How wireless X-ray vision could help with motion capture. A team of researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) has long believed that wireless signals like WiFi can be used to see things that are invisible to the naked eye.
Since 2013, CSAIL researchers have been developing technologies that use wireless signals to track human motion. The team has shown that it can detect gestures and body movements as subtle as the rise and fall of a person’s chest from the other side of a house, allowing a mother to monitor a baby’s breathing or a firefighter to determine if there are survivors inside a burning building.

As machine intelligence advances the development of things, we will see more sophisticated intelligence incorporated into robots who will go to battle on our behalf. What happens when digital business penetrates to the core of how things operate in the military realm? Continue reading “Smart Machines and the Battle of Things”
A significant issue in the operation of in-line process analytical measurement systems is not knowing when pH sensors will require maintenance or if a sensor is going to fail unexpectedly. METTLER TOLEDO has a solution to this in the form of its Intelligent Sensor Management (ISM®) technology and Sensors That Learn™. Continue reading “METTLER TOLEDO Introduces Sensors That Learn™”
German manufacturer Hella Group is working on sets of smart car sensors that can notify you when you car has been scratched, dented, punctured, or worse. The sensor kit, called the Intelligent Damage Detection System, is adhered to the backside of body panels or hooked into existing electronic infrastructure like Park Distance Control.
