The Wild West of IoT

To the Edge and Back Again with Avnet and AT&T

by Amelia Dalton

Break out your best show saddle and get those spurs on tight. A whole new paradigm is breaking on the horizon. Join us as Jim Beneke (Avnet) and I ride off into the sunset with our shadows stretched long across this wild and woolly EE landscape called the Internet of Things. We take a closer look at Avnet's new collaboration with AT&T, the importance of security in the IoT ecoosystem, and what developers and designers need to know about IoT that they may not have considered a year or two ago. Also this week, we check out the details of a new robotic pizza delivery system and how PSpice can make your next IoT mixed-mode and mixed-signal simulation a whole lot easier.  Read More

Self-Driving Cars: Unofficial Views

Posted on 04/24/17 at 11:06 PM by TotallyLost

I would like to propose that any executive team that wants to ship/sell/use self driving cars on public roads, should be willing to submit to a self driving darwin test, where a public sourced gauntlet of worst case tests are constructed for that specific…
