A software-defined radio system is a radio communication system where components that have been typically implemented in hardware (e.g. mixers, filters, amplifiers, modulators/demodulators, detectors, etc.) are instead implemented by means of software on a personal computer or embedded computing devices.
RoboEarth is a world-wide platform which robots can use to exchange position and map information as well as task-related, hardware independent action recipes. This will enable manufacturers worldwide to break down their costs and efforts for reproducing software algorithms for robot behavior over and over again.
The Distribution automation system (DAS) provides capabilities for a central server to collect operation data such as voltage and current, to monitor and control feeder remote terminal units (FRTU) which are dispersed in the remote areas, and to detect and restore faults automatically
Sensitive skin is a large-area, flexible array of sensors with data processing capabilities, which can be used to cover the entire surface of a machine or even a part of a human body.
Speech recognition is basically making a computer understand spoken language. Speech recognition is more and more useful now a days. Various interactive softwares are available in market today but they are useful for general-purpose computers.
Brain-computer interface(BCI) is a collaboration between a brain and a device that enables signals from the brain to direct some external activity, such as control of a cursor or a prosthetic limb the interface enables the direct communications path way between the brain and object to be controlled.
The size of nanorobots is about 100 times lesser than the size of an animal cell and hence it can easily monitor the behavior of cell inside the body of an HIV affected person. Nanorobots use nanosensors to sense the AIDS infected WBCs and convert them back into original WBCs.
