Some alternative stories from the halls of electronica

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.

Medical electronics: Healthier with sensors

Medical electronics: Healthier with sensors
From quantum sensors to sensor pills that you swallow to soft sensors that can be printed on gummy bears: new sensor technologies will improve medical care. Sensors are now an integral part of modern medicine. They are used to monitor bodily functions as well as in diagnostics and treatment. They record bioacoustic signals, such as heart and lung sounds, biothermal signals like body temperature, and biochemical, bioelectrical, biomagnetic, biomechanical, and biooptical signals.

Every second person wants to speak with electronic devices

Every second person wants to speak with electronic devices
The ‘Internet of Voice’ is on the rise: voice control of electronic appliances is important for 59% of German consumers. In fact, every second person in the country wants to have a human-like dialogue via smart voice assistants such as Alexa, Siri, and friends. In an international comparison, Germans are rather reserved when it comes to their conversation wishes.

electronica 2018: the electronics of the future

electronica 2018: the electronics of the future
The 'Internet of the Voice' is on the rise: sixty-two percent of UK consumers consider voice control of electronic devices important. Fifty six percent even want to enter into a humanlike conversation via smart voice assistants (e.g. Alexa, Siri). From an international point of view, the British are rather cautious with their conversation preferences. By way of comparison: 86% of Chinese want to talk to their electronic devices.

Lensless computerised camera could assist autonomous vehicles

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.

What AI and robotics should and shouldn’t be allowed to do

What AI and robotics should and shouldn’t be allowed to do
81% of consumers all around the world would like 'electronic devices of the future' to make their lives easier. However, users have very different views on what artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, and digitalisation should and shouldn’t be allowed to do: 71% of global consumers think that electronic devices should only assist humans. These are the findings of the electronica trend Index 2018.

The trend of autonomous driving – do you trust it?

The trend of autonomous driving – do you trust it?
The secret ingredients for producing sleek vehicles for years have been common knowledge to only car manufacturers. But now, the wizards from Silicon Valley are eclipsing powerful engines and sleek bodywork with invisible algorithms. Until recently, self-driving cars were no more than pie in the sky. But suddenly, everyone is in a rush. Even legislators, who are generally not known for acting quickly.
