Bosch is finally making LiDAR sensors for autonomous cars

  Bosch is finally making LiDAR sensors for autonomous cars Bosch says it's developed production-ready LiDAR sensors for use in vehicles. It's hoping to keep costs down by making them at scale. That way, it might be able to offer them at a lower price and bolster more widespread adoption of autonomous driving systems. LiDAR is the final piece of the sensor puzzle for Bosch's self-driving ambitions. The company said it designed the sensors for all autonomous driving use cases.

Bosch says it has developed a rapid test that can detect the coronavirus in just two and a half hours. It’s the latest example of a company joining the fight against COVID-19.

Because the test can be performed at the point of care, it eliminates the need to transport samples. It also speeds up the time it takes for the patient to receive the result.

The test was developed in just six weeks in partnership with the Northern Irish medical technology company Randox Laboratories.

Bosch says the test will available in Germany in April, with other markets likely to follow soon after.

Bosch unveils first production-ready long-range lidar

  Bosch unveils first production-ready long-range lidar System uses light sensors to detect obstacles and could be critical for self-driving carsSet to be demonstrated at next week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the lidar covers both short and long ranges and is intended to be combined with existing radar and camera technology, “complementing each other perfectly and delivering reliable information in every driving situation”.

Coronavirus counter with new cases, historical data, and info. Daily charts, graphs, news and updates. 71 new cases and 2 new deaths in India. PM Modi said: "Many people are still not taking the lockdown seriously. Please save yourself, save your family, follow the instructions seriously.

The US Food and Drug Administration announced it has authorized the use of the first rapid diagnostic test that could detect the novel coronavirus in approximately 45 minutes.

The companies say it is the first fully automated molecular diagnostic test of its kind.

A sample is taken from the patient’s nose or throat using a swab. The cartridge is inserted into an analysis device, with no prior training required.

Crucially, the medical staff are free to perform other tasks while they’re waiting for the results of the test.

It takes just 100 devices to evaluate up to 1,000 tests per day. In the laboratory, Bosch recorded results with an accuracy of over 95 percent. The rapid test meets the quality standards of the World Health Organisation (WHO).

“Time is of the essence in the fight against coronavirus. Reliable, rapid diagnosis directly on site with no back and forth – that is the great advantage of our solution.”

Marc Meier, president of Bosch Healthcare Solutions, added: “The special feature of the Bosch test is that it offers differential diagnosis, which saves doctors the additional time needed for further tests. It also provides them with a reliable diagnosis quickly so they can then begin suitable treatment faster.

“Together with our partner Randox, we have succeeded in developing this innovative rapid test within a very short time frame, and we are now in a position to offer it to the market. The Bosch Vivalytic analysis device evaluates the test safely and reliably directly in the hospital, in the lab, or in the doctor’s office, guaranteeing the best possible protection for patients and medical staff.”
