An encoder part number reference website deciphers more than 200,000 size-25 encoder combinations, gives descriptions and replacement options with next-day delivery for orders placed by 6 p.m. CST; 10 two-button-programmable encoders are said to cover all combinations.
Imaging technique could enable new pathways for reducing concrete’s hefty carbon footprint, as well as 3D printing concrete.
Rice University researchers have found an orthoferrite material showing uniquely tunable interactions that could have a major impact on quantum technology and sensing.
MIT researchers developed a robot that digs through granular material, like sand and gravel, and find the shapes of buried objects with tactile sensing, which could help inspect cables and more. See video.
Northwestern Engineering researchers have developed a lens produced by electromagnetic methods that allows researchers to print structures on challenging surfaces.
Demand for robot vision sensors are very high all over the world and will keep the global robot sensor market strong for the next several years.
Graphene-based biosensors are being used to develop better, cheaper, quicker, more accessible testing for the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
A passive down-conversion imaging system created allows engineers to peer into the UV range while still viewing the visible spectrum for better machine vision results.
Light detection and ranging (LIDAR) scanning offers critical benefits to clients and engineers and makes projects more efficient and minimizes conflicts.
Automated systems still struggle to replicate human efficiency in some visual inspection applications, but there are ways to get machine systems up to speed. Automated machine vision systems can improve over time; see three ways machine vision is catching up.
