Gartner forecasts worldwide IT spending will grow 5.5% in 2023.
The rise of fuel-efficient vehicles is having a positive impact on the environment and people’s pocketbooks, long-term. But one challenge it presents is highways are largely funded by federal and state gas taxes. The good news is technology can help. Consider the example of the state of Oklahoma, which has announced a six-month, pay-per-mile pilot program called Fair Miles Oklahoma using technology from Emovis. The state legislature mandated the study in 2021 as direction for potential future policy changes. Launching in July, drivers who volunteer to be part of the pilot through the Fair Miles Oklahoma website will have several…

The USDA estimates that a 31% rate of food loss at the retail and consumer levels equals about 133 billion pounds of food, valued at $161 billion.

The statistics can be scary. 4,764 workers died on the job in 2020. Employees in construction and extraction occupations accounted for 20% of those deaths. While technology has continued to advance to address this very issue, many fatalities and injuries are still occurring. University of Houston computer scientists have set out to find a solution by developing ViPER+, which accurately tracks workers’ location using ultra-wideband technology. The ViPER+ system surmounts challenges of other ultra-wideband based realtime safety monitoring systems primarily because it overcomes non-line of sight situations. These are instances in which trucks, construction loaders, and other equipment block the…
