It's about time that standard plug and play interfaces are available for medical devices. Standardization of these interfaces and the availability of full-stack solutions will make it simpler and less costly to add the interfaces and ultimately drive down costs for the devices while improving their interoperability. A win-win for everyone.
Providing The plug-and-play communications is a definite advantage . Apart from reducing the design overhead for each application engineer to implement the protocol stack , it also removes the probability of bugs getting introduced in the communication software.
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.
