Rostec showed the latest sensors based on various physical principles for detecting infantry and ground vehicles

Published

on

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.

You crash wrong. Apple admits car crash detection doesn’t work in all cases

You crash wrong Apple admits car crash detection doesnt work

After the release of the iPhone 14 series smartphones, enthusiasts began to test the car accident detection function, which is the main innovation of the standard model. There is also support for communication satellites, but it only works in the US and Canada.

According to Apple, this feature can determine if a user has been in a car accident. If after a collision the user does not respond within 20 seconds, the smartphone will automatically make an emergency call.

However, some users have found in tests that the iPhone 14 does not activate the car accident detection function in all cases, even after a collision. Apple has already commented on the situation.

Cupertino said that for this feature to work, you must meet the minimum requirements: the iPhone must be connected to Bluetooth or CarPlay. Moreover, the car must drive a certain distance: if the GPS in the smartphone shows that the car was moving along the highway, then the probability of the function being triggered will be higher.

Apple is not responsible for the operation of this feature, stating that it “may not be able to detect all vehicle crashes.”

Tesla Optimus humanoid robot will cost less than 20000 Specifications

As we already reported, yesterday Elon Musk presented a fresh prototype of the Optimus humanoid robot, details of which were published by Slashgear.

The robot is able to move all fingers independently, and there are sensors in the fingers for feedback and control of the grip force. The robot will be able to keep track of what it is holding. The arms have 27 degrees of freedom, the body – more than 200. At the same time, the robot weighs about 73 kg and consumes 100 watts in a sitting position and 500 watts when walking.

The heart of Optimus is a single-chip system developed by Tesla. He received Wi-Fi and LTE modules for a permanent connection to the Web. The 2.4 kWh battery is also designed by Tesla and is built into the Optimus’ chest.

The charge is expected to last a full day, though it’s unclear at this stage how much work the Optimus can handle. Elon Musk acknowledged that Tesla still has a lot of work to do to improve and refine the Optimus.

However, the Tesla CEO is enthusiastic about the potential: “Our goal is to build a useful humanoid robot as soon as possible. We plan to produce robots in large volumes, with low cost and high reliability.”

The biggest surprise is pricing, where Musk is very ambitious: “It’s expected to cost a lot less than a car.” Probably less than $20,000 is my guess. This is significantly less than even the cheapest Tesla car.”

Musk said the robot’s knee joint is inspired by human knees. Tesla also conducts crash tests, similar to those its cars go through, to make sure that any damage to the robot from a fall will only be superficial.

I have expensive cars I play golf and caress women

Apple chief executive Tony Blevins, the company’s vice president of purchasing, is leaving the firm after a rude comment left on the social media platform TikTok.

Daniel Mack, who creates content for TikTok and Instagram, asked Blevins what he does for a living. Mac is a popular tiktoker asking this question to people who drive expensive cars. Blevins was driving a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren valued at $500,000.

Tony Blevins’ answer ended up being the reason for his dismissal: “I have expensive cars, I play golf and caress women with large breasts. But I take weekends and holidays.” The video was recorded at the California Auto Show on August 18 and posted to social media in early September. The 25-second clip got 40,000 likes on Instagram and about 142,000 likes on TikTok. It has been viewed over 1.4 million times.

After Apple became aware of the incident, the company launched an internal investigation, during which Blevins was removed from managing his team of hundreds of Apple employees. An Apple spokesperson told Bloomberg that Blevins is leaving Apple. He issued a statement in which he apologized for his comment: “I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely apologize to everyone who was offended by my misguided attempt at humor.”

He was forced to leave Apple after working for the company for 22 years. Blevins was one of 30 top Apple executives who report directly to CEO Tim Cook. His job was to negotiate with suppliers to keep their prices low. He has also worked with contract manufacturers such as Foxconn, Pegatron, and other third-party firms that make Apple products.
