The disclosure describes methods and apparatus for quickly prototyping of a solution developed using one or more sensing devices (e.g., sensors), functional blocks, algorithm libraries, and customized logic. The methods produce firmware executable by a processor (e.g., a microcontroller) on an embedded device such as a development board, expansion board, or the like. By performing these methods on the apparatus described, a user is able to create a function prototype without having deep knowledge of the particular sensing device or any particular programming language. Prototypes developed as described herein enable the user to rapidly test ideas and develop sensing device proofs-of-concept. The solutions produced by the methods and apparatus improve the functioning of the sensor being prototyped and the operation of the embedded device where the sensor is integrated.
In virtual prototyping and assembly validation, visual images of physical components of a product are captured through a camera inbuilt in an augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR) wearable device, registered as 3D models in a virtual workbench. When a first voice command is received to initiate recording, continuous visual motion signals are received as trajectories corresponding to assembling a 3D model of a component. They are recorded as an installation view of the component. The 3D model of the component is dynamically validated while assembling the virtual workbench. The installation view of the component and an installation view of a next component is stored as an animation assembly file. The animation assembly file may be extracted from the AR/VR application and stored in a visual enterprise application as a visual enterprise format such as visual design stream.
The present disclosure relates to a heat exchanger coil prototyping system. The heat exchanger coil prototyping system includes a heat exchanger coil with a first conduit and a second conduit that carry a refrigerant. The first conduit includes a first open end and a second open end. The second conduit includes a third open end and a fourth open end. A fin couples to the first conduit and the second conduit. A quick release connector system also couples to the first and second conduits. The quick release connector system includes a first quick release connector assembly that couples to the first open end of the first conduit and to the third open end of the second conduit to route the refrigerant between the first and second conduits. A second quick release connector assembly couples to the second conduit.
Disclosed is a method for prototyping a graphic user interface (GUI) by a prototyping system. The method includes at least receiving, by a prototyping terminal, through a prototyping interface, an input for setting a change in a value of a reference attribute of a trigger object as a trigger for changing the display state of a reaction object, sensing, by a prototype execution terminal, a change in the value of a reference attribute of a trigger object, and changing, by the prototype execution terminal, the display state of the reaction object using the set trigger when sensing that the value of a reference attribute of a trigger object is changed.
