Measurement of temperature and relative humidity using DHT11 sensor and PIC microcontroller using PIC16F628A

Measurement and control of temperature and relative humidity finds applications in numerous areas. These days devices are available which have both temperature and humidity sensors with signal conditioning, ADC, calibration and communication interface all built inside them. The use of such smart sensors greatly simplify the design and reduces the overall cost. We discussed in …

MIT RESEARCHERS DEVELOP A $10 WEARABLE PATCH TO HELP PEOPLE SUFFERING FROM ALS COMMUNICATE BETTER

MIT RESEARCHERS DEVELOP A $10 WEARABLE PATCH TO HELP PEOPLE SUFFERING FROM ALS COMMUNICATE BETTER

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a chronic disease that affects the nervous system and causes a decline in muscle control. Symptoms of ALS may be minor in the early stages of the disease but get dramatically worse with time as people with ALS find it more and more difficult to control the muscles necessary to speak or …

ST TO MAKE CARTRIDGES FOR COVID-19 TESTS

ST TO MAKE CARTRIDGES FOR COVID-19 TESTS

STMicroelectronics is to manufacture cartridges for a multi-sample lab-on-a-chip test system developed by Alifax in Italy. By Nick Flaherty @ eenewseurope.com The move extends ST’s manufacturing from packaging the microfluidics lab-on-a-chip device to making the whole cartridge, which measures 46.9mm x 21.9mm x 8.2mm, at its backend plant in Malta. Alifax then adds the chemical reagents …

Capacitive Sensing Robot Arm

Introduction For our final project, we built a 2 axis robot arm with a capacitive sensor on the final member, which will allow the robot to detect a person near the robot. When there is an object detected, the arm will stop depending on the measured capacitance. The purpose of this type of sensor is …
