Over the last ten years, Intellidesign has undertaken the design (and often the manufacture) of a wide range of devices, most of which have been successfully taken to market.
Everyday, somewhere in the world, Intellidesign devices are hard at work monitoring, controlling or exchanging data; in hospital operating theatres, smelters, factories, laboratories, tractors, cars, ports and construction sites.
Some examples are below:
There is a strong demand for precision guidance technology in the mining and construction industries. Intellidesign has developed a range of precision instruments for these industries including a mast angle analyser and a solid state tilt sensor, part of the new excavator system of the Japanese company Topcon, in use across Australia, Europe and the USA.
Rio Tinto Aluminium is one of the largest aluminium manufacturers in the world. Custom Intellidesign controllers have replaced obsolete master nodes and pot controllers in three Rio Tinto smelters in Australia and New Zealand. This is a mission-critical application, where even small losses in efficiency have significant financial impact. The smelting environment requires the controllers to function in strong magnetic fields, with high ambient temperatures, and in the presence of corrosive and abrasive materials.
Intellidesign has helped several medical companies with their electronic devices including a range of bioimpedance products for the biotechnology company Impedimed, with distribution into the USA and Europe. Intellidesign has also developed an aspiration pump for the Cook Group, the largest privately owned medical device manufacturer in the USA, also with international distribution.
Originally developed for Queensland Transport and Queensland Police, Intellidesign's Lynx system provides a mobile portal for officers to wirelessly access a central database for driver and vehicle details. The Lynx system is currently installed in over 300 vehicles across SE Qld.
Melbourne’s new SmartBus system uses Passenger Information Displays (PIDs) designed and manufactured by Intellidesign, some employing solar power. Utilising sunlight-readable colour displays, they show the current time, the route number and destination of the next SmartBus, and the estimated minutes until its arrival. A push button also triggers an audible message of the same information to help passengers with a visual impairment.
Intellidesign has designed several precision GPS guidance systems for broadacre and row-crop farming applications. The first, a winner of an Australian Design Award, was for the Australian company, Beeline Technologies, and this was followed by another sophisticated design for the Swiss-based company, Leica Geosystems.
