Siemens VDO Automotive (www.usa.siemensvdo.com) has recently presented findings of contact sensing technologies for active pedestrian protection systems. According to new European legislation, carmakers must pass a series of tests on frontal impact between a vehicle and a pedestrian. Siemens has investigated the use of contact sensing technologies in profile detection, deformation velocity, contact surface and signal evaluation, force sensing resistors, inductive contact sensors, and sensor prototypes in the bumper area.
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.”
