Internet of Things/Wireless Data
Black Labs was one of the earliest developers of data over cellular. We have implemented wireless systems using cellular data, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth including Low Energy Bluetooth, and several proprietary wireless systems.
BLT has been involved with a wide range of sensors that measure the position (GPS, accelerometer and magnetic compass) temperature, pressure, light level, sound and heart-rate in both medical and non-medical applications.
Battery Technology/Portable Devices
Black Labs has experience with rechargeable and non-rechargeable battery systems from the smallest coin cells to large vehicle battery packs.
The Compass Portable Disposable Pressure Monitor developed by Black Labs is powered by a single tiny coin cell and has a battery life of over 500 hours of operation.
