Using Big Data and AI to Detect Seismic Activity in Advance

- www.eeweb.com

P-Waver, a startup based in Taiwan, announced at CES 2021 a new system of analysis data to design an earthquake early-warning (EEW) model for the government to give advanced warning in the island of Formosa (Taiwan). The company is a spinoff from the National Center for Research on Earthquake Engineering, a non-profit organization under the supervision of National Applied Research Laboratories. Its services cover structural-safety–monitoring systems and earthquake-disaster–prevention consultants as well as smart-security solutions for people in buildings or at home through IoT devices or control systems. A spokesperson for P-Waver said that its vision is to reinforce the security of the population and entire business. EEW technology has a strong impact on people’s lives and the financial losses that earthquakes can cause.

TFT LCDs Enabling a Display-Based World

- www.eeweb.com

The thin-film–transistor liquid-crystal–display (TFT LCD) story started with American inventors at Radio Corporation of America (RCA), which developed but failed to commercialize this new technology. Then Japanese brands such as Sharp, Panasonic, and Toshiba entered the market and were able to leverage the technology for large-scale commercial manufacturing. This opened the floodgates of the display industry, as demand grew exponentially and prices were decreasing as Korean and Taiwanese manufacturers entered the market with cheaper and high-quality displays from now-household brands such as Samsung and LG. These days, Chinese manufacturers are the biggest players in TFT LCD manufacturing, and this dominance will only continue to grow, as Samsung and LG declared in early 2020 that they will stop TFT manufacturing in favor of new technologies.
