Wearable clip tells parents, coach about head impact
Research paves way for development of cyborg moth 'biobots'
North Carolina State University researchers have developed methods for electronically manipulating the flight muscles of moths and for monitoring the electrical signals moths use to control those muscles. ...
Graphene rubber bands could stretch limits of current healthcare
New research published today in the journal ACS Nano identifies a new type of sensor that can monitor body movements and could help revolutionise healthcare.
Nanoscience makes your wine better
One sip of a perfectly poured glass of wine leads to an explosion of flavours in your mouth. Researchers at Aarhus University, Denmark, have now developed a nanosensor that can mimic what happens in your ...
Technique enables improved sensing of toxic mercury compounds and pesticides
Fluorescence-based detection of pesticides and other environmentally harmful chemicals is limited by the ability of current methods to reliably and selectively sense specific chemical species. A*STAR researchers ...
Study demonstrates wearable sensors to detect firearm use
A new study from the University of Pennsylvania demonstrates that wearable sensors could one day transform the correctional system by tracking gun use by community-based offenders, who account for a disproportionate share ...
Scientists get set for simulated nuclear inspection
Some 40 scientists and technicians from around the world will descend on Jordan in November to take part in a simulated on-site inspection of a suspected nuclear test site on the banks of the Dead Sea.
Team launches world's first ZigBee-based inter-satellite communication system
Engineers at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore have successfully piloted the world's first ZigBee-based inter-satellite communication system.
Quasi-distributed temperature sensors from draw-tower fabrication technology
Maturing draw-tower fabrication technology for optical fibre gratings has been used to produce quasi-distributed temperature sensors that could extend the use of RFTA in cancer treatment.
Ultra-compact implantable image sensor using body channel communication
An ultra-compact implantable image sensor using body channel communication has been demonstrated in Japan. The body channel approach allows the sensor-transmitter device to be much smaller and use less power ...
Augmented reality helps in industrial troubleshooting
At a "smart" factory, machines reveal a number of data about themselves. Sensors measuring temperature, rotating speed or vibrations provide valuable information on the state of a machine. On this basis, ...
