Cassidianis participating in the European R&D car-to-Car Content Delivery (CarCoDe) project aimed at developing a platform for ‘smart car-to-car content’. Applications will include for police cars, ambulances or fire engines.
Global ETC systems revenues are expected to grow from $4.48 billion in 2013 to $8.5 billion in 2018, with a CAGR of 14% and North America as the vital region. “Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) is finding new momentum as a way to manage traffic via dynamic toll pricing and address urban congestion issues.
Aeris Communications, the only cellular carrier built exclusively for machines, announced that it is providing network services to the automotive industry on the GSM network in North America, in addition to its long established position with CDMA technology.
Linx Technologies' new DP1203 Series radio-only RF transceiver module is designed for the wireless transmission of digital data at data rates of up to 152.3 kbps. Operating in the 433, 868 and 915 MHz license-free ISM (industrial scientific and medical) frequency bands, this module series is ideal for applications that require full-control of the radio channels and configuration, without having to go through the effort and expense of a discrete RF design.
As part of the U.S. Safety Pilot Model Deployment, the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) will launch a motorcycle study to determine how cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles interact using V2V (Vehicle-to-Vehicle) communications technology from Cohda Wireless.
Astronomers using the new Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) have imaged a region around a young star where dust particles can grow by clumping together. This is the first time that such a dust trap has been clearly observed and modelled. It solves a long-standing mystery about how dust particles in discs grow to larger sizes so that they can eventually form comets, planets and other rocky bodies. The results are published in the journal Science on 7 June 2013.
Aeris® Communications, the only cellular carrier built exclusively for machines, announced it has partnered with SimplyHome, a leader in the assistive technology industry, to launch the most innovative home care solution for independent living – specifically tailored to serve aging and disabled populations nationwide.
The market for disposable wireless Medical Body Area Network (MBAN) sensors within professional healthcare is in its earliest stages, but key foundations to support adoption are now in place. There is also tremendous potential for adoption. So much so that by 2018, close to 5 million disposable sensors will be shipped even though MBAN sensors will have still barely penetrated the addressable market.
