The study released by CTIA, conducted for the lobby by the #BrattleGroup, says that licensed #spectrum contributed $400 billion to the economy in 2013. Some of that money came directly from consumers who paid for wireless services, while more came from indirect spending related to the wireless industry — like the construction of cell phone towers. #morespectrum

Your commute could be already benefiting from "smart traffic lights." The system uses a series of wires embedded in city streets that tell the signals how much traffic is moving through the intersection. When traffic is heavier, the green lights stay on longer. Less traffic means shorter greens. During peak traffic periods, nearby intersections sync their lights to allow long stretches of green. When there are fewer cars on the road, those intersections revert to their own cycles.

Each time 81-year-old Bill Dworsky or his 80-year-old wife Dorothy opens the refrigerator, closes the bathroom door or lifts the lid on a pill container, tiny sensors in their San Francisco home make notes on a digital logbook, which their son monitors daily on his smartphone.

+WIRED  reports on the +Daimler Trucks Adelaide #FreightlinerInspiration that is driving around Nevada to test its limited autonomous abilities. In 2012 in the US, 330,000 large trucks were involved in crashes that killed nearly 4,000 people, most of them in passenger cars. About 90 percent of those were caused by driver error. #selfdriving #autonomoustrucks  
If the truck encounters a situation it can’t confidently handle, like heavy snow, it will alert the human that it’s time for him to take over via beeps and icons.
