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.
When buildings collapse from bombings, earthquakes, or other disasters, the foremost step is to rescue people who may be trapped in the debris. However, it can be difficult to find entrapped people among the huge rubble.
Radar satellites provide the data used to map ocean currents and sea level. However, so far the radar's "eyes" have been blind in areas where the oceans are covered by ice. Researchers have currently formulated a new analysis technique to solve this issue.
Polarization patterns underwater come into view when observing through a camera, engineered to see the world through the eyes of numerous animals that live in the water.
During crisis situations, such as industrial chemical and gas leaks and forest fires, large area environmental monitoring might have a vital role in the mitigation efforts. Each year, thousands of lives are lost globally due to forest fires. Loss of lives and long-term health issues could also be caused due to exposure to the unmonitored emission of toxic gases in remote and industrialized regions.
Sensors play a vital role in detecting pollutants and keeping track of environmental conditions. Fluorescent sensors have the ability to detect the presence of a pollutant by analyzing the change in intensity and/or wavelength of light emitted by the pollutant.
Researchers are developing data analytics and the Industrial IoT for the shipping industry in the latest research project of the Academy of Finland.
The National Science Foundation has awarded a grant to produce sensors that will assess and monitor a key environmental problem - toxins in fresh water.
