This is our second look at the new GeForce GTX 1660. Not to be confused with the 1660 Ti that was released a month earlier, both GPUs offer great value at mid-range prices of $220 for the GTX 1660 and $280 for the Ti version. For those of you who missed it, our day one review of the GTX 1660 featured a dozen games, many of which were recently released titles and there the new GPU came out looking like a champ. Today we're expanding the benchmark test to a grand total of 33 games to see how it stacks up to the likes of AMD's Radeon RX 580 and 590. While we don’t expect this expanded benchmark test to change much, it should serve as a decent buying guide for those tossing up between the GTX 1660 and perhaps the Radeon RX 580. The fact that the new GeForce GPU is some 30% faster in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey might not matter much if you predominantly play titles such as Strange Brigade, Battlefield V or Sniper Elite 4, to cite a few examples. To give you a better idea of how … [Read more...] about GeForce GTX 1660 Tested: 33 Game Benchmark feat. The Division 2

Christian Nguyen, provided by Published 2:00 pm PST, Wednesday, March 6, 2019 AB Dynamics develops products to help manufacturers test advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) like automatic braking or lane keeping. They created the Soft Pedestrian Target, or SPT, a moving dummy with the radar signature of a person. Tests with the SPT verify modern cars can detect and evade pedestrians. Watch the video above to see the SPT in action. AB Dynamics employs many tools to test advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) according to rigorous standards by automotive safety agencies like Euro NCAP and NHTSA. One tool is the Soft Pedestrian Target, or SPT, that simulates a pedestrian in a real-world environment. Following is a transcript of the video: Narrator: These biking, strolling, rolling dummies take the hits so you don't have to. They exist to make sure the pedestrian avoidance systems in today's modern cars work.

And for now, Waymo One has human monitors at the wheel. But the company's plan is to transition to a fully driverless service. No one behind the … [Read more...] about A Waymo employee reveals what it’s like to create the unique voice of self-driving cars (GOOGL)
One of the words that’s most commonly associated with Apple’s self-driving car program is “secretive.” Unlike most of its competitors, Apple has been frustratingly tight-lipped regarding the self-driving cars it’s testing in California. On Wednesday, the company had an opportunity to pull back the curtain on the so-called “Project Titan” with the release of its voluntary safety report to federal regulators. But, unsurprisingly, the smartphone giant is still keeping the most tantalizing details under wraps. Apple’s report is almost comically short: seven pages, compared to an average length of 39 pages from the other companies who have submitted reports. In it, Apple describes its interest in self-driving systems in broad, world-saving terms, but it’s noticeably mum on practically every key detail surrounding the project. There’s nothing on future deployments or commercial applications for the technology. There aren’t … [Read more...] about Apple’s secretive self-driving car project is starting to come into focus
