Malleable Micro – Batteries for Wearable Technology

A new innovative technology for wearables is taking over the market of future technology. Wearables are portable systems that house sensors to make measurements from the wearer’s body. Powering these wearables requires flexible batteries that adapt to the specific material, and deliver the power needed for the system. Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration IZM developed a micro battery to ...

WRITING ARDUINO LIBRARIES, AN EXPERT VIEW

The Arduino IDE has a bit of a split personality. On the one hand, it is a simple environment where you can just pick and choose a few libraries, write a few lines of code, and make lots of interesting things. On the other hand, it is also an ecosystem in which many different boards and libraries can be supported. Writing a great library that everyone can easily use takes a little forethought. There is an o ...

Automated Greenhouse

We decided to design a greenhouse as subject for our electronic project. The goal was to regulate the temperature inside the greenhouse thanks a lamp, a servomotor to open a window and a PC fan. We wanted to maintain a quite constant level of soil moisture with a pump and to receive temperature, soil moisture and luminosity measurements. Finally, we designed a website to be able to control it remotely. This ...

Pressure Sensor of the Future, Today

Pressure sensors are used today in many fields, such as automotive industry, touch screen devices, aviation and biomedical instrumentation, many of these applications require precise and accurate measures. Many times, this can not be achieved because of the limitations of the sensors such as the inability to measure on round surfaces (if they are twisted or wrinkled). To solve this problem a transparent and ...

How to Select a Voltage Regulator

All electronics projects need power. Power can come from either stored energy in a battery, or directly from mains AC voltage or DC power from renewable sources such as solar energy. Power Management ICs (PMICs) help manage the power requirements in a system including scaling voltages, battery charging, and DC-DC conversion. Choosing the right PMIC can make a difference in whether the final product becomes ...

Plant Communicator

Ever wished you could talk with your plants? Story Introduction As the English poet William Wordsworth once said: "Your mind is the garden, your thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can be either flowers or weeds." Keeping your plants alive can be quite the challenge as they are very bad at communication. One way to keep them happy is to bring your plants with you, but maybe you don't want to lug around with ...
