In the wake of industrial revolution, buzzing trends in the electrical engineering sector remain to be stable for the last several years. Not because the paths for innovation have stopped, subjects like Artificial Intelligence or cyber security among few others need at least another decade of experimentation to be understood completely. These technologies need more investigation and research for the world to understand their full potential. In the world full of applications, these technologies take different shapes in different sectors of the business ecosystem. The existing verticals are being constantly engineered and modified in order to find newer ways to use them, better areas to optimize them, so that there can be more expertise in the world to share.
It is however the inventions in electrical engineering sector that comprise the most advanced technologies of the world. Be it cloud computing or computer vision, 3D printing, drones or robotics, elements of electrical engineering have made them possible. Industry experts are majorly focusing on the most important trends in this sector that they think will have a far reaching
impact on the world. Something like smart factories can be a full-fledged reality with the use of these technologies.
Advanced communication network can be set up by the implementation of 5G. A kind of network that has the capability to eliminate all the delays, create a stable network between multiple devices and at the same time consume less energy. Reports have come from the University of California, Irvine where students have come up with a transmitter-receiver that can quadruple the normal communication standards for wireless 5G connections. With this invention, data centres all across the world can lay off a substantial quantity of fiver-optic cables which will be very beneficial for all the data farm operators. Additionally, they will be able to save on power, cooling and hardware.
After Augmented and Virtual Reality, now it is time for Mixed Reality (MR) to emerge. With 5G, it has been predicted to bring much advancement in this field. The hybrid element in MR integrates virtual objects into the real environment in a very eventful way. Mixed Reality is likely to change the way the world communicates right now. This technology will help industries detect major problems in machinery only by the application of MR. However, the primary line of difference between AR and MR is that AR uses a flat screen to project whereas MR is still based on Headsets.
With the increase of smart applications, there is a growing need to develop proper cyber security solutions. As the world becomes more advanced and industries get more and more dependent on technology, one of the pressing issues is that of security. Three years ago in 2017, US alone had experienced more than 100 cyber attacks on live systems all across the country that needed protection. Industry experts are of the opinion that Blockchain might be a possible answer for the cyber attacks as it takes a user through a secure information sharing process before exposing any kind of data.
