Educational Management Leaders Partner to Improve the Quality and Simplify Real-time Data Management and Reporting
WORCESTER, Mass. (PRWEB) October 24, 2017
Building on their history of serving school districts with exceptional student-centric services, Central Massachusetts Collaborative (CMC) is extending its capacity to help all Massachusetts schools manage the quality, timeliness, and reporting of Massachusetts SIF data. In doing so, they have partnered with a leading provider of student information management systems, Computer Resources, LLC, an expert in the management of District/State reporting relationships, and provider of core student information systems.
“Computer Resources provides a core suite of tools that make it possible to scale student information management to serve every individual student better, while streamlining the complex processes around state reporting,” says Leo Brehm, CIO of CMC. “With the efficiencies we find working with Computer Resources, we can extend hands-on data management services to districts across Massachusetts so they can focus their own staff on building better learning environments.”
Computer Resources’ core SIS, and Vision Dashboarding and Reporting software, uses data from district-wide applications to provide comprehensive insight into trends affecting student success. The CR SIS gives educators a highly flexible interface to enter and manage student data, while CR Vision allows schools to quality-check data from multiple district applications before it’s submitted to the state, saving time that’s often absorbed in error resolution after the fact. The CR SIF Agent provides a reliable communications channel with state agencies.
“Computer Resources has been serving schools for over a generation, by not only providing the tools and services they need to manage student data, but also to help manage their relationship with states and accreditation agencies,” said Mike Bronder, Executive Director of Computer Resources. “Partnering with other expert organizations like CMC helps magnify our experience so we can reach more schools, and ultimately help them streamline administrative tasks so they can stay centered on their students’ progress.”

Carriers see results from evidence-based Driver Rewards and Driver Survey platforms
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (PRWEB) October 31, 2017
Stay Metrics, a leading provider of evidence-based driver engagement, training and retention solutions for motor carriers, reports that its clients significantly outperformed their peers for driver retention during a pivotal second quarter.
The American Trucking Associations reported driver turnover at large carriers increased by 16 percentage points to reach 90 percent, and turnover at small carriers (under $30 million in revenue) increased 19 points to reach an 85 percent annualized rate from April to June.
Stay Metrics reports that clients that use its Driver Rewards and full suite of Driver Survey products saw a a small tick in driver turnover by two percentage points, on average, from 58 percent to 60 percent from Q1 to Q2. Stay Metrics used the same method as ATA to calculate turnover rate.
“Driver turnover surged as freight demand picked up in the second quarter. We are pleased to see our customers significantly outperform the industry," said Tim Hindes, co-founder and chief executive officer of Stay Metrics.
Hindes continued, “We attribute this to the fact that many of the carriers who partner with us already have a driver-centered culture or are intent on building one. Using the data-driven platforms, driver survey feedback, and insights we provide, our clients are then able to further improve the experience of drivers at their companies. In turn, their drivers are more likely to stay.
The Driver Survey platform from Stay Metrics includes 7-day and 45-day onboarding surveys to identify the early expectations, experiences, and satisfaction levels of new drivers to help prevent early-stage turnover. The platform includes an annual Driver Satisfaction survey that shows carriers their areas of strength and weakness based on peer grouping and year-over-year trend analysis, as well as Exit Interviews that capture the reasons why drivers leave — in their own words.
Stay Metrics Driver Rewards is a custom online platform that uses evidence-based rewards, recognition and driver engagement tools to encourage loyalty to a carrier. Drivers accumulate points in various rewards categories and redeem them towards thousands of non-cash items ranging from movie tickets to vacation packages.
Family members of drivers often become involved in the program and advocate the driver to stay with a carrier to reap the benefits of the rewards, recognition, and status the driver has earned.
“More carriers increased their focus on driver retention as the winds changed direction in the second quarter,” added Hindes. “The rise in freight demand, ELD rule compliance and other factors have created challenging conditions for driver recruiting and the conditions will likely continue into 2018. The good news - based upon our clients' results - is that carriers can be successful despite these headwinds."
About Stay Metrics
The Stay Metrics driver engagement platform helps trucking companies engage, reward and keep their best drivers. Stay Metrics offers an industry-leading suite of driver feedback interviews and surveys, combined with advanced data analytics and predictive modeling focused on driver retention. Driver engagement is further enhanced when carriers use a custom-branded loyalty rewards program developed by Stay Metrics to recognize driver performance. The platform also supports safety and wellness training and serves as a communication and resources hub for drivers. Learn more about Stay

In light of recent performance issues among cloud-based services, Constellix has reported a surge in adoption of ITO (Internet Traffic Optimization) services among clients using multi-cloud networks.
