Engineers are laying the groundwork for ultrasensitive quantum sensors that push the boundaries of current technology, thanks to the tiny blips in the typically rigid crystal structure of diamonds.
The University of Hong Kong (HKU) Faculty of Engineering scientists have created a coin-sized device that can sense weak electrochemical signals and be utilized for individualized health monitoring and evaluation of disorders like diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and mental health.
Researchers have developed a ‘smart finger’ that has the capacity to identify materials using “triboelectric” sensors that test its ability to gain or lose electrons, as well as determining other characteristics such its roughness, without the risk of causing damage.
The current software release 2.6 for the AI vision system IDS NXT focuses primarily on simplifying app creation. The initial phase in development is often one of the greatest challenges in the realization of a project.
In just a few minutes, scientists at Sweden’s Karolinska Institutet have developed a small sensor for identifying pesticides on fruit. The approach, which was described as real evidence in the journal Advanced Science, uses flame-sprayed silver nanoparticles to boost the chemical signal.
Fluorescent sensors are employed to label and image a broad range of molecules. They provide an exclusive look within living cells. However, they can primarily be employed only in cells grown in tissues close to the surface of the body or in a lab dish, as their signal is lost when they are embedded very deeply.
Hundreds of sensors the size of a milk bottle will be buried across Australia to help scientists better understand what lies beneath the Earth’s surface.
Wireless communications have progressed from 3G to 4G to 5G, and the next phase is underway. What does 6G include, and how will it interact with current infrastructure?
As Wi-Fi becomes more widely available in cities, and possibly at higher frequencies, it may become reliant on a common urban resource: streetlight poles.
Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization and hyperconverged solutions, today announced its partnership with SecureServ, an Australian-based cyber security solutions and network performance distributor.
