The FL1D SmartRelay features improvements with firmware, hardware and software upgrades, along with a new expansion module. The modular and adaptable base modules are equipped with eight digital inputs and four digital outputs, so the SmartRelay can expand up to 24 digital inputs, 16 digital outputs and eight analog inputs. The new PI controller allows users to control temperature, pressure, or level with six predefined parameters sets.
A Tokyo company, Miraisens Inc., has unveiled a device that allows users to move virtual 3D objects around and "feel" them via a vibration sensor. The device has many applications within the gaming, medical, and 3D-printing industries.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational
fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
