Who needs TV in the first instance? LOL

True but that is not to say it is going nowhere forever. I believe it will be common place in the mid to long term simply because it is a more natural way of perceiving scenes.

@Junko: ...you do need to accept the fact that it is really going NOWHERE at this point.

I accept nothing of the sort. I prefer to live in a fool's paradise. I agree with Dire Straits who sang "I want my 3D TV" (or words to that effect :-)

@max, Seriously? When it comes to 3D, you do need to accept the fact that it is really going NOWHERE at this point. Even Hollywood is scaling back 3D film production, and there is no TV programs (including sports) in sight offering 3D coverage!

@Zewde: 3DTV is entirely unnecessary. It is a luxury...

They said that about color TV ... then HD TV (they also said it about adding sound to movies in the 1920s LOL)

If I may add one more thing. As to what you just described as the challenges autonomous cars facing, it is true -- and that's why we also need to build up Car to Car and Car to Infrastructure.

@prabhakar, I agree. Hence the difficulty of pulling off self-driving cars. There are so many unseen factors on the road today, when compared to the controlled airspace. But the analogy does apply in a sense that both self-driving cars are marching toward "auto pilot."

3DTV is entirely unnecessary. It is a luxury, a matter of entertainment purely. Self-driving cars could really be a boon for those with handicaps and other issues who have difficulty operating a car. The hurdles not withstanding, it is a vision that seems worth pursuing--the timeframe the automobile industry is offering may be a bit ambitious, granted.

The technology we have today allows for this, guys. Driving on the wide highways of the US for example does not need much human intervention, I often find myself bored driving over there :) some degree of autonomy would avoid accident I would venture. The issues that are delaying this are mostly legal IMHO (Think aboutInsurance for example).

I think , comparing the planes flying in auto pilot mode with the autonomous  cars is incorrect.

When the planes go into cruise mode, they are assigned a specific height to fly by the control tower and the control tower makes sure that no other plane is assigned the same height in that time slot.  So this is like a road kept empty for a single car to pass thorough. Such kind of provision is not possible for vehicles on the road , there will be thousands of vehicles plying on the same road at different speeds in different lanes with hundreds of intersections .

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
