Baidu Uji Coba Mobil Otonom Berbasis Android Apollo

first_imgMobil otonom, yang dijalankan dengan aplikasi Apollo (www.technologyreview.com) Baidu raksasa teknologi asal Cina baru-baru ini membuat gebrakan baru, yakni dengan merilis kendaraan otonomnya yang digerakkan melalui sistem operasi smartphone Android Apollo. Kendaraan otonom atau mobil tanpa pengemudi ini telah dirancang sejak lima tahun silam.Baca juga: Ramaikan Jalanan di Las Vegas, Operator Mobil Otonom Ini Optimis ‘Sedot’ Banyak PenumpangPersisnya setelah setelah Google mengerjakan proyek mobil otonom seperti ini pada tahun 2009 lalu. Sejak itu, demi mengejar ketinggalannya, Baidu kemudian membuat hal serupa. KabarPenumpang.com melansir dari laman technologyreview.com (8/1/2018), bahwa sistem operasi mobil otomon Baidu ini bisa diunduh secara gratis dan Apollo 1.0 dirilis pada bulan Juli lalu serta uji coba mobil otonom ini sendiri pada jalanan umum di akhir 2017. Hingga kini, diketahui sudah 90 mitra yang menggunakan Apollo termasuk pembuat mobil Lincoln Ford, Continental dan pembuat chip Nvidia yang akan menyumbangkan data agar bisa digunakan.Jingao Wang, senior director of Baidu’s intelligent driving group and the head of Apollo, menghabiskan bertahun-tahun mengerjakan Android sejak awal, membantu peluncuran beberapa versi pertama dari OS dan smartphone Android awal. Dia mengatakan, dengan mengemudi secara otonom, pendekatan open source membuatnya lebih mudah karena ini adalah teknologi berbasis AI (Artificial Intelligent) yang membutuhkan data dalam jumlah besar untuk berkembang.Namun mobil otonom ini belum siap jika untuk digunakan pribadi. Sebab masih banyak yang harus diuji dalam pembuatan mobil ini dari memetakan jalanan, seperti lokasi lampu lalu lintas dan keadaan jalur lalu lintas itu sendiri.Selain mobil, Wang mengatakan bahwa perusahaan tersebut berencana untuk mencoba bus mini self-driving di Cina tahun ini pada area terbatas seperti lingkungan industri. Baidu juga meluncurkan tes di Los Angeles dengan wahana kendaraan otonom jarak pendek untuk kaum difabel yang akan dijadwalkan pada akhir tahun.Baca juga: Coba Peruntungan, Sony Ciptakan Mobil Otonom Futuristik!Baidu mengatakan akan bekerja sama dengan pembuat bus Cina untuk memproduksi bus tanpa pengemudi pada akhir 2018 juga. Terlepas dari sisi optimisme, Baidu menghadapi beberapa hambatan sangat nyata. Wang mengakui, masih ada pekerjaan yang harus dilakukan baik dalam memahami apa yang ada di sekitar seperti mobil, pesepeda, pejalan kaki atau berbagai hal lainnya yang ada di jalan raya. Apalagi dalam memprediksi kemungkinan yang akan terjadi selanjutnya.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedCalifornia Hadirkan AutoX, Mobil Otonom Pengantar Barang Pesanan29/08/2018In “Basis Aplikasi”Lampaui AS, Cina Mulai Operasikan Taksi Otonom Level Tertinggi, Apollo RoboTaxi17/08/2020In “Basis Aplikasi”Nuro, Mobil Otonom Pengantar Pizza Hadir Akhir Tahun di Houston21/07/2019In “Basis Aplikasi”last_img read more

Deadline for Drone Registration Refund Approaching

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Drone owners should register their unmanned aerial vehicles into the federal database by January 20 if they want their five dollar registration fee refunded. The FAA is also promoting a new app called B-4-U Fly which can help if you have questions about the rules for flying drones. Drones weighing between .55 lbs to 55 pounds must be registered in the FAA’s database. Drones which weigh more than 55 lbs must be registered as a typical aircraft. Administrator Michael Huerta with the Federal Aviation Administration told a panel at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month that the agency has simplified registrations. Huerta: “We’ve streamlined the current authorization process – the rule will greatly decrease the need for case-by-case approvals – increasing commercial operators’ ease-of-access to the national airspace system.” When registering, owners will be required to pay $5.00 but those that register before January 20 will have that fee refunded.

