Natural User Interface is new way for interaction with digital world.
The ability to control device with Natural User interface alone has a broad range of application in IoT and beyond.
We connect real world through internet in open source, ecologic and sustainable way.
We want to shake User Experience with our products up.
We imagine technology with fresh design as a natural extension of the man. This is User Experience Revolution.
Next Industries designs and manufactures high accuracy data acquisition loggers, gateway and sensors provided with Internet of Things technology. Thanks to wireless connectivity our device is able to communicate with cloud , to manage alarm or notifications.
The value of technology is being at people’s free disposal,especially for applications like energy production,work safety or structural health monitoring.
Through our work we add value to technology, offering innovative products in respect of the earth; wireless, low power and small size devices for “smart cities” management. Landslide events in environmental applications or strain in a pipeline can be monitored with our sensors and loggers. The data sending is made thanks to the gateway and through internet the user can view data and analyze them.
Smart cities means for us “connectivity city” and technology must be an added value for people, especially for applications like energy production, work safety or structural health monitoring.
The SEAMLESS project stems from the need to innovate the consultation of data detected by monitoring sensors of three-dimensional structures, to allow a more effective analysis.
He then focused on developing a solution to navigate and view three-dimensional data in an immediate and intuitive way. As an innovative solution to the problem, the project proposed a coupling between immersive reality and gesture recognition, through the connection of an immersive data visualization environment with a gesture controller, i.e. a wearable device that allows you to interact in a gestural way with the three-dimensional representation of data to consult.
Data relating to three-dimensional structures are naturally more intuitive when represented in three dimensions, but 3D visualizations are more difficult to understand if they cannot be manipulated and spatially navigated. Immersive data navigation can be particularly useful in the SHM (Structural Health Monitoring) field, taking into consideration that the monitored phenomena are related to even large architectures and that the sensors are physically arranged on the structure to be monitored: the reproduction of a model 3D of the structure with scalable dimensions, on which to highlight the amplitude of the phenomena detected by the individual sensors in their exact positioning, can in fact provide a more effective view than the usual ones that typically use statistical dashboards. Thanks to the use of immersive reality, the user can vary his point of view both by moving and turning his gaze in all directions. The goal is to provide both an immediacy of use and an overview of the structure under observation.
SEAMLESS è stato realizzato nel 2018 da un’aggregazione di imprese supportate nell’attività di Ricerca e Sviluppo dal Politecnico di Milano, attraverso un progetto finanziato a valere sul Bando “Smart Living” (Regione Lombardia, DGR X/5520 del 2 agosto 2016 modificato e integrato con DGR X/6811 del 30 giugno 2017).
