Motion tracking technology was mainly used for the production of blockbuster films. However, the technology has been introduced to the fields of games and various contents in order to create natural facial expressions and movements of virtual characters. Motion tracking technology has recently been introduced to the game industry. When an actor wears a motion capture suit, put sensors on the body and moves, a character on the monitor reproduces the movements immediately. The technology can realize the natural expressions of characters. VR industry, which is one of the emerging blue ocean markets, has actively implemented motion tracking technology. When producing VR contents, motion tracking and facial technologies are applied to the process. And more natural facial expressions and motions of the character can be realized. Also, a lot of researches have been carried out in the domestic field to overcome the weak points of the existing motion tracking technology. The existing technology costs a lot of money, has limitations on space and has a shadow area according to different angles. The wearable 3D motion capture system was developed based on the FBG, or Fiber Bragg Grating sensor. When using the system, even small joints of fingers can be measured precisely. And it can drastically reduce the delay rate. We introduce the accelerated application of motion tracking technology to the production of realistic contents.
Biomimetics refers to a technology that imitates the structures and functions of natural living things and applies them to the lives of humans. The technology has recently been applied to the medical sector. And new medical materials and equipment have been developed. Dog’s sense of smell is about 10 thousand times better than humans. And a domestic research team has developed a device that imitated the function of a dog’s nose. And it can detect lung cancer only with breathing. When exhaling toward the electronic nose, it can sniff like a dog’s nose and transform the smell into an electrical signal. And the diseases can be detected by analyzing the signals. A domestic research team developed a snake-fang inspired stamping patch, which can make drugs permeate into the skin, just like a pain relief patch. And it was developed by imitating the fangs of poisonous snakes. When simply attaching the patch, the liquid medicine can be delivered to the body only within 15 seconds, even without applying pressure. Biomimetics is a core technology for AI and robotics. The legs of dead insects can move when implementing the technology. The artificial nerves can keep its original characteristics even when the nerves get stretched. So it can be used for soft robots and neural prosthetic devices. We look into the rise of biomimetics, which has been actively developed and commercialized in the medical sector.
The existing distribution industry mainly focused on transportation and storing. However, it has evolved into an integrated service industry based on the collaboration among production, delivery and distribution. A lot of countries have promoted green distribution policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. And companies have contributed to preserving the environment by developing related technologies. And a distribution center which applied eco-friendly technologies like LNG cold energy, hydrogen fuel cell and solar power has been constructed for the first time in the country. As the firm combined LNG cold energy, solar power, hydrogen fuel cell and ESS, or Energy Storage System, there’s no need to use the energy supplied from outside. By using LNG cold energy which used to be dumped at sea, the company has made use of hydrogen fuel cell that is made with vaporized natural gas. And it can provide cold energy for 24 hours. It provides more than 70% of energy-saving effect in comparison to the existing distribution center which used electric freezers. Therefore, the business has garnered a lot of attention as an eco-friendly distribution system. Moreover, the firm has introduced a method that can use the electric power at night by utilizing ESS, as well as a power generation system that uses hydrogen fuel cell and solar power. Based on the energy independent system, it is planning to provide a one-stop cold chain service which can cover distribution and processing services for fresh food as well as agency service for distribution, import and export as well as customs business. We introduce an energy independent distribution center, which has applied eco-friendly new and renewable energy sources and contributed to the growth of a new energy industry.
