Detecting mobile phone use in the cab

first_imgUSA: Mobile asset monitoring technology company Wi-Tronix has launched a Mobile Phone Detection System which enables railways to monitor train crew compliance with their individual policies on the use of mobile devices in cabs.The Mobile Phone Detection System can identify powered and transmitting devices which are receiving an inbound call, placing an outbound call or communicating data. Custom algorithms ensure that the signal is originating from inside the cab rather than surrounding locations, and then apply rules based on the railway’s specific mobile phone policies to determine if a possible safety violation has occurred. A notification is then sent to a pre-determined list of approved people.last_img read more

Hartnell’s Big Game Leads Blue Jackets To 3-2 Victory Over Carolina

first_img Matt McCague Related Topics The CBJ matched up against the Carolina Hurricanes in Columbus at Nationwide Arena for the second time in the past week. The Jackets took the first battle, dealing out a 4-1 beating to the Hurricanes on Tuesday. The obvious goal would be to repeat that outcome.A rough 2nd period almost disrupted that game plan, but a stand out game for Scott Hartnell would ultimately save the game for Blue Jackets. The Jackets got off to a zippy start in the first period when the (recently called up) Finnish youngster, Markus Hannikainen, scored his first career NHL goal. Hannikainen found himself perfectly placed in the front of the net to catch and bury a rebound shot from Josh Anderson. William Karlsson was also in on the assist.You never forget your first @NHL goal! #CBJ pic.twitter.com/g7NEYYTRdW— Columbus Blue Jackets (@BlueJacketsNHL) January 21, 2017Nearly ten minutes later, the not so youngster, Scott Hartnell, extended the lead to 2. Hartnell brought the puck up the ice and sniped a long range bomb to fire the cannon. Dalton Prout and Scott Harrington both got their first assists of the season on the Hartnell goal. The second period wouldn’t be as friendly to the Jackets as the first. Carolina would outshoot the Jackets 9-2 and ultimately outscore them 2-0. As pretty as the first period was for the CBJ, the second was equally as ugly. Shades of Blue Jackets yesteryear emerged, but that’s not the identity of this years rejuvenated CBJ squad. As we’ve quickly learned this season, safe is indeed death. The Jackets let their new identity shine, doing what this squad has done best midway through the season, find a way to win games. Star of game, Scott Hartnell came to the rescue midway into a scoreless third period. Sam Gagner worked his way through traffic and dished the puck across the ice to find Hartnell who banged home what would go on to be the game winner.WHAT a play. #CBJ pic.twitter.com/v1vHVUpVTP— Columbus Blue Jackets (@BlueJacketsNHL) January 22, 2017Bobrovsky would hold off the Hurricanes late to get the win. Bob had 35 saves for another impressive performance. Hugs all around for the Jackets Saturday on a very appropriate National Hug Day. The win Saturday moves the Jackets to 31-10-4 on the season. Saturday’s game rounded out a three game home stand for the CBJ going 2-1. The Jackets hit the road to face off against the Ottawa Senators Sunday, followed by two more road games before moving into the All-Star break. last_img read more

Samsung already poems about 6G. The new generation of networks…

first_imgFifth-generation mobile networks are being launched in the Czech Republic and around the world, so logically they have to think about what will come after them. The International Telecommunication Union should describe its vision of 6G next year, Samsung is already writing poems about it now.Koreans expect further jump from all features from 6G. Theoretical throughput should reach up to 1 Tb / s, twenty times today’s values. Latency is said to shift by an order of magnitude lower to 100 μs. Spectral and energy efficiency will double. Network reliability and capacity will increase tenfold.However, in order to achieve such values, it will be necessary to “tame” terahertz bands that have sufficient width. This requires completely new electronics and more complex antennas from different metamaterials. In addition, the signal will have to be experimented with so that it is not absorbed by oxygen and water molecules. The network of transmitters is becoming even thicker.According to Samsung, this will bring a number of benefits, but we can rather smile at it today. Higher speeds and lower latencies are designed to help next-generation virtual and augmented realities work with up to 16K images. It is said that detailed 3D holograms will normally be used. Thanks to a dense network of transmitters with direct visibility, navigation up to less than 1 cm will also be more precise.When should potential 6G networks come? Samsung estimates that if development goes smoothly, the first commercial use will be between 2028 and 2030.last_img read more
