There was a time when some lawyers got organized in NYC (I think). You would report potholes to them. When they got a few reports, they would notify the city which then might become financially responsible for damage to your car if they did not fix the potholes in a timely fashion. So, when you reported and they had already registered the pothole, they would take details about whether your poor little car had been injured. I never actually heard of the lawyers winning a case. I do know the potholes did not get repaired all that quickly. Under topic: you can trust your government. In Oregon, we have many cameras focused on the freeways and highways. They are monitored so the traffic guys can send out trucks, etc in an emergency. They do not have recording equipment on them. The idea is that they do not want to be hauled into court as witnesses.

But lets think of the life savings situations, when a good GPS-featured mobile device could dispatch for help, when the impact has render you unconscious! ( assuming that the device itself survives the impact too, ;-) ) Or the smoke alarm can trigger the call directly to the fire station, and so forth. Although, I think there has to be an improvement on the number of dispatched emergency vehicles. I have seen may times when more than 4 units get dispatched for a simple fender bender.

No -- of course we aren't serious... well, we're serious in that we think this might come one day, but that doesn't mean we are in favor of it.

Are you guys serious? The government has enough intrusion into our life why do I need more of this tracking junk. If we need any more laws its in this arena, tracking of my movements on my cell or whatever should be considered illegal period. Automatic deduction from my bank account???? oh boy we are in real trouble....

Send me your back account details and I'll give you a life-like demonstration of how this will work :-)

I can't wait for the speeding ticket in the mail from a point-to-point GPS velocity calculation, or even better yet, having the fine automatically deducted out of my bank account...a new world of possibilities indeed

Also, can it be linked to the traffic department to optimise the traffic light sequences? Think of the improvements in heavy traffic while deferring road upgrades! Everyone would have an incentive to have the App since then your 'vote' on the traffic flow would be counted. It would also require a upgrade in 'intelligence' in the traffic control room, of course. That might be a while coming. I remember when a local radio station crossed to the control room for their daily traffic update on what happened to be a public holiday. The traffic guy reported that, unlike a regular afternoon, the traffic was mainly heading towards the city rather than out of it. When the radio announcer guessed that that would mean the traffic light sequence would be biased to suit inbound traffic for a change, the traffic guy responded, "Yeah, that would be a good idea. I might just do that!"

We need that here. Maybe if enough people drive over speed humps, they'll come and remove them... :-)

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,...
