first_imgIT Trends of the Future That Are Worth Paying A… Break the Mold with Real-World Logistics AI and… 5 Ways IoT can Help to Reduce Automatic Vehicle… Continental, a German auto manufacturer, has announced plans to test a “robo-taxi” in Frankfurt. The CuBe (Continental Urban mobility Experience) will be a blueprint for the future development of autonomous shared transport in urban areas.The CuBe will be fitted with driver assistance programs and sensors already embedded into Level 2 cars found on the road today, like the Tesla Model S. Continental is adding a laser sensor to the car, and will build self-driving software that is personalized for a shared experience.See Also: Continental rolls into BMW’s self-driving consortium“The future of individual mobility in cities is autonomous and electric, and it will become part of the shared economy,” said Continental Executive Board member, Frank Jourdan. “This is why we’re developing cross-divisional solutions for driverless robo-taxis… we will be starting with practical testing this year.”Continental in a perfect positon?Jourdan thinks Continental is in a perfect position to be the leader in driverless pods, as it already supplies sensors, actuators, control units, and networking technology to automakers. Delphi, a rival parts supplier, is also working on its own self-driving system.“The trials will be used to identify all the essential technical requirements that enable safe, driverless passenger transport in urban areas,” said head of the self-driving project, Dr. Andree Hohm. “This helps us to find answers to questions about our product strategy and to deliver leading technology for individual mobility in the future – including driverless systems.”Continental has not mentioned any tests outside of Frankfurt, although the company does cite the congestion in cities like Berlin and London as major issues, which could be fixed through robo-taxis.

Bahamas DPM responds to Opposition statement on Moodys review

first_img#MagneticMediaNews#TurnquestRespondsToCoopersMoodyComments Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppcenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, July 13th 2017: Sheer amazement and disappointment, is how DPM and Finance Minister Peter Turnquest is describing the latest comments from the PLP camp on the Moody’s review. Turnquest in responding to the comments called it “the wrong statements at the wrong time”, and says there is a growth strategy in place, contrary to what the Exuma MP is saying. Chester Cooper released a statement on Tuesday, offering an olive branch to work with the current administration in bringing down debt levels, while offering words of advice on how to handle the current fiscal situation.Turnquest immediately discredited Cooper’s words, saying “these words have no place in the current debate on the Country’s fiscal challenges”. He went on to say it was no secret to both credit rating agencies, Standard and Poor’s and Moody’s, that the economy had been driven to the ground by the previous administration. The finance minister adds his administration was elected on a promise of transparency, and had a duty to come clean and not mislead the country, while undertaking the daunting task of putting in place the necessary reforms to stabilize public finances. Casting blame on the previous administration, Turnquest says “had they been more transparent, more honest and more responsible, the country would not have been facing these challenges”.last_img read more

Con Banega Crorepati

first_imgIt is not everyday that you see Dilliwallahs jostle to take a look at books. And buy them by the dozen. The Book Fair has been going mostly empty. But if you had been going to Dilli Haat over the last weekend, you would see how the place has completely transformed. All thanks to the Third Annual Comic Con. Every Delhiite worth his Diamond Comics came along. If not to buy books, to browse through them. If not to browse, then pick up merchandise. And if for nothing else, then to get themselves clicked with the quirky banners and with men and women who decided to give themselves a fun makeover. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Of course Comic Con is about comics. But it is as much about the merchandise, some of which you will get only at Comic Con which makes them all the more attractive for the funk-loving youngsters. And funky they all are. Superkudi, that hit theme of the last edition of Comic Con, has given way to Supermummy this year. So apart from banners, you could also pick up Supermummy tees, posters, wall clocks, cushions and even mugs. The ‘Wonder Bai’, or the ubiquitous Indian maid, was another favourite. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixBut what most people were seen jostling for (and some even went back disappointed since most stalls had run out of sizes) were the Superman and Batman tees. While some were the more regular ones, there were others which had been fun slogans. The Bangalore-based Hysteria, was seen doing brisk business with their badges, posters, tees, art prints and more. So much so, that you actually had to queue up to see their poster catalogue. While the now well-known Chumbak (every girl worth her auto raja boxers have heard of them) has a stall, we found the lesser known ones doing brisk business. The merchandise was similar — tees, mugs, quirky posters, calendars and even toys of comic characters — but each added their own quirky take to them. Want to voice an opinion? Wear it on the tee. That was the USP of the Wear Your Opinion stall. A stall which stocked Harry Potter merchandise, was also a crowd favourite.last_img read more

No need to go out of state bright career possible in Bengal

first_imgKolkata: State Education minister Partha Chatterjee said that students no longer need to venture out of the state for higher studies and assured them of a bright career in the state itself.”Some of the students have a misconception that they will not be able to make it big in Bengal and have to have the stamp of foreign countries. Bengal has seen a sea change in the education scenario. As many as 18,000 students from other states have come to Bengal this year for higher studies. We have as many as 4.5 lakh seats in our colleges and universities. So, they should come out of the misconception that they will be unable to manage a good career here,” Chatterjee said, while distributing scholarships to 51 toppers of Madhyamik Examination 2018, across 23 districts of Bengal. This was done as a part of the Jahar Lal Chandra Merit Scholarship Programme of a well known jewellery group. A scholarship of Rs 50,000 each was handed over to the students. Chatterjee made it clear that clearance from the state government will be mandatory now for setting up schools. “We will cancel the affiliation of any school that will be found running without our clearance certificate,” he added. The Education minister also unveiled the government’s plan of setting up two new universities at North 24-Parganas and Nadia.last_img read more
