Allowing people to break away from monotony and make their own choices is known to increase engagement and motivation. A similar principle can be applied to machines.
A high-throughput computational method developed at UC San Diego has generated 13 new material candidates for solar cells and 23 new candidates for LEDs.
As data science continues to grow and evolve, new challenges are cropping up that companies must address as they move projects forward.
A new quantum computer program can detect the presence of 'leakage', where information being processed by a quantum computer escapes from the states of 0 and 1.
While nanotechnology is not everybody's first thought when they think of the IoT, there are ways in which nanotechnology is helping to propel this area of data optimisation.
What data scientists and engineers need to know when working with big data as they move from 'conceptualisation' to 'operationalisation' of their designs.
Every machine with moving parts suffers some wear and tear and will inevitably need to be serviced or have some parts replaced. The question is, when is the best time to do this?
The Smart Klaus Industry 4.0 workplace takes advantage of data by reflecting it to workers in a lean process. It is based around a four-step principle — guidance, verify, confirm, document — that divides even complex work processes into clear and structured sub-processes.
NI has announced FlexLogger configuration-based data-logging software for validation testing. With intuitive workflows and integrated data management, the software helps automotive test departments quickly capture well-documented data to verify system functionality in real-world conditions and comply with strict government regulations.
The ST Voltage Regulator Finder app helps engineers, purchasers, students or makers find and purchase STMicroelectronics' voltage regulators, precision voltage references or DC/DC converters, quickly and easily from a smartphone or tablet.
Dewesoft X3 data acquisition software is easy to use but loaded with functionality. It is now available in a 64-bit version, allowing users to take full advantage of the resources that are physically available in modern computers.
The latest version of Valor MSS Process Preparation is an electronics manufacturing system with extra scope and functionality. The latest release includes a powerful Panelisation Manager that offers users the ability to create re-usable templates for panel generation and takes out the labour of hand-drawing panel layout mark-ups used to guide PCB suppliers.
DAQExpress is NI's DAQ companion software. Its features will help reduce the time users spend setting up their system and analysing collected data.
The Microchip motorBench Development Suite motor control software plug-in has autotuning and self-commissioning capability.
STMicroelectronics has released its MCU Finder for PC, enabling embedded developers to access essential STM32 32-bit ARM Cortex-M and STM8 8-bit MCU (microcontroller) information conveniently from the same desktop environment used for application development.
