50 The PCB Magazine • February 2017 Seeing the Quantum Future…Literally Sydney physicists have demonstrated it is possible to overcome the most significant hurdle to building reliable quantum technologies, in a major technical achievement. The research is published in Nature Communications. Globalization and Cloud Computing Usher in New IoT Realms Leaders of the global internet of things market in 2015 included the likes of Google, Inc., Apple, Inc., Microsoft Corp., Amazon, Intel Corp, and Cisco Sys - tems. As seen, a lot of the key players in the global internet of things market are predominantly from consumer electronics or ICT fields, and a majority of the market leaders are headquartered in the U.S. Laying the Foundation for UAE's Advanced Communications Infrastructure Masdar Institute has launched two research centers aimed at accelerating development of the UAE's communications infrastructure and preparing the country for the next generation of wireless commu - nications networks, known as 5G wireless. Growing Need for Automation to Lead to Mass Deployment of Industrial Robots The global market for industrial robotics is extreme - ly fragmented in nature, states Transparency Market Research (TMR) in a research report. The competi- tion among the players is expected to intensify over the next couple of years as the degree of product differentiation is extremely low and the barrier to entry for new participants is also flexible. IoT, Automotive Electronics Driving FPCB Industry Growth Flexible Printed Circuit Boards Market report, pub- lished by Allied Market Research, forecasts that the global market is expected to garner $27 billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 10.4% from 2016– 2022. Additive Manufacturing: A New Twist for Stretchable Electronics? Electronic components that can be elongated or twisted—known as "stretchable" electronics— could soon be used to power electronic gadgets, the onboard systems of vehicles, medical devices and other products. Over 69 Million Automotive LiDAR Sensors Will Ship in 2026 Critical autonomous driving functions, including obstacle detection and simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), will drive the automotive in- dustry's adoption of LiDAR sensors. Share of In-Cell Solutions in Smartphone Display Market to Reach 29.6% in 2017 The latest resear ch on touch display solutions by WitsView, a division of TrendForce, finds that the share of In-Cell products in the global smartphone display market will expand to 29.6% by the end of 2017. A Remedy for Bad Altitude "Taking control over an airplane isn't as easy as fly - ing a drone; an attack is more likely going to be simulating malfunctions so a pilot loses trust in his or her aircraft," said Mike Worden, a Raytheon en- gineering fellow and the company's principal inves- tigator for cyber hardening projects. A Flexible, Stretchable, Self-Healing Ionic Conductor Scientists, including several from the University of California, Riverside, have developed a transparent, self-healing, highly stretchable conductive material that can be electrically activated to power artificial muscles and could be used to improve batteries, electronic devices, and robots.
