NEXCOM’s Latest Vehicle Mount Computer Manages Volatility In Mining Logistics Services

NEXCOM’s new, all-in-one vehicle mount computer, optimizes mining logistics service and manages volatile working conditions in tank trucks. With orders, vehicle, traffic and weather information gathered and shared in real-time among drivers and dispatchers; the mining logistics service delivers required material to mining sites in an efficient, safe and eco-friendly manner.

Equipped with a total tracking system, this vehicle mount computer travels alongside drivers uphill and downhill in the Appalachian Mountains to transport water, sand and chemicals to mining sites. The total tracking system in the vehicle cabin allows drivers to communicate with dispatchers, map the shortest and quickest route, retrieve new assignments, print shipping documents, check vehicle status and tank volume, monitor materials in real-time to prevent spills and receive weather alerts.

Concurrently, the shared information enables dispatchers to track vehicle and freight location, assign new orders to appropriate drivers, keep up-to-date order reports, remotely regulate traffic at mining sites, detect anomalies in vehicle maneuvers, and offer assistance in vehicle accidents. Moreover, the total tracking system integrates with dashboard and cabin cameras for traffic and driver monitoring as well as streams live videos to the dispatch center as needed.

With so much information, the total tracking system optimizes the mining logistics service by reducing fuel consumption and shortening transportation time. The system increases safety by encouraging traffic regulation compliance with daily operations monitoring, replaces onsite flagmen with remotely managed traffic signal systems, and prepare drivers for different weather conditions at different altitudes. Additionaly, with better monitoring, the no-spill policy can effectively be enforced to protect the environment.

Combing NEXCOM’s all-in-one vehicle mount computer and the Red Dog Logistics software makes the total tracking system possible. The VMC 3000, a ruggedized vehicle mount computer, features a 10.4″ touch screen, GPS, Wi-Fi and 3G connection as well as abundant I/O interfaces. Highly praised by Red Dog Logistics, its heavy-duty design not only lays the solid cornerstone for vehicle data logging, location-based functions, communication, and video storage, but it also keeps the cabin neat and functional when working in conjunction with peripherals, such as thermal printer, cameras, tank measure sensor, and RFID reader for driver login.

Integrating the Red Dog Logistics software, which consists of a user interface, web-based backend server and relational database with the data provided by the VMC 3000; provides aggregate reports and business insights that help mining logistics services drive into higher gears.

Long life, no cooling fans: Intel’s 4.5W Core processors could blur the PC/tablet line

Windows tablets hold within them an implicit promise: To deliver the full Windows 8 experience in a svelte tablet form factor.

Unfortunately, the ambitions of Microsoft and its partners have thus far exceeded reality, largely due to processor power issues. Even the lowest of low-wattage Ultrabook chips simply sip too much juice, forcing manufacturers to house their hybrids in cases full of fans—a compromise that has left Windows tablets and convertibles thicker and louder than the ARM-based tablet competition.

No more. Intel announced Tuesday that new Core Y-series Haswell processors capable of fitting in thin, completely fanless designs are inbound “in the coming months.”

While Intel had previously announced its Core Y-series chips would run at a scenario design point—basically, an Intel metric for the power draw during sustained workloads—of 6 watts, the newly announced processors will dip all the way down to 4.5W SDP. (6W variants will also be available.) That 1.5-watt difference between the two is the difference between needing additional cooling and a potentially fanless design, according to Intel

Tablets and hybrid PCs with the 4.5-watt Core chips will offer more than nine hours of battery life on active usage, Intel spokesman Dan Snyder said via email.

Don’t expect to see crazy performance from such low-powered Haswell processors, however.

While the new chips will be able to boost to higher performance for short periods thanks to their 11-watt thermal design power rating—a “worst-case” power metric that measures the maximum energy used during heavy workloads—a large part of Intel’s ability to bring the cooling and power requirements down so far lies in underclocking the processor. Sustained boosting above 4.5W would strain the cooling capabilities of a fanless chassis.

