Murata announced that it is a Gold Sponsor of the forthcoming Nordic IoT Hackathon 2016 event taking place in Lund, Sweden, April 22-24.

The Nordic IoT Hackathon is a one-of-a-kind event in Northern Europe and gathers the best developers from around the globe, working on the design of intelligent buildings and healthcare infrastructure. Participation is truly international, featuring 10 teams from countries including Russia, USA, Canada, Israel, Germany, and Sweden.

Hiroshi Dan, Product Manager, Sensors, Murata stated, “The Nordic IoT Hackathon is a key event for Murata. Supporting the creation and development of IoT applications is a significant focus for us and we look forward to working together with young engineers at the event to help them achieve their designs.“

The event runs for 50 hours, during which 10 teams comprised of startup companies and engineers create IoT designs in either the Intelligent Buildings or Intelligent Healthcare Establishments category. Entries for the Intelligent Buildings category cover the use of IoT in all types of structures from schools and factories to shopping malls and government buildings. The Intelligent Healthcare category covers IoT innovation ideas in hospitals, elderly care establishments, and home care provision in addition to designs that encourage and assist in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Murata will provide a ballistocardiograph (BCG) sensor node – SCA11H – that can sense heart and respiration rate without connecting any pads or wires to the person being monitored. It can also be used to sense bed occupancy and sleep state. The sensor is available as a complete unit that incorporates a microcontroller and Wi-Fi transceiver.

Maximising Performance and Reliability of Automotive Electronics With Conformal Coatings

While the value of the electronic systems in a modern vehicle typically exceeds 20% of the total vehicle cost, many estimate that this value will exceed 35% within the next five years. With the increased adoption of electronic vehicles and the development of the internet of things (IoT)—which has brought us driverless cars like those being tested by Google in California and BMW on the roads of Bavaria—the future of this industry is starkly different from that of the 1970s when electronic fuel injection systems were first introduced to mainstream production.

Is Your EMS Partner Up to Speed With WEEE 'Open Scope?'

E-waste encompasses a myriad of "unseen" metals, semi-metals, and chemical compounds that are found inside circuit boards, wires, and electrical connections. If not handled correctly, chemicals—such as cadmium, barium, lithium, lead, mercury, and beryllium—can present a significant health risk through direct contact, the inhalation of toxic fumes, or the build-up of toxins in water, soil, and food products.
