Bangladesh no longer safe for Indian insurgents BSF

first_imgBangladesh is no longer a safe haven for Indian insurgents, Border Security Force (BSF) Director General KK Sharma said on Friday.“They (Indian insurgents) are no longer active in Bangladesh. There were few training camps and hideouts of Indian insurgents and on our (BSF) information, the BGB (Border Guards of Bangladesh) has taken effective action and destroyed them,” Sharma said on the sidelines of a function at the BSF (Meghalaya Frontier) headquarters here.Moreover, he said if there was any definite knowledge of Indian insurgent camps on Bangladesh soil, action would be taken by the Bangladesh security forces to dismantle them.India has a 1,880 km border with Bangladesh along four states – Tripura (856 km), Assam (263 km), Meghalaya (443 km) and Mizoram (318 km).Expressing concern on the cattle smuggling along the India-Bangladesh border, Sharma said his troopers continued to make all efforts to thwart the crime.“You must realize that the populations on both sides of the border have been indulging in this activity for a very long time. Wherever we become strict, cattle smuggling is stopped in that area. They immediately shift to another area. So inspite of our best efforts, this has not completely stopped,” he said.Sharma said the BSF was in the process of covering the gaps along the India-Bangladesh border with technological solutions.“Very soon we will be installing an intruder detection alarm system to detect any intruder.last_img read more

New Zealand parliament passes tougher gun laws

first_imgNew Zealand parliament. AFP File Photo.New Zealand lawmakers have almost unanimously passed sweeping gun reforms, paving the way for a ban on military-style semi-automatic weapons to enter into force as soon as Friday.Lawmakers passed the legislation on final reading, less than a month after a gunman entered two mosques in Christchurch killing 50 people.During the debate Wednesday prime minister Jacinda Ardern told parliamentarians she “vividly” recalled the moment after the massacre when she, without consulting widely, decided the government had to act.Ardern, her voice filled with emotion, said it was during a briefing with the police commissioner when she was told about the “nature of the attack”, the weapons used and how they were notified but had been obtained legally.”I could not fathom how weapons that could cause such destruction, and large-scale death could have been obtained legally in this country. I could not fathom that,” she told lawmakers.She could not, she said, face the public or “the victims that had been left behind from this terror attack and tell them hand-on-heart that our system and our laws allow these guns to be available and that was okay. Because it was not.”The new rules amend permissive 1983 gun laws that had the subject of multiple reform attempts.The sole holdout against the legislation was the ACT Party, which has a single seat in the 120 seat parliament.The new rules are aimed at removing semi-automatic firearms from circulation through a buy-back scheme, prohibition and harsh prison sentences.A hand-in amnesty will be in place until 30 September 2019, but perpetrators will face between two and ten years in jail for breaking the laws.The new laws also prohibit “semi-automatic firearms, magazines, and parts that can be used to assemble prohibited firearms.”The law will now need royal approval, in practice a rubber stamp, which is expected to take place on Thursday, paving the way for the rules to enter into force the next day.The bill was first introduced on 1 April. Its passage in barely ten days has surprised even the most ardent gun control advocates.last_img read more

New omnidirectional wind turbine can capture wind energy on building rooftops

first_img Image: Katru Eco-Energy Citation: New omni-directional wind turbine can capture wind energy on building rooftops (2011, May 16) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-05-omni-directional-turbine-capture-energy-rooftops.html More information: via New Inventors (video) Sureshan, who has been in the business of designing mechanical systems (such as the first hybrid rooftop solar air-conditioning unit to go up on a commercial building in Queensland, Australia), for over 25 years, says he began working on the design after spending a lot of time working on building rooftops and noting how there was a lot of very nearly constant wind flying around, and thought there ought to be a way to capture it and put it to good use.After studying then current ideas for capturing wind, Sureshan hit on the idea of building an enclosure of sorts, or shroud, with airfoil blades for “walls” that allowed air to travel inside the chamber, but because of the angle, would force it to flow upwards inside the chamber, rather than allow it to pass through and out the opposite side; all that wind (or at least 87% of it) would then flow upwards towards the horizontal blades connected to the turbine, which would spin, producing electricity. The result is a wind turbine that has just one moving part, is much quieter than most other turbines and doesn’t harm birds because they are too large to fit through the sidewall blades. It looks pretty cool as well. This document is subject to copyright.

