  • A T-Shirt That Monitors Breathing Rate

    The T-shirt works without attaching wires, electrodes and sensors to the body, explains Younes Messaddeq, the professor who led the team that developed the technology.

  • Electronic Tattoos That Let You Control Your Mobile Device from...Your Knuckles

    Want to control music or lights all from the convenience of your…knuckle? Computer scientists from Saarland University and Google have developed a thin-film electronic tattoo to let you do just that. Similar to a child’s temporary tattoo, the sticker can adhere to parts of the body that weren’t always possible, such as bony structures.

  • Creating a Model for Mass Customization

    A new collaboration between Okuma Corporation and Hitachi, Ltd., is designed to establish a high-efficiency production model that supports mass customization via IoT.

  • Proportional Electronic Pressure Regulator for Low Power Applications

    ASCO’s 617 Series SentronicLP electronic pressure regulator offers accurate pneumatic pressure control in applications where power supply is limited. The valve only requires a 4-watt power supply offering a highly reliable and cost-effective solution for design and control engineers.

  • Smart Homes Need Smart Batteries

    As our homes get smarter, the systems powering our homes also need to become smarter. To work toward that goal, researchers from the Institute of Automation, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the School of Automation and Electrical Engineering at the University of Science and Technology Beijing are proposing a solution to optimize power consumption in batteries.

  • Video: Automated System Co-Pilots a Simulated Boeing 737

    The robotic co-pilot is designed to function as a second pilot in a two-crew aircraft, enabling reduced crew operations while ensuring mission success.

  • Exoskeleton Boosts Leg Capacity in Soldiers

    The suit assists in physically demanding tasks that require repetitive or continuous kneeling, squatting or lifting.

  • Battelle Launches Defense Tools at SOFIC

    Battelle plans to unveil its counter-UAS device, a large unmanned underwater vehicle, and other systems at the Tampa, FL, event.

  • Bathroom Scales That Tell You More Than Just Your Weight

    Wish your scale would tell you something other than your weight? A team of researchers at Kaunas University of Technology (KTU) Institute of Biomedical Engineering is developing a device to do just that: a scale that can monitor your health and alert you to potentially life-threatening conditions, such as arteriosclerosis or cardiac arrhythmia.

  • Biomimetic Robot Swims with the Fishes, Tracks Water Quality

    The robotic fish provides real-time, on-site monitoring of water quality in fish farms.

  • Biosensor Monitors, Regulates Bloodstream Drug Levels

    A drug delivery tool promises to provide accurate dosing of life-saving agents.

  • EROWA CleverClamp One-off and Small Batch Clamping System

    EROWA has introduced the CleverClamp, a new clamping solution for the production of one-offs and small series.

  • Stopping Sinkholes in their Tracks

    Fujitsu AI technology is being utilized to process huge amounts of radar probe data showing the location of potential sinkholes.

  • What are Ultrasonic Flaw Detectors?

    How do ultrasonic flaw detectors work and why do we test for flaws in materials? Ultrasonic testing is akin to the sonar methods developed in World War II and the Cold War to detect enemy submarines in the ocean. A submarine below the surface could be a considered a void or flaw. Pings from sonobuoys with radio beacons and later underwater transducers were used to detect and target enemy submarines. Ultrasonic flaw detectors detect hidden voids, inclusions or cracks beneath the surface of a material, which make them a powerful tool in assuring the integrity of critical parts, products and structures.

  • Finding Forest: Global Forest Cover Increases by 10%

    An area of previously unreported forest equivalent to 60 percent of the size of Australia has been identified by an international research team.

  • Primitive Atmosphere Found Around 'Warm Neptune'

    A new study challenges some long-held assumptions about planetary formation.

  • Engineering Empathy in Health Professionals

    Interaction with virtual humans can improve the communication skills of healthcare professionals.

  • How Tracking the International Space Station Works

    Visible at certain times with the naked eye, the International Space Station's precise orbital path can be predicted and tracked using a combination of simplified perturbation orbital models and two-line element set data from NORAD.

  • Haptics Technology: The Story of Touch

    We have created electronic devices that can engage the human senses of hearing and vision. Smell, taste and touch have been neglected for lack of technology methods to allow these devices to interact with these senses. Recently, however, the electronic world has been developing devices and methods to interface the user and the connected device so they can produce tactile feedback and kinematic feedback to the user through the sense of touch by applying forces, vibrations and motion to the users.

  • Video: Aerial Scarecrow Improves Aviation Safety

    A drone disguised as a predatory falcon may help keep birds away from Edmonton International Airport.
