The human hand exhibits a dexterity yet unmatched by technology. Force sensors can close this gap by offering feedback on the grip force, thus avoiding damage to delicate and fragile objects such as food and human body.
Single-use diagnostic tests often aren't practical for health professionals or patients in resource-limited areas, where cost and waste disposal are big concerns.
Medical sensing technology has taken great strides in recent years, with the development of wearable devices that can track pulse, brain function, biomarkers in sweat and more.
The ability to gain control over the structure of fragmented electrodes made of carbon nanotubes could enable enhanced wireless monitoring of the strain on materials in a broad array of applications.
Superior Sensor Technology today introduced a new dual low-pressure sensor product series for continuous PAP (CPAP), bi-level PAP (BiPAP), and automatic PAP (APAP) products used for sleep apnea and other breathing sleep ...
The world is heading towards a trillion-sensor economy where billions of devices using multiple sensors will be connected under the umbrella of Internet-of-things.
Since ancient times, opals have been considered precious gemstones due to their iridescent colors. The shimmering effect of these stones is due to their nanostructures.
Optical Surfaces Ltd is a leading manufacturer of high precision hyperbolic mirrors that are used in satellite-based telescopes to collect and focus light enabling high-resolution remote observation in applications including agriculture, water resources, urban planning, rural development, mineral prospecting, environment, forestry and disaster management.
A progressive UK-based start-up, Zero Point Motion, is currently developing innovative high-performance sensors for navigation and precise positioning applications. Founded by Dr. Ying Lia Li in 2020, the early-stage start-up has set out to develop cost-effective chip-scale optical sensors that can be mass-produced.
A smartphone sensor similar to the one applied in GPS systems could have the potential to determine intoxication in people, following marijuana consumption.
Over the years, cleaning robots have evolved from disc-shaped vacuum cleaners found in homes to advanced models that can navigate complex spaces like airports and train stations.
Due to the trend of miniaturization of devices, micromanipulation has been a hot topic in the last two decades.
A new sensor can detect not only whether a virus is present, but whether it's infectious – an important distinction for containing viral spread.
With the introduction of uEye XCP, uEye XLE, and Ensenso S, camera specialist IDS proves that industrial-grade image processing technology does not have to be expensive. New helpful tools, such as attention maps, illustrate how the camera AI works and makes decisions.
A group of biotechnologists and engineers from the University of Freiburg demonstrated for the first time that it is possible to determine the concentration of antibiotics in the body of mammals using breath samples.
