Helping Children With Autism Tap Into Their Imaginations
Taking its cue from technologies on display at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show, this issue explores new applications designed to benefit humanity and even save lives. One application involves augmented reality: A researcher has designed an AR system that she hopes will encourage children with autism to participate in imaginative play, an activity that could teach the children social and emotional skills and build self-esteem.
Conference on Time Sensitive Networking and Applications (TSNA) 28-29 April at the Hilton Santa Clara, CA
This conference will give attendees a deep technical look into the development of current and emerging standards and technologies associated with deterministic networking. Ethernet continues to expand its range, functionality and applications with the evolution of the IEEE standard Audio Video Bridging (AVB) into Time Sensitive Networking (TSN). The new capabilities of TSN are beneficial across multiple markets where highly reliable and precise synchronized networking applications exist. Through TSN technical primers, current market trend tracks and market specific use case studies for Industrial, Professional Audio/Video, Consumer Electronics and Automotive, attendees will gain unique insight from regarding future technology that is coming to standard Ethernet.
