5G for IoT

Very recently, 3GPP announced that 5G Release 17 was finalized. One important consequence is that 5G RedCap (reduced capacity) is now real and that means 5G becomes accessible to IoT devices. Think smart wearables (e.g. watches), industrial sensors and surveillance devices. “So what?”, you protest. “I don’t need 5G on my watch.… Read More

LIDAR SLAM min

SLAM – simultaneous localization and mapping – is already a well-established technology in robotics. This generally starts with visual SLAM, using object recognition to detect landmarks and obstacles. VSLAM alone uses a 2D view of a 3D environment, challenging accuracy; improvements depend on complementary sensing inputs… Read More

20 Cones of Confusion

“If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?” is a philosophical thought experiment that raises questions regarding observation and perception [Source: Wikipedia]. Setting aside the philosophical aspects, if one wasn’t present where a sound was generated, the sound was lost forever.… Read More

Discussions of chiplets has been on the rise, ever since the slowdown of Moore’s law benefits. Gartner Research projects semiconductor revenue from systems using chiplets to grow from $3.3 billion in 2020, to $50.5 billion in 2024. With any market opportunity, there are always challenges to overcome in order to realize the full… Read More

face recognition

One aspect of received wisdom on AI has been that all the innovation starts in the big machine learning/training engines in the cloud. Some of that innovation might eventually migrate in a reduced/ limited form to the edge. In part this reflected the newness of the field. Perhaps also in part it reflected need for prepackaged one-size-fits-many… Read More

5G 2021 min

You could be forgiven for wondering why I should push 5G when it might seem marketing is still ahead of deployment. While we may not all have it today, GlobeNewswire (September 22, 2021 12:30 ET) estimates there will be 700 million 5G connections across the world by the end of this year. That’s pretty rapid growth already, though still… Read More

Do you use Tile or other Bluetooth tracking devices? If so, you know that such devices, attached to your car keys or wallet, created a small stir. A way to track down something you can’t find. Very neat but hardly revolutionary. One of those consumer tchotchkes as likely to be handed out as trade-show swag as purchased.

So why did Apple… Read More

When thinking about positioning you probably first think of navigation. The device in your car that helps get from where you are to where you want to be. Or navigating while hiking in the backcountry. But those applications are not the where the big unit growth will come. The biggest demand will be in asset tracking, expected to reach… Read More

Sensors Characteristics

One meaning of the word “reckoning” says it is the action or process of calculating or estimating something. But dead reckoning? What does that mean? Believe it or not, we have all deployed dead reckoning to varying degrees of success on different occasions. As an example, when driving on a multi-lane winding highway and direct … Read More
