HOLITECH: Displays as well as camera modules are more and more used in a wide range of applications. Whether it is a coffee machine, a dish washer or an outside vending machine, people are expecting the same “look & feel” as they are experiencing with their Smart Phones. Touch displays are peoples’ interface to any kind of application. You can see a similar trend with camera modules which are introduced in smart appliances such as oven, fridge or microwave but also in security applications like door opener, room/area monitoring or even in your car for Driver Management Systems or parking control. Also, the industry is using cameras for production control to ensure a stable quality of their products. In one sentence – the world is becoming “smart” and that is what people are expecting when they buy a new product. The market is very interesting and overall expandable. Digitization is playing an increasingly important role in our daily lives. For ePaper, we see more and more electronic price tags at the grocery. We can well imagine that our E-Paper will replace the conventional labels in the future esp. in the fashion industry. Besides that, ePaper will used in many smart home applications and it will replace many paper signs, e.g. bus timetables, which will help to make our world more “environmental friendly”.

HOLITECH: We empower the new digital life and expands the opportunity of smart home. People want connecting home appliances for tracking, monitoring and positioning with the internet. So, we can attach a wireless camera as our digital eye to the inside of the fridge, connect the fridge to a smartphone via an app. With the app, you can check the contents of the fridge wherever you are. The smart camera recognizes food using image recognition and learns new things by entering it in the app or using food databases and the barcode on the goods. The software should know typical expired date so that it can issue a warning if the fresh milk in the refrigerator has still not been moved after a week or has been replaced with a new bag. These expiration date notifications should work for any type of food – in case of doubt by manually entering something when you put something in the fridge. The software can also send replenishment notifications for groceries that are needed regularly, for example if the butter is noticeably running low. We provide overall solutions to support the convenient daily life. E.E: What are the most innovative products marketed?
