76 SMT007 MAGAZINE I NOVEMBER 2018 UVA Faculty Work to Advance the Internet of Things E The "Internet of Things" needs energy-effi- cient hardware, some of which may come from research developed at the University of Virginia School of Engineering and Applied Science's affiliate of the MIST Center. Spinning the Light: The World's Smallest Optical Gyroscope E Gyroscopes are devices that help vehicles, drones, and wearable and handheld electronic devices know their orientation in three-dimen- sional space. They are commonplace in just about every bit of technology we rely on every day. Robotic Process Automation Market Worth $3B by 2025 E The global market is estimated to expand at a CAGR of 31.1% during the forecast period. Different organizations in different sectors are increasingly challenged by the growing market competition due to shift in technology and changing consumer preferences. Global Automotive 3D Printing Market to Reach $2.7B by 2023 E As per the report, the global automotive 3D printing market was valued at $930.2 million in 2017 and is projected to reach $2.73 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 19.7% from 2017 to 2023. Ultra-Light Gloves Let Users 'Touch' Virtual Objects E Scientists from EPFL and ETH Zurich have developed an ultra-light glove—weighing less than 8 grams per finger—that enables users to feel and manipulate virtual objects. Their system provides extremely realistic haptic feedback and could run on a battery, allowing for unparalleled freedom of movement. Semiconductor Sales Up 15% YoY in August E The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) has reported that worldwide sales of semicon- ductors reached $40.16 billion for the month of August 2018, an increase of 14.9% compared to August last year.
