April 14, 2016 - Following an extensive lighting retrofit project, Players Paradise Indoor Sports Facility in Stoney Creek, Ont. is $20,782 richer thanks to a Horizon Utilities incentive.
April 9, 2016 - Experimental physicists at Saarland University say they have developed a cable security solution that—underpinned by the Earth’s magnetic field—issues warnings to, say, a smartphone, whenever it registers a change in field strength... as when a burglar sneaks onto your property.
March 31, 2016 - According to researchers, a “world’s first” 20kW wireless electric vehicle charging system demonstrated at Oak Ridge National Laboratory has achieved 90% efficiency at 3X the rate of the plug-in systems commonly used for electric vehicles today.
March 23, 2016 - A team of engineers from Saarland University are developing intelligent motor systems that reveal their health without requiring additional sensors by, essentially, transforming the motors themselves into sensors.
March 12, 2016 - Ice build-up on your car is a nuisance, but can be downright dangerous on a powerline or wind turbine, and removing it with current methods—usually chemical melting agents, or scrapers and hammers—is difficult and expensive work. But that may soon change.
March 10, 2016 - According to stakeholders, technological breakthroughs in the TREASORES project will lead to cheaper lighting and flexible solar cells.
February 12, 2016 - Seneca College and Siemens Canada say they are helping Canadian manufacturing take a positive step in addressing the technical skills gap with the opening of Ontario’s first Mechatronics Simulation & Demonstration Centre (MSDC), which was officially launched today.
February 1, 2016 - Pedestrians feel safer in streets illuminated with White light than in those illuminated with ‘Sodium-Yellow’’, even when the former may be more polluting in certain aspects.
January 24, 2016 - “Homeowners have indicated a strong preference for functionality, accessibility and sustainability over the last 10 years, and architects expect that to accelerate,” said Kermit Baker, chief economist with the American Institute of Architects.
January 22, 2016 - University of Nebraska-Lincoln professor of civil engineering Chris Tuan has added a pinch of steel shavings and a dash of carbon particles to a concrete slab to create self-melting concrete.
January 12, 2016 - Despite facing extinction, traditional incandescent light bulbs may yet make a comeback thanks to a technological breakthrough by researchers at MIT and Purdue University.
December 19, 2015 - Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs, is undergoing major expansion and restoration “to ensure the viability of the ballpark for future generations of Cubs fans”. Known as the 1060 Project, the 4-year upgrade plan includes structural upgrades, improved player facilities, new fan amenities, outfield signage, expanded concessions, new and improved restroom facilities, and more. And, as you can imagine, there’s going to be a lot of lighting—some new, some legacy—and all of it requiring control.
October 2, 2015 - Apparently, public charging infrastructure is not needed everywhere to enable PEV (plug-in electric vehicle) adoption. Instead, infrastructure should be focused at homes, workplaces and public hot spots that serve multiple venues.
August 13, 2015 - Scientists are tapping into photographs taken by astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) to measure the amount of light pollution worldwide and, not surprisingly, their results confirm that the diffuse glow that brightens the night skies in and around cities is scattered light from streetlights and buildings.
