FPS Navigation to See Technological Improvements

QCRI and MIT joined hands to improve navigation through Global Positioning System or GPS. And, they dabbled with images from satellite to invent new model for the same. Basically, they tag features on the road, making maps more detailed, improving navigation. Understanding the Model Details help navigate unfamiliar areas better. Plus, they provide better warning […]

MIT Researchers Perform First Ever Laser Ultrasound on Humans

For the majority of people, undergoing an ultrasound treatment is fairly easy. As the technician slowly presses the probe against the skin of a patient, it generates sound waves. These sound waves then travel through the skin and bounce off the muscle fat and other tissues before reaching back to the probe. The probe then […]
