不择手段是豪杰,不改初衷真英雄; 坏人猖獗是因为好人沉默,沉默也是一种作恶; 提一口气,点一盏灯,有灯就有人。只有见惯了世间善恶,人世冷暖,充分的【入世】,最后才能在茫茫世界里找到自己这一叶孤舟,才能实现【道】的终极目标——【出世】。何安下是以极其真挚的态度来对待这个世界的,就是不管遇到什么挫折,他的赤子之心都从未改变。

Self-Driving Cars and the Economy of Fuel by Beth Kelly

Self-Driving Cars and the Economy of Fuel

By Beth Kelly

Internet search leader Google is testing its self-driving automobiles on public roads this summer. This latest phase of testing follows previous successful trials, further indicating the fact that the reality of driverless cars is coming ever-closer to fruition. It’s only a matter of time before these autonomously operating vehicles begin to displace “traditional” human-directed cars – a development that will have serious repercussions across the whole of society.

There have been plenty of features introduced over the years to make driving a car easier, like power steering and cruise control, but Google’s driverless cars are a whole new ballgame. The on-board computer will handle accelerating, braking, steering, lane positioning and all other functions without human intervention, turning the “driver” into little more than a glorified babysitter. These awesome capabilities are made possible by the fusion of sophisticated sensors and cameras with heavy-duty computing machinery to process the incoming data and determine the correct action for the vehicle to take at all times. Indeed, it’s fair to say that this new type of automobile will be more tech gadget than horseless carriage.
