Intersoft Eurasia, a Russian technology company, which develops DO-RA (portable device with function of radiation dosimeter), took part in a recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
The advantage of DO-RA devices is that they are based on a very small semiconductor radiation sensor, and the device itself can be used not only as a separate gadget, but implemented as a module in a smartphone or smartphone case. Such option will enable many customers to get equipped with portable technology which can be used in any environment to measure the level of radiation.
Currently DO-RA modules are believed to be used in Project Ara modular phone, developed by Google, and in a modular case for smartphones, developed by a Hong-Kong startup Nexpaq. But at CES 2016 wider range potentials of DO-RA device were displayed.
Together with Bosch representative, a company manufacturing smart house sensors, new opportunities of integrating DO-RA modules into smart houses’ environmental safety were discussed. With representatives of Huawei, Dyson, ENOLGAS Group there were talks on combining DO-RA with products like smartphones, vacuum cleaners, and air conditioners.
Particularly striking at the CES this year was the idea of any object in the environment becoming a gadget with its own computer, sensor system, and ability to communicate with other objects. The demand for sensors in the world is unprecedented. Some analysts forecast trillions of new sensors sold and installed annually within just a few yeas. The company’s recent invention is a solid DO-RA radiation sensor that can be widely produced at any microelectronics plant and explore capabilities of current trends.
