In a study that holds promise for self-driving cars, MIT researchers have developed a system that can image and gauge the distance of objects shrouded by fog so thick that human vision can't penetrate it.
Technology developed at the University of Waterloo reliably and affordably increases the efficiency of internal combustion engines by more than 10 per cent.
Heads-up displays are transparent devices used in airplanes and cars to provide information such as critical flight data or driving directions on the windshield. An innovative holography-based approach could soon make these heads-up displays much easier to see with a large eye box.
Farm manure could be a viable source of renewable energy to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming.
The emergence of inexpensive small unmanned aircraft systems (sUASs) that operate without a human pilot, commonly known as drones, has led to adversarial groups threatening deployed U.S. forces, especially infantry units.
Vast quantities of scarce metals are being lost from Europe's urban mine of vehicles, including 20 tonnes of gold each year -- and the proportion of critical metals in vehicles is continuing to increase. A database is now being published that charts the metals and facilitates recycling. On 8 March Maria Ljunggren Söderman, researcher at Chalmers University of Technology, will present the results at IEA's expert meeting.
The new technology called a bilevel equalizer is the first hybrid that combines the high performance of an active equalizer with the low cost of the passive equalizer.
Analysis of research from 1991 to 2015 on talking on the phone while driving can inform lawmakers in crafting driver safety legislation.
ORNL's new model could better predict tiny pockets of methylmercury lurking in creek algae; engines work smarter with new fuel innovation; making high-purity metallic structures narrower than a cold virus could advance tiny electronics, drug delivery and more; insights on certain enzymes that try to break down antibiotics may inform better drug designs for fighting resistant bacteria; ORNL is preparing current software simulations for small modular reactors to run on next-generation supercomputers.
Computers may better predict taxi and ride sharing service demand, paving the way toward smarter, safer and more sustainable cities, according to an international team of researchers.
