This tool has been developed by scientists from the University of Cornell in the U.S. that will measure the pupil size and then capture it through a gust of photographs, which are taken

Researchers of Tata Communications Reveals Perception of IoT for Different Generations

The senior vice-president and the head of Internet of Things, Tata Communications, VS Shridhar said that, the youth of India has been inspired with the increasing use of the Internet of Things and its potential in order to automate their domestic environments. However, it represents almost a fraction of potential of the Internet of Things to transform the complete society. In addition to this, the Internet of Things holds immense

Researchers Come up with Novel Method to Create Solution Processable Nanosheets

Duan and Huang, researchers form Hunan University, along with Austin Texas and UCLA have built up a novel strategy for creating enhanced MoS2 semiconducting nanosheets utilizing solution handling. In this methodology, 2D MoS2 gems are electrochemically intercalated with different vast natural ammonium salts to shape nanosheets, which can be thusly defined into an ink solution with capacity up to 20 mg/mL. Their methodology, published in the journal called Nature, includes

Researchers Provide Knowledge Platform for Apps Detecting Transport Mode

As reported by a new study, published in the Journal of ACM, apps will soon be able to detect the transportation mode used by commuters and intelligently provide relevant information, tips and advice. The researchers say that machine learning techniques that were developed in a global competition could result in smartphones being able to predict the road conditions and level of traffic, provide efficient recommendation for routes and parking, and

ARL Designs Algorithm to Track Soldiers without Using GPS

Soldiers working in remote or challenged conditions don’t generally get the dependably predictable GPS signal that regular people finding their way to an eatery have turned out to be utilized to. In the field, warfighters may need to manage intricate, jumbled situations that can hinder or jam signals. They additionally must be set up in the event that an enemy jams signals or even annihilates the satellites vital for GPS
