    The telecommunications industry is now entering an exciting phase of development many refer to as the Internet of Everything (IoE), including Internet of Humans (IoH), Internet of Digital (IoD), and Internet of Sensors (IoS). The objective here is to bring more “smartness” to the way humans and machines communicate. In order for this vision to materialize, enabling technologies must be harmonized under a common paradigm so they can enable seamless experiences across various verticals. There are five key technologies upon which the IoE world is built, namely sensor networks, connectivity, processing, software platforms, actuation technologies, and big data and machine learning. Based on these building blocks, the Semiconductors sector looks at the strategic technology deployment across various verticals with unparalled technology granularity covering all WLAN and WWAN technologies and technology combinations, processing platforms including CPUs, MCUs, MPUs, DSPs, ISPs, heterogeneous computing, high performance computing, key sensor technologies, and sensor fusions targeting various use cases from motion sensing, environment sensing, optical, and image sensing, to acoustic sensing and biometric sensing.

    Google’s Self-Driving Car – A Lot of Future Tech

    3Q 2016

    Google’s Self-Driving Car is really a Software-Defined Car or maybe a Sensor-Defined Car, as it is the software and sensors that define the essence of the vehicle. Google held a public “show and tell” display of two of its tricked-out, self-driving Lexus RX 450h vehicles, with the RADAR and LIDAR sensors for all to see. Seeing and hearing they did, as dozens of Google employees were on hand to talk up the program and facilitate the indoor demonstrations of LIDAR up close and personal. The automotive news points to a bright future for autonomous vehicles, and perhaps the biggest benefits arriving with 5G enabled cooperative mobility.
