Sumber: mobilemarketingmagazine.com Sebuah perusahaan yang bergerak di bidang robotik, ZMP mengaku bekerja sama dengan sebuah operator taksi di Tokyo guna meluncurkan sebuah layanan taksi otonom yng akan dioperasikan dalam perhelatan Olimpiade 2020 mendatang. Pemilihan penggunaan taksi tanpa pengemudi pun seolah ditunjang dengan krisis tenaga kerja yang tengah menghantam Jepang, karena populasi pengemudi yang semakin merosot akibat termakan usia.Baca Juga: Lihat Dampak Pada Kota, iCity-CATT Akan Tinjau Teknologi Pada Mobil OtonomKehadiran teknologi semacam ini tentu membawa angin segar bagi beberapa perusahaan terkait yang dapat dimanfaatkan sebagai ajang mendorong kesejahteraan perusahaannya. Walaupun terdengar amat modern, namun perusahaan semacam ini harus kuat menghadapi kerasnya persaingan melawan salah satu raksasa pelayanan jasa transportasi berbasis aplikasi, Uber. Terlebih jika di masa yang akan datang, pemerintah sudah mengeluarkan sebuah payung hukum yang mengizinkan pengoperasian dari ride-sharing untuk beroperasi di seluruh negeri. CEO ZMP, Hisashi Taniguchi mengatakan taksi dengan dan tanpa pengemudi sama-sama memiliki keuntungan dan kekurangan masing-masing, dan jika digabaungkan, maka kedua perusahaan ini bisa menjadi sebuah terobosan baru. “Taksi otonom dan industri taksi bisa tumbuh dan berkembang bersama-sama,” tutur Hishashi seperti yang KabarPenumpang.com lansir dari laman fortune.com (15/6/2017), sesaat setelah dirinya mengumumkan kemitraan ZMP dengan Hinomaru Kotsu.Hingga saat ini, Hinomaru memiliki 607 mobil, dan itu hanyalah satu dari sepuluh perusahaan armada taksi di Tokyo. Namun, dengan banyaknya armada yang mereka miliki tenaga kerja mereka tetaplah kurang. “Kami telah mencoba untuk memperbaiki keragaman dengan mempekerjakan lebih banyak lulusan baru, seperti wanita dan orang asing, tapi ini tidak akan cukup untuk menutupi kekurangan tenaga kerja,” kata Presiden Hinomaru, Kazutaka Tomita. “Kami harus mengimbangi kekurangan pasokan dengan menggunakan teknologi penggerak otonom (taksi otonom),” tambahnya.Baca Juga: Waymo Pastikan Penumpang Mobil Otonom Aman Dengan Teknologi IniZMP mengembangkan perangkat keras dan perangkat lunak pengemudi otomatis berdasarkan kamera laser dan stereo, yang diharapkan dapat dijual ke perusahaan transportasi dan mobil. Di sebuah negara yang terkenal karena industri otomotif sebagai daya tariknya dengan robot, ZMP adalah satu dari beberapa start-up yang mengembangkan mobil otonom untuk bersaing dengan perusahaan asing, termasuk U.S. ‘ NuTonomi dan China’s Future Mobility.ZMP telah menguji kendaraan otonom yang juga memiliki kursi pengemudi di jalan-jalan di Tokyo sejak 2016, dan berencana untuk membuat armada taksi semacam itu untuk mengangkut atlet dan tamu untuk perhelatan Olimpiade Tokyo 2020. Ia berharap bisa mengetes mobil otonom tahun ini. Rencana taksi self-driving milik ZMP menemukan halangan pada awal tahun ini ketika kehilangan kemitraan dengan pengembang perangkat lunak game DeNA Co, yang berpasangan dengan Nissan Motor untuk mengembangkan layanan untuk mobil penggerak otonom.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Related

Jamaica-born Manchester City and England forward Raheem Sterling is back in the UK headlines this week, but it’s another round of discussion around what is likely to be a massive endorsement deal with soda giant, Pepsi. Sterling seems on the verge of becoming one of football’s top earners as he is tipped to join the likes of Lionel Messi and Paul Pogba as part of the iconic brand’s Euro 2020 advertising campaign. Messi is, of course, football’s top earner for the 2019-20 season, who Forbes estimates raked in a massive US$127 million (J$17.2 billion), US$35 million (J$4.7 billion) of which is from sponsorship deals with adidas, Gatorade, Huawei, Mastercard, and, of course, Pepsi. A Pepsi endorsement deal would put Sterling in stellar company, as he joins a signature list of global legends like Michael Jackson, Beyoncé, Madonna, Britney Spears, and David Beckham from previous campaigns. COURTED BY BRANDS Just last month, the Telegraph reported