Sensors in the New Age of the Car

Sensors are inextricably linked to the future requirements of partially and fully autonomous vehicles.

When Will Self-Driving Cars Become a Reality?

Self-driving cars have been all the rage in both the trade and popular press in recent years. I prefer the term “autonomous vehicles,” which more broadly captures the possibilities, encompassing not only small passenger vehicles but mass transit and industrial vehicles as well.

MEMS Fabrication: Growth-Enabler or Industry Roadblock?

The MEMS industry has huge growth potential. Will MEMS fabrication act as a bottleneck to continued expansion or a critical conduit to achieving that potential?

AI and MEMS Sensors: A Critical Pairing

How can consumer-product manufacturers tap the built-in capabilities of MEMS inertial sensors — which are already ubiquitous in end-user devices — to make the most of AI?
