    The VEGAPULS 64 is the first radar level sensor for liquids that operates at 80 GHz. It is currently available from Vega, a German instrument maker. Previous generations of sensor, working at 26 GHz, could not be used in difficult industrial environments. Tripling the emission frequency gives the VEGAPULS 64 a beam...

    What if engineers could predict when maintenance should be performed on machinery and equipment? Modeling data collected by new sensors inside machines and engines now enable predictive maintenance (PdM). The end-game is maximum efficiency and the complete automation of business decisions.   First Steps: Data...

    Last month, robotics manufacturer Boston Dynamics presented its new Atlas series humanoid robot via video. At 1.80 m tall and 82 kg, this robot is able to perform human tasks. It can walk in the snow, pick up boxes and put them on shelves. Its agility enables it to avoid falling. The machine’s legs are equipped with...

    This is where technology meets ecology. Responding to a call from Australian scientists to save the bees from extinction, Intel miniaturized their Edison technology to create a micro RFID chip specifically designed for these insects. The size of a stamp and weighing just 5.4 mg, the tiny sensor is attached to the...

    French company Photonis designed Kameleon, a low-light camera that can see in color, even at night. So far, night vision cameras only allowed monochrome and shadeless images, from black to green or red. This technical prowess lies in a new ultra-sensitive CMOS sensor able to detect the smallest light particles even in...