Even still, a low-powered Haswell processor will blow the pants off both ARM chips andIntel’s own Atom CPUs, performance-wise, bringing true Ultrabook-like chops to a truly tablet-style design.

“I think there is a real market need for a fanless tablet or 2-in-1 with PC-level performance,” says Patrick Moorhead, president and principal analyst at Moor Insights and Strategy. “This is exactly where Intel’s new 4.5-watt [chip] comes into play… Even though the 4.5-watt Haswell will be clocked lower than the 6-watt version announced at Computex, it will have significantly higher performance than Bay Trail.”

While Moorhead expects production of low-watt chips to ramp up sometime in 2014, Intel says the first round of energy-sipping Y-series processors will be produced in limited quantities. It’d be a shock if those chips failed to show up in a Haswell refresh of Microsoft’s Surface Pro tablet.

How Apollo 11′s 1.024MHz guidance computer did a lot with very little

 

early 44 years ago computer hardware was in an entirely different place than it is now. The levels of performance don’t even fit on the same scale. The anniversary of the Apollo 11moon landing is upon us, and those brave space pioneers got by without a 3GHz multi-core CPU. The guidance computer used on the Apollo 11 mission ran at only 1.024 MHz.

The moon landing was the height of technological achievement at the time, and some of the rocket technology is still relevant today. That computer, though, has been left in the dust. In fact, it was well and truly obsolete a few years after the landing.

The Intel 8086 came about roughly ten years after the Apollo landing, marking the beginning of x86. Apollo 11’s computer had 4 registers — essentially slots for holding numeric values. The 8086 boosted that to eight 16-bit registers.

The IBM PC XT ran the next version of that chip, the famous 8088. This computer ran at 4.077MHz, which sounds incredibly slow by today’s standards, but is still four times faster than the Apollo 11computer. The XT also packed in eight times the memory used on Apollo 11.

The Apollo 11 guidance computer actually had some impressive software features for a system that didn’t even run a graphical interface. It could multitask up to 8 different operations, but it didn’t work the way we think of multitasking. Today’s operations use preemptive multitasking that allows the OS to distribute computing resources as needed. On Apollo 11, programs were in charge and had to give control back to the OS periodically. A kind of virtual machine was used to allow developers to mix hardware-level instructions with virtual machine commands within the same assembler code.

Inputting commands required translating the English words into “verb noun pairs,” which could be input as numbers. There was a handy sign in the cabin as a reminder. To top it all off, none of the computer’s systems were software upgradeable. All the code was stored in read-only memory. Several years after Apollo 11, Apollo 14 was forced to manually input the code to patch a system malfunction — it took 90 minutes just to type it in.

Maybe your computer is a little sluggish, and your smartphone is a couple years old, but you have it better than those astronauts

Talk Nokia Lumia Excellence 1020

HELSINKI – 41 megapixel camera is a major advantage presented by Lumia 1020. But Nokia claims that there are many other advantages to selling this smartphone.

Head of Marketing and Sales of Nokia in North America Matt Rothschild, said the camera is not the only advantage Lumia 1020. Hardware elements, including the AMOLED screen to accessories Camera Grip and shutter button, says Rothschild, a smartphone is another advantage.

“On the whole, this is what we refer to as the volume of product.’s (Lumia 1020) is very beautiful to grip, has a good balance, and well designed.’s What we call a consideration” Rothschild said, as quoted from Venture Beat, Monday (15/07/2013).

As for the camera, said Rothschild, Lumia 1020 has a very broad target audience, ranging from the professional to make photography only as a hobby.

“But the most important thing for us is that when we talk to customers, they tell us that they want to have a good picture. Everyone knows that smartphones now include photographic device that can be carried anywhere, so this is the core thing that all people are looking for,” he concluded.

Sony Xperia smartphones Z

The Water Proofing

Sony Xperia Z’s lips at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2013 in Las Vegas in early January. Because this phone has the security features that is waterproof.

