IEEE's mission is to collect your money. You can't download papers unless you;'re a member of the IEEE society that published it. In my position as an editor, I often need papers outside my membership. That reminds me to get back in the IEEE I&M Society. I dropped it last year when I changed jobs, but now I'm back covering T&M.
With all the open source initiative, I wonder why IEEE hasn't embraced it. At the minimal, I think they should allow member to access any paper older than 1 year old and public to have access of any paper more than 5 years old. Agree?
I thought about that when writing the piece. Sorry, we're not at 100G for mobile devices. In fact, we're actually not yet at 4G. that will come once LTE-A and other technologies are more fully deployed, which the marketers will call 5G. 5G is already on the drawing board, which the marketers will call 6G or 7G.
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.
