Innovations utilizing Haptic technology

haptics technology, haptic technology examples, haptic technology ppt, “Haptics”- The ability to see, hear, or become aware of something that result from any form of interaction involving touch or the sense of touch. With the aim to recreate the sense of touch via a haptic device, haptic technology has opened up a myriad of possibilities from vibrating cell phones that alert you to an incoming message or call, to smart watches, wristbands, virtual reality training simulators, implantable devices that produce feedback and even in robotic surgeries.

Haptic devices incorporate microcontrollers, drivers, actuators or motors, as well as software for multimodal experiences that improve the usability by engaging touch, sound and sight. Haptics is widely becoming a tool used in a variety of applications they can be found in virtual reality applications to give a greater sense of realism or create a 3D environment. The haptic technology has been found in smartphones and computer and video games for many years but the innovations utilizing haptic technology is now integrating haptic technology into healthcare, transportation, robotics etc.

Title: METHOD AND DEVICE TO CONTROL VEHICLE BEHAVIOUR

Assignee: Barelli, Giuseppe (Via Baldanzese 127/b, 50041 Calenzano (FI), IT)

Publication Date: 13 Dec 2017

Abstract:

This abstract is provided to introduce a selection of concepts in a simplified form that are further described below in the Detailed System Description section. The abstract is not intended to identify key features of the claimed subject matter. Disclosed in this paper is a vehicle performance control device conceived to autonomously determine a safe, economic and eco-sustainable driving behaviour to reduce the mechanical stress, the wear and the maintenance cost of vehicles. The invention provides a vehicle performance control device arranged between the vehicle’s Pedal Interface (PI) including the cruise control, the speed limitation and the speed control systems, or a combination of these, and the vehicle’s Electronic Control Unit (ECU). The control device autonomously and dynamically acts on the functional status of the cruise control, the speed limitation or the speed control system to modulate the vehicle’s performance. The performance is tuned depending on the current vehicle’s position, speed, acceleration, inclination and pose respect to the ground. For example, the vehicle’s max speed can be limited in specific geographic areas or during specific time intervals when the driver is supposed to drive improperly, excessively were off the vehicle, or parts of it, or stress the mechanics. The performance limitation can be turned off manually by the drivers for safety reasons, remotely by fleet’s managers or fleet’s management systems , or automatically by the system whenever the context requires the entire engine power to get the vehicle working properly. For example the engine performance will be not limited if the vehicle gets in an uphill over a certain inclination threshold to avoid stops due to torque outages. The control device embeds a communication unit able to connect to the internet, exchange data with personal computers, diagnostic tools or personal devices such as smartphones and tablets. The control device provides all the useful information for the estimation of the vehicle’s status, the driver’s behaviours and the induced mechanical stress and wear off. The communication unit is intended to exchange data for the monitoring of the vehicle’s status, its performance and for the tuning of the control unit’s strategy. The communication can be automatically scheduled by the system itself, attempted by the remote fleet’s managers or the fleet’s management systems, or performed by humans operators or the connected remote devices on requests. A human machine interface provides visual, acoustic or haptic feedbacks, or a combination of these, to the driver on the status of the control device, the estimated level of wear or mechanical stress induced on the vehicle or part of the vehicle, the drive safety, efficiency and the eco-sustainability.

From the “Idea phase” into the “Invention phase”

From the “Idea phase” into the “Invention phase”

Inspiration can be found anywhere if you look around and be open to it. Ideas are relatively easy to come. “Sit-at-tea-discussions”, which are now given a fancy term “brainstorming sessions” generate wonderful ideas. It takes a lot of knowledge, time, money and efforts to refine an idea into an invention.

2

But How do you begin with the idea process? First of all discover a problem. Take out a sheet of paper and write down whatever comes to your mind related to the problem; it doesn’t necessarily make sense and try to come up with a solution to the problem you just discovered. Only after you organize your initial idea, the actual design and development of your product will begin.

Turning an idea into  an invention — it takes lot of efforts and luck to launch a product into, and get that product accepted by, the marketplace. There are substantial barriers in the path of those who pursue innovation. Overcoming those barriers and accomplishing the tasks require careful planning and input from others.

You can’t just take an idea, plunk it down and say “OK, this is it.” You will be defining and tweaking your idea constantly even during development and prototyping.

Entrepreneurship can be a tough and long journey, and the success of your idea may be doubted by many people, even your family and friends! But remain focused on the value that your invention will deliver to your customers. You should be able to clearly explain the basic idea or concept behind your new product or service (in and out of the industry), have a prototype for demonstration of your new product or service, and you may seek professional advice to protect your intellectual property.

