Skin-inspired Sensing: Sweden’s Linköping University Associate Professor Discusses Medical & Robotics Applications
Magnus Jonsson, associate professor at Sweden’s Linköping University, has led a research team in the development of a pyroelectricity and thermoelectricity-based sensor, whose pressure and temperature monitoring capabilities are modelled on human skin itself.
What’s the Difference Between Plumbene, Silicene, and Graphene?
Graphene is a two-dimensional lattice of carbon atoms. Silicene, on the other hand, is the thinnest possible 2D form of silicon, and plumbene is a 2D lattice of lead atoms. These two-dimensional materials have researchers scrambling to understand them better, and they have superlative traits that could have drastic implications for the future of physics and engineering.
London Tech Week Inspires IoT and AI Development Discussions from International Industry Leaders
Outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May launched the sixth annual London Tech Week earlier this month. Operated by Informa Tech, London Tech Week brings together some of the biggest tech names from around the world.
Hybrid-Electric Aircraft Advance Aviation Industry Standards
Just like electric vehicles, the idea of designing electric-powered aircraft has been with us for decades. However, unlike EVs, its development and commercialisation have been much slower: technical issues, production costs, and safety issues multiply exponentially when it comes to vehicles that take to the skies.
Intel Says that EUV is Ready but Problematic for Engineers
In a recent interview, Brett Turkot, director of EUV at Intel, went on record to say that their EUV lithography is ready for introduction, however, engineers will still face several challenges in using the system to make these leading chips at a high volume.
WWDC 2019 Roundup: Exciting New Tools for Developers and Engineers
On June 3rd, Tim Cook and company took to the stage during Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference. The Apple WWDC typically showcases upcoming software updates, though Apple does occasionally unveil new hardware. This year was no different.
The Leading Developments in Next Generation Batteries
Batteries are the subtle powerhouses behind modern electronics. They function essentially to provide startup currents to varying loads and store charges to provide reserve power for portable or grid-scale operation. Lithium-ion batteries, which are the predominant type, pose a number of issues for devices including overheating, limited charge/discharge cycles, and safety concerns.
Preparing for 1 Trillion IoT Devices: Arm’s Neoverse N1 Platform
The use of datacentre-based data processing has become unsustainable due to the rise in connected and intelligent devices. As a result, Arm have partnered with Docker to introduce their latest CPU cores and overall edge-to-cloud infrastructure platform: Neoverse N1.
