Will Micromobility Ever Become Fully Popularised in Europe’s Cities?
Micromobility is technically illegal on some of Europe’s streets, but its increasing public demand and eco-friendliness suggest that it should be pushed forward. We look at some of the many companies that are helping to bolster electric micro vehicle uptake, and ask: could it ever be considered as practical as driving a car?
Various Sensors and Their Applications for Smart Farming and Robotics
Smart farming is a form of agriculture that is informed by robotics and smart sensors, whose data acquisition capabilities enable them to feed crops with precisely what they need to ease the farmer’s job of cultivation. We look at the various sensor technologies required for modern, IoT-based agriculture.
COVID-19 is Driving Engineers to Further Develop Smart Technologies
As many continue to self isolate to combat COVID-19, we are seeing a continued drive for the need for advanced and remote systems that support our new way of life. Accordingly, engineers have been developing smart technologies to expedite the possibility of an autonomous and contactless world.
Combining 3D Printing, Robotics, and Other Innovation in Smart Building Construction
Additive manufacturing, already an innovative electrical design approach, is now crossing over to the field of construction—making it possible to manufacture 3D-printed buildings. Now, the next step for electrical engineers (EEs) is becoming clear: the development of embedded devices for the robotics-based construction of 3D-printed automated smart homes.
IP-Core Start-Up AccelerComm Secures a Series A Fund of £5.8M for Its 5G Operations
In a round led by IQ Capital—alongside Bloc Ventures and the IP Group—UK-based semiconductor IP-Core (intellectual property-core) company AccelerComm has raised £5.8 million in Series A funding for its 5G research and development.
An Overview of Neuromorphic Computing and Its Latest Advances
Realising brain-like synapses using artificial intelligence has, for several decades, been a dream of scientists all over the world. Although we don’t have human-level AI yet, humans have made significant strides in the design of innovative technologies for neuromorphic computing. This article delves into some of the most promising innovations in this field.
Advanced Preventive Maintenance of Pumps Using IIoT-Based Online Continuous Monitoring
Pumps are critical to countless industrial operations, and massive production losses can be prevented by their timely maintenance. On top of this, maintenance practices themselves have evolved over the years. We look at how, using the IIoT (industrial internet of things) for online continuous monitoring of pumps, preventive maintenance can altogether be enhanced.
Machine Learning Company Insitro Raises $143 Million to Bridge Biology and AI
Insitro is a pharmaceutical company that follows a data-driven development approach towards drug development. The company uses machine learning and artificial intelligence-based approaches to derive more throughput in drug manufacturing.
The Development of a New Moldable Nanomaterial Could Bring Thinner and Cheaper VR and AR Devices
Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are no longer exclusive to video gaming. Although the early development of these technologies focused on this industry, VR and AR are now used for a broad range of other applications and use cases such as education, virtual conferences, and fashion.
CTO Chris Rutherglen from Carbonics Inc. Discusses the Use of Carbon Nanotubes in Electronics
Carbon nanomaterials could bring a huge wave of innovation in the development of new generations of electronics. In this exclusive interview, Chris Rutherglen, CTO at Carbonics Inc, shares some of the recent advancements in this exciting field of research with Electronics Point.
IoT Device Vulnerabilities Are Increasing with No End in Sight
With demand for internet of things technology increasing exponentially, engineers are creating more and more devices on a monthly basis. But, as malware attacks continue to rise, it seems digital security teams can’t keep up with the vulnerabilities.
