ROHM develops sensor IC for high-speed heart rate measurement

first_img Continue Reading Previous Kontron: new DIN Rail industrial computer series KBox A-15xNext congatec: COM Express Type 6 module with AMD Ryzen embedded processors ROHM is offering an optical heart rate sensor for smart bands and watches, which, thanks to its high-speed 1024 Hz sampling, can be used for measuring blood pressure, stress and vascular age. The BH1792GLC is the second pulse wave sensor to be developed by ROHM. It is notable for its high detection accuracy and low power consumption of only 0.44mA during measurement. The 1024Hz sampling rate makes it possible to measure the heart rate up to 32 times faster than conventional solutions.The BH1792GLC measures just 2.8x 2.8 x 0.9mm. In addition to measuring the heart rate, an infrared sensor makes it possible to detect when the device is being worn. An integrated FIFO memory helps to reduce the power consumption on the host side, which in turn decreases the power consumed by the sensor and increases the application drive time. The heart rate sensor works with supply voltages from 2.5 to 3.6V. Its operating temperature range is between -20 and +85°C. The BH1792GLC is the ideal solution for smart bands, watches, smartphones and other portable devices requiring vital sign sensing. Samples and OEM quantities of the BH1792GLC have been available since December 2017.An evaluation board (BH1792GLC-EVK-001) for use with the heart rate sensor is available from the online distributors Chip One Stop, Zyco Store (Core Staff) and RS Components, which can be connected via the ROHM sensor shield with open platform MCU boards such as Arduino Uno.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components last_img read more

Dyson’s new 360 Eye robot just made vacuums cool

first_imgIf you’re anything like us, you probably think something so mundane as a vacuum cleaner could never evoke that “gotta have it” feeling common with other technological wonders. However, the latest creation from the suction-obsessed mind of James Dyson proves that, when it comes to the radical future of robotic devices, anything is possible.The folks at Dyson unveiled the new smart vacuum, the 360 Eye, before a crowd of onlookers at IFA this week in Berlin, invoking nothing less than amazement. A vision that’s been 16 years in the making, the shiny silver contraption brings brains, brawn, and brilliance to the genre, making manual vacuuming (or sweeping) of any kind a thing of the past. Honestly, all we need now is a lawnmower built under the same specs, and weekend chores will be cut in half.The cool little bot sports some very impressive tech that makes it tick. On board is the same cyclonic suction engine that gives the standard Dyson its claim to fame, assuring problematic carpet parasites like fleas, bacteria, and dirt are unlikely to stick around in your shag. And perhaps even more appealing, carbon fiber bristles allow the device to sweep dust off of hard floors as well, essentially allowing you to clean your entire pad without lifting a finger.The machine rolls around on tank-like treads so it can make it’s way over almost any surface, and the great “eye” on the top, in the form of a panoramic camera, gives it a 360 degree view of its surroundings. The lens can then shoot the room in search of obstructions, and triangulate them with its on board computer to figure out where it’s going, and where it’s been. The smart mapping assures the device will tackle the entire floor, and avoid potential pitfalls that might keep it slamming into walls for hours, as can happen with some other robotic vacuums.Other futuristic features include an app so you can control the vacuum and survey its progress while away from home with your smartphone, and a high-speed digital motor that makes it the most powerful robotic vacuum on the market.The Eye 360 is currently slated for a 2015 Japanese release at present, with no stateside dates announced. Dyson also hasn’t released pricing yet, but with something this useful, does it really matter? We know what we’ll be saving up for.

