Laure Bidault des Chaumes - 21-févr.-2017 12:30:11

Ulli is a new web browser that improves and simplifies the mobile Internet navigation experience with Artificial Intelligence and one-hand design. Biggerpan  will be demoing its smart browser Ulli at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, between February 27th – 2nd March 2017, on the French Tech pavilion, Hall 8.1 Stand 8.1E49 of the App Planet area. Improving web browsing through practical design and the power of AI Ulli, the first Smart Web Browser for mobile, is now available worldwide on the App Store. After being part of the new Google and GSV Pioneer Accelerator in Silicon Valley, Biggerpan officially launched its smart browser Ulli for the iPhone, which was nominated 2016 Mobile App of the Year by Product Hunt . Making mobile browsing genuinely mobile 75% of Internet use will be mobile this year , according to Zenith Media. But have you ever tried browsing the web on your phone while on the go? It’s really cumbersome:     - The keyboard is tiny and we often make typos     - Multiple tabs are poorly handled     - Copy-pasting is a hassle     - It often requires using two hands With this in mind, Biggerpan wanted to ease the pain . “ The Internet and the smartphone are two revolutionary technologies that have radically changed our lives, yet they don’t work well together because the experience of the Web is not suited for mobility ,” says Biggerpan founder and CEO Eric Poindessault . “ Ulli is the first web browser that solves that problem. ” Ulli liberates the mobile web browsing experience      - Key browser features such as search results are always one tap away, making it easier to find what you want fast.      - Thanks to its innovative interface where all the controls are placed at the bottom of the screen, you can navigate with just one hand , saving you time and perfect for when on the go. Leveraging the power of AI for a one-tap experience Ulli further enhances mobile web browsing with its unique feature called the Magic Button . When pressing the Magic Button, a predictive recommendation engine powered by artificial intelligence analyzes the context of the current page and surfaces the most relevant information and purchases for you to browse. No typing, no searching, the Magic Button finds what you need, like a ’ self-driving Internet ’ for your phone. For example, if you are reading an article about a movie, you can press the Magic Button to read about the actors, watch the trailer or buy tickets online. Once you have bought your tickets, press the Magic Button again and you can find restaurants near the cinema. And finally, once you have chosen a restaurant, press the Magic Button to request an Uber to take you there without entering the address. This recommendation engine works with any other search or web navigation. Ulli creates a one-thumb web browsing experience that unlocks the potential of a seamless one-tap shopping on your phone.     In addition to its smart recommendation engine, the mobile browser also comes with a full set of advanced features , including:     - an ad blocker     - full screen mode     - incognito mode     - favourites     - a news feed     - a VPN (in progress) Download Ulli for free on the App Store . Visit  Biggerpan’s website for more information including a video.    ABOUT Ulli is a smart mobile web browser developed by Biggerpan, a French-American startup company with offices in San Francisco and Paris. Its mission statement is to build a brain for the Web, to allow a better integration of the technology into our lives, without all the pain and frictions that are found in traditional online activities. The iOS app simplifies web browsing on a mobile device and recommends the most relevant content and actions for people to navigate based on the context of their current browsing.      CONTACT /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Tableau Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; line-height:115%; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:11.0pt; font-family:"Arial",sans-serif; color:black; mso-ansi-language:EN-US;}table.TableNormal {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-unhide:no; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 0cm 0cm 0cm; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; line-height:115%; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:11.0pt; font-family:"Arial",sans-serif; color:black; mso-ansi-language:EN-US;} Biggerpan, Inc.

French innovator Cedrat Technologies launches MICA, its new range of linear actuators

