NORTHVILLE, Mich. and GUANGZHOU, China, March 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gentherm Incorporated (NASDAQ-GS: THRM), the global market leader and a developer of innovative thermal management technologies, announced today that Chinese furniture and mattress manufacturer Xilinmen Furniture Co., Ltd. introduced a new bedding product featuring Gentherm's latest line of thermal heated and cooled mattress technology at the 33rd China International Furniture Fair (CIFF 2014) in Guangzhou, China.
The CIFF 2014 show, which runs through March 22, includes a demonstration bed containing Gentherm's Climate Control Sleep System™ (CCSS™) technology, as one of Xilinmen's featured new products under its Sleemon brand. The demonstration bed is being shown during the 6th design session in Hall C 6.4.
Gentherm's CE compliant CCSS technology allows for programmable cycling throughout the night to continuously set the temperature of the mattress to best suit the occupant(s).
CIFF 2014, organized by the China Foreign Trade Guangzhou Exhibition General Corporation, is being held at the China Import and Export Fair Pazhou Complex in Guangzhou, China.
The Climate Control Sleep System (CCSS) utilizes a highly-efficient, solid state thermoelectric device to direct warmed or cooled air to a special air distribution layer of the mattress through air ducts connecting the mattress to the foundation. Two separate temperature zones have their own heat or cool settings for a personalized microclimate sleep environment. There are five available settings in each of the heat and cool modes as well as an ambient setting. The bed can be controlled using either the master control unit or one of the two remotes provided for each zone. A clock and timer are also included in the master control unit to allow for preconditioning of the mattress and cycling in minute or hour increments for up to 8 hours of individualized comfort.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...
