A synthetic biosensor that mimics properties found in cell membranes and provides an electronic readout of activity could lead to a better understanding of cell biology, development of new drugs, and the creation of sensory organs on a chip capable of detecting chemicals, similar to how noses and tongues work.
Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) is a medical condition where occupants of a building suffer from a series of symptoms or feel unwell for no apparent reason. The effects are linked directly to the time spent in a particular building - they get worse the longer the person is in the building and improve or disappear completely when people leave.
In this episode, we talk about a research study from MIT that estimates the carbon emissions associated with autonomous vehicles will match that currently produced by all of the data centers in the world along with how to address it.
Food safety programs are systems and procedures put in place to ensure that food products are safe for consumption. These programs aim to prevent foodborne illnesses by identifying and controlling hazards that may occur at any stage of the food production process.
Study shows that if autonomous vehicles are widely adopted, hardware efficiency will need to advance rapidly to keep computing-related emissions in check.
Sensors are used in robotics to calculate the condition and environment of robots, using functions similar to the human sensory organs. A variety of sensors are required by different robots to navigate their environment while performing tasks. This article covers the types of sensors in robotics.
Fe+male Tech Heroes Roles Models 36 - Julien Penders: 'Reality is a relative concept, and we must understand that when designing a product.'
The Fe+male Tech Heroes was initially designed as a platform from women to (primarily) women. Over the years, our network has expanded and reached many men who understand that diverse input is pivotal for the success of any project. One of those smart minds is Julien Penders, who believes initiatives like ours are crucial to inspire the younger generation and change society for the better.
Disruptive Technologies (DT), a leading provider of wireless sensor technology, is proud to launch at CES 2023 the latest addition to the sensor platform: a game-changing new wireless temperature sensor for the cold chain market.
Using this approach, researchers can map how light spreads in opaque environments.
Widely publicised in the media, there are rising concerns both within the agricultural industry and from government policymakers as to whether food production can keep up with unprecedented future demands.
The natural resources around us represent the basis for all human activity on Earth. We use these resources to produce food, clean drinking water, clothes, electrical energy, and everything else we need to survive. But these resources are limited.
When some of the Norwegian municipalities faced challenges keeping the required temperature level for the Covid-19 vaccines during transport and storage, they used tiny, versatile sensors from Disruptive Technologies to get the insights they needed.
Cambridge engineers have used drones, handheld particle sensors and a new modelling framework to measure, map and characterise harmful shipping emission particles at both land and sea. It is the first time that multi-characteristic particle measurements – including lung deposited surface area (LDSA), black carbon, and particle number – have been performed in this way, and it is hoped that this research will inform environmental initiatives and support efforts to clean up the maritime sector.
A new type of active pixel sensor that uses a novel two-dimensional material may both enable ultra-sharp cellphone photos and create a new class of extremely energy-efficient Internet of Things (IoT) sensors, according to a team of Penn State researchers.
