Even as preparations are underway for the upcoming hurricane season that is predicted to be another active one, concern is high across the Region at the manifestation of the changing climate. Late February, coastal erosion resulted in the collapse of about 18 000 square metres, the destruction of homes and the evacuation of families in Cedros, a seaside area in Trinidad and Tobago. The Trinidad Express in an editorial on 1 March, 2018, said that there were reports that waves from the sea were climbing higher, pounding the shore, and causing severe undermining. In Guyana last week, unusually large waves slammed the sea defence along the West Coast of Demerara, and caused heavy flooding in surrounding areas.

first_imgSumber: 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… Relatedlast_img read more

first_imgThe Guyana Tennis Association (GTA) along long-standing sponsor GBTI on Tuesday rewarded the winners of the recent GBTI/GTA lawn tennis tournament at GBTI’s Lawn Tennis Court and facilities, Bel Air, Georgetown. Headlining the list of awardees were Gavin Lewis and Afruica Gentle who both served their way to championship honours in the male and female Open categories. The two were triple crown winners after clinching championship honours in the doubles and mixed doubles categories. It was Gentle’s third time completing the feat while it was Lewis’ maiden Open and triple crown haul.Speaking with Stabroek Sport after the simple ceremony, 23-year-old Lewis, who recently returned from a scholarship stint in the US, revealed that his accomplishments are the fruits of hard labour. Newly crowned champs Gavin Lewis and Afruica Gentle will have their names engraved on the shield “It’s a good feeling… I’ve been training from March to the beginning of the tournament and I was expecting stiff competition given the fact that I was randomly placed in the draw where I had to face the defending champion in the quarterfinal but I managed to win and I’m satisfied with my performance,” Lewis said.The young man further disclosed that he is aiming to pursue his master’s degree in Italy where he will also get the opportunity to continue playing the sport at a competitive level. Lewis, who defeated the defending champion Anthony Downes in the semis, said he was appreciative of GBTI’s continuous effort to develop the sport. He also encouraged more youths to get involved in lawn tennis.  Gentle, on the other hand, who was the overall female MVP having won three titles, said she was confident of producing top performances from the go. “I knew it was coming. I was preparing for it. Unfortunately, last year I didn’t get to play because I was ill but this year I said I’ll win because I’ve put in a lot of work and dedicated myself to this,” the 18-year-old Roraima Tennis Club player explained. Gentle will not turn her attention to the international tennis action; she is set to depart Guyana tomorrow to participate in two lawn tennis tournaments in Jamaica – the Blue Mountain International Tennis Championships and the International Tennis Federation Tennis Championships.  Meanwhile, Pamela Binda, Public Relations and Marketing Director of GBTI, said the company is committed to sponsoring the tournament for the next decade.last_img read more
