When much of the global economy locked down last year, insurers, facing estimated losses of more than $100 billion globally, reached straight for their red pens to strike pandemic cover from all new business policies. Denis Kessler, chairman and CEO of French reinsurer SCOR, summed it up when he told a recent conference that pandemic risk was like war. U.S. company SpottedRisk has devised a model built on years of data on the political and economic environment of film locations in 150 countries, as well as a year's COVID-19 shutdown data, to come up with a pricing mechanism to cover the risk of production stopping due to the pandemic.
The remainder of the suspended Indian Premier League (IPL) season will have to be played outside the country, the organising Indian cricket board said, though it is unclear whether a window can be found to play the outstanding 31 games. The popular Twenty20 league was suspended indefinitely last week after several personnel tested positive for COVID-19. India reported 366,161 new COVID-19 infections on Monday, taking the caseload to 22.66 million.

Terranet har växlat upp med ett nytt tempo i produktutvecklingen av VoxelFlow genom att nyligen ha undertecknat strategiska samarbetsavtal med Prophesee, Sensor Cortek och Summer Robotics. Samtliga tre är branschspecialister inom algoritmutveckling, kamerahårdvara, robotautomation och bildanalys. Dessa ingångna samarbetsavtal tillsammans med den nyligen aviserade investeringen i Holoride (med Audi som huvudägare) samt deltagandet tidigare i år i Startup Autobahn (inkubatorn som drivs av Mercedes Benz) visar på både efterfrågan och intresset för VoxelFlowsensorn. Med ny banbrytande teknologi och potential att bli en global marknadsledare som helt förändrar spelplanen och utmanar bilindustrin är det viktigt att kontinuerligt utvärdera, identifiera och säkerställa flera kommersiella inriktningar så tidigt som möjligt. Inte minst viktigt är det att bygga upp ett ekosystem med biltillverkare och underleverantörer och att driva detta utifrån en väldefinierad roadmap, partnerskapsstrategi och outsourcingmodell. Allt i syfte att kostnadseffektivt optimera utvecklingen med inhyrda experter inom bl a 3D-visualisering, mjukvaruanpassning av laserscanner, kamerahårdvara och system-on-chip-integration. Sensor Cortek, Prophesee och Summer Robotics är några sådana strategiskt viktiga underleverantörer. VoxelFlow är en sensor med en implementation som i första hand bygger på objektidentifikation och kollisionsvarning. Det primära tillämpningsområdet för VoxelFlow är avancerat förarstöd. VoxelFlows förmåga att blixtsnabbt scanna av ett område framför bilen, gör den till en säkerhetskritisk applikation inom både automatiserad körning, navigations- och automatiska bromssystem samt industriell robotautomation. Dessa tre samarbeten förstärker väsentligt vår operativa kapacitet att adressera vårt fokusområde inom avancerat förarstöd (ADAS) samt att vidga tillämpningsområdet i den vidare industrialiseringen, standardiseringen och kommersialiseringen av VoxelFlow, säger bolagets VD Pär-Olof Johannesson. Om Terranet Terranet utvecklar mjukvara för radiobaserade lösningar och tredimensionell bildanalys för avancerat förarstöd och självkörande fordon (ADAS och AD). I linje med Sveriges historia när det gäller att föra innovativa säkerhetsåtgärder till bilindustrin, är Terranet banbrytande genom sin säkerhetsteknik VoxelFlow™ för ADAS- och AD-industrier med sitt huvudkontor i Lund, Sverige och dess kontor i Kiev, Ukraina och i Stuttgart, Tyskland.

A couple out on a run came across a variety of snakes intertwined in branches piled beneath a trail bridge in Cumming, Georgia, on May 6.Lydia du Preez, who shot this footage, told Storyful she and her husband were stretching on Big Creek Greenway when they noticed “slight movement” by the Bethelview Road Trailhead bridge.“We looked more closely and realized there were snakes — actually lots of snakes,” she told Storyful. “There were literally dozens of them slithering around in the swampy area below the bridge in the debris. It looked as if the ground was moving!”In the video, snakes can be seen strewn across the waterway debris basking in the spring sun. Some of the snakes slither and coil around each other.“We were shocked to see so many of them all in one place together, especially at such a popular, heavily trafficked area!” du Preez said. “We’ve been here so many times and have seen an occasional critter on the trail, but we have never seen anything like this before!” Credit: Lydia du Preez via Storyful
London's River Thames had an unusual visitor on Sunday - a small whale stranded in the southwest of the city. Media reports say that the whale, believed to be a minke, was first noticed on Sunday evening at Richmond Lock and Weir. Video posted on social media showed a man dousing the whale with water before a team of rescuers arrived by boat. Local media reported that the rescuers worked into the night to free the animal. The BBC said that the whale was successfully moved to a safer location after nearly four hours. It also reported that the animal will be assessed by a vet to check it is healthy enough to be released.