HII Receives Contract Extension for Aircraft Carrier …

first_imgzoom Huntington Ingalls Industries’ Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) division has received a $1.295 billion extension to a previously awarded construction preparation contract for the aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy (CVN 79).The contract extension enables NNS to complete an additional 343 structural units and purchase the majority of the remaining material for the ship, including items such as valves, controllers, pumps and raw materials.NNS has performed work on John F. Kennedy since Jan. 15, 2009, under a construction preparation contract that allows engineering, planning, material procurement and initial manufacturing to begin before the full construction contract is awarded.“This additional funding helps us maintain our positive momentum with savings initiatives and pre-construction in advance of the construction contract that is expected later this year,” said Mike Shawcross, Newport News’ vice president, CVN 79 construction. “In addition to increasing the number of structural units under contract, it allows the CVN 79 procurement team to place purchase orders for most of the remaining material for the ship, which helps us meet our efficiency objectives through economic order quantities and consolidated buys. It also ensures that lessons learned, best practices and production efficiencies from building Gerald R. Ford can continue to be implemented at the most optimal time, providing a smooth transition to the second ship of the Ford class.”Ford-class enhancements incorporated into the design include flight deck changes, improved weapons handling systems and a redesigned island, all resulting in increased aircraft sortie-generation rates.Kennedy will also feature new nuclear power plants, increased electrical power-generation capacity, allowance for future technologies, and reduced workload for sailors, translating to a smaller crew size and reduced operating costs for the Navy.

MoroccanCanadian Athlete Turned Away at US Border

By Constance RentonToronto – 19-year-old athlete, Yassine Aber, was turned away at the US border, after being detained for 5 hours, despite possessing a valid Canadian passport.Born to Moroccan parents, Aber was born and raised in Quebec and has lived in Canada all of his life. Travelling with his athletic team on Thursday, the kinesiology student from the University of Sherbrooke, was headed south of the border for a sports competition. Accompanied by his coach and 5 other teammates, Yassine Aber arrived at customs at 1:30pm on Thursday. According to CBC’s Radio Canada online, Yassine, the only Arab individual in the group, was asked by customs officials for his cellphone and his password. Photographs and fingerprints of Aber were taken before he was ultimately turned back told he did not have the required paperwork.His Canadian passport, which should have been all that he required to cross the border, was not enough this time. “They took me twice to an office with an agent. They made me fill in papers and made me talk about myself, where I come from, where I was born. At the end of the day, they told me they I could not enter the United States.”When asked how he felt about the experience, Aber said “The reasons are somewhat ambiguous. I have an official paper that says I did not have valid papers, passports or immigration visas. My passport is Canadian and it is valid until 2026. I tried to get more information, but they did not want to give me any.”According to the same source, though people have been quick to blame the incident on the controversy caused by the Trump ban, Aber is reluctant to make the connection.“I do not know if it’s really that, the reason. I do not want to accuse anyone,” he said. Meanwhile his team and his university are hard at work determining the best way to make sure this incident will not be repeated in the future. read more

UN team inspects former chemical weapons facility in Iraq

During past visits to the site before the 1998 suspension of the UN arms probe, thousands of CW shells and agents had been destroyed by the UN. Dimitri Perricos, the leader of the UN Monitoring, Verification and Inspections Commission (UNMOVIC) inspection team, told reporters today that experts wanted to know if some shells containing mustard gas, which were left out at the site, were still stored there. Mr. Perricos said that in fact the team had found the shells stored at the site.Speaking for the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Jacques Baute said his team had conducted an inspection today at the Tuwaitha site run by the Iraqi Atomic Energy Agency. The experts inspected several major areas at the site for about five hours in order to review changes that had taken place since December 1998. Those changes included construction or rehabilitation of some buildings, movement of equipment, and changes in areas of responsibility for site personnel.Most of the observed changes had been recorded in the backlog of Iraq’s own semi-annual declarations that Baghdad submitted to the IAEA on 1 October. Mr. Baute added that the inspection team had been able to carry out all the activities it decided to conduct, with Iraqi cooperation.Asked about a statement by the Iraqi Foreign Minister voicing concern about the attitude of UN weapons inspectors, Mr. Perricos said that Iraq had accepted Security Council resolution 1441, and therefore all sites in the country could be subject to inspection. This Presidential Palace was a presidential guesthouse and the team was looking for documents and other records used just for weapons of mass destruction.In response to a question on the upcoming Iraqi declaration, Mr. Baute said that all Iraqi declarations were important. It would be one component of our knowledge. Other knowledge came from documents and additional information provided by others.Responding to another question on the practicality of increasing the number of weapons inspectors, Mr. Perricos said that “we will be using a multiplicity of teams, utilizing multiple disciplines” to conduct weapons inspection in the coming weeks.Asked about achievements so far, Mr. Perricos said that his team, which so far had conducted inspections for only one week, had implemented the original inspection plan. Mr. Baute added that his team now had better knowledge in the areas of their concern and would accelerate their activities with more inspectors. In response to a question on reports that the United States is planning to compare the Iraqi declaration against its own intelligence, Mr. Perricos said that national intelligence had more information, and that his team had not used that type of information yet.Meanwhile in New York, UNMOVIC’s quarterly report to the Security Council was issued today. The report notes that the first team of experts already in Iraq will be followed by additional groups of inspectors drawn from the Commission’s roster of trained professionals. UNMOVIC chief Hans Blix is scheduled to present the report to the Council on Friday during consultations. read more

