    The 3D printers of CES
    http://hackaday.com/2017/01/10/the-3d-printers-of-ces-2/

    CES is over, and now we can take a step back, distance ourselves from the trade show booths, and figure out where 3D printing will be going over the next year.

    The Hype Cycle is a great way to explain trends in fads and technological advances. VR and autonomous cars are very early on the Hype Cycle right now. Smartphones are on the plateau of productivity. 3D printing is head-down in the trough of disillusionment.

    For this year’s CES, 3D printing is not even a product category.
    Prusa’s booth listed their company in the ‘Assistive Technologies’ category
    Makerbot presented the only 3D printer on The Colbert Report. Only Makerbot had their 3D printing storefronts featured on CNN.

    This doesn’t mean 3D printing isn’t improving. In fact, it’s the best it’s ever been.

    Large 3D printers have been around for years now.
    However, this year we’re seeing some interesting approaches to building bigger printers.

    This year, Monoprice is doubling down on inexpensive machines with a $150 delta printer, and what might be the least expensive resin printer we’ve seen. There’s going to be a second version of the MP Mini Select, with improvements taken directly from the community’s tinkerers.

    The software stack has always been the weak point of resin printing, and now Lulzbot is working with Monkeyprint to improve the state of SLA printing. They’re working on their own edition of Cura, and the Blender Foundation is getting some help from Lulzbot.

    What does the future hold for 3D printing? It’s going to take a while for the general public to realize that you can do more than print low-poly Pokemon.

    Bosch Dev Kit to Ease IoT
    Kit speeds development
    http://www.eetimes.com/document.asp?doc_id=1331136&

    Every sensor and wireless chip maker is edging into the Internet of Things (IoT) market, one of the fastest growing international markets, predicted to surpass $1.6 billion by 2021 according to IoT Analytics (Hamburg, Germany). Fellow German company Bosch Sensortec aims to maintain its current lead by integrating its microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and other sensors into every IoT device under the sun.

    At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES, Las Vegas) it tried to demonstrate its prowess by introducing a fistful of innovative applications and IoT enablers for original equipment manufacturer (OEM) devices featuring mobility, logistics and Industry 4.0 (the marriage of IoT, cyber-physical systems and cloud computing).

    One premier proof-of-concept device was a cigarette-lighter sized Retrofit eCall IoT that plugs right-in to the cigarette lighter hole (usually called the auxiliary power jack) present on every car. This IoT module turns any vehicle (whose driver has a Bluetooth-equipped smartphone) into a GM-like On-Star or Ford-like Sync equipped vehicle including roadside service, emergency dispatch and even concierge services like finding restaurants and booking hotels.

    To demonstrate how logistics can use the IoT, Bosch showed a Transport Data Logger (TDL). The device is attached to each high-value crate to be shipped, which it monitors with built-in sensors that log temperature, humidity, tilt, location and shocks.

    For OEM’s planning their own IoT devices, Bosch showed its Cross Domain Development Kit (XDK110) which contains a MEMS accelerometer, magnetometer and gyroscope, coupled with humidity, pressure, temperature, acoustic and digital light sensors.

    MediaTek Auto Gambit: Radar, Vision SoC
    MediaTek further articulates its auto plan
    http://www.eetimes.com/document.asp?doc_id=1331120&

    LAS VEGAS — MediaTek, Taiwan’s smartphone chip giant, is dead set on entering the growing automotive electronics market, fueled by the belief that its expertise in high-performance, low-power app processors will help carmakers and tier ones develop effective digital cockpits.

    A common background in smartphone app processors has driven both Meditek and Qualcomm to the automotive market. Qualcomm announced its plan with a bang, through an imminent acquisition of NXP Semiconductors. However, MediaTek, which is opting for a much more organic approach, is facing an uphill battle. The company’s appetite for automotive is understandable. But it remains to be seen if the Taiwan’s fabless company — new to the automotive market — can really catch up.

    Other technologies and products MediaTek has up its sleeve include 77-79GHz millimeter wave radars, ADAS cameras, and “very low-power” vision SoCs, he said.

    Of course, unlike Qualcomm, who will have the luxury of NXP opening doors

    Radar is one of the hottest sensor technologies for carmakers as they augment their ADAS systems.

