The BHI260AB and BHA260AB are ultralow-power smart sensor hubs from Bosch Sensortec. Designed for always-on sensor applications in wearables, hearables, AR/VR devices and smartphones, the products integrate a powerful coprocessor to offload sensor processing from the main processor, which can reduce power consumption and extend battery life.
A drone to remotely detect people in crowds with infectious respiratory conditions such as COVID-19 is being developed by SA researchers in partnership with a Canadian tech company.
Researchers have developed a highly sensitive wearable pressure sensor that is capable of sensitive, precise and continuous measurement of physiological and physical signals.
Researchers have developed a micrometre-scale, low power consumption pressure sensor with potential applications in vacuum environments.
Scientists have created a system based on a crack-based sensor that is said to be so sensitive that it allows the wearer to detect the light brush of a feather.
Modern cars already feature a range of sophisticated systems, but the self-driving cars of the future will also have auditory capabilities.
Laird Connectivity's Sentrius BT510 sensor is a multisensor platform that combines temperature, open/closed, motion and impact sensing with Bluetooth 5 capabilities such as long-range (Coded PHY), security and Bluetooth Low Energy beaconing.
The PIR Click board, from Mikroe, is a pyroelectric sensor supporting human presence detection. The product is equipped with an onboard PL-N823-01 pyroelectric proximity infrared (PIR) sensor from KEMET Electronics, which enables human detection through glass or resin.
The new sensor could simplify the interplay between humans and machines, providing a seamless interactive platform for virtual and augmented reality scenarios.
Emerson's AMS Wireless Vibration Monitor is an easy-to-deploy vibration sensor that performs prescriptive analytics on vibration data using native software to automatically identify failure modes and prevent potential problems involving rotating assets.
Researchers have combined artificial skin with control algorithms, creating what is claimed to be the first autonomous humanoid robot with full-body artificial skin.
