A multidisciplinary team based at KAUST has created a lightweight, flexible, and robust salinity sensor that can be secured to aquatic animals to enable their habitat to be monitored for a long term.
A novel sensor fusion method based on 3D imaging and X-ray could potentially enhance the 3D modeling of mineral resources and also enable more efficient sorting of precious minerals and metals.
Drones are already used by farmers to soar over large fields and monitor crop health, temperature, and humidity. But these machines consume so much power to fly that they cannot travel very far without needing a charge.
CyberOptics® Corporation, a leading global developer and manufacturer of high precision 3D sensing technology solutions, announces it will demonstrate its ReticleSense® Auto Multi Sensor™ (AMSR) – the world’s most efficient and effective wireless measurement devices for semiconductor fabs and equipment OEMs at the SPIE PhotoMask Technology and EUV Lithography conference, September 17-20 at the Monterey Conference Center in California in booth #104.
New research proposes that weather patterns resulting in flash floods may, in the future, be tracked and predicted by smartphones.
Compared to draw-wire sensors based on a conventional potentiometer, the new wireSENSOR WPS-MK88 U45R with a non-contact potentiometer achieves 8 times more working cycles, which extends the sensor’s service life to its maximum.
The eddyNCDT 3060 inductive measurement system is based on eddy currents and enables fast, precise displacement measurements in industrial environments.
The Measuring Division of Kaman Precision Products, Inc., a world leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance, precision non-contact position measuring systems, announces the availability of its line of Extreme Environment high-precision displacement sensors and systems.
Neal Stewart and co-authors study the future of houseplants as visually pleasing and functional warnings of home health.
Wireless microsensors have been an innovative means for environmental monitoring as they enable users to measure spaces that were earlier off the limits of study—for example, remote areas in the human body, vehicle components, or toxic areas.
