Today, people have become used to their smartphones and smartwatches sensing what their bodies are doing, be it driving, walking, or sleeping. But, what about a person’s hands? It emerges that smartwatches, with a few modifications, can detect an astonishing number of things one’s hands are doing.
Scientists at North Carolina State (NC State) University have spotted design defects in “smart home” Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices that enable third parties to stop devices from sharing information. The defects can be used to stop security systems from signaling that there has been a burglary or uploading video of intruders.
A research on older women’s perception of technology led by Assistant Professor Blaine Reeder, PhD, and co-authored by Catherine Jankowski, PhD, at the University of Colorado College of Nursing found that more active older adult women like to personally use wearable sensors and purchase smart home sensors for their older parents.
A new and significantly enhanced version of an electronic tag, referred to as Marine Skin, used for tracking marine animals could transform man’s ability to scrutinize sea life and its natural habitat, say KAUST scientists.
A new room-temperature liquid metal-based super-stretchable sensor developed by researchers offers a number of benefits—it is cost-effective, enables facile fabrication, has high repeatability and excellent stretchability, and comes with a high gauge factor (GF) of 4.95.
PNI Sensor, the world’s foremost expert in precision location, motion tracking, and fusion of sensor systems into real-world applications, today announced a new addition to the PlacePod high-accuracy smart parking sensor family: the PlacePod Vehicle Counting (VC) sensor.
The burgeoning growth of 3D printing has made it possible to 3D print an individual’s own prosthetic from models available from open-source databases.
Scientists at Saarland University have developed an ultrathin flexible film that can function as a sensor for ground-breaking technologies.
Envisage a device that has the ability to withstand even the most extreme fires so that it can automatically alert others when a firefighter becomes immobilized on the job.
On a dark backroad, a motorist speeds toward the intersection. A little ahead, the stop sign blends with the night and within seconds a fatal crash takes place.
