Human Augmentation and Arduino Technologies Bruce Byfield
Arduino microcontrollers are playing a major role in the development of prosthetics and devices for human augmentation. Once aimed at students and hobbyists, today Arduino technologies offer numerous advantages typical of open source software and hardware that significantly accelerate development and reduce costs.

CES 2019: Defining a New Smarter Society For Us All Mouser Staff
The 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) brought together a mind-blowing myriad of different product innovations. With a projected 180,000 people and nearly 4,500 companies attending, there simply isn’t another tech-related event that competes with this in terms of either scale or diversity.

Where Nanotechnology, the IoT, and Industry 4.0 Meet Liam Critchley
The Internet of Things (IoT) has been developing and advancing for many years and has brought around the beginning of the fourth industrial revolution, Industry 4.0, where many processes are now being automated. While it is not obvious, nanotechnology also has a role to play in this new industry.

How Nanotechnology Has Helped to Realize Flexible and Wearable Electronics Liam Critchley
Flexible and wearable electronics are rapidly growing industries. The development and growth of these devices are due to the benefits and specific properties of the nanomaterials that are commonly used within these devices. Here we look at why nanomaterials are used in these electronic devices.

Wireless Tech Helps Protect Healthcare Budgets Steven Keeping
An aging population is increasingly suffering from chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart failure, and frequent hospitalization puts an additional load on stressed healthcare budgets. However, now wireless technology is enabling good symptom management, keeping seniors safe at home and protecting healthcare budgets.

Nano, Nano: Shrinking Power Consumption Down in Analog Power Design Paul Golata
Using their analog expertise, ROHM Semiconductor has developed a new product line, the Nano Series, to achieve more compact parts that require less energy to operate.

Augmenting Intelligence: Enabling Neural Networks Paul Golata
Artificial neural networks (ANNs) are a connected system of nodes that transmit nerve impulses, much like human neurons do. ANNs have made significant inroads, helping technologists develop new solutions in machine vision, human speech recognition, and medical diagnostics.

Exoskeletons Present Mobility Solutions Using an Array of Sensors Steve Schriber
Powered exoskeletons augment or deliver motion capabilities using motors, sensors, actuators, power sources, and control units. Kinetic sensors such as gyroscopes, tilt sensors, inertial sensors, and accelerometers provide necessary feedback to help an exoskeleton stay balanced and on course.

Ensuring the Electrical Safety of Powered Exoskeletons Alex Misiti
Exoskeleton use in improving the mobility of patients with spinal cord injuries, helping industrial workers lift heavy objects, and enhancing soldiers’ abilities on the battlefield are obvious benefits, but designers and engineers must remove safety risks to ensure the health and well-being of users.

A Smart Collar That Gives Pets a Voice Traci Browne
If my dog could talk, I’m pretty sure he’d go on and on about food and the chipmunks in the backyard. But, what if he could also let me know when he wasn’t feeling well? Believe it or not, smart collar devices are doing just that by giving our pets a voice.
