MIT researchers have developed an on-chip system that detects signals at sub-terahertz wavelengths, which could help steer driverless cars through fog and dust.
MIT researchers, along with scientists in Russia and Singapore, have developed a system of “strain engineering," which can change a material’s optical, electrical, and thermal properties using artificial intelligence (AI).
Automation software and hardware advances reduce programming tasks and provide more built-in configurability, scalability, background communication among software components, simulation/digital twin capability, and usability.
Automation advice: Devices and systems should provide a positive customer experience and be easily connect, monitor, commission, and operate. Use the smartphone benchmark.
