Flexible Silicone Sensors Enable Stepless Control Devices

Researchers have created flexible silicone sensors that make it easier to steplessly control devices such as a multifunction steering wheel that lets the driver control music, light, and ventilation at the touch of a finger. Multifunction steering wheels are standard in most automobiles today, and drivers can easily manipulate the cruise control and stereo without taking their hands of the wheel. However, the buttons are inflexible and the driver can often only switch something “on” and “off.”

Beach Buoys Detect Water Contamination

Beachgoers may soon be able to know in a timely manner if the water is clean enough for swimming. The technology comes in the form of buoys that are deployed in the water near a beach. By combining statistical models with real-time data gathered by sensors embedded in the buoys, they provide quick and dependable information on water quality.

Developing Secure Embedded Software

Quality Doesn’t Equal Security Most organization put considerable focus on software quality, but software security is different. Embedded development presents the challenge of coding in a language that’s inherently insecure; and quality assurance does little to ensure security.

How IoT is Making Security Imperative for All Embedded Software

Why embedded software development needs to change and what organizations can do to improve software security while reducing development time Many IoT products lack proper security due to outdated software development practices. Hackers and criminals are acutely aware that many of the security procedures and applications in use today were designed to defend against attacks in the PC era – not current IoT threat vectors. Security isn't a product "add-on" or feature; it must be built in. Learn about the unique challenges of securing embedded applications and how to deploy processes and tools to deliver more secure products faster.
