Voler Systems and Acorn Product Development collaborate on projects where the combined skills of the two companies are needed to produce a complete quality design.
One recent joint project was early design work on a wearable communicator for seniors. We worked with Acorn to investigate a number of technologies, including wireless, power control, audio and sensors. Together we were able to provide a turnkey solution to a large Japanese company and assisted them with developing a demo unit for a trade show.
