Crossbow Technology announced the DMU-VGX, said to be the industry's first high-speed, solid-state true vertical gyro with performance needed in applications such as camera stabilization. Secret? It couples a MEMS sensor with a high-speed DSP ...Endevco unveiled its caps model 256, a low-cost accelerometer targeted at small structural applications. Measuring 0.44 x 0.375 x 0.380 inch high, it weighs just 3.2 gm, minimizing mass loading effects ...CSEM (Centre Swisse d'Electronique et de Microtech-nique) introduced the MS 6100 Series low-power calibrated accelero-meter. The tiny MEMS device is matched to an ASIC for signal conditioning and EEPROM to hold calibration data. It draws 170 (mu)A and is aimed at portable applications ..VTI Hamlin also unveiled its unique new silicon inclinometer for rugged applications.
With erupting concern over police brutality, law enforcement agencies are turning to body-worn cameras to collect evidence and protect police and suspects. But how do they work? And are they even really effective?
A half century ago, cars were still built by people, not robots. Even on some of the country’s longest assembly lines, human workers installed windows, doors, hoods, engines, windshields, and batteries, with no robotic aid.
DuPont's Hytrel elastomer long used in automotive applications has been used to improve the way marine mooring lines are connected to things like fish farms, oil & gas installations, buoys, and wave energy devices. The new bellow design of the Dynamic Tethers wave protection system acts like a shock absorber, reducing peak loads as much as 70%.
