In the mobility space, Israel is rivaling Silicon Valley for smarts and start-ups - and beats it in chutzpah.

“We're gonna need partnerships, big and small, particularly with start-ups,” Ford Motor Co. chairman Bill Ford announced at his company's newly-opened research center in Tel Aviv last June. “The tech ecosystem here in Israel is unbelievable,” he added, citing a lack of hierarchy, a highly-educated talent base, leadership that is sharpened by mandatory service in the Israeli Defense Forces, and “the ability to move fast.” He described the new facility as “lifeblood for what Ford Motor Co. will become in the future.”

Though likely to provide the OS of autonomy, BlackBerry also anticipates a larger shift to automobiles as software platforms.

At 2019's TU Automotive conference, Autonomous Vehicle Engineering spoke with two of the industry's most important software sages, BlackBerry's John Wall and Kaivan Karimi, both senior vice presidents and co-heads of Blackberry Technology Solutions. The duo's division includes BlackBerry's security services, the nigh ubiquitous QNX architecture along with products including Jarvis, Certicom and Paratek for the Waterloo, Ontario-based company. Sort of like chatting with the Obi-Wan and Yoda of secure-software architectures, the interview provided an animated back-and-forth between the two well-acquainted BlackBerry execs, discussing the emergence of the vehicle as its own software platform.

To win acceptance, deployment of facial-recognition technology needs to fit within a picture-perfect consumer and legal framework that balances benefits with privacy protection.

Whether it's using your face to confirm payment over your smartphone, monitoring your child at day-camp, or being confirmed as a ticketholder going to a concert, the possibilities for facial recognition technology are virtually endless-and the technology already has become ubiquitous.

‘Smart’ in Ohio's Heartland

With a 45-year history in vehicle testing, Ohio's Transportation Research Center launches a $45-million investment in the automated-vehicle future, becoming North America's largest dedicated AV test facility.

As notions advance regarding the evolving needs and requirements of automated-vehicle (AV) testing, there's a concurrent focus on the capabilities available from the world's comparatively meager number of suitable test facilities. Physical testing of AVs-and vehicles with advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS)-in controlled environments is crucial, but demand for independent testing capacity continues to swell.

Well aware of the relentless hype that comes with automated driving development, ZF's autonomy boss knows cost will be crucial-and customer persuasion required.

“We are constantly asking this question: Who is the customer likely to buy an SAE Level 4 autonomous vehicle in the consumer passenger market?” This is one of the key queries that drives the thinking of Torsten Gollewski, head of autonomous mobility systems at ZF. The global Tier 1 is playing a crucial role in enabling the next generation of mobility.

Understanding Fiber Optic Transceiver Design and Test Rules

Aerospace & Defense Technology: September 2019

Published 2019-09-01 by SAE International in United States

The design of avionics systems must balance several factors. First, engineers want to increase the performance of the systems installed in aircraft or spacecraft. Second, they want to reduce the size and weight of the equipment that must be carried. Third, they want to maximize the safety of the in-flight systems and maintain communication between the aircraft or spacecraft and other flight vessels and the command center, regardless of the circumstances.

Shape-Shifting Origami Could Help Antenna Systems Adapt On-the-Fly

Aerospace & Defense Technology: September 2019

  • 19AERP09_05
Published 2019-09-01 by SAE International in United States

Conventional reconfigurable electrical and radio frequency (RF) structures commonly used in applications involving real-time reconfigurability in response to fast varying operational scenarios require specialized substrates or complex electrical circuits. Origami-based RF reconfigurable components and modules offer a solution with unique properties. First, they enable reconfigurability over continuous-state ranges (as opposed to discrete states). Second, they do not require specialized mechanical support for multilayer frequency-selective surface structures. Moreover, deployable origami-based RF structures can achieve large surface reconfigurability ratios from folded to unfolded states. Finally, these structures allow for independent control of multiple figures of merit: bandwidth, frequency of operation, and angle of incidence.

Spatiotemporal Imaging Exploiting Structured Sparsity

Aerospace & Defense Technology: September 2019

  • 19AERP09_07
Published 2019-09-01 by SAE International in United States

Overcoming the conventional limits of spatiotemporal imaging by applying compressed sensing and sparse representations to reduce the amount of data acquired while maintaining high image resolution.

Spatiotemporal imaging contains a large class of imaging problems, which involve collecting a sequence of data sets to resolve both the spatial and temporal (or spectral) distributions of some physics quantity. This capability is exploited in numerous different fields such as remote sensing, security surveillance systems, astronomical imaging, and biomedical imaging. One typical example is hyperspectral imaging, which is a powerful technology for remotely inferring the material properties of the objects in a scene of interest. Ultrasonic and thermal imaging are other important examples of spatiotemporal imaging where high spatial resolution is needed for urban planning, military planning, intelligence and disaster monitoring and evaluation.

The eighth-gen (C8) Corvette is a creative mix of novel and traditional technical solutions unleashed at a shockingly low base price.

Two days before the 50th anniversary of astronaut Neil Armstrong's leap for mankind and 10 years after General Motors emerged from bankruptcy, the camouflage was finally ripped from the eighth-generation (C8) 2020 Chevrolet Corvette. As widely anticipated, C8 now flaunts a mid-engine layout that ostensibly puts it on equal terms with the world's most venerated supercars.

Engineering electromagnetic fields in 3D dielectric structures to change the way components are designed and fabricated for high-energy laser (HEL) applications.

The scope of this research radically changed the way novel components are designed and fabricated for high-energy applications. This 3D Meta-Optics platform was, and is, essentially engineering the electromagnetic fields in 3D dielectric structures. The results have provided a class of transformational optical components that can be integrated at all levels throughout a high-energy laser system.
