Soldier Modernisation: How Wearable Electronics Are Designed for The Military
Owing to the rapid rise and sustained adoption of wearable electronics in the military sector, the modern and future soldier may look similar to a character out of a video game. Armed forces of several nations are utilising body-worn protective gear that contain a wide range of sensors and electronic devices.
Electronic Sensor Technologies in Military Ground Applications
Modern military environments and warfare zones require the most sophisticated and reliable sensor technologies to communicate critical information about environmental conditions, as well as for positioning, target acquisition, weapon control, and intelligence gathering.
How Far We Have Come with Electroacoustic Transducers
Today’s devices feature hundreds of electroacoustic transducers the average user interacts with daily, knowingly or unknowingly. From smartphone assistants to voice control in autonomous vehicles and voice-activated robots, the field is open for design to EEs.
What Is Power Over Ethernet and How Does It Benefit Engineers?
First introduced in 1997 by PowerDsine (a semiconductor and systems company ultimately acquired by Microsemi), Power over Ethernet (PoE) is today one of the most efficient, cost-effective, and scalable cabling standards in the electronics industry.
Circuit Protection in Industrial Applications: Standards, Devices, and Techniques
Circuit protection is a vital consideration in factories and manufacturing plants that helps to ensure the safety of personnel working on-site while protecting industrial equipment and assets from damage due to electrical and fire hazards.
Intrinsically Safe Systems: What Electrical Engineers Should Know
Electrical engineers who design systems intended for use in hazardous areas must adopt an intrinsically safe approach to minimise the risk of fire hazards. ‘Intrinsically safe’ refers to electrical devices and apparatus whose electrical energy is too low to cause combustion-triggering sparking or heating effects in hazardous environments.
Securing Consumer Privacy While Still Ensuring the Accurate Quality of the Data Collected
Research highlights the importance of preventing data breaches through accidental exposure or employee malpractice and proposes a new method of scrambling survey datasets while keeping the integrity of the data.
