Sensors don't just make vehicles more comfortable. Banner Engineering's racing Pontiac GXP.R puts a customized Banner long-range optical sensor on each corner of the car's front end to measure its downforce, the downward pressure that makes the car hug the track. The greater the downforce, the faster the car can go through curves and turns. During practice runs, the car collects a stream of data about the changing distance between the car's front end and the track. Crews then modify the car's tires and suspension to fit the track's combination of curves and straights.
These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
Ear-based heart-rate monitoring gained momentum recently, as sensor maker Valencell Inc. announced it has licensed its biometric earpiece technology to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd for use in so-called “hearable devices.”
