VR Animation in Car Design

November 20, 2014
Long before a car rolls into a showroom, designers and engineers are employing CE gadgets like virtual reality (VR) glasses along with sophisticated computer hardware and software, motion tracking systems and Hollywood-style animation tools to design and visualize what a vehicle will look like and anticipate how people will interact with it. But the bounty isn’t limited to the finished product, auto industry insiders say. By reducing the number of prototypes and clay models needed, these technologies are helping to lower production costs, too. Once the new vehicle is introduced, consumers can see the...

5G: The Mobile Tech of 2020

November 14, 2014
Gazing into the mobile communications crystal ball is a risky business, but amid the haze some things are clear about the smartphone network of the future. The main task of carriers and handset makers in the next few years, and one in which billions of dollars of research and development (R&D) funds will be spent, is to develop a network that can meet the consumer’s insatiable desire for more data at faster speeds. This trend is causing global mobile traffic to double every year, according to Cisco Systems. Topping the consumer wish list is the expectation that it should take significantly less time for...

The Rise of the Machines

October 22, 2014
Since the invention of the first machine, humans have been the managers and overseers of our creations. We are directly involved in the work being done or we set our devices to a task and walk away. But now, the traditional roles are being supplemented by a new relationship. Technologies we have been developing for years are not just bearing fruit – they are working with each other to accomplish tasks without our direct supervision.   Wireless computing, robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) have been in development for years. Taken alone, there have been numerous incremental improvements. But a disruptive trend is emerging that is larger than just individual...

Ghost in the Machine: The Predictive Power of Big Data Analytics

October 08, 2014
Let’s get one thing straight: There is no single correct definition of the term “Big Data.” As a concept, Big Data has been thrown around by practitioners, pundits and poseurs for years and is now a term exhausted by overuse. But that does not make it any less important for understanding how the world around you really works, and how services and goods you use every day have been shaped and delivered using Big Data technologies. Did you know that the food you eat was grown with the aid of Big Data? Or that the car you drive can navigate thanks to the decision-making power afforded by Big Data? Your actions can...

Looking Forward

October 03, 2014
As a technology association on the front lines of innovation, we at CEA like to think we have a handle on what’s to come when considering the future of technology. It may seem naïve given the speed of our industry, but some technologies are hard to miss and even harder to ignore. Five Technology Trends to Watch strives to put the focus on the technologies – in our pockets, in our cars, in our homes or otherwise – that will shape tomorrow. Whether emerging or present, these are technologies to watch. 3D Printers One of the most talked about new technologies is 3D printers, and CEA expects consumers to embrace...
