All the athletes had to struggle with heavy head wind and Weir, who ran a controlled race throughout, was very pleased with his improved run. “I am very pleased with my effort today (Saturday) knowing that I have improved on my time following my opener at Camperdown Classics. I am now getting over my injury and I am hoping to remain fit for the remainder of the season as I am looking forward to a good year,” said Weir.

Apple, Google call on California to change self-driving tests

first_imgIT Trends of the Future That Are Worth Paying A… 5 Ways IoT can Help to Reduce Automatic Vehicle… David Curry Related Posts For Self-Driving Systems, Infrastructure and In…center_img Apple, Tesla, Google and Uber have all asked for specific changes to California’s self-driving test policy. The letters come a few weeks before the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) reviews new regulation proposals.The latest company to receive a self-driving permit, Apple, has called on the DMV to redefine “disengagement” and ensure that reports are clearer. The iPhone maker specifically wants disengagement reports to include situations where the driver had to take over to prevent minor traffic violations. This could include disobeying traffic lights, failing to signal, and failure to yield right-of-way in California.See Also: California legalizes self-driving cars on public roadsApple also wants to reduce the amount of pointless disengagements, like a server error or if on a construction site. It believes that if the changes are implemented, it will lead to more accurate public reporting.Even though Apple has a permit to test self-driving vehicles, it has still yet to clock a mile.Google’s self-driving division, Waymo, which has clocked millions of autonomous miles, has called for automakers to not be held responsible for crashes that aren’t the vehicles fault. In an autonomous world, it is hard to see how the vehicle would not be at fault for a crash, but it could be a move to avoid legal trouble in the future.Both Apple and Tesla have asked for the California DMV to allow the testing of heavier vehicles, according to Reuters. Tesla has already teased a semi-truck as the next car on the roadmap, to be previewed sometime this year. Apple hasn’t teased anything, but the call does suggest it is working on multiple types of vehicle.Uber, which has been at odds with the DMV before over its permit system, called for customers to be allowed into self-driving cars with a human driver onboard. The ride-hailing giant is already testing this service in Pennsylvania and Arizona.

Deadline Dikshit sets latest target

first_imgNetizens in the cyber world lovingly, and often grudgingly, call her “Missed Deadline Dikshit”. And Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit couldn’t save the blushes when she announced on Sunday another deadline to finish the pending projects in the controversy- ridden Games Village.It was a classic “two minutes to midnight” deadline for the Games beginning on October 3.This also happened on a day when an exasperated Union Home Ministry asked the Delhi Police not to wait for the Organising Committee (OC) to hand over the venues to them and instead start deploying forces at the earliest.Dikshit toured the Village on Sunday morning and announced a “new” date to complete the unfinished work. “All projects are on track and I am hopeful that the flats will be ready by Wednesday,” Dikshit said after surveying the Village for over 90 minutes.The chief minister had hoped to hand over at least 600 flats to the OC by Sunday evening, but pending work forced her to set another deadline.Her “deadline hopping” began about three months ago when the government missed the initial July 31 target to complete all Games- related work. The deadline was shifted to August 31, which was missed and Dikshit said work could continue till mid- September.”We have to give everything (all venues) by October 3 in any case.If it doesn’t rain, we will do the job by September 10 to September 15,” Dikshit said earlier this month. That was missed too.The agencies haven’t just missed the construction deadlines, but maintenance and cleaning targets went for a six over the past few weeks. When it came to removing the construction debris, the agencies set an August 10 deadline. This was missed and later extended to August 31. It was further extended later.advertisementThe Delhi Police have been at the receiving end of these missed deadlines. Construction at the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium, where the authorities have missed five deadlines on handing over the complex to the police, has annoyed them.Union home secretary G. K. Pillai on Sunday reviewed the security scenario: “Don’t wait for the OC to hand over the venues to you. The work is still on but don’t compromise on security.Start deploying forces and tighten security at the venues.Have a standby arrangement,” a senior police officer summed up Pillai’s direction to Delhi Police.
