IoT in HVAC equipment offers numerous benefits to the building owners, occupants and facility managers. Adding the Internet of Things (IoT) increases the efficiency of the entire system by allowing users to automatically monitor and control a wide range of variables. Although users have been using devices such as the Nest thermostat […]

Innovative technologies such as Augmented Reality glasses have the potential to improve the work environment and the way the maintenance staff performs their tasks. With costs coming down, companies can benefit a lot from using AR in maintenance. Generally, the technicians and engineers rely on multiple sources of information when performing their […]
Redshift is a data warehouse service that runs complex and massive analytics workloads to produce actionable data.
Attribution modeling is the setting up of rules to determine how to assign credit for a sale to particular touchpoints along the conversion path.
An EFT switch is an integrated system with the ability to accept, authorize and securely route financial transactions according to set rules. The Electronic Funds Transfer switch provides a crucial link between multiple customers’ touch points and a financial institution’s back office system, hence allowing the banks to deliver multiple self-service channels. The self-service features […]
What is Constant Current? The constant current source or driver is a circuit whose output current remains constant regardless changes in its voltage, or load resistance. The constant current circuits are used in applications such as current limiters, supplying LEDs for illumination applications such as display back-lighting and other current sensitive circuits. The load current […]
A newly developed vine-like robot can grow across long distances without moving its whole body. It could prove useful in search and rescue operations and medical applications. Imagine rescuers searching for people in the rubble of a collapsed building. Instead of digging through the debris by hand or having dogs sniff for signs of life, […]
A new plasmonic sensor developed by researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will serve as a reliable early detection of biomarkers for many forms of cancer and eventually other diseases. The sensor has been proven reliable to detect the presence of the cancer biomarker carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) to the magnitude of 1 nanogram […]
The electronics and semiconductors industry is defined by robust competition, declining profit margins, and intensive research and development efforts. Yet, it is also teeming with opportunities and exciting possibilities that leverage biotechnology, nano-sciences, photonics, and remote sensing. On the other hand, companies in the ICT sector are concentrating on maximising their IT framework investments. FMI […]
Cellphones and other devices could soon be controlled with touchless gestures and charge themselves using ambient light, thanks to new LED arrays that can both emit and detect light. Made of tiny nanorods arrayed in a thin film, the LEDs could enable new interactive functions and multitasking devices. Researchers at the University of Illinois at […]
