Are there any good examples of any mature products utilizing nanotubes or ribbons - in electronics - currently in production? Not to be a pessimist, as I really want to see their advantages used in electronics, but there is a big difference between mixing them into products for 20%-30% strength gains and making them work well in electrical applications.
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.
