A study shows new ways of driving multi-legged robots by means of a two-level controller. The proposed controller has a network of so-called non-linear oscillators – enabling the generation of diverse gaits and postures.
STMicroelectronics have introduced the world’s first multi-frequency sat-nav receiver chipset, suitable for safety-critical automotive applications and high accuracy positioning at the decimetre and centimetre-level.
u-blox, a global leader in wireless and positioning technologies, have announced that Japan-based Aerosense Inc. has commercialised its AEROBO Marker solution for drone surveying using the u-blox NEO-M8T timing module.
Researchers at The University of Manchester are using computer simulations of chimpanzees to improve – not only our understanding of how the animals walk – but also the technology we use to do it.
Paving the way for extended battery life and diminished safety risks, using a 3-dimensional layer of PDMS, or silicone, as the substrate of lithium metal anode has been found to mitigate dendrite formation.
Advanced, high-resolution observations from the Dunn Solar have led to the discovery – and long-awaited confirmation – that magnetic waves crashing through the sun may be key to heating its atmosphere and propelling the solar wind.
Our latest issue covers display technologies and consumer electronics applications, as well as our most recent Outsourcing supplement. Our cover feature looks at real-time sensing and the development of smart homes.
Research shows that young people are now more inspired career-wise by Mark Zuckerberg than David Beckham. This is just part of BAE Systems research in light of their nationwide STEM initiative: the Schools Roadshow.
Snips announces the launch of its in-car voice assistant, enabling a number of popular voice-activated use cases, including navigation, sharing ETAs with contacts and/or being able to call them direct from the driver’s seat.