Trimble tied it with a deep 3 and Layman hit another long shot to put the Terps up 53-48.Shields’ jumper and three-point play got the Huskers back to 55-53 and got the crowd on its feet. Layman blocked what would have been the tying shot by Shields, and then Trimble showed off a couple of slick moves in the lane. He snaked through for a layup, and the next possession he passed off to Wells, who made a layup to make it a six-point game with four minutes left.Nebraska was up six points in the first half after Petteway’s dunk of Tai Webster’s steal finished a 12-3 run. Trimble was on the bench for most of the time the Huskers were building a lead. He picked up two quick fouls and was limited to nine minutes in the first half.The Terps chipped away at the deficit, and despite committing nine turnovers and shooting 38% in the first half were able to take a 31-29 lead into the locker room.TIP-INS: Maryland — The Terps’ 26 wins is a nine-game improvement from last season. … The 26 wins matches the most in a season in Mark Turgeon’s 17 years as a head coach. His 2005-06 Wichita State team, which went to the Sweet 16, also won 26. … The 7-foot-1 freshman Michal Cekovsky was back after missing two games with a left knee injury.Nebraska — The eight-game losing streak is the program’s longest since a nine-game skid in 2002-03. … Forward Walter Pitchford returned after missing a game with a hip flexor injury. … Moses Abraham, Kye Kurkowski, Trevor Menke, David Rivers and Leslee Smith were honored during a pregame seniors night ceremony.UP NEXT: Maryland plays in a Big Ten tournament quarterfinal Friday.