U3-436-SonySmartphone dimensions 139 x 71 x 7.9 mm screen has 5 ˝. With such a wide screen, the display explores the experience is more freely, though it would be difficult to operate with one hand. Smartphone flat box shape does look pretty, it’s just feels less comfortable grip. This smartphone is also layered glass on each side. Those who would like smartphones bodied clean, need frequent cleaning traces of the hand attached to the glass. Dressings glass also makes it feel a little slippery when held.

The placement of the power button and the volume of the right middle, making it easy to reach buttons when holding, either left or right-handed. Micro-USB port, a micro-SIM, microSD, headset jack and has a special cover so that water does not enter into these holes.

Sony Xperia Z screen uses the Bravia Engine 2. 1080 × 1920 pixel image displays sharp colors. When used under strong light, the screen can still display a good image. This screen does not use IPS panels, so that the sharpness of the picture is only valid when it is in plain sight. Once tilted, the color looks a little foggy. The screen has wet finger tracking, so it can still operate even if your fingers wet. But, when in the water, he still does not respond to touch.

One more thing to note is hot. When using a smartphone intensive, especially when connected to the internet, so it feels very hot. Although the heat was tolerable hand, the heat is quite disturbing because the effect on Li-ion 2300mAh battery that is growing quickly depleted. This substantial battery can last all day with moderate internet usage. In addition, the Sony Xperia Z also has stamina mode that turns off the internet when the smartphone is not active. Internet will be active again after Sony Xperia Z used.

This smartphone’s camera using RS 13 megapixel Exmor sensor, the resulting image is quite good. Sony Xperia Z adds many exciting features, such as burst and HDR function. There are also picture effects such as panoramic images and a variety of filters to be creative with the pictures taken. One favorite is the sketch effect. The camera is also capable of recording HD quality video.

Audio business, Sony presents the expiration monaural speaker and stereo sound with headphones. The resulting sound is quite crisp innate headphones in ears, though not too special. While the default mono speakers generate sound quite comfortable to hear. In tests conducted PCplus, Sony Xperia Z can still operate despite being dipped into the water. Turn on the music, until a call. It’s just the sound of the speakers so there selantang usually after dyed. Wait three hours, the speakers back to normal.

How Smart Dust Could Be Used To Monitor Human Thought

A few years ago a team of researchers from Brown University made headlines after they successfully demonstrated how a paralyzed woman who had lost the use of her arms and legs could control a robotic arm using her brainwaves. In a video, Cathy Hutchinson imagines drinking a cup of coffee, and the robotic arm brings the cup to her lips.

The scene is amazing, but also a little disturbing. Hutchinson is connected to the robotic arm through a rod-like “pedestal” driven into her skull. At one end of the pedestal, a bundle of gold wires is attached to a tiny array of microelectrodes that is implanted in the primary motor cortex of Hutchison’s brain. This sensor, which is about the size of a baby aspirin, records her neural activity. At the other end of the pedestal is an external cable that transmits neural data to a nearby computer, which translates the signals into code that guides the robotic arm.

This method, known as BrainGate, pretty much defined state-of-the-art brain-computer interfaces at the end of the last decade. If the idea of a rod-through-the-head computer interface makes you cringe, you are not alone.

For some time, a small team of researchers at UC Berkeley has been working on plans for a less invasive, wireless monitoring system. Earlier this month, they released a draft paper: “Neural Dust: An Ultrasonic, Low Power Solution for Chronic Brain-Machine Interfaces.”

Dongjin Seo, a graduate student in UC Berkeley’s electrical engineering and computer science department, authored the paper under the supervision of senior faculty members, including Michel Maharbiz who has famously created cyborg beetles for the US Defense Department.

Seo said the researchers’ goal is to build an implantable system that is ultra-miniature, extremely compliant, and scalable to be viable for a lifetime, for brain-machine interfaces. “With neural dust, due to its extreme scalability, this framework can be applied for Obama’s BRAIN initiative, which necessitates large-scale, parallel, and real-time monitoring of neurons,” Seo explained.

