Japanese chipmaker Rohm has developed an optical heart rate sensor for smart bands and watches, which, thanks to its high-speed 1024 Hz sampling, can be used for measuring blood pressure, stress and vascular age.
Engineers at the University of Washington have developed a method to safely charge a smartphone wirelessly using a laser.
The latest technology demonstrator from Peratech shows how Quantum Tunnelling Composite (QTC®) force sensing can accelerate the evolution of mobile phones.
Engineers at the University of Washington (Seattle, WA) have developed a method to safely charge a smartphone wirelessly using a laser.
Autonomous cars need a whole armada of sensors: lidar, radar and cameras. A cooperation between chip manufacturer STMicroelectronics and the Israeli start-up company AdaSky is now bringing an additional layer of information into the sensor landscape: a thermal imaging camera in the far infrared range helps the car to recognise its environment even in darkness and poor visibility.