RESTON, Va. (PRWEB) October 31, 2017
Constellix, a DNS management service, reports a substantial shift in the adoption of performance routing services like ITO (Internet Traffic Optimization) to manage complex cloud-based systems.
The cloud is inherently unpredictable and constantly shifting. This has necessitated a new breed of management services that can dynamically update configurations as our cloud services change.
ITO, or Internet Traffic Optimization, is a new kind of management solution that operates at the DNS (Domain Name System). When ITO is enabled for a domain, monitoring constantly capture the real-time status of IP addresses or systems the domain is pointing to. If a system is underperforming or down, ITO will automatically reroute traffic to a better performing system.
“We have seen widespread adoption of Internet Traffic Optimization services over the past year, helping organizations improve the performance of their multi-cloud networks on a global scale,” says President of Constellix Steven Job.
Earlier this year, Constellix released their own automated performance routing service called ITO Record Pools. Users can create pools of endpoints, like IP addresses or hostnames, and enabled ITO to only return the fastest performing endpoint(s). Most clients are using ITO to balance traffic across multiple CDN’s on a regional or global level.
The most common use case for ITO is multi-CDN management. CDN’s have dynamic endpoints that change based on the location of an end-user. ITO can automatically route users to the fastest CDN, delivering shorter load times and more reliable connections.
Constellix is a subsidiary of Tiggee, the creators of DNS Made Easy, and the industry leader in providing IP Anycast enterprise DNS services. Constellix is an Internet Traffic Optimization (ITO) company and trailblazer in next-generation traffic management solutions. The Constellix GeoDNS platform offers the most powerful and precise DNS query management, engineered for the cloud. The platform is fully integrated with Constellix Sonar, which offers a range of advanced monitoring features and intelligent analytics tools.

Live on Kickstarter, Totm+Travl opens up a world of possibilities with a HomeKit compatible dock for the Apple Watch.
Paris, France (PRWEB) October 31, 2017
Totm+Travl, the revolutionary new 3-in-1 dock, power bank and home automation kit for the Apple Watch, is live on global crowdfunding platform Kickstarter and trending fast having already more than doubled their raise goal.
Totm+Travl by Padawanlab is a beautiful new minimalistic take on the Apple Watch Docks, offering clean aesthetics and packed with a ton of hidden functionality. The two-part system consists of the Apple Watch Dock, Totm, which is made of Oak derived from French forests and Travl, a smart power bank bursting with features and able to perform several home automation tasks. When stacked, Totm+Travl becomes quite simply, the best Apple Watch dock on the market.
“Our biggest disappointment with the Apple Watch was the mandatory daily charge needed to keep the watch up and running followed by a cable that can never sit correctly on a nightstand. So, we started to think about how we could improve these flaws,” says co-founder Louis Bacquet on the inspiration behind the project. “We began to create several wood supports in our designer’s garage. After several prototypes, Totm was born. With Travl we wanted to go a step further. Why Stop with just a dock? With the development of IOT and connected houses we wanted to be sure that our product could seamlessly merge fashion and function.”
The killer feature for the Totm+Travl is fully integrated automation that works with Apple’s HomeKit. Automations can be set up to be triggered whenever the watch is plugged in, when a charge ends, and when the watch is unplugged. These triggers can be further customized by days of the week, timeframes and even location.
By connecting Totm+Travl to an IFTTT account a user will have access to hundreds of services/channels that offer IOT support which means the triggers can be synced with everything from Spotify accounts, smart lights, thermostats and more. In addition, Travl is exclusively managed via the companion app. Through this app, users can check live data, manage home automations, check charge history and more.
"Since you have to charge your Apple Watch every day or two, why not turn this mundane pattern into something that’s actually useful? That’s where Totm+Travl disrupts the traditional dock's value proposition,” adds Bacquet. “Instead of just being a ‘place to put my watch onto when it charges’… It becomes a ‘place to put my watch and trigger ‘x’ action.’ With services like IFTTT, imagination is the only limitation.”
