Nvidia Tegra K1 Visual Computing Module for Self-Driving Cars

Posted by – January 24, 2014

Nvidia shows their new Tegra K1 based in-car infotainment system, using their advanced GPU to increase the photo realism of the car’s Digital Dashboard. When the car dashboard looks like and reacts like a real material, it becomes more glance able, less distracting in the car. The Tegra K1 will then also enable self-driving car technology, potentially processing all that is needed to be processed to power a self-driving car. Tegra K1 will drive camera-based, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) such as pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning and street sign recognition and can also monitor driver alertness via a dashboard-mounted camera.

Microsoft Windows 8 RT at Next Berlin

Posted by – May 9, 2013

I’m asking Microsoft Germany’s Windows Product Marketing Manager Boris Schneider-Johne some questions about the status of Windows RT, I also ask about the Android competition, RT vs Pro market share, everything on Windows RT is encrypted, Surface RT is his secondary computer (Photoshop/Ligthroom doesn’t run on RT), how often does RT crash? Connected Standby (gets latest info all the time through Connected Standby API), and I even ask questions which he obviously can’t answer, about Microsoft claiming ownership over Android (announcing certain Microsoft Partner Android companies paying Microsoft a licence for Android) Cheaper Windows RT? $299 instead of $599? 13.3″ RT? 7″ RT? 8″ RT? and the idea of making a Metro UI for Android (he says it can’t work).

Viewsonic VSD241 24″ and VSD220 22″ All-in-one Android Computers

Posted by – March 3, 2013

You get the full Android 4.1 Jelly Bean experience on the 24″ Viewsonic VSD241 1080p display running on a Tegra3 quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on the 22″ Viewsonic VSD220 1080p display running on the OMAP4430 dual-core ARM Cortex-A9. The price of integrating the ARM SoC with Android is perhaps not much more than selling the touch screen display by itself, and with the HDMI input and USB you can connect any Windows 8 Laptop or Desktop to this screen to thus use the same large touch screen to also use Windows 8.
