Designing the Electronics for Augmented Reality (AR) Glasses

CLIENT CHALLENGE
  • The client, Rokid, a Chinese company, reached out to Voler to design the electronics for their augmented reality glasses, as resources in China did not have the skill to create a complex product ready for volume production.
VOLER SOLUTION

An AR glass with a custom designed electronics board that was:

  • Power efficient
  • Extremely compact
  • Lightweight
  • Fully featured with all the capabilities of a smart phone except for the cellular modem
  • Extremely sensitive touch capability for micro-detailed handling of tasks

Established in 2014 as a Hangzhou company, Rokid specializes in the research and product development of Mixed Reality and Artificial Intelligence. With its mission of “leave nobody behind”, Rokid provides the extreme user experience, superior products, and robust enterprise solutions for development communities.

Voler worked with Rokid to create the entire electronics design. We integrated multiple sensor technologies — HD Camera, Time-of-flight camera (3D), audio (play and record), and included WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. There is an HD video display projected on the lens in front of your eye. Given the multiple use cases planned — from mission critical tasks to hands-free operations, the battery life was critical and we were able to deliver a custom board that just sipped power.

IoT Security:What We All Need to Know

By Jesse Lindquist

The Internet of Things, or IoT, has started to truly come into its own in the last few years. From smart thermostats to connected cars, there’s a place for IoT in nearly every area of our lives. There are now so many connected devices that it’s hard to imagine life without them.

While IoT has made our lives better and easier in a lot of ways, it’s also not been without its challenges. IoT cybersecurity experts are racing to catch up with all of the security problems that have been caused by connected devices with major vulnerabilities.

Overseas Market Calls for Second-Generation Forehead Thermometer Solution

By Joshua Chen, EE Times

The theory that summer’s high temperatures can dissolve the Covid-19 epidemic has been smashed by real data. As of June, the number of patients diagnosed with Covid-19 in the United States, Brazil, Russia, India, and other countries is on the rise, while the “herd immunity” strategy in Sweden and the United Kingdom has also been proven to be ineffective. However, China’s national defense control measures have been proven to be effective. Therefore, a second wave of epidemic prevention and control is about to start overseas, which will lead to a wave of demand for second-generation forehead thermometer guns in overseas markets.
