The Consortium Partners: SEQUOIA


SEQUOIA was formed in 1983, by a group of professionals, whose experience in the area of electronic design, software development and mechanical engineering led them to wish to offer a more encompassing means of problem solving than that normally available.

There are three main areas in which research and development has been concentrated to date:
  1. Quality control and measurement: Sequoia has handled projects in this area both for public administrations and industry. The solutions engineered for them are among the most innovative, as they make use of electronic imaging and analysis, vibration analysis, sound wave analysis and parallel robotics.
  2. Industrial automation: In this sector the major concern has been the design of software based on networking for the control of industrial processes. The main focus in these projects is towards the interface between the distributed software and the specific hardware, whether sensors or mechanical devices.
  3. Sensor production: the "Triaxial Acceleration Computer (R)", is the main product derived directly from a research activity. This innovative device acquires and processes the accelerations and vibrations inside of the sensor itself, while the embedded microprocessor outputs simple digital signals, useful to being directly introduced in the machine logical control (PLC). Sequoia is starting mass production of this sensor.
In the HYMM project, Sequoia role is research and technological development on smart sensor and control Hw/Sw devices for smart structure control.
