Walls are basically just big, dull dividers. But with a few coats of conductive paint and some electronics, however, walls can be transformed into smart infrastructure that senses human touch, and recognizes things like gestures and when appliances are utilized.
A method to boost the efficiency of wireless power transfer over long distances has been suggested by an international research team including scientists. This method has been tested with numerical simulations and experiments.
Scientists at WMG at the University of Warwick have discovered that Lithium-ion batteries can be safely charged up to five times faster than the present recommended maximum charging limits. This was revealed by their newly developed direct, precise test of the internal temperatures and the electrodes potentials of the Lithium-ion batteries.
TU Wien has succeeded in developing a sensor for measuring the strength of electric fields, which is much simpler, smaller and less prone to distortion.
Ultrathin electronic magnetic sensor that can be worn. By interacting with magnetic fields, it enables touchless control of virtual and physical objects.
With a clear focus on reducing costs and improving efficiency ABB has introduced an energy meter range that satisfies the requirements of 690 V motors and other applications in the same voltage range.
Molecular electronics is a developing research area where scientists learn about electrical properties of the molecules with a chemically programmed function. Molecules are capable of functioning as switches, diodes and transistors, all with a distinctive length of few nanometers.
Indoor omnidirectional dome-shaped antennas ideal for cell phone signal boosters normally stand out because of their vertical height, but the new low profile ceiling antenna mergers in more effortlessly since it is flat. This feature makes it perfect for use by any integrator or installer as they attempt to carry out unobtrusive installations indoors.
Electrical physicists from Czech Technical University have provided more evidence that new current sensors create errors when assessing current via iron conductors.
This summer, a research team headed by Professor Mike Fraser, Asier Marzo and Jess McIntosh from the Bristol Interaction Group (BIG) at the University of Bristol, along with University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust (UH Bristol), presented their paper at one of the world’s most renowned conferences on human-computer interfaces, ACM CHI 2017 held in Denver, USA.
