Rice University researchers have produced flexible devices that use laser-induced graphene, which are designed turn movement into electrical energy and could enable wearable, self-powered sensors and devices.
International: Just because something can be automated doesn’t mean it should. Pay attention to the details. High-profile mission-critical automation applications and smaller-scale control systems should optimize reliability, safety and efficiency.
Inkbit, a startup out of MIT, is working to bring 3-D printing benefits to a slew of products that have never been printed before by pairing its multimaterial inkjet 3-D printer with machine vision and machine learning systems.
Control cabinet power supplies and uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs), thanks to higher-level intelligence, are evolving to provide operational information to users to make operations safer and more efficient.
There are several key barriers to the implementation of predictive maintenance technologies, but they can be alleviated.
Robots are working in specialized fields and dangerous applications and many of them are able to work safely and effectively thanks to gripper technology advances.
A rigorous specification can help minimize downtime, safety and financial risks during a drive’s typical 20-year lifecycle. Examine the details.
