View Resource BBC News Sci/Tech: Computers That Run Without Electricity

Scientists at the University of Notre Dame's Department of Electrical Engineering have developed "computer circuits that can be built to work without electricity -- a tiny initial charge is all that is needed." However, a major obstacle that needs to be overcome before the circuits can be useful is that they seem to work at temperatures just above absolute zero. This site is a news release from...

View Resource 3-D Microbatteries

A collaboration between three universities is working to create a battery that is capable of powering microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). The work is especially important because no viable battery currently exists for these tiny devices. The three-dimensional battery will be a departure from current battery designs, which stack "positive and negative electrodes... like sheets of paper." As more...

View Resource Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories: Marginalizing Out Future Passengers in Group Elevator Control

Despite being in existence for over a century, modern elevators have an underlying problem that is anything but easy to solve. When multiple elevators are being used in a single location, it quickly becomes a daunting task to create an intelligent control system that optimally meets the needs of its users. This paper, which will be presented at the 2003 Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial...
