What did you read about in the Industrial Control DesignLine during 2013? Again, just as with the Top Industrial Control Articles for 2013—Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3, I will be counting backwards for three weeks to get to the blogs, opinion and news articles with the greatest number of page views for the year. I’m using the top 13 for obvious reasons…
This first week, we’ll look at items 9 through 13, working backwards. Here they are:
13. Infineon Launches 3D Sensor for Gesture Recognition
German chipmaker, working with fabless specialist in time-of-flight image sensors, has introduced 3-D image sensor chips designed to implement touchless gesture recognition.
12. Infineon, Renesas See Sales Tumble in Industrial Ranking
The top eight vendors saw falling revenue in the industrial semiconductor market in 2012, according to market researcher IHS.
11. Infineon, TI led Industrial Chip Supplier Ranks in 2012
Infineon was the leading supplier of chips for industrial applications in a flat 2012 according to a sales ranking from market analyst Semicast.
10. Snake Robots Slithering on Mars and the World
Imagine a snake robot slithering on the Martian surface connected to a rover buddy robot. A feasibility study is underway to see if a rover/robot snake combo makes sense. Also, want to see the world’s largest fire-breathing robot dragon? It’s all here.
9. World’s First Wireless Phone Linked to Murder & Catastrophe
How did Guglielmo Marconi, a young entrepreneur with limited scientific education, prevail against other great scientists and companies in a race to invent wireless communications?
Come back next week to see the items that snagged the next four positions on the Industrial Control DesignLine in 2013.
