A more fundamental change to the industry is being driven by the move to connect cars with each other and roadside infrastructure via the dedicated automotive WiFi standard 802.11p.
As a reporter, this is something I hear about often. While I think I grasp the concept on a high level, it's not clear to me how a number of different wireless "communication" technologies -- in addition to 802.11p -- will play into the V2I, V2V and V2X communication. What are the things that still need to be developed, and how far away are we from that reality?
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.
