The impacts of automation technologies are already being felt throughout the economy. The worldwide number of industrial robots has increased rapidly over the past few years. The falling prices of robots, which can operate all day without interruption, make them cost-competitive with human workers. In the service sector, computer algorithms can execute stock trades in a fraction of a second, much faster than any human. As these technologies become cheaper, more capable, and more widespread, they will find even more applications in an economy.
From getting familiar with open source software to developing apps, industry professionals are urging embedded engineers to get out of their comfort zone and acquire new skills to stay relevant.
Back in the early days of embedded in the 1980s, the guy (and it was mostly guys then) who designed the mixed signal circuits, the guy who connected the microcontroller, the guy who wrote a bunch of low-level assembly code, and the guy who got the prototype out the door — well, it was all the same guy.
“90% of the world’s data was generated in the last few years.”
Due to the advent of new technologies, devices, and communication means like social networking sites, the amount of data produced by mankind is growing rapidly every year. The amount of data produced by us from the beginning of time till 2003 was 5 billion gigabytes. If you pile up the data in the form of disks it may fill an entire football field. The same amount was created in every two days in 2011, and in every ten minutes in 2013. This rate is still growing enormously. Though all this information produced is meaningful and can be useful when processed, it is being neglected.
There is undoubtedly a euphoric feeling whenever the term embedded systems and embedded system engineers are mentioned. In fact, embedded is a standalone domain which is slated to reap maximum benefits from modern smart technology. At this juncture, it is worth understanding that embedded systems form the micro-level hardware and software architectures of almost all technically-driven innovations.
With rapid penetration of smart technology, embedded systems (embedded engineering) has become the buzzword. However, domain experts (engineers specializing in embedded systems) still feel that fresh engineers and engineering students require awareness about the all-pervasive embedded sector in India. In a bid to offer clarity to budding embedded engineers in India regarding the key scenario of embedded systems in 2018, we obtained valuable insights from specialists
BE, B.tech, ME, M.tech, Diploma final year is the most significant part of student’s academic life, as this is the last year in which they have to give their best effort in order to grab a lucrative career ahead. In their final year, B tech students are supposed to prepare a project that showcases their knowledge, which they have acquired over the duration of the whole course. The students have to prepare the project based on both their theoretical and practical knowledge. Due to this, several companies consider the final year project made by the students as a benchmark at the time of placement. Thus, students also do not wish to leave any stone unturned while preparing their project and try to give their best shot.
