Predictive maintenance is outgrowing industrial applications to transform consumer products in part because our products make this new field more accessible and cost-effective.
An Australian company is rolling out wireless technology that allows buildings to monitor themselves and report problems autonomously — and even talk to your smartphone.
The new technology, which takes the form of a smart ear tag, produces similar data to that delivered by consumer smart watches.
Researchers have invented a 'battery-less' wake-up timer that is claimed to cut the power consumption of rarely active IoT sensor nodes by 1000 times.
Dialog Semiconductor's SmartBond Multi-Sensor Kit is a complete multisensor node solution that enables engineers to develop multiple applications on the same hardware and support different use cases through firmware.
The DextrES haptic glove enables users to touch, grasp and manipulate virtual objects while feeling like they are actually touching something in the real world.
STMicroelectronics' FingerTip touchscreen controller (TSC) is powering all three of the latest Xiaomi Mi8 smartphone models — Standard, SE and Explorer.
Inspired by human skin, researchers have constructed a tactile sensor that detects pressure and pulses, replicating the experience of pressurised human touch.
Dytran Instruments has introduced the model 3525A3 single-axis IEPE hermetically sealed quartz accelerometer with a built-in impedance converting amplifier, capable of operating continuously at high temperatures up to 200°C.
Dytran Instruments has introduced the Model 3168D2 single-axis IEPE quartz accelerometer for health and usage monitoring systems (HUMS) and flight test applications. Featuring a thru-hole design for 360° cable orientation, the sensor has mechanical and electrical filters that effectively eliminate ultrahigh-frequency energy that can cause signal saturation.
Fabric coated with the sensing technology could be used in future 'smart garments', with the sensors slipped into the soles of shoes or stitched into clothing.
Researchers have developed a low-cost sensor made from semiconducting plastic that can be used to diagnose or monitor a wide range of health conditions.
A newly developed sensor can be taught different scents, sniffing out potential hazards — such as smouldering cables or spoilt food — earlier than a human being.
Low-power applications take advantage of MEMS accelerometer sensors for increasing battery life.
VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has invented a robot car that is claimed to see better than humans in foggy conditions and can navigate without stopping.
