Researchers have developed a way to equip robots with an exceptional sense of touch, as well as the ability to process sensory information quickly and intelligently.
Developers can quickly and easily design sensors into places where they never used to fit with the MAXM86146 dual-photodetector optical sensor solution, from Maxim Integrated Products.
Every two minutes there is an accident caused by wildlife on German roads, at a cost to the insurance industry of more than €600 million in 2015 alone.
Renesas Electronics has announced a precision temperature sensor, the TS5111, targeting DDR5 memory modules as well as a host of other applications such as solid-state disks (SSDs), computing motherboards and communications equipment that require real-time temperature monitoring.
There are two types of sensors most commonly used in industrial automation applications: photoelectric and inductive (proximity).
Dytran Instruments has introduced Model 3683C — a charge mode, triaxial, case-isolated accelerometer that operates at up 538°C and can survive temperature excursions up to 593°C.
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.
