Z kraju  Polski robot podwodny pojedzie na zawody do USA 

 

Studenci z Koła Naukowego Automatyki i Robotyki na Politechnice Wrocławskiej konstruują podwodnego robota, który może być wykorzystywany do eksploracji akwenów oraz inspekcji kadłubów statków, i który ma wziąć udział w w międzynarodowych zawodach robotów podwodnych MATE Competition w USA w czerwcu 2018 r. W ramach prac pilotażowych studenci wykonali już dwa podwodne roboty - jeden o mniejszym, drugi o większym stopniu zaawansowania.

Robot bardziej zaawansowany ma wymiary 50x30x40 cm i waży około 10 kg. Jak poinformował główny konstruktor robota Jakub Chmielewski, maszyna porusza się z prędkością około 5 m/s. Robota wyposażono w sześć silników, kamerę, oświetlenie LED, czujniki położenia i orientacji oraz czujnik temperatury zapobiegający przegrzaniu zasilacza.

Można nim sterować za pośrednictwem pada, a zasilający kabel ma długość 30 m. Ta właśnie konstrukcja będzie stanowić wzór wykorzystywany przy pracy nad trzecim robotem podwodnym, który pojedzie na zawody. Studenci poszukują obecnie sponsorów, którzy mogliby ich wspomóc finansowo.

Zawody robotów podwodnych MATE Competition, organizowane przez Marine Advanced Technology Education Center we współpracy z NASA, odbywają się w największym na świecie basenie o pojemności ponad 23 mln litrów i głębokości 12 metrów.

W zawodach rywalizuje co roku około 100 drużyn z całego świata. Zwycięzca nadchodzącej imprezy podpisze kontrakt na budowę podwodnego robota. Robot przygotowywany na zawody musi być wyposażony w dwa chwytne manipulatory, które pozwolą mu wykonać zadanie polegające na wydobyciu silnika z zatopionego wraku samolotu. Robot będzie musiał umieścić przy silniku poduszkę powietrzną, która wyniesie napęd na powierzchnię.

Morris Chang gives TSMC's outlook for 2018, says goodbye

As is customary at the beginning of the year chairman Morris Chang has given TSMC's view of the growth prospects for the semiconductor and foundry markets in the year to come. However, while speaking at the company's conference to discuss its fourth quarter 2017 results, Chang said it would be the last time he would be present at the quarterly financial conference before he retires on June 5. Chang told financial analysts that the global semiconductor market would grow by between 6 and 8 percent in 2018, while the market excluding memory would grow more slowly at between 5 and 7 percent. Chang's numbers are at odds with those of bullish forecaster Future Horizons but in line with other market analysts. więcej na: www.eenewseurope.com

Apple to release software update to resolve iPhone slowdown

Apple Inc will release a software update that will allow users to turn off a feature that slows down iPhones when batteries are low on charge, Chief Executive Tim Cook told ABC News. Apple will release a test version of its iOS software next month that shows users the health of their batteries and will let them turn off a phone-slowing feature meant to prevent sudden shutdowns in iPhones with older batteries. Cook said the phone-slowing software, released last year, was intended to make sure that iPhone users did not get cut off in the middle of an important call or text message because of an old battery. więcej na: www.reuters.com

LCD TV panel demand expected to go through a correction in 1Q18

Demand for liquid crystal display panels from South Korean and Chinese TV makers was strong in the fourth quarter of 2017, but implementation of their panel purchasing strategies for the first quarter of 2018 may result in a correction as demand expectations change. While some TV brands are expected to maintain their panel purchasing plans, others are forecast to reduce demand in the first quarter as it is a traditionally slow season and some demand was pulled into the last quarter, according to IHS Markit. According to IHS Markit, South Korean TV makers are expected to reduce LCD panel purchasing volumes by 3 percent in the first quarter of 2018 compared to the previous quarter, or to increase by 1 percent compared to the same period last year. więcej na: news.ihsmarkit.com

IBM returns to growth after six years, but dour forecast hits shares

IBM revenue rose for the first time in 23 quarters, beating analysts’ estimates, but the company warned that a higher tax rate this year would eat into its profit. IBM’s shares, which have rallied 10 percent so far this year on hopes of a strong turnaround in the company’s fortunes, fell more than 3 percent in extended trading on Thursday. The company forecast stable margins and revenue for 2018, buoyed by growth in its newer businesses such as cloud computing and security services. However, IBM forecast an operating profit of at least $13.80 per share for 2018, compared with $13.80 in 2017 and market expectations of $13.92, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. więcej na: www.reuters.com
