How to Construct a Simulation Scene for Testing Autonomous Driving System in a Virtual Environment?

Developing an autonomous driving system is one thing, and testing its efficacy is another thing. It is highly possible that researchers may have made un-realistic or ideal assumptions while designing an autonomous driving system. Such designed systems may look very promising on the paper. But since ground realities could be a bit harsh, it is possible that desired results could not be achieved. But the question arises that how can such developed systems be checked and verified? The classic approach says to run a trial test. However, given the implications associated with the autonomous driving systems, trial tests in real-time could prove to be fatal. If algorithms are not efficient and reality-based, what if it hit a pedestrian? What if it violates the traffic signals and could get in a road accident? There is a lot of risks associated with such trial tests.

What are the Requirements of the Autonomous Driving System?

From the invention of the first steam engine to the regime of self-driving cars, the automobile industry has experienced an unprecedented transformation and progress. Now the focus of automobile manufacturers is on the development of autonomous driving systems rather than improving the designs of existing models. It is due to such rigorous research and development ventures that the autonomous driving system has covered the distance of going from the “maybe possible” to the “definitely possible”. There are estimates that driverless technology will contribute an additional $7 billion into the global economy. Furthermore, if companies like Tesla, Google, Nissan, General Motors, and Ford are pouring billions in the R&D of such systems, then undoubtedly, there is a lot of potential in this sector.

Remote PI Planning in Scaled SCRUM Setups

COVID-19 pandemic has changed the norms of society. From dining habits to working culture, everything has been changed. It is just a 400nm virus that caused all these changes. The word “remote working or working from home”, which we keep on hearing, again and again, was the sort of offensive in the past. But with the eruption of COVID-19, every business, whether small or big, has shifted towards remote working.

Agile public crisis management – is it possible?

It is a debatable topic to explore agile in terms of public crisis management. It is easy to comprehend that agile management and public crisis management have at least one thing in common that they are mostly used in situations with low predictability of future events. But, it also raises the following questions:
Is there anything else they have in common?
Could crisis managers learn from agile management principles?

How to get the perfect exposure for every photo?

With the huge progress of digital media, people are now moving towards digital mediums to market their products. Not only have they proved to be beneficial from the commercial perspective, but the domestic perspective is also quite bright. Furthermore, with the more usage of digital mediums like Instagram, photography has more or less become a type of leisure as well as freelance activity. According to the different statistics, a total of about 1.42 trillion photos were taken in 2019. There are projections that; there will be 1.43 trillion photos that will be taken in 2020. There is no doubt in admitting the fact that not every photographer can take a perfect photo, as only a few of them know how to click a perfect picture. While picture techniques vary, it has been noted that perfect exposure plays a major role in clicking a splendid picture.
