Drones have been given ‘eyes’ and a new algorithm to help them fly intelligently, reaching their target position when GPS is not available. Dr Jiefei Wang, a researcher from UNSW Canberra Trusted Autonomy Group, used an Xbox Kinect sensor as an input camera to help drones ‘see’ their environment. Jiefei developed algorithms to process the […]
New blood pressure categories are helping to inform the development of more accurate measurement devices, following a discovery by Tasmanian researchers. Blood pressure subtleties are being missed by the current cuff measure, according to a recent study led by Dean Picone of the Menzies Institute for Medical Research at the University of Tasmania.
Fresh Science is a national competition helping early-career researchers find, and then share, their stories of discovery.
The program takes up-and-coming researchers with no media experience and turns them into spokespeople for science, giving them a taste of life in the limelight, with a day of media training and a public event in their home state.
We run Fresh Science in every state where we can secure funding.
