Signs have been guiding mankind with information for centuries, with some of the earliest commercial signs being made out of stone and terracotta. Today, signs can range from simple metal panels with information painted on them, to electronic signage that lights up to convey signals (e.g., traffic control signals) or other information. Now, even the humble sign has gone digital with dynamic functionality including multimedia, interactivity, and artificial intelligence (AI).
With the proliferation of 4G and 5G being rolled out in many regions, mobile network operators (MNOs) are focused on freeing up spectrum to be repurposed for faster and more efficient technologies. This is leading to the retirement of services and equipment that currently support 2G and 3G cellular connectivity. In this blog we will look at the implications for developers of what is being called “2G/3G Sunsetting”. We’ll help you understand why this is important, when and where it's happening, and what you can do to prepare for it.
Wi-Fi 6 officially arrived with the release of the certification program in September 2019 from the Wi-Fi Alliance. This new generation of Wi-Fi is based on the 802.11ax Wi-Fi standard and comes with great benefits, especially improving performance for both Wi-Fi 6 devices and legacy Wi-Fi devices in today’s ultra-dense shared environments. Let’s take an introductory look at the building blocks of this new technology and some opportunities it offers IoT developers.
Remember when I posted that that our Qualcomm® Robotics RB3 Platform wasn’t very pretty, but it was very smart? Sahaj Sarup, application engineer at 96Boards, proved that by building a seeing, hearing robotic arm around the RB3. This post from Sahaj recaps noteworthy steps on his software and hardware path to getting a 6-degrees-of-freedom (6DOF) arm to work with voice and computer vision (CV). Let’s hear from Sahaj...