The Berkeley researchers propose to sprinkle the brain with tiny, dust-sized, wireless sensors. This would reduce the risk of infection from wiring up scores of sensors placed throughout the brain and limit the trauma to one initial operation. During that operation, the skull would be opened, and sensors would be inserted into the brain. At the same time a separate transceiver would be placed directly under the skull but above the brain. The transceiver would communicate with the sensors via ultrasound.

Another battery-powered transceiver outside the skull would receive data transmissions from the chip inside the skull and supply wireless power to it.  As the paper notes, this type of power transfer is already used in a variety of medical applications, including cochlear implants. Seo said the amount of power being proposed is within FDA and IEEE guidelines.

The idea of neural dust immediately sparked the imagination of futurists after the paper was published on arXiv.org on July 8. “The brilliance of this system is that it could potentially allow scientists to see what’s going on with thousands, tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of neurons inside the brain at once,” wrote Ramez Naam, a senior associate at the Foresight Institute and author of “More Than Human: Embracing the promise of biological enhancement.”

But would neural dust have practical use for the growing industry of mind-controlled computer games and brain training apps? Jon Cowan, founder ofNeuroTek, is dubious. NeuroTek’s Peak Achievement Training has been used at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, as well as at other Olympic centers from China to Norway.

“[Neural dust] doesn’t have much practical promise because of the surgery it would require,” Cowan said. “I don’t think they’ll find too many people that would volunteer for it.” Cowan noted existing ways for measuring brainwaves that rely on external sensors may be crude, but they’re effective enough for today’s applications.

“We really believe this is a practical system and, more importantly, we think this is potentially a powerful framework for achieving what Obama has announced,” Seo said. Still, he pointed out that the paper is a draft. “It’s a concept paper,” he said. “It’s a theoretical study of what we think is possible in the realm of neural recording.”

By publishing the paper on arXiv.org, an online collection of preprints of scientific work, the team is hoping to spur involvement and feedback from scientists in different fields. Lots of challenges remain to be overcome before neural dust will be ready for live testing.

Motherboard ECS A55F2- M3

Now with FM2

If you remember, the elder brother of ECS-M3 PCplus A55F2 test this time PCplus ever fit in issue 412. Old brother-M3 ECS A55F2 it is ECS A55F-M3 alias minus the number 2 on the naming. At that time, ECS A55F-M3 comes with support for AMD socket FM1 APU with. Now, ECS A55F2-M3 comes with support for the latest generation AMD APU, Trinity, who took FM2 socket.

u6-435-ecsSelain will support newer AMD APU, ECS-M3 A55F2 also added to the display for digital output. ECS A55F-M3 only offer analog outputs in the form of D-Sub 15pin. Digital outputs are added to this is the HDMI.

In terms of main memory slots and expansion slots, micro ATX motherboard is still giving two slots and three slots. Expansion slot is paired ECS PCIExpress 2.0 x16, PCI-Express 2.0 x1, and PCI. Unfortunately, the use of dual slot graphics card, like his brother, will close the slot PCI-Express 2.0 x1 and could complicate the use of a SATA port.

What about the additional facilities? ECS-M3 A55F2 rely more on the facilities offered by the AMD A55 chipset it uses. Therefore, there is no SATA 6Gbps and USB 3.0. Similarly, eSATA and FireWire. Both of these interfaces are not added to the ECS.

For you who like tinkering with computers, this motherboard does provide a number of options for you to adjust the BIOS setup, but there are a number of common options for tweaking is not offered by ECS. There is also no indicator POST process and switch / easy to clear CMOS button on the rear panel. The good, easy way to clear CMOS utilizing the Page Up key on the keyboard still included.

For business solid capacitors, ECS-M3 A55F2 use. Unfortunately, the use of only on the assessed critical. For others, ECS still wearing electrolytic capacitor. Just a reminder, solid capacitors generally considered to have the durability and quality that is better than electrolytic capacitor that is more affordable.

Given that the cost should you spend to redeem, various limitations this is a natural thing. ECS motherboard consign it for you who need a FM2 motherboard affordable and do not need the completeness of all kinds. Good again, ECS still provides a number of distinctive features such as the EZ Charger can recharge your mobile device battery quickly.
