Seven patents for Fayez Batis in mechanical engineering in Canada

February 3, 2021

The Yemeni researcher at the University of Toronto, Canada (Fayez Batis) has registered seven patents in the fields of micro motors, speed and focus mobile cameras, ultra-sensitive acceleration sensors, micro-power sensors, three-dimensional touch panels

One of the innovations of the camera is a small mobile camera with a precise electrostatic motor to achieve rapid automatic adjustment and image stabilization. Despite the shaking of the hand while taking pictures, automatic adjustment and image stabilization require moving five lenses inside the camera at a distance of tens of microns in a small fraction of a second. (The micron is equivalent to a part of a thousandth of a millimeter).

Batis explains that his invention in the field of precision electrostatic motors is the first technology in the world capable of moving the required mass in cameras that weigh 60 milligrams by electrostatic motors

“The electrostatic motors will be a substitute for the electromagnetic motors contained in the small cameras, which cause the large size of the camera and slow automatic adjustment as well as the rapid consumption of battery power during the imaging process,” Batis said.

The integration of these engines into mobile cameras is a technical achievement that will add many advantages such as small size and speed of performance in automatic adjustment and image stabilization and prevent vibration and low battery consumption.

Batis said he helped establish an emerging company that adopts these inventions and offers them as products for the electronics market and that the company is in the process of producing an integrated camera that works on these engines, starting its first marketing activities at the

global mobile exhibition to be held in Barcelona, Spain later this month.

These innovations are an unprecedented achievement for a Yemeni researcher in Canada in the field of micro-motors and high-speed intelligence sensors.

Mr. Batis achieved his innovations during his doctoral studies under the supervision of Tunisian Professor Reza Ben Murad at the Mechatronics and Microelectronics Laboratory at the University of Toronto, Canada, which he successfully completed and excelled in the field of precision systems from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the end of December 2016 .

Batis patented his inventions with the United States Patent and Trademark Office(USPTO) and was awarded two patents while other patents were under evaluation

and grants.

He received many awards in inventions competitions during his bachelor’s degree, including second place in the Stanford Innovation Competition in Malaysia and the third in the International Invention Competition for Engineering Students.

He also patented his graduation project, which was the design of a wheelchair for handicapped people.

In the master’s degree in microelectronics, he was awarded the Huawei Award in the Systems Design Competition at the TEXPO Science Fair in Canada in 2014