    IHS Markit Automotive expects the market of radar sensors to grow to more than 50 million in 2021.

    Hsu said that MediaTek’s experience in 802.11ad – multi-gigabit per second speed wireless communication technologies operating over the unlicensed 60GHz frequency band – and related IPs that it developed with IBM will come in handy for designing radar chips.

    The Smart Money’s on Smart Home
    http://www.btreport.net/articles/2017/01/the-smart-money-s-on-smart-home.html?cmpid=enl_BTR_Weekly_2017-01-10&

    The rise of smart home technologies and their adoption is one of the safer bets to come out of the CES show floor in Las Vegas last week. Let’s take a look at some of the smart home-related news that has come out both in the last few days and just before the end of the year.

    Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) has made a slew of announcements of late, including the introduction of a whole-home networking solution. The cloud-based platform, which will be included at no extra cost for customers with a Comcast WiFi gateway device, is intended to allow people to add devices, pause device use during dinnertime, pair WiFi extenders to boost signal strength and use voice controls to see who’s on the network.

    The new service is scheduled to be automatically enabled in the first half of 2017 for the approximately 10 million existing Xfinity Internet customers who have a compatible Xfinity wireless gateway.

    Comcast also revealed that a connected thermostat from Zen Ecosystems has been integrated into the Xfinity Home ecosystem. This is a step toward the relaunch of EcoSaver technology that will help customers reduce energy usage with real-time weather analytics.

    This is a step toward the relaunch of EcoSaver technology that will help customers reduce energy usage with real-time weather analytics.

    Parks Associates agrees, saying that smart home applications are increasingly shifting to voice control. The research house says 44% of U.S. broadband households have used voice control functions on at least one of their connected smart home platforms, including 64% of heads of household ages 18-24.

    The high usage rates among Millennials suggest that voice controls are quickly becoming the preferred means of interaction with Internet-connected devices, and younger consumers especially will see greater value in new smart home platforms with voice control as standard in the user interface.

    Comcast Aims to Make Smart Homes Smarter, Greener
    http://www.btreport.net/articles/2017/01/comcast-aims-to-make-smart-homes-smarter-greener.html?cmpid=enl_BTR_Weekly_2017-01-10

    At the Smart Home Marketplace at CES 2017 in Las Vegas, Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) announced a partnership between Xfinity Home and Zen Ecosystems, the manufacturer of a connected thermostat that is integrated with the Xfinity Home ecosystem and part of its family of core devices. The integration is another step toward the relaunch of EcoSaver technology to help Xfinity Home customers automatically reduce energy usage with real-time weather analytics to optimize a home’s heating and cooling efficiency. According to the National Academy of Sciences, heating and cooling account for about 39% of total energy use in a typical home.

    “Together, Comcast’s Xfinity Home and Zen Ecosystems make ideal partners on the journey to help consumers easily turn their homes with connected devices into smart homes all manageable on one platform – the Xfinity Home platform.”

    Mobile Processors Move Beyond Phones
    Qualcomm, other vendors look to autos, drones, and other applications.
    http://semiengineering.com/mobile-processors-move-beyond-smartphones/

    Mobile processors, also known as application processors, are well-known as the engines that run smartphones, tablet computers, and other wireless devices. But these chips increasingly are finding their way into autonomous vehicles, the Internet of Things, unmanned aerial vehicles, virtual reality, and other applications far beyond phone calls and text messages. Moreover, they are gaining in complexity as they are adapted for other markets.

    This shift was evident at this month’s Consumer Electronics Show. Little attention was paid to smartphones and their apps, even though this is still one of the largest markets for complex SoCs. The real buzz was artificial intelligence, big data, machine learning, and self-driving cars.

    As the market for smartphones and tablets flatten, processor vendors and their many suppliers in design software and services are branching out.

    “Qualcomm maintained its smartphone AP market share leadership despite MediaTek’s strong inroads in 1H 2016,”

    Blurring the lines
    Mobile processors historically have fallen into two main buckets, those with a modem and those without. But that distinction is becoming fuzzier.

    Bigger, faster, more complex
    With these advanced SoCs, bigger, faster, and more heterogeneous are competitive advantages. Multi-core chips are almost required, and the vast majority have between four and eight cores.