It is considered to be a vertical wind generator, as its main rotor shaft is arranged vertically, and while it’s not the first to incorporate such technology it is unique in that it has horizontal blades, and because it’s likely the first to have been tested by Honda Formula 1’s racing team to validate its unique ability to capture wind and hold onto it, rather than letting any escape out the opposite side. © 2010 PhysOrg.com Smart wind turbines can predict the wind The Katru Eco-Energy website indicates the IMPLUX wind turbines should be ready for sale by mid 2012. (PhysOrg.com) — Katru Eco-Energy, headed by founder and inventor, Varan Sureshan, has developed a new kind of wind turbine meant to capture the winds that fly in all directions atop big buildings, and unlike conventional devices, the IMPLUX, as it’s called, can capture wind from any direction as it stands; meaning without having to be repositioned or pointed. The IMPLUX achieves this feat by means of horizontal turbine blades that sit atop a vertical axis and are turned by wind that is pushed up through what Sureshan calls a “fluid dynamic gate.”last_img read more

In England provision of IVF treatment on the NHS

first_imgIn England, provision of IVF treatment on the NHS varies across the health trusts.The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends women under 40, who are struggling to conceive and who meet the right criteria, receive three full cycles of IVF treatment on the NHS to maximise their chances of getting pregnant.Each IVF cycle can cost anywhere between £1,300 and £6,000 and offers success rates of about 1 in 3 for women under 35.“It has been a very emotional journey over the last six years,” Deborah told BBC NI in an interview today.“You imagine what your child will be like … when that doesn’t happen then it can be very, very hard.“Our first cycle of IVF treatment didn’t result in a pregnancy so that was probably the most difficult.”In a response, the Department of Health said: “In 2014 the Department endorsed the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence clinical guidelines which recommends three full cycles of publicly funded IVF, subject to certain criteria.“However, implementation would have significant cost implications for the Health and Social Care Board, which must be carefully considered within the context of ongoing budget pressures and other competing HSC services requiring new investment in the years ahead.”Stephen Cross said that if their next treatment is unsuccessful, they will persevere with a fifth attempt.“The desire to create a child to hold and to care for, watch them go to school. It’s very difficult.“We were going from the elation of being pregnant and seeing the baby scan to, all of a sudden in a matter of weeks, it was gone.“As long as we have the resources we feel we will definitely continue on, but we can’t continue forever,” Mr Cross added.DERRY COUPLE DEBORAH AND STEPHEN CROSS WANT IVF EQUALITY IN NORTH was last modified: November 7th, 2016 by John2John2 Tags: “The onus at present is on Michelle O’Neill,” Mrs Cross said.“In Scotland they have fully implemented the NICE guidelines and they are now providing three publically funded cycles of treatment,” she said.“In Wales they provide two (cycles). I pay my taxes, as does Stephen, I don’t see any reason why we or those that face this journey shouldn’t be entitled to three publically funded cycles of treatment.“The unfairness, the inequity and the inequality in terms of that access to provision is unchallenged because it is such an emotive issue.” ShareTweet Derry IVF couple Deborah and Stephen Cross want answers from the Health MinisterA DERRY couple, who have spent nearly £20,000 on fertility treatment, havecalled on the Sinn Fein Health Minister Michelle O’Neill to address ‘IVF inequality’ in the North of Ireland.Deborah and Stephen Cross have been through four cycles of IVF treatment after being unable to conceive naturally.One cycle of IVF is provided to Health and Social Care (HSC) patients here, compared to three in Scotland.

