Enabling rapid 5G roll-out

With the rollout of 5G expected to ramp up in the coming year, a complete spectrum of test & measurement solutions will be required, according to Meik Kottkamp.

Improving reliability with cryogenics

Cryogenics is the study of the production of extremely cold temperatures and is a field of science that looks at what happens when materials, whether metals or gases, are exposed to very low temperatures.

When development never sleeps

Is software ever finished? As Leonardo da Vinci observed with art 500 years ago, it is not so much finished as worked on until it is time for it to be abandoned.

Securing our airports

A the end of 2018 Gatwick airport and the UK authorities were forced to bring in military teams, using advanced techniques developed on the battlefield, to search for an unauthorised drone buzzing the airport’s runway.

Mobile 3D sensing

VCSEL technology encourages progress in biometric solutions such as mobile 3D sensing, according to Bianka Schnabel.

Importance of effectively simulating analogue production testing

Manufacturing test is an important part of product development and an incomplete test can result in defective parts being delivered to customers. These test escapes - the bad parts that escape test - result in parts being returned especially when target defect rates below one defective per part million (DPPM) are the goal of manufacturers.

Intelligent Audio

As more and more consumers look to film their experiences and share short-form videos through their mobiles, it’s fair to say that while camera technology has continued to advance, the audio quality of many videos has tended to remain poor.

Signs of life

Since Galvani discovered the effect of electricity on frogs’ legs more than two centuries ago, scientists have gradually been able to tune into what the body’s nervous system is doing through charge transfers.

Deep fools

In not much more than a decade, deep learning has moved from a research curiosity to a technology that could underpin a new generation of autonomous vehicles and robots: machines that can respond more intelligently to the world they perceive.

Innovation unbound

Earlier this month the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) took place in Las Vegas, and with over 4,500 exhibitors and upwards of 180,000 visitors it remains the largest consumer electronics show in the US, with a global impact to match.

Definition in demand

Consumer interest in 4K continues to increase and by the end of 2018 4K TV shipments are expected to have passed 100million units, according to market analysts Futuresource and they expect double digit growth through to the end of 2022.

Where next in 2019?

From the first autonomous vehicles to 5G and the realisation of mobile AR devices, here’s what to look out for in the year ahead.

Hackers aims for the jackpot

Early in 2018, a crime surfaced in the US that earned the name ATM ”jackpotting”. Perpetrators would target older cash machines and switch their hard drives. The malware they store simply hands over cash to thieves armed with the right codes. It is just one of a range of hardware-level attacks that are now coming to the fore.

Robotics in social care

Robots and autonomous systems, together with artificial intelligence, connected data and digital infrastructure could have the potential to revolutionise the way in which social and medical care for the elderly is delivered.

Testing the 5G waters

Since the introduction of 2G, there has been a rising demand for data. 5G has been hailed the answer to the ever-growing pressure on network capacity as the demand for better and quicker devices continues to increase and we start to see more ‘things’ become connected.

A postal network for the digital century

The world’s postal and delivery services have been undergoing profound change over the past few years, whether that’s having to scale up to meet increased demand or expanding and modernising their networks.
