The DataMan 100 QL and 200 QL fixed-mount readers from Cognex offer reliable 1-D bar-code reading performance. The readers are easily field-upgraded to add 2-D data matrix and QR code reading capability if application needs change. The devices are roughly the same price as laser scanners yet provide significantly more reliable code reading performance, according to the company. They read codes that laser bar-code scanners fail to read, such as marks that are low in contrast, damaged, or distorted by severe perspective. The readers feature the 1DMax code reading algorithm, which also handles quiet zone violations that can occur when codes are printed close to a label’s edge.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
France's Dassault Aviation and India's Reliance Group announced in late September 2016 the creation of a joint venture (JV) in India called Dassault Reliance Aerospace. With this announcement came news that the Dassault Reliance Aerospace JV will be a key player in the execution of offset obligations as a part of the 36 Rafale fighter jet purchase agreement that was signed between France and India on September 23, 2016 and is valued at around €7.87 billion, or about Rs. 59,000 crore.
One of the biggest issues in bringing forward new designs is the length of time that it takes to agree to a new specification, research and evaluate the alternative features and configurations, and then embark on a development program that will take the design to flight testing and ultimately operational service.
