The Shenzhen-based firm claims that its MH5000 chip family is the world’s first 5G car module set capable of piggybacking on its own 5G gear and base stations to marshal traffic and guide self-driving vehicles for higher mobility. The MH5000 module is based on its Balong 5000 5G chip launched in January.

Why? The world is gonna be safer, we’ll have robots / automatic taxis / teslas working for us, making us free money, while we get to lay back, spend it and enjoy life. Take that for progress. :twisted:

A typical commercial airliner will glide at a ratio of about 3:1. So if I were at 10000 feet and lost all my engines, I could expect to glide about 30 miles.
Quite a bit shorter than a small plane at 17:1
What I keep coming back to is... Who the heck asked for this? No one I know of. It's something they came up with and now thru advertising convince people they want.
It's like the sensors to stop the car...I've never known anyone to say.. "I'm such a poor driver and don't pay attention I need the car to stop it's self".
For the record, in case anybody took the above as fact: a Boeing 767, has a glide ratio of 12:1, which is on the low side for a commercial airliner. Commercial aircraft certainly do not have glide ratios anywhere near 3:1. A glide ratio of 10:1 is considered low performance and the domain of basic aircraft such as the cessna 172.

I have seen what may well be a 'game changer' in the field of AV or EV's.

The VW Buzz.

It is not initially being released (2022) as an AV, just an EV, but it will supposedly be set up as a ready change.
I see these being sold as quick as VW can get them to the showroom and of course other makers will have to have a market equivalent, so there may well be far more 'capable' vehicles on the road sooner than we all thought.
We are sitting on the shoulders of giants so we can see more things than they can

Reporters attending the experience bus tour said there was barely any loading time when watching any section of a high-definition online video on the bus.
A spokesman with the bus operator said they plan to open more 5G-covered bus routes in the future and use the speedy network to upgrade their bus operation to eventually realize self-driving buses.
