Some alternative stories from the halls of electronica
Steve Rogerson looks at some of the news that may have missed the front page. My travels last month took me to the biggest shoe-leather-eating event in the calendar. Yes, I am talking about the enormous electronica exhibition in Munich, which was even bigger than in previous years. As per usual, I boosted my daily step count to silly levels with the combination of the event and me exploring the bars of Munich in the evening.
The electronics of the future are smart, safe and secure
More than 3,100 exhibitors from over 50 countries provided an insight into the electronics of the future with their solutions and products at the Munich trade fair site from November 13th to 16th, 2018.

LTE-V2X: Automobile direct communication on trial
Traffic networking promises more safety, more energy efficiency, and fewer emissions. To do this, the first commercial technology connects automobiles with the 'curb' via LTE. Smart traffic systems and networked automobiles are the milestones on the way to the completely driverless vehicle. And LTE-V2X (Vehicle-to-everything, V2X) is one of the technologies that may make this happen. It connects vehicles directly with each other, with t...

Retrofit kit designed to aid autonomous driving
Anyone who’s reluctant to give up their 'old' car needn’t go without autonomous features. New retrofit kits will relieve drivers in future of the tedious task of steering.
Lensless computerised camera could assist autonomous vehicles
A new computerised camera without optics uses an ordinary window as the lens. This would enable car windshields to sense objects on the road. All cameras were developed with the idea that humans look at and decipher the pictures. But what if you could develop a camera that can be interpreted by a computer running an algorithm? Why don’t we think from the ground up to design cameras that are optimised for machines and not humans.
Telemedicine saves lives 'for the first time'
In spite of promising projects, telemedicine is still not part of regular care. However, a study which for the first time has proven that telemedicine can extend the lives of heart patients could now put an end to the waiting. Telemedicine is synonymous with technical progress like no other area of health care. Yet in spite of the lack of doctors, e.g. in rural areas, and overworked ER departments, treatments based solely on telemedicine are...
