Scientists have developed an automated tool for mapping the movement of particles inside cells that may accelerate research in many fields.
Robot uses machine learning to harvest lettuce
A vegetable-picking robot that uses machine learning to identify and harvest a commonplace, but challenging, agricultural crop has been developed by engineers.
CNI are a photonic products manufacturer specialising in laser diodes. CNI area a key player in the global laser diodes market.
'Submarines' small enough to deliver medicine inside human body
Engineers have shown that micro-submarines powered by nano-motors could navigate the human body to provide targeted drug delivery to diseased organs without the need for external stimulus.
Graphene incorporated into fabric for washable, wearable power source
The devices could be used for flexible circuits, healthcare monitoring, energy conversion, and other applications.
Driverless cars working together can speed up traffic by 35 percent
A fleet of driverless cars working together to keep traffic moving smoothly can improve overall traffic flow by at least 35 percent, researchers have shown.
Leech inspired wall climbing robot
Researchers have successfully developed a leech-shaped robot which can climb vertical walls.
Washable, wearable battery-like devices woven directly into clothes
Washable, wearable 'batteries': based on cheap, safe and environmentally-friendly inks and woven directly into fabrics, have been developed.
Smallest pixels ever created could light up colour-changing buildings
The smallest pixels yet created - a million times smaller than those in smartphones, made by trapping particles of light under tiny rocks of gold - could be used for new types of large-scale flexible displays, big enough to cover entire buildings.
PicoQuant are a manufacturer of photonic products and pulsed laser diode modules are a key product group.
Cambridge spin-out starts producing graphene at commercial scale
A recent University of Cambridge spin-out company, Paragraf, has started producing graphene - a sheet of carbon just one atomic layer thick - at up to eight inches (20cm) in diameter, large enough for commercial electronic devices.
Printed transistor unlocks potential for portable real-time sensing
Engineers have developed a high performance printed transistor with flexibility for use in wearable and implantable electronics.
New light-harvesting chemical for more effective solar panels
An international team of scientists, led by the UK, are hunting for new, organic light-harvesting chemicals to make solar panels that are both more effective at creating electricity and are environmentally friendly.
World's first gene therapy operation for common cause of sight loss
Researchers in Oxford have carried out the world's first gene therapy operation to tackle the root cause of age-related macular degeneration.
Intellegens is a spin-out from the University of Cambridge that has developed an Artificial Intelligence (AI) method for training neural networks from incomplete data sets.
Plessey is a UK-based working on MicroLEDs based on GaN-on-silicon technology.
3D-printed robot hand 'plays' the piano
Scientists have developed a 3D-printed robotic hand which can play simple musical phrases on the piano by just moving its wrist. And while the robot is no virtuoso, it demonstrates just how challenging it is to replicate all the abilities of a human hand, and how much complex movement can still be achieved through design.
