Optical MEMS Promise Big Bucks in Micro Spaces Design How-To 9/13/2000 Post a comment Micro-electromechanical-system (MEMS) technology has made inroads in many electronic system designs. The bright future of optical MEMS for display and communication applications proves that really good things can come in very small packages.
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.
