Tracing has provided developers with new insights, debugging, and verification capabilities that have the potential to dramatically change the way embedded software is developed. Here are seven tips for getting started.
Scientists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) have developed a vacuum-powered, soft pneumatic actuator that can be modularly deployed for a variety of robotics applications.
The system, which can either be a mobile unit or fixed to the shop floor, enables a three-step process that recovers any unused material from the printer, screens it and returns it to the machine for immediate reuse or to a container for storage.
Notable ex-Silicon Valley tech guru Bill Joy is backing the design of new battery technology that is aimed at solving the problem of next-generation energy storage once and for all with a polymer electrolyte material.
Ultrasonic manipulation could incorporate assembly into additive manufacturing, widening the capabilities of current printers, potentially leading to the creation of a printer that could print and assemble whole devices.
