France demands to make the "right to oblivion" global - on what it can be affected by

The French organization CNIL , dealing with the protection of personal data in the country, demanded that Google extend the "right to oblivion" to the whole world. The regulator wants the links removed from the French version to be hidden in versions of Google for other countries.
 
 
IT giant did not agree with this requirement, because the dispute between Google and CNIL went to the hall of the Court of Justice of the European Union. Next, we understand the essence of the conflict.

Modeling of the Sagnac effect by the methods of geometric optics

Modeling of the Sagnac effect by the methods of geometric optics
 
High-precision inertial navigation systems (INS) are one of the most high-tech elements of the modern aerospace and military industry. The task of such systems, built on the basis of accelerometers and optical gyroscopes, is the determination of angular velocities, accelerations of a moving object, and, in general, the orientation of the object in three-dimensional space.
 
The specific feature of the ANN simulation is that in the modeling domain, both rectilinear and rotational motion often occur, which strongly affects the operation of these systems and, accordingly, requires accounting. In this article we ...

High-precision (± 2cm) tracking of the Copter (XYZ) without GLONASS /GPS inside and outside

Good day, colleagues,
 
 
We here flew recently with a high-precision (± 2cm) tracking of the Copter and wanted to share:
 
 

 
 
Configuration:
 
- DJI Phantom II
 
- It has a mobile lighthouse Marvelmind Indoor "GPS"
 
- A system of 6 stationary Marvelmind Indoor "GPS" beacons is deployed: 4 on the ground and 2 - at a height of 2.5 m - are attached to the kiosk
 
 
Simultaneous species:
 
- View from the camera of the Copter
 
- View from outside on the copter
 
- Live view of the track in XY (right-bottom)
 
- Type XY in post-processing (delay 5 counts) - left bottom
 
- Type ZX in post-processing ...

Tasting the Seagull. In the arsenal of radio hacker

Tasting the Seagull. In the arsenal of radio hacker
 
Here it is like this, all your life you study, you work, you think you are such a peppercorn, salt of the earth, and then you understand
 
It was so, I planned system of jamming navigation , made fee for her. I write, honestly, without guile, say, the synchronization input is, you can send there the signal of the exact PPS time and do the measurements.
 
And then it dawned on me: if there is no navigation, then there is no exact time either! (Here I also remembered old Munchausen, who also wanted to pull himself out by the hair from the water). Almost everything today, including me, still does ...

How to use trams to make it easier for the taxi driver to find you

How to use trams to make it easier for the taxi driver to find youIn the continuation of the discussion around articles on the method of increasing the accuracy of positioning , developed in Uber, I would like to share about the research conducted in my small company and tell about the technology with which we are trying to solve a similar problem. Just note that there will be no mathematical calculations and deep technical details, I will try to make all the explanations as accessible as possible in the language. If it became interesting to know, and where the actual trams, then please under the cut.
 
 
So, I think no one will have any problems imagining ...

Rethinking GPS: Developing a new generation positioning system in Uber

Rethinking GPS: Developing a new generation positioning system in Uber
 
 
Location and navigation using global positioning system (GPS) have deeply penetrated our daily lives, and they are particularly critical for Uber services. To organize fast and efficient selection, our GPS technologies need to know the situation of the passengers and drivers compared, as well as provide a navigation guide from the current position of the driver to the place where you need to pick up the passenger, and then to the desired destination. For the smoothest operation of such a system, determining the location for passengers and drivers should be as accurate as possible.

Work with notifications about events of IOT objects and GPS trackers

The service completely updated the system for creating and working with notifications about the events of IOT objects and GPS trackers. Notifications can be created by the events of input /output from geozones; the absence of messages from the object within a given time; events generated on objects and any of the attributes of messages coming from objects. Work with notifications about events of IOT objects and GPS trackers
 
 
When setting up a notification, you define: the condition under which it is generated; text of the notification and the channels by which it will be delivered.  
 
If t...
