To address the growing electronic waste stream resulting from unwanted devices, a team in India has created an incentive-based management system using 5G and blockchain that tracks and monitors an electronic product throughout its entire lifecycle, from the point of manufacturing to the point a product is properly disposed.
Similar to human drivers, adverse weather conditions still pose as a major obstacle for autonomous vehicles (AVs). Using a deep learning framework, researchers have developed a new detection and tracking system aimed at solving how AVs “see” their surroundings.
Without archaeological investigations, many of the historical sites we know today would remain a mystery. Using VR and AI, researchers have developed a system to revolutionize how archaeologists discover ancient civilizations
Mobility continues to be one of the greatest challenges for smart cities, so researchers have developed a system that not only improves current transportation management but also expands the opportunities for building better-connected cities.
After a six-month space journey, two rovers and one orbiter sent by three countries are set to make history as they touchdown on Mars. As history shows though, navigating the planet is no easy task.
Many vaccines, like those for COVID-19, must be kept cold. To prevent waste and breaches in the cold chain system, researchers have developed an IoT monitoring system that tracks the temperature and location of vaccines from the manufacturing plant to the patient's arm.
As e-commerce companies look to modernize fulfilment centers, researchers believe drones could be the next phase of logistics and inventory management to streamline operations.
Combining IoT and social networks, researchers have developed a social platform to help smart objects interact and form relationships with each other.
Dental diseases affect more than half of the world's population. Using AI and IoT, researchers have developed a smart home-based dental solution that can diagnose problems earlier.
During holiday shopping season, retailers must ensure they don’t just draw shoppers online, but convert them into buyers. Using predictive analytics, researchers believe they can identify the best customers seconds after shoppers get online, enabling improved targeting for promotions.
