IoT Drives Demand for Automotive Circuit Protection Solutions

In the past, automobiles were made up of many independent electronic systems. Even the assembly lines that were used to manufacture the vehicles required the operation and management of multiple independent systems. However, the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT) has changed automotive electronics and assembly dramatically. The connectivity that used to only be available in the home or office is now available in modern automobiles. The car itself has now become the center of communication.

Identifying the Root Cause of EMC Compliance Problems at a PCB level

EMC chambers are not the best tool to use for debugging when a device fails compliance tests or to diagnose root causes of failures. Detection of emissions hot spots using hand held sniffer probes can be effective but it is slow and does not deliver a full board picture of the problem. The probe array based Very-Near-Field scanning technique developed by EMSCAN allows real-time evaluation of the spatial distribution of emissions over the entire board.

Tactile Power Steering Senses Direction of Motorized Carts

Tactile handles forklifts, industrial trucks, and motorized carts are being developed that employ pressure sensors to detect the direction in which a user is pushing or pulling the cart. Workers can get a cart moving in the right direction with very little effort using the pressure sensors. Since the handles are equipped with sensors for both hands, a cart does more than just detect whether it is being pushed or pulled.

Photonic Structures Act as Tiny Temperature and Humidity Sensors

Many machines such as turbines, oil drills, health monitors, and nuclear reactors require internal sensors to monitor physical states such as temperature. Researchers are developing compact silicon photonic sensors that can provide accurate readings without being damaged by the toxic, corrosive, or even explosive conditions within these machines.

New Technique Could Improve Detection of Concealed Nuclear Materials

A low-energy nuclear reaction imaging technique designed to detect the presence of weapons-grade uranium and plutonium in cargo containers arriving at U.S. ports was demonstrated. The method relies on a combination of neutrons and high-energy photons to detect shielded radioactive materials inside the containers.

NASA Prepares Flight Tests of Unmanned Aircraft

NASA and its partners are validating and advancing technologies that will assist the FAA as they develop the regulations to allow integration of unmanned aircraft into the National Airspace System. Test objectives will require 15 flights and more than 270 encounters. These encounters will consist of flying several piloted aircraft, referred to as intruders, into different positions near or around NASA’s Predator B remotely piloted aircraft, Ikhana.
