CENTENNIAL, Colo., October 23, 2020 /3BL Media/ - Disabled IndyCar race car driver Sam Schmidt has returned to auto racing with the help of Arrow Electronics, besting more than a dozen able-bodied drivers in a recent two-day competition. Schmidt hadn’t raced competitively since crashing during a 200-mph practice lap 20 years ago, an accident that left him paralyzed from the shoulders down.
He returned to competitive racing in Arrow’s newest Semi-Autonomous Motorcar (SAM), a 2020 Chevrolet Corvette modified with electronic head and voice controls.
We need to rethink how we prepare people for the workforce.

New technologies are transforming dull and repetitive jobs into those requiring analytic and problem-solving skills. Manufacturing is on the front lines of this change – electricians are becoming digital electricians, material handlers are becoming robotically enabled, and assembly line workers are becoming robotics programmers.

Technology and the sports industry are becoming intertwined like never before! The definition of “fan engagement” has changed over the past decade due to cultural shifts and technology innovations. Sports business executives can capitalize on the changing sports landscape by using ON Semiconductor applications.

Every summer, kids who attend Qualcomm Thinkabit Lab STEM summer camps explore IoT, robotics, and coding, creating their own inventions to express themselves and solve problems for their communities. While distanced learning made this year’s camps a little different, it also enabled more students than ever to participate.
Delivery fleet operators face regulatory pressure in California and other states to buy electric vehicles, but a surge in package deliveries thanks to coronavirus lockdowns has major firms itching to switch to electric right now.
And they want far more than just battery-powered versions of diesel- or gas-guzzling trucks and vans.

There is no doubt that advanced communication networks are changing how we interact with data, technology and one another. New levels of connectivity are giving us the ability to create, share and analyze information, creating layers of input and insight that deepen our experiences, making them richer, more tangible and more valuable than ever before. This has never been more apparent than during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is driving entire communities to move their lives online, from classes to doctor appointments to the 9-5 workday.
CENTENNIAL, Colo., September 2, 2020 /3BL Media/ – Arrow Electronics debuted the newest version of its Semi-Autonomous Motorcar (SAM) at a private racetrack in Indiana, where racecar driver Sam Schmidt took several high-speed laps in the modified 2020 Chevrolet Corvette.
What will the laboratory of the future look like, especially when dealing with post-COVID realities?
Given the current situation of working during a pandemic, we really do need to be innovative in how we design labs today for use tomorrow.
What’s becoming clear is that robotics and automation will increasingly color the way we think about labs. For example, if a lab is pushed to increase from 5,000 to 100,000 COVID tests per day, one would be hard-pressed to solve the problem without some significant level of robotics and automation.
