    Digital technology changing the role of sensors in industry


    An interesting article from Control Magazine on how sensor intelligence is changing the industrial process landscape. We have been seeing a move towards 'edge' intelligence for the past decade. As electronics continue to improve in processing power and reduce the overall footprint, there has never been a bigger opportunity to exploit the ability to carry out pre-processing of data, before it moves to the next stage. This enhances real-time decision-making by reducing overall system latency....

  • New Study from UC San Diego for Covid-19 Wastewater Surveillance
    by [email protected]
    A Study from UC San Diego Shows Covid-19 Can Be Detected In A Single Asymptomatic Person Through Wastewater Surveillance even if that person is living or working in a multi-unit dwelling. Wastewater surveillance can detect a case up to 3 to 4 days before individual testing can. Wastewater surveillance is an underused yet cost-effective, non-invasive mass testing strategy.
