Intelligent Senses: Cyborg Locusts and First Humanoid Robot with Intelligent Vision

Did you know that locusts can smell explosives? Did you also know that we can now control their brains to pinpoint to exactly what they are smelling? In this week’s podcast, we start things off with a closer look at how two teams of research scientists created a set of specialized cyborg bomb-sniffing locusts. We check out how these locusts are able to sense explosive chemicals in the air, how they are able to track these explosive smells, and how we can now identify exactly what they are smelling by reading their brain waves. Also this week, Alessandro Gasparini and Alain Pacquin (Immervision) join us to discuss JOYCE: the first humanoid robot for the computer vision community. We discuss the details of how Immervision and their partners will enable JOYCE to have human perceptions and how design contests will assist with the evolution of this first-of-her-kind humanoid robot.

Flexible Power for a Smart World

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and CUI Inc.

Safety, EMC compliance, your project schedule, and your BOM cost are all important factors when you are considering what power supply you will need for your next design. You also need to think about form factor, which capacitor will work best, and more. But if you’re not a power supply expert, this can get overwhelming in a hurry. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Ron Stull from CUI Inc. about CUI PBO Single Output Board Mount AC-DC Power Supplies, what this ac/dc core brings to the table in terms of form factor, reliability and performance, and why this kind of solution may give you the flexibility you need to optimize your next design.
