The question is: reflex over reaction?

The question is: reflex over reaction?
Over the last two years, Fraunhofer IIS/EAS and the semiconductor manufacturer GLOBALFOUNDRIES have worked together in the project 'MARS' to advance the development of highly reliable 22nm FDSOI components. These components should pave the way for 'tactile intelligent systems' made in Dresden. Areas such as autonomous driving and applications in intelligent production will benefit enormously from such wirelessly networked systems capable of communicating with each other in real time.
