Highway ban squeezes lanes for China’s self-driving car industry

traffic at night, shanghai china.

In a potential setback for China’s accelerating autonomous vehicle industry, the government has banned such cars from testing on the nation’s highways.

A Bloomberg report via Motortrend that revealed Chinese automobile regulators decided to block self-driving cars from undergoing tests on public highways.

The report found that Chinese auto authorities are collaborating with police to develop regulations around the testing of self-driving cars on the country’s main roads. Indeed a preliminary draft of regulations has already been developed by the industry.

However, there is no time frame for when the new regulations will be ready according to China’s top functionary at the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, She Weizhen. Until that unspecified date, autonomous cars must stay out of circulation on China’s busiest thoroughfares.

China driven to self-driving

Though the ministry said work on the new regulations are well underway, any delay for the industry could stall momentum in China’s heretofore hard-charging autonomous vehicle industry.

In particular, the moratorium on highway testing of self-driving cars on the highways will hurt research that incorporates data on real-world driving habits and traffic conditions.

The decision by the Chinese government to limit testing follows negative reaction to a fatal accident this spring in the U.S. involving a Tesla car driving in autopilot mode. As a result of the fatality the American National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened an investigation that exposes autonomous vehicles to unwelcome skepticism.

As reported earlier by ReadWrite, China was well ahead of regulatory curve regarding autonomous vehicle testing from a global perspective. The government had stated that they aimed to implement regulations that are standardized across the entire country. It said that these rules would pave the way for autonomous vehicles that will appear on China’s highways in three to five years, and then in Chinese cities by 2025.

The unified regulatory approach was seen as giving China a significant advantage over countries like the U.S. which suffers from a disjointed patchwork of state standards and laws for self-driving cars.

And a huge amount is riding on competition for dominance in the market for autonomous vehicle development and production. The Chinese government has signalled that much of the country’s industrial recovery is dependent on pivoting its traditional manufacturing industries to innovative sectors like autonomous vehicles.

China’s Premier Li Keqiang recently announced his country is seeking new growth in emerging technology like the Internet of Things (IoT) and self-driving vehicles.

Navigant four-fold sensor market growth through 2025

hand holding mobile phone with analyzing graph against office buildings with sun

According to a new report from Navigant, the revenue from wireless sensors is estimated to increase from $188.2 million in 2016 to $745.2 million by 2025.

As operational technologies and information meet, sensors have begun to play an important role in directing smart building solutions that can offer insight through data-driven tools.

Wireless connectivity improves these sensor abilities by providing an easy connection to larger networks that can raise the amount of connected devices and allow more control over building systems.

See Also: Could smart cities improve indoor air quality with home sensors?

Navigant Research recently published the new report that studies the world market in regards to advanced wireless sensors, including information on how drivers and barriers for smart building development can affect the market. Also found in the report are revenue forecasts that are divided by customer type and region, up to the year 2025.

“The growing popularity of wireless systems is attributed to factors, including flexibility, lifecycle cost, changing demands, and the expectations of occupants and facility managers,” states Christina Jung, a research associate with Navigant Research. “Wireless sensors amplify the benefits of intelligent building solutions because of the ease of connectivity, and they present a strong business case for retrofit projects over wired systems due to labor and wiring costs.”

Navigant sees control upside driving growth

According to the report, wireless sensors allow for better control over building systems while avoiding many of the problems faced by running standard cabling to support communications and power. Buildings with large turnover rates, frequent space changes, or retrofit work would greatly benefit from wireless sensors deployment, due to the simplicity in relocating sensors.

The report, Wireless Sensors for Commercial Buildings, explains that due to the fact that intelligent building is reliant on creating a data-rich environment, sensors play a vital role in facilitating these solutions.  Sensors can collect, communicate, and can even analyze energy and operational information.

The answer is to allow useful information to direct fundamental changes in operations that result in energy efficiency improvements with reduced cost. Also important, is wireless connectivity, which can offer more flexibility for sensors and increase the benefits of smart building solutions.

Intel pivot to IoT produces lackluster growth

Santa Clara, USA - March 26, 2012: Intel headquarters in silicon vallye. Intel Corporation is a portmanteau of Integrated Electronics. It is the inventor of the x86 series of CPU, the processors can be found in most personal computers.

Intel’s restructuring towards a focus on Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud-based businesses delivered disappointing growth this quarter.