How will you determine if your idea will succeed?

One of the best ways to determine the success of your idea is to talk to people around, get customer feedback, before the complete development of the product/service and finalise your target market, pricing model and marketing strategy. Inorder to validate the entry of your product/service into the market carry out complete industrial trials for your product/service.

When you finally set out to launch your business, one of the most important trait you need as an entrepreneur is “Perseverance”. You’ll be told “no” many times but you’ve to move beyond the “no” and eventually, you’re going to get to a “yes.”

Understand that doing business isn’t a rocket science. No, it is definitely not easy to begin a business, but it’s not as complicated or as scary as many people think, either. It’s a step-by-step, common-sense procedure. So take one step at a time!!

 

8 things about Sarahah app you must know before downloading
band lawyer india, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY STRATEGY, MARKET ENTRY strategy, Startup Attorney India, Startup India Strategist, Startup Lawyer India, venture capital financing

“Sarahah(.com)”- Take home lesson for Entrepreneurs

Take home lesson for Entrepreneurs- Sarahah(.com)

“Sarahah” has been Viral. The app has been a trend in few days. You would have surely come across this app named Sarahah.com in some way or the other unless you are living in a nutshell!!!

“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life — think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.” –  Swami Vivekananda

Sarahah was created to take positive feedback anonymously. The sharing of ‘feedbacks’ on social media & the user engagement clearly shows the Virality of this app. In a way it brought out multiple sides of human sentiments.

From “constructive feedback” to “being a victim of cyber bullying” you would have seen it all in past couple of hours.“It’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen.” Sarahah has been able to engage users universally, but there are certain take home lessons for startups that they should take care of while building a product or service. Building a startup is a very tough and long term process. You have to think for long term Sustainability and Scalability.

“Entrepreneurship is neither a science nor an art. It is a practice.” – Peter Drucker.

What we can learn from success of Sarahah.com “Do’s”

1) WOW Marketing (Word-OF-Mouth)The purpose of a business is to create a customer who creates “customers”.”WOW Marketing” is when a consumer’s interest for a company’s product or service is reflected in their daily dialogues. Best of the companies in the world have used this strategy and this is the best marketing strategy a product can get. So you need to create “a product so good that after using it, people would share it in their social circles.

If you see it in the case of Sarahah- The trend was set by some early users who wanted to take feedback about themselves by sharing good or interesting feedbacks on Facebook. This encouraged other users to try this app!!! 

2. User-friendliness of the product/service

One thing that should always be considered is the userfriendliness of the product. The product should be so simple and instinctive that it can be used with an equal proficiency by a child or an adult wheather or not the individual is a “Tech-Savvy”

It’s easy to make things look hard but hard to make things look easy.

Most of the startups want to build a product with multiple features to enable more users to use it. But a product loaded with multiple features would confuse the user.

Sarahah is extremely simple to use. A feedback seeker has to simply create an account and share the URL – that’s it. A feedback giver has to merely write the feedback in plain simple text.

3. Emotions make us human

“The greatest fear in the world is of the opinions of others. And the moment you are unafraid of the crowd you are no longer a sheep, you become a lion. A great roar arises in your heart, the roar of freedom.” ― Osho

Sarahah became viral because people want to take & hear positive feedback / positive things / good things about themselves as it would make them feel “valuable”. A user should be able to connect with the product/service at an emotional level. In that case he/she will surely use it – atleast for once.

What NOT TO DO while building a Startup.

1). Build Real Value for the Customer 

While building a startup take care that you are solving a real problem and delivering real value to the customer.

“Don’t find customers for your products, find products for your customers”

In order to build repeatitive engagement, target a group and solve some real problem that your target group is facing. Websites like Sarahah are build to capitalize Human Emotions. They will be able to attract a lot of people to use them but for a small period of time. But as an entrepreneur, you should think whether you want mere Users or Customer?

“Be genuine. Be remarkable. Be worth connecting with”.

2. Trends Come & Go, Startups Stay 

When you are building a company think about the “long term goals”. User Retention, Active Users and Repeat Rate are very important factors for a startup. Make sure that your product/service is able to engage users for a longer period of time and there is a repeat rate, else your product might go viral, but will be useless in the long term. Just like Sarahah, 100s of things go ‘viral’ and become popular very quickly, but then they sputter out with the same speed.

