Blockchain for a safe and maintainable train traffic management
We envision a future Blockchain-enabled railway management system, where all assets on the rail are “smart”, able to communicate and take decisions by themselves. We are building an H0 scale miniature landscape that mimics a real railway setting. All the assets in this model (locomotives, train detectors, switches, signals) are smart nodes built around a Raspberry Pi microcontroller. Above this infrastructure, a distributed software framework implements the Blockchain protocol. The results of this research will show whether a Blockchain-enabled self-organized rail management system can prevent critical situations and anticipate regular maintenances in a more efficient way.
The intelligent boxing bag for immediate, accurate, and reliable monitoring of impact force Strike-f(x) is an intelligent boxing bag for immediate, accurate, and reliable monitoring of impact force. Strike-f(x) is designed to give individuals total freedom of movement – to punch, kick, knee, tackle – and, yet, have accurate and reliable feedback about the force, […]
Non-invasive, continuous glucose monitoring Diabetes has reached epidemic proportions worldwide. The first step in patient care is to regularly monitor glucose. The conventional approach requires blood samples and is therefore invasive and uncomfortable for patients. GlucoEasy aims to demonstrate an innovation in non-invasive glucose detection. Our long term vision is to develop smart wearables for […]
Reading the color code of molecules To analyse substances, we look at the “color” of the infrared light that is reflected from them. This is called the molecular spectrum. It gives a sort of fingerprint identification for that specific molecule. This fingerprint, especially of large molecules (f.e. biological molecules and special functions in those molecules) […]