As reported by Computer Weekly, the U.S. microchip behemoth posted profits that were down 51% this quarter compared to the same period last year.

The poor results were blamed on $1.4 billion in restructuring costs as Intel refocuses on businesses linked to IoT and cloud computing. This follows the announcement in the first quarter of 2016 to cut 12,000 employees, or 11% of its worldwide workforce, as part of the strategic reorientation.

Though growth figures were glum, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich noted that Q2 revenues matched the company’s outlook and profitability was better than forecast. Intel posted revenues of $13.5 billion, which is an increase of 3% from a year ago.

“Our restructuring initiative to accelerate Intel’s transformation is solidly on track,” said Krzanich. “We are gaining momentum heading into the second half.”

The restructuring is projected to produce $750 million in cash savings this year and $1.4 billion in annual savings beginning in 2017.

Intel also lagging on data centers

However, for this quarter Intel did not hit growth targets for microchip sales destined for data centers. These sales were meant to compensate for a slowing trend in sales of personal computers and their requisite components.

Revenues for data centers rose only 5% to $4 billion, which was less than half the growth of last year and less than analysts’ estimates of $4.16 billion. Meanwhile IoT revenues were $572 million, an increase of just 2% compared to the same period last year.

Nonetheless, Intel brass remained optimistic that the restructuring will produce the desired results sooner or later. “While we remain cautious on the PC market, we are forecasting growth in 2016 built on strength in data centers, the Internet of Things and programmable solutions,” said Krzanich.

Specifically, Intel is betting that corporate clients will buy its new datacenter chips which will be launched later this year. The microprocessors are based on Intel’s Broadwell micro-architecture and are aimed at the enterprise market.

This follows other moves by Intel to move further into such realms as autonomous vehicles and machine learning.

IoT and cameras: Going from smart to intelligent

Car lights taken at night for a neon glow effect on the M25 in the UK.

Eyes are considered to be the most powerful human sense. The equivalent technological tool is an intelligent video camera that can observe, analyze and act on provided information. This technology is know as Intelligent Video Analytics or Video Content Analysis.

Vendors such as Cisco and IBM are key companies in the market. Internet of Things (IoT) technologies are only beginning to integrate intelligent cameras. Here are some examples of IoT platforms that are already using this innovative tech and the potential future market segments.

What is an intelligent video camera?

An intelligent video camera is connected to a cloud that analyzes live video content. Events captured by the camera can instantly lead to desired actions. The ability to take action without a human operator is what makes the camera intelligent.

Imagine the video camera capturing a car accident or someone falling on the ground. Instead of manually monitoring the traffic or a public place, the intelligent camera will instantly call emergency central or other necessary assistance, thus lower the reaction time from accident to action.

Key vendors in the market are Agent Vi, Axis Communications, Bosch Security Systems, Cisco, Honeywell Security and IBM. Research and Markets suggests the main market sectors to be transportation and logistics, banking and financial services, governmental, industrial, retail, healthcare and banking and financial services.

Intelligent traffic cams

Intelligent cameras in traffic can monitor, solve logistical problems and help you get home safe and sound. Intelligent cameras can notify you of empty space in a lane or optimize your driving path. The video camera can be installed along roads or in your car. Intelligent cameras can detect who drove on a red light and only capture and save that exact moment. The transition from smart to intelligent cameras makes the analytics select only the necessary data to be saved for later investigation. Intelligent cameras can also recognize a license plate. Imagine that the garage door opens by itself when recognizing your license plate in the driveway or analyzing who is in the car in front of you.

IntelliVision — its demo is below — and other vendors such as Infinova, Nice Systems, ObjectVideo, Verint and VideoIQ are noticeable leading companies contributing and shaping the intelligent video market.

Facial recognition also helps

Face recognition can become an essential feature in public security and home monitoring. Detecting or tracking people, observing a person’s behavior, counting number of steps or identify who left a bag on the train station. For home monitoring, features as your door unlocking once you get home only by recognizing your face. The camera might even give you a push notification on your phone about who is outside your front door or in your backyard.

Making the megacity sustainable through IoT

Fog in Dubai Marina

32.6 trillion liters.

