Selection of ITRI’s Technology Novelties

2015 R&D 100 Awards

ITRI is devoted to fostering technology innovation and industry upgrade by integrating its cross-disciplinary R&D resources and networking with its industrial and academic partners. In this issue, we are bringing you a selection of ITRI’s recent technological advancements that address industry’s needs and may improve the quality of life. These technologies were also named as the finalists of 2015 R&D 100 Awards.

Some innovations are developed for smart living, for example, the revolutionary Plasmon-Coupled Organic Light-Emitting Diode (PCOLED) technology and the Higher Sensitivity Tactile-Film System for Wearable Orthosis (HSTS). Some are green technologies for firefighter safety and water purification, such as the Fluid-Driven Emergency Lighting, and the PolyE Membrane. Others can optimize production process and performance, including SuperSizer, gLaserTrim, LIM-3D, Epitaxy Optimum Coupling System, and Optical Engine for Material Grain Microstructure-Controllable Additive Manufacturing Technology.

What can these technologies do? And how are they different from current solutions? Let’s take a glance at these novelties and their applications.
