Whether it’s a matter of national security or commercial success, a space plane or a sensor, brilliant people regularly refrain from trumpeting their astounding scientific achievements. It's not always easy or popular, but it's necessary, and I tip my hat top you, secret-keepers.
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.
The United States House of Representatives has unanimously approved a key bill that aims to set the regulatory framework for self-driving vehicles.
From April 1, 2018 onward, car manufacturers are required to equip new vehicles for sale in the EU with an eCall module.
LG Electronics (LG) is partnering with HERE Technologies (HERE), a global provider of digital mapping and location services, to offer a next-generation telematics solution for autonomous vehicles.
Vodafone recently entered the Internet of Things (IoT) consumer market with the launch of “V by Vodafone” enabling consumers to connect millions of home and leisure electronics products to the Group’s dedicated global IoT network – the largest of its kind in the world.
GLOBALFOUNDRIES today unveiled AutoPro™, a new platform designed to provide automotive customers a broad set of technology solutions and manufacturing services that minimize certification efforts and speed time-to-market.
Recently, Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., established the Samsung Automotive Innovation Fund, a new $300M fund focused exclusively on the automotive market.
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.
This application note highlights some of the RF measurement challenges and introduces Rohde & Schwarz equipment required for relevant RF characterization of car infotainment devices.
This application note highlights signal measurements and analysis of automotive radars that are crucial during the development and verification stages. Particular emphasis is placed on a setup to verify the functionality of a radar in case of radio interference.
This white paper covers relevant trends and examples of innovative automotive sensors that support closed-loop control functions in exhaust gas after-treatment, transmission, and battery monitoring.
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.
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. .
