@Eldredge, we'lll have to keep you posted on the kitty Kat front. Surely we have some designers in this community who want to jump on this problem?

"this trend is an interesting one to follow. The average home user/car driver/ etc. can hardly imagine what's coming down the pike. It's coming fast"

Hailey, technologies are developing and phase out in fast mode. So implementation has alos cope up with this speed.

@hailey: That would mean a sensor to AI integration is cars. That is already happening (cite: Google car) but it does not have the logistics or the equipment to tend to any post event criteria. The world is going digital, so why not cars? Moreover there has to be a sensor integrated road system.

Home Control to Home Automation

I think this is a good way to begin developing for home automation. With the IOT around the corner, coupling independent developers with home automation devices is going to be a good business, but only under the said standardizations set for the IOT.

@Himanshugupta, pre- and post- incident smarts in a car can be useful. It would be great to avoid accidents all togethr but knowing what happened can really help too.

@SP, i could totally get behind having a robot to help care for my beloved cat. I could be in charge of ear scratching, petting, and providing a warm lap--and the robot could take care of fresh water and cat box cleaning. :)

@Prabhakar, actually, this challenge was a "smarter life" challenge which is a bit broader than the home. all these areas are ripe for innovation. The next challenge that Newark is doing is around wireless. It'll be interesting to see what comes out of that.

@Jacob, this trend is an interesting one to follow. The average home user/car driver/ etc. can hardly imagine what's coming down the pike. It's coming fast. In talking to Newark Element 14, for example, we discussed that it is now possible to create a washing machine that senses when, for example, a red sock has gotten in with the white laundry--and can sound the alarm. Pretty cool stuff.

I also liked the idea of car 'blackbox'. We can have an integrated solution for the car to improve both the performance and safety. Today, we never track the reasons of a car accident but sometime accident due to technical reasons can be averted due to the presence of smart devices.
