ADI’s Senior Field Applications Engineer, Thomas Brand, Talks Industry 4.0 and Cyber Security
With no stopping the rising, urgent importance of cyber security in Industry 4.0, Analog Devices is a prominent example of a manufacturer that’s proving prepared. Thomas Brand, senior field applications engineer (FAE) at ADI, shares the specific systems they’ve put in place.
Securing Medtech Devices Now Possible Through Signal Manipulation
If you've ever wondered what it would be like to have your information secured with something uniquely yours, then your own body is as close as it gets. Thanks to new technology, medical data can now be protected from breaches using the human body as the encryption medium.
The HaptX Gloves: ‘Hands-on’ Haptic VR and How it Works
For engineers, HMIs, particularly those in VR and AR, are becoming an increasingly relied-upon approach to the design and manufacture of products, especially in the automotive industry. But aside from the audiovisual benefits of immersive computing, the user experience ideally needs to be tactile, too; and this is where haptic wearables, such as HaptX Gloves, come in.
Medical Devices are Leading the IoT Revolution, Not Consumer Ones
The IoT has opened the doors to endless opportunities within healthcare and medicine. When your ordinary, run of the mill medical devices are supplemented with connectivity and added to the IoT, they can collect invaluable information, data, and provide healthcare professionals with greater insight into the patient.
Arm’s VP of IoT Cloud Services Shares The Greatest Challenges in IoT Utilities
As the IoT grows ever more crucial, the same goes for efficient and secure IoT deployments, especially in the increasingly-regulated utilities space. EP’s Sam Holland talked to SVP of software giant Arm’s IoT Cloud Services division, Himagiri Mukkamala, about his experience of optimising IoT solutions in the utilities sector, particularly in relation to Arm’s recent partnership with smart meter manufacturer, EDMI.
Boeing 737 MAX: The Electrical Flight System Identified as a Potential Culprit
Within five months of one another, two Boeing 737 MAX jets crashed, none of the passengers survived. Preliminary black box data has identified an electrical flight system as the possible culprit, but what exactly happened?
SpaceX’s Crew Dragon Craft Launches Successfully and Autonomously Docks Itself with the ISS in a World First
How do you achieve the best of both worlds when it comes to engineering training: teaching engineers how to design and manufacture as realistically as possible—without the risk of causing any kind of damages? Many will know the answer already: you train them through VR simulations; but the issue is that traditional VR starts and ends at the audio-visual user experience...
Barriers to IoT Medical Devices
The question of whether the IoT is revolutionising healthcare has long since been answered—IoT medical devices are completely changing the industry as we know it. Every new opportunity faces barriers and resistance, though, and IoT medical devices aren't immune from these.
TurboTrack: MIT’s RFID-based Answer to Machine Vision Robotics
While machine vision is often the ‘done deal’ for informing robotic motor functions, sometimes it’s the simpler solutions that prove the most robust. Here’s a look at TurboTrack: Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s radiofrequency identification tag-based technology, whose signal-reading approach has proved foolproof in many aspects where machine vision robot guidance falls down.
Bluetooth 5.1: What the Latest in Generation 5 Has to Offer
'Bluetooth' is named after the English translation of 'Blåtand': the surname of King Harald Blåtand, who unified Denmark—so in his memory, it’s no surprise that the wireless standard has remained an important part of the connected world since the late 90s. Now, it’s more communicative, efficient and scalable than ever: here’s a look at what’s putting the '.1' in 'Bluetooth 5.1'.
Will Brexit Cripple Automobile Manufacturing in the UK?
Brexit has been one of the most discussed topics in the UK in the past year. The implications of a deal or no-deal consensus between the UK and EU will affect every facet of the economy due to the multi-level trade agreements the country has had with EU member states for decades. More specifically, a no-deal Brexit will certainly impact the vehicle manufacturing industry.
Human Machine Interfaces That Will Bring About Extended Reality (XR)
Throughout history, our idea of reality had been based on feedback from our natural senses about the state of the physical world around us. However, with giant leaps in the fields of digital reality and spatial perception, we can now experience so much more than what is physically there.
