Bio-composite

A team of researchers has recently created a new bio-composite material using date palm fiber biomass, which is potential for sustainable, lightweight, and low-cost applications in automotive and marine industries for non-structural parts such as door linings and car bumpers. Unlike synthetic composites reinforced by glass and carbon fibers, the polycaprolactone (PCL) bio-composite reinforced by date palm fiber is completely renewable, recyclable, biodegradable, and sustainable, according to researchers whose work has

Preserve

Researchers at Penn State claimed that grain bran contains a ‘natural antioxidant’ that could preserve food longer and potentially replace synthetic antioxidants currently used in food industries across the globe. Currently, there is a big push within the food industry to adopt natural ingredients over the synthetic variants, mainly driven by the consumers, doctoral candidate Andrew S. Elder said. There has been an increasing demand for clean labels, the consumers

Attention

In a recent study, researchers at the University of Queensland (UQ) made new discoveries on how the brain induces the ability to rapidly focus attention. The human brains are consistently loaded with information from the senses, but the level of attentiveness to such input differs, enabling an individual to concentrate on a conversation and not on another. According to Stephen Williams, Professor at UQ’s Queensland Brain Institute, when one wants

Intellectual Property

China to allow victims of intellectual property infringements to sue for damages, state media reported on Monday, as Beijing seeks for ways to strengthen its intellectual Property protection framework, with US demanding for action on the issue. According to Xinhua news agency reports, a draft law – under which the victims can file for ‘punitive damages’ – was presented at a meeting of the Standing Committee of the National People’s

New Pilots

Learning a new language may not be an easy task in any setting. It becomes more difficult for new pilots as they have to learn the language of the sky, while simultaneously navigating the instrument panel and learning to fly the aircraft safely. Recently, two alumni of Purdue University have proposed a new technology that can help new pilots easily learn radio communication skills and enhance their interaction with air

Plastic Waste

Researchers at the Lund University have made new discoveries that plastic waste in the environment degenerates into nano-sized particles called ‘nanoplastics’. In order to mimic the degradation of plastic in the ocean, the researcher subjected takeaway coffee cup lids to mechanical breakdown. Most of the marine debris is plastic and calculations have revealed that around 10 percent of all plastic produced worldwide ends up in the sea. Such plastic waste

High-energy Magnesium Batteries

A new version of high-energy magnesium batteries may find promising applications in wide range of electric vehicles and battery storage for renewable energy systems, according to researchers at University of Houston (UH) and the Toyota Research Institute of America. The new high-energy magnesium batteries, detailed in the recent issue of journal Joule, has been reported to use an organic electrode, while operating with limited electrolytes. The researchers said that such

Aggressive Driving

A team of researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology has proposed an innovative framework for aggressive driving using wheel speed sensors, IMU sensors, and a monocular camera. According to the researchers, it is a combination of deep-learning based road detection, model predictive control (MPC), and particle filters, and has been detailed in a paper appearing on arXiv. As it has become essential to understand the extremity of autonomous driving, the

Self-driving Car Testing

Uber Technologies Inc. received a green light from Pennsylvania officials this week to resume its self-driving car testing on public roads. Nine months ago, the program was suspended, following an accident which killed a pedestrian in Tempe, Arizona. An Uber spokeswoman said on Tuesday it had not restarted the self-driving car testing. According to The Information, Pennsylvania’s Department of Transportation (PennDOT) approved Uber’s request –made last month – to begin

Neurons

In a recent study, researchers have discovered a novel way to monitor changes and observe ion fluxes, by examining the characteristics of water molecules surrounding the neural membranes. The research team at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) have tested the method on in vitro neurons of mouse and published their findings in the journal Nature Communications. Neurons in the brain communicate with each other through the electrochemical signals
