60 PCB007 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 Virgin- ia 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 electron- ic devices know their orientation in three-di- mensional 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 mar- ket 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. Semiconductor Sales Up 15% YoY in August E The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) has reported that worldwide sales of semiconductors reached $40.16 billion for the month of August 2018, an increase of 14.9% compared to August last year. Lockheed Martin Provides Energy Resiliency Solutions to Support U.S. Army Operations E Lockheed Martin is providing energy storage capabilities to support the U.S. Army's efforts to enhance its base resiliency, preserving pow- er in the event of natural disasters, cyber-at- tacks or shutdowns. 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 sys- tem provides extremely realistic haptic feed- back and could run on a battery, allowing for unparalleled freedom of movement. NASA Looking to Tiny Technology for Big Payoffs E NASA is advancing technology that could use large amounts of nanoscale materials to launch lighter rockets and spacecraft than ever before. The super-lightweight aerospace com- posites (SAC) project seeks to scale up the manufacturing and use of high-strength car- bon nanotube composite materials. The Race to Build a Quantum Computer E Tasks that take billions of years done in just minutes. That's the quantum revolution com- ing to computing and it's set to transform our whole society.
