Drones Hardware, Drones Service and Drones Software

Image
According to Research and Markets, Global demand for small drones will reach a total shipment of over 44.3 million units and a cumulative market value of $85 billion for 2017-2025 including sales of UAV hardware, software, and service spending. 
This represents a continued and accelerating growth with two-digit CAGRs in terms of sales revenue as well as annual shipment of small drones for a wide magnitude of defense, civilian and commercial sectors. 
For those who are unfamiliar, Drones Hardware primary include: (frame, controller system, propulsion system, sensors, cameras, etc.); while Drones Software primary include (imaging software, GPS, GIS, etc.); and Drones Service include (cloud service, integration, engineering, and management).

Japan’s Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS) will improve the accuracy of signals from GPS satellites

I have a pleasure to recall that, Japan’s Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS) will begin operating in 2018. It is interesting to observe that, the QZSS will be formed from a constellation of Japan's positioning satellites, which Mitsubishi Electric developed in support of the Office on National Space Policy, Cabinet Office (Government of Japan). 
In effect, the satellites will be in geosynchronous orbit with an inclination of 45 degrees in order to pass near their zenith over Japan and above the Asia-Oceania region. This will provide seamless service regardless of geography, and significantly improve the accuracy of positioning in areas where signals from GPS satellites cannot be clearly received due to skyscrapers or natural terrain.

Samsung and Google for the Samsung Chromebook Plus and Chromebook Pro

Image
At the core of stakes, we have a productivity of a laptop with the flexibility and versatility of a tablet. We also have a 360-degree rotating touchscreen, quad HD screen, built-in digitized pen and new lightweight metal design. 
In fact, the Samsung Chromebook Plus and Chromebook Pro are designed for Google Play so you can use all the apps you love in addition to movies, books and music.
The Chromebook lineup the Chromebook Plus and Pro come with a built-in pen. An integrated full-size keyboard and trackpad allows users to write and play from anywhere.

Voice recognition and Sound recognition in our ever-connected era

Image
It is increasingly interesting to see that, Voice recognition has become a standard user-interface in the Smart Home, opening up new product opportunities and use cases. Sound recognition is a different technical challenge from voice recognition and requires a different approach, but like voice recognition, sound recognition creates compelling new use-cases for smarter living.

The most interesting within Online Language Learning Market in the US

Image
The market is on exciting curve in terms of outcomes, policies, adoption, awareness, and the emergence of new pedagogical techniques, to name a few. 
The implementation of innovative learning methods such as flipped classrooms, blended learning, simulations, experiential, and inquiry-based learning is revolutionizing how one get access to knowledge, knowhow, information and data.  According to Research and Markets, changes in the education policy along with the implementation of Common Core State Standards have necessitated educators in the US to enroll in professional development courses to acquire information and communication technology (ICT) and language skills along with techniques to successfully incorporate emerging educational hardware and software in the learning process.

Mitsubishi Mobile Mapping System, the MMS-G220, as an Advanced Mobile Mapping System

Image
The MMS-G220 is paving its way as a highly accurate measuring system using car-mounted GPS antennas, laser scanners and cameras. I can also witness that, the system gathers 3-D positioning data of road surfaces and roadside features to accuracy of 4 inches, allowing the creation of comprehensive 3D maps to the level of accuracy needed to support autonomous driving.  For those who are unfamiliar, the MMS-G220 can be used in a wide range of applications, such as the precise surveying of infrastructure and is especially suited to autonomous driving systems. It is easily mountable, allowing compatibility with multiple car types. The detachable roof-mounted main unit is smaller and lighter than the current more rigid models, while maintaining the same level of accuracy. 
The company will start off by offering the new model in the Asia-Oceania region.
