Spice is a good simulation engine. Generally an electric cable used inside any system ends up with connectors and other near by running cables and structure. So it is a good idea to add all these peripheral environment in to the spice simulator to check the results before going into a prototype and fine tune the prototype design.
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.