That, roughly, is the amount of water annually lost through leaky pipes before it gets to homes, businesses and hospitals. Put another way, if you could detect those leaks and plug them, you could almost fill China’s Three Gorges Dam to the brim every year with clean, treated water.*

The “leaky pipe” problem highlights one of the biggest challenges we face in the coming decades. Simply put, we’re going to have to figure out new ways to bring basic resources like food, power and water to a growing number of people who increasingly live in large urban centers. These are the defining issues of Sustainable Cities.

Approximately 54% of the world’s population now lives in urban areas, a figure that will likely rise to 66% by 2050. China alone will have 221 cities with over one million people by 2025 (Europe has only 35 today). The number of megacities with more than ten million residents will more than double in the coming years.

The good news is that we can do this. The increasing sophistication and declining cost of digital technologies will become a platform for economizing resources and sharing physical space in ways that are both economical and more convenient. Things will be micromanaged, but you won’t feel like you’re being micromanaged.

All kinds of resources are leaking away

Consider the experience of Maynilad, the water agency for Manila. Maynilad serves millions of customers over 540 square kilometers: it manages nearly 7,500 kilometers of water and sewer pipes and 19 reservoirs. In 2007, nearly 20% of the citizens in its service territory could not even get service, roughly half did not have 24-hour service and over half did not have sufficient water pressure to support basic functions and services.

As part of an overhaul, Maynilad pursued an aggressive program to monitor the entire water system with metrics like real-time water flows, while mapping consumption patterns in different geographies. By 2013, it was servicing 94.7% percent of its customers, 97% had 24 hour service and 99% had sufficient pressure. At the same time, Maynilad recovered 640 million liters of treated water.

Or consider power theft. Electric power is the third most lost [stolen] commodity in the world. Some estimate that over 30% of India’s electric power gets stolen on a regular basis, causing chronic blackouts and economic losses exceeding $17 billion annually. These kinds of losses happen everywhere, not just in India. South Africa, Brazil and Eastern Europe face similar challenges. Technology has been developed that can remotely detect unusual usage patterns and thwart thieves. (A substantial portion of stolen power is used in illegal drug operations so it has a positive impact on community safety as well.)

These same technologies to monitor the electricity grid, can be used inside of the buildings and businesses connected to the grid. In fact they will become a gateway for economic revitalization. Studies show that energy efficient buildings achieve higher rental rates and often get “leased up” more quickly: on average, owners claim their ROI is 19.2% higher than on normal projects. In another example of using technology to drive sustainable outcomes, smart parking systems can reduce emissions and energy consumption as well as reduce resistance to coming to crowded down areas. It’s no coincidence that urban campuses like Carnegie Mellon and UC Berkeley have been incubating start-ups in this market.

Not only for the megacity

Megacities, won’t be the only proving ground either. Lawrence, Kansas, a college city with a population of 90,000 is currently experimenting with using software to reduce the cost and energy involved in treating wastewater by shifting treatment procedures to off-peak hours. These technologies are being tested and deployed in both Megacities and villages.

Microgrid technologies being developed and tested in Industrial Academic centers are being deployed in places like rural India, where sustainable supply of clean renewable energy is a real life changer, providing power necessary for refrigeration, water treatment and other basic necessities.

None of this, of course, will happen overnight. Advanced lighting and energy management systems will have to pass multiple pilot tests before they percolate everywhere. The first widespread “smart” vehicles won’t likely won’t be passenger cars. They may be ships, trains and trucks operating at first in somewhat controlled environments and their performance will be dissected in multiple ways. Technology providers are also going to have to figure out new business models—as a service? Lease to own?– to make these upgrades as painless as possible.

Privacy and security also have to be considered. When Twitter goes down, people make jokes about it on the Internet. If your metropolitan transportation district unexpectedly shut down, the result would be chaos. Making sure systems are resilient, secure and redundant will be just as important, if not more important, than new features.

Again, this won’t be easy. The next few decades will be a time of trial and error. But I believe we’re going to discover we have more resources than we thought, and collectively we will drive Sustainable Outcomes and the technology platforms will be a key component of every city and village. I am excited about this future, I am excited about Sustainability, and I am excited about the technologies to help make it happen.

Philadelphia preps for its Smart City Challenge

smart-city-huawei

Philadelphia has announced a goal to create a large multi-purpose wireless network — called the “Smart City Challenge” — that will depend on public-private partnerships to address the digital divide and enhance existing operations and services.

Site of the upcoming Democratic convention, Philadelphia has frequently been recognized for placing among the top municipal governments for the utilization of technology that improves local services.