that Sterling was being courted by Nike’s Air Jordan brand as they seek to capture more significant market share. A signing with Air Jordan would make Sterling one of only two footballers to represent the Jordan brand, with the other being Neymar Jr. But lucrative endorsement deals are likely to put the 24-year-old in good position to crack the Forbes 100 highest earning athletes in 2020. At present, only 11 footballers are on the 2019 list with Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Neymar occupying the top three spots, respectively. The other eight are Pogba, Andrés Iniesta, Alexis Sanchez, Kylian Mbappe, Mesut Özil, Oscar, Gareth Bale, and Mohamed Salah. Long gone are the days when endorsements were seen as supplemental to the athlete’s financial arsenal, with many now making more from endorsements than they do from their player salaries. LeBron James’ Earnings More than 60 per cent of LeBron James’ earnings are from his endorsement deals, with the Business Insider reporting that he makes over US$53 million (just over J$7 billion) in ambassador deals with Beats Electronics, RIMOWA, Coca-Cola, KIA Motors, and Nike. His NBA salary is US$36 million (almost J$4.9 billion). Over in the world of tennis, Roger Federer is banking big off the court, with only US$7.4 million (J$1 billion) in salaries over the last year, and a whopping US$86 million (J$11.6 billion) from his endorsements with Credit Suisse Group, Wilson, Barilla, Mercedes-Benz, Rolex, and Uniqlo. Tiger Woods also makes less than US$10 million (J$1.3 billion) in salaries from golf, and US$54 million ($7.3 billion) in endorsement deals with the likes of Upper Deck, TaylorMade, Monster Energy, Hero Motocorp, Nike, and Rolex accounting for his net worth of close to US$800 million (over J$108 billion). Woods has taken many brand hits over the years with public intoxication and his widely publicised marital issues, but he has rebounded on each occasion, most recently through his win at the Master’s tournament last April. But while some of the biggest names in sports continue to bank big outside of their salaries, boxing’s biggest names continue to buck that trend. The world’s best pound-for-pound boxer, Canelo Alvarez, is making major money moves fight after fight based on his massive pay-per-view deals. He made a whopping US$92 million (almost J$12.5 billion) in salaries last year, and only US$2 million (J$271 million) from endorsements with Everlast and DAZN. This places Alvarez fourth on the Globe’s list of richest athletes on the planet. Tanya Lee has over 10 years’ expertise as a Caribbean sports marketer and is also an athlete manager and publicist.
LONDON (AP):Arsenal captain Granit Xhaka appeared to swear at his team’s own supporters after being substituted yesterday when a two-goal lead was surrendered against Crystal Palace to draw 2-2 in the English Premier League.The decision by Unai Emery to withdraw Xhaka in the second half was initially greeted by large cheers, which soon turned to jeers as he took his time to leave the field despite the score being level.Xhaka reacted by waving his arms, cupping his ears, and seemingly mouthing a profanity twice as he pushed away a handshake from Emery. Xhaka took off his shirt and headed straight down the tunnel.“He’s wrong, but we are going to speak inside about that situation,” Emery told the BBC. “I want to be calm, but really, he was wrong in this action.”It had started so well, with goals in the opening nine minutes.Arsenal defensive duo Sokratis Papastathopoulos and David Luiz scored inside 106 seconds.But it started to go wrong in the 32nd minute when Luka Milivojevic netted a penalty that was awarded after a video assistant referee (VAR) review. Palace winger Wilfried Zaha had initially been booked for diving.“I didn’t understand the referee and VAR reaction,” Emery said. “For me, there is no confusion. It is not a good decision.”Jordan Ayew’s fourth goal in eight games brought Palace level before further VAR drama as Sokratis was denied a late winner when the review spotted a foul by Calum Chambers moments earlier.

