To make liquid crystal displays brighter, more energy-efficient, and easier-to-see, this display architecture uses phosphor materials instead of filters. The basic idea is to turn what is a transmissive or transflective display into an emissive one—that is to use an active or passive matrix LCD display to activate a photoluminescent display screen that offers better color purity, a wider viewing angle, and reduced power consumption.
This new display architecture is available for license and is targeted at applications where improved display visibility and power efficiency are important.
Two approaches can be used to backlight such a display: near-ultraviolet that stimulates an emissive screen composed of green, red, and blue phosphors; and monochrome (blue) that stimulates green and red phosphors only. While the near-UV allows using standard phosphors, it comes at the expense of operating life. The monochrome blue approach overcomes the UV degradation issue, but requires more expensive red and green phosphor materials.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
A recent example of a major CAE revamp is MSC Apex, released last month by MSC Software Corp. In a discussion with Design News, MSC executives noted that its next-generation platform is designed to substantially reduce CAE modeling and process time, “in some cases from weeks down to hours.”
The Thames Deckway would run for eight miles close to the river’s edge, rising and falling slightly with the tidal cycle. It will generate its own energy from a series of devices that will line the pathway and use a combination of sources to make the path self-sustaining.
