The Bayraktar TB-2

The TB-2 is a medium altitude long endurance unmanned combataerial vehicle (MALE UCAV), made in Turkey by Bayrack. (1/5)
#svagaiature #aviationlovers #UkraineInvasion #tech #Turkey #aviationdaily #AutonomousVehicles
The project began when the USA put an embargo on Turkey for UAV, due the fear of them being used to taget PKK groups inside and outside of the nation. Bayrack started developing a drone on the request of turkish government, and in 2014 the TB-12 made its maiden flight. (2/5)
A year later the weapon system had been already tested.
Many problems, regarding its components arose with time: the engine used, made in Austria, was only certified for civilian use; while parts of its imaging system and bomb rack was suspended... (3/5)

For vehicle data GDPR is just the beginning and stay tuned for the Data Governance Act, says German Brandenburg regional government in Q&A 1/5

#dataprivacy #dataprotection #connectedvehicles #autonomousvehicles
- Vehicle manufacturers have to observe GDPR when collecting and processing data. The customer's consent to the use of their data (e.g. on-board systems such as car apps) should always obtained when purchasing. 2/5
GDPR is a good foundation for ensuring data protection for data collected, processed and stored by modern vehicles. The legal requirements on "privacy by design" and "privacy by default" are important cornerstones to take into account when developing products. 3/5

🧵U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Comm. 2021 Annual Report to Congress

5 sections: competition (92 pages), economic relations(168), security(100), Taiwan(52), HK(52). 500+ pages, 1.5 hr video, 32 recommendations, w. 10 top recommendations.

Directly relevant, top recommendation related to Chinese VIE structured companies.

The commission not clear whether prohibition of VIE companies are limited to US listed or not. In the next 3 years most Chinese companies will be moving US listings to HK/mainland. /2
I myself have written extensively on VIE. It is not straightforward to say VIE is illegal in China, as VIE structured companies are now listed on China's own exchanges, folded into merge and acquisition regulations. /3

I will be live tweeting @Tesla AI Day Here. Personally looking at the data flow, latency, low power and performance of #Dojo and how it compares to @Google #TPU version 4 and other HPC systems and how it directly relate to #AutonomousVehicles #FSDBeta
Well as usual, Tesla is fashionably late and we are almost 18 mins past the start time. And the beat goes on...
#AIDay starts with a demo of FSD with the driver griping the steering wheel with his left hand in what looks to be the streets of California. #DojovsTPU #Dojo @Tesla Image

BREAKING: @ArgoAI and @Ford say they plan to launch self-driving vehicles (with safety drivers) on the @Lyft network beginning in Miami before the end of 2021. #Robotaxis #SelfDrivingCars #AutonomousVehicles @VWGroup
In a statement, @Ford, its associate @ArgoAI and #ridehailing service provider @Lyft say "the parties are now working to finalize agreements aiming to deploy at least 1,000 autonomous vehicles on the Lyft network, across multiple markets over the next five years."
As part of the deal, @Lyft will join @Ford and @VWGroup as an @ArgoAI shareholder. The #ridehailing service company will receive 2.5% of the common equity as part of the licensing and data access agreements to collaborate on the safe commercialization of #AutonomousVehicles.

In light of Tesla's so-called "Full Self-Driving" (an inaccurate, dangerous name) release and the anniversary of Elaine Herzberg being killed by a negligent Uber AV test and chaperone driver, I'm re-upping my #AV talk. I'll follow up with some highlights.
(The YouTube link is the raw video, and you can find the slides at When I'm able, I'll add the slides side-by-side with the video of the talk, but for now, this will have to do.)
In the large-scale MIT study on the "Moral Machine" of a simulated #AV trolley problem, they frame the hypothetical around "sudden brake failure" and an "unavoidable accident", which I argue is a scenario that ignores the purported safety promise of AV *and* bad language/framing

Last week @amazon acquired self-driving #startup @zoox for $1.2bn.

