I am one of the co-authors of the intraoral Tongue Drive System (iTDS)(Paper 6.8), and would like to thank EE Times for their coverage of the new demo session.
I also wanted to point out that the iTDS is suitable for people with quadriplegia, who can neither use their feet nor their arms, as opposed to people with paraplegia, who cannot use their feet but can still use their arms and hands. FOr more info: www.tonguedrive.com
Really impressed by that Tongue operated wireless remote control. Such technology working to improve quality of life of the physically challenged is always welcome and it is heartening to see that some core R & D is happening in this world where caller tunes and such mobile apps are taking most of developers resources and time world over.
Rick, thanks for the expose on the silicon exhibition. It is ironic that majority of the presenters were from outside the US but they choose to demo in the US! I could only attend few sessions in the afternoon, so it looks like I missed some good demos!
All the researchers and engineers have really displayed the work from all different field and directions. The tiny RFID device if really amaizing and is something different. Others are also really very good.
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.
