Good to see that the market demand for the UPS products to provide uninterrupted power to the datacenters for "mission critical applications" would have a good growth. As the cloud computing is adopted by the healthcare, infrastructure verticals and there would be an increasing trend of dependency on cloud servers in the other verticals in the industry soon, I expect to see even a better growth rate of UPS for "mission critical" datacenters. Acually I expected that the growth rate of the UPS for datacenters would more or less follow the growth rate of the datacenters, which might be in double digit number.
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.
