Devils Invent: NKK SmartDisplay®

September 27–29, 2019, Tempe Campus

Devils Invent brought to you by NKK SmartDisplay® was focused on their SmartDisplay® technology. A SmartDisplay® is a revolutionary new way to combine the tactile feel of a button with the immersive display of a touch screen.

Event Winners: 

Team Members: Aditya Sudhakar, Pawan Vijayanagar, and Taylor Ortiz
Project: “Our goal was to improve the safety and efficacy of remotely or centrally controlled mechanisms using the NKK SmartDisplay. We achieved this by designing a system which would stream real time video of the mechanism in action directly to the Smart Button which controlled it. This created a feedback redundancy for the operator and also served to increase the operator’s confidence in these mechanisms.”
