The solutions will be offered to communication service providers (CSPs) and telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) which will help leading 5G mobile operators deliver a superior subscriber experience.

Kailash Narayanan, Vice President and General Manager of Keysight’s Wireless Test Group, said, “We’re pleased that Tech Mahindra has chosen Keysight to help them address key 5G test requirements mandated by mobile operators, device makers and various standards. By offering a strong portfolio of 5G carrier acceptance solutions adopted by a connected mobile ecosystem, we’re accelerating global 5G commercialization of multi-mode devices in different form factors.”

Keysight’s industry-first 5G end-to-end design and test solutions enable the mobile industry to accelerate 5G product design development from the physical layer to the application layer and across the entire workflow from simulation, design, and verification to manufacturing, deployment, and optimization. Keysight offers common software and hardware platforms compliant to the latest 3rd Generation Partnership Project standards, enabling the ecosystem to quickly and accurately validate 5G chipsets, devices, base stations and networks, as well as emulate subscriber behaviour scenarios.

Samsung Rolls Out Good Vibes and Relúmĭno Solutions to Brighten Up Lives of the Deafblind and Vision Impaired

Published

on

By

Samsung has introduced two unique solutions—Good Vibes and Relúmĭno—that will help provide a strong communication tool the deafblind and enable people with low vision to see better.

Good Vibes, developed in India, enables the deafblind to have a two-way communication with their caregivers and loved ones using their smartphones. The Good Vibes app uses Morse code to convert vibrations into text or voice and vice-versa. The app has two different user interfaces (UI). One interface has an invisible UI for the deafblind, which uses vibrations, taps and gestures, while the other has a visible UI, a standard chat interface, for the caregiver. With the deafblind interface, a deafblind person uses a combination of dots and dashes to send their messages. The standard interface allows users to type or use voice to send messages to the deafblind. The text or voice is received as vibrations in Morse code that the deafblind can interpret.

Good Vibes app can be downloaded from Samsung Galaxy Store and will be made available on Google Play Store for all other Android smartphone users soon.

Relúmĭno, which was developed by Samsung employees as part of the Company’s C-Lab program globally, is a visual aid application for people with low vision. It enables them to see images clearer by magnifying and minimizing images, highlighting the image outline, adjusting colour contrast and brightness, and reversing colour. For more information on Relúmĭno, log on to https://www.samsungrelumino.com/.

As part of its Citizenship Initiatives, Samsung has partnered with Sense India, a not-for-profit dedicated to improve the lives of the deafblind in the country, to take Good Vibes to the deafblind across the country. Samsung has so far conducted training workshops for Sense India educators and deafblind individuals along with their caregivers in Delhi and Bengaluru. It is now providing Samsung Galaxy A20 smartphones, with Good Vibes installed, to the not-for-profit, which will distribute it to deafblind and their caregivers.

Samsung India has launched a digital video that shows the impact Good Vibes can have on the life of a deafblind individual (https://youtu.be/9djutxpXaQE). The video showcases a deafblind girl who shares a special bond with her mother even though they can’t talk to each other. But when distance comes between them, her mother seeks a new way to communicate with her daughter.

Over the last few months of training with the deafblind and their caregivers, the basic functionality of the app was tested and fine-tuned through their feedback. The notifications, text sizing, duration and interval of vibrations were improved upon after these workshops.

For Relúmĭno, Samsung has partnered with the National Association for the Blind (NAB) Delhi. It will provide Samsung Gear VR and Galaxy Note9 smartphones to NAB Delhi, and will also provide training on how to use them. NAB will use Relúmĭno in classrooms where students with low vision using these devices will be able to see better, helping them improve their learning abilities.

“Samsung uses both its innovation and global network to create positive change, responding to people’s needs around the world and helping them to live better lives, with more choice, freedom and greater possibilities. We are happy we were able to develop technologies such as Good Vibes and Relúmĭno that will help improve quality of life of the deafblind and people with low vision, allowing them to become more aware of the world around them and better integrated with society,” said Peter Rhee, Corporate Vice President, Samsung India.

“Good Vibes is going to create a platform where our society will be able to communicate with deafblind people using smartphones. Samsung is doing exactly what it believes in ‘Do What You Can’t’. We are glad to see Samsung leveraging its technology prowess to build meaningful solutions that help society. At Sense India, we have been working with deafblind for their betterment and development through comprehensive trainings. Good Vibes will help them connect with a larger number of people around them, something they were unable to do so far,” said Parag Namdeo, Head, Advocacy and Networks, Sense India.

“This app is useful for my son Waqar and he is using it independently now. Waqar’s dream is to become a teacher and this app may help him to communicate and understand another person (his students), which will support him in daily living and learning,” said Nargis Shaikh, mother of Waqar Shaikh, a deafblind student who has received training on Good Vibes. Waqar was able to write and understand whole sentences using Morse code on the Good Vibes app in only a few training sessions.

Numr Research’s survey also uncovered certain interesting habits of Indian smartphone users. As per the findings, 52% people reported that they currently own only 1 smartphone whereas 42% reported that they have 2. Another 5% reported having 3 personal smartphones while 1% claimed that they have 4 and/or more. As per the reports, more than 161 million smartphones were sold in India in 2018. When asked how many minutes they usually spend on various smartphone activities, people reported the following:

⦁ They spend over an hour each on Online Shopping (64 min),Social Media (67 min), and watching movies/ videos (69 min)

⦁ On an average, people spend 56 min on phone calls and video calls every day

⦁ 43 minutes are spent listening to music daily

⦁ Texting (Messengers and WhatsApp) occupy another 41 minutes on average

⦁ People reported that they also spend around 30 minutes every day reading articles or online news on their smartphones

Today, Huawei is one of the fastest growing smartphone brand in the world, thanks to relevant customer centric technology innovation that the brand firmly stands for. The company sold over 200 million smartphones in 2018, replacing Apple and riveting a name for itself in the industry. Huawei also shipped 100 million devices by the end of May, thus reaching the 100 million mark faster than it did last year, as per a report by IDC.

Huawei has also managed to mark a new 3-month sales record with its new P30 series, reaching 10 million sales in a mere 85 days, which incidentally is two months faster than the P20 series, from last year. Not only the P30 series, the Huawei Watch GT also broke all sales records having sold over 2 million units since its launch in October last year, making it the all-time popular Huawei smartwatch.

India is currently the second largest smartphone market, only behind China. Also, the smartphone industry in India is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 23.4% between the years 2017-2025.
