Ricocheting radio waves monitor the tiniest movements in a room

Researchers from Duke University and Institut Langevin have shown that patterns made by radio waves can detect a person’s presence and location anywhere inside a room. This new motion-sensing technology could lead to new smart home devices for energy savings, security, healthcare and gaming. “Energy companies don’t love infrared motion …

Sensor to monitor orbital debris outside space station

The International Space Station isn’t the only spacecraft orbiting the Earth. In fact, it is accompanied by the Hubble Space Telescope, satellites within the Earth Observing System, and more than 1,000 other operational spacecraft and CubeSats. In addition to spacecraft, bits of orbital debris – human-made objects no longer serving …
