Awesome Top Trends in Technology Engineering for 2021

0 Comments

engineering & technology

The era of electronics began with the invention of the transistor in 1947 and silicon-based semiconductor technology. Seven decades later, we are surrounded by electronic devices and, as much as we try to deny it, we rely on them in our everyday lives. Technology has become an intrinsic part of life – deeply embedded in how governments, businesses, and people work and live.

Technology is evolving very fast. Steve Jobs taught people how to communicate at our fingertips. Also, robots learned how to communicate, and we will then get new ground for development and reflection. Now, let’s have a look at the latest technology trends that will influence and impact our lives in the coming future.

  • 5G Data Networks

A market researcher, Omdia, states in their new paper that this technology would play a key role in transforming the entire technology, media, and telecommunications (TMT) industry as a whole. 5G network promises to accelerate your network five times faster than the capabilities of 4G, which will allow users to download movies, songs, and files in just five seconds. It is a lightning-fast connection that will soon become an enterprise technology for data and speed analysis. 

People expect that with 5G, Internet of Things (IoT) applications and connected devices will reach high. A system called Amazon Go recently launched by Amazon uses IoT. This new network uses IoT and Machine Vision technologies that allow the customers to buy products without doing the manual checkout.

The 5G smartphone market across the globe is predicted to grow twofold in 2021, up from 29 million in 2019. This surge will be driven by declining device costs that will reach the $700-$800 range in the next two years, making them more affordable. The global 5G radio access market (RAN) will rise to $21bn in 2024.

  • Involvement of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Manufacturing

Artificial Intelligence has become a part of our daily lives. AI technology trends, including products like AlterEgo, smart wearable devices, and civilian robots like Sophia, are just a demonstration of how big AI technologies will be in 2021. Even U.S. startups including Osari, Kindred, and Vicarious are already using this technology for manufacturing. Every big company and organization is focusing on improving the customer experience and modernizing their actions by using AI.

artificial intelligence in manufacturing

AI in manufacturing will be a key trend as its values lie in reducing product defects, automating quality control, increasing capacity, and streamlining maintenance. Highly automated manufacturers are ideal candidates for sophisticated analysis as they are already well-instrumented with sensors and controllers. However, less automated manufacturers can also beneficially utilize robotics and AI by eliminating inefficient manual processes.

A global consulting firm, McKinsey, states that manufacturing industries have captured about only 20%-30% of the potential value of data and analytics to date – and most of that has occurred at a handful of industry-leading companies. By embarking on an AI journey, far more complicated and bigger amounts of information can be processed across manufacturing operations and across the supply chain – detecting inefficiencies, relationships, and predicting possible issues before they even emerge. The industries with AI in manufacturing will change the game.

  • Development of Aerospace Technologies

In today’s aerospace industry, manufacturers often feel bound to operate a certain way because it’s a tried-and-true, validated processor because the physics of aerospace dictates certain limitations on materials, systems, and designs. To achieve this, manufacturers are always innovating and focusing on significant technological developments on the horizon for aerospace. With the big steps done by a lot of private companies this year, it has given a new light to the future path of aerospace technology. 

aerospace innovations

By 2021, there will be a massive change as aerospace advancements are developing by big companies including Blue Origin and SpaceX. Private enterprises and the Government in China are doing good development in space, LinkSpace is one of them. It is big thanks to the success of these companies, humanity will be able to begin a more active space expansion.

The emerging aerospace technologies include zero-fuel aircraft, structural health monitoring, advanced space propulsion technologies, advanced materials, smart automation, and blockchain. Innovative technologies and manufacturing processes are being developed on a seemingly constant basis and small to medium-sized manufacturers are reaping the benefits of aerospace companies looking for niche suppliers to help expand their supply chain.

Conclusion

According to tech experts, there will be a significant and massive change in technology in 2021. This will be a game-changer in the technology field. With everything good that is being innovated right now, our future years will have a better perspective on technology to make all of our lives better.
