Good initiative by governments in the merging markets will definitely provide better jobs and better life for the people in these countries. The government should take initiative to fund the in country companies like what brazil has done with the RFID for the cattle and at the same time governments should also encourage leading companies like Toshibha to devleop technolgy.

This is a very good initiative taken by Wernher von Braun Center for Advanced Research (VBC). Brazil will be one of the few developing countries who have taken an initiative of deploying digital TV in the country. Setting up a local research for country TV System will also let the business remain within the country.

Interesting. It is my understanding that in 2006 when Brazil surprised the world by choosing ISDB-T as its digital TV standard, there was something of a quid pro quo whereby Toshiba would help jump start Brazil's semiconductor industry. My understanding is that it was thought that Toshiba would build a fab in Brazil... Perhaps this is a first step... Then-President da Silva touched on this during a speech when the Ceitec fab opened earlier this year.

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.
