TTHE NEW CIGALE FOREST hadn’t been seen for seven years when he caught the attention of Oxford University environmentalist and computer scientist Alex Rogers. The insect is the only cicada native to the British Isles. It spends 7-8 years underground as a pupa, then emerges, reproduces and dies within six weeks. During its short adult life, it produces a high-pitched hiss that would make it easier to detect, if it were not at the upper limit of human hearing. Its call is audible to children but not to most adults. It can however be picked up by the microphones of smartphones. This led to the invention of AudioMoth, an “acoustic recorder” that can be configured to listen to and record a particular sound.

The device gets its name from the fact that moths can hear sounds over a wide spectrum of frequencies. It is approximately 60mm square and 15mm thick and includes a smartphone microphone, a memory card and a core processing chip, powered by three AA batteries. Dr. Rogers’ startup, Open Acoustic Devices, sells them for $ 60 through a group buying program that keeps costs low. At that price, “you can deploy a lot more devices, you can publish them to people and if they get lost or stolen, it doesn’t really matter,” says Dr. Rogers. To date, some 30,000 AudioMoths have been scattered around the world. A smaller version has just been released and is being incorporated into an experiment to study how African carnivores respond to warmer temperatures by monitoring the sounds they make, such as panting.

The AudioMoth is just one example of the explosion in the use of sensors to monitor ecosystems that has occurred over the past decade. Such devices are dotted throughout forests and national parks, attached to trees or on the backs of animals. In addition to recording environmental data, such as temperature or humidity, they also monitor the nature, number and movement of living things.

Motion activated camera traps captured images of the most timid snow leopards. Microphones monitor bat colonies, known to harbor diseases that can spread to humans, and coral reefs, whose cracklings are believed to broadcast their position to nearby fish. Radio beacons attached to animals capture data about their behavior in their daily lives. The Icarus project has around 5,000 lightweight tags, weighing just five grams each, attached to animals on all continents. The sensors track animal movements within a few meters, as well as local temperature, pressure and humidity, all relayed to researchers via an antenna on the International Space Station.

Technologies borrowed from the smartphone industry, including batteries, cameras, microphones, and chips, have helped make these sensors smaller, cheaper and more efficient. Before the Icarus Project developed its five-gram sensors, most radio beacons weighed between 15 and 20 g. A future version will reduce the weight to just one gram, allowing the tags to be attached to even smaller creatures. Smartphone technology has also reduced the cost and size of camera traps. TrailGuard, a device developed by Resolve, an American environmental group, houses a tiny camera in a housing the size of a Sharpie pen that is difficult to spot when hung in a tree.

Another trendy technology, machine learning, has revolutionized the task of browsing the resulting sound recordings, images and other readings, many of which are false alarms. By working with artificial intelligence researchers, environmentalists can rely on algorithms to perform recognition for them. Big tech companies, including Google and Microsoft, are also getting involved. Wildlife Insights, a collaboration of seven major conservation organizations, with support from Google, is trying to create a single space where all camera traps will record their data (its database currently has 16,652 camera trap projects in 44 countries). Its machine learning models can filter out the blank images that make up the majority of camera trap images and identify hundreds of species in the rest. Wild Me, a NGO based in Oregon, has algorithms for 53 species, capable of distinguishing individual animals based on their scratches, spots or wrinkles.

As sensors become smarter, they are increasingly able to process data on their own, at the edge of the network rather than centrally in the cloud, reducing the need to transmit or store data. unnecessarily. If the sensors are networked, they can also sound the alarm immediately if they detect something important. TrailGuard is different from most camera traps in that it is designed to identify poachers rather than wildlife. During its demonstration phase, it was installed in one of the largest animal parks in Africa and detected two humans as they entered the area. Within a minute, footage was sent to park headquarters, where staff confirmed it showed two poachers, who were later arrested. Relaying the data to researchers can be tricky, however, as wildlife surveys are often conducted in remote areas with little or no mobile network coverage. Sending data via satellite works well, but is expensive, although prices may drop as new constellations in low Earth orbit become available.

Placing devices on the ground, or attached to animals, is not the only way to monitor ecosystems. It can also be done from the air or from space. Regional or even global snapshots can be generated using instruments mounted on airplanes or by scanning the Earth using satellites. The dozens of Earth observation instruments orbiting the planet can collect land use information, detect ocean plankton blooms, monitor forest fire emissions, and track oil spills or pollution. rupture of the polar ice caps. Remote sensing has long been used by environmental groups concerned with monitoring rates of deforestation in remote areas.

