We must learn to both sustainably exploit and protect our vast oceans, provider of oxygen, food, hydrocarbons and other resources. A solution lies in sensing and interacting through an Internet of Things, with distributed networks of intelligent sensors and actuators. Unfortunately, we currently lack a marine Internet, crucial to achieve distributed, coordinated and adaptive control, due to the rapid absorption of light and radio waves in seawater. [read more]
A large number of engineering applications involve granular material or a particulate phase in combination with a gaseous or liquid phase. Applications for this kind of materials mix can be found in diverse domains such as the pharmaceutical industry, the food and processing industry, energy production or systems biology. Everyday products such as coffee, corn flakes, nuts or fertilizer all depend on this field of knowledge known as multi-physics. [read more]
