Virtual Reality can predict human stress vulnerability

We all react to stress in different ways. A sudden loud noise or flash of light can elicit different degrees of response from people, which indicates that some of us are more susceptible to the impact of stress than others. Any event that causes stress is called a “stressor”. Our bodies are equipped to handle Read more about Virtual Reality can predict human stress vulnerability[…]

AI-powered textiles that allow humans to interact more safely and intuitively with robots

Professor Fabien Sorin and doctoral assistant Andreas Leber, at the Laboratory of Photonic Materials and Fibre Devices (FIMAP) in EPFL’s School of Engineering, have developed a technology that can be used to detect a body’s movements – and a whole lot more. “Imagine clothing or hospital bed sheets capable of monitoring your breathing and physical Read more about AI-powered textiles that allow humans to interact more safely and intuitively with robots[…]

A graphene chip filters light to boost communications

A microchip that filters out unwanted radiation with the help of graphene has been developed by scientists from the EPFL and tested by researchers of the University of Geneva (UNIGE). The invention could be used in future devices to transmit wireless data ten times faster. EPFL and UNIGE scientists have developed a microchip using graphene Read more about A graphene chip filters light to boost communications[…]
