Embedded World 2017 EBV booth
In the wink of an eye the second day of embedded world 2017 was over again. The embedded community gathered our booth, that there were literally not breaks to rest. Not surprisingly, because there is so much to see and time is limited. But it was again great fun to talk to the visitors. Yesterday, two of our manufacturing partners, Broadcom and Maxim Integrated, introduced there workstations in little video clip. Today we were able to record the two other platinum sponsors and suppliers, NXP and STMicroelectronics. A specialist ofRead More

During the first day, exhibition visitors usually try to get an overall overview of the trade fair. A bit disoriented the crowd is streaming through the halls.

There’s only a couple of weeks left until the next Formula 1 season will be kicking off. The real fans can hardly wait any longer to hear the engines roar again. Last week we had the honour to use the holy rooms of the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, Italy for a special workshop. I was not about the latest developments of the new Ferrari race car. But the overall topic was automotive vehicles too – different kinds though. Together with our supplier partner Infineon Technologies, we organize the “TQ onRead More
“Digital transformation” – wow, just the sound of these two words screams innovation, future and high-tech. As per definition the term describes the shift of business activities, processes, competencies and models to fully leverage the changes and opportunities of digital technologies and their impact across society.

It’s a matter of fact that society is facing the trend of people moving into cities. Especially in Asia more and more so-called megacities emerge.

In 2050 about two thirds of all people will live in urbanized metropolitan areas. Skyscrapers FullRead More

Smart Agriculture
It’s the time of the year again when days are getting shorter and the sun is not so powerful anymore. High time for a special occupational group. Farmers are in their final throes harvesting their acres before they will be starting all over again tilling their fields for the next year. For sure there is still a massive amount of manual work needed for them, but high-tech has found its way into agriculture for quite some time already. Harvesting machines are getting more powerful, safer and more efficient. But alsoRead More

digitisation
The IoT’s impact on the European industry was the topic in three earlier articles. In the first one we have discussed how new demands will alter economic structures.
