Drone fires Sense darts for data collection in hard to reach locations

A research team at Imperial College London have created a new aerial sensor deployment system which uses a drone capable of firing Sense darts into tree trunks for data collection from hard to reach locations. The drone firing mechanism uses a compressed spring together with a shape-memory alloy (SMA) trigger to fire the sensor pods …

SMART MARBLES AND AI TO DETECT FLAWS IN PIPELINES

A small team of researchers led by Peter Baltus, professor of microelectronics at the department of Electrical Engineering at Eindhoven Institute of Technology, the Netherlands, has developed small circuit boards equipped with sensors that can easily fit into a small golf-sized ball. While moving inside a pipeline, these swarm of smart marbles or balls can detect any obstacles, damages …
