Baumer, a manufacturer of sensor solutions, announced the launch of a new range of inductive sensors that are suitable for distance measurement and object identification.
Precision Measurement Engineering, a developer of oceanographic and limnologic instrument design, has provided a LakeESP sensor monitoring buoy to the US Geological Survey in 2010. The device will be deployed at the Great Salt Lake.
In a bid to meet NASA’s endeavor to detect levels of aerosol in the earth’s atmosphere, Raytheon will install aboard Glory, a NASA spaceship, a sensor, called the Aerosol Polarimetry Sensor.
AWS Convergence Technologies has decided to relaunch the WeatherBug under a new brand name Earth Networks. The company plans to put in $25 million towards creating a sensor network that will have in its first phase about 100 observation posts.
The Global Observer UAV surveillance aircraft of the U.S. Air Force has accomplished its initial flight test recently. The advanced aircraft, developed after six years of persistent efforts, features a wingspan of about 56.5 meter or 175 feet and four electrically activated propellers.
An advanced study has been carried out in fruit flies by Ziv Bar-Joseph at Carnegie Mellon University for significantly utilizing wire-free sensor grids and for executing various disseminated computing purposes.
United Microelectronics has declared that the company has manufactured customer Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) sensor products at its foundry.
All Weather, a developer of weather information systems and meteorological sensors based in California, has received an order to deliver 46 Automated Weather Observing Systems (AWOS) Type II to be used across India.
There are 136 coastal cities worldwide, with populations of over one million that rely on the protection of dikes and levees. The pressure on these protective barriers is mounting because the climate change tends to cause the sea level to rise, and gives us good reason to expect more frequent storms.
A new study reveals that the fly arranges the hair-like structures of its nervous system to feel and hear. That method now serves as a model for refining wireless sensor networks, among other computer applications.
