The Evolution of ADAS: Testing Systems That Include Cameras, Radar, and Sensor Fusion

In Conjunction with SAE

On their own, test requirements for camera and radar technology are rapidly changing as they become more safety critical. Because these systems are increasingly reliant on sensor fusion techniques, the test requirements are growing even more complex at a fast rate. A test system built on a scalable and flexible architecture is the only way to make sure you can adapt as quickly as ADAS technologies and autonomous vehicle systems are evolving.

Three Things Medical Device Designers Need to Know About UVC LEDs

The global infection control market is projected to reach $22 billion by 2022 with disinfection products, which would include UVC devices, representing the largest growth segment. UVC LEDs offer medical equipment designers an exciting new way to develop hand-held or portable disinfection devices to greatly enhance HAI prevention in a wide range of healthcare applications. Importantly, the design and operating flexibility of UVC LEDs means that these devices could be used during routine daily patient management and not limited to empty terminal room events.

One Plug-In Sensor Does Work of Many

The sensor board can be plugged in to a wall outlet, eliminating the need for batteries.

Researchers have developed a sensor package that monitors multiple phenomena in a room using machine-learning techniques. The prototype contained 19 different sensor channels, including sensors that indirectly detect sound, vibration, motion, color, light intensity, speed, and direction. The sensor board is plugged in to a wall outlet, eliminating the need for batteries.