The silver equities traded almost in lock step wit

first_img The silver equities traded almost in lock step with their golden brethren—and Nick Laird’s Intraday Silver Sentiment Index closed up 0.73%. Palladium didn’t do much until shortly before 11 a.m. in Zurich.  The tiny rally from there tacked a percent on the price, but the traders in New York cut that gain in half by the close—and palladium finished up another four bucks at $869.00 spot.  They’re certainly not letting this metal, and platinum, run away to the upside, which is what they both want to do. First Majestic is a mining company focused on silver production in México and is aggressively pursuing the development of its existing mineral property assets. The Company presently owns and operates five producing silver mines; the La Parrilla Silver Mine, the San Martin Silver Mine, the La Encantada Silver Mine, the La Guitarra Silver Mine, and the Del Toro Silver Mine. Production from these five mines is anticipated to be between 12.70 to 13.35 million ounces of pure silver or 14.85 to 15.60 million ounces of silver equivalents in 2014. Please visit our website for more information. It was a Groundhog Day in platinum After the obligatory sell-off at the New York open on Monday evening, the gold price headed a bit lower in Far East trading on their Tuesday—and didn’t rally until 2 p.m. Hong Kong time, an hour before the London open.  That rally, such as it was, got dealt with in the usual manner by a seller of last resort once the London p.m. gold “fix” was in.  The low came around noon EDT—and from there it rallied gently until 4 p.m.—and then traded flat from there. The high and low tick were recorded by the CME Group as $1,325.70 and $1,314.30 in the August contract. Gold finished the Tuesday trading session at $1,319.60 spot, down 40 cents from Monday’s close.  Net volume was pretty light at 96,000 contracts. Silver also had the same obligatory sell-off at the New York open on Monday night.  Silver traded lower until a rally began at the noon silver fix in London—and that rally got stepped on minutes after the 8:20 a.m. EDT Comex open.  The HFT boyz did the rest once the p.m. gold fix was done.  Silver’s low was also at noon in New York—and the subsequent rally made it back to Monday’s close minutes after 4 p.m. in electronic trading, before selling off a few pennies. The high and low were recorded as $21.245 and $20.955 in the September contract. Silver finished the day at $21.015 spot, down 3 cents from Monday.  Volume, net of July and August, was very robust at 44,500 contracts. The gold stocks gapped up a bit at the open—and stayed up until the HFT boyz took gold down at the London p.m. gold fix.  From that point the stocks slid into negative territory, with the low of the day coming minutes after 11:30 a.m. EDT.  The subsequent rally took the stocks back into positive territory, hitting their absolute highs around 2:30 p.m. in New York—and then traded sideways into the close.  The HUI finished up 1.49%. Platinum had a similar trading pattern on Tuesday as it did on Monday—and the price finished exactly on its Monday close as well—$1,491.00 spot—and a dollar off its Friday close.  What are the chances that these were free market events? As you can see, we’re still chopping sideways in price in both metals waiting for some sort of resolution to this this current overbought situation—and the now wildly bearish COT numbers, especially in silver.  I’m also aware that there may be a ‘black swan’ out there—and just as much as a precious metal shortage would end the price management scheme, the same can be said for some other potential “long tail” events that are unknown to us at the moment. Yesterday at the close of Comex trading, was the cut-off for Friday’s COT Report—and just looking at the five day reporting period on the charts above, I would guess that we’ll see more deterioration in the Commercial net short position in both gold and silver, but mostly in gold.  I’ll be happy to wrong, but that’s the way I’d bet ten bucks if forced to. As I type this paragraph, it’s about 45 minutes to the London open.  All four precious metals are up a bit from their respective closes on Tuesday.  Gold volume is pretty light, but higher than it was this time yesterday.  Silver volume is light as well—and lower that it was on Tuesday at this time.  The dollar index is flat. And as I prepared to send this out the door at 4:45 a.m. EDT, I note that not a lot has changed since I wrote the above paragraph a bit over two hours ago.  All four precious metals are hanging onto some or all of their gains from back then—and volumes are more or less what I expect at this time of day when there isn’t much going on from a price perspective.  