The talk of the table – or at least my end of the table – at the annual Cybersecurity Dinner – hosted by Copper Horse Ltd. – was the dismal state of IoT. Millions of devices are being connected – but no one is making money.
Of course that isn’t absolutely accurate. There are organizations that are able to make money in IoT,… Read More
When it comes to competing with Elon Musk’s Tesla the automotive industry is, in many ways, its own worst enemy. For more than two decades the auto industry – in the U.S. and E.U. – has struggled to bring vehicle-to-vehicle communication technology to market – first as dedicated short range communications… Read More
It’s January so time for me to review what I’ve found at CES this year that relates to cycling.

Industry excitement is manifest in the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) which is facilitating collaboration (among 120+ member) between the automotive industry and the wireless industry, possibly for the first time ever.

Amid the glamor of autonomous vehicles and hot new ADAS features, communication between vehicles and other vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists or infrastructure, generally labeled V2X, doesn’t get as much press, perhaps because adoption is still pretty early or because it’s technology under the hood (quite literally) and therefore… Read More
I have gazed across the Pond in bafflement over Brexit until two days ago. I now grasp the depth and breadth of British anxiety over political and legal ties to Brussels and it boils down to regulatory over-reach.

The often pedantic debate over how cars will directly communicate with other cars and infrastructure will culminate suitably at CES 2019 with multiple C-V2X announcements and demonstrations.
