Linux containers benefit small-footprint edge applications

Linux containers benefit small-footprint edge applications
While Linux containers have been around a long time and are widely deployed in data centres and IT environments, the lack of easy-to-use pre-integrated platforms and lack of interaction with a broader ecosystem have prohibited their use in small-footprint edge systems.

AI-enabled video surveillance and analytics

AI-enabled video surveillance and analytics
Collaborating together WiZR and Wind River are offering AI-enabled video surveillance and analytics on the Wind River Titanium Cloud virtualisation platform. Titanium Cloud is a commercial-ready, NFV infrastructure software platform that enables service providers to deploy virtualised services faster, at lower cost, and with the high reliability that industries demand. WiZR has validated and pre integrated their solution as part of the Wind River Titanium Cloud ecosystem program to ensure companies can securely manage their camera streams and analytics on a stable NFV.

Two eyes see more than one and this applies to V2X receivers

Two eyes see more than one and this applies to V2X receivers
Vehicle‑to‑everything, or V2X, is a groundbreaking technology with the potential to dramatically improve road safety, saving thousands of lives each year. Developed and tested over decades, it uses wireless communication to offer vehicles 360° awareness of what’s going on around them, beyond line of sight, and with up to one kilometre range.

Design considerations when choosing a MEMS or ECM microphone

Design considerations when choosing a MEMS or ECM microphone
Conversational interaction with smart machines such as home digital assistants is a growing trend, and just one that is driving development of new high tech products that can listen to their surroundings, interpret commands, or gather contextual or environmental data. By Bruce Rose, Principal Applications Engineer, CUI.

In the IoT small things can make a big difference

In the IoT small things can make a big difference
The Internet of Things (IoT) is more than the sum of its parts, even if those parts are expected to number in the tens of billions within this decade alone. The size, shape and scope of those things will vary massively, but as a concept the IoT is often presented as smart sensors enabling smarter infrastructure. And in some cases, that is exactly right.

The time u-blox took a trip to space

The time u-blox took a trip to space
For a few seconds, everyone at the SwissTech Convention Center (EPFL) held their breath as the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket of Spaceflight SSO‑A: SmallSat Express mission took off towards low Earth orbit from Space Launch Complex 4E (SLC‑4E) at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, USA. The rocket’s payload included a CubeSat nanosatellite designed by Astrocast, a prototype to test the 64‑satellite constellation the Swiss company intends to seed into orbit to provide a global communication satellite network for remote IoT and M2M applications.

From 2D to 3D: the way forward for cities under pressure

From 2D to 3D: the way forward for cities under pressure
What might tomorrow’s cities look like? To make predictions of the future is to move on treacherous terrain. That’s OK, let’s be bold. The picture above shows a city’s lower airspace is a regulatory greenfield waiting to be conquered by autonomous services, to the benefit of its residents.
