Navigo Smart chair transforms workplace ergonomics and highlights diverse applications for ULE technology
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSP Group®, Inc. (NASDAQ:DSPG), a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications, announced today that its Ultra-Low Energy (ULE) System-on-Chips (SoCs) have been selected to power the new Navigo Smart connected chair by Nowy Styl Group, a leader in comprehensive furniture solutions for office and public spaces. The Navigo Smart chair is further enhanced by the RED AMBER sensor IoT platform by Gemsense, an IoT technology and product development company.
Leverages ULE technology by DSP Group, the Navigo Smart showcases the various ways in which IoT technologies can optimize smart offices, enhance employee well-being, increase productivity and decrease work-related illness. The chair incorporates sensor technology by RED AMBER – a tiny embedded computer – along with ULE sensors within the chair to make Navigo even smarter, creating better ergonomic functions and encouraging healthier sitting conditions.
“We see the smart office as a major market for IoT as many employers and organizations are struggling to implement smart technologies into work environments,” said Avi Rabinovich, CEO, Gemsense. “ULE technology is a great solution for smarter office initiatives as it offers the merits of superior range and full office coverage. ULE enables our RED AMBER sensors to send data to one remote server that covers the entire office space. We look forward to utilizing this connectivity even more in future projects.”
“Today’s forward-thinking companies are investing in their employees' health more and more,” said Piotr Wróblewski, Nowy Styl Group, co-creator of Navigo Smart. “We’ve made ergonomics education and furniture perfection our top priorities as employees too often get immersed in their everyday work activities and do not capitalize on the ergonomic benefits of their environment. With the new Navigo Smart chair, this problem will be solved as the chair will monitor the surroundings and person using the chair to facilitate healthier habits.”
“We are thrilled with the solid traction and interest in our ULE technology offering,” said Tali Chen CVP corporate development, DSP Group. “With advantages such as interference-free spectrum band, superior range and support in two-way voice, ULE technology is the optimal standard to embed in a variety of solutions ranging from smart home to industrial, smart city and now also in smart office offerings.”
Nowy Styl’s new products will be demonstrated in the DSP Group private suite at the Marriott Courtyard @CES2017.
