New way to 'see' objects accelerates the future of self-driving cars

Researchers have discovered a simple, cost-effective, and accurate new method for equipping self-driving cars with the tools needed to perceive 3D objects in their path.

A team of researchers has developed a wearable device that can analyze sweat to detect levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, in real-time. The device consists of a microfluidic platform that collects sweat and a cortisol-specific antibody that is used to measure cortisol levels. The device has been tested in both laboratory and real-world settings, and the results show that it is a promising tool for monitoring stress levels in real-time. The researchers believe that this technology could be useful in a variety of settings, from athletics to mental health treatment.
