Shortly, users will be able to test space from the internet Starlink. Now the company SpaceX sends out emails inviting you to take part in beta testing, and the app store has an official application of the service for its iOS platform.
Beta Test, participants can expect the internet connection speeds to be between 50 and 150 Megabits per second, level of around 20 to 40 milliseconds.
The company also warns that for some time, there may be no satellite connection at all, which will explain the small number of satellites being used.
It is pointed out that by the summer SpaceX plans to reduce internet connection delays from 16 to 19 milliseconds, and at the same time, the beta test itself will be paid for and will require a special ground terminal, an antenna, and a Wi-Fi router.
The cost of this equipment is roughly $499 and a monthly subscription will be required with the price of around $99.
NASA announced that the manned SpaceX Crew Dragon will go to the ISS on November 14.
The launch was to take place at the end of October, but it was canceled beforehand due to reasons found on another mission involving Falcon nine.
Currently, those previous failure causes have been fixed. And now a new launch date has been set, which should be the first launch of the regular crew on flights to and from the ISS.
The ship will launch not three but four astronauts which will increase the number of shift crews on the ISS from six to seven people.
Tesla has begun beta testing a full-fledged autopilot program using for this the most accurate current owners of the electric cars.
But over time, full self-driving betas will be available to more and more drivers. And by the end of this year, it’s promised to release the final version of the autopilot to all owners of Tesla.
Currently, already in beta a version of the car that can independently pass all kinds of intersections turn past pedestrians on the crosswalks and bypass parked cars and other obstacles in its path.
Autopilot has been taught to distinguish between traffic light signals and respond to stop signs.
This system makes sure that the driver keeps his hands on the steering wheel at all times and can correct small errors that autopilot may make driving maneuvers currently serve for the training of the neural network.
And if a person does not follow the rules and takes their hands off the steering wheel, the car will just go and park.
Also, according to Elon Musk, he recently announced that the next killer product of Tesla will not be a cyber truck with a solar roof.
Although the technology of the product Tesla announced back in 2016. So far the project has experienced various difficulties associated with both the installation and with a wire fire within the roof.
Now the company has announced that it has improved this technology to reduce the price of the product and is ready for large scale implementation.
According to Ilan, these routes will be like printers that print money as they can save owners up to $500 per year on electricity.
In China, they are trying to solve the problem of charging electric cars with a record fast battery replacement.
The country has started to have replacement stations with speeds ranging from 30 seconds up to three minutes.
The technology is expensive, which hinders the growth of the stations, but companies will rely on government subsidy programs to help build 1000s of these stations throughout the country and abroad.
So far, researchers at the University of Bristol decided to use their robotic to create a 3d map of the level of radioactive contamination in the Chernobyl exclusion zone radiometric and geophysical work was carried out on the property of the most affected by the radiation red forest and disposal sites of radioactive waste.
But Lezlie and Peria Cofco the robot was inserted and removed with the help of aerial drones. In other news around the spot, it finally received the long-promised robot arm which with the help of it will be able to open doors, drawers, turn handles and possibly work with some other types of tools.
Besides, the robot has been taught to stand up and recharge itself. In theory, this means a noticeable increase in its capabilities and range. The price of the robot is still unknown however it will appear on sale in 2021.
The work of the autopilot company has demonstrated on a tugboat Samsung t eight, conducting its monitoring from the shore Control Center at a distance of 241 kilometers from the tugboat.
The company demonstrated both autonomous movements of the tugboat and remote control movements.
The onboard collision avoidance system was also tested. The 38-meter long tugboat with a gross tonnage of 300 tons, was safely able to make a voyage of nine kilometers without any human intervention.
All this time, the autonomous navigation system kept the tugboat on the given route, identifying potential dangers and correcting when needed.
British military helicopters AWS 159 Wildcats received detachable external sensors in the form of a partially autonomous drone from Callen lens, the Italian company Leonardo has integrated a significant part of the routine tasks related to the drone control into the Wildcat mission system with an intelligent pilot support system.
Pilots can now control the vehicle directly set flight control points, or work with the drone payload. It should be noted that also of the new and old manned vehicles with drones and swarms of drones, it’s now considered one of the most promising areas of military equipment development.
Microsoft developers presented an unexpected project a smart fabric capable of recognizing food, drinks, and other objects on the table to the touch.
The fabric uses a combination of capacitive grid electrodes and machine learning to measure the material and shape of each object.
The technology is not yet perfect and doesn’t know how to recognize, for example, metal objects.
But in the future, scientists hope to create a smart tablecloth that will help chefs by changing the weight and volume of food in addition to counting the color of the food eaten.
MIT developed a robotic boat for two passengers for Amsterdam residence. Rowboat two is about two meters long and is equipped with four propellers which allow it to move in any direction.
The Robot uses LIDAR, GPS, and inertial sensors to help the boat navigate and individual robots can be assembled into larger boats.
The current version of the boat moves autonomously through city channels for up to three hours collecting data and returning to where it sailed from.
The new Hummer EV from GMC can adjust the height of the suspension itself and bypass any obstacle moving like a crab.
Three 1000 horsepower electric motors accelerate the car from zero to 95 kilometers an hour, and about three seconds.
The new crab walk mode allows the car to turn all four wheels and move diagonally to overcome narrow rocky sections of the road.
Also, the new Hummer can lift the suspension of the car by 15 centimeters to overcome large obstacles.
Google’s artificial intelligence is used to track and identify people on the border of the United States and Mexico.
The military itself does not disclose the details of the contract.
But given that Google is actively promoting a powerful cloud-based image recognition technology through its vision AI product, these features will be extremely useful to the government, which plans to install camera towers along the border regions.
