This article discusses various artificial intelligence (AI) technologies that are helping the customer service team improve their performances and businesses. The customer service team is required to keep customers happy and delightful
Renewable Energy
Now Energy Can Be Harvested From Shadows
Scientists have come up with a new device called shadow-effect energy generator (SEG), which makes use of the contrast in illumination to harvest energy under weak ambient light. This article covers the architecture and application of SEG in energy generation
 
Software
Interrupt-Based Bootloader Design For Embedded System Updates
A bootloader helps to update a system’s software without a dedicated programmer. It also solves the purpose of feature enhancement. This article covers how to manage interrupts between the bootloader and application software in case the relocation of the interrupt vector table (IVT) is not allowed
Test & Measurement
Battery Testing For Robotic Applications
In today’s world, robots are used to perform several types of tasks that were earlier performed by humans. Because batteries are the power source of robots, it is important not to take them for granted and regularly monitor and accurately test their health. Testing and measurement can provide information on whether batteries are fully charged, their current performance, safety maintenance, and much more
 
Deep Learning
Fruit Classification And Quality Detection Using Deep Convolutional Neural Network
Soon we can make a portable application that takes pictures of fruits and labels them accordingly
Innovation
Need For Touchless Technologies To Safeguard Against Viruses
We have intelligent devices like smartphones, smart TVs, computers, and robots in use that need not be touched for operation. In fact, many more things need to be operated without touching through voice control and gestures, etc, such as ATM machines and check-in counters at airports
 
Digital
Europe’s Many Innovative Ecosystems
This article discusses the different paths taken by the member countries of the European Union towards digitalisation, which have led to massive growth and progress of people as well as technologies
Computing
Solid-State Drive: Ubiquitous Device In Making
With the tsunami of data in every application, a highly efficient data storage drive is going to be the de facto choice for all future gadgets starting from mobiles, laptops, and mini/microservers to high-performance computing systems
 
Healthcare
Are UV Sterilisers Effective In Combating Covid-19
One can claim that the worst will be over only when a reliable vaccine is available. Until then there is not much one can do beyond maintaining physical distance from others, wearing a face mask, and washing hands frequently
Bionics
Robotic Exoskeletons: From Fiction To Reality
Exoskeletons are ideal for use in almost every industry, including medical, agriculture, automobile, construction, manufacturing, and so on. These can help people maintain fitness and prevent health issues as well as help those who face hardships in performing daily tasks
 
Design
Latest DC-DC Converters For Automotive And Industrial Applications
Some latest DC-DC converters are introduced here, along with the basic and new features, so that designers can select the best devices for their applications
Design
Comparing Isolated Amplifiers And Isolated Modulators
This article covers the major differences between isolated amplifier-based and isolated modulator-based solutions, and explains their uses in improving the overall efficiency and power throughput in various industrial and automotive applications
 
Design
Touchless Sense Switch To Combat Covid-19
Due to the outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic, a new technology called touchless sense switch (TSS) has been introduced, which helps read human inputs without touching any equipment or switch panel. Each button/switch that needs human input through physical touch can be replaced with a sensing area activated by TSS whose broad designing process is described here
Do-It-Yourself
Smart 230V AC Bulb Holder
The smart 230V AC bulb holder introduced here is an ultra-simple device with an automatic electric bulb controller switch and a standard electric bulb holder realised with the help of a few inexpensive and easily available components
 
Do-It-Yourself
Line Follower Robot Using PID Algorithm
A line follower is a simple robot that follows a thick line drawn on the floor using infrared (IR) or some other optical sensors. This line follower robot uses two motors with wheels on the rear and a castor wheel as support on the front
Do-It-Yourself
A Simple Timer Based On Arduino Uno
Presented here is a simple timer built around an Arduino Uno board. It can be used to measure the time delay duration of devices like timer relays, circuit breakers, and other sequential logic circuits. This timer will be a low-cost solution for laboratory/industrial requirements
 
Do-It-Yourself
Motion Sensor With Voice Alarm Using Arduino
Motion sensor alarms are readily available in the market, but these are expensive. Here is a simple and inexpensive Arduino based motion sensor alarm with voice alert. It can be used for security purposes
Do-It-Yourself
Gesture-Controlled Contactless Switch For Smart Home
To avoid the risk of contracting Covid-19, it is important not to touch surfaces including switches, doorknobs, and keys that have been frequently used by other people. This project is for a contactless switch that works with hand gestures
 
Do-It-Yourself
NeoPixel Colour-Changing LED Lighting Using Arduino
This NeoPixel LED lighting based on WS2811 driver and Arduino digitally produces red, green, and blue (RGB) lights and the combinations. Originally introduced by Adafruit, the LED strips come with driver ICs that are addressable and programmable
