Here is a list of functions and functionalities that have been developed from our experience of working with partner companies. Please contact us if you are planning to use a similar application.
Operation of wheel chairs and Smarthomes per smartglasses
An extremely beneficial synergy arose from a cooperation with Fa. Munevo. This company is specialized in operating wheelchairs for people who are completely paralyzed. Only small head movements are needed to enable the user to control their motorized wheelchair.
In addition to locomotion, home automation is now also integrated via the realKNX Server. The Smart-glasses enable the user to choose a variety of home automation functions which are displayed on a window. Small head movements allow the user to navigate through the menu and to trigger the KNX functions.
– the user can control all lights, shutters and heating with the smart glasses
– the smart glasses connects to the Home Automation via an API provided by the ProKNX realKNX server
In addition, at home it is also possible to trigger the functions by voice.
The next planned development to be worked on will be to integrate realKNX Augmented Reality with the glasses. In the future, by simply aiming at a device, the function will be already selected, and then will be triggered by a head movement.
Connection of Keba car charging stations to KNX
Using a proprietary communication protocol, the KEBA charging station enables relevant charging data to be read out and the station to be controlled, e.g. by specifying the maximum charging current.
An application of the realKNX server establishes the data connection between the station and the KNX bus. This allows load management at KNX level that takes into account the reference current from the grid, the charging capacity of the photovoltaic system, and also the state of charge of the energy storage device. This information is needed in order to determine the target charging capacity for the car.
Up to 10 charging stations can simultaneously be operated by a realKNX Server.
