Porsche Technicians Using 3X More Augmented Reality to Fix Cars - remote work is more than zoom video calls

Porsche Technicians Using 3X More Augmented Reality to Fix Cars - remote work is more than zoom video calls | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The coronavirus pandemic means the AR glasses have become even more useful for those working on the 911, Cayenne, Taycan, and other Porsches.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: everyone has experienced remote work in recent weeks. Zoom, Teams or Meet are fine if you work in an office. But out there in the fields, you need more. Enters AR, with the promise of hands free access to knowledge and télécommunications. This articles explains how AR is used to repair high end cars. Other applications include field service, architecture, etc. But be careful: the devices are bulky, with limited battery life and clunky software. For example, the company behind the AR glasses mentioned in the article has shut down a few years ago and magic leap is in dire straights. AR will remain an R&D experiment until Microsoft (most advanced today), Facebook, or Apple delivers useful glasses to the masses.

WELCOME TO RX ONLINE PHARMACY

Buy Oxycodone Online HERE at RX Pharmacy Online Store. Patients should buy Oxycodone Online from RX Pharmacy Online store which is the best online store for your pain pills.  Oxycodone is an opioid analgesic medication synthesized from the base. It was developed in 1916 in Germany, as one of several new semi-synthetic opioids with several benefits over the older traditional opiates and opioids; morphine, diacetylmorphine(heroin) and codeine. It was introduced to the pharmaceutical market as Eukodal or Eucodal and Darkon. Its chemical name is derived from codeine – the chemical structures are very similar, differing only in that the hydroxyl group of codeine has been oxidized to a carbonyl group (as in ketones), hence the -one suffix, the 7,8-dihydro-feature (codeine has a double-bond between those two carbons), and the hydroxyl group at carbon-14 (codeine has just hydrogen in its place), hence oxycodone. So buy oxycodone online

 

Tendencies towards the use of the internet pharmacies are observed not only in developed countries such as the USA and Canada but also within the territory of other countries. The advantages of internet shopping cannot be overstated. Every user can order the delivery of medications in a couple of minutes.

 

Tendencies towards the sale of the over-the-counter (OTC) drugs are also observed because it helps to save money and time. If a person does not have insurance covering all medical services, it is necessary to pay for the doctor’s consultations and quality medications. Expensive drugs become less demanded and popular under the conditions of the modern pharmaceutical market.

Robot Vehicles make contactless food deliveries amid #coronavirus quarantine via @IEEESpectrum | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Chinese startup UDI deploys self-driving vans to deliver food to lockdown areas. To do that, the startup has hired 100 employees and is preparing to put its assembly line into high gear in the next several months. “I’m not saying we solved all the problems,” Professor Liu says, citing system integration and cost as the biggest challenges. “Can we do better? Yes, it can always be better.”Click here to edit the content

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: tragedies often inspire innovation. I assume the autonomous vehicle will get a shot in the arm in the new normal of limited contacts. Watch the videos in the article to get a feeling on how the vans drive themselves - it is sometimes scary. Lots of improvements are required.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this is the Holy Grail of eCommerce: cheap, fast, reliable delivery of orders. Looks like grocery delivery, with its high frequency and large order size is the killer app as evidenced by these many tests by Walmart and - my own opinion - the acquisition of Whole Foods by Amazon.

How Shared Cars, Bikes, & Scooters Are Reshaping Transportation And Cannibalizing Car Ownership via @CBinsights | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Shared mobility services are more convenient — and in some cases, more affordable — than owning a car. We break down a number of these emerging modes of transport by trip length.
Personal car ownership isn’t dead yet.
That said, as cities in the US grow more congested, public transportation systems are failing and traffic is worsening, all of which is making quick and efficient transport more difficult.

All the data #self-driving cars take in from cameras looks like this- and the Webviz tool to visualize it is now open-source: will this lead to faster adoption of self-driving car technology?

Robo-cars are picking up everything its sensors see, hear, and detect. So to corral all this information, Cruise — through a hackathon event — created an open-source data visualization platform called Webviz. Other autonomous vehicle companies offer different aspects of the self-driving process, like Baidu's Apollo open-source autonomous driving platform. Now Cruise is opening up its application for anyone who works with robotics.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: interesting to see all the data self-driving cars process. More interesting though is that tools and technologies required to make self-driving cars, trucks and other vehicles is becoming more readily available which should spark an even faster adoption cycle.

Tesla Autopilot HW3 details from teslamotors describes a supercomputer in every Tesla cars to enable self-driving capabilities

Tesla Autopilot HW3 details from teslamotors describes a supercomputer in every Tesla cars to enable self-driving capabilities | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

For the past few months Tesla has been slowly sharing details of its upcoming “Hardware 3” (HW3) changes soon to be introduced into its S/X/3 lineup. Tesla has stated that cars will begin to be built with the new computer sometime in the first half of 2019, and they have said that this is a simple computer upgrade, with all vehicle sensors (radar, ultrasonics, cameras) staying the same. Today we have some information about what HW3 actually will (and won’t) be.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this very detailed and technical article describes the hardware components that make up the Tesla computer that drives autopilot and that should be powerful enough to enable self-driving in every Tesla today as promised. 

