Smartphones, as well as smartwatches, fitness trackers and other wearables are about to get better at guiding users and mapping their sporting achievements even where satellite navigation cannot work, using the latest electronic compass (eCompass) from STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications.
Electrolab announces the release of the RU Flex Model 2100 Digital Level Sensor (DLS). The RU Flex 2100 DLS is a flexible, extremely rugged, chemically and abrasion resistant digital level sensor offering continuous, accurate and reliable monitoring of tank level and temperature.
When the crows return to campus this fall, a group of technology students believe their product - Scarecrow Inc.'s ShockTrainer 9000 - could be the silver bullet for keeping the birds at bay.
To teach concepts in forces and motion, many schools utilize low-friction dynamics carts and tracks, and then attach sensors to allow students to collect data from their experiments. PASCO® Scientific, a leader in 21st century science education, today announces a new solution to make quantitative forces and motions experiments for physics and physical science far easier and more affordable: the PASCO Smart Cart.
For all their anti-theft, fuel efficiency and satellite radio features, even the priciest new cars still travel on roads using decades-old traffic management technology.
“My diving bell becomes less oppressive, and my mind takes flight like a butterfly,” Jean-Dominique Bauby wrote in his agonizingly beautiful account of living with severe disabilities, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. Holding these contrasting images of physical submersion and mental liberation in your mind is a useful way to approach Dhruv Jain’s virtual reality project, Amphibian.
Ideally, homeowners want to be warned if a burglar sneaks onto their property, and farmers want to know if horses or sheep are no longer in the paddock or field they were left grazing in. Experimental physicists at Saarland University have developed a flexible security solution that can be used in gardens, driveways, business premises, or on grazing land and in woodland.
Northrop Grumman Corporation has been selected by the Microsystems Technology Office of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop a next-generation navigation-grade inertial measurement unit (IMU) based on advanced microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology. The IMU is expected to enable navigation by sensing acceleration and angular motion, providing data outputs used by vehicle control systems for guidance.
The GPS signal used for 'sat-navs' could help improve understanding of ocean currents, according to new research published in Geophysical Research Letters by National Oceanography Centre (NOC) scientists, alongside colleagues from the University of Michigan and Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
IBM and KONE, one of the global leaders in the elevator and escalator industry, today announced a multiyear agreement in which IBM will provide cloud-based Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and services to drive innovation in smart buildings.
