When a new year begins, you reflect on the past one and plan for the one ahead. So naturally, it’s the best time to talk with our CEO Jiri Horyna about eMan’s plans for 2019.
New innovations team, a number of awards, over a hundred people in the eMan family, and opening our first office abroad... 2018 was quite a ride for eMan. Let’s have a look at what happened over the past year.
First, let’s take a look at a technology which was developed in the Czech Republic. Introduced to the world fifteen years ago, it uses radio frequency for communication. How does it work exactly and what are its pros and cons? How much does it all cost and what is its best use? And do you know what IQRF Alliance is?
Recently, you may have been hearing words like IoT, narrowband, Sigfox, IQRF, or LoRaWAN. What does all that mean? Well, it means that the time for devices that are usually quite small, connected to the internet, and can work on their own without the need of any interference of a third party, has come. (They’ve been here for a few years now...) These properties are summarized by an acronym LPWAN (low-power wide-area network).
The first hackathon, that eMan organized together with Qest, is over. Why did we go for it and what was the expected result? What new technologies were used by the participants and what challenges did they face? And, last but not least, what’s interesting about the hackathon trophy?
Twenty years ago, the first part of the international ISS station was dispatched into orbit. It was a tremendous success at that time. At eMan we share the enthusiasm for the developments that push human boundaries further and further. That is why we are cooperating with Honeywell Aerospace and are always hungry for more interesting projects.
Jan is our project team lead, and because there are more and more projects coming, he is looking for new members of the eMan team. What are the seven basic skills of a good PM? And why is working at eMan intriguing?
On September 25th, eMan presented its services at a professional fair in the USA for the first time ever, in a conference on automotive displays in Livonia (Michigan). The conference is pretty technical and has a strong focus on hardware solutions, but it provided us the opportunity to connect with experts and decision makers from great companies working in the infotainment field.
The user enters her smart car. Her favorite playlist starts playing, a message is sent to her family, a notification of low fuel pops up with a suggested gas station that has the lowest prices and is along the way. This isn’t Sci-Fi, this is an everyday reality. What technologies make this possible and why is infotainment the most important part?
Artificial intelligence has almost unlimited potential and it’s being used more every day. That’s why it’s important to get to know it. We’ll show you how to train AI using a convolutional neural network so it can recognize an eMan duck in a mobile app. Let’s get down to business!
