Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have demonstrated how low-cost, wearable inertial sensors could detect firearm usage.
Macro Sensors HSIR Series LVDT linear position transmitters are suitable for serving as level sensors to measure liquid level changes from a few centimetres to several metres in gauging tank level volumes.
Researchers have developed a flexible, wearable polymer sensor that can directly measure the degree and occurrence of goose bumps, technically known as piloerection, on the skin.
Vishay Semiconductors' VCNL4020X01 is a proximity and ambient light optical sensor with an operating temperature range to 105°C. The product combines an IR emitter, a photo-pin-diode for proximity, an ambient light detector, a signal processing IC and a 16-bit ADC.
The GoalControl-4D system is equipped with 14 high-speed cameras located around the pitch, with seven cameras focusing on each goalmouth. Using a special detection software, the ball is filtered out from the image sequences and its real-time position is automatically calculated as X, Y and Z coordinates as well as speed, making it 4D.
Intel has announced a range of solutions and initiatives for the connected car of the future.
Freescale Semiconductor has teamed up with Neusoft Corporation and Green Hills Software to create next-generation automotive vision applications.
A new technique developed by MIT researchers is said to reduce the number of sensors required for terahertz or millimetre-wave imaging by a factor of 10, or even 100. The technique could also have implications for the design of new, high-resolution radar and sonar systems.
Claimed to require just one-sixth of the board space taken up by other sensors, the Infineon TLI4970 current sensor measures alternating and direct currents up to ±50 A. The digital sensor does not require external calibration.
Around 2-5% of all international trade involves counterfeit products, according to a 2013 UN report. Counterfeit products - including electronics, automotive and aircraft parts, pharmaceuticals and food - can pose safety risks and cost governments and private companies hundreds of billions of dollars annually.
The Microchip EMC1043 family of System Management Bus (SMBus) temperature sensors monitors three temperature zones - one internal diode and two externally connected diodes - for PC and embedded environments.
Researchers are developing sensors that can detect the early onset of swelling and temperature changes in the brain after head injuries and then vanish when they're no longer needed.
University of Washington computer scientists have built a low-cost gesture recognition system that runs without batteries and lets users control their electronic devices hidden from sight with simple hand movements.