The Totm+Travl is currently live and available to support on Kickstarter: http://totmtravl.co/ks
Padawanlab is an indie Studio founded in 2015 and is also the meet up of Friendship, Partnership and Family. The 3 co-founders of Padawanlab are all related and enjoy working together on their passion: Technology and Apple Products.

Hayver Corporation, a digital healthcare platform, is dedicated to combating the national opioid, drug and alcohol epidemic through the use of its revolutionary smartphone application and behavior modification platform. Second Chance is a sober-living residential community designed to provide guidance and support for people in early substance abuse recovery.
“Accountability for one’s own actions is critical, which is why we began working with Hayver for our alumni program,” states Debbie Cohen, Executive Director of Second Chance. “When our clients exit Second Chance, they re-enter a less structured environment, and we believe the Hayver smartphone platform is perfect to keep accountability in their lives, with the people closest to them.”
Located in Atlanta, Georgia, the sober living facility provides a safe, structured atmosphere that facilitates transitioning into everyday life. Second Chance encourages residents to embrace ownership of their behavioral responses, establish healthful routines, including social connection through weekly community meetings, and participate in physical fitness and nutrition programs. A health club membership is offered at Youfit Health Clubs for no additional fee.
Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer of Hayver, John Copenhaver, M.D., vouched for Hayver’s ability to augment and support the recovery process initiated at Second Chance. “Patients are usually limited to only around 30 to 45 days at treatment centers, due to insurance and other factors,” says Dr. Copenhaver. “This is nowhere near the 18 months of complete abstinence that is required for an individual to fully recover from damage done to the brain during opioid, drug or alcohol addiction.”
Dr. Copenhaver adds, “Second Chance gives the individual continued support, accountability and time for the brain to continue its healing process. Based on a scientifically proven methodology, through the random possibility of a drug and alcohol screen, the Hayver smartphone and behavior change platform gives the individual structure to maintain their recovery. Partnering with quality recovery residences like Second Chance, and utilizing today’s technology, as well as traditional modalities, form a complete recovery infrastructure.”
Second Chance features two programs—one is dedicated to helping men and women age 21 and above, and the other program is designed for the older adult age 50 or more. The Older Adults Program addresses specific concerns related to recovery care and aging. Both support systems offer individual and group counseling facilitated by a credentialed substance abuse counselor. The programs are based on the Alcoholics Anonymous 12-Step model.
Second Chance Recovery Residences provide fully furnished apartments with internet access, cable television, and washer/dryer units in each suite. Bedrooms and bathrooms are shared with one additional resident.The facility is located off GA-400 and the Northridge Road exit and is accessible to public transportation, including MARTA. Second Chance is also located near several 12-Step community meeting locations.
HAYVER provides a revolutionary, first-of-its-kind verification technology to monitor those suffering from drug addiction or alcoholism, to ensure they are drug-free and alcohol-free. Hayver is based on new research that demonstrates how to heal an addict's brain, through well-tested proven methods that can ensure 78 percent of people are clean even after five years. With daily check-ins, a unique Circle of Support™ (an accountability group), and random urine screens, Hayver’s advanced analytics provides proven relapse prevention to ensure those addicted to drugs or alcohol get clean, stay clean and improve their long-term recovery success.

The biennial SPIE Optifab drew nearly 2,000 world experts to Rochester, New York, for a conference and an exhibition presenting the latest technologies and applications in advanced manufacturing. The event was sponsored by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, and cosponsored by APOMA, the American Precision Optics Manufacturers Association.
BELLINGHAM, Wash. and ROCHESTER, N.Y. (PRWEB) October 31, 2017
Nearly 2,000 researchers, engineers, applications developers, equipment designers, and suppliers convened in the “cradle of optics in the U.S.” — Rochester — earlier this month to see the latest in optical technologies for advanced manufacturing at SPIE Optifab.
The biennial event, sponsored by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, and cosponsored by APOMA, the American Precision Optics Manufacturers Association, ran 16–19 October.
A high-traffic three-day exhibition with 188 companies featured numerous demonstrations of equipment — including some very large systems — with capabilities in freeform optics, additive manufacturing, and other technologies for advanced manufacturing.
Conference and exhibition attendance numbers were up from the last event, as were registrations for the 10 courses offered.
Interest was particularly high in sessions on molded optics and controlling surface-roughness errors. Plenary talks covered freeform optics (Christian Schindler, Carl Zeiss Jena GmbH) and high-volume complex optical systems (Heinrich Grüger, Fraunhofer-Institut für Photonische Mikrosysteme).
