Marineterrein Living Lab
For the Marineterrein, LIFE electronic is currently the main provider for their data and I.o.T. architecture. We manage multiple sensors and actuators, store and distribute all collected data, and make sure that the system stays up and running. We developed a cutting-edge Living lab software stack for the Marineterrein, allowing their users to rapidly experiment and and innovate.
Examples of innovation built upon our stack:
Portable Crowd Counting Camera
For the City of Amsterdam, we designed & developed a prototype crowd counting camera based on the NVIDIA Jetson technology. It uses 4G for internet connectivity and allows the city to monitor the crowdedness of public spaces without having to install dedicated camera hardware. As the algorithm runs directly on the hardware, no images are being sent to the cloud. Thus the privacy of the citizens is ensured.
We were responsible for all parts of the projects.
LEAFLIGHTS: SMART LED LIGHTS FOR MARINETERREIN FITNESSTUIN
For the Marineterrain of Amsterdam, we developed Smart LED lights that notify users of the fitness area whenever the area becomes to crowded. Making use of the Public Eye platform, the system predicts the density of the area and notifies smart LED controllers to change the colours. LIFE developed the LED hardware, the controllers and the connection to Marineterrein's Public Eye system.

THE LEAFLOCK: QRCODE-ENABLED SMART LOCK
For an innovative hotel chain, LIFE electronic has designed and developed a smart lock system that makes use of QR-Codes to grant access. Through a self-made centralised management UI, prospective students can easily book a room and retrieve a QRCode that allows access during the booking period. The system allows the hotel to drastically scale back on staff through fully automated check-ins. LIFE took care of all aspects of the system. From design, architecture to software & hardware development.
DOLBY TECHNOLOGIES INC.
For Dolby Technologies Inc., LIFE electronic developed a music player for their Dolby Atmos car technology. The music player is deployed on Surface Pro tablets within a Tesla car and currently showcased around the world to interested customers.

LORAWAN MOISTURE SENSOR FOR SENSOTERRA
For Sensoterra, we developed the firmware of the second version of their ultra low-power moisture sensor based on LoraWAN.
Their product is actively used by farmers around the world to improve farming efficiency and moisture quality.

VOIP BASED SMART DOORBELL CONTROLLER (IDORMOBILE)
For iDorMobile, we developed the iDor Mobile Controller. A VoIP based system that allows home owners to fully remotely manage their smart iDorMobile Doorbell.
iDorMobile is used all-over the United States in family houses and multi-tentant apartment buildings.
For the AMS institute in Amsterdam, we developed three ShutterCams for a novel Social Monitoring experiment in the Marineterrein Living Lab. The cameras make use of our Crowd Monitoring A.I. and come equipped with a bright-red shutter that is remotely controlled. The shutter is an active signal to the visitors whether they are being monitored or not. The visitors of the Marineterrein can interact with the ShutterCam through gadgets that are deployed on the ground.

PUBLIC-EYE: CROWD MONITORING PLATFORM
Together with the Tapp and the City of Amsterdam CTO Office, we developed Public Eye, the world's first Open Source machine learning platform for Crowd Counting. The system is currently deployed at Marineterrain Amsterdam, Johann Cruif arena, and others.
LIFE electronic was the main developer and responsible for architecture, design, implementation & roll-out at the city.
