6 Tech-Minded Search Engines For Parts, Data And More

Finding the right technical components for your product design and/or business can seem a bit challenging. You certainly want to hunt down the best price, highest rated, and in-stock component, as well as the tech data and info you need. The good news is that there are search engine platforms that do exactly this. Before, you may have did a Google search for the technical component you were looking for and spend countless hours clicking through individual websites. Not anymore.…

Unmanned Sailing Vehicle Tested for Data-Gathering Capabilities

Engineers are busy trying to automate some of the tasks the operators of off-highway vehicles perform, such as digging trenches and spraying agricultural fields with herbicides. At the same time, they are striving to improve the efficiency and performance of those vehicles, as well as their overall safety. Whether or not off-highway equipment (OHE) eventually becomes fully autonomous and “eliminates the cab,” however, remains an open question. OHE today can be programmed to perform certain functions, including the aforementioned trench…

Five Future Trends in Robot Deployment

As part of Machine Design’s 90th anniversary issue in January, we’ve asked industry experts to take a look at the present and future of technology and how it will impact the design and operation of manufacturing over the next decade. Q: What are the key technologies and strategies that A3 believe will impact manufacturing and logistics in the next decade? Bernstein: Our organization is focused in five areas: 1. Increased Use of Autonomous Mobile Robots Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) are…

Findings available to scientists studying both dementia and brain cancer — ScienceDaily

Although a link has been established between chronic inflammation and neurodegenerative diseases, there have been many open questions regarding how cellular senescence, a process whereby cells that stop dividing under stress spew out a mix of inflammatory proteins, affects these pathologies. Publishing in PLOS ONE, researchers at the Buck Institute report that senescence in astrocytes, the most abundant cell type in the brain, leads to damaging “excitotoxicity” in cortical neurons that are involved in memory. This research, led by research…

Announcing Built with Workers

Ever since its initial release, Cloudflare Workers has given JavaScript developers a platform to enable building high-performance applications with automatic scaling. As with any new technology, we know it can be a bit intimidating to get started. For one thing, running code on the edge is a paradigm shift—forcing us to rethink classic web architecture problems, or removing them altogether. For another, since you can build just about anything, it can be challenging to figure out what to build first.…

Delivering 5G Devices to Market Will Bank on OTA Testing

The biggest challenge in testing 5G devices, as opposed to 4G/LTE, is the reliance on active antenna arrays and high RF frequencies. These frequencies are far higher than what we have ever used before in a commercial communication system. Frequency range 1 (FR1), which will transmit most of the traditional cellular communications traffic, has been designated for 450 to 7125 MHz. Frequency range 2 (FR2) will employ millimeter-wave (mmWave) frequencies (24,250 to 52,600 MHz) to deliver short-range, high-data-rate transmission. Higher…

Ada and RISC-V Secure Nvidia’s Future

As the electronic systems in today’s cars become more sophisticated, it rapidly ramps up the number of sensors feeding mission-critical data into the electronic control unit (ECU). For drivers, it’s imperative to feel confident that the advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) hasn’t been compromised by something as seemingly benign as an auto-repair shop using non-authentic parts to repair the vehicle. Likewise, an OEM would want to mitigate liability in these situations and notify consumers if the system, and thus driver safety,…

Embedded AI Systems Benefit from Flashless MCUs

Use of artificial-intelligence (AI) techniques, based on machine learning and inference, is growing rapidly in embedded systems, including applications that employ image analysis, speech recognition, and predictive decision-making. However, AI workloads are notoriously compute- and performance-hungry, and the amount of storage required for AI data and code is far more than can be supported by the limited embedded memory in most MCUs. In addition, the processing performance of these AI applications competes with the need for lower power consumption. One…

From Saving Lives to Leveraging IoT—This Smart Hospital Does It All

At Maidstone Hospital, a leading hospital in the South East of England, providing general hospital and specialist complex care services to over 600,000 patients simply weren’t enough. Armed with an additional initiative to reduce its carbon footprint by 28% (by 2020 from a 2013 baseline) and cognizant on the importance and cost-saving potential of energy conservation, Maidstone set forth to drastically reduce its energy consumption. The first step in controlling its consumption involved measurement—a daunting task as the hospital is…