“The vitality of the meeting reflects a strong sense of optimism right now around optical manufacturing,” said SPIE CEO Eugene Arthurs. He pointed out that Rochester, a long-standing center of optics, photonics, and imaging technology development and manufacturing, has been “the cradle of optics” in the U.S.
Both first-time and returning exhibitors said they were pleased with the traffic and leads: just the “right customers” for many companies involved in optical fabrication.
“A lot of our customers are here, and we see more engineers than CEOs and CFOs,” said Colleen McDermott of ComTec Solutions. “We were delighted that we had double the leads on Wednesday compared to Tuesday.”
Birger Krogh, general manager of NGL Nordic A/S, commented on quality of interactions: “We have deeper technical discussions here compared to other shows.”
As Robert Smythe, president of Apre Instruments, noted, “Optifab is the only exhibition in North America that brings in our exact customers. Everyone who is here is doing serious business.”
Exhibitors such as John Nesbitt and Mike Hobby of RedLux took advantage of the conference-exhibition connection, making a technical presentation early in the week that helped push traffic to their booth.
Collaborative participation from academia was another positive factor for exhibitors such as Chris Malocsay, director of sales and marketing at UC Components: “I especially like that the students who come to Optifab are in the industry, training at the local schools.”
Several industry-focused presentations underscored the health of the optical manufacturing industry.
Sujatha Ramanujan, managing director of high-tech accelerator Luminate, described progress toward identifying 10 teams — out of more than 100 applicants — who will each receive an initial investment of $100,000 when they begin the accelerator program in January. Following the six-month commercialization acceleration program, the 10 teams will compete for more than $2 million in follow-on funding. The field is being narrowed to 20 semi-finalists who will pitch their startups on 8 November.
Alexis Vogt, endowed chair and associate professor at Monroe Community College, gave an update on programs for training the next generation of technicians. With the optics, photonics, and imaging industry growing faster than the overall economy, and a significant percentage of current technicians approaching retirement, the need is great, she said.
Other industry presentations included a panel discussion moderated by Allen Krisiloff, executive director of the Optics and Electro-Optics Standards Council, on the impact of standards on optics science, technology, and business; and a talk by Jennifer Douris O’Bryan, SPIE government affairs director, on how U.S. regulatory changes are affecting business.
APOMA Best Student Poster Awards were awarded to:
SPIE Vice President Jim Oschmann (Ball Aerospace) presented the 2016 Rudolf Kingslake Medal and Prize to James Biegen and Peter de Groot (Zygo Corp.) for their paper in Optical Engineering on novel designs for interference microscopy objectives.
SPIE Optifab will return to Rochester in 2019, running 14–19 October in the Rochester Riverside Convention Center.
SPIE is the international society for optics and photonics, an educational not-for-profit organization founded in 1955 to advance light-based science, engineering, and technology. The Society serves nearly 264,000 constituents from approximately 166 countries, offering conferences and their published proceedings, continuing education, books, journals, and the SPIE Digital Library. In 2016, SPIE provided more than $4 million in support of education and outreach programs. http://www.spie.org

Commercial UAV Expo came to a close last Friday in Las Vegas, having attracted 2,000 professionals from 53 countries, every U.S. state, and representing a wide range of industries.
PORTLAND, Maine (PRWEB) October 31, 2017
The third edition of Commercial UAV Expo came to a close last Friday in Las Vegas, having attracted 2,000 professionals from 53 countries and every U.S. state, representing a wide range of industries including process, power utilities; civil infrastructure; construction; mining and aggregates, surveying and mapping; precision agriculture; law enforcement, emergency response and search and rescue.
“Commercial UAV Expo succeeded in bringing out the top tier of the market for commercial drones,” said Lisa Murry, Event Director. “This event is for the professional audience, which was abundantly clear by the level of attendee, the serious UAS solutions on the exhibit floor, the conference content, and the professional discourse among participants.”
The event featured four keynotes, three plenaries, dozens of industry-specific presentations, offsite flying demonstrations, numerous networking events and more than 150 exhibitors packing 180 booths with best-in-class solutions for commercial end user/asset owners in top vertical markets. The event ran from October 24-26 at The Westgate. The next edition will be held October 1-3, 2018, also at the Westgate, and incorporate Drone World Expo, whose acquisition by Diversified Communications, producer of Commercial UAV Expo, was announced in the opening session of the event.
