  • Automotive Technology Takes the Stage at Telematics Detroit

    The market for connected cars continues to grow at a rapid pace. In fact, a new report from Analysys Mason claims that by 2024, a whopping 89 percent of new cars sold worldwide will contain embedded connectivity. At first the number may seem high, but when you consider the amount of vehicle manufacturers and mobile

  • Bye Bye Batteries: Unleashing the Real Power of the IoT

    There’s something holding back the Internet of Things (IoT) and it’s not imagination, technology or consumer interest. It’s power. I predict there would be billions of sensors at the heart of the billions of intelligent connected devices in use today if these devices didn’t have to rely on some form of battery for power. That’s a problem. Batteries are costly, toxic
