Wearable devices can give away your passwords, according to new research.
The Internet of Things promises to improve our lives by connecting sensors in the objects that surround us - buildings, appliances, gadgets, and vehicles - and the data that they collect. But to realize that potential, programmers need tools that make it easier to create applications that combine devices and the cloud. With the support of the National Science Foundation (NSF), researcher Stacy Patterson is building those tools and developing a framework that developers can use to easily perform data analytics over a multitude of devices.
HBM, Inc., a leading manufacturer of data acquisition systems, analysis and calibration software, strain gauges, transducers and sensors, has added three more module options for its rugged SomatXR data acquisition system, extending the range of applications and bringing the number of modules to eight.
Delta-T Devices Ltd has launched DeltaLINK-Cloud – a powerful free online service for use with Delta-T data loggers. It offers secure cloud-based connectivity, data management, and automatic data retrieval. Users can easily upload, store, view, and share their data.
Invertebrates, such as squid and jellyfish, play a crucial role in the marine food web and are also vital commercial fisheries. Despite their importance, little is known about their natural behaviors or how their environment influences those behaviors or physiology.
The killing of the lion Cecil in a national park in Zimbabwe by a big-game hunter has sparked worldwide outrage. Researchers at the University of Oxford had outfitted Cecil with a GPS collar to monitor his behaviour. It was only thanks to this special tag that the cause of the animal's death was cleared up.
The Jefferson Project at Lake George, one of the most ambitious research projects to deploy Big Data and analytics technology to manage and protect a body of fresh water, is entering a new phase in which enormous amounts of data will be captured from sensors and analyzed. Scientists anticipate that insights uncovered from the data collection and discovery stage of the project will not only help manage and protect one of America’s most famous lakes, but create a blueprint to preserve important lakes, rivers and other bodies of fresh water around the globe.
SnapOne, Inc., the leader in "life security" applications development for creating people, data and device security and safety monitoring solutions, today announced the release of its Life Security Action Engine (LSAE) Impact Detection prototype.
Yes, it is possible to study parrots with GPS trackers--you just have to make them beak-proof. For a new paper in The Auk: Ornithological Advances, Erin Kennedy, George Perry, and Todd Dennis of the University of Auckland and Joshua Kemp and Corey Mosen of New Zealand's Department of Conservation tested the feasibility of tracking parrots with GPS dataloggers in Arthur's Pass National Park in New Zealand. Their parrot of choice was the Kea (Nestor notabilis), a large, intelligent, mountain-dwelling bird perhaps best known for its fearless interactions with tourists and their cars.
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Optical Sensors Market Analysis and Forecast (2013 - 2018): Types (Position, Ambient Light, Motion, Proximity, Image); Verticals (Industrial, Automotive, Defense, Commercial)" report to their offering.
