2015 Workgroup Topic Proposals

AoT (Audio of Things)

Posted on

The IoT buzzword and concept has a lot of push behind it. The topic that I think would be interesting is does the Audio of Things in a given place want / need to use the internet. The companies with server side services are pushing it but that mean it is the “right” answer. Because of implied power (Radios) and security (information on shared server) can I keep the information local and still accomplish all of my home automation goals and get a benefit?

2013 Workgroup Topic Proposals

Driveless Car

Posted on

Working on the assumption that you have a personal car (not a train or public transport) and it is completely safe and goes point to point smoothly. What does it look and sound like on the inside?

Steering wheel? Chairs point inward / rotating? Speaker placement change? Microphone arrays? Kinect-like IR?
