Simply Bluetooth may be enough to make roads safer. Ford is working on technology to detect pedestrians and cyclists

Perhaps for the foreseeable future, pedestrians and cyclists on the roads will be safer than they are now.

Simply Bluetooth may be enough to make roads safer.  Ford is working on technology to detect pedestrians and cyclists

Ford is working with Commsignia, PSS, Ohio State University, T-Mobile, and Tome Software to explore an affordable and scalable communications technology that could potentially help drivers warn drivers of pedestrians, cyclists, and other people—even those hidden from direct view. And it all relies simply on smartphones and the usual Bluetooth technology.

Ford’s idea is very simple. All smartphones are equipped with a Bluetooth module (Ford says Bluetooth LE is used), which can be used to make cars aware of the presence of pedestrians or cyclists nearby.

New Ford vehicles already equipped with Ford Co-Pilot360 technology can detect and alert drivers to pedestrians, cyclists, scooter riders and others, and even apply the brakes if drivers don’t react in time. We are currently exploring ways to expand vehicle detection capabilities in areas that drivers cannot see to help people drive even more confidently on roads that are increasingly being used by others.

The advantage of the new approach is that, firstly, almost all people have a smartphone, and secondly, almost all modern cars have Bluetooth. That is, no new hardware solutions are required. In addition, Ford is working with T-Mobile on a 5G version of the same technology.

Google expects excellent sales of Pixel 7 smartphones

Google expects excellent sales of Pixel 7 smartphones

It seems that despite the fact that the line of smartphones Pixel 7 is not very different from its predecessors, Google believes that they will sell very well.

Google expects excellent sales of Pixel 7 smartphones

The search giant has reportedly ordered 8 million new-generation devices and expects to double sales of new models relative to the Pixel 6 line.

At the same time, we recall that just the other day we learned that in six years Google has sold only 27.6 million Pixel smartphones. That is, the company intends to sell almost 30% of the total number of smartphones sold over six years only for older Pixel 7 devices.

It is also reported that the company has ordered 4 million lower class models, i.e. Pixel 7a models. In total, it turns out 12 million smartphones per year, or almost 45% of the total number of smartphones sold in six years.

We’ll find out how Google’s forecasts come true in about a year, but we can recall that at one time the models of the Pixel 6 line showed a multiple increase in sales relative to their predecessors.

The era of crazy CPU overclocking is back. Core i9-13900K already overclocked to 8.2 GHz

The era of crazy CPU overclocking is back Core i9 13900K

The new Intel Raptor Lake processors, like the GeForce RTX 40 graphics cards, clearly have impressive frequency potential.

The era of crazy CPU overclocking is back.  Core i9-13900K already overclocked to 8.2 GHz

We’ve already seen how the Core i9-13900K can hit 8GHz, and now it’s hitting the 8.2GHz mark. Of course, this is when using liquid nitrogen.

This frequency was achieved only on one core, while the rest worked in the frequency range of 5.7-6.3 GHz.

Judging by the results, the Core i9-13900K is still unlikely to outperform the AMD FX-8370/8150, which top the table of records in terms of frequency with a result of over 8.7 GHz. And even the result of Celeron B 352 at 8543 MHz is unlikely to be beaten, but the Core i9-13900K has definitely already broken all other records among Intel processors, that is, in terms of overclocking, this is the company’s best CPU in almost 20 years.

The GeForce RTX 4080 16GB video card has already shown what it is capable of in 3DMark, but now we can evaluate other features of the adapter.

It turns out that in the same benchmark, the GPU of this video card worked at a frequency of 3 GHz! The card at the same time consumed 333 watts, but surprisingly, the core temperature was only 61 degrees.

True, we do not have exact data on whether the native cooling system was used or, for example, liquid. There is also no data on whether GPU overclocking took place, although the memory frequency corresponds to the reference value. This fact may indirectly speak in favor of the lack of overclocking, but this is not at all necessary.

In any case, what matters to us is that the GPUs on the RTX 4080 and RTX 4090 can run at 3GHz without extreme overclocking.
