With the recent changes to workplaces required by the coronavirus pandemic, the need for solutions capable of supporting reduced workforces and socially distant operations has been given an unprecedented level of urgency. Industry has been on a steady march toward automation for decades, incorporating robotics, sensors, and automatic data capture and processing tools to reduce reliance on large workforces and improve quality. We are now on the cusp of a new revolution in automation driven by improvements in computer vision technology and corresponding reductions in cost and complexity of the sensors and computing solutions required to power them. Automation solutions are now more generally capable, cost less, and can be implemented as system level solutions that are integrated seamlessly aside traditional workforces.

Innovative technologies and an expanded Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem have transformed how the world connects, computes and communicates today. Consumer adoption of connected devices has exponentially increased and this can lead to potential issues with electromagnetic interference if the devices being sold do not conform to regulatory guidelines. Imagine a doctor’s handheld device’s signal interferes with the operation of a medical equipment that was being used to monitor a patient in intensive care!

IoT brings a massive surge of smart, connected devices and SMART Wireless has been in the forefront to drive this market with its solutions and products that span over multiple generations of Qualcomm Snapdragon processors and cater to a diverse set of applications.
The current pandemic situation has necessitated virtual events and e-meetings to replace physical trade shows and exhibitions to showcase our solutions. Must is a B2B Matchmaking platform, and brings virtual infrastructural support to companies by using powerful technologies to enable visitors to e-meet and network with other visitors and Exhibitors’.
Smart Wireless is participating in an exciting Virtual Tradeshow organized by Must! Experience it with this link, and select ‘Access to VE,’ then drag to the right and select the SMART logo. With cool graphics and 3D motion akin to a video game, visitors ‘walk’ through the booth as if at a convention center. Enter from the lobby, and ‘walk’ around to see our product presentations and posters.
There are resources to download such as product collateral, and a ‘chat’ function that visitors can use to message in real-time, as well as a meeting request function to schedule a convenient online conference. Give it a spin and join thousands of others!
Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) are a key part of parallel computing on systems where the workloads are shared between the CPU, GPU and other processors. GPUs break complex problems into millions of separate tasks and work them out at once. That makes them ideal for graphics, where textures, lighting and the rendering of shapes have to be done at once to keep images flying across the screen.
