The Internet of Things will change the way humans interact with all physical “Things” and/or “Everything” around them and in most cases will not even be aware of the technology as it is becoming more and more pervasive. This been said there will still be many proprietary silo technologies and services to deal with while the aim is to create unity or groupings that simplify all the various “Things” that humans need to interact with.
The inventor Terry Ashwin, calls this stage after the chaos of the Internet of Things, the “Unity of Things™” (“UoT”) and focuses a large part of his current work on the development of a simple non-intrusive ways for humans to interact with everything around them. The Unity of Things™ will bring back simplicity and balance the two components that will be desperately needed. Terry just finished one of the foundational components of the Unity of Things™ called U+Link™, the end result of 30 years of work.
U+Link™ is a brand new fifth generation foundational RF Technology, an enabler allowing solution architects to easily build products to a myriad of challenges in virtually every industry you can think of in no time. It consists of all the modules required to build hundreds of diverse applications. Each of these applications potentially a business in own right. The magic of U+Link™ is the golden thread that link things, assets and humans in a homogeneous way. It is not often any more in today’s world that inventors design something unique using standard components available to every other designer but by keeping it very simple he achieved the best power usage / range / update frequency / data size / cost ratio ever achieved in this type of technology. Allowing for mass roll-out and linking devices to the Internet that would not have been economically viable before.
The Unity of Things™ allow multiple devices to connect together in groups or units, using the highly secure foundational U+Link™ technology. Instead of interacting or dealing with individual devices, assets or things the owner manages the unit. These units develop their own internal intelligence and become interdependent. The owner has a similar identity and units or groups respond to the owner in a learnt way. The units keep track of devices in the unit / group and alert the owner on predefined or out of the norm events.
The UoT will create a society where people will not have to spend time and energy on protecting and managing “things”, assets and devices. Policing of physical assets will become largely obsolete as these assets will be totally monitored, managed and even rendered non-functional outside of its group / unit. The Unity of Things™ in essence unites everything in a person’s world into logical group or unit. These units / groups can include assets, devices, services, data and even currency.
This is no longer a dream but already a reality. Previous generation technology has been in the market for the last fifteen years with installations around the globe while U+Link™ is already catching up.Read more →
As the responsible and safe use of firearms are becoming a higher and higher priority globally, the firearm industry, require their assets and use thereof to be tracked and monitored. This includes ensuring that firearms have not been misappropriated or misused. By using wireless sensing technology, firearms are trackable in real-time in order to immediately detect misappropriation of the firearms and to allow the owner to take steps to recover the firearm.
The development of the trackable firearm was done jointly by Terry Ashwin (through Eureka Technology) and HB (Harrington Beecham) who developed the pistol frame taking into account the exact specification required to place a sensor in the firearm. This generic retro fit pistol frame with a cartridge to locate a sensor that enables pistol monitoring, tracking and recording of usage, also makes it possible to replace the current frame of a damaged or aged pistol and the frames of pistols where tracking is required or where the current polymer or metal frame of the pistol manufacturer does not make provision for the installation of a sensor.
The mere fact that monitoring and identification is introduced will reduce firearm related crime.Read more →
What if you could walk away from your PC and it automatically locks the computer and disables the keyboard? And when you return the PC unlocks- at exactly the same page as when you left. Your proximity to the PC activates or deactivates the Disc Ice security system. No passwords, no fingerprints, no smart cards. Can privacy be easier than Disc Ice?
Disc Ice Green is an automatic computer RFID (radio frequency identification) lock which consists of only two pieces of hardware:
The Disc Ice “lock” is inserted in a USB port on your PC. The Disc Ice “key” is carried by you. The two components, “lock” and “key”, are matching and unique. The PC cannot be accessed without the correct corresponding “lock” and “key”. The data on the computer is protected even if the machine is stolen because the hard drive cannot be accessed without the Disc Ice “key”
Disc Ice Green Features:
Disc Ice™ Blue will lock and unlock your computer just as Disc Ice Green. But Disc Ice Blue adds an additional layer of protection.
Disc Ice Blue can be configured so that the protected PC must always or intermittently “see” a 2nd transmitter key. You place the 2nd transmitter key in a location up to 15 meters (16.40 yards) from the computer. If your computer fails to “see” the transmitter at your pre-set intervals it will automatically lock- even if transmitter key #1 is present.
Disc Ice Blue Features:
The Dialogue Data logging system is a passive digital logbook, which automatically records all aspects of any movable asset with regard to their location, distance, speeds and stop/start against date and time, Coupled with the ID information of the operator and the specific vehicle, the Dialogue Data, logging system provides a complete record for effective management control. The Dialogue Data logging system operates automatically without any human intervention by using the latest, state-of-the-art’ digital satellite technology that is accurate to within one meter, anywhere on earth. The detailed information recorded by the Dialogue Data logging system is then set against detailed built-in maps, or customised user-specific maps and can provide the user with programmable filters that provide automatic reports concerning any deviations from management norms such as areas, routes, speeds, stops, times and dates, etc. This system was developed by Terry Ashwin in 2002.Read more →
