Tele2 IoT enables electric vehicle wireless charging on the move through a new agreement with Elonroad
Tele2 IoT is taking a step forward in the field of electric vehicle charging infrastructure and towards a sustainable automotive industry by providing connection of equipment to Elonroad, which has developed technology for electric roads where electric vehicles can be charged while driving.

Elonroad, a startup based in Lund, Sweden, has developed a solution in the form of an electric road where all kinds of electric vehicles - cars, buses, and trucks - regardless of manufacturer, can be charged while they are driving. With more and more electric vehicles on the roads, charging while driving will reduce bottlenecks and also enable smaller batteries.

The solution consists of a rail that is integrated with the road by being installed directly on the asphalt. The rails can withstand all weather conditions and short rail segments are driven individually, which provides a high level of safety.

Our smart electric road needs to be connected to the internet in order for us to be able to control, optimize, and collect payments from users. The agreement with Tele2 is business-critical for us on our continued journey, says Karin Ebbinghaus, CEO of Elonroad.

Through 2CONTROL, Tele2 IoT's platform for managing connected devices, Elonroad will be able to monitor and manage its IoT subscriptions. Elonroad's service includes an integrated control system for individual measurement of each vehicle's usage and can also analyze road conditions, such as where there are potential hazards, which can then be communicated to prevent accidents.

Elonroad is an exciting startup with a solution that will be critical to achieve the goal of a fossil-independent vehicle fleet by 2030. By making 5G available, we secure Elonroad's digital solution and ensure a reliable connection. As soon as 5G becomes available where Elonroad builds its electric roads, larger amounts of data that require low latency can e handled, such as the transfer of data from cameras. We are very proud to be a part of Elonroad's continued journey.

Think Silicon and Ambiq Empower Ultra-Low Power IoT Devices with Smartphone-Class, 3D-Like Graphics

Think Silicon, Ambiq | May 20, 2021

Think Silicon S.A., a leading provider of ultra-low-power GPU IP for embedded systems, and Ambiq, an industry leader in ultra-low-power microcontrollers (MCU), System-on-Chips (SoC), and Real-time Clocks (RTC), revealed today that they are collaborating to offer high-end graphics capabilities to daily wearable device designers. Ambiq's newest Apollo4 SoC family also includes Think Silicon's NEMA® pico GPU and NEMA dc display controller IP to provide high-performance, low-power graphics. The Apollo4 SoC family is based on Ambiq's proprietary Subthreshold Power-Optimized Technology (SPOT) platform and is the company's fourth-generation processor solution. The Apollo4's complete hardware and software solution allows future battery-powered endpoint devices to reach greater levels of intelligence while preserving battery life. Smartwatches, children's watches, fitness bands, animal trackers, far-field voice remotes, predictive health and maintenance devices, smart security devices, and smart home devices all use the Apollo4. The NEMA|pico XL/XS Series is an SoC-optimized GPU with display controller IP in a feature-complete design aimed at mid-to-high-end wearables and embedded IoT display devices with the most rigorous power, efficiency, and area requirements. The scalable multi-core GPU IP platform will run on bare metal / RTOS, requiring very little on-chip memory and system resources, making it suitable for memory- and power-constrained SoCs. The NEMA|pico XL/XS Series is designed to save energy by reducing memory and display access while preserving battery life, graphics quality, and performance. “The addition of the NEMA GPU and display controller expands the Apollo family of SoCs' application space. It enables our customers to create ultra-low-power wearables with industry-leading graphics performance, resulting in feature-rich and uncompromising user interfaces,” said Dan Cermak, Ambiq's Vice President of Architecture and Product Planning. “The Think Silicon IP's simplicity offers our customers a variety of display options, allowing them to support multiple end-product tiers with minimal modifications to the underlying design.” “By combining the NEMA Pico GPU IP with the Apollo4 SoC family, we will push the limits of what is feasible in high-performance, low-power graphics,” said Ulli Mueller, Think Silicon's Director of IP Licensing and Marketing. “Together, our solution delivers stunning graphics in a power/performance envelope with battery life measured in weeks rather than days, all while maintaining the smallest silicon footprint possible.” About Ambiq Ambiq was founded in 2010 to create a cleaner, greener, and safer environment by allowing mobile and portable devices to reduce or remove their overall power usage from batteries.

Why IoT is a key ingredient in Thailand’s digitalization drive

Tech Wire Asia | August 24, 2020

An Internet of Things (IoT) system consists of sensors and devices which “talk” to and connect with cloud solutions. Once the data gets to the cloud, IoT software processes and actions it to benefit not only businesses and countless industries — from agriculture to retail and medicine — but also end consumers. Globally, it’s estimated that there will be more than 75 billion IoT devices installed by 2025, five times as many as in 2015. A McKinsey & Company report notes that the percentage of businesses using IoT grew from 13% to 25% between 2014 and 2019. So, it’s no surprise that Thailand is putting a great onus on the development of its IoT infrastructure, and several of the government’s ‘Thailand 4.0’ initiatives – such as Smart City and Industry 4.0 – are focused on boosting the adoption of IoT. In their pacey pursuit of digital transformation, we look at where IoT comes in, and what infrastructural and developmental issues Thailand could face.
