Raising the standard with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Deep Learning: Konica Minolta launches MOBOTIX 7 solution platform

Konica Minolta is making the next big advance in intelligent video technology by launching the MOBOTIX 7 smart solution platform and the M73 IoT camera that uses it. The latest generation of MOBOTIX video cameras offers a whole new set of functions plus application solutions based on deep learning, opening up new possibilities far beyond traditional video security. The M73 comes with more than 15 apps integrated into its camera software, which can be used to optimise business processes in practically any industry.

First guideline for assured quality in additive manufacturing

The currently presented DIN SPEC 17071 is the first standard for quality assurance in additive manufacturing. It defines uniform requirements for plants, materials, processes and employees. Companies can use the guideline to set up a risk-minimized production process ready for industrial use. The standard was developed with the significant participation of Deutsche Bahn, MT Aerospace, Siemens and TÜV SÜD and can be viewed at the certifier's stand at formnext in Frankfurt until 22 November (Hall 11.1, Stand E60).

Shan X. Wang from Stanford University talks about Emerging Memory Fundamentals at the Stanford Workshop on Emerging Non-Volatile Memories and Artificial Intelligence

A one-day workshop at Stanford University on August 29, 2019, put on by the Stanford Center for Magnetic Nanotechnology and Coughlin Associates, features invited expert speakers to talk about various emerging non-volatile memories and how they will enable the next generation of artificial intelligence (AI) devices in the home, in the factory and in industry.

Robot destroys hospital bugs - IERA Award 2019

The 15th Innovation and Entrepreneurship Award in Robotics and Automation (IERA) goes to the “UVD Robot” by Blue Ocean Robotics. The collaborative robot autonomously drives around hospitals while emitting concentrated UV-C light to eliminate bacteria and other harmful microorganisms. As a result, hospitals can guarantee a 99.99% disinfection rate – reducing the risk for patients, staff and relatives of contracting dangerous infections.

Touchscreens go 3D with buttons that pulsate and vibrate under your fingertips

By pulsing or vibrating on demand, smartphone screens can help users navigate through a menu or can guide a user’s finger to virtual on-screen buttons that can be created or removed wherever and whenever needed. Professor Stefan Seelecke and his team at Saarland University have developed a film that gives touchscreens a third dimension. The thin and extremely lightweight silicone film can adopt a variety of positions and shapes and can be made to execute a single pulse, a pushing motion, a sudden jolt or a prolonged vibration at a specific location on the screen. The polymer film also exhibits sensor properties and can therefore provide the device with an added sense organ.

New IIoT Conference at Hannover Messe to Guide Industrial Tech Buyers

The IoT M2M Council (IMC), the largest trade organization dedicated to the Internet of Things, will join forces with Hannover Messe, the world’s largest manufacturing trade show, to produce a conference that will give practical advice on procuring IoT technology solutions. Machine communication has become an integral part of advanced manufacturing, allowing for predictive maintenance in production lines, more efficient supply chains, and many other benefits. Hannover Messe has been a focal point for these cutting-edge technologies, but the IMC’s IIoT Infrastructure Conference will take a new approach, focusing on practical issues of procurement for industrial buyers.

Bipolar battery setups

Whether used for power supply or in electric cars, current battery systems are based on a series of interconnected individual cells, which has certain disadvantages in terms of efficiency and manufacturing. Bipolar battery setups, in contrast, comprise compact stacks of individual cells. A new type of flexible and extremely thin bipolar plate allows batteries to be manufactured cost effectively.
