As a DisplaySearch analyst, we absolutely did NOT forecast the uptake of 3D in 2014 to be glasses-free sets. The oncost of 3D processing is low for 120 or 240Hz sets. These are what is forecast. TV set makers will add 3D as a check-box feature, but the glasses and transmitter may not be in the box with the set. Auto-stereoscopic 3D is a long way off still in TV.
The Automatic Radar for cheaper cars technology in my opinion will be very important and can help in saving millions of lives all over the world if it can virtually take control out of those reckless drivers zooming at fastest possible speeds and flouting all traffic rules .
Majority of these technologies listed to watch are in the field of electrical engineering. How about other braches of engineering? Also, in electrical/electroincs engineering there are many other fields left out. Can we have wider look at technology?
Interesting article. I have more interest to see how the mobile 3D technology evolves. The news about A123 to build systems for SAIC is also interesting but I still have some concerns on EV acceptance.
This technology could be great for deaf people who communicate with American Sign Language (ASL). An ASL to text or voice interpreter would allow the deaf community to interact much more with the hearing community.
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.