    Driving sales
    Arvind Narayanan, product marketing architect at Mentor Graphics, looks to the next wave in mobile processors, with significant growth in AI, automotive-class chips, and IoT. Image sensors are key to self-driving cars.

    “There’s so much demand in that area,” he says. “There’s going to be a lot more chips in these cars. That will help us in EDA.”

    Infineon: What Makes Robo-Cars Zero Defect?
    One-on-one interview with Infineon CEO
    http://www.eetimes.com/document.asp?doc_id=1331142&

    Name the top five semiconductor companies in the automotive electronics market today.

    If you answered NXP Semiconductors, Infineon, Renesas, ST Microelectronics and Texas Instruments, you know too much about semiconductors.

    However, ironically, most of the attendees at a chip-dependent trade show like the Consumer Electronics Show likely have little clue. When talk about the future of automobiles tends to revolve around artificial intelligence and autonomous cars, the companies stealing the show at CES are chip vendors armed with massive processing power – namely, Nvidia, Mobileye and Intel.

    But honestly, you can’t blame the masses for getting excited about the idea of a car that has a built-in supercomputer with trillions of floating point per second (TFLOPS).

    Infineon Technologies, however, is not in that TFLOPS race. “We don’t intend to get into that business,” Reinhard Ploss, Infineon CEO, told us last week.

    Meanwhile, despite the seemingly never-ending M&A activities among global chip vendors, the Infineon CEO said he’s not looking for another big target any time soon.

    Having completed acquisitions of International Rectifier (IR) and Wolfspeed in recent years, Ploss believes Infineon today is big enough, and well-positioned for organic growth.

    At Last, An Open Source Electric Vehicle From A Major Manufacturer
    http://hackaday.com/2017/01/12/at-last-an-open-source-electric-vehicle-from-a-major-manufacturer/

    There is a rule of thumb to follow when looking at product announcements at the fringes of the motor industry that probably has something in common with crowdfunding campaigns. If the photographs of the product are all renders rather than real prototypes, walk away. It is said that small volume vehicle production is a space that attracts either crooks or dreamers, and parting with your money to either can be a risky business.

    It is with interest then that we note an exciting announcement made last week at CES, that the French carmaker Renault are to release an open-source vehicle platform. It is called the POM, and it is based upon their existing Twizy electric buggy platform.

    Bosch’s visions

    The morning opening corresponded to my own case Bosch.

    Bosch’s Executive Board Werner Struth attributable painted a morning presentation, the future of the Internet of Things. Everyone is familiar with the forecast is for example the field of IOT-projected 250 billion in revenue by 2020.

    A couple of degrees more concrete figure came from Struth promised that all Bosch products are in some way connected to the network or to other devices in 2020.

    For example, on top of the oven or coffee residues no longer need to stress about the evening in bed or in the morning on a business trip, but their status can be checked from the phone app.

    Mayfield Kuri is one the most advanced domestic robot (manufactured by subsidiary of Bosch). It can, for example, to identify family members face, and behaves differently family with children and parents. It is possible with, for example, at their eye on the children makings of a built-in camera. The robot uses to communicate beeps little R2-D2 style.

    New ways of creating the kitchen is also available. Smart speaker style Mykie can tell you recipes, and brings with it an entirely new phenomenon – “virtual social cooking”: everyone can to cook at home, and share the experience

    However, most of the world-altering changes will be like motoring. Bosch’s new technologies utilizing the demo can be found in the car, for example, the contact area for providing a virtual haptic feedback.

    Slightly more realistic vision is already becoming a beta-testing, together with Mercedes-Benz: Car will be installed sensors that continuously investigating streets. An empty parking space hits you want, they will indicate whether a cloud service, which information is shared on the Navigator to the goal it has set for other drivers that region.

    Nvidia takes high-end graphics cards to the cloud

    Hardware Manufacturer Nvidia told the CES show quite the news of plans for the future. Nvidia intends to deprive the expensive graphics cards to the cloud, and thus resolve the lack of graphical power, for example, laptops plagues.

    TechCrunchin according to Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said in his speech that the majority of the use of computers is not too low for the new games. The new GeForce Now subscription service allows these players to solve the problem by outsourcing design in rotating the cloud.

    Huang also declares that the delay is small enough for the joy of the game.

    The service works on virtually all computers, including Macs.

