A Closer Look at Biosensor Technology at Sensors USA 2019
A key focus of the Sensors USA part of the IDTechEx Show! will be Point-of-Care Biosensors. Biosensor devices provide information associated with a specific health condition or disease. The general trend in biosensors is a move from testing in centralized hospitals, to the patents with point-of-care devices.
ABAX Sensing are a stealth mode start-up developing FMCW lidar modules. IDTechEx interviewed Dr Hongquan Jiang in April 2019.

Bosch extends the service life of electric vehicle batteries
Stress makes cells age faster. Something that geneticists have long since demonstrated for the human body is also true for electric-vehicle battery cells. The older the batteries get, the lower their performance and capacity, and the shorter the range of the vehicle. To help batteries last longer, Bosch is developing new cloud services that supplement the individual vehicles' battery-management systems.
