Hot or not Flirs thermal AV camera gets upgraded at CES 2019

first_img Share your voice 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value Self-driving cars 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better More From Roadshow Post a comment CES 2019center_img Auto Tech Tags When people talk about sensors for self-driving cars, they usually focus on the ones most often talked about: lidar, ultrasonic (parking) sensors and good old-fashioned cameras. Flir came to CES 2019 to tell everyone that we’re still missing something.Flir, a company that specializes in thermal imaging, came to CES 2019 to show off its second-generation thermal camera development kit. The whole point of the kit is to provide a simple solution for adding thermal recognition to an existing autonomous vehicle platform. This isn’t something for you or me, unless you’re an AV platform developer — this is largely for suppliers and companies.So why care about thermal? According to Flir, it’s all about adding an extra layer of mapping to pick up things that other parts of a sensor suite might miss. The company says its infrared camera can detect objects in conditions that would befuddle other types of sensors, like when there’s fog or excessive glare from the sun. In theory, the system could detect a car solely by picking up on the heat signatures generated from the friction between its tires and the road.Enlarge ImageFlir’s hardware can connect to existing AV platforms using USB or ethernet, but you’ll need a few, since each camera works in just a single direction. Flir Redundancy is a big theme in autonomy — making sure the car can continually fall back on other systems if the initial ones have troubles — so consider this camera a little extra peace of mind. The window of the camera is even heated, to help its functionality in adverse weather conditions.To help showcase its tech in something tangible, Flir brought an entire autonomous vehicle to CES 2019, too. Flir’s AV is equipped with its own infrared cameras in addition to the standard collection of cameras, lidar and radar. Flir’s hardware is integrated into the autonomous emergency braking system, offering another layer of protection against a collision. Thermal is an oft-overlooked corner of AV development, so it’ll be interesting to see where Flir’s cameras end up as automakers and suppliers continue to refine their platforms.flir-thermal-camera-2Enlarge ImageFlir’s demonstration car doesn’t look all that different from other modern AV development mules — except, of course, it has a few more cameras slapped on top.

Telecom Auction Kicks off with Focus on Reliance Jio

first_imgIntense bidding is expected at India’s telecom spectrum auction that begins on 4 March.While existing majors are seen as having weaker pricing power, Reliance Jio’s entry is poised to make the auction highly competitive.According to Fitch Ratings, telcos are likely to commit at least $13bn (£8.47bn, €11.64bn) in the auctions – over 75% of which is likely to be contributed by the top-four telcos.”Most telcos’ net debt will rise to fund spectrum payments while competition limits their ability to raise tariffs, particularly with the impending entry of a new competitor, Reliance Jio,” Fitch said in a note.The top-three telcos – Bharti Airtel, Vodafone India and Idea Cellular – could commit around $2.5bn-4.5bn each to renew their expiring spectrum in six, seven and nine regions, respectively, the rating agency said.They are also likely to acquire additional spectrum to support fast-growing data services.Idea is most exposed to the auctions as it needs to retain its expiring spectrum in circles which contribute around 70% of its annual revenue. Such revenue contributes 45% and 35% of annual Indian revenue for Vodafone and Bharti, respectively, Fitch said.Telcos whose 900MHz spectrum is expiring will prefer to retain this bandwidth, as having to switch frequencies could require significant capex and disruption of the already-established network.Reliance CommunicationsReliance Communications will be the least affected as it is likely to commit a maximum of $667m in seven circles, where the competition for spectrum will be lower, Fitch said.Reliance Jio, a subsidiary of Reliance Industries, which plans to roll out its services in 2015 with an investment budget of $12bn, is likely to fill its spectrum gaps in the 1,800MHz band.”However, as occasionally seen in the earlier auctions, Reliance Jio could also push up the spectrum price in 900MHz for other telcos, if it chooses to do so, as the auction mechanism hides the identities of participants,” the Fitch note showed.The rating agency said the 900MHz auction price could rise at least 20% higher than the reserve price.There are eight telecom service providers participating in the auction: Reliance Communications, Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel, Vodafone India, Tata Teleservices, Uninor, Idea Cellular and Aircel.These eight companies have submitted an earnest money of Rs 204.35bn ($3.3bn). The Kolkata-based mjunction services, an information technology company, will conduct the auction for the Department of Telecom.last_img read more

More Than A Million People Have Already Voted Across Greater Houston

first_imgListen To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Share X Al OrtizVoters lined up since 8:00 a.m. at the Champion Life Centre, in Spring, on Monday October 24th, the first day of Early Voting.More than a million people have already cast their ballots across Greater Houston for the presidential election.Harris County is at the top of the list for voter turnout so far in Texas.Houston Public Media’s Coverage of Election 2016As of November 1st, more than 700,000 people had cast ballots, combining in person votes and those that have been mailed in.Bob Stein, political science professor at Rice University, says the interest in this election is marked by high turnout in places where it is not that usual.“We are seeing areas where there are new voters who are voting early who have previously not voted in presidential elections in 2008 and 2012, and even in, of course, 2014 mid-term,” says Stein, who details he is referring to places like northwest Harris County and neighborhoods such as The Heights and Montrose.Stein also says a preliminary analysis makes him think the Democratic Party could have an advantage in Harris County because Houston has leaned in that direction in previous elections and people who vote early tend to be more partisan.Stein adds there are also some other interesting trends.“Between 2012 and 2016, I’ve identified 117,000 newly registered Hispanic surname voters in Harris County,” Stein notes. “And a disproportionate number of those voters, newly registered Hispanic voters, are voting early.”Stein considers that, if theories indicating Hispanics are more prone to support Democrats are correct, the Democratic Party could have the edge in Harris County.He also thinks that could translate into Republican political action committees buying more air time for advertising in Texas’ markets during the last week of the campaign.The big turnout is setting records in surrounding counties, such as Fort Bend.“We’re probably 30,000 voters ahead at this point in time from where we were in the last presidential in 2012, which was our heaviest early voting. Our biggest election ever was the last presidential. So, we are running well above that,” John Oldham, Fort Bend’s Elections Administrator, says. He added that they have received few complaints about the process. 00:00 /02:05last_img read more
