MIT Digital Fibers 400x275MIT researchers have created the first fiber with digital capabilities, able to sense, store, analyze, and infer activity after being sewn into a shirt. The researchers said this could expand the possibilities for fabrics to uncover hidden patterns in the human body that could be used for physical performance monitoring, medical inference, and early disease detection, among other uses.


SICK W4F 400x275SICK has announced launching a new miniature photoelectric sensor, the W4F, aimed for intelligent object detection in tight installation spaces for proximity-based applications. The new ASIC platform and sensors can detect jet black, highly reflective, flat, or transparent objects more reliably than other sensors. The W4F can also provide distance information, such as the height of objects, and, as a result, identify process eros. SICK said initial users of the W4F said the photoelectric sensors “have the best ambient light and sunlight suppression on the market, as well as maximum immunity to all known sources of optical interference.”


ACEINNA OpenIMU335RIACEINNA has announced the general availability of its OpenIMU335RI, a rugged inertial measurement unit (IMU) with CAN and RS232 interfaces. The OpenIMU335RI follows the earlier introduced IMU383ZA and OpenIMU330BI in the company’s Gen 3 architecture.
