Efficiently Monitoring Energy Usage in Battery Powered Systems

Monitoring energy and power can be useful for many reasons. Beyond power management for power and energy savings, changes in energy usage can point to changes in a system that need to be addressed, such as higher than expected energy usage due to a software update or component failure.

Designing for the Future: Evolution of Smart Building Automation Systems

As mainstream consumers become more connected, they expect the devices they use to interoperate, bringing a collective "awareness" that adds value to their day-to-day activities. To meet these expectations, product developers increasingly require robust, scalable software solutions capable of supporting multiple connectivity standards while meeting more stringent cost and power constraints.

Increasing the Level of Reliability of Deployed Software Defined Radios

As SDRs are increasingly being used in remotely deployed applications, a critical gap has emerged in how a remote operator of a Software Defined Radio can ensure the device is functioning and has not exceeded critical operational and environmental parameters. With this gap in mind, new tools are being developed that improve the remote management, maintainability, and reliability of deployed Software Defined Radios by providing the ability to update firmware, recover from errant software or firmware updates, and push critical patches to multiple deployed radios.

Certifying COTS Hardware and Software for Modern Avionics

Certification standards bodies on both sides of the Atlantic are becoming more open to certifying commercial--off--the--shelf (COTS) hardware and software as designers of these systems show evidence Design Assurance Level (DAL) A in their solutions. These developments are enabled by standards such as FACE, OpenGL, POSIX, and ARINC 653 which together enable not only certification to DO-178 C DAL A for example but also drive commonality and re-use across multiple military and commercial avionics platforms, resulting in reduced integration cost and development time.

Healthcare IIoT: Ideas are Easy. Execution is Hard

With each passing day, we find a new market or application where the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are going to redefine life as we know it - from our methods of transportation, to how we purchase goods, to the way energy is transmitted and managed. However, none of these applications will have as profound of an impact on the human race as the application of IIoT and AI/ML to Healthcare.
