Sven Beiker shares a video where he was interviewed by SensorsConverge on smart sensors. People are putting more and more intelligence into sensors – which we call smart sensors. Traditionally, sensors used to be a device to measure exactly one thing. But now much more intelligence is going into it and it’s going to become more and more miniaturized, which is pretty incredible. They are talking about what used to be a system on a chip (SOC) is now a…
Sven Beiker shares an article that explains how the biggest challenge facing automated driving is real-world traffic. Nice interview here with SAE International for their monthly magazine “Update“. My piece is titled “Realities of traffic make automated driving a challenge”. It is a conversation around what is missing to bring autonomous vehicles (automated driving to use the right SAE term) to the real world. I am glad that SAE asked as I have been discussing a lot over the years…
  From Sven Beiker, a short and informative post and video on how electric batteries are priced.  After having discussed battery performance improvement last time and figuring out how something like Moore’s Law actually can be applied, this month I am looking at cost decrease over time. One often-used model for this is Wright’s Law, named after the aeronautical engineer W. P. Wright who observed efficiency improvements in aircraft manufacturing in the 1930s. Some of this can be applied to…
