Unprecedented Achievements in Connected Systems: How 3 companies used DDS to achieve inspired results.

As cheesy as it may sound, it's the truth: our customers build things that are downright inspiring. They tackle the hard problems, seemingly preferring to run head on into a challenge as opposed to shying away from it. As a result, many of them have built systems and architectures that are saving lives, improving the quality of our experiences with technology, and pushing the boundaries of what we think is possible.

Reaching for the Stars

Listening this morning to an interview with science writer Brian Clegg, I got to thinking about how the smallest things can have the biggest impact. Clegg just published his latest book, The Quantum Age: How the Physics of the Very Small has Transformed Our Lives. In the interview, he noted that around 30% of the GDP for a developed country like the United States stems from inventions based on quantum physics, including lasers, microprocessors, and mobile phones.

The Future of Robotics

The future of robotics is distributed. Any complex robot is a distributed set of modules and systems, some autonomous, some semi-autonomous and some human controlled, all closely operating together to form a single cohesive system of interoperating parts. In telerobotics we seek to enable teleoperation of a robot and give the operator a human sense of being where the robot is being deployed, by providing video and forces of interactions back to the human operators.
