A laser-based sensor developed at KAUST could improve monitoring of benzene emissions and limit exposure to this pollutant. In collaboration with Saudi Aramco, KAUST researchers have developed a device that accurately senses extremely low concentrations of benzene in real time.
Scientists from Disruptive & Sustainable Technologies for Agricultural Precision (DiSTAP), an Interdisciplinary Research Group (IRG) at the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART), MIT's research enterprise in Singapore, have engineered a novel type of plant nanobionic optical sensor that can detect and monitor, in real-time, levels of the highly toxic heavy metal arsenic in the belowground environment.
Photonics researchers from Aarhus University and the Technical University of Denmark DTU collaborated with chemical engineers and chemists to develop a new sensor system that can help reduce air pollution in Denmark considerably.
New research shows how a combination of imagery from mobile phones, drones and satellites can be used to clamp down on banana threats.
Two Cornell researchers with the goal of using high-resolution sensors to help vineyard growers find nutrient deficiencies have been awarded a grant worth $676,000 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
FreshAir, an industry leader in the development of sensors to detect and alert for hazardous chemicals, announces that it has been awarded a Fast-Track Phase II grant totaling over $1.2 million from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, part of the National Institutes of Health.
Graphene-based sensors could be used to monitor adverse environments that are inhospitable to present-day technologies.
Satellites in space and a network of ground-based sensors could be used to monitor the quality of Australia’s inland waterways, reservoirs and coastal environments.
Introducing noise to improve a weak signal is a common sensing phenomenon in the animal realm. However, it is unusual in the case of artificial sensors.
Miniature fitness trackers for lobsters and devices to monitor the quality of their shipping conditions are being prototyped as part of an initiative to reduce stress points and improve survival in the lobster supply chain for the Maine lobster industry.
