3D Printed Objects That Sense How a User is Interacting With Them

3D Printed Objects That Sense How a User is Interacting With Them

Researchers have developed a new method to 3D print mechanisms that detect how force is being applied to an object. The structures are made from a single piece of material, so they can be rapidly prototyped. A designer could use this method to 3D print "interactive input devices," like a joystick, switch, or handheld controller, in one go.

Barriers Fall Unleashing Autonomous Cars in 2021

The new IDTechEx report, "Autonomous Cars, Robotaxis & Sensors 2022-2042", discovers that level 3 autonomous vehicle technology has been ready since 2017- so where are the autonomous vehicles? The answer lies in unclear liability rules, which have turned out to be a massive headache for automakers like Audi, Tesla, GM, Mercedes, and others.

IDTechEx Autonomous Sensor Suite Summary - 2022

IDTechEx Autonomous Sensor Suite Summary - 2022

In general, three primary sensors are associated with autonomous driving: cameras, radars and LiDARs. There are some examples of companies choosing not to use one of these sensor types, e.g. Tesla opting for a camera only solution, however, these are very much exceptions that prove the rule. For high levels of autonomy, operating in all weather conditions, all three sensors are recommended for covering all necessary tasks.

Smart Wound Dressings with Built-In Healing Sensors

Smart Wound Dressings with Built-In Healing Sensors

Researchers have developed smart wound dressings with built-in nanosensors that glow to alert patients when a wound is not healing properly. The multifunctional, antimicrobial dressings feature fluorescent sensors that glow brightly under UV light if infection starts to set in and can be used to monitor healing progress.

Why Driving Will be Outlawed by 2050

Autonomous cars will match or exceed human safety by 2024, after which they will grow rapidly at a CAGR of 30% finds IDTechEx's new report "Autonomous Cars, Robotaxis & Sensors 2022-2042". By the 2040s, they will be capable of fulfilling the world's mobility needs without a single collision. So why should humans be allowed to continue driving?
