Researchers develop smart, ultra-thin microfibre sensor for real-time healthcare monitoring and diagnosis

A research team led by Professor Lim Chwee Teck (standing) from the Department of Biomedical Engineering at NUS Faculty of Engineering has developed a soft, flexible and stretchable microfibre sensor for real-time healthcare monitoring and diagnosis. The sensor can measure pulse waveform in real-time, and the information can be used to determine one’s heart rate, blood pressure and stiffness in blood vessels.

High-performance OLED microdisplays for next-generation smart glasses

Credit: Uwe Vogel A consistent trend across the tech sector is the one-upmanship of increasingly high screen resolution and larger display size. Yet, the fact that the former increases faster than the latter means that manufacturers must achieve ever-higher pixel density. Large OLED microdisplays developed under the LOMID project could help solve that problem, thereby providing Europe with a competitive edge. They are increasingly considered as a must-have for near-eye applications such as virtual reality glasses: within the next few…

Credit: University of Bristol Multiband tunable antennas are a critical part of many communication and radar systems. New research by engineers at the University of Bristol has shown significant advances in antennas by using optically induced plasmas in silicon to tune both radiation patterns and operation frequency. Conventional antenna tuning is performed with diodes or Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) switches. However, these approaches have significant drawbacks as…

Open/R: Open routing for modern networks | Engineering Blog | Facebook Code

We are open-sourcing Open/R, an extensible network routing platform that enables rapid innovation in network functions and applications. Open/R is being used in Facebook’s backbone and data center networks. The platform supports different network topologies (such as WANs, data center fabrics, and wireless meshes) as well as multiple underlying hardware and software systems (FBOSS, Arista EOS, Juniper JunOS, Linux routing, etc.). Open/R provides a platform to disseminate state across the network and allows new applications to be built on top…

Dropbox Paper: Emojis and Exformation

Communication is hard 😖 (it’s ok, little buddy, we’re gonna talk about some tools to combat this). When it comes to conveying a message with other human beings you have to make sure to speak clearly, listen well, use unambiguous words, remember what the other person said, understand the context surrounding the conversation, read between the lines sometimes, pay attention to body language and intonation, comprehend cross-cultural differences, and so many more subtle intricacies. Now compound that problem with trying…