Just four days after Steve Cotterill’s side had kept promotion-chasing Peterborough United at bay with a man short for more than three-quarters of the game, the roles were reversed after Swindon’s Alex Pritchard saw red on 55 minutes.City were a constant threat following a cagey first 20 minutes, but ultimately unable to conjure a first win over their West Country rivals in 11 years.Manager Cotterill handed a debut to defender Nyron Nosworthy, who replaced the suspended Adam El-Abd in the only change following Tuesday’s heroics at London Road, with fellow loan signing Martin Paterson among the substitutes.A spicy atmosphere helped by an away following in excess of 2,000 from Wiltshire spilled over on to the pitch as early as the second minute when Louis Thompson went into the book for a late lunge on Scott Wagstaff.With referee Trevor Kettle making clear his intentions not to cut the players any slack from the off, defender Troy Archibald-Henville could have been considered fortunate to escape similar punishment for a trip on Jay Emmanuel-Thomas which hovered somewhere between clumsy and cynical.The opening exchanges were a classic example of both sides not wanting to give anything away – Swindon having shipped four at home to Wolves in midweek; City without a clean sheet this year.Town left-back Jay McEveley tried his luck with his weaker right foot with a shot which just lacked the necessary curl to trouble Frank Fielding, before the Robins produced the best move of the game by some distance on 22 minutes.A sequence of passes started by Simon Gillett saw Sam Baldock release Greg Cunningham down the left. The Irishman’s intelligent cutback found the onrushing Wade Elliott, whose first-time shot forced towards the bottom corner forced a decent sprawling save from Wes Foderingham in the Swindon goal.That chance lifted not only the noise levels inside Ashton Gate, but also the tempo of the game, which gradually began to open up.Winger Pritchard, shortlisted for the League One Player of the Year award, spotted the run of lanky striker Michael Smith soon after.When Pritchard’s clipped ball was headed out by Derrick Williams, Australian Massimo Luongo was quick to seize on the loose ball and drill a low shot a couple of yards wide of the far post.At the other end, Cunningham’s excellent cross from deep prompted a looping header from Baldock which had Foderingham nervously backpedalling, before Baldock’s cross was just too high for Emmanuel-Thomas and Wagstaff saw a shot from range deflect away for a corner.The former Charlton Athletic man might have been breathing a sigh of relief when his reckless lunge on danger man Pritchard was only punished by a yellow card shortly before the interval.The visitors would have been smarting had the same man opened the scoring at the start of the second period.Some excellent work from Elliott saw the midfielder weave between two challenges and fire a low shot against the legs of Foderingham. As the ball broke kindly into Wagstaff’s pass, his left-footed shot lacked the same conviction and was blocked with Foderingham still getting to his feet.It was a purposeful opening to the half from the home team, as illustrated by another Elliott burst down the right side of the penalty area which culminated in a low cross to the back post which looked to have run too far before Emmanuel-Thomas slid in to hook it goalwards and was only denied by the width of the near post.Swindon were on the back foot, and their case was not helped by the dismissal of Pritchard ten minutes into the second half for a stupid push into the chest of Elliott, who fell to the floor and left Kettle with little option but to produce a flash of red.It was Elliott’s initial foul on Pritchard that instigated the reaction, and, after the City man was booked for his troubles, Ryan Harley produced his side’s best moment of the half.The former City midfielder, who started his career at Ashton Gate, forced Fielding into a diving save from the resulting 30-yard free kick.After the ball ran away for a corner, Harley’s delivery was headed goalwards by Smith and saved by Fielding, before the keeper sprung to his feet to make another important stop from the same player on the rebound.Suddenly those labouring opening 20 minutes felt very much a thing of the past, as the contest ebbed and flowed towards a conclusion.Cotterill threw on Wes Burns, Marlon Pack and later Paterson for his debut in search of a winner.It was Burns’ by now trademark raids down the right which looked to represent City’s best chance of finding it, and from one low cross Emmanuel-Thomas just dawdled too long before Jack Stephens dived in to take the sting out of his eventual shot.Still the hosts kept coming, but Emmanuel-Thomas’ last-minute corner somehow eluded everyone inside the danger zone and Swindon hung on for a gritty point.

TOP PHOTO: Since 1999, Ray Caldwell has been a fixture on Sunday mornings in Downtown La Follette selling newspapers.LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – It’s pouring the rain. There’s Ray. Who could stand this kind of cold? Ray! It’s already past 90-degrees. No, sweat for Ray. For 75- year old Ray Caldwell, it’s just another Sunday of selling the Knoxville News Sentinel no matter what the weather.“Oh, I have customers who’ve stopped for a newspaper every Sunday since I started more than 21-years ago,” said the hard working Caldwell. He even still works his day job at IGA. “I’m part time now. I’m not up to those regular 60-hour weeks like when I worked for Woodson’s Super Market,” said the East Central Avenue Sunday fixture. Caldwell is closing in on 50-years working at the Woodson/IGA supermarket. He started there in 1972.Ray Caldwell said the price of the Sunday paper increased from two dollars to three dollars this year.Ray’s still dealing with a couple of big challenges; the construction traffic pattern and COVID-19. The closing of churches has cut sales in half after the road work diverted sales south. “It’s good seeing some familiar faces again since many of the churches have started opening back up,” said Caldwell.Caldwell is at his Downtown La Follette post every Sunday morning by 6:45 am. Prior to COVID-19, he’d been there until 1 pm, but has been cutting out a little earlier around 12:30 pm of late.In addition to his grocery store gig, he used to deliver newspapers daily starting at 1 am. That was over a 12-year span with three of those years part time. He delivered 800 newspapers a day to stores from Caryville to Food Lion.Rain or shine, Ray Caldwell is peddling papers on Sunday mornings in Downtown La Follette.His biggest sales day was the post national championship edition of the Sentinel when Tennessee won the national football crown in January 1999. I sold way more than a hundred papers that Sunday and could’ve sold a lot more.No matter what the weather, this next Sunday, Ray Caldwell will be out selling Sunday papers in Downtown La Follette.
