Big Mother Gets Street Smart
6/6/2013

Pedestrian navigation, anyone? Movea's data fusion solutions, which include data and processing models, engines, and ecosystem-enabling tools for rapid prototyping, development, and integration, may be just the thing for context-aware applications.

Creeped out? I agree Chuck. Yet Big Mother will find a welcome place in our lives if she saves time and makes daily tasks easier. I've been surprised by the acceptance of GPS in the form of a woman's voice. I find it annoying, but I've watched the acceptance -- a daily task made easier.

I suppose this was inevitable, given the power of MEMS. But I have a feeling that a lot of this contextual awareness will be wrong in many cases. I also suspect that some people will be creeped out by these capabilities, even when they're right.

As frustration builds while being forced to learn the new UI of yet another new Phone, Tablet or other electronic device, I see myself lying on the proverbial Brown Leather Couch, being analyzed be Dr. Freud.  As it turns out, I hated Big Mother. 

Rising irritations would naturally subside if She just quite trying to guess what I'm thinking, and nurture my own ability to help myself using the base technology.  I mean; stop trying to constantly improve things by complicating them.

ABI Research, a firm based in the UK that specializes in analyzing global connectivity and other emerging technologies, estimates there will be 40.9 billion active wirelessly interconnected “things” by 2020. The driving force is the usual suspect: the Internet of Things.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is frequently defined by consumer or healthcare applications. It’s important to remember, however, that IoT offers at least as much potential to industry. One of the most promising subsets of industrial IoT is embedded vision -- or machinery that can see, interpret data, and act accordingly.
Going back to older application notes or archived CEC courses remind us of some of the most useful tricks and techniques we can use to reduce the power dissipation in an MCU-based design.
The Internet of Things is bringing smarter production processes to the factory floor and simultaneously driving data volume and diversity up -- quickly.
New flash welding innovation uses hydraulic motion control, and enables patented welding process for as much as 50% less cost.
