In today’s lead INSIDER story, Professor Jordan Raney said that the most interesting feature of his embodied-logic system is its ability to monitor an environment for a very long period of time, without needing a continued input of energy.
“For example, with a microfluidic chip you might be interested in confirming that there is no contaminant entering into one of its inputs,” Raney told Tech Briefs. “This technology could passively wait for weeks or months without power, and then suddenly close off the channel as soon as contaminant was detected.”
Raney envisions the power-management feature supporting similar applications in remote monitoring or deployable structures.
