Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), Taiwan's largest and leading high-tech applied research institutions, won two CES 2020 Innovation Awards, including its PECOLA (Personal Companion for Older People Living Alone) in the Smart Home category and iStimUweaR in Wearable Technologies.
ITRI President Edwin Liu pointed out that ITRI’s PECOLA robot is able to identify and analyze living conditions for seniors, and employs a video-based fall detection technology, which will send notification for assistance when a person takes a tumble.
Another winning technology iStimUweaR is a hybrid smart wearable system used for clothing that provides transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) to enhance the wearer’s blood circulation and relieve muscle pain. iStimUweaR garments are comfortable to wear and washable. “Both honorees leverage ICT technologies to create value-added systems/services that address the user needs. They are great examples of hardware-software integration and multi-disciplinary innovation,” Dr. Liu stressed.
ITRI will showcase nine tech innovations at CES 2020 in Las Vegas from January 7 to 10, 2020. The exhibition is aim to offer a great interactive experience for a variety of scenarios, demonstrating ITRI’s outstanding capability in developing intelligent systems and innovative applications.