    Nvidia today announced the launch of its GeForce Now platform for PCs during its CES keynote tonight.

    As the company’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang noted during today’s keynote, the majority of PCs in use today aren’t able to play modern games simply because they can’t support modern graphics cards. GeForce Now for PCs will simply these potential gamers to access a cloud-based gaming service.

    GeForce Now will be available in March for $25 dollars for 20 hours of play. “It’s basically a GeForce gaming PC on demand,” Huang said. The idea here is to give all of those who want to play PC games but simply don’t have the hardware to do so a way to easily play virtually any modern game on their computers — even if they are Macs.

    That does sound awfully familiar for anybody who ever used the old OnLive platform. That platform, though, depended heavily on support from gaming companies. During today’s keynote, Huang showed the Steam store running on Nvidia’s GeForce Now platform, though, so the number of supported games shouldn’t be an issue.

    To use the service, gamers will have to download a small client. Installing and starting games should only take a few seconds,

    Biggest Robo-Car Roadblock Is Human
    CES 2017 Automotive Recap
    http://www.eetimes.com/document.asp?doc_id=1331148

    In the midst of the glitzy keynotes, the media feeding frenzy and a lot of amped-up floor noise all focused on autonomous cars, it isn’t easy to discern the real news from last week’s Consumer Electronics Show.

    So, here’s our recap.

    What did really stand out this year in the hot robo-car segment? The “human factor” is how we’d sum it up.

    The case for human and social factors was stated softly, but there it was. More companies — including Toyota and Mobileye — are scrambling to address the inconvenient truth that robo-cars pose a man-machine relationship more complicated than we care to admit.

    At issue is how the human factor alters the future of self-driving designs.

    Gil Pratt, CEO of Toyota Research Institute, noted, “As wonderful as AI is, AI systems are inevitably flawed…” Mobileye’s co-founder, CTO and chairman Amnon Shashua, described teaching vehicles to learn human intuition as “the last piece of the autonomous driving puzzle.”

    Frivolity aside, though, that some of these innovations will stick to the wall, and those Internet of Things (IoT) devices will inevitably affect cable operators, requiring more bandwidth, bringing up security issues, and creating opportunities for management.

    CES offered the opportunity to see some of the IoT devices operators might have to accommodate. Here are some that made us smile.

    The Kerastase Hair Coach won the International CES Innovation Award for its WiFi-connected hairbrush.

    The Hydrao Digital Showerhead is a Bluetooth-enabled device that changes color to alert the bather to how much water has been used.

    Spinalli Design jeans buzz on different sides of the body to alert the wearer whether to turn left or right. The company also has a “smart” bikini that alerts the wearer when to apply sunscreen and a beanie that keeps the user connected while skiing.

    Genican revealed a trash can sensor that scans barcodes and creates a shopping list of what to reorder.

    The Ceravo Teclim is a pair of virtual reality shoes and gloves that that give the wearer the sensation of walking on different surfaces or touching different objects.

    Alexa: Secret Agent or Double-Agent?
    http://www.eetimes.com/author.asp?section_id=36&doc_id=1331216

    I’m now sufficiently intrigued with Amazon Echo and Google Home. But when it comes to an actual purchase, I’m still on the fence. What about you?

    Maybe it’s just me. The idea of having “machines” constantly listening to me in the privacy of my living room, bedroom, kitchen or — God forbid — the bathroom? It freaks me out.

    When Nvidia’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang introduced in his keynote at the Consumer Electronics Show something called “Nvidia Spot,” a small artificial intelligence microphone designed to “extend intelligent control throughout the house,” as he put it, I did a double-take. “Did he just say ‘Nvidia Spy?’ ”

    At CES, we also learned that Alexa isn’t just for the Amazon Echo anymore. With the help of Alexa Voice Services, any developer can now add the Amazon virtual assistant to their device; Google’s letting developers do the same with Google Assistant.

    In short, even if I don’t want a microphone eavesdropping on me, I may no longer have a choice.

    This is the new norm the industry was trumpeting at the Consumer Electronics Show.

    Hardware suppliers, software designers and service providers are enamored with the power of AI. The next big thing is AI data centers fully equipped to collect, learn and analyze data, transforming all that eavesdropped data into “information.”
