Helping Collins Aerospace future-proof avionics systems

Helping Collins Aerospace future-proof avionics systems
Future airspace will be filled with drones, commercial aircraft, helicopters, and more. Several prototypes are currently targeting urban air mobility solutions such as air taxis, or revolutionary aircraft models, such as next-generation commercial supersonic aircraft. Add to this autonomous swarm technologies, such as manned-unmanned teaming, and systems for future vertical lift and it’s clear that the technology wave coming to any aerospace manufacturer today can easily become overwhelming.

Best practice in managing a product's end of life

Best practice in managing a product's end of life
Apple’s announcement in November 2018 that it was to cease the reporting of iPhone sales volumes really worried investors. A flattening of sales, combined with doubts over Apple’s projected innovation, impacted on its stock price. Around the same time, Chinese tech giant, Huawei, beat it into third place on smartphone sales and even set their sights on surpassing the leader, Samsung, with promises of foldable screens and artificial intelligence.

Simplification of smart metering through Bluetooth

Simplification of smart metering through Bluetooth
Smart metres play a key role in the digital transformation of cities. Without smart metres, it is difficult to envisage many of the smart utilities and services that will ensure the attractiveness of tomorrow's cities: improved resource efficiency, increased capacity for renewable energy sources, better management of public utilities, and higher overall urban resilience.

The first image of a black hole

The first image of a black hole
This week, the world had a first view of the ground-breaking discoveries brought forth by Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) – an international scientific collaboration aiming to create a virtual Earth-sized telescope. The images of the event horizon of a black hole were constructed from data gathered by observatories all over the globe. Guest article written by Andreea Volosincu, Wind River.

Business models and engineering strategies set to impact robotics

Business models and engineering strategies set to impact robotics
Innovations in robotics was the theme that the recent Hardware Pioneers event was exclusively devoted to. With these regular gatherings of technology’s movers and shakers now starting to be more spread out - staged in cities across Europe and North America too - the motivation for me to attend one of the London events was markedly intensified. As always, the venue was full and the atmosphere filled with energy. By: Mark Patrick, Mouser Electronics.

Improving ATM security

Improving ATM security
While the security of Automated Teller Machines is not necessarily ‘life critical’ as with many other industries (think transportation, medical and some industrial applications), there are certainly financial and identity theft risks associated with these devices. There is much data on the web regarding the various ATM attack vectors, the estimated number of annual hacks and the cost to the industry. Guest blog by Rick Anderson, Wind River.

RTOS application development redefined

RTOS application development redefined
Nearly four decades ago VxWorks revolutionised the RTOS market by enabling a hardware board to connect to a Unix workstation dramatically changing the edit/compile/debug paradigm. This revolution was so disruptive that within ten years many established competitors went out of business or were acquired as a way to be salvaged. Guest blog written by Michel Genard, Wind River.

Comparing analogue and digital MEMS microphone interfaces

Comparing analogue and digital MEMS microphone interfaces
MEMS microphones have been steadily expanding opportunities and functionality into a wide range of devices, now adding communication and monitoring capabilities into the mix. Voice-enabled navigation devices and digital home assistants are examples of such devices driving this change and are helping to boost the huge growth in voice-controlled electronics.

Wireless connectivity - made easy with u-connect

Wireless connectivity - made easy with u-connect
Even for seasoned programmers, it can be a showdown to configure short-range wireless modules to behave exactly as they should. Typically, it is a complex, time-consuming and error-prone programming of embedded systems. If that's your specialty, or if your device needs the full flexibility of programming an application from scratch and single-handedly, our open CPU wireless module variants will meet the needs of experts like you.

Emerging technologies promise new generation of applications

Emerging technologies promise new generation of applications
High precision positioning, low power wide area (LPWA), short range mesh networks, and edge intelligence promise to extend the range of applications for the IoT in the food sector and beyond. If data is a primary driver of industrial digitalisation, the technologies used to gather, transmit, store, and process it are its key enablers. This is also true in the food sector.
