Wi-Fi Aware Raises Beacon Challenge Steven Keeping
Until now, Bluetooth® Smart has largely had a free run as the preferred communication technology for beacons – compact wireless proximity sensors that transmit a short-range radio signal advertising their position which can be picked up by compatible smartphones.

Smart Cars Will Increase the Life Expectancy of Texters Arden Henderson
So, no doubt you've heard of the oncoming wave of self-driving driverless smart cars. Major manufacturers are already incorporating self-driving features into regular cars while others are starting off with automobiles designed up from the ground to be driverless.

Back to the Future Day Grant Imahara
THE DAY HAS ARRIVED. October 21, 2015, the “future date” Doc Brown brought Marty and Jennifer to in Back to the Future part II. But instead of the bleak, dystopian future made popular by films like Blade Runner and The Terminator, Robert Zemeckis and his team showed us a brightly colored, sunny Hill Valley (albeit with the occasional scheduled rain shower). A seemingly prophetic future filled with endless movie sequels presented in 3D, and the long-cursed Cubs finally winning a World Series. But what other Back to the Future predictions have seemingly come true? We may not have flying cars, but we DO have…

The Assimilation of Self-driving Cars, One Feature at a Time Lynnette Reese
How many Tesla owners were on highways the next day, trying out their new Auto Lane Change feature? Flick the turn signal and the car will change lanes autonomously. The lane change feature takes advantage of the fact that lanes have line markings. Cameras are used to track the lines, and if the lines are missing or faint, it can confuse any good self-driving car, so you can count on highway lines to be as important as potholes in the future. The model S and X can now parallel park, too.

STEM Scouts: Boy Scouts of America’s New STEM Initiative (That’s for Girls Too!) Mike Parks
Science. Technology. Engineering. Mathematics. The STEM Movement, along with the Maker Movement, have been transformative forces in our modern society. Both have rekindled a spirit of “can do” optimism and excitement for exploring the unknown that has lain dormant for many of us. The Maker Movement has retaught us that getting your hands dirty and having a do-it-yourself mentality is not just pragmatic or thrifty, it is also just plain fun.

Bikeshedding: The Ethics behind the Driverless Car Rudy Ramos
How would you feel about driving down the highway at 65mph when suddenly you realize that the car that just passed you did not have a driver! No driver, only passengers – a group of seniors running late to their next Bingo game! How accepting would you be to the idea of sharing the highways with throngs of “driverless” cars? And what would be some of the “what ifs” or “ethical issues” you would have with this scenario?

Home Automation Adventures Part III: Common Sense Things To Reduce The Home Automation Attack Surface Arden Henderson
In this blog, we'll cover simple common sense best practice things that Bob and Alice can do to improve defenses and reduce risk. By the way, these are common sense best practices for all aspects of personal computing, cell phones, web, and internet.

Timeline of Driverless Cars Grant Imahara
Human ingenuity in automotive engineering is about to take a huge turn. From the time Henry Ford helped make the “Horseless Carriage” an affordable part of everyday people’s lives, we’ve come to the point where we’re about to arrive at the next quantum leap in personal transportation.

Worried About Artificial Intelligence? You Should Be- But Not The Way You Probably Think Warren Miller
How many times have you seen on the big screen the threat that artificial intelligence (AI) will wipe out or enslave humankind? It’s a lot, right? Should we really be worried about this with so many other disaster scenarios greeting us every day in the news- climate change, earthquakes, tsunamis, plagues, zombies and sharknadoes? Ok, maybe zombies and sharknadoes shouldn’t be included in a list of newsworthy worries, but maybe they do belong on a list that includes AI.

Rock You Like a Hurricane: Why Diversity Matters in STEM Mike Parks
Have you ever noticed that there isn't one fixed hurricane prediction model? Those “cones of error” represent that wide array of assumed courses from many different hurricane models. Each of those models comes with different parameters, algorithms, and input data that leads to different outputs. No model is ever 100% right, but when you discount outliers and find trends among the remaining model, you can get a good enough idea to start making some rational decisions.
