The streets of Dubai are known for hosting some of the world’s most expensive sports cars. Brands like Lamborghini, Ferrari, and BMW are a common sight in the desert strip. However, a new type of vehicle is making its way through Dubai’s “Business Bay,” an autonomous bus.
This bus, trialed in a coordinated effort between RTA and Dubai Properties, isn’t really a traditional bus at all. It has no driver, and can accommodate 10 passengers in six seats and four standing positions. It’s also totally electric, being able to travel for eight hours between recharging.
This is the third vehicle of its kind to be tested on the streets of Dubai. The first two took place at Dubai World Trade Centre and Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard. Business Bay visitors will be able to take advantage of the vehicle throughout its trial.

Cold chains are the hidden lifeline of much of the modern world. A cold chain is the sequence of cooled storage and refrigerated transport which keep produce fresh, vaccines viable, and families fed. This often requires very precise controls. For vaccines, a sensitive product, the cold chain is carefully crafted to maintain temperatures typically between two and eight degrees Celsius. Such a tight temperature range mandates a stringent process and the necessarily tight-knit infrastructure to support it.
Could hybrid smartwatches bridge the gap between early adopters and regular people? That’s the hope of Sonny Vu, CTO for connected devices at Fossil Group.
Vu detailed a plan to create a new generation of smartwatches in a panel discussion at Web Summit 2016. These smartwatches are actually hybrids which are as technically sophisticated than the current generation of smartwatches, but with the look and feel of a more traditional watch.
Hybrid smartwatches would become a new addition to the wrist-worn wearable market. Vu said, “Tracker wearables and display smartwatches are already known, but there’s a new category with hybrid smartwatches, which have a regular analogue display but do more than just tell the time.”
There are some obvious setbacks with hybrid smartwatches to the tech enthusiastic. They don’t have the digital touchscreen or live interaction of a more full-featured smartwatch such as the Apple Watch, FitBit Blaze, Pebble Time, Continue reading "Will hybrid smartwatches prove a more tempting solution to consumers?"
The Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate has announced the selection of 10 start-up companies to be part of EMERGE 2016: Wearable Technology, an accelerator program designed to bring start-ups, accelerators, and other strategic partners together in a common research and development effort. The program operates in conjunction in conjunction with TechNexus and its partner CIT.
First responders such as police, fire and emergency services have a tremendous need for devices such as body-worn electronics, advanced sensors, and integrated voice and data communications embedded within their gear. Hands-free wearables can integrate multiple technologies and minimize additional equipment while maximizing effective response efforts.

Transportation has been vastly underfunded in the past two decades, according to most Democrats in the House and Senate. President Obama tried to raise taxes on oil imports and gas usage to fund transportation projects, but Congress has been a stone wall, refusing to raise taxes or spend more on infrastructure.
You would think under Republican President-elect Donald Trump, things are about to get worse, but the billionaire businessman has advocated for more infrastructure spending throughout his campaign.

In his announcement speech, Trump spoke about the need to spend more on our infrastructure: “We have to rebuild our infrastructure. Our bridges, our roadways, our airports.” Trump also lambasted Hillary Clinton’s infrastructure plans, which included $500 billion in spending and loans, saying more is needed.
It sounds like Trump is willing to spend hundreds of billions, if not Continue reading "What happens to transportation projects under President Trump?"
Samsung announced this week that it will be incorporating digital assistant technology, named Bixby, into its upcoming products. This AI assistant was trademarked by Samsung last month and is created to act as a digital assistant for managing personal information.
Vice Chairman of Samsung electronics, Lee Jae-yong, explained the company’s goals of improving its position in the Internet of Things world by providing voice-assistant technologies in home appliances and wearable devices as well.

The Centre for Urban Science and Progress at New York University has recently released the findings from a smart city pilot study. It’s the first in-depth analysis of a local New York Neighborhood intent on measuring the quantified community. They utilized IoT sensors to collect and analyze quality-of-life measurements at high spatial and temporal resolution in the neighborhood of Red Hook, Brooklyn.
Red Hook is an economically disadvantaged neighborhood. There is no subway service, only a few Internet hot spots and close to 70 percent of the population lives in New York City housing projects. Residents experience an asthma rate of more than 2.5 times that of the national average and more than a third live below the federal poverty line. The life expectancy of residents in Red Hook is 10 years lower than the national average. Red Hill was significantly affected by flooding caused by Hurricane Sandy in
In Kowloon East, Hong Kong’s testing ground for smart city development, officials are asking for the public’s opinion on a suggested framework for the city.

A new study predicts that smart cities will be going green in a big way over the next five years, driven by international efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
A new report from research firm Gartner predicted smart cities will move the sustainability file forward in line with the carbon reducing Paris COP21 deal.
COP21 was signed on by 195 countries and seeks to substantially curb greenhouse emissions by cities.
In light of this, Gartner expects that at least half of global smart cities will use climate change, sustainability and resilience as key performance indicators by 2020.
“With the Horizon 2020 goals of energy efficiency, carbon emission reductions and renewable energy in mind, many cities in Europe have launched energy sustainability, resource management, social inclusion and community prosperity initiatives,” said Gartner research vice president Bettina Tratz-Ryan.
This report comes as industry pundits are suggesting that smart cities are inheriting the environmental Continue reading "Sustainability will be driving the smart city bus by 2020"
In the rapidly evolving world of Internet of Things (IoT), Huawei’s narrowband technology is getting increased attention.
The Chinese networking giant announced it won a gold medal at the recent World Internet of Things Exposition in Wuxi, China.
The award recognized Huawei’s narrowband (NB) cellular IoT advancements, which the company says has helped boost industry confidence in the NB-IoT chain’s rapid development.
In particular, Huawei has conducted several tests of its technology that have exceeded industry specifications in regards to Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN).
Narrowband is a LPWAN technology that uses licensed spectrum to provide communications over long distance.
“NB-IoT technologies fully meet the LPWA market requirements for deep coverage, mass connectivity, ultra-low power consumption, and ultra-low costs,” said Huawei IoT manager Zhu Cheng. “With this leading NB-IoT solution, Huawei will continue working together with carriers and vertical industries to promote the implementation of commercial NB-IoT applications.

