is to move the seat automatically," said Christopher Meyer, product engineer
for CMT. "We believe if you move, it improves your comfort, reduces fatigue,
promotes alertness and increases blood flow to the lower extremities.
invented by a chiropractor, combines a proprietary software algorithm with the
vehicle's power seat hardware. At regular intervals, the software wakes up the
power functions, opening and closing the seat like a clamshell. The key is the
motion of the seat bottom, which moves in half-degree increments until it
reaches a total travel of three degrees. In addition to working with the
brushless dc motors that move the so-called "seat pan," it also interfaces with
the seat's recline motor and lumbar support motors, if the vehicle incorporates
is to redistribute the pressure points in the body and change the way forces travel
through the spine," Meyer said.
engineers say that by supplying motion, the company's patented software concept
provides a function that vehicle occupants normally seek when they naturally move
around in their seats during long drives.
body is very dynamic," notes the inventor, Dr. Paul Phipps, in an online video
describing the technology. "It craves motion. Motion is how it functions well."
On Memorial Day, Americans remember the sacrifices the US armed forces have made, and continue to make, in service to the country. All of us should also consider the developments in technological capabilities and equipment over the years that contribute to the success of our military operations.
In order to keep in line with safety protocols, industrial networks need to be filtered in a semantic way so that only information related to diagnostics is flowing back to the vendor and that any communications that could be used for remote machine operations are suppressed.
Advanced visualization can depict an entire plant in motion, while also detailing an individual workstation. Individual products can be rendered different for each discipline involved — marketing, engineering, or suppliers.
