A collaborative effort by Traquair Data Systems and Hunt Engineering, this is a MUST READ that discusses a novel, extensible architecture addressing key factors that have limited the benefits of multiple DSPs when utilized within conventional multiple-processor architectures.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
