Based on x86 with WiFi and BLE connectivity built in, how does the energy footprint look? The fundemental of wearable is low energy consumption that the ideal runtime of a one charge shall be at least 1 month imo. Nonetheless, given x86 core, the adoption will be high since Edision supports 2 OS and porting of Linux shall be relatively simple.
The strategy is great and if the price point of buying a development board is competitive, Edision might actually gain momentum.
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.