Keynoters were presented by Mike Winn of Drone Deploy, Hunter Cole of Brasfield & Gorrie, Grant Hagen of the Beck Group, Mike Blades of Frost & Sullivan, Colin Snow of Skylogic Research, Anil Nanduri of Intel and Panos Artemiadis of Arizona State University. Plenary panels covered BVLOS and an update on Pathfinder, UTM, and Regulatory & Government. Breakout sessions were vertical industry specific.
Jeremiah Karpowicz, Executive Editor of Commercial UAV News, presenter of Commercial UAV Expo, commented on the prominent themes in the conference program. “Organizations are interested in actionable information, not raw data. That’s a theme we’ve been hearing for a while now, but it really came into focus at this year’s event. Presenters on each vertical industry track were focused on how they’re able to integrate and effectively process data gathered by a drone in relation to the workflows they’ve already established. They showcased how this data can make sense for professionals of all types today, and also what that will mean when developments like AI and machine learning really take off. Those are concepts that lots of people are talking about, which is why it was great to get a better understanding of the processes and procedures that will enable these capabilities.”
Commercial UAV Expo’s Advisory Board, comprised of 16 industry leaders, played a critical role in the development of the program and at the event as presenters, panel moderators and more. “We’re so grateful to the members of the Advisory Board for their advice, support, time and energy,” said Ms. Murray.
Lewis Graham, President and CTO of GeoCue Group and a member of the Advisory Board, remarked on the high caliber of attendees visiting his booth on the exhibit floor. “As a provider of professional mapping software, our target market is the professional audience. We found them in droves at Commercial UAV Expo. Normally we have two people working our booth but this year we had three and could barely handle all the traffic. We couldn’t even stop for lunch. This is a much more professional audience than we’ve found at other events—typically we spend half our time filtering out non-professionals. We didn’t have to do that here.”
Kaci Lemler, Field of View’s COO, echoed the sentiment. “We found a high concentration of qualified buyers at Commercial UAV Expo. We saw people we needed to see – people using drones and familiar enough with the technology to know that when they saw our product that they felt the pain of not having it. That can only happen with a highly technical crowd.”
Numerous pre-conference workshops and trainings took place at the event, providing additional educational opportunities for attendees and further establishing Commercial UAV Expo as the leading venue for professional UAS education. Among them was the first-ever UAS technical symposium and UAS Mapping Certification by ASPRS, the American Society of Photogrammetry & Remote Sensing. Following a full day symposium giving the attendee a comprehensive understanding of UAS mapping in accordance with current geospatial accuracy standards, participants could choose to sit for a certification exam. “We are honored that APSRS chose to host its first-ever UAS technical symposium exclusively at Commercial UAV Expo and we congratulate the first crop of ASPRS UAS mapping certification holders,” said Lisa Murray, Director of Commercial UAV Expo. Other workshops and trainings at the event included Flyability’s indoor drone inspection training; a technical seminar by AirGon on high-accuracy mapping with DJI; Pix4D’s user training; and a workshop presented by MicaSense on the use of drone imagery in agriculture.
Additionally, drone demonstrations for first responders took place October 25th at the Henderson Unmanned Vehicle Range (HUVR). The HUVR is managed by the Nevada Institute of Autonomous Systems (NIAS) and the FAA-designated Nevada UAS Test Site. Local and national public safety experts including Las Vegas Fire & Rescue, Metropolitan Las Vegas Police, Nevada Highway Patrol, Nevada State College, Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Sundance Media Group demonstrated drone use for a variety of real-world scenarios. The training was sponsored by Aeryon Labs and Yuneec, whose drones and systems were used in the demonstrations. Live-stream monitoring walked more than 250 attendees through simulated procedures and best practices using UAS in scenarios including mapping an accident scene incorporating search and rescue of a passenger and vehicle pursuit with high-risk traffic stop including suspect pursuit.
Ms. Murray announced the acquisition of Drone World Expo in her welcome remarks. “Since 2015, the market has exploded with drone events, making for a congested and complicated landscape for customers to choose from,” said Ms. Murray. “The acquisition of JD Event’s Drone World Expo by Diversified Communications takes two leading commercial UAS events and unites them to form the largest commercial drone event in the market. By coming together, we’ll be able to deliver more qualified buyers to vendors than if had we continued separately, making it easier for vendors and buyers to meet in one place annually for all of their drone business. And, with our European event and digital platform, we are making it easier for drone companies to reach markets domestic and international with a frequency and reach no one else in the market can offer.”