The neck cooler reduces body temperature to moderate levels, which is a necessity in the UAE where temperatures regularly exceed 35C. The UAE has a mandatory summer break between 12:30pm and 3:00pm, but afterwards temperatures still surpass workable levels, leading to exhaustion and illness.
Emerson claims that the neck-cooler works in temperatures below 45C and is able to instantly reduce the body temperature of the wearer. The wearable also absorbs sweat from the neck. It lasts around an Continue reading "Emerson provides UAE workers with neck-cooling wearables"
A recent trial for a mobility scooter that is self-driving completes a lengthy process of testing the software designed by researchers from the National University of Singapore, the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology and MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.
The same sensor configuration and software has been used in trials of golf carts and self-driving vehicles too. Theoretically, an individual struggling with mobility could use this autonomous scooter to move through hallways and lobbies, or a self-driving golf cart to get across a parking lot and into an autonomous car.
The new test runs of these vehicular machines prove that the research group’s control algorithms can work both indoors and outside, which is great news.

The world’s largest car chipmaker, NXP Semiconductor, expects self-driving cars and connected devices will drive a wave of consolidation in the microprocessor sector.
Euronews recently discussed an accelerating consolidation trend currently underway in the chip manufacturing market.
A pivotal tie-up in the sector was Qualcomm’s $38 billion acquisition of NXP last week.
Much of the business case behind Qualcomm’s purchase was NXP’s position as the world’s largest chip maker for the automotive industry. And the NXP deal won’t likely be the last car-related merger in the near future.
The chip sector consolidation is being fueled by the projected growth in autonomous vehicle technology and the Internet of Things (IoT). These technology darlings are replacing smartphones as drivers of growth, as phone sales growth continues to flatten.
Automotive has been driving M&A and will be the force behind M&A in the chip sector for some time,” said NXP’s general manager, Automotive, Continue reading "Connected cars driving consolidation in chip sector"
One of the latest trends in the world of technology and engineering is “machine learning” — in fact, all of the big technology companies today have invested in artificial intelligence and machine learning projects.
The term “machine learning” was first defined by Arthur Samuel, way back in 1959. He defined it as “the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed,” which basically means that a machine could learn from its own mistakes and reprogram itself to improve its performance over time.
The idea gained popularity in the 90s when the concept of data mining came into existence. Data mining uses algorithms to look for patterns in a given set of information, which led to data-driven predictions and decision making. This encouraged engineers to develop complex machine learning algorithms by making use of data mining and predictive analytics.
Innovations that are driving business advantage
Today, machine learning algorithms are already being
The future of connected vehicles is gradually becoming reality. It’s an evolutionary process that relies on consumer support and legislative change as our populations must not just accommodate but transform their mindset to a new way of travel.
Given these challenges, I was excited to speak with Head of Design at BMW Motorrad, Edgar Heinrich, following the release of the BMW Motorrad VISION NEXT 100.
Unlike the gradual, cautious approach to connected vehicle designs of other companies, Heinrich and his team were given carte blanche to create a motorcycle for the future, specifically the 2040s, in honor of BMW’s 100th anniversary.
It’s one in a series of BMW concepts that aim to anticipate where its future vision is going, and how incorporating new technologies and connectivity features will change the driving experience.
The bike on first glance appears like something out of a manga television series or sci-fi program. The
On Friday, David Plouffe, chief strategic adviser of Uber Technologies Inc, announced intentions to create a new market and assist smart cities with developing better transportation systems, instead of generating competition.
While at a technology forum in Taipei, Plouffe went on to explain that a lot of Uber clients aren’t taxi users, and that the company gives opportunities for drivers to create an extra income for themselves, outside of their main careers.

Plouffe said that ride-sharing is similar to hiring a vehicle with a driver, yet it differs in many ways too. The legal rules that regulate markets are necessary, and Uber stated it would like to assist governments with changing the regulations for ride-sharing and lowering the entry barrier to the ride-sharing market.
This response came after the Taiwanese government repeatedly fined Uber for violating regulations on running a transportation Continue reading "Uber works to build out smart cities ride-sharing infrastructure"
If you use a computer to conduct business, then you’ve probably heard of cloud hosting. Also called “cloud computing,” cloud hosting is a digital network that lets business owners save their files, computer applications, and other resources on a remote server.
The most obvious advantage of cloud hosting is that you can access your data from any Internet-enabled device. Other benefits include:
Project teams can collaborate in real-time using the same files and computer applications;
Cloud storage tends to be cheaper than buying several high-end hard drives;
And if your computer or hard drive gets destroyed or stolen, you will still have access to the data you saved on the cloud.
