Diversification of the Pulp & Paper Industry

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: Q2 2020

Decades ago, graphic paper was a powerhouse, its global demand growth consistently outpacing GDP growth. Things have changed: The majority of inefficient paper mills have already been shut down, and others are now seeing a shift towards packaging and specialty products. In this report, we will explore new innovation needs and opportunties in the modern pulp and paper industry, from diversification into flexible paper packaging and nanocellulose products to progress on converting long-standing biomass waste sources like lignin.

Ultra-wideband radar sensors

Coverage Areas: Consumer IoT More...

Planned Publication Date: Q2 2020

Ultra-wideband (UWB) radar is a promising technology for the detection of humans and moving objects, through-wall imaging, and search and rescue applications due to its high-resolution and high-accuracy features. With the progressive development of miniaturized, energy-efficient, and low-cost radar sensors, the applications expand to personal electronics, IoT devices, health care products, and robotics. This report will outline the landscape of the technology, reveal the challenges that need to be overcome, and provide outlooks on the future roles of the UWB radar sensors.

Autonomous Vehicle Cost Model 2020

Coverage Areas: Autonomous Systems 2.0 More...

Planned Publication Date: Q3 2020

As the cost of sensors, processors, and batteries go down, the overall cost of an autonomous vehicle is starting to approach feasible levels for ride-hailing and logistics customers. While fleets operating businesses in those industries will almost immediately realize cost-effectiveness, through a cost modeling analysis, we'll explore when other industries and consumers will be able to afford this emerging technology.
