Tongue Analysis Software Developed at MU Uses Ancient Chinese Medicine to Warn of Disease

May 29, 2012 6:04 am | Comments

For 5,000 years, the Chinese have used a system of medicine based on the flow and balance of positive and negative energies in the body. In this system, the appearance of the tongue is one of the measures used to classify the overall physical status of the body, or zheng . Now, University of Missouri researchers have developed computer software that combines the ancient practices and modern medicine by providing an automated system for analyzing images of the tongue.

NTU and I²R Scientists Invent Revolutionary Chipset for High-speed Wireless Data Transfer

May 29, 2012 5:37 am | by Here is a new microchip that can transfer data the size of 80 MP3 song files (or 250 megabytes) wirelessly between mobile devices, in the flick of a second. | Comments

Data can now be transmitted 1,000 times faster than Bluetooth Or how about transferring a typical 2-hour, 8-gigabyte DVD movie in just half a minute compared to 8.5 hours on Bluetooth? Such unprecedented speeds on the wireless platform are now a reality as scientists from the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and A*STAR’s Institute for Infocomm Research (I²R) have developed a revolutionary microchip that can transmit large volumes of data at ultra-high speeds of 2 Gigabits per second  (or 1,000 times faster than Bluetooth^).

Sensing the Infrared: Researchers Improve IR Detectors with Single-walled Carbon Nanotubes

May 29, 2012 5:20 am | Comments

Whether used in telescopes or optoelectronic communications, infrared detectors must be continuously cooled to avoid being overwhelmed by stray thermal radiation. Now, a team of researchers from Peking University, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Duke University (USA) is harnessing the remarkable properties of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) to create highly sensitive, "uncooled" photovoltaic infrared detectors.

Protocol Enables Wireless and Secure Biometric Acquisition with Web Services

May 23, 2012 5:21 am | Comments

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed and published a new protocol for communicating with biometric sensors over wired and wireless networks—using some of the same technologies that underpin the web. The new protocol, called WS-Biometric Devices (WS-BD), allows desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones to access sensors that capture biometric data such as fingerprints, iris images and face images using web services.

Getting in Tune: Researchers Solve Tuning Problem For Wireless Power Transfer Systems

May 23, 2012 5:19 am | by Researchers have shown that it is possible to transmit power wirelessly by using magnetic resonance. Even minor changes in how the transmitter or receiver is tuned, however, can result in faulty power transmission. | Comments

Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new way to fine-tune wireless power transfer (WPT) receivers, making the systems more efficient and functional. WPT systems hold promise for charging electric vehicles, electronic devices and other technologies. A new prototype developed at NC State addresses the problem by automatically – and precisely – re-tuning the receivers in WPT systems.
