According to computer scientists at the University of Bath, garment seams sewn with conductive yarn can be utilized to monitor body motion precisely when placed strategically.
Optical Surfaces Ltd has been selected by the Optical Engineering Group at the University of Warwick (UK) School of Engineering to supply key focusing optics to enable accurate 3D tracking and analysis of mosquito flight behaviour.
Tufts University engineers have designed and demonstrated new flexible thread-based sensors that are capable of measuring the neck movements, offering information on the direction, degree of displacement, and angle of rotation of the head.
Scientists from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering have now designed an ultra-sensitive, extremely durable strain sensor that can be integrated into textiles and soft robotic systems.
Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon has launched a new non-contact capacitive measurement system that complements its existing eddy current solution for turbo charger speed measurement.
A University of Massachusetts Amherst health informatician is developing a mobile health system, leveraging a wearable sensor that slips on a finger like a ring, to monitor and encourage movement and activity in the weak upper limb of stroke survivors.
Integrating first-of-its-kind washable hydrogel electrodes with a pulse sensor, researchers from the University of Massachusetts Amherst have developed smart eyewear to track eye movement and cardiac data for physiological and psychological studies.
Input Rejection Filters are used when it is necessary to delay measurements until target motion stabilizes, or ignore an unintended object. These filters can ignore all but the closest or the farthest measurement in a sample of easurements.
Researchers have designed a new kind of electronics called “drawn-on-skin electronics” that help draw multifunctional circuits and sensors on the skin using an ink pen.
Everybody is familiar with them, especially as they are more in use right now than they have ever been and we take them for granted as an important part of the battle to combat the spread of Covid 19.