Claudio Marongiu's curator insight, April 27, 2019 10:59 AM
Tesla ha appena presentato sul mercato la nuova model3, l'auto che ufficialmente è in grado di guidare da sola. La parte interessante è che anche i vecchi modelli (quelli in grado di offrire un autopilot "parziale") potranno essere aggiornati con un chip che si trova dietro il volante, rendendo quindi potenzialmente tutte le tesla in grado di guidare senza autista. 

Ritengo che questa tecnologia sia ancora acerba, ma senz'altro riguarderà il futuro dei trasporti nelle nostre città.

Elon Musk interview by MIT professor sheds light into how advanced Tesla Autopilot is to deliver self driving experience - he predicts end of 2019 or 2020 at the latest #ArtificialIntelligence #AI ...

This conversation happened after the release of the paper from our group at MIT on driver functional vigilance during use of Tesla's Autopilot. The Tesla team reached out to me offering a podcast conversation with Mr Musk. I accepted, with full control of questions I could ask and choice of what is released publicly. I ended up editing out nothing of substance. This was an insightful discussion on various aspects of Tesla Autopilot that I hope catalyzes further nuanced conversation on the future of AI-assisted driving. Starts at 2:35. The full outline of the video is as follows:
0:00 Introduction
2:35 Start of conversation: Autopilot motivation
4:01 Display the vehicle's perception of the driving scene
7:11 Algorithms, data, and hardware development
10:23 Edge cases and common cases in driving
12:18 Navigate on Autopilot
13:57 Hardware and software path toward fully autonomy
17:08 Driver supervision of Autopilot
20:13 Human side of Tesla Autopilot (driver functional vigilance)
23:13 Driver monitoring
24:30 Operational design domain
26:57 Securing Autopilot against adversarial machine learning
28:29 Narrow AI and artificial general intelligence
30:10 Physics view of love
31:53 First question for an artificial general intelligence system

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this is a very geeky interview with Elon Musk on autopilot and the future of self-driving cars. Thoughtful, structured and informative it brings to light a very strong point: the value of a car lies in its capacity to self drive and every Tesla has this feature already builtin. Basically it means that cars will soon cross the threshold of autonomy, opening a whole new era for personal transportation. But more importantly I believe for businesses that rely on delivery logistics: ecommerce of course but also groceries, medical supplies, etc.

Nuro, the autonomous delivery startup, has raised $940 million in financing from the SoftBank Vision Fund, a whopping amount that will be used to expand its delivery service, add new partners, hire employees and scale up its fleet of self-driving bots. Nuro has raised more than $1 billion.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IOT MATTERS: fast & cheap delivery is the last issue to solve for eCommerce. This massive investment means that the technology will get deployed more widely. Unfortunately, as opposed to UBER, the company must manufacture deploy and manage the fleet of vehicle, which means that you will not it Nuro explode on the market in a few years like UBER did in the past 5 years.

Phoenix will no longer be Phoenix if Waymo’s driverless-car experiment succeeds | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Experimental Design imagines another scenario: neighborhoods eliminate the growing stream of delivery vehicles by organizing central locations or deploying a kind of package delivery van that comes around once or twice a day like an ice-cream truck. Neighbors might gather around the day’s influx of retail goods and exchange news, transforming the hermetic life behind closed garage doors into a more open and collaborative kind of community.

Digital Center of Competence must have 3 roles for successful digital transformations: align, build and network - according to @McKinsey

Digital Center of Competence must have 3 roles for successful digital transformations: align, build and network - according to @McKinsey | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The digital center of competence (DCoC) is responsible for setting direction and ensuring that learning is widely shared. In this structure, the competence center does not have P&L responsibilities, but it does have its own budget, and each business unit (BU) owns its own internal digital initiatives. The DCoC assumes three important functions to develop products and services, build skills across BUs, and create external networks.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: when you create a digital center of competence (which McKinsey suggests and I agree in most organizations), then you must equip it with a budget (seems obvious but rarely is) and give it a goal to DELIVER (not just strategize or think, which is often the case). This is the only way you can have the DCOC be owner of its future and the transformation that comes with it.

In our experience working with automotive suppliers, we have learned that successful digital transformations should be well designed and soundly executed across six core areas (Exhibit 1).

Customers could, Henry Ford once quipped, have a car in any colour they wanted so long as it was black. In the end consumer choice got the better of him; cars now come in all manner of complexions. Black, nevertheless, remains popular. Despite Ford’s equivocations, none of this has, until recently, presented carmakers with much of a problem. That is changing because, besides absorbing sunlight, dark shades also tend to absorb much of the signal transmitted from the increasing number of sensors being fitted to vehicles.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: digital transformation is such a hot topic today because it impacts every business function, from design to production to customer service. This article presents a very good example of such impact: car paint has to adapt (transform) to support the needs of digital technology. Maybe a future automobile selling point will become: "Buy this extra 750$ car paint so that you can be safer on the road, maximize visibility from other drivers, robots and self-driving cars!" Who knows...