But satellite imagery can be imperfect. Seen from above, some tropical tree plantations can look like native forests. And while it is easy to spot large areas that have been clearcut, it is much more difficult to identify areas where selective logging, clearing of undergrowth, or overhunting of forest dispersal animals. seeds degrade the integrity of a forest. A study published in Nature in 2020 found that only 40% of the remaining forests have high integrity; the remaining 60% have been degraded in one way or another. In 2019, an international team of ecologists and forest experts showed that taking into account the degradation of seemingly intact forests increased estimates of forest emissions six-fold, compared to emissions caused by clearcutting. This research relied on a combination of remote sensing data with numerical modeling and fieldwork in the field.

Eyes in the sky

New forest health assessment tools are becoming available, the most important of which is LIDAR—A technique similar to radar, except that it uses infrared laser light instead of radio waves and can map spaces in high resolution and three dimensions. Pointed at a tree, it can generate a 3 re model of its entire structure, including the position of each branch to the nearest millimeter. These data can be used to estimate the volume and mass of a tree, or area of ​​forest, and therefore its carbon content.

The Global Airborne Observatory takes this kind of 3re modeling a little further. Designed by Greg Asner of Arizona State University, it combines LIDAR with spectrometers and cameras mounted on an airplane. Two high-powered laser beams fired from under the plane sweep across the landscape, creating a 3re model of everything below, from the treetops to the ground. At the same time, spectrometers bounce light of different wavelengths off the foliage. Using a reference library containing thousands of dried and frozen plant samples, the team discovered how to identify individual plant species from spectroscopic data and determine their moisture content. The result is a detailed landscape image showing the shape, size and species of individual trees, from which the carbon content and overall health of the forest can be determined.

In May 2021, Dr Asner and his team launched a related tool focused on the oceans. Bleaching of corals, caused by warmer seas, damages reefs. Thousands of associated species, from sponges to octopuses, depend on the health of their home reef. The Allen Coral Atlas uses high resolution satellite imagery and machine learning to monitor bleaching events in real time by detecting changes in reef reflectivity. A trial, in Hawaii in 2019, identified a whitewash that field investigations had missed. The hope is that by detecting it as it occurs, other causes of stress such as fishing can be reduced, giving reefs a better chance of recovery.

Technological Advances Bring Exciting New MEWP Options https://techcomforces.com/technological-advances-bring-exciting-new-mewp-options/ https://techcomforces.com/technological-advances-bring-exciting-new-mewp-options/#respond Fri, 11 Jun 2021 05:02:24 +0000 https://techcomforces.com/technological-advances-bring-exciting-new-mewp-options/


Standards and technology have changed, so maintenance managers should review elevators.



OTHER PARTS OF THIS ARTICLEpt. 1: This pagept. 2: How to select the right MEWP

elevatorsEach installation has unique specifications and requirements, which means that selecting the right MEWP for maintenance applications can often be difficult.



Technological innovations surrounding mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) mean that maintenance managers and engineers need to keep abreast of new industry standards. The new ANSI A92.20 standards for the aerial equipment industry have changed the design requirements for MEWPs, including aerial work platforms, scissor lifts and portable aerial work platforms, manufactured after June 1, 2020.

These design changes, which include many new features and technologies such as load sensing and tilt sensing, are intended to improve the safety of MEWPs, said Jennifer Stiansen, director of marketing at JLG.

“For load sensing, MEWPs now need to be fitted with sensors that actively monitor the machine platform load and trigger an alarm, as well as interrupt normal operations in the event of an overload,” says Stiansen.

To meet this requirement, the sensor technology integrated in MEWPs is sufficiently advanced to allow operators to react quickly and easily to an overload situation. By removing or unloading items from a platform, the MEWP will recognize when it has returned to its rated load capacity, allowing operations to be resumed without the need to recalibrate the machine.

The requirements for tilt detection in today’s standards are very similar to those for load detection. The tilt sensor triggers an alarm and turns off the boom and drive functions if the tilt exceeds the machine’s rated grade tolerance, Stiansen explains. Once the machine recognizes that it is back in its rated area, operators can reposition the machine or level the work area, to continue to complete the job within rated load and grade tolerance. the machine.

New advances

Recent advances in PEMP machine technology have been developed to handle work over rough terrain.

“There are new developments that contribute to operator productivity in areas with limited space,” says Stiansen.

MEWPs equipped with an electronic sensing system have strategically placed sensors that provide visual and audible alerts to notify the machine operator when approaching a structure. These sensors trigger the machine to slow down as it approaches the structure, emitting an audible beep that increases in rhythm as it approaches before stopping the unit completely.

