Smart skin that can respond to external stimuli could have important applications in medicine and robotics. Using only items found in a typical household, researchers have created multi-sensor artificial skin that's capable of sensing pressure, temperature, humidity, proximity, pH, and air flow.
Pressure measurements enable a newly developed fall detector to “observe” falls that current sensors do not register, thus improving safety for older people who live at home.
Integrated Device Technology, Inc.® (IDT®) today introduced an energy-efficient 24-bit sensor signal conditioner (SSC) IC designed for consumer barometric pressure and thermopile sensors. With an integrated 26-bit digital signal processor (DSP) for linearization and calibration functions, the ZSSC3224 is optimized for high-resolution consumer, industrial, white goods and medical applications, and can also benefit mobile products such as phones and tablets.
MEMSIC Inc. will be demonstrating their latest MEMS based pressure sensor at the upcoming AHR 2016 show in Orlando, Florida, which begins January 25, 2016.
Freely downloadable 3D models have now been added to the Cynergy3 website, which gives new and existing customers the ability to select from the company’s full range of products, enabling customers to check the fit and function of all Cynergy3 products before purchasing.
After more than doubling its annual sales turnover in the last five years, instrumentation specialist Impress Sensors & Systems Ltd has moved from its 4,000 sq.ft. facility in Aldermaston, Berkshire, to new 10,000 sq.ft. premises in Kingsclere, Berkshire.
Researchers at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI) have been awarded a $1.32 million contract from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) as part of the jointly funded Federal Highway Administration's state research program.
The characterisation of the pressure sensors used to develop the next generation of petrol and diesel engines is crucial to optimising their design, improving efficiency and reducing emissions. The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) has developed shock tube facilities for the calibration of these sensors under the dynamic pressure conditions that they experience in use.
HEIDENHAIN is proud to offer the latest technology in machine tool touch probes. Employing a pressure sensor, HEIDENHAIN's unique TS 740 touch probe also simultaneously maintains unusually high accuracy.
