Combine an electrostatic transducer with an ultrasonic transceiver IC to build a ranging system that senses objects at distances from 4 inches to more than 30 feet. Transducer Yl `s broadband characteristic simplifies tuning. The secondary of T1 resonates with the 500-pF capacitor Cl at a frequency between 50 and 60 kHz.
You tune L1 to this frequency by using an oscilloscope to note the maximum echo sensitivity at pin 1. Step-up transformer T1 provjdes 150-V bias for the transducer.

IEEE Spectrum I'm not sure if there's any sort of metric for how successful Aldebaran Robotics' Pepper robot is at working in customer service. People are certainly buying them, but by itself, that doesn't say much about whether it works and

IEEE Spectrum Cars: BMW 7 SeriesThe Wi-Fi–connected tablet manages just about everything, including a Bowers & Wilkins system with 1,400 watts and 16 speakers, and a panoramic roof with 15,000 LEDs forming a starlight pattern.
IEEE Spectrum It is more challenging than the speech recognition that are common today. That's because the mouth assumes between 10 and 14 shapes, called visemes, while speech has 50 different sounds called phonemes. So the same viseme can c
