DIGITIMES Research report shows that Taiwan's ICT industry development has shifted from focusing on hardware to hardware/software integration models. The industry is combining big data analysis and AI applications in public IoT to facilitate the development of smart city management. Tools such as IoT, AI, cloud computing, and communications technologies are efficiently integrated with urban infrastructure to ultimately produce economic benefits and improve quality of life.
E-mobility can be life-changing, especially when you live in big cities and getting stuck in traffic is your daily routine. Unu Motors (styled as unu) is providing a life-changing, time-saving solution to Europeans, starting in Berlin, Germany.
Each country may have its own weaknesses or Achilles heels in industry development. For example, IC design is the weak spot of Japan and Korea. In the future, when it comes to designing various logic computing functions on memory chips, the lack of talent and a weak ecosystem will make it difficult for both countries to break through the past era of pure IC design.
Foxconn Technology Group (Hon Hai) has shown strong ambition to deepen its EV deployment by building a lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery cell factory in Kaohsiung, but it will face strong competition in the global LFP market, as existing battery makers are continuing their production expansions.
