While there is still a lot of demand for better energy storage in the consumer spaces in portable electronics, the lion?s share of the pressure is now coming from the automotive and robotics verticals, where the margin for error when the power runs out is nonexistent. This demand for better batteries in electric vehicles, robotics, and industrial systems is driving a great deal of the development effort today.

The Consortium for Battery Innovation, previously known as ALABC, has been carrying out research into lead batteries for a quarter of a century. We reached out to Alistair Davidson of the Consortium for more insight on current trends in battery technology.
Beyond the primary issue of whether or not cars of the future will be fossil fueled, electric, or hybrid, and the related issue of energy storage and battery densities, is the question of infrastructure and standards. Industry special-interest groups have risen to address these various issues.

OEMs often tout their ?system approach? to design. In theory, this means that they look at the end application, and then design each aspect of the system to meet the needs of that application. Security is no different. The OEM must ensure that there are no holes in the security chain.

The CGSS130 enables 3D optical sensing applications such as face recognition, payment authentication and more to operate at lower power than alternative implementations. According to the company, this means that battery-powered devices can run longer between charges, a key differentiator for OEMs, while supporting more sophisticated sensor functions.

The PanL70Plus unit, which is part of the Bridgetek PanL Room Manager solution, has a central feature set and a 7-inch format display that are identical to the PanL70, but is slightly bigger overall (measuring 232mm x 125mm x 26.4mm). The reason for this being, it can house a 13.56MHz RFID reader (for identification/access purposes), as well as an LED matrix status indicator.

Most software is obtained as a binary executable. The program may run and does what it does, but the user has no knowledge of its inner workings and has no opportunity to modify its functionality.

And all of this is fine.