“In situations where the MEWP needs to move closer to the structure once it is stopped, the operator can override the sensor technology to slowly advance toward the structure to place the machine closer to the desired work area.” , explains Stiansen.

The technology also continues to help advance product design in the lifting equipment segment, ranging from new safety features to improved lifting capacities and more environmentally friendly power solutions, said Matthew. Elvin, CEO of Snorkel.

“We have introduced a new variable tilt function which allows us to provide a lighter scissor lift capable of reaching the maximum working height and lifting the maximum capacity of the platform outdoors,” explains Elvin.

This feature allows scissor lifts to be used on steeper side slopes while the platform is below its defined height. As the platform is raised, the degree of side-to-side slope the machines can operate on decreases accordingly.

Like many other facility management products, elevators adopt lithium-ion battery technology, especially for mid-size aerial work platforms. Unlike existing electric aerial work platforms which are typically only used on concrete surfaces, the new mid-size aerial work platforms powered by lithium-ion batteries have full all-terrain four-wheel drive capabilities, in addition to being completely zero emissions. .

Another recent trend is a great diversification of heights and types of elevators geared towards more specific applications, says Austin Caskey, product line manager at Sunbelt Rentals. In the past, managers had limited options in terms of size, weight capacity, outward reach, and availability of basket accessories. There are now many other options.

“For example, facility maintenance managers and their crews previously had to rent a 19-foot scissor lift for any work performed on a standard one-story floor,” says Caskey. “Now they have lots of 10 to 20 foot height options and different lengths and compactness so they can fit in spacious or tight spaces. “

New Technology Helps Predict Return Currents Days In Advance, Used on Gulf Coast | Baldwin County Alabama News https://techcomforces.com/new-technology-helps-predict-return-currents-days-in-advance-used-on-gulf-coast-baldwin-county-alabama-news/ https://techcomforces.com/new-technology-helps-predict-return-currents-days-in-advance-used-on-gulf-coast-baldwin-county-alabama-news/#respond Thu, 10 Jun 2021 01:21:00 +0000 https://techcomforces.com/new-technology-helps-predict-return-currents-days-in-advance-used-on-gulf-coast-baldwin-county-alabama-news/

BALDWIN COUNTY, ALA (WALA) – In the past seven days, lifeguards at Baldwin Beach have had to rescue more than 25 people.

For many swimmers, they are in the water having fun when suddenly a tear sets in, but there is hope that the new technology will help keep people safe.

On Wednesday, a red flag flew high over the beach at Gulf Shores.






“Whenever we have red flags, we encourage people not to enter the water, especially if you are not an experienced swimmer,” said Joethan Phillips, chief safety officer for Gulf Shores Beach. “The water is not shut off, but there are dangerous conditions there.”

Choppy waves, crashing waves and rip currents keep lifeguards busy at the beach.

Phillips has been a beach lifeguard for almost 15 years and he’s seen it all.

“Those reverse currents when we have red flag days can pull really hard,” he said.

Rips are one of the biggest threats swimmers face here. They are powerful narrow canals of swift water that run away from the shore.

“The main thing is to relax, call for help, and not try to beat the current if you get caught in a reverse current or start to feel pulled back,” Phillips said. “Once you feel the current stop pulling you back, you can swim parallel to the beach and then swim in it.”

For years, reverse currents have been difficult to predict, but new technology from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is changing that.

“The model predicts the probability of dangerous reverse currents from zero to 100 percent every kilometer or so along the beach, every hour 6 days into the future,” said Greg Dusek, senior scientist at NOAA.

Dusek has been working on this new technology for over a decade.

The model examines wave and water level forecasts. Similar to weather forecasting, the model predicts the probability of dangerous currents.

“How accurate do you think this is,” asked FOX10 News reporter Tyler Fingert.

“We have seen improvements of over 50% over our previous approaches,” said Dusek.

Nationwide return currents kill about 100 people each year, including 2 this week in Baldwin County. This new technology hopes to reduce that.

For lifeguards like Phillips, he hopes that a more informed beach goer will lead to a safer beach day.

“The best tool is to have your eyes on the beach and watch the currents, but at any time you can have other sources to help you and more specific sources which are of great help” , did he declare.

This life-saving technology is already in use on the Gulf Coast. Mobile’s National Weather Service says the new model helps guide their daily rip current forecasts.

