Live from the ITA (Illinois Technology Assn.) IoT (Internet of Things) Summit in Chicago, Ill., Peggy discusses the importance of 2G in M2M/IoT and the fact that 2G still has self-life, but it is set to expire when carriers retire towers. She says the carrier T-Mobile really wants to help, launching 2G M2M, which is a modified version of its 2G network that will continue to operate through 2020.
Peggy says hands-free systems are not actually solving the distracted driving problem, but are safer than the alternative. She says information systems add to our cognitive workload, and potentially unsafe mental distractions can last up to 27 seconds after dialing or changing the radio station in the worst performing systems.
Peggy says there are some hackers on our side, trying to do some positive things and ‘ethical hacking.’ On the automotive side, she asks, however: How can people guarantee these white-hat hackers are ethical when they have to think like the bad guys?
Peggy explains how the FAA has created regulations for drones, saying she leans toward education and outreach instead of legislation, but she also loves and thinks drones are amazing and they can be used in a lot of industries. Peggy says with great technology comes great responsibility.
Peggy says she has seen interesting trends tracking the CW 100, especially considering all the M&A (merger and acquisition) activity.

The exciting opportunity is all of a sudden we can enable new services, he continues.
Live from Renesas DevCon, Amrit Vivekanand, vice president automotive, Renesas Electronics America, says it is a battle of ecosystems out there right now, and Renesas, for example, is showing commitment to the space. He says technology is there for most aspects of autonomous driving, and the challenge is integrating all the pieces together.
Peggy talks about how data is becoming more important in todays connected world as evidence by a new cabinet position: DJ Patil being named as the U.S. government's chief data scientist.

Peggy says each football player has an RFID (radio-frequency identification) sensor embedded in his shoulder pad, providing data such as speed and direction, with the objective of gathering statistics to make informed decisions. She continues, saying how the NFL can use IoT (Internet of Things) to prevent incidents like last year’s deflate-gate.
Peggy says the IoT (Internet of Things) will change how enterprises will conduct business, saying announcements related to IoT in the enterprise have made a big showing at this year’s CTIA Super Mobility Week 2015. Based on her experience at the show, everyone is getting excited about what the IoT can do for the enterprise-side and industrial. She likes the aggressive moves in the space, and highlights specific announcements.
How will wearable devices such as smartwatches impact distracted driving? Peggy answers, giving an example of a man in Canada who received a ticket while using an Apple Watch while driving and the motorist argued the watch wasn’t a handheld device. Peggy addresses the differences between regular watches and smartwatches and suggests where law enforcement should draw the line. She says the onus is on each of us to focus on the task of driving.
My car does what? Peggy kicks off the month discussing a campaign that focuses on safety features in vehicles. She says one of the symptoms of society in general is a lack of awareness of road safety. There is no question safety is a key component, she explains, but at the same time it is disheartening to think consumers aren’t fully aware or taking advantage of what vehicles have to offer.
Peggy starts the show by discussing Google’s Alphabet. Why is Google doing all of this? She says Larry Page suggests Google is not a conventional company, and Peggy agrees, quoting Page from an original founders’ letter 11 years ago.
