular and throughout the day many curious visitors came to try out the wireless sensor function by themselves. They could hold our new LPMS-B2 Bluetooth sensor in their hands, turn it around and see its tracking in real time on a flatscreen.

See you again next year!

We gave a short presentation at TIA about sensor fusion and our new AR system.

“Going through their portfolio feels like browsing the future.”

Tech in Asia featured us on their blog

Tech in Asia featured us on their blog

We were featured on the Tech in Asia blog as one of eight startups with fresh approaches, ranging from restaurant recommendations via Instagram to a wearable camera that takes pictures with the blink of an eye.

And that is what they said about us:

“This promising startup develops advanced sensor technology, and is currently working on creating a novel type of AR goggles. Their sensitive 3D orientation sensors can be used in different fields from sports to medicine, and even function in naval environments. LP-Research frequently collaborates with other players in hi-tech solutions, from accurately navigating autonomous drones for the European Space Agency to creating innovative solutions for human-device interaction with Google ATP. Going through their portfolio feels like browsing the future.”

Thank you so much, we are so happy!

Tech in Asia Tokyo 2016 has started today. Please come by and visit us in our booth on Wednesday, September 7. Looking forward!

LP-RESEARCH at Slush Asia

With Tech in Asia being held this week, it is never too late to let you know that we also attended Slush Asia at Tokyo’s Makuhari Messe in May 2016. Two days of networking, catching up with old friends and meeting new folks to hear about their exciting projects. At our booth we presented our new generation of sensors to many very interested visitors.

Attendants could also get a glimpse of our two new projects currently in the making that involve VR and AR: One is a high-definition hardware and software development kit for Augmented Reality; the other is an a IMU/optical tracking system development kit for both Virtual and Augmented Reality applications. Stay tuned for more!

Race Car Stabilization – Team StarCraft at the Formula Student Germany

Team StarCraft’s race car

From August 8-14 Team StarCraft of German Technische Universität Ilmenau participated at the Formula Student Germany – International Design Competition. Among many other teams from around the world they took on various challenges including acceleration and endurance races. Sensors such as the IMU (inertial measurement unit) from LP-RESEARCH offered valuable data about air pressure, vertical acceleration and magnetic field strength, which the racing team needed to regulate their traction control in order to perform well. The students used our LPMS-CU to control the car’s Torque Vectoring and the Anti-slip Regulation (ASR).
For next year’s race they will be back with an even more refined car!

Our Next Generation of Low-cost IMU Devices Has Arrived

The new LPMS CURS2 sensor

We proudly launched the next generation of our LPMS inertial measurement units developed for fast and accurate 3D orientation sensing. LP-RESEARCH supports a variety of communication interfaces and housing options at low cost. Let us tell you more about the optimized features:

  • The new sensors are roughly half the size of the previous production, especially if you take a look at the new LPMS-B2.
  • Performance has been greatly increased in terms of accuracy. The noise level is now one third of the previous version.
  • Higher sampling rate: We were able to bring the sampling rate up to 400Hz.
  • The new sensors feature more types of data output, for example humidity.
  • Both LPMS-CANAL2 and LPMS-RS232AL2 are encased in a rugged aluminum housing and are waterproof up to 1m (IP67).
  • The first generation comprised seven sensors, now we increased the line to nine with greater variety.
  • Finally, thanks to a different manufacturing process, our new generation cost half or even less than half the price of the previous version.
