Cities grow smarter through innovative semiconductor technologies

Cities grow smarter through innovative semiconductor technologies
It happens every minute, somewhere, somehow. An accident occurs on the freeway. Traffic backs up for long distances. Ambulances and police cars thread slowly through lines of stopped cars. Cars wait and drivers’ frustrations grow. But what if there were cameras on the street lights poles along the freeway, or drones hovering overhead, that could spot accidents the moment they happen and relay that information immediately to emergency services and traffic control centers?

Smartening up the grid: challenges for testing technologies

Smartening up the grid: challenges for testing technologies
As the world makes the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy, the impact on existing energy infrastructures is significant. New developments such as renewable energy power stations, energy-positive buildings and infrastructures mean that electricity no longer has a unidirectional flow from power stations to consumers. In addition, as local energy generation and private storage facilities increase, there are greater demands on the grid along with new challenges. Anoop Gangadharan, Product Marketing Manager, Yokogawa Europe, explains.