The dollar index, which had been flat, dipped within spitting distance of the 80.00 level about forty minutes before the London open, but a buyer of last resort was there to save the day. I haven’t the foggiest idea as to what the rest of the Wednesday trading session will bring—and nothing will surprise me when I look at the gold chart later this morning. Enjoy your day—and I’ll see you here tomorrow. The dollar index closed late on Monday afternoon in New York at 80.22—and it rose to its 80.29 ‘high’ by 11:15 a.m. BST in London.  By noon in New York it was at its 80.15 ‘low’ by noon in New York.  It didn’t do much after that—and finished the Monday session at 80.17—down a whole 5 basis points. The CME’s Daily Delivery Report showed that 25 gold and 40 silver contracts were posted for delivery within the Comex-approved depositories on Thursday.  Jefferies was the issuer on all of them in both metals—and the stoppers were “all the usual suspects”—and the link to yesterday’s Issuers and Stoppers Report is here. There was another deposit into GLD yesterday.  This time an authorized participant added 67,372 troy ounces.  And as of 9:47 p.m. yesterday evening, there were no reported changes in SLV. Just as a matter of interest, since the rallies in both gold and silver began a bit over a month ago, there has been 424,653 troy ounces of gold added to GLD—and 10.31 million troy ounces of silver withdrawn from SLV.  There have been no deposits of silver at all—only withdrawals.  Ted Butler says that SLV is owned about 8 million ounces. The U.S. Mint had a sales report yesterday.  They sold 2,000 troy ounces of gold eagles—500 one-ounce 24K gold buffaloes—-and 130,000 silver eagles. The Royal Canadian Mint posted its Q1-2014 report on its website the other day—and here is what they had to say about bullion sales on pages 5 and 6—“Sales of Gold Maple Leaf (GML) coins declined 34.6% to 176,000 ounces compared to 269,000 ounces in the same period in 2013. Sales of Silver Maple Leaf (SML) coins increased 24.2% to 8.2 million ounces from 6.6 million ounces in the same period last year. The decline in GML sales reflects the lack of volatility in the gold price during the fourth quarter of 2013 and first quarter of 2014 as well as continuing activity in the gold bullion secondary market. The increase in SML sales reflects continued strong demand in North America, Europe and emerging markets such as Southeast Asia.“ “Refinery revenues were up slightly in the thirteen weeks to March 29, 2014. Gold rough deposits increased as the Mint competes successfully for a growing market share. This was partially offset by a decline in silver rough deposits due to increased competition in the silver refining sector. Also contributing to this growth was an increase in sales of 1 kg gold bars, which increased 525% to 18,099 bars, which offset a contraction in sales of 100 oz silver bars, which decreased 25% to 12,562 bars.“ Over at the Comex-approved depositories on Monday there was a decent amount of gold deposited, as HSBC USA took in 32,092 troy ounces.  None was reported shipped out.  The link to that activity is here. As is almost always the case, the activity in silver was far bigger.  Only 9,903 troy ounces were reported received, but a very decent 1,157,462 troy ounces were shipped out the door.  The link to that action is here. I have a far more reasonable number of stories today—and there should be at least a couple in here that you’ll find of interest. It was one of the largest three week Commitment of Trader changes in memory for gold, as more than 97,000 commercial contracts were sold on a $70 gold price rally since June 10. Most notable was that the raptors accounted for 80,000 contracts of the commercial selling and the technical funds 88,000 contracts of the buy side. Never have two distinct groups controlled so much of the positioning.   In COMEX silver futures, the 9,100 contract increase put the total commercial net short position at 52,000 contracts. This is highest level of commercial shorts in COMEX silver since December 18, 2012. I hope everyone knows that “highest” here means, in COT terms, most bearish. I must point out that in December 2012 silver was around $34; whereas today the price is near $21 and below the cost of production for many primary silver miners. – Silver analyst Ted Butler: 07 July 2014 Another day—and another non-for-profit seller in both gold and silver at the London p.m. gold fix—and it was a Groundhog Day in platinum.  Here are the 6-month charts for both gold and silver updated with Tuesday’s trading data.