Investors call for ethical approach to facial recognition technology https://techcomforces.com/investors-call-for-ethical-approach-to-facial-recognition-technology/ https://techcomforces.com/investors-call-for-ethical-approach-to-facial-recognition-technology/#respond Mon, 07 Jun 2021 23:37:00 +0000 https://techcomforces.com/investors-call-for-ethical-approach-to-facial-recognition-technology/ Visitors check their phones behind screens advertising facial recognition software during the Global Mobile Internet Conference at the National Convention in Beijing, China on April 27, 2018. REUTERS / Damir Sagolj

Group of 50 investors with over $ 4.5 trillion in assets call on companies involved in the development and use of facial recognition technology, such as Amazon (AMZN.O) and Facebook (FB.O) , to do so ethically. .

The investor group, led by asset manager Candriam, a European division of US financial services firm New York Life, said in a statement that the technology could infringe an individual’s privacy rights , given the lack of consent of the identified persons, and that there is often no official control.

The initiative shows how fund managers are increasingly tackling political issues that were once seen as fringe topics for shareholders as retail investors pour billions of dollars into funds focused on ethical and sustainability criteria.

Human rights activists say facial recognition technology, which can be used to unlock smartphones or verify bank accounts, can also be used by governments to track citizens and quell political dissent.

The investor group said it would begin a two-year engagement process with companies developing or using the technology. He said he sees 34 companies as leaders in facial recognition, including Amazon, Facebook, and Asian tech companies Alibaba (9988.HK) and Huawei (HWT.UL).

An Amazon spokesperson declined to comment. The other companies did not immediately comment when contacted by Reuters.

Amazon told Reuters last month it was extending the moratorium it placed on police on the use of its facial recognition technology. Civil liberties groups have warned that inaccurate correspondence could lead to unfair arrests.

“In order for investors to fulfill their responsibility to respect human rights, we call on companies to proactively assess, disclose, mitigate and correct human rights risks associated with their facial recognition products and services,” said Rosa van den Beemt, investment manager. Analyst at BMO Global Asset Management, one of the investors who joined the initiative.

The facial recognition technology market is expected to reach around $ 10 billion in 2020, Candriam said in a report released in March, citing a 2018 survey from Allied Market Research.

Among those who signed on to the investor initiative were UK firm Aviva Investors (AV.L), Royal London Asset Management, Canadian BMO Global Asset Management, Dutch firm NN Investment Partners and Norwegian firm KLP.

“The growing deployment and use of facial recognition technologies has human rights implications that are not fully taken into account by companies,” said Louise Piffaut, senior ESG analyst at Aviva Investors.

Candriam said there is currently no global framework governing the collection and use of biometric data, but the European Union has proposed its very first legal framework and China has released a draft standard.

The European Union’s privacy watchdog said in April that the technology should be banned in Europe because of its “deep and undemocratic intrusion” into people’s privacy.

Ector County Environmental Enforcement Hopes to Implement New Technology to Catch Illegal Spills https://techcomforces.com/ector-county-environmental-enforcement-hopes-to-implement-new-technology-to-catch-illegal-spills/ https://techcomforces.com/ector-county-environmental-enforcement-hopes-to-implement-new-technology-to-catch-illegal-spills/#respond Fri, 04 Jun 2021 23:30:00 +0000 https://techcomforces.com/ector-county-environmental-enforcement-hopes-to-implement-new-technology-to-catch-illegal-spills/

ODESSA, Texas (KOSA) – Ector County Commissioner Mike Gardner has said he’s ready to see illegal dumpsters clean up their act.

“In this fiscal year, the bad guys picked up $ 200,000 in discarded trash,” Garnder said.

Ector County Commissioner Mike Gardner said in western Odessa people were illegally throwing away anything from sofas, tires and old appliances.

“An item like this could cost you $ 150 to landfill and a lot of people just don’t have the money to do it.”

County environmental law enforcement hopes to implement new technology to catch offenders red-handed.

“We’re looking at a program from a company that will install a special type of cameras that will read license plates. Every time they pass one of these readers, they’ll let them know once you put their number there. tag and then it will track them down and it’s much easier to find them.

Gardner said he hoped to get the program, which will include 20 specialty cameras, approved at the commissioner’s next meeting.

The county has already purchased a grapple truck and has also hired a remediation crew.

“They come out into an area that has been dumped or when people call and say someone threw a couch in front of my house or tires or whatever… then they are sent every day to go to those areas, they choose that. and clean it up where there is no more waste there, ”Gardner said.

In the meantime, on Saturday, Ector’s Environmental Enforcement Unit is hosting a free bulky item drop-off for residents of Ector County, for more information click here.

