Fiat Chrysler Automobiles General Motors has dominated its American counterparts when it comes to offering in-car commerce. Its MyLink infotainment system has been adding various integrations over the last couple years, whether it’s placing reservations through Yelp or ordering a Domino’s pizza on the fly. Fiat Chrysler’s latest announcement along similar lines should help it keep up with the Joneses.Fiat Chrysler Automobiles announced on Monday that the next iteration of its Uconnect infotainment system will include something called Uconnect Market. This commerce platform is similar to GM’s Marketplace, in that it will allow a variety of third-party companies to offer connected buying services directly through the infotainment system. It was developed in partnership with Xevo, which has lent its expertise to GM, as well.When setting up a Uconnect Market account, owners will have the opportunity to add a credit card for use within the marketplace. That can then be used to authorize card-free fuel fill-ups at participating Shell stations, in addition to paying for parking through integration of the ParkWhiz service. People will also be able to book service appointments and check out offers on various services, and they can also book restaurant reservations through Yelp.This builds on news from earlier in the year. In April, FCA announced that it would rely on tech from Harman and Google for its upcoming connected-car services, which will allow for over-the-air updates and, when its EVs start rolling out, additional services catered to electric cars. It can also work with usage-based insurance and even peer-to-peer car sharing, so the sky’s the limit.Uconnect Market is expected to make its way to owners via over-the-air update in the second half of 2019. It will work with 2019 and 2020 model-year vehicles from Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram, so long as those vehicles pack both the connectivity itself and Uconnect’s 8.4-inch touchscreen.  Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid: First hybrid minivan wins on fuel economy 2019 Maserati Levante GTS: Heart of goldlast_img read more

Little bublcam places life in spherical perspective

first_img More information: www.kickstarter.com/projects/b … hnology-for-everyonebublcam.com/ © 2013 Phys.org (Phys.org) —Canada-based startup called Bubl Technology, founded in 2011, wants you to imagine being able to capture life in its bublcam, making, as it says, 360 degrees of your world available any time. The company has come up with prototypes of a little baseball-like gadget that is really four cameras arranged in a tetrahedral design, allowing a user to take photos and video. Sean Ramsey, founder and CEO, said the idea for the product was seeded some years ago, while he was working with a company in turn working with Google on a Street View project. Why not create a camera, he thought, to be capable of spherical footage for uses other than mapping? Why not use it for other things, such as panoramic photos? Explore further At the time of this writing, they have garnered $83,391 out of their $100,000 goal with 38 days to go. The target shipping date for the device, priced at over $400, is May next year.

He and other team members started thinking in terms of technology that could support a device that was small, portable,and affordable. For the last two years, the company’s focus has been on the end goal of a market ready spherical camera that captures 100 percent of the spherical range through panoramic photos and videos. The company’s hardware CTO, Dan Mills, explained: “We designed the camera in a tetrahedral [patent pending] orientation…there are no blind spots because each camera overlaps the adjoining camera.” The camera’s form factor is distinctive, as a baseball size device that is light and easy to carry around. Applications potentially, are many, including the use of the bublcam in-real estate, gaming and sports, as well as security and surveillance. The bublcam is capable of recording video at 30fps at 720p or 15fps at 1080p and exports MP4 format.For the casing, the team is using four solid aluminum die-cast structural rings. According to the company, however, the “true innovation of the bublcam is its software that allows a single, 4 quadrant multiplexed image to be stitched into a sphere. We utilize a heat mapped blending process in order to blend the final photos and videos. These are what we like to call digital bubls.”The team continues to work on the device to bring it to market and, at this stage, has fully functional working prototypes. The company has turned to Kickstarter to bring the device to market. “We have been working on bubl for the past two years and we’ve come a long way. But now we need your help,” said the campaign message. “Your support will allow us to initiate tooling, manufacturing and software development so we can make bublcam and our software available to you and the millions of people who have never before had a 360º camera option.” Ricoh shows off omnidirectional camera (w/ video)last_img read more

The Ruminant Genome Project reveals the secret lives of deer

The work was part of an overall project called, quite naturally, the Ruminant Genome Project. All three teams were made up of members from several institutions in China and a few other countries. All three groups have published their findings in the journal Science. Also, Dai Fei Elmer Ker and Yunzhi Peter Yang with the Chinese University of Hong Kong and Stanford University, respectively, have published a Perspective piece outlining the work by the three teams in the same journal issue.

Domesticated ruminants such as sheep and cows are important to humans. Others are important because of their unique physical characteristics. Deer antlers, for example, grow exceptionally quickly, and reindeer live in the Arctic without freezing or suffering depression due to long winter nights. In this new effort, all three teams sought to learn more about particular aspects of these unique mammals.In the first study, the researchers assembled the genomes of 44 ruminants covering all six members of the Ruminantia families. They created a phylogenetic tree for the group, which helped to clear up some of the mysteries in the family history. It also showed that the group as a whole suffered severe declines in population coinciding with humans migrating out of Africa.The work by the second team involved studying ruminant headgear—horns, antlers, pronghorns and ossicones. They found that despite their physical differences, the bony headgear shared many similarities. They also found that the reason deer antlers regenerate so quickly is because they exploit cancer-associated signaling paths. The deer also have tumor-suppressing genes that prevent tumors from growing in their antlers—information that could be useful in cancer research.

To find out, they studied the reindeer genome and discovered that reindeer have unique genes related to metabolizing vitamin D and circadian arrhythmicity, and also for female antler growth. And their unique digestive system helps them survive on limited plant growth. © 2019 Science X Networklast_img read more