Investments key for longterm resilience rebuilding agriculture in Haiti – UN agency

“If we don’t invest today, we will pay the price tomorrow,” said Director-General José Graziano da Silva. Speaking at a joint press conference with Haitian President Michel Martelly at FAO Headquarters in Rome yesterday, Mr. Graziano da Silva pledged to support Haiti through interventions that address the country’s immediate crisis situations as well as the root causes of its food insecurity and poverty. FAO and the Haitian Government are currently seeking $74 million over the next 12 months to help long-term resilience in the country. The funds would be used to rehabilitate irrigation schemes and rural access roads; restore local seed production; provide seeds, fertilizer and agricultural tools to small farmers; support inland fisheries; and vaccinate livestock, among other activities. The funds would also go towards helping farmers plant crops for the next planting season which starts in December.Mr. Graziano da Silva said the objective is “to make Haitians, especially farmers, more resilient to climate and other challenges.” Last month, Hurricane Sandy caused significant damage to Haiti’s crops, land, livestock, fisheries and rural infrastructures. It killed 60 people and flooded, destroyed or damaged some 18,000 homes, as well as hospitals, schools and public buildings.It was the third disaster to hit Haiti in the space of a few months. Between May and June, a severe drought struck at the beginning of the critical spring cropping season, and in August, Tropical Storm Isaac battered the country, displacing thousands of people. Together, the three disasters left two million Haitians at risk of food insecurity and resulted in losses of $254 million to the agricultural sector.“If we don’t intervene quickly, over 60 per cent of the population deriving their livelihood from agriculture will be put at risk,” said FAO Assistant Director-General for Technical Cooperation Laurent Thomas. Out of the $74 million sought, FAO has so far secured $2.7 million, with indications of a further $5 million-$6 million from different donors. The agency will also implement short- and medium-term projects in response to the current crisis, ranging from immediate relief activities to interventions that have a longer-term economic and environmental impact. read more

