Advances in data management and component fabrication have made hyperspectral imaging viable in applications ranging from food inspection to pathogen detection to airport security and more.
LEDs promise higher efficiency in street lighting. But overcoming the glare and environmental impacts of the most efficient LED bulbs will require some engineering innovations—and venturing into the sometimes surprising territory of vision science at low light levels.
