Tiny laser sensor heightens bomb detection sensitivity
New technology under development at the University of California, Berkeley, could soon give bomb-sniffing dogs some serious competition.
Oulu team explores magnetic communication for smartphones
A charging solution for delivery drones: Take after our feathered friends?
Amazon's plan to unleash a wave of "delivery drones" has occasionally been criticized as a pie-in-the-sky idea (literally, if they start shipping baked goods).
Researchers mimic insect ocelli to build light sensor to control fly-sized drone
Sony inspired by biomimicry develops curved CMOS sensors
Think fast, robot: Algorithm that harnesses data from new sensor could make autonomous robots more nimble
One of the reasons we don't yet have self-driving cars and mini-helicopters delivering online purchases is that autonomous vehicles tend not to perform well under pressure. A system that can flawlessly parallel park at 5 ...
Pair of seismologists publicly wonder if it might be possible to predict largest earthquakes
New theory could reduce number of sensors required for terahertz imaging systems
Terahertz imaging, which is already familiar from airport security checkpoints, has a number of other promising applications—from explosives detection to collision avoidance in cars. Like sonar or radar, ...
Research shows smartphone sensors leave trackable fingerprints
Fingerprints—those swirling residues left on keyboards and doorknobs—are mostly invisible. They can affirm your onetime presence, but they cannot be used to track your day-to-day activities.
