Researchers Develop 3-D Printed Objects That Can Track and Store How They Are Used

University of Washington

Engineers at the University of Washington have developed 3-D printed devices that can track and store their own use — without using batteries or electronics. Instead, this system uses a method called backscatter, through which a device can share information by reflecting signals that have been transmitted to it with an antenna.

Cross-cutting issues in environmental quality and agriculture symposium

American Society of Agronomy (ASA), Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), Soil Science Society of America (SSSA)

Farmers and agronomists must continue to focus on yield when creating their management plans, as the world’s population keeps growing. However, environmental quality–especially water and soil quality–deserve as much focus as yield. Scientists present their findings with this environmental focus in agriculture.

Clear the Air

University of Utah

Engineers from the University of Utah have studied the effects of controlling home heating and air conditioning systems based on a home’s indoor air quality instead of temperature. They have discovered that programming your air conditioner and furnace to turn on and off based on the indoor air quality as well as the temperature doesn’t waste a lot of additional energy but keeps the air much cleaner
