Using smartphone technology to assess cardiac health
The novel technology uses voltage-based method to differentiate cancerous from non-cancerous tissue and can detect a wide range of cancerous tissue in real-time.
Providing guarantees against risk of faults for autonomous systems
A robotic optical-biopsy scanning framework termed EndoDrone is proposed to improve the sensitivity of gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy by automated scanning and real-time classification of wide tissue areas based on optical data. A “hot-spot” map is generated to highlight dysplastic or cancerous lesions for further scrutiny or concurrent resection. The device works as an add-on accessory to any conventional endoscope and to our knowledge is the first of its kind. The current functional prototype, which uses hyperspectral (HS) optical biopsy, is compatible with the anatomical dimensions of the colon, is envisaged to allow the identification of flat and small precancerous lesions that are currently missed.
Simulated 26% decrease in surge mass flow rate, improving turbocharger transient response by up to 18%.
Hydrogenation of carbon dioxide (CO2); converting a greenhouse gas into added-value chemicals such as transportation fuels, harmful refrigeration replacements or binders.
New oil developed which provides wear reduction by 30% while maintaining peak performance of vehicle.
Increased exhaust gas recirculation, average turbine efficiency and brake specific fuel consumption.
Physical model to determine the forming limit diagram (FLD) using a biaxial tensile test system
Modelled aerodynamic testing indicates that turbocharger turbine average efficiency can be improved by 8 - 15 percentage points with the novel rotating nozzle ring.