The news was very well received by exhibitors and attendees alike. "We were thrilled to learn about the recent acquisition of Drone World Expo as it solidifies Commercial UAV Expo’s position as the preeminent UAS event," said Aaron L. Greenwald, President of Unmanned Safety Institute. Gretchen West, Senior Advisor at Hogan Lovells and Co-Executive Director of the Commercial Drone Alliance, has acted as Drone World Expo’s Advisory Board Chair and will continue to play a vital role going forward. The Commercial Drone Alliance likewise will be supporting the event. “On behalf of the Commercial Drone Alliance, and along with my fellow co-executive director, Lisa Ellman, we are thrilled to support this merged event and will continue our focus of bringing the most relevant, timely and critical content to the Commercial UAV Expo with the most prominent decision-makers in our industry. The decision to consolidate events to become the largest and most influential commercial drone event is an important step and allows the community to focus resources on this all-inclusive conference and tradeshow to achieve greater value. We look forward to building off the huge success of the Drone World Expo through our partnership with the Commercial UAV Expo, bringing the same caliber of expert speakers, and creating the most comprehensive drone event to date,” said West.
The 2018 event will take place October 1-3 at the Westgate Resort & Casino in Las Vegas and will be organized by Diversified Communications under the leadership of Ms. Murray, whose other products in the product family are Commercial UAV Expo Europe and Commercial UAV News. Other products in the company’s technology portfolio include International LiDAR Mapping Forum, SPAR 3D Expo & Conference, SPAR 3D.com, AECNext Technology Expo & Conference and AEC Next News.

KKU’s schedule of seminars and networking breaks was designed to offer attendees the chance to learn from technology experts as well as from fellow C-level leaders and managing partners. Guests left with invaluable insights for the year ahead.
KKU instructors brought a unique trove of knowledge to their courses. Speakers like Joe Hoegler, a world-leading expert in Microsoft Exchange, shared successful strategies gleaned through both wide-ranging experience and analysis. Theory and practice converge at Kraft Kennedy, a tech think tank known for leading the industry conversation with high-quality educational and networking events, webinars, and white papers. Thriving law firms, nonprofits, and financial organizations have long looked to Kraft Kennedy for guidance, not only on implementation but also on long-term strategy.

Designed to mount under your sink, Water Shield can be installed within minutes and uses testing cartridges to measure levels of lead, arsenic, cadmium, copper, mercury, and more
TORONTO (PRWEB) November 01, 2017
With technology five years in the making, Serene Sensors Inc (“Serene Sensors”) developed Water Shield to provide consumers with the transparency and education needed to protect themselves from harmful contaminants. Serene Sensors is a cleantech startup seeking to commercialize pioneering technology in the home water quality market. The company launched Water Shield today on Kickstarter with a CA$ 40,000 funding goal.
Water Shield is a consumer-grade tap water analyzer. The product mounts under the sink and is fully operated by a mobile app while providing detailed readings on tap water chemistry. The device can report on 7 parameters: Lead (Pb), Cadmium (Cd), Arsenic (As), Copper (Cu), Mercury (Hg), Total dissolved solids (TDS), and Acidity (pH). Additionally, the water analyzer can be used with or without filtration systems. When used with filtration systems, Water Shield can accurately determine when to change a water filter or assess when it is no longer functioning optimally.
The device reports on tap water chemistry in a routine, automated way. Water Shield takes the guesswork out of knowing if water is safe and healthy for consumption. The device also determines how one’s water compares to others in a neighborhood, city or state, lets the consumer know the right time to change their water filter, and also helps diagnose problems with on-premise and municipal plumbing.
Water Shield can conduct regular, automated testing at home. The product provides the user peace of mind in knowing that their tap water chemistry is within the acceptable Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and World Health Organization (WHO) guideline limits for safe consumption. If it is not, Water Shield will provide both long-term and short-term recommendations on how to fix an issue.
Wi-Fi enabled and cloud connected, Water Shield is a smart device that will change the way water quality is managed by municipalities. Very little data exists about the consistency of water quality delivered to our homes, hospitals and schools. The Water Shield will enable the collection of data from end points throughout the city to create a dynamic database for citizens and local governments to work together in protecting our infrastructure.