“Strive not to be a success but rather to be of value”- Albert Einstein

3. Money is the Oxygen for your company

A business is nothing without its clients. Whether you provide product or services, you won’t survive unless individuals or other businesses retain their interest and are willing to pay to use the product / service continuously.

Monetization happens when you are able to deliver real value to the customers because the customers will never hesitate in paying for the value he/she is receiving.

“Making money isn’t hard in itself …. What’s hard is to earn it doing something worth devoting one’s life to”- Carlos Ruiz

In the haste of building a company, early stage entrepreneurs do one common mistake! They do not think about building a rock solid revenue model. Even though apps like Sarahah go viral but they don’t have a monetization model built in them which is ok for a short period of time but it’s deadly in long term.

“The Entrepreneur always searches for change, responds to it and exploits it as an opportunity”- Peter Drucker

The effort required to launch a new venture can seem daunting. Do your research, pick everyone’s brain, find a mentor that’s experienced in entrepreneurship, review business case studies and focus on delivering real value to the customers.

Indian Trademark Infringement Case Study: Cadila Healthcare Ltd. v/s Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation Ltd

Cadila Healthcare Ltd. v/s Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation Ltd

Indian Trademark Infringement Case Study

DETERMINING THE STATE OF DISTINCTIVENESS

Is It Trademark Infringement?
What is a protected trademark?

“Best case scenario, the mark is a blend of two well known English words. Once a typical phrase in the English dialect which specifically describes the item is embraced by a business enterprise, such reception normally entails the risk that others in the field would also be qualified for use such phrases gave no endeavor is made to ride on the fleeting trend of the appellant’s indubitably market driving item ‘Sugar Free’. In this association, simply because the attributes of ‘sugar free’ can be described by different phrases can’t detract from the regular usage of the phrase ‘Sugar Free’ as signifying products which don’t contain sugar and any dealer which adopts such mark in the market, does so with the unmistakable learning of the possibility of different traders also using the said mark. That is precisely the reason for the dissent of assurance to such marks by refusing registration as envisaged by Sections 9, Section 30 and Section 35 of the Trademarks Act, 1999.”

Cadila Pharmaceuticals Ltd.

Trademark infringement is the unauthorized use of a trademark or service mark on or in connection with goods and/or services in a manner that is likely to cause confusion, deception, or mistake about the source of the goods and/or services.
What constitutes an infringement of trademark?

It is one of the biggest privately held pharmaceutical organizations in India, headquartered at Ahmadabad, in the State of Gujarat. In the course of the most recent six decades, the organization has been creating and manufacturing pharmaceutical items in India and offering and dispersing these in more than eighty-five different nations around the globe. It focuses unequivocally on Innovation and Research, the organization is available in more than forty-five helpful zones spread crosswise over twelve specialties, including cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, analgesics, haematinics, hostile to infective and anti-microbial, respiratory operators, ant diabetics, and immunological.

Recently Cadila Pharmaceuticals Ltd. filed a suit against Gujarat co-operative Milk Marketing Federation Ltd & oths.

It manages the Establishment of an immediate linkage between milk makers and customers by taking out mediators, Milk Producers (agriculturists) control acquirement, handling, and marketing and, Proficient administration.

GCMMF (Amul) has helped India to rise as the biggest milk maker on the planet. More than 15 million milk makers pour their milk in 1, 44,500 dairy helpful social orders the nation over. Their milk is prepared in 184 District Co-agent Unions and promoted by 22 State Marketing Federations, guaranteeing a superior life for millions.The case has been filed over use of the words “Sugar free”.

Cadila Pharmaceuticals Ltd. 2001 PTC 541 (SC) Full Bench Brief to market the drug under the trade mark of “FALCIGO” all over India

Cadila Healthcare Ltd. v. Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation Ltd. and Ors’ 2009 (41) PTC 336 (Del.) (DB) is a judgment of the Delhi high Court that arrangements with the issue of mediating the peculiarity of a trademark when it is at first sight, “expressive” in character.For the situation, Cadila Healthcare Ltd. propelled an item containing ‘aspartame’, a sugar substitute, under the brand name ‘Sugar-Free’ in the year 1988.

Cadila had purportedly coined and embraced the trademark ‘Sugar-Free’ and was the principal client of the said trademark in India. Gujarat Co-operative received a stamp consisting of the words ‘Sugar-Free’ for their solidified pastry, indistinguishable with and misleadingly like the Cadila’s trademark.

The Gujarat Co-operative notwithstanding, as a matter of fact, were not offering their items under the name ‘Sugar-Free’, yet utilizing the same as an expressive modifier for their item.