The city’s newly reconfigured Office of Innovation and Technology is looking for forward-thinking community members to propose ideas that will strengthen the city’s connection to the Internet of Things (IoT).

“The City of Philadelphia is interested in determining if the existing assets could be leveraged to better city operations and services,” explained Ellen Hwang, the city’s Program Manager for Innovation Management. “The City seeks information and ideas on any products and technologies that could use these assets as a platform to improve public safety, public infrastructure maintenance, energy efficiency, public space management, transportation and quality of life for the residents and businesses of Philadelphia.”

What would Philadelphia officials like to see?

Officials are searching for ideas from specialists, designers, technologists, telecommunications specialists, ad agencies, entrepreneurs and urban enthusiasts that live in Philadelphia and anyone else from around the globe that would like to participate in the Smart City Challenge.

Some ideas include:

  • Public Safety Surveillance: Extra video surveillance locations and cameras, that are used solely for public safety purposes, which police could monitor, especially in larger crime locations.
  • Gunshot Detection: Detection gadgets that can recognize a gunshot and send the information to the City’s 911 Center, while also directing the city’s cameras in the area to focus on the area where the gunshot was placed.
  • Meter Reading: Remote meter-reading that collects information and forwards it to the Water Department for billing.
  • Street Lighting Controls: Remotely controlled lighting systems that respond to citizens, provide important data, and/or decrease energy expenses.
  • Transportation Analytics: Technologies that can recognize traffic flow changes, cyclist and pedestrian activity, and parking options.

Developers with ideas should review the Request for Ideas site and apply.

Will these wearables finally make us cyborgs?

13394097_1342518059097146_8854587051749124488_n

I am one of those people that firmly believes that implanted wearables are the future of health technology. Devices like cochlear implants have been around since the 1980s, contraceptive implants since the late 1990s and there are many other implanted medical devices that add quality to life — or even preserve life — from hip replacements to pacemakers.

However, outside of the medical world, implanted devices have been limited to a DIY movement called biohacking, a form of self-health monitoring which aims to take the expertise out of the hands of health professionals and into the hands of individuals. The spectrum ranges from the more benign exercise wearables to a range of DIY “body tools” and regulators, like implanted biomagnets that can used to pick up small items or an RFID chip to unlock your door or use the photocopier without a PIN code.

Cyborg Nest resets your orientation

Cyborg Nest recently launched their first commercial product, North Sense, a Bluetooth-enabled, thumbnail-sized embeddable piece of tech that attaches to your body with a couple piercings and vibrates every time it faces magnetic north. The Cyborg Nest website couches their wearables in an unfortunately “mystical” language which obscures the practical benefits of wearables in everyday life for many people. Let’s face it — there are other more appealing wearable devices than a compass for most people.

Once fitted, the company says, “you’re given back an ancient sense of orientation, deeply rooted in our traditions, spiritual life and history. You will own a unique new ability, and this will change you. In a few months, as a cyborg, you’ll be able to experience new memories, maps and life moments, created and influenced by a new layer—your North Sense.”

It all seems rather excessive for a mere compass that can’t even unlock a front door or connect to a map on an iPhone.

The FAQ section is also quite entertaining, as the creators answer the question of how it will change people:

This is not a physical change – this is a mind change. Processes take time, changing from person to person. Gradually, North Sense will become part of your existence. Your brain will learn how to filter the information, exactly as it’s filtering distractions right now as you’re reading this sentence.”

North Sense seems tame compared to predecessors like the work of Grindhouse wetware, a Pittsburgh startup that created Northstar V1, an implanted wearable device, pictured below, that gives wearers “the possibility of implanting technology in the body and paves the way for more advanced and functional augmentations.”

They aim to follow with Northstar Version 2, a “rechargeable device that adds gesture recognition and Bluetooth capabilities, enabling users to control electronic devices with hand movements, as well as add patterns or color variations to LED.”

145042778812182699_929857647097523_3743549189456536592_o

To be fair, there are different levels of comfort and acceptance when it comes to notions of transhumanism, cyborgs and implanted wearables and this is one of the few examples of a commercial wearable that goes beyond being simply “worn.”

You can pre-order North Sense now for $367, with the initial 2,000 units expected ship in September. Beyond that, you’ll have to wait for the next Biohacker Summit in Helsinki or liaise with Dangerous Things.
