AUGI

Shared publicly  - 
 
It is the time of year when we once again poll our membership about salaries, benefits, job security and more! The survey will run until August 6th.
https://www.augi.com/surveys/current-survey/current-survey

Feel free to download the survey results from previous years and see the whole package, but until then, here is a little snapshot of business activity in 2015.
https://www.augi.com/surveys/salary-surveys/previous-salary-surveys

We have the expected questions about pay and benefits, but, there is also a chance to share information on what markets your company serves or what specialty services they offer. Do you use the cloud? Why or why not? Have you increased or decreased outsourcing, opened or closed offices, hired or fired staff this year?

So that this year’s review can provide measurable and meaningful data, it is important that all AUGI members volunteer a couple of minutes of their time and a little bit of information (which is not in any way connected to your user account and will only be reported in broad groups), so that everyone can get an idea of the current state of their industry.

Even if you’ve been recently laid off, please take the time to participate (with your most recent job details), and indicate your change in employment because we’d like to know that, too.

If you have any questions, please first refer to the FAQ. https://www.augi.com/surveys/salary-surveys/salary-survey-questions-and-faqs

Watch for the results in the September Issue of AUGIWorld magazine.

Thank you,

Melanie Perry
Salary Survey Manager

Can Cars Solve a Housing Crisis ...

Self-driving cars are a promising new technology. Advocates believe it is a technology that could help with sustainable issues and car-related fatalities. And San Francisco thinks it just may solve their housing crisis!

Read about it at Gizmodo:

For a minute, try to forget the hype you hear about self-driving cars and think about the single-occupant, human-driven vehicle like this: A very inefficient way to use expensive city land. Not only do extra-wide roads take up a lot of space, there’s far too much property allocated to parking—about 20 percent of the land in many US downtowns are surface parking lots. Autonomous vehicles will require less than a third of the land that cars do now,...

Gumming Up The 3D Printing World ...

Sure 3D resin prints are great, but you can't eat them. Wait, can you? No, we're pretty sure you can't. Well, one printer prints 3D edibles! How delicious does that tech sound?

Read all about it at Geek:
Yes, it’s another 3D printer… but cheer up Charlie, this one doesn’t print using a spool of plastic. It uses delicious magical goop to make custom gummy treats! You can thank the fine [...]

A Kid's Robot Kit That Fits Like A Glove ...

Some companies sell robot kits that can be built by kids. And that is great. But Ziro is the only robot kit that lets kids build and control the action ... with a glove!

Motion controls often leave a lot to be desired. They can be unreliable, tiring, and not nearly as intuitive as they sound. But even at their most awkward, they confer a kind of regal power....

A Space to Do Your Best Work ...

Not all coworking spaces are designed equally. Some are economic and sparse. Some are elaborate. And some are designed by award-winning architects

Two Stories, 1k+ People, and You Can Drive Through It ...

This concept for a bus is more than just large. It stands two stories tall, can carry more than one thousand people at once, and you can drive right through it. In fact, it just may straddle the future of China's public transportation.

Read all about this monster of transit at The Atlantic CityLab:

First dreamed up in 1969, the bus may help Chinese cities ease traffic and curb air pollution.
