This technology works using a simple webcam, peripheral infrared sensors, and central photo-diodes to scan the driver’s eyes more than 50 times per second. The system then translates the information into data commands for electronically-controlled actuators that align the vehicle’s headlamps. Headlamp actuators react almost instantly to make the adjustments. You will be able to aim your headlights precisely where you want to look both vertically and horizontally
the Intel® NUC provides an elegant solution. These mini-desktops take advantage of low power processors, improved thermals, and small form factor design motivated by mobile platforms. However there is another aspect of mobile computing that lacks penetration in the desktop – and that is touch. - With every tap, pinch and swipe, mobile devices are continually reinforcing the modern way of interacting with technology. Not only is touch ubiquitous on phones and tablets, but now a higher percentage of clamshells offer touch to take full advantage of Windows 8.1. - Because of customer's expectations in the mobile space will drive the "touch" functionality in future systems, we suspect so anyways.
Connecting social signals with physical devices, If This Then That is aiming for the mainstream with its endlessly useful control panel for the internet Could 2015 be the year that IFTTT goes mainstream?
While wearable technology for consumers might be most visible manifestation of the phenomenon known as the Internet of Things, it isn’t going to have the greatest impact on the corporate bottom line. That distinction belongs to industrial smart machines. Read the Full Story >
Consider a Siemens’ plant in Amberg, Germany, that produces PLC's (programmable logic controllers). Smart machines connected to the Internet autonomously control 75 percent of the facility’s production, enhancing efficiency so much that there are only 12 dpm (defects per million) units produced. - Operational Efficiencies is the trend that the IoT will go for implementation that impacts the corporate bottom line. The caveat is in order for that to happen, all of those practitioner's of Lean, Six Sigma, and TRIZ will be needed to identify where those opportunities are to be found and how an IoT solution could be implemented.
The two dimensional material, which is known as molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), is pretty finicky about generating electricity. If it is stacked in an even number of layers, it doesn’t do anything. But use an odd number and stretch it in the right direction, and the electricity will start flowing.
There’s plenty of buzz around the connected car these days. The reason? The cloud. There is a common refrain heard from nearly everyone gathered in Detroit to attend the World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems this week: Connected cars will be the ultimate Internet of Things. They will collect and make sense of massive amounts of data from a…
Aluminum Ford F-150, shed 700lbs hence better towing capability and fuel efficiency than other trucks. The Toyota i-Road is an interesting concept vehicle for an individual's 3 wheeled car, Li-ion powered. An equivalent one from Elio Motor's gets 84mpg, with an eight-gallon tank it can get more than 670 miles in one fill up. with a price tag of $6,800.
An interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers from The MITRE Corporation and Harvard University have taken key steps toward ultra-small electronic computer systems that push beyond the imminent end of Moore's Law, which states that the device density and overall processing power for computers will double every two to three years.
The ultra-small, ultra-low-power control processor—termed a nanoelectronic finite-state machine or "nanoFSM"—is smaller than a human nerve cell. It is composed of hundreds of nanowire transistors, each of which is a switch about ten-thousand times thinner than a human hair. The nanowire transistors use very little power because they are "nonvolatile." That is, the switches remember whether they are on or off, even when no power is supplied to them.
For the first time ever, a paralyzed man can move his fingers and hand with his own thoughts thanks to a new device. A 23-year-old quadriplegic is the first patient to use Neurobridge, an electronic neural bypass for spinal cord injuries that reconnects the brain directly to muscles, allowing voluntary and functional control of a paralyzed limb.
The new technology protects even the communications from the point of card swipe or other payment device attached to the POS. As a result, the conventional POS software running in the conventional Windows environment never sees sensitive transaction data, and neither can malware on the terminal. Intel partnered with NCR in the development of the Data Protection Technology for Transactions, which will be available to retailers in 2015
With the help of Intel, Dublin's brick lanes, lush parks and gray river banks will soon be seamlessly linked with high-tech sensors capable of gathering information such as air quality, noise levels and microclimate data. The project will initially focus mainly on environmental data, but the smart network is designed to implement a range of other applications in the future, from citizen feedback to guiding tourists.
We really like Galielo, it has Quark on it, and this is purpose built for the DIY crowd, we think this is very smart move on Intel's part, essentially creating an open innovation platform for all to use.
And according to my sources the pet project of the CEO Brian Krzanich apparently with much resistance internally to go do it initially,.
To us at the S+IG this is an easy to place bet, in fact plain smart, who else has one out there? No one. which demonstrates vision where others have not, and committment to go against the grain to do the right thing and to explore options and ask the larger community to go do it. We commend Brian Krzanich for doing this, we see this as an excellent example of setting a new standard in the IoT space.. We are reminded of our days in desktop operations when Intel built the majority of the motherboards out there, and everyone bought from Intel, and I mean everyone.
Who else is setting a new standard that people can get behind with technology that goes all the way to the silicon level and can integrate it into a killer platform?
