LVDTs offer feedback for monitoring flight parameters of UAVs

LVDTs offer feedback for monitoring flight parameters of UAVs
Unmanned drones require a variety of sensors to monitor different critical measurements to control flight and maintain aircraft stability. Miniature Linear Position Sensors from NewTek Sensor Solutions provide reliable position feedback for monitoring the fin/rudder position and rotor angle of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) with quick response times so UAVs can make adjustments to accurately control flight.

Cyborg cockroach may save your life one day!

Cyborg cockroach may save your life one day!
A cockroach no bigger than a large paper clip scurries across the floor of Abhishek Dutta’s lab at the University of Connecticut. Some scientists might be shocked to see such a notorious visitor occupying their research space. But not Dutta. He watches intently as the roach moves left, and then right, then left again, as it traverses the cool tile floor. His interest is well-founded, for he is the one initiating the tiny creature’s movements with a small handheld device about 15ft away.
