Yet another example of the benefits of flexible connections enabled by carbon nanotubes or graphene. It sounds like carbon is making a resurgence this year - and these solutions have the benefit of not adding any rare earths or toxic materials to the circuits.
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.
