The evolution of mobile phones has seen them change from the large, cumbersome devices that emerged in the 80s to the smartphones that drive business today. It is hard to imagine life without them given all the ways they make it easier. As a result, new and advanced technologies are employed daily to make these little contraptions even more efficient. At a glance, engineering leads the way in transforming the way live and work. It has its various applications in manufacturing, energy, education and even in transportation. It’s potential to reduce the cost of living, and as such drive economic growth is limitless. Nonetheless, one thing is for certain. The mobile phone also plays an integral part in this vision. It is through it that the major components of day to day living are now connected and effectively managed. Mobile phones and engineering, therefore, go hand in hand to make all this possible.
The Impact of Engineering
Imagine this. Your phone alarm goes off at 6.30a.m. You get up and head to the kitchen, to find a hot cup of coffee waiting for you. No, it was not your fairy godmother who prepared it. Electronics engineering enabled your mobile phone to communicate with the coffee maker 30 minutes before your alarm went off, to initiate the process. This is only one of the numerous applications of the positive impact that engineering has on everyday life. This is the future of mobile computing. You will be surprised to learn just how much of your waking life you spend on your phone. According to results from a study that was conducted by Dr Richard House, a British psychologist, people use phones an average of 5 times an hour for every hour that they are awake. The psychological impact this has is a discussion to be had later. But from a technological perspective, that kind of usage requires a very efficient power source. The more sophisticated the smartphone technology gets, the more demands it makes on the battery. Thankfully, the new Lithium-rich battery could last much longer than the conventional batteries.
The Future of Mobile Engineering
Mobile engineering is constantly evolving to meet the changing demands of its users. Machine to machine connectivity represents the next frontier of mobile computing. Today, their applications in business include advertising and marketing through mobile websites and social networking with customers. There are apps that enable online trading, QR codes for quick links to the product site, and customer support on the move. Mobile software engineering has developed apps for virtually every industry you could think of. From information on quick and easy recipes to beat making online, there’s an app to ease the learning curve and make you an expert in no time. Phones are engineered to keep track of your movements, your health, and even give you accurate directions to new locations. In addition to this, there is software that can interpret and translate foreign languages. This increases the opportunities for external economic interaction with international countries, as well as individual travels. All things considered, the future of mobile computing only gets brighter by the day.