“We want to bring complete transparency to household water and create a smart water quality database for infrastructure management," said Hamed Jafari, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer. "Water Shield represents a paradigm shift in the household tap water monitoring market. The hardware is built around innovative technology developed by Serene Sensors and rigorously tested to meet health standards. With full-automation via a mobile app and accurate, efficient results, for the first time it gives consumers an affordable monitoring tool to protect themselves from water contaminants."
Recently, there has been a lot of uncertainty surrounding the quality, taste, and safety of tap water in light of crises such as Flint, Michigan. Water Shield will help consumers manage their filtration devices more efficiently, serve as a detection system for water contamination, and after data is collected from various regions, help in the creation of a smart city management tool for water infrastructure. The Water Shield is currently available on Kickstarter starting at CA$ 75. To learn more, visit bit.ly/WaterSheildKS.

Radiant Vision Systems announces the release of the INSPECT.assembly system, a new turnkey automated visual inspection station for in-line assembly verification.
REDMOND, Wash. (PRWEB) November 01, 2017
Radiant Vision Systems, a leading provider of high-resolution imaging solutions for automated visual analysis of devices and surfaces, announces the release of the INSPECT.assembly system, a new turnkey automated visual inspection station for in-line assembly verification. The INSPECT.assembly is fully-integrated with Radiant technology and configured to precise tolerances to meet production-level inspection needs of complex electronic assemblies. The INSPECT.assembly system detects the presence, position, and integrity of components including screws, cables, connectors, and other critical features before final device enclosure to automate assembly inspection.
“Electronics manufacturing processes today are largely automated. However, final inspection for board-based connected assemblies has lacked an effective automated solution that ensures both consistency and accuracy,” says Davis Bowling, Radiant’s Regional Account Manager for assembly verification applications. “At the final stages of production where internal components are verified – before electronics are enclosed before or after functional testing – human inspectors remain the primary inspection method. This is due to the human’s superior visual acuity and judgment over typical machine vision systems for complex visual analysis. Humans can quickly detect very subtle defects in a variety of assembly contexts, even as parts change. However, human inspection lacks an automated system’s repeatability. To apply an automated solution in these contexts, the technology must offer the same level of visual acuity and judgment to ensure failures do not escape or result after goods are shipped.”
Radiant’s new INSPECT.assembly system is a turnkey inspection station that employs ProMetric® Y imaging systems with camera resolution (up to 29 megapixels) and dynamic range (above 70 dB) far exceeding the specifications of typical machine vision systems. Applied in photometric measurement of light and color in displays and backlit components, ProMetric cameras capture fine-detail images with a level of precision that rivals human visual acuity. Because INSPECT.assembly is fully-integrated with Radiant camera, lighting, fixturing, and software, Radiant engineers are able to design each INSPECT.assembly to match the specifications of each customer application. This advanced vision technology solves critical inspection challenges through a combination of the image registration & analysis functions of the camera with proprietary machine vision “super tools” in INSPECT Software, which blend multiple machine vision software algorithms in a single tool to enable comprehensive analysis of specific features. For instance, a tool can be engineered with the unique algorithms required to locate the routing path of a cable to ensure that it is properly seated around guides on a board-based assembly.
“Capturing precise feature flaws during final inspections is critical not only for preventing functional failures in the manufacturing process, but also latent failures that may occur after shipment,” states Bowling. “A cable that is routed away from its guide may be pinched or damaged with repeated device use. A loose connector may detach with vibration. These issues may cause a device to fail after it has left the manufacturing facility, resulting in a return or potentially a broader product recall. The INSPECT.assembly’s imaging capability combined with custom-configured software allow manufacturers to catch subtle errors like these that human inspectors, standard machine vision systems, and functional testing may miss.”
Radiant’s new INSPECT.assembly system rivals human visual acuity and judgment for detecting defects while quantifying visual data for automated operations, bridging the gap between human and machine vision inspection for the most challenging assemblies. Occupying the same physical footprint as a human operator on the line, the INSPECT.assembly system easily rolls onto moving conveyers, adjusting to heights from 525-950 mm. The system features a touch screen for results monitoring, adjustment of inspection tolerances, and part changes. The system’s INSPECT Software is pre-configured with multiple inspection tool recipes specific to each part, enabling adaptability to line changeover. The system also offers reporting functionality, barcode reading, and data output for traceability of inspection results and process control to improve operations for reducing product returns and recalls.
