The home was built as part of the U.S. Dept. of Energy’s Solar Decathlon in which 20 university-led teams from across the U.S., Canada, Spain and Germany competed to design, build and operate the most efficient and attractive solar-powered homes. Siemens contributed technology, as well as volunteers, to provide the engineering support to help students from Kansas connect and control the solar power, heating, ventilation, lights and other systems into an integrated system.
The Kansas Project home utilizes sensors that gauge ambient light and turn off light fixtures automatically when they’re not needed. The home also features recycled and reclaimed building materials, including wood from a barn that volunteers tore down themselves.
Lantronix Inc. has expanded its line of controllers for sensor networks with the release of a rugged controller that improves management of automation systems used in a number of industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and chemicals.
Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
