Alps Electric IoT Smart Modules (Graphic: Business Wire)

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.
