Automotive

Electronics is becoming increasingly important to the automotive sector, enabling the systems which we all expect to find in the latest cars. But those involved in the the sector, as well as those looking to enter the automotive supply chain, need to keep up to date.

New Electronics covers developments in the automotive sector, bringing technology updates and opinion from the market.

Sensors get smarter

AutoSens, which was held at the world-famous AutoWorld museum in Brussels, Belgium, last month brought industry leaders together to look at and assess the most recent developments in the driver assistance market (ADAS).

Interference on the move

When Daimler set about creating a test chamber for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) it wanted an artificial environment that would reflect the conditions its vehicle would meet on the roads of the future.

Redefining transportation

Presented with an acute need to tackle congestion and greenhouse gas pollution, along with the ongoing objective of reducing road fatalities, the field of road transportation is about to go through what is certain to be the biggest shake up since the internal combustion engine was invented.

A far deeper confrontation

What are the implications for the electronics industry from the on-going trade dispute between the US and China, and is it simply part of a much deeper strategic confrontation?

Digital twin to go the distance

Three years ago, Toyota’s CEO declared the company would need to put autonomous vehicles through almost 9 billion miles of testing before they could be deemed safe to use on public roads.

A testing challenge

The challenges associated with the development of autonomous vehicles are immense but, perhaps, testing is the biggest one.

Making connections

PCB Design and Manufacturing Live opens its doors for a second year, welcoming a host of the industry’s PCB experts.

System success

“Software-defined testers will be critical in keeping up with the evolution in automotive design,” said Jeff Phillips, Head of Automotive Marketing at National Instruments (NI) in an interview with New Electronics last year.

A world connected

This year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) was described by John Hoffmann, the CEO of the GSMA (the event organisers), as a bringing together of a “global ecosystem spanning multiple sectors and reflecting the expanding role of mobile connectivity.”

Taking a lead

The setting up of the new Future Networks Lab looks to support and enable the adoption of IoT, LPWAN and 5G technologies.

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.

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.

Distinguishing signal from noise

Capacitive touchscreens are constructed using an orthogonal grid of transmitter and receiver (or ‘drive’ and ‘sense’) electrodes which are usually formed on either side of a transparent substrate and behind a transparent touch surface such as glass.
