HALO, a HD video processing and enhancement system from RFEL, provides next-generation, low-power, real-time video processing for image-based surveillance, which is a critical capability for counterterrorism, defence and security.
Panasonic Australia has expanded its security range with three new cameras developed specifically with a full spectrum of demanding security and surveillance applications in mind.
The TURCK Q80WD non-flush inductive proximity switch detects all metals with 75 mm switching distance. The sensor can be mounted, partially embedded or fully flush - its switching sensitivity adjusts itself to the mounting conditions.
The infrared (IRED) Oslon black SFH 4716S from Osram Opto Semiconductors, with an optical output of 1030 mW and a beam angle of 150°, is suitable for gesture detection systems linked to computer games or for optical safety systems in the automotive sector.
University of Canterbury researchers have designed a new miniature electronic triathlon tracking device to be worn by athletes and broadcast live to smartphone apps.
NIZO food research, an independent research centre in Europe, and the electronic oral drug delivery company Medimetrics have joined forces by developing a technology to sample from the small intestine in a non-invasive way - using the latest microelectronics.
Customised sensors monitor and control the robotic drilling arm that is boring into the Martian surface.
Touch technology innovator Peratech is working with the London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London to develop wearable electronics that use the company’s award-winning QTC sensors.
Sensors used in harsh conditions, such as deep-sea oil wells, must withstand extreme temperatures and pressures for hundreds of hours without failing. Researchers have investigated two metal alloys that could give microelectromechanical system (MEMS) sensors better protection in the toughest environments.
Until recently, ‘wearable robots’ were the stuff of science fiction. In the last 10 years, however, advances in robotics, microelectronics, battery and electric motor technologies have advanced to the point where it has become practical to develop exoskeletons to aid people with disabilities.
The Ircon 7V series of infrared sensors has been added to the Modline 7 infrared thermometers. The new models provide solutions for the semiconductor industry and are one of eight in a series launched by Ircon earlier this year.
Sensors and other electronics are usually made of rigid and stiff material such as metals and plastics - they cannot be stretched, twisted or thrown and should be handled with care. But that is about to change with the advent of stretchable electronics.
