5G leveraging on Smart Cities and viceversa

5G will require, to achieve the targeted high bandwidth a significant portion of the spectrum, in the order of 100+MHz. In turns this implies the use of much higher frequencies 20-100GHz to accommodate that spectrum (also given that lower frequencies are already assigned) and these higher frequencies have very low …

An antenna for the brain

Wireless communications is about translating an electrical signal flowing in a wire into an electromagnetic signal that can travel through the air. This is done using an antenna. Of course it has to be done twice, once to convert the electrical signal into an electromagnetic wave propagating in the air …

Networked Intelligence makes cars safer

Work is accelerating on increasing the autonomy of cars, aiming at self driving cars in the next decade, and in their cooperation to increase safety. This latter goal, although self evident, is much more complex that it would seem. Imagine two cars, one following the other. It is evident that …

Lick to power …

Over the years I posted a number of news on “labs on a chip”, that is the creation of diagnostic chips that can detect viruses and bacteria. These are particularly useful in areas where it is very difficult to reach a diagnostic lab and quite significant progress was made in …

Smart contact lenses talk with your phone

One of the crucial issues in many IoTs is how to power them in ways that they can harvest data and transmit them to a receiver connected to the Internet. Actually the most difficult part is to power the (wireless) transmission because that is where most power is required. Local …

Health Care leveraging on 5G

In the healthcare area we are seeing a growing attention to prevention on one side and to customisation on the other. Both are leveraging on monitoring possibilities offered by ambient sensors (videocameras, smartphones), wearables (bracelets, smartwatches), contact sensors (contact lenses, patches) and embedded (under skin, injectable). In terms of customisation …

60TB seem huge, till you see 330TB

Last year, 2016, Seagate presented their new SSD storage with a huge 60TB capacity. It is not on the market yet, as of August 2017, and analysts expect a price tag around 40,000$, not exactly for my purse. That means a 0.66$ cost per GB. Compare this with a cost …