A note from the editor For nine years Disability

first_imgA note from the editor:For nine years, Disability News Service has survived largely through the support of a small number of disability organisations – most of them user-led – that have subscribed to its weekly supply of news stories. That support has been incredibly valuable but is no longer enough to keep DNS financially viable. For this reason, please consider making a voluntary financial contribution to support its work and allow it to continue producing independent, carefully-researched news stories that focus on the lives and rights of disabled people and their organisations. Please do not contribute if you cannot afford to do so, and please remember that DNS is not a charity. It is run and owned by disabled journalist John Pring, and has been from its launch in April 2009. Thank you for anything you can do to support the work of DNS… The government’s trade bill – which will give ministers powers to give up disability rights protections in exchange for deals with other countries – proves disabled people were right to be concerned about the impact of Brexit, say campaigners.Disability and human rights organisations have written to trade secretary Liam Fox to express alarm about the bill, which gives ministers “delegated powers” to change legislation including the Equality Act in exchange for future trade deals.These trade deals are those previously agreed with other countries by the EU, and which have already been scrutinised by the UK parliament and the EU, but which could now be altered post-Brexit.The trade bill was passed by MPs this week but will now be debated in the House of Lords.The letter, sent by Liberty and signed by organisations including Disability Rights UK (DR UK), Disability Law Service, RNIB and the UK human rights consortium Just Fair, tells Fox that the bill as it stands includes “no safeguards to prevent ministers from using these new powers to remove rights granted by Parliament”.And it says the powers could be used, for example, to change parts of the Equality Act that require public transport to be accessible for disabled people.The letter adds: “We urge you to add a commitment to the text of the Bill to protect human rights and equality laws during the process of legislating for the UK’s exit from the EU.”The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has told Disability News Service that it shares the concerns in the Liberty letter.EHRC’s own briefing document on the bill warns that the delegated powers currently in the bill are “wide enough to allow a future reduction in the protection of fundamental rights”, such as on worker’s rights, equality and non-discrimination, inclusion of disabled people and access to social protection.Sue Bott (pictured), deputy chief executive of DR UK, said: “Ever since the referendum result, we have been concerned about the potential impact of Brexit on disabled people. “We think it is a matter that should concern us all, however people voted.”DR UK has drawn up a manifesto on what the disability rights sector should be seeking from a post-Brexit Britain, including the need to retain the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights. Bott said: “The trade bill, in allowing ministers to change laws like the Equality Act to gain international trade agreements, demonstrates that we were right to be worried and for this reason we agreed to be a signatory to the letter put together by Liberty. “Words and platitudes are not enough. We need our rights guaranteed in legislation, not watered down. “This bill demonstrates that we have to be vigilant in defending our hard-won rights.”Martha Spurrier, director of Liberty, said: “This trade bill turns crucial protections into bargaining chips.“With no consent from parliament or the public, ministers would be able to dispose of vital protections against discrimination and prevent equal access to jobs, education, transport and public services simply because another country thinks equality gets in the way of trade.“Human rights are not up for negotiation – MPs must press the government for a cast-iron legal commitment that they won’t be undermined in the name of trade.”The Department for International Trade (DIT) failed to comment on the call for an explicit commitment in the bill that it would not be used to undermine rights.Despite the concerns raised in the Liberty letter and by EHRC, a DIT spokesman claimed it was “wrong to state that the continuity powers in the trade bill can be used without parliamentary scrutiny, and we have made a clear commitment to parliamentary debate on any changes which may have to be made in order to transition these from EU to UK agreements”.He said the trade agreements had “already been scrutinised by parliament and the EU” and the government had made clear that it would keep these agreements “the same as much as possible and only make technical changes when needed”.He said DIT would respond to Liberty’s letter in due course.last_img read more

