Fog can inhibit the driver's vision and has been among the highest heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) complaints reported in recent J. D. Power Initial Quality Surveys. An automatic fog control system which uses the inputs from a unit such as Delphi's Integrated Dew Point and Glass Temperature (IDGT) sensor operates in conjunction with the automatic climate control system to prevent fogging. Unlike an infrared fog detector, the IDGT measures glass temperature, air temperature under the sensor, and the relative humidity of the air to react prior to fog occurring. Recent enhancements in the sensor include improved response for the capacitive humidity sensor in the 80 to 100 percent relative humidity range and more accurate (2 percent) thermistors to measure the fogging condition more accurately.

We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
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
