Transform home automation with the Internet of Things (IoT) — built on quality components from Sharp
Stand up in the middle of your favourite television broadcast to adjust the thermostat? A thing of the past with a smartphone or smartwatch that’s connected to your home through the internet of things.
But a smartwatch is only useful as long as its battery can last, and the display accounts for a large portion of a watch’s energy consumption. When you start from a Sharp Memory in Pixel (MiP) display, power requirements plummet. Memory in Pixel displays consume only a fraction of the energy that conventional LCDs do. We achieved this astounding feat by integrating one bit of memory into each and every pixel of the display, allowing static images to remain visible without frequent refreshing.
MiP displays are also ideal for home automation, for instance in thermostats powered by a battery or energy harvester. Connected electric vehicles (EVs) such as bicycles and cars also benefit from the low power consumption and indoor/outdoor readability of Memory in Pixel displays.