FDA grants clearance to Hologics assay for detection of common sexually transmitted

first_imgReviewed by Kate Anderton, B.Sc. (Editor)Jan 23 2019Hologic, Inc. announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted clearance for its Aptima® Mycoplasma genitalium assay, the first and only FDA-cleared test to detect this under-recognized but increasingly common sexually transmitted infection (STI). This newest Aptima assay joins a growing suite of market-leading tests offered by Hologic to help combat the rise of STIs in the U.S.Hologic’s first-in-category assay, cleared through the FDA’s De Novo request process, provides laboratories with a highly sensitive and specific molecular diagnostic method to identify infections and enable effective treatment.First discovered in the early 1980s, Mycoplasma genitalium (M. genitalium) was listed as an emerging public health threat by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2015. Current estimates indicate that M. genitalium may affect more than 15 percent of men and women in certain high-risk populations, and its prevalence is growing.3 Because of the lack of an FDA-cleared test until now, M. genitalium has often been misdiagnosed as other STIs and, in some cases, treated with the wrong antibiotics. This often leaves the underlying infection untreated, which can lead to increased transmission and recurrent infections.”Although Mycoplasma genitalium is typically more common than gonorrhea, there is very little public awareness of this rising sexually transmitted infection, which can cause serious and potentially devastating health problems,” said Damon Getman, Ph.D., senior principal research scientist and director of research at Hologic. “The introduction of the Aptima Mycoplasma genitalium assay gives healthcare professionals the opportunity to provide optimal care for their patients and reflects Hologic’s commitment to developing innovative solutions that address emerging public health threats.”In men, M. genitalium symptoms may include urethritis, the swelling and inflammation of the urethra. In women, M. genitalium has been linked to cervicitis, the swelling and inflammation of the cervix. If left untreated, infections can lead to infertility in women and increased risk of HIV acquisition and transmission. Patients infected with M. genitalium may be asymptomatic or experience symptoms similar to those associated with a chlamydial infection, so accurate diagnostic tests are critical to help healthcare professionals and their laboratory partners identify these bacterial infections and treat them appropriately. Research has shown as many as 50 percent of women and 42 percent of men with M. genitalium may have an antibiotic-resistant strain, further emphasizing the importance of early detection and regular screening.Related StoriesChronic inflammation removes motivation by reducing dopamine in the brainPipettes of the Future: Automation for AccelerationBioTek introduces new Scratch Assay Starter Kit”We are tremendously proud of the team of scientists and engineers who developed this assay,” said Tom West, Hologic’s division president, Diagnostic Solutions. “They exemplify Hologic’s dedication to help arm laboratories and healthcare professionals with superior diagnostic tools to identify harmful infections, and this FDA clearance represents another milestone in furthering that mission.”In published research, Hologic’s ribosomal RNA-based M. genitalium assay displayed greater sensitivity than lab-developed or CE-marked DNA-based tests . Hologic introduced the first FDA-cleared diagnostic test kit for STIs in the 1990s using its innovative RNA-based technology. Since then, Hologic has expanded its Aptima STI portfolio to include assays for chlamydia, gonorrhea, human papillomavirus (HPV), herpes simplex viruses (HSV 1&2), trichomonas, and Zika virus. The Aptima virology portfolio also includes quantitative assays for the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis B and C (HBV and HCV). All are available on Hologic’s fully-automated Panther® system. In 2017, the Aptima assays helped an estimated 40 million patients obtain fast, high-quality test results.Including the first IVD for the detection of Mycoplasma genitalium, Hologic’s Panther and Panther Fusion® system now offers 14 FDA-cleared or approved assays that detect more than 20 pathogens, making it the only high-throughput molecular diagnostic platform in the United States to combine comprehensive sexual health, cervical health, viral load, respiratory testing and open channel10 functionality on a fully automated system.Source: https://www.hologic.com/last_img read more

