The Official Contiki OS Blog: Contiki 3.0 Released, New Hardware from Texas Instruments, Zolertia | Heron | Scoop.it

As the wireless world evolves, so does its hardware. Recently, many new Systems-on-a-Chip (SoCs) have been released, which makes hardware design much easier, as you only need a single chip for both radio communication and control.

Contiki 3.0 adds support for two new interesting hardware plaforms: the Texas Instruments Sensortag and the Zolertia ReMote.

KIT - KIT - Media - Press Releases - PI 2015 - Snake Scales Protect Steel against Friction

KIT - KIT - Media - Press Releases - PI 2015 - Snake Scales Protect Steel against Friction | Heron | Scoop.it

A snake moves without legs by the scales on its belly gripping the ground. It generates friction at the points needed to move forwards only and prevents its scales from being worn off by too much friction. Researchers of KIT have found a way to transfer this feature to components of movable systems. In this way, durability of hip prostheses, computer hard disks or smartphones might be enhanced. Their results are published in the journal “Bioinspiration & Biomimetics”. DOI: 10.1088/1748-3190/10/4/044001 .
