There's a rush in the U.S. to find key components of cellphones, televisions, weapons systems, wind turbines, MRI machines, and the regenerative brakes in hybrid cars, and old mine tailings piles just might be the answer. They may contain a group of versatile minerals the periodic table called rare earth elements.
One of TCP's main functions is to prevent network congestion by regulating the rate at which computers send data. In the last 25 years, engineers have made steady improvements to TCP's congestion-control algorithms, resulting in several competing versions of the protocol: Many Windows computers, for instance, run a version called Compound TCP, while Linux machines run a version called TCP Cubic.
InfoMotion focuses on the repetitive motions seen in a variety of sports to build algorithms around them, pattern them, and create small sensors that can measure point-of-force activities in a variety of sporting drills. The 94Fifty sensor basketball also utilizes technology from Texas Instruments including Bluetooth/Bluetooth low energy dual-mode connectivity.
