Robust, Low-cost Sensor Tracks Heat Flow to Boost Efficiency

TOKYO, Japan, July 25, 2023 ( Sustainability News) – Is the machinery in your facility radiating too much heat? Is it dangerous for workers? Is it heating up the building, which then requires cooling? Excess heat from mechanical or electronic devices is a sign or cause of inefficient performance. Now, researchers in Tokyo are demonstrating embedded sensors to monitor the flow of heat that could help engineers alter device behavior or design to improve efficiency.