Zoox has been working on a building a special vehicle just for full #SelfDriving. The company raised ~$1bn in total and was previously valued at $3.2bn. /1

#AI #AutonomousVehicles…
2/ Whether Amazon will "rule the world" or not as an article in @Forbes says, it's yet to be clear where #AutonomousVehicles fit in Amazon's business. At the moment, Zoox is expected to continue working on their robotaxi vision.…
3/ However, Amazon will need to spend a lot more after the acquisition in order to bring #SelfDrivingCars to market.…

Since 2016 the French security services, the SGDSN, raised significant concerns over the growing dominance of CCP connected vehicles systems, especially those that will be paired to #5G networks with Chinese hardware. Now their fears are coming to pass:…
Background: Since 2014 #Huawei has been engaging several European car manufactures to explore rolling out Huawei GPS technology for both autonomous vehicles, connected vehicles and GPS assisted navigation.
In 2016 French car manufacturer Groupe PSA signed a deal with Huawei called "Push to Pass" strategy for 2016 - 2021. #Huawei technology would allow car manufacturers will be able to track, in real-time, the location of a vehicle, and retain the data. A major #DataProtection issue

@siddisimple @acorn This is not about a slowdown, it's about disruptive technologies and their impact. "Businesses designed to succeed in the 20th century are doomed to fail in the 21st." @davidsrose
Automotive sector will face massive disruption. #electricvehicles #AutonomousVehicles
@siddisimple @acorn @davidsrose See our paper on the future of personal mobility. It's already playing out like we thought it would. #disruption… @TKspeaks
@siddisimple @acorn @davidsrose @TKspeaks What you think a slowdown is actually the end of an era. An era of the scarcity mindset. An era of asymmetry of information. An era of inequity. Now, as @PeterDiamandis says, we are in the age of #abundance, marked by the 6Ds

Thank you, Matt. We disclose our holdings and trades every day. In the fourth quarter, soared while was cut in half. Both will be critical to the future of #autonomousvehicles. We knew what to do with that trade!
Correction: A self-imposed restriction, while I can’t buy a stock that is 10% or more of a portfolio. we don’t have to sell such a position. We can let it run. Given the stocks that were crushed last quarter, we sold some to fund our other high conviction stocks.
If we had not sold , it would have hit 15% of some of our portfolios.

What lessons can be drawn from the experiments on #AutonomousVehicles in #France?
Thread ⬇️⬇️⬇️ Image
1⃣ The institutional debate on autonomous #mobility focuses on the issues of #safety and industrial #competitiveness, to the detriment of other strategic issues related to mobility.
2⃣ However, the institutionalisation of experimental consortia organised around local authorities shows the willingness to move the cursor towards #mobility needs. Local authorities have a key role to play in linking #AutonomousVehicles and territorial mobility issues.

Kicking off #WalkBikePlaces with an infrastructure tour on @BlueBikesNOLA. Several under way now; I'm on the one that looks at public art, placemaking. #bikeNOLA
First stop: Jackson Square, National Historic Site, named for Andrew J. Led battle that saved NOLA in 1812 but owned enslaved people. Should his statue come down? #WalkBikePlaces
Beautiful murals! Families of Plessy and Ferguson reconciled with art in celebration. Studio BE right across the street--big studio space in covered warehouse. @BlueBikesNOLA station right here at park.

1/ Exciting to see an energy storage peaker plant. Also interesting that it's in Chandler, AZ where Waymo is planning to launch.
2/ AZ utilities forecast electricity sales growing at ~1% annually. #AutonomousVehicles that are #EV could increase incremental electricity demand. At 50% of VMT it could add ~5,000,000 MWh, which probably are not being included in current forecast. Image
Hard to see but the left bar for 2016 is ~7,000 MWh

@TashaARK 2/ Report says BEVs leaving PHEVs behind. It's a point that's not talked about enough. OEMs investing in hybrid for compliance may miss out.
