"Remote monitoring and testing are state-of-the-art today, in particular in development and test environments,.."
I agree that remote monitoring and testing would gain more and more popularities and the smart phone would play a major role in that as it would provide a great amount of flexibility & convenience to the people travelling and/or working remotely. I won't need to be anxious in the weekends when there is a test running in the lab, if I get the test data & status on my phone.
I don't have an urgent need to use this technology...just curious...you would think across any platform...I could see that option used extensively....people in meetings could review lab tests in real time
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.
