Cashless parking: Windshield microchip to make it easier

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (Aug. 2, 2011) — Vacant parking spaces in town are thin on the ground. Finding one is just as tiresome as making sure you have the right change for the parking machine. An adhesive microchip on the windshield will make things much easier by unlocking the door to cashless parking.

The car moves slowly towards the car park exit, the barriers open automatically -- without the driver having to wind down the window and insert a ticket....

Electronic tongue identifies cava wines

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (July 28, 2011) — Researchers at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) have developed an electronic tongue which can identify different types of cava wines, thanks to a combination of sensor systems and advanced mathematical procedures. The device automatically produces classifications similar to those of a sommelier and can be useful in detecting defects during the elaboration of these wines.

Cava varies in type according to...

Computer-aided detection does not improve mammogram accuracy, study suggests

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (July 27, 2011) — Using computer-aided detection (CAD) software to help analyze and interpret mammograms does not improve accuracy, according to a study published online July 27 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

CAD software, used currently for analyzing three out of four mammograms in the United States, identifies patterns associated with breast cancers and marks potential abnormalities for the radiologist to...

Accident protection device for small cars

  • PDF
TechAndComputer (July 25, 2011) — Driver-assistance systems can help prevent accidents. Quite simply, the more a car knows about its surroundings, the more intelligently it can respond to them. Researchers have now developed an optical sensor for the windshield that can even tell the difference between fog and darkness.

The number of traffic fatalities on Germany's roads has steadily fallen in recent years. As studies show, this also owes to the...
