My Beat: Carl Engström | Labs

Meet some of our busy engineers, product managers and technical team members – who are working from home at the moment, but still have plenty of big projects in the pipeline. Carl Engström (known to everyone as “Eng”) is a Staff Engineer in our Gothenburg office. But right now, he’s staying home and keeping busy with the launch of a much-anticipated new feature…    I’m lucky with my usual morning routine — I can walk to the office in 20…

A Different Twist to Single-Wire Data Transmission

Single-wire data transmission is useful when operating a multitude of disperse components if high speed isn’t a requirement, but there’s a need for flexibility. The approach reduces the number of conductors in the cabling by shrinking size and cost. It can also improve system reliability. Dialog Semiconductor’s GreenPAK is a lower-power, NVM-programmable FPGA that’s used in this article to implement serial-to-parallel converters using a single-wire line. Main Idea Behind the Method Let’s start with the classic integrating RC element (Fig.…

Inside Uber ATG’s Data Mining Operation: Identifying Real Road Scenarios at Scale for Machine Learning

How did the pedestrian cross the road? Contrary to popular belief, sometimes the answer isn’t as simple as “to get to the other side.” To bring safe, reliable self-driving vehicles (SDVs) to the streets at Uber Advanced Technologies Group (ATG), our machine learning teams must fully master this scenario by predicting a number of possible real world outcomes related to a pedestrian’s decision to cross the road. To understand how this scenario might play out, we need to measure a…

Building Supply Chain Resilience for the Future

During the first few weeks of the coronavirus pandemic, when software engineers and other white-collar professionals were singing the praises of Zoom and thriving in a work-from-home environment, many mechanical engineers found themselves suddenly unable to easily access their designs. Software engineers and much of the business world (sales, marketing, accounting, human resources, etc.) have long used cloud-based productivity tools, but most hardware designers were still using installed on-site software for product development. The government shutdown of non-essential businesses around…

Today’s atmospheric carbon dioxide levels greater than 23 million-year record — ScienceDaily

A common message in use to convey the seriousness of climate change to the public is: “Carbon dioxide levels are higher today than they have been for the past one million years!” This new study by Brian Schubert (University of Louisiana at Lafayette) and coauthors Ying Cui and A. Hope Jahren used a novel method to conclude that today’s carbon dioxide (CO2) levels are actually higher than they have been for the past 23 million years. The team used the…

New sunspots potentially herald increased solar activity — ScienceDaily

On May 29, 2020, a family of sunspots — dark spots that freckle the face of the Sun, representing areas of complex magnetic fields — sported the biggest solar flare since October 2017. Although the sunspots are not yet visible (they will soon rotate into view over the left limb of the Sun), NASA spacecraft spotted the flares high above them. The flares were too weak to pass the threshold at which NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center (which is the…

Guide to Choosing Software for Your Manufacturing Business

You run your manufacturing plant and you need to have software that is reliable and meets all your manufacturing needs. Regardless of the size of your business or type of industry, production software takes your business to the next level. Let’s take a closer look at the concept of software production and then examine the aspects that should be considered when looking for the right software. What is Production Software? Production software is a software solution that allows you to…
