INTEL MAKERS CLUB: INTEL TALENT SEARCH
Intel Makers Club – this is not an event, and the club of young inventors and developers actively and productively supported by Intel, not only technologically, but also, more importantly, information, advice, engineering support. That this conference, which was held on September 17 and was dedicated – young talents.
In the role of the speakers at the conference Intel Makers Club participated Bernadette Andrietta, vice president of Intel, director of marketing in the region EMEA, Dmitry Konash, regional director of Intel in Russia and other CIS countries, Semen Cockroaches, Head of Internet of Things technology accelerator “NavigatorKampus “Paul Kurbatskii, one of the developers of devices based on Galileo and winner of the competition Intel ISEF 2013.
The first of the new paradigms of development decisions of Intel’s prototype, to support young talents, and at the same time and wearable electronics, said Bernadette Andrietta. According to her, the development of devices and platforms for prototyping – Intel Galileo and Edison – an important milestone in the history of Intel, since it is such forms of teaching programming and the design of devices and mechanisms will have to bear fruit in the future.
Especially curious memories were Intel vice president about his childhood, when she had a desire to explore the designers LEGO, but it summed up the floor – did not find the parents, it is a worthy occupation for girls. Partly why the project Makers Club – «club creators” – is so important.
Next turn passed to the people, who are more closely involved “meykerstvom” in our country – and Demetrius Konash by Intel, and the representative of a more mature generation of startups Semen Cockroaches, and one of the brightest members’ club creators “Paul Kurbatskii.
Dmitry Konash more detailed the issues related to the development of the program of familiarizing pupils and students to work with platforms from Intel, Semen Cockroaches spoke about the need to support children interested in technology, not only technically, but also information. But the main guest was, perhaps, Paul Kurbatskii – his device in the form of a tablet for the visually impaired have already gone beyond the prototype and after some time will become a real product.
In addition to the product of Paul, the exhibition of inventions present some more interesting products based on Intel Galileo, which we mention in the general queue.
TABLET FOR THE VISUALLY IMPAIRED
Author: Paul Kurbatskii (MSTU. Bauman, Moscow).
The creator of the tablet for visually impaired people Paul Kurbatskii previously developed a number of devices for blind people: electronic thermometer for the deaf-blind, walking stick, allowing you to scan the surrounding area and give signals about the obstacles and the points for the construction of the route due to the audio signal. At the plate, the development of which Paul is now engaged, has managed to implement a function to support the simulator to study Braille: headphones user broadcast corresponding to the key combinations to them the letter.
GLOVES AND SOFTWARE FOR sign language
Author: Ilya Makarychev (school №85, Nizhny Novgorod).
Project Galileo Gloves – smart technologies created in order to give people with speech impairments to communicate freely with others without the help of a sign language interpreter. Author of the project proposed to solve the problem of communication with the help of smart glove capable of recognizing sign language, to translate it into Russian and displays the text on the screen of an electronic device. On the glove fastened with 4 sensors that measure the degree of bending of each finger and tilt sensor, fixing the position of the brush. The program receives readings from these sensors and filters the noise, then the sketch defines the correspondence between the testimony and the specific
letter and displays it on the display.
Authors: Natalia Pryakhina Alexei Solokhin (HSE, Nizhny Novgorod).
Klugschrank (Smart wardrobe) – is a modern interpretation of the American concept of «walk-in closet», implying that the clothes should not be stored on the shelves in the closet, and in the dressing room. Smart wardrobe yourself put your things and will give you the selected outfit, make a simple and convenient collection of all the wardrobe, make recommendations, taking into account the weather and will provide access to online clothes shopping. The need to spend time searching for the right things will be gone – just a couple of clicks, and the desired article of clothing would be in your hands.
Authors: Maxim Moulin (NSTU name REAlexeev, Nizhny Novgorod), Julia Nezhdanoff (UNN the NI Lobachevsky Nizhny Novgorod).
Authors of the project Check + proposed the concept of a smart refrigerator that can remind the owner to purchase products ending. Technical implementation is to create a special platform, equipped with a variety of sensors that transmit information about the weight of the product on the device to collect and analyze information (card Intel® Galileo), after which the information is transmitted to a PC or mobile device, which displays the presence of a particular product.
Author: Artem Zhukovsky (school №1301, Moscow).
Work on the project was carried out jointly with the engineers Intel. Presented a prototype of an intelligent machine already knows how to recognize and avoid obstacles, and soon to be added to its functionality, the ability to move to a predetermined route.
Authors: Anton Korovin, Dmitry Belyaev (gymnasium №4, Podolsk).
Smart home, or Galileo Stirling Solar Energy – building project with the function of the independent power supply. In the development of the Stirling engine is used to convert solar energy into electrical energy, as well as elements of intelligent position control of solar panels, depending on the angle of illumination. Intelligent system monitors the position of the sun and, on this basis, turn mounted on the roof of the smart home solar panel. This increases the percentage of direct sunlight on the panel, and thus increases the efficiency and solar panels, which in turn reduces the cost of manufactured
All the projects are based on the platforms of the Galileo and Edison from Intel – ultracompact solutions based on processors Intel Quark. If the first platform, which bears the name of the founder of experimental physics is rather breadboard, a personal center of prototyping devices, here’s a full-sized computer with a card SD, bearing the name of one of the greatest inventors and entrepreneurs of the XX century – the database to create wearable electronics and so-called Internet of Things .
It is expected that Intel Edison until the end of the yeaViewing:-278
