Success And Peril As The Internet Of Things Haul Trillions Into Global Economy
Success And Peril As The Internet Of Things Haul Trillions Into Global Economy

The Internet of Things (IoT) is set to contribute trillions of dollars to the global economy over the next two decades as the networked system of sensors, devices, and everyday objects becomes more pervasive and ubiquitous. Pitfalls abound, however, as cybersecurity and other challenges have not been sufficiently addressed by IoT innovators.

AUTOMOTIVE WHITE PAPERS, APPLICATION NOTES, AND CASE STUDIES

  • Paving The Way To Self-Driving Cars With Advanced Driver Assistance Systems
    Paving The Way To Self-Driving Cars With Advanced Driver Assistance Systems

    The excitement about the future of self-driving cars can make it easy to overlook numerous short-term developments by automotive manufacturers. Collectively known as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), these developments must be able to make cars safer, and their gradual introduction must also improve road safety. In addition, ADAS features represent an evolution in vehicle sensing, intelligence, and control that will ultimately lead to self-driving cars. This white paper discusses the challenges in ADAS adoption, and the importance of using the most advanced technologies for its future.

    Automotive Radars — Antenna Design, Integration, And Channel Modelling

    Driving aid radar systems are critical to enabling key technologies in the development of autonomous vehicles. With the need to meet not only road safety applications, but parking assist functions as well, certain specifications must be maintained for the antenna to be integrated into the vehicle. 

  • Removing Wires, Increasing Performance
    Removing Wires, Increasing Performance

    A few years ago, driving while using a phone was practically unheard of or frowned upon. Today, it’s actually quite the opposite. From GPS navigation to infotainment, voice-controlled texting to cloud data transfer, the use of cell phones and other mobile devices is so prevalent while driving that many car manufacturers now offer WiFi in the vehicle. Nevertheless, the additional cell phone usage and significant amount of send/receive data increases the chance of a dead battery alongside the panic of finding a charging cord and plugging it in. The solution? Inductive charging. This white paper describes the technology behind wireless charging, its challenges, and Laird’s latest solutions for automotive wireless charging modules. .
