Stay at Home Orders Could Accelerate UAV and Autonomous Vehicles Adoption

The novel coronavirus has disrupted both the world’s economy and how we individually live and work. With so many people being asked to stay at home and limit social interaction to fight the spread of the disease, could one result be the accelerated introduction of autonomy?

Getting Started with Systems Engineering and Requirements Management (Part 2)

An SE or RM tool is an important part of a successful project; however, organizations often select a tool without a clear understanding of their SE process (or lack of one) and may have unreasonable expectations about what it can do. This scenario can also result in trying to shoehorn development to fit the tool, resulting in unnecessary work. Prior to choosing a tool, there are several aspects that need to be evaluated.