FLOURISH Userfocused driverless car project releases latest research findings

first_img Provided by University of Bristol Credit: University of Bristol FLOURISH TrialsThe members of the FLOURISH consortium have developed rigorous tests and trials designed to examine both the experience of older adults and the technical functionality of CAVs, with a focus on data and secure communications. The project conducts its user-focused trials using a simulator and a pod, building a comprehensive understanding of what is required to provide a mobility solution which is positively received by older adults.Specially designed and simulated scenarios enable the monitoring and post-trial evaluation of participants’ responses to a range of issues with a focus on HMI usability, evaluated using physiological, cognitive and attitudinal factors. The same scenarios are then replicated in the FLOURISH pod to validate the findings from the simulator trial in a real-world urban network setting.The FLOURISH car trials are conducted in Bristol and South Gloucestershire. The first car trial tested a connected vehicle network and associated technologies in a complex urban environment. Vehicle-to-Infrastructure communications between the autonomous vehicle and roadside units were examined. The trial assessed message delivery, the distance over which messages can be successfully sent (depending on the local environment) and the time between the sending and receipt of messages. It also tested success against the performance level of the transceivers, to develop an understanding of the impact of the communication equipment’s performance on the functionality of the communication service.Legal and insuranceFLOURISH has also released its Legal and Insurance Report today, which supports the findings of the user-focused trials that easy interaction with the vehicle is key to building trust. The report focuses on cyber security and data protection and makes a number of recommendations to help improve trust in the technology, including creating a comprehensive data map so people can understand how and where their data is shared.The Future for FLOURISHTracey concludes: “Future simulator and pod trials will focus on gaining further insights into what older adults need from CAVs, looking at additional HMI features, including voice recognition. Future car trials will build on the previous trials to further test the CAV communication network, cooperative services and associated technologies.” More information: To find out more about FLOURISH, see the project website: www.flourishmobility.com/about-flourish Citation: FLOURISH: User-focused driverless car project releases latest research findings (2018, October 24) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-10-flourish-user-focused-driverless-car-latest.html The outcomes from these trials are expected to provide the basis for the development of a future communications architecture for CAVs. Driverless cars are forcing cities to become smart The West-of-England-based FLOURISH driverless car research and development project has today released its mid-project trials report detailing its latest findings and what they mean for the future deployment of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) on the UK road network. Credit: FLOURISH Explore further The University of Bristol’s Professor Robert Piechocki said: “We are on the cusp of the biggest revolution on our roads since the advent of the internal combustion engine. Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAV) promise to deliver safe, efficient, inclusive and environmentally responsible transportation services. However future smart vehicles will require smart infrastructure to fulfil all the promised potentials. Roadside sensing (via lidar, radar, video etc.) will enhance road safety; virtual and dynamic signage and regulations communicated wirelessly will orchestrate traffic flow and resolve contention at intersections. The Flourish project attempts to provide the first glimpse of that future.”Tracey Poole, FLOURISH Project Manager, said: “Our trials explore what older adults need to be able to interact with CAVs with confidence. At a technical level, FLOURISH supports this aspiration by investigating how data can be used to optimise regional transport networks and how to ensure secure communications between autonomous vehicles and the surrounding transport infrastructure.”The early findings from this user research suggest that older adults prefer to use an uncluttered and highly intuitive Human-Machine Interface (HMI) to interact with CAVs. The results also indicate that trial participants’ trust in the CAV is optimised when they have the option of receiving journey management information from the vehicle in both an audio and visual form. These findings will help inform future HMI designs.Furthermore, the project’s investigations into the dependability of communications and message handling between autonomous vehicles and roadside assets have spanned signal coverage, reliability of transmission and cyber responsiveness.Under the trial conditions, the maximum distance for the successful communication of messages was 472 metres, with some non-line-of-sight coverage achieved. Transmission reliability, measured in terms of the awareness horizon, showed a rapid drop-off in the delivery of reliable communications beyond 120 metres. 95% of all messages were received within 778 milliseconds. The data gathered has provided a benchmark against which the performance of a wide range of Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) services can be evaluated. This document is subject to copyright.
