Radiation is a very serious and hazardous environment that should be accurately monitored in such institutes as nuclear power stations, plants and scientific laboratories, among others.
For the purpose of radiation level control and absorbed dose measurement, these institutes utilize personal electronic hand-held dosimeters. Such information is vitally important for health reasons and it’s crucial to gather this information with the help of reliable and accurate devices. Once manufactured, personal dosimeters have factory-default set of parameters and each device requires to be calibrated against a predefined level of radiation by calibration machine before shipment to the customers.

Automation is the latest trending technology in many fields especially in industries like manufacturing, control systems, mining, etc. The industrial automation system developers are constantly searching for methods of improving the availability and maximizing the efficiency of those systems without compromising their quality and safety of operations. One of the areas where improvements can have significant impacts in this pursuit is HMIs, or user interfaces, used to control and operate industrial systems. Continue Reading
When we talk about the devices that make up the Internet of Things (IoT), what comes to your mind? Smartphones, wearables, light bulbs, refrigerators, thermostats, smoke sensors, infotainment systems – the list can be endless. These connected devices became an integral part of our daily lives and their number will continue to increase year after year, according to the experts’ forecasts.
As human interactions with connected devices become stronger, GUI developers face challenges each day when designing for IoT. Continue Reading
Medical devices have to be designed so that people can use them easily and reliably in order to simplify the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Development of convenient graphical user interface (GUI) for medical devices is especially important, as low usability of UI may have dramatic consequences.
Numerous studies have confirmed that poorly designed medical device interfaces has a significant impact on the growth of the use errors and may represent a hazard to human health and life. Continue Reading
