The CPU hit factor is not something to be taken lightly, which is why companies turn to a vendor like Rubidium, which offers a small footprint, low resource, cost effective solution as opposed to the larger Nuance product.

I like the system and guess what, my phone has the same function. I just hope we can keep the legislators from limiting the usability.

I had the chance recently to interact the SYNC system in a Ford Edge. It was easy to get to use, with responses to most of the intuitive commands I could think up to control the audio and the climate control. Unfortunately, this car did not have a navigation system, which is where I think the utility of speech recognition can prove most useful. I hope to use some other Nuance-based voice recognition products in the near future, and will report on the results.

It is not just keeping your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road that is important. You need to keep your brain engaged too. If you are swearing at the machine because it is not hearing you properly then you are probably not in the right mood for driving! It has been noted with Bluetooth headsets (which are legal in many areas) that these are as distracting as holding a cellphone to your ear during a voice call. I must say I have not used voice recognition for a long time, but anyone that remembers the Microsoft VR fiasco will remember how bad it can be! I once worked for a telecom company where we tested some VR gear that had been trained to understand British voices. None of the British guys in the office could make it work. Nor me (South African accent). The only guy who could make it work was a Fijian Indian guy!

Very good progress but it has long way to go. Soon CMOS Camera and advance image processing will add to new UI.

Sure! Voice recognition UIs can definitely reduce the distractions for the driver. But some of those voice conversation themselves may be too distracting, for example if the driver happens to get a nagging call from his wife! There will be such situations when the drivers eyes will be on the road, his hands on the steering wheel but his mind getting dragged into some other world and a driver in everybody knows well what disasters can happen when your mind is not on the job at hand.

This is a nice system. The driver can keep the hands on the steering wheel and eyes on the road while operating all the gadjets by giving voice commands. The driver can control the entertainment gadgets,navigation,get the vehicle information,climate control and have telephonic conversation by voice commands.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.

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,...
