New standard arrives to incentivize radar functions in more devices

Published

on

Arrives Ripple, a new open source standard to promote new interoperable radar functions in a greater number of electronic devices, the maximum exponent being the Soli chip for which Google has been developing it for several years so that it is currently a reality in devices such as mobile phones Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 Xl, in addition to being also present in the second generation of Nest Hub smart displays for functions such as gesture control and sleep monitoring.

This new standard has now been presented at CES 2022 and behind it are renowned companies such as Google and Ford, among others belonging to the silicon, automotive and electronics industries, among others.

As pointed out from Google ATAP, the same incubator of experimental ideas from which the Soli chip came out, On twitter:

Ripple will unlock useful innovations that will benefit everyone. General-purpose radar is a key emerging technology for solving critical use cases while respecting privacy

For this, the first benefit of this new standard is that it will favor the creation of interoperable software libraries for:

work on various radar hardware implementations, ensuring easier firmware reuse and upgrades

In addition, with a reduced barrier to entry, it will enable integrators to initiate, develop and distribute radar solutions, bringing new products and services to consumers.

On the other hand, it encourages innovation, enabling developers to create specialized extensions that can be based on the standard to enable differentiated use cases, and finally, it also simplifies experimentation and prototype for researchers, students, startups, and more.

There is no doubt that the radar hardware elements have managed to be smaller, lower consumption and lower cost, thus allowing it to be implemented in a greater number of devices to unlock new functions based on movements.

On the official website they declare that:

Ripple, hosted by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), is developing an open radar API standard to enable hardware / software interoperability and accelerate the growth of applications for general-purpose consumer radars.

It is already a question that over time we will see new products and services based on radar applications arrive.

The electric version of the best-selling car in the US. Ford F-150 Lightning finally started shipping to retail customers

The electric version of the best selling car in the US

Ford has finally begun shipping its F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck to retail customers.

The electric version of the best-selling car in the US.  Ford F-150 Lightning finally started shipping to retail customers

The company started production of the machines last month, and now the machines have begun to arrive to customers. The very first such lucky person is captured in the photo above.

A resident of Michigan booked a Platinum Trim Lightning package on May 20 last year, and he received the car on May 26 of this year, that is, almost exactly a year later. Interestingly, this person owns a Tesla Model 3, has already posted a Cybertruck deposit, and was considering buying a Rivian R1T.

Since the Ford F-Series is the best-selling car in the US, it’s no surprise that the company has amassed a huge amount of pre-orders for the electric version, and right now Ford can’t say exactly when it will be able to fulfill all these orders. This year, the company is going to produce only 40,000 cars, despite the fact that orders have been collected at least 200,000.

Including subsidies, the car in the US starts at $40,000.

Telegram Premium is getting closer the messenger will no

Since its global launch, the Telegram messenger has positioned itself as a “free forever” product. This message appeared when installing the program on Android. More precisely, the slogan was: “Telegram is free forever. Without advertising. No subscription fees.” But now it looks like things are about to change.

Telegram Premium is getting closer - the messenger will no longer be “free forever”

Developer Alessandro Paluzzi said that the text of the slide has changed in the section with translations for the client applications of the messenger. Now it looks like this: “Telegram offers free unlimited cloud storage for chats and media files.” Although there has been no official statement from the developers so far, it can be assumed that this is preparation for the launch of Telegram Premium.

In the fall of 2021, advertising appeared in the messenger: ads began to be displayed in large channels and groups. Premium features were also previously announced: in particular, paid account holders will receive a special badge next to their name, full-screen emojis and some other features will be available to them.

Thus, Telegram plans to improve the monetization of the product.

It seems that Apple may at least nominally introduce its mixed reality headset in the near future.

A brand new Apple product could be unveiled in a week.  The company registers the trademark realityOS

Shortly before the WWDC 2022 event, which starts in a week, two company applications for the registration of the realityOS trademark were discovered on the Web at once. Recall that this will be the name of the operating system for the Apple headset.

These applications were filed back in December, but the important thing is that they have a foreign filing deadline – the date by which an applicant must file a foreign patent application in order to claim an earlier domestic patent application – June 8th. That is, two days after WWDC. That is, it is very likely that it is at WWDC 2022 that the Cupertino giant will for the first time tell something about its headset, or at least its OS.
