London tests driverless shuttle service

Screen Shot 2017-04-08 at 1.25.09 PM

The UK’s Transport Research Laboratory is testing a driverless shuttle service in the London borough of Greenwich. The vehicle will ferry participants up and down a preset route. It can travel at speeds of up to 10 mph and is capable of seating four. The UK government is hoping these sorts of autonomous shuttles will play a big part in the country’s public transport, especially in areas not served by bus, train, or tram routes. http://www.theverge.com/2017/4/5/15188650/london-driverless-shuttle-service-pod-greenwich

More secure passwords

IdeaSpies IMG_0863

Instead of requiring a typed password or a fingerprint, new security software asks the user to speak or mouth a password directly at a device’s camera. Because this verification method is based on two things — lip motions and the correct password content — the system is doubly secure. https://futurism.com/lip-reading-computers-could-spell-the-end-of-passwords-as-we-know-them/

Car racing in Cuba

IMG_0700

The 1959 Cuban revolution triggered a trade embargo by the US. Car imports, besides a few Ladas and Moskvitches from the Soviet Union, were virtually impossible, forcing Cubans to make do with what they had. It’s the reason Cuba has so many Buicks, Chevys, Oldsmobiles and Fords from the Fifties. Cubans have become masters in repairing these cars and now they’re able to race them again, as they did before the revolution. http://www.topgear.com/car-news/adventures/road-havanas-street-racers#2

Help for pregnant women on transport

IdeaSpiesMAIN-BLP_CHP_230117SLUG_gOJPG (1)

Transport for London made life a lot easier for mums-to-be when it brought out its official “Baby on Board” badge, prompting Tube passengers to offer up their seats. However, commuters are often so engrossed in their smartphones that they don’t notice when a pregnant woman boards the train. Now London-based innovation firm 10x has developed an app called Babee on Board, which should help pregnant women get other commuters’ attention. http://www.mirror.co.uk/tech/babee-board-app-prompts-inconsiderate-9677387