Mourinhos allout war against the English press

first_imgPortuguese manager Jose Mourinho is not happy with the way the English press has treated him lately, which is why he is completely against then now.There is a lot of turmoil at Manchester United with Jose Mourinho right now, the English press is having a field day after the Red Devils lost their second match of the Premier League season against Brighton & Hove Albion and this has resulted in the manager’s negative reaction. Right after the match last week, the boss specifically told the press that he wouldn’t take any questions from the press because all they do is criticize his players but the members of the media criticize him. The players are to blame for the team’s results, but the top responsible for the squad’s lack of results is him. As a response to everything he’s read during the week from many outlets, the manager’s response was one that really angered many members of the local press and they will get their revenge through written words. Jose offered a press conference this Friday before next Sunday’s Premier League match between Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, what happened during the presser was unexpected. Mourinho’s latest antics against the media.The manager himself told the media that there was a certain time in which he would offer a press conference, but to the surprise of many he arrived a full half an hour earlier than expected and only a few members of the press were able to ask him any questions in an exchange that lasted only a little over four minutes. This is a direct attack to all the outlets that have criticized the manager for his poor results of late, Jose Mourinho doesn’t agree with most of them and feels like they are inventing things that never happened in order to get more readers. But many of the members from the press who have talked about the manager’s bust-ups with players like Paul Pogba or Anthony Martial, have reliable sources from inside the club that witnessed those fight and they work for respected media outlets that would fire them if they felt the information was untrue.⏰ Turned up 30 minutes early to his press conference…? So most of the media would not be present.? Answered 13 questions in 4 minutes with 2 or 3 word replies.? He then got up and left.?? Jose Mourinho, Ladies & Gentlemen. pic.twitter.com/JivrIYTAxi— SPORF (@Sporf) August 24, 2018Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedSolskjaer praises Harry Maguire after Man United’s 1-0 win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled out Harry Maguire for praise after helping Manchester United keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win over Leicester City.The real reason Mourinho is angry at the world.It’s a number of reasons really, the Portuguese manager is most angry towards club vice-chairman Ed Woodward. Jose thinks that the way in which Manchester United is going about signing new players this summer is the reason they are not getting results, he was especially fuming when he realized that he wouldn’t be able to sign defender Harry Maguire from Leicester City after the England international’s amazing World Cup performance. The boss really believes that the Red Devils’ weakest point is their defense and he doesn’t think the squad can win any trophies this season without new arrivals who can cover that position. The relationship between Mourinho and Woodward has reached a very important obstacle that may end with one of the two getting sacked by Manchester United’s high command, but we still don’t know who will be the one that leaves. Mourinho doesn’t feel like he is doing a bad job this early in the season, which is another reason he is angry at the media for being so harsh on him.José Mourinho has told friends he would have quit any other club by now. The Man Utd boss is said to be deeply frustrated by what he sees as a lack of backing from vice-chairman Ed Woodward. (Source: Daily Mirror) pic.twitter.com/Z0yrpIxUm9— Transfer News Live (@DeadlineDayLive) August 24, 2018The players are letting him down.This is a sensation that only Jose Mourinho has at this moment, because the players who are not in good terms with the boss feel exactly the same towards him, they feel like he is the one letting them down. The situation with Paul Pogba the most complicated as we have reported lately, but there are other wars that Jose has with more players and the press just hasn’t picked up on all of them. What he is trying to do by arriving early to an important press conference like today, is also protecting himself from any more information that could potentially leak and damage his situation with the club any further. Mourinho is already having a really hard time trying to put out the many fires inside the club, he thinks that having the press’ magnifying glass is not helping him one bit and he will do anything to stop them. Obviously, today’s decision to leave many of the media members out of the loop will have repercussions, this war is just getting started.Short but sweet from Jose Mourinho. pic.twitter.com/JDzmzcSn68— BBC Sport (@BBCSport) August 24, 2018What do you think the English press should do after the latest of Jose Mourinho’s antics?

We’re very happy with the squad we have.”City will next face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this Saturday in the Premier League.last_img read more

As a result, they’ve discovered a few interesting factoids.  But first the genome itself. The great white shark’s genome contains one and a half times the amount of information compared to a human genome (they have 41 pairs of chromosomes, whereas humans have 23). Sharks also feature a number of genetic changes that speak to the success of the shark from an evolutionary perspective.For example, relatively speaking, great white sharks are better than humans at not getting cancer. Given their size and lifespan (great white sharks can live up to 70 years in the wild) scientists were surprised at how resilient great white sharks were against cancer. This is partly to do with the great white shark’s genome stability. Simply put: The great white has genetic adaptations that help preserve the genome.Sharks are also well known for their regenerative abilities. In short: Great white sharks heal extremely quickly. The key to their success in this area can also be found in their genes.”We found positive selection and gene content enrichments involving several genes tied to some of the most fundamental pathways in wound healing, including in a key blood clotting gene,” said Michael Stanhope, Ph.D., of Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. “These adaptations involving wound healing genes may underlie the vaunted ability of sharks to heal efficiently from even large wounds.”There is potential for scientists to use these findings and apply the learnings to potential cancer drugs in the future. 9center_img Tags Marvel at a sea of award-winning underwater photos Sci-Tech Culturelast_img read more
