Researchers at the University of California San Diego have developed soft devices containing algae that glow in the dark when experiencing mechanical stress, such as being squished, stretched, twisted or bent. The devices do not require any electronics to light up, making them an ideal choice for building soft robots that explore the deep sea and other dark environments, researchers said.
NETZSCH Process Intelligence, a corporate venture of NETZSCH Group (Germany), has announced the launch of sensXPERT, a technology business designed to deliver significant productivity and quality benefits to processors in the plastics industry through data-driven manufacturing solutions.
AAEON, an industry leading developer of edge computing platforms, is happy to announce that it has joined the Azure Certified Device program, ensuring customers get IoT solutions up and running quickly with hardware and software that has been pre-tested and verified to work with Azure IoT.
A new structure has been created for the cathode’s micro-sized particles, leading to safer and longer-lasting batteries capable of working at high voltage and power vehicles to cover greater driving distances.
Today, cameras are often more than just suppliers of images – they can recognise objects, generate results or trigger follow-up processes. Visitors to VISION Stuttgart, Germany, can find out about the possibilities offered by state-of-the-art camera technology at IDS booth 8C60.
FLEX PRO™ is designed as a multi-functional tool able to acquire micro-scale images and spectra from the deep UV to the NIR. Recently redesigned, it is capable of transmission, reflectance, fluorescence, Raman microspectroscopy as well as a host of other features. As such, FLEX PRO™ is a powerful addition to the laboratory.
In an article recently published in the journal Carbohydrate Polymers, researchers discussed the development of self-powered, high-performance strain sensors using carboxymethyl cellulose-assisted polyaniline and conductive hydrogels.
The new IDTechEx report, “Heavy-Duty Autonomous Vehicles 2023-2043: Trucks, Buses & Roboshuttles”, has found significant activity in the autonomous heavy-duty and commercial vehicle space.
In a paper recently published in the journal ACS Applied Engineering Materials, researchers introduced a scalable and simple technique for converting polypropylene (PP) surgical mask wastes into carbon fibers doped with sulfur that can show high sorption capacity for carbon dioxide (CO2) and selectivity against N2.
The question of how particle size influences the quality of aggregates and asphalt is the focus of a new paper in the journal Construction and Building Materials. Scientists from the University of Arkansas’s Department of Civil Engineering have conducted the research.