TORONTO – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – The eighth paragraph of the press release dated June 1, 2021, should read … said Andrew Eibl, COO of Flosonics Medical (instead of … said Andrew Eibl, CEO of Flosonics Medical).

The updated version reads as follows:

OBIO SHARES THE RESULTS OF THE PILOT LAUNCH OF NEW TECHNOLOGIES THAT HELP MANAGE COVID-19

Innovative Canadian medical technology projects made possible by the Early Adopter Health Network

As the race to eradicate Covid-19 continues, the Ontario Bioscience Innovation Organization (OBIO®), a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing innovation and commercialization of health technologies in Ontario, shares the results of the pilot launch of its Early Adopter Health program. Network (EAHN) introduced last year. Four projects with new technologies have been adapted to meet the challenges of Covid-19, ranging from healthcare operations and disease / patient management to improving diagnosis or treatment.

“EAHN’s goal is to become the first to adopt local medical technology and help streamline the procurement process to help hospitals and healthcare providers provide better patient care,” said Gail Garland, President and CEO of OBIO. “The companies in our program were able to pivot their technologies in real time to help address some of the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and match them more effectively with clinical end users. ”

The four projects activated by EAHN include:

KA imaging

KA Imaging’s Reveal 35C is the world’s first x-ray detector that provides three different images (a standard digital x-ray, as well as bone and soft tissue images) and can be used at the bedside to better visualize the lungs. , especially in COVID-19 patients. Enhanced diagnostic imaging can be a game-changer in the ICU to assess whether patients with pneumonia need a ventilator, or how the disease is progressing, and can be easily deployed in a community hospital or clinic.

“With the support of EAHN, we were able to test Reveal in a clinical environment, allowing the radiologist to diagnose pneumonia with more confidence,” said Amol Karnick, President and CEO of KA Imaging. “The same facility has already received two additional systems to increase imaging capacity, proving that early adopters are critical to how quickly new technologies are implemented. ”

Synaptive Medical

Patients with COVID-19 may have neurological and cardiopulmonary problems requiring repeated MRIs and CT scans. Given the virus’s half-life of 72 hours on plastic or metal, the surfaces of these machines can be contaminated, exposing healthcare workers and other patients to infection. Synaptive, along with its partners, has designed a single-use drape that can be safely discarded after each scan, an innovation that can prevent potential COVID-19 contamination and protect against other airborne viruses.

“The OBIO program provides us with the opportunity to design, test and validate our MRI drape solution in a real clinical scenario, with the collaboration of our UHN partners,” said Cameron Piron, president of Synaptive Medical. “The ability to work with major Ontario healthcare organizations through EAHN provides companies like Synaptive Medical with a Canadian customer base and experiences that reinforce our global value proposition.

Flosonics Medical

FloPatch, the world’s first portable and wireless Doppler blood flow device, helps medical staff assess and monitor blood flow in critically ill patients by sending data remotely to mobile devices using low-power Bluetooth. energy, which is essential in the context of a pandemic. The low-cost ultrasonic sensor adheres to the patient’s neck, providing hands-free blood flow assessments and important clinical information for patients in the emergency department, operating room, general practice ward, and nursing units. intensive care.

“Through the Early Adopter Health Network, with support from the Northern Health Science Research Institute, we have been able to test FloPatch and advance the technology to market by facilitating engagement with hospitals here in Ontario. said Andrew Eibl, COO of Flosonics Medical.

Ironstone product development

Ironstone’s Revoxa ™ system increases the efficiency of oxygen delivery to COVID patients by nearly ten times, meaning that an oxygen tank that would typically last less than a day could last more than one week. If deployed, the technology could make an incredible difference in places like India, where access to oxygen is currently rationed on a triage basis.

“The support of the OBIO program has been invaluable in advancing this technology towards clinical use,” said Joel Ironstone, president of Ironstone Product Development. “The funding helped us conduct a trial to demonstrate the technology’s ability to dramatically reduce oxygen consumption while providing the same or potentially improved support to hypoxic patients, allowing us to positively contribute to the pandemic effort.”

OBIO undertook years of consultation with industry and the healthcare system to develop EAHN. Healthcare companies and healthcare organizations wishing to be part of EAHN should send proposals or requests for additional information to OBIO at info@obio.ca.

About OBIO

OBIO®, founded in 2009, is a non-profit, member-based innovation organization engaged in strategy, programming, policy development and advocacy to promote the commercialization of technologies of the human health, positioning Canada as a leader in the international market. OBIO advances this goal through collaborative partnerships with industry, the investment community, academia, the healthcare system and government.
