I like the direction that Microchip is taking with adding more wireless options. I would love to try the MiWi wireless system (just like the name) and wonder what the latency and if there are multiple channels possible. I can see now that I will need to go look it up on Microchip's website. Does anyone have experience using the MiWi?
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.
