Insight LiDAR Ready Industry’s First Self-Driving Vehicle Lidar Capable of Recognizing Human Body Movement

Published

on

Insight LiDAR, a technology development company for self-driving vehicles, has unveiled the Insight 1600 lidar. According to the company, it is the first lidar with the resolution and speed of pedestrian movement. It is argued that this capability can be used by self-driving systems to quickly and accurately predict pedestrian activity.

“When people are driving, they constantly scan their environment,” commented Greg Smolka, Insight LiDAR vice president of development. “We monitor cars entering our lane and look at nearby pedestrians to understand their intentions. For example, if a pedestrian at an intersection looks in both directions, the drivers understand that this person intends to cross the street. “

Insight LiDAR vice president Chris Wood said that detecting subtle pedestrian movements that convey their intent is an important safety feature that has eluded self-driving vehicle developers so far.

The Insight 1600, unlike most other lidars, uses a technology known as Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave or FMCW. It allows you to significantly increase the range and resolution of scanning, coupled with special software, making it possible not only to detect, but also to identify small objects with low reflectivity at distances exceeding 200 m.

An important advantage of the Insight 1600, the manufacturer calls the low cost in mass production, provided by the use of photonic integrated circuits and specialized integrated circuits, manufactured using the usual semiconductor manufacturing technology.

Even before the launch of Dojo, the Tesla supercomputer has 7360 Nvidia A-100 graphics accelerators and is ranked seventh in the world

Even before the launch of Dojo the Tesla supercomputer has

Tesla AI Infra & AI Platform manager Tim Zaman said the electric vehicle maker now has the world’s seventh largest supercomputer by number of GPUs. And this is before the launch of the Dojo supercomputer.

Tim Zaman confirmed that Tesla has upgraded its supercomputer to 7360 A100 (80 GB) GPUs. This makes the Tesla supercomputer one of the largest in the world in terms of the number of GPUs.

The A100 GPUs are made by Nvidia, where Zaman worked before joining Tesla. Each processor has 80 GB of graphics memory and has a bandwidth of 2 TB per second.

Even before the launch of Dojo, the Tesla supercomputer has 7360 Nvidia A-100 graphics accelerators and is ranked seventh in the world

Tesla’s current supercomputer is the forerunner of the Dojo. Interestingly, Tesla noted last year that the company’s supercomputer, even before Dojo, was already the fifth most powerful in the world with the 5760 Nvidia A100. The company has since added about 1,600 GPUs to the system.

The Tesla Dojo supercomputer is developed in-house, so instead of the Nvidia A100, it will use a custom Tesla D1 chip that will be supported by FP32, BFP16, and CFP8. Dojo will be optimized for machine learning workloads, specifically Tesla Autopilot and Full Self Driving.

Rostec showed the latest sensors based on various physical principles

Rostec for the first time showed the intelligence and signaling complex for covert surveillance 1K144-E, which includes sensors based on various physical principles. They are able to detect infantry and ground vehicles of the enemy, remaining completely invisible.

The complex includes seismic, infrared and magnetometric sensors up to 20 cm in size and weighing 150-600 grams. They are buried in the ground, camouflaged on the ground and provide continuous operation from built-in batteries for up to 30 days.

The system captures moving objects, determines the direction of their movement, counts and classifies them by type: wheeled vehicles, tracked vehicles or manpower. The complex is able to detect an infantryman within a radius of 30 m, wheeled vehicles – up to 120 m, a tank or infantry fighting vehicle – up to 200 m. You can install such sensors in a matter of minutes.

The data is displayed on the operator’s monitor in the form of an electronic map of the area with indications of the location of sensors and detected objects. The system is already being produced by the Sozvezdie Concern (part of Roselectronics).

At the Army forum, for the first time, we present a full-scale sample of the export version of the 1K144-E (TAS3) complex. This is an advanced covert remote surveillance solution for assessing the situation at controlled borders. The complex uses sensors operating on various physical principles, which ensures the reliability of the transmitted data.

This is Chery Tiggo 9 The latest crossover was shown

After the appearance of the first spy photos of the flagship crossover Chery Tiggo 9, renders were created to more accurately examine the expected new product.

The first information about Chery Tiggo 9 appeared last year, the car passes under the model number T26. It will get premium retractable door handles and a new design.

According to Chery’s internal documentation, the T26 will be built on the T2X platform, and its dimensions will only slightly exceed the Tiggo 8 Pro. The exact dimensions will be 4780 x 1920 x 1700 mm with a wheelbase of 2800 mm. Chery Tiggo 9 will be available in 5-, 6- and 7-seater versions. It will be equipped with 1.6- or 2-liter turbo engines, as well as a 7-speed “robot”. The drive can be front or full.

Chery is also preparing a crossover codenamed T26J, which will be a sports modification of the Tiggo 9 with a 5-seater saloon, a 2-liter engine and an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The front of the Chery Tiggo 9 will receive a frameless grille reminiscent of Omoda 5. The headlights are distinguished by LED running lights and a block of high and low beam located under them. Chery Tiggo 9 turn signals are represented by horizontal stripes that are located under the headlights. Fog lights and an adaptive cruise control radar can be seen at the bottom of the front bumper.

At the rear, Chery Tiggo 9 has a single block of lights. Stoplights and turn signals are located in the horizontal elements below them.
