This LiDAR is based on nanophotonics for a more compact, cost-effective device. Nanophotonics has several beneficial technologies, like a phase-change material based beam scanning technique. (Photo via POSTECH)   LiDAR technology, or Light Detection and Ranging, is a remote sensing method that collects the depth information of an object by emitting a laser beam onto the object and measures the time of its return. These sensors are gaining more popularity for displays, such as autonomous ve ...
Introduction  I am continuing my series on insulation testers by looking at some of the options at the lower end of the price scale. On this occasion, it is the PM5203 from Peakmeter. Previous insulation testers reviewed are;   Keysight Insulation Multimeter Failure Megger MIT420/2 Road Test Chauvin Arnoux CA6526 Insulation Tester Review Flir IM75 Insulation Tester Review Extech MG302 Insulation Tester Review Di-LOG DL9307 Insulation Tester Review RS Pro RS-9985 Insulation Tester Revi ...
(Image Credit: Louis Reed/Unsplash) To treat her leukemia, six-year-old Emily Whitehead underwent chemotherapy for 16 months, showing no signs of improvement while exhausting alternative treatments. The University of Pennsylvania ended up enrolling Emily in a clinical trial focused on reprogramming her immune cells to eliminate cancer.  With outstanding results, Emily survived and is now a 100% healthy teenager. Her recovery process benefited from using  CAR-T (Chimeric Antigen Recep ...
Tec-Innovation’s intelligent shoes have sensors to let the wearer know if there are obstacles in their path. (Image Credit: Lunghammer/TU Graz) Tec-Innovation, an Austrian startup, developed an intelligent shoe called InnoMake, suitable for blind and visually impaired people. It guides the wearer in the right direction and uses ultrasonic sensors to warn them when obstacles obstruct their path, increasing their safety while walking. The shoe could provide more capabilities with integrate ...
Schematic diagram showing where the MTA device is implemented in a rat. (Image Credit: Zifang Zhao and Claudia Cea/Columbia Engineering)   Responsive neurostimulation is becoming effective at studying neural circuit function and treating epilepsy and Parkison's disease. However, designing an implantable and biocompatible device that performs those interventions comes with significant restrictions. The resolution needs to be higher, and most contain large, bulky components, making it diffic ...
This project shows you how to decode Manchester codes using the Logic Analyzer instrument Digilent Digital Discovery.   Digilent Digital Discovery™ is a combined logic analyzer, protocol analyzer, and pattern generator instrument that was created to be the ultimate embedded development companion compatible with a wide variety of digital systems. Digital Discovery was designed to optimize channels, speed, and portability. Allows you to debug, visualize, and simulate digital signals fo ...
The International team used the Muon g-2 ring at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory to measure muon’s wobble as they move through an intense magnetic field. It operates at -450°F. (Image Credit: Fermilab)   Mark Hamill tweeted that scientists may have uncovered the key to the force. Over 200 experimenters at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory took a new measurement of the muon that defies the laws of physics. The Muon g-2 experiment observes muons to determine how ...
