Watches are no longer just for telling time. Smart watches have turned our wrists into smart phone holsters by enabling text messaging, phone calls, and health monitoring. A wearable is a wireless device ?almost always? worn by the user.

Last year, I shared my views on some of the challenges the mobile VR industry was facing. I felt that while the hype was high, delivery on what was promised was nowhere near expectations. Many of the systems I saw were still tethered to a PC or needed a heavy battery in a head-mounted display (HMD).

Machine learning at the node is starting to become a reality, thanks to the availability of adequate processing capability. Moving this technology from the cloud to the edge, a term that?s sometimes used synonymously with the node, provides a big leap in being able to process elements in near-real-time. This idea was the basis of the discussion I had with Brian Faith, President and CEO of Quicklogic in this week?s Five Minutes with?discussion.

It?s important for car makers and Tier-1 suppliers to choose their file system implementations wisely. File systems impact read and write performance of the storage, the integrity of the data stored, flash endurance or the lifetime of the memory hardware, and data and storage interoperability.

Safety, availability, and cost considerations can make performing thorough tests of embedded control devices using the complete system impractical. Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation is a real-time test technique used to test these devices more efficiently.

Just how smart can a smart home get? Tomorrow?s home is a true a brainiac, making decisions for you before you even think to tell it to. A hundred years ago, a smart home was one with the first electric home machinery. Fast forward to the 1980s and smart homes were samples of ?cybertecture? (cyberspace?s influence on architecture), according to the National Association of Home Builders.

In the age of IoT transformation, emerging architecture and technology spider webs through multiple arenas of IoT infrastructure. All these devices need communication bridges to pass raw data through the network to reach central servers for processing. And how well a sensor is designed forms the backbone on how well the data is captured and communicated.
