Driverless Cars on the Rise

January 05, 2014
Thanks to advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) ranging from adaptive cruise control to lane keeping assist and automated steering, today’s automobile is very nearly autonomous. The driver remains in control, of course, but built-in sensors, cameras and radars make it possible for the vehicle to take over much of the actual driving task. With new technologies, the fully autonomous automobile will one day be widely available. It’s just a matter of time, experts say, for the concept to move from a research and development exercise to full-scale production.   The Benefits Are Apparent Human error is overwhelmingly to...

Ultra HD Displays

January 05, 2014
Even as its original role as a broadcast television signal receiver diminishes, “TV set” is the preferred term for that familiar device that is now available in countless configurations to show images and programs from unlimited sources. And like the channels they deliver, TV sets never stop changing. Whether you call them “monitors,” “displays,” “receivers,” “tellies,” “boob tubes” or “idiot boxes,” TV sets provide audiences with ever-increasing ways to enjoy shows created, as producers say, “for your viewing pleasure.” And now more than ever, ...

Retail Ideas About Big Data

January 02, 2014
Bose is doing “big data” right by integrating customer service and innovation, says UCLA Marketing Professor Dominique Hanssens. To be specific, Bose is “connecting the marketing function to the product innovation function, which is very impactful,” explains Hanssens, who is also the cofounder and director of MarketShare, an analytics firm. Much of Hanssens’ academic work in the emerging world of big data involves incorporating this often-misunderstood business tool into the repertoire of retailers, manufacturers and marketers. Big data can provide “the metrics to understand what customers want, even at the...

See the Future at CES

December 19, 2013
Filled with all of the magic, energy and promise that drives the $203 billion consumer technology industry, CES is like Disney World for tech enthusiasts—just substitute Orlando’s Magic Kingdom with Las Vegas. This year’s show is shaping up to be the largest hands-on showcase of emerging technology in the CES’s 46-year history, encompassing all aspects of the consumer technology market—from production and design to distribution and retail.   The 2014 International CES® takes place January 7–10, but CEA officially kicked off the show season in October with CES Unveiled expos in London, ...

Digital Health Breaks New Ground at CES

November 25, 2013
An executive racing through an airport slips her hand into her pocket not to fetch her boarding pass but to check her stress level. A doctor checks a patient’s test results and then instead of scheduling an appointment to talk about better glucose management, uses her iPhone to push a mobile app to him. A runner recovering from ACL surgery doesn’t wait for a letter to learn the status of his insurance claim; he logs onto a website and accesses up-to-date information. These are not futuristic, pipe dream promises of the digital health industry—they are real scenarios that are in use today...

The Future of Powertrains

November 18, 2013
Although they still represent a minuscule portion of the overall market for automobiles in the U.S. and around the world, cars and SUVs powered by electricity (EVs) are a hotbed of technological innovation. Automakers and their research and development partners have brought forth not just advances in lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery formulations, but also pioneering weight-saving and manufacturing techniques to make hybrids, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) more efficient. Moreover, the ties between EV automakers, their suppliers, and the CE...

The Visionaries, Designers and Startups Revolutionizing 3D Printing

November 13, 2013
Eight years ago, a young Hungarian inventor named Daniel Ratai walked away with six first prize awards at Intel’s ISEF, at the time the world’s largest international pre-college science competition. He made plenty of headlines—then still just in his teens—for his Leonar3Do, a project that has since broken barriers between the worlds of two and three dimensions in the desktop space. Today, Leonar3Do is innovating a true 3D creative environment for various industries, including the medical community, where the technology kit is being used as a virtual-reality training tool for the next generation of surgeons. ...
