ST Microelectronics is having one of the best periods of its existence, thanks to MEMS. It is taking down giants like Freescale with innovative and cost efficient MEMS designs. Will be good to read what they have in mind for MEMS in the future.
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.
