Low Cost Fuel

Oak Ridge National Laboratory, U.S. Department of Energy, has developed a technology to turn ethanol into fuels for high-end applications. Vertimass LLC scaled up this newly invented technology. The fuel produced is suitable for use in the shipping and aviation industries. The price of the fuel expected to be competitive with regards to conventional fuels. The new technology will also holds the benefits of sustainability of bio-based ethanol.   Oak

Stealth Attacks on Robotic Vehicles Reveal Loopholes of its Design

A study by the University of British Columbia indicates that robotic vehicles such as Mars rovers or Amazon delivery drones could be hacked easily. It is a lot easier to hack than many people could even think of.   Meanwhile, the researchers from the department of applied science, University of British Columbia, developed three different types of secret attack. The design was to mount an attack on robotic vehicles, which resulted

Hybrid Motors

A team of researchers from the CMT-Thermal Engines Institute, the Polytechnic University of Valencia, suggests that a new configuration. This new configuration could bring in all the advantages of hybrid motors together with the technology of dual-fuel combustion. Meanwhile, researchers in the Polytechnic University of Valencia are striving to obtain less contaminating yet more effective combustion engines. The focus of the research is hybrid motors.  Outcome of the Research Draws

artificial intelligence

A new research details how an automated system powered by artificial intelligence can lead to the efficacious production of lycopene. Lycopene is a red-color pigment present in tomatoes in abundance. The wide use of lycopene lies as a food colorant. This opens new vistas for its application in several biosynthetic applications. The study shows how an automated system can learn, test, build, and design complicated biochemical pathways to make lycopene.

Chip

Engineers at the University of California, San Diego have invented a power saving chip. This would considerably lessen or completely do away with the need to replace batteries in devices and gadgets running on Internet of Things (IoT). The wake-up receiver wakes up a gadget or a wearable only when needed to do its chores or communicate. It also enables the gadget to remain dormant for the rest of the
