Current Tech Trends: Attack of the Drones!

I recently purchased a set of Star Wars drones and it got me thinking about all the practical and impractical uses for IoT devices. Drone technology is constantly evolving as new innovation and big investment is bringing more advanced drones to the market every few months.

The complexity of these perceived simplistic products is amazing. You have physical components that start with lightweight composite materials to radar/positioning, sensors and circuit boards and finally software or the brain that controls all aspects of the drone.

What could go wrong? Well… everything could. For industrial use and military grade applications, the results can be disastrous. Quality becomes the critical component of the production lifecycle. The obvious first step is to make sure all components work according to requirement specifications. Do all the components behave correctly?

Internet of Things: Expanding into Medical Device Digital Enterprise

What is the definition of the Internet of Things (IoT)?

Gartner defines IoT as the following: “The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects that contain embedded technology to communicate and sense or interact with the internal states or the external environment.”

If a medical device firm is implementing an IoT device, implied in the definition is a set of new product features related to the company ideation, realization and utilization systems. We will begin with a delineation some of the new capabilities and potential features IoT promises to bring to our devices.

This list will be fairly short to illustrate the difficulty in implementing this kind of technology, and the need for a digital model to support the effort not only in creation of the product, but just as critical, in management of the device after deployment.

Why Software is Key Differentiator for Medical Devices

Software is an important part of emerging medical devices, but there is a growing list of potential risks that manufacturers must address.

Software has become the differentiator for medical devices, with customers facing audit findings, product recalls, delays in product release, and other key challenges. During the webinar, you’ll hear from Laurence Sampson, Siemens PLM Industry Expert for Medical Devices and Life Sciences, as he explains how unified ALM helps your organization address software challenges.