Adeline Perrault - 30-nov.-2016 12:34:38

      CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES is unveiling its linear Moving Iron Controllable Actuator (MICA) product line onto the market, with associated drive electronics, in response to requirements in the industrial sector for highly reliable, long-life solutions.   The MICA linear actuators have been specifically developed for extremely long lifetime use, designed for zero maintenance over several years of continuous operation. This level of performance is achieved thanks to fixed coil and magnet designs, without electric flying leads and an efficient contact-free flexure bearing design. The 1KVA CSA96 power amplifier has been developed alongside the MICA product range. It features reactive power recovery, achieving more than 90% energy efficiency and it is able to drive both single and multiple MICA configurations. The moving iron actuator designs created by CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES are the highest performing in the sector compared to other classical magnetic actuators. The MICA actuator range is designed for high controllability, with higher force levels within more compact volumes and greater electrical efficiency. Their high efficiency results in heat dissipation through the very low Joule effect, together with easy and direct cooling on dedicated interfaces. The MICA actuators’ extremely long lifetime is a remarkable performance achievement, which is the result of CEDRAT TECHNLOGIES’ knowhow and experience in flexure bearing designs, built up over years of working with mechanisms as well as developing long-lifetime products in the aerospace and defence sectors. The moving mechanism assembly of the MICA range, with no sliding contact or friction losses, is able to accomplish almost perpetual movement on the flexure bearings, close to resonance, providing clients with very high powered, very low energy consuming and very low heat dissipating actuators. Significant efforts have been made on the actuator casing, to achieve an efficient fixed coil heat sinking design onto an aluminium structure, able to dissipate the coil’s Joule effect heat load by conduction towards the mechanical interfaces, cooled by either natural convection using blades, or by forced convection using air, or refrigerant cooling loop interfaces. This design offers the possibility of using the maximum force of the actuator and the maximum electrical power over very long periods of time, which cannot be achieved by commercial moving coil actuators currently on the market which have low cooling capabilities. The MICA design incorporates high thermal cooling, is lubricant-free, with no limited life ball bearings or plain bushing guiding devices. These features make it compatible with low maintenance devices and long lifetime performance requirements used in harsh environments such as warm and dusty conditions in isolated places without natural convection. Therefore, the MICA range is fully adapted for continuous operation with a high level of integrated functionality in production machines, machining processes requiring vibration assistance, or precision control such as active chatter suppression. Equally, the range is suitable for internal thermal fluid machines such as pumps, compressors, valves, linear alternators, or as standalone devices for vibration cancellation and energy recovery in transportation applications. About CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES: CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES SA is a high tech SME, part of ACTIVE STRUCTURE FINANCE, with 40 employees. The firm is based in the French Innovation Valley, close to Grenoble, and is supported by BPI France. CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES is specialised in the innovation of smart actuators, smart sensors, mechatronic systems, detection systems and technological training courses. Its compact, dynamic and accurate products for mechatronics systems in challenging environments are recognised and appreciated worldwide by customers operating in varied fields such as aerospace, biomedical sciences, automated manufacturing, optronics and more.

They awarded prizes in three categories: -          Innovation -          International Development -          Customer / Supplier Relationships RUSTIN won the French Rail award for Innovation In the rail rolling stock industry, many years of experience is the key for a better and safer business.  The very highest degree of regulation for flame resistance, sound insulation, safety devices, for both local and regional transport as well as long distance travel to high-speed services with a worldwide reliability for our rubber sealing system is already a reality for RUSTIN. As a leading system supplier we have been active in designing and manufacturing rubber solutions in low-smoke fire-resistant compounds for and together with our customers for more than 80 years.  The very highest degree of technical precision is the focus of our product development work.  We provide customer-oriented solutions. RUSTIN’s rubber compounds for fire resistant seal are a new dimension into safety, with a full compliance to the EN 45 545-2. Our product & technology We are all guilty of getting frustrated when traversing the huge underground network that connects the oldest subway capital city like London, Paris, and transports millions of people each day! While frustration and stress are sometimes called for, here’s something that’ll make your journey through the underground easier. Introducing new modern signaling systems, delays due to signal, security and door failures will be reduced, making life for passengers more fluid with a reliable service. On the platform, the passenger will know immediately the status of the current operation of the door. Each door will provide its own status by an individual signal. Green – system is on and open, red flashing – the door security system is on and the door will close, white, the system is locked. Easy and modern signaling will improve the walk through the carriage, helping to ease the access and extra demand at peak time.

Annual turnover is around €15m, more than 65% is achieved through exports to 50 countries. FLEXELEC is a part of the OMERIN group, world leader in conductor cables for extreme conditions.  “The Customer-Supplier relationship French Rail Award received by FLEXELEC during the last INNOTRANS 2016 in Berlin is a fantastic achievement for our small company. It shows we choose a coherent strategy face to the very specific challenge of our markets. Specific because our expertise is manufacturing and conceiving tailor-made heating cables and heating mats for many different uses, from switchers ice melting in Stockholm to the complete floor heating of the new STADLER high speed train, or even the toilet equipment’s temperature maintenance, so we have to be versatile and adapt to each project needs.
