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.
Scientists at Penn State have designed and tested a stretchable and wearable gas sensor for environmental sensing, in collaboration with Northeastern University and five universities in China.
Researchers have designed an extremely sensitive and precise nitrogen dioxide (NO2) sensor that holds life-saving, promising applications in public, domestic, and industrial environments.
In recent years the development of flood warning systems has benefited from advances in sensor, datalogger and communications technology.
Technical consultancy Firnas Shuman delivers one-year ZX Lidars wind measurement campaign for major developer
Globally, scores of kids do not reach their developmental potential and this can be partly attributed to higher rates of exposure to legacy and present-day pollutants.
Resolve Optics has developed a range of non-browning (radiation resistant) zoom lenses for use in environments subject to radiation.
One of the most important challenges, when designing monitoring facilities in remote locations, is resilience. Remote tide gauge systems operate in extremely harsh environments and require robust communications systems that almost never fail and are capable of storing large amounts of data locally as an extra protection for data.
Transport networks are crucial infrastructure and are the lifelines of contemporary society. Roads, bridges, tunnels, and railway tracks can be damaged by adverse weather conditions.
