Wearable tech for pilot fatigue
Air Georgian has been working closely with pilots and Fatigue Science to collect de-identified sleep data. This data has been collected over the past year and is establishing a sleep hygiene baseline for a fatigue program.
Small flying robots haul heavy loads
A closed door is just one of many obstacles that poses no barrier to a new type of flying, micro, tugging robot called a FlyCroTug. Outfitted with advanced gripping technologies and the ability to move and pull on objects around it, two FlyCroTugs can jointly lasso the door handle and heave the door open.
World's first 3D volumetric circuit
Research on the 3D/volumetric circuit technology was borne out of the notion that a three-dimensional circuit offers more freedom to make circuits smaller, lighter and more efficient. 3D printing allows them to be manufactured into arbitrary form factors that can be integrated into any object or surface.
US Marines 3D printed concrete barracks
The Additive Manufacturing Team at Marine Corps Systems Command teamed up with Marines from I Marine Expeditionary Force to operate the world's largest concrete 3D printer at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center in Champaign, Illinois.
If military robot falls, it can get itself up
Scientists at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory and the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory have developed software to ensure that if a robot falls, it can get itself back up, meaning future military robots will be less reliant on their Soldier handlers.
Water bottles and other recycled 3D printing materials
Soldiers on the battlefield or at remote bases often have to wait weeks for vital replacement parts. Now scientists report they have found a way to fabricate many of these parts within hours under combat conditions using water bottles, cardboard and other recyclable materials.
Agenda Announced - Biggest Brands - Most Innovative Technology
The agenda for the world's largest event on printed, flexible and organic electronics, Printed Electronics USA has just been announced. The speaker programme has been designed by IDTechEx analysts, embedded in the industry, who have selected the biggest brands and most exciting technology developments from across the globe.
Introducing the latest in textiles: Soft hardware
The latest development in textiles and fibers is a kind of soft hardware that you can wear: cloth that has electronic devices built right into it.
Robots to be more reliable teammates for soldiers
Researchers have developed a new technique to quickly teach robots novel traversal behaviors with minimal human oversight. The technique allows mobile robot platforms to navigate autonomously in environments while carrying out actions a human would expect of the robot in a given situation.