College football: Henderson’s career night helps La. Tech roll past UMass

first_imgFOXBORO, Mass. (Oct. 15, 2016) – Just when you thought Carlos Henderson had a career night last week against WKU, think again.Henderson outdid himself Saturday night when the receiver eclipsed 300 yards receiving on 12 receptions and caught five touchdowns to help lead LA Tech to a 56-28 victory over Massachusetts at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro.With the win over UMass, LA Tech notched to its third straight victory to move to 4-3 on the season.After putting together a three-touchdown first half last week against the Hilltoppers, Henderson followed up with a nearly identical performance in the opening half and then some against UMass. Once it was all said and done, Henderson became the first player in school history with more than 300 yards receiving and five touchdowns in the same game.Henderson’s 326 receiving yards are the most by any Bulldog receiver since Troy Edwards in 1998 and the second-most in program history behind only Edwards.In addition to Henderson’s highlight-reel day, Ryan Higgins racked up 484 passing yards and was 26-of-33 passing with five touchdowns, all of which went to Henderson. Trent Taylor also surpassed the 100-yards receiving mark with nine catches for 126 yards, while Jarred Craft and Boston Scott combined for 190 rushing yards on the day.It took Louisiana Tech just 75 seconds to get on the board thanks to a three-play opening drive that included a 50-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Higgins to Carlos Henderson to put the Bulldogs up, 7-0, over the Minutemen. LA Tech has now scored on every opening drive this season.A 41-yard punt return by the Minutemen midway through the first quarter of play set up the game-tying touchdown by UMass, a 9-yard rushing score by Marquis Young to tie the game, 7-7, with 6:12 left to play in the first quarter.LA Tech once again took the lead over the Minutemen with a quick 37-second scoring drive in the second quarter after Higgins’ second touchdown pass of the afternoon to Henderson to put the Bulldogs ahead, 14-7, over UMass.With the Bulldogs knocking on the door at the 3-yard line, Holtz sent out the T-bone formation as Kam McKnight punched it in easily for his fifth rushing touchdown of the season to give LA Tech a 21-7 lead over UMass in the first half.UMass wasted no time responding as the Minutemen needed less than a minute to go 58 yards and cut LA Tech’s lead to 21-14 with an 18-yard touchdown pass from Andrew Ford to Dan Jonah to make it a one-score game with under a minute to play in the first half.Louisiana Tech never flinched as the Bulldogs put together a 7-play, 74-yard scoring drive and used up just 51 seconds on the clock to take a 28-14 lead over the Minutemen thanks to Henderson’s third touchdown reception of the first half, a 5-yard pass from Higgins to put the Bulldogs up by two touchdowns.In the third quarter, UMass struck first after a sack fumble gave the Minutemen the ball on the LA Tech 14-yard line, which led to a 14-yard touchdown pass from Ford to John Robinson-Woodgett to cut the Bulldogs’ lead to 28-21.Forty-two seconds later, Higgins and Henderson responded with their fourth connection of the game, this one for 83 yards to extend LA Tech’s lead, 35-21, over UMass with 11:19 left in the third quarter.The Bulldog defense stepped up shortly after with a 19-yard touchdown on a fumble recovery by Russell Farris following the forced fumble by Jaylon Ferguson with just over 11 minutes left in the third quarter to give LA Tech a 42-21 lead over UMass.Henderson did it again early in the fourth quarter as he nabbed his fifth touchdown catch of the day, a 6-yard pass from Higgins to cap off a 7-play, 82-yard drive to put the Bulldogs ahead, 49-21, over UMass.Boston Scott put the icing on the cake for the Bulldogs late in the fourth when the running back capped off the scoring with a 71-yard rushing touchdown to give LA Tech a 56-21 advantage over the Minutemen.LA Tech returns to Conference USA play next Saturday, Oct. 22 as the Bulldogs travel to Miami to take on league foe FIU at 6 p.m. at FIU Stadium. — Louisiana Tech Sports Information; feature photo courtesy of Louisiana Tech Sports InformationTop Expat InsuranceExpat Living in Hong Kong without Health Insurance?Top Expat Insurance|SponsoredSponsoredUndoNews gadgetThis watch takes the whole country by storm! it’s price?

England on top despite Abid Ali half century for Pakistan

first_imgSOUTHAMPTON, England, (Reuters) – Pakistan opener Abid Ali scored a half-century but England’s seam bowlers used the muggy conditions to their advantage to restrict the tourists to 126 for five at the close of a rain-hit opening day of the second test at the Rose Bowl yesterday. The tourists chose to bat first and were fortunate not to lose more wickets as the bounce, movement off the seam and swing through the air in hot, overcast conditions was perfectly suited to England’s experienced seam attack.Babar Azam (25 not out) and Mohammad Rizwan (4 not out) will resume on the second morning, seeking to rescue the innings in their bid to rebound from a three-wicket loss in the first test.Abid (60) was twice dropped at second slip as he rode his luck, before finally being snatched by Rory Burns in that position off the bowling of left-arm seamer Sam Curran, who came into the England side in the place of Jofra Archer. Burns also caught visiting captain Azhar Ali (20) from the bowling of James Anderson (2-35), who had earlier trapped centurion from the first test, Shan Masood (1), leg before wicket.The slip-catching practice continued as Asad Shafiq (5) was well taken low down by Dom Sibley off Stuart Broad.Batsman Fawad Alam (0) had waited almost 11 years since his previous test innings, but lasted only four balls before Chris Woakes made it a return to forget with another lbw decision that was given on review by the television umpire. Pakistan were saved further loss of wickets with the conditions firmly in favour of the bowlers when the players left the field after more rain with only 45.4 overs bowled in the day.This time it was for good as lightening lit up the gloomy evening sky. England had earlier recalled batsman Zac Crawley for all-rounder Ben Stokes, who has withdrawn from the remainder of the three-match series for personal reasons.last_img read more
