Fancy a Car With Remote Driving Control Technology?

Now for something really groovy. Imagine you've been parked in, the gap is too small to get the car door open and your contorted body in. So you step back, pull out your remote control for your Chinese-made BYD Su Rui (a plug-in hybrid car) and just operate the simple arrow controls to remotely drive your car out of its tight spot.

Also useful when it's raining and you can bring your car to you. Or if you where driving along and felt like walking, you could do just that and have the car follow you at a discreet distance!

The Chinese car maker, BYD has created just such a thing for its latest car, the Su Rui. It has been on sale in China since August this year and boasts many high-tech intelligent devices, such as the Bosch 9th generation Electronic Stability Programme, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, Electric Park Brake system, front right wheel blind spot visibility system, colour reversing video surveillance system, 13 types of intelligent voice reminder and 5.1 channel 10 speaker with independent power amplifier and in-car cinema.

And for the petrolheads there's; TID power assembly - turbo charged + direct injection + dual clutch transmission - whatever that means?

No idea if this car, never mind the remote control feature will ever make it to the western world. Can you imagine our health and safety boffins allowing us to remote drive our cars? Mind, with the remote driving you can only get up to 1.2 mph. Though, if the device was hacked?!

Accelerated Development for ARM Cortex CPUs & ARM Mali GPUs with Cotton Candy 

Posted: 16 Nov 2012 06:12 AM PST






FXI, maker of the Cstick Any Screen Micro Computer, has released a full system solution for ARM Linux and Android developers on its Cotton Candy device platform, targeting developers.

FXI is working closely with ARM to take full advantage of the capabilities of the ARM Mali-400 MP GPU (and other ARM technologies). The Cotton Candy Any Screen IP enables developers to work with the Cotton Candy device inserted in their PC and develop with their existing tool chains directly on the Cotton Candy.

The combination of the ARM Cortex-A9 and Mali-400 MP can be found in a wide range of devices ranging from smartphones, tablets and smart TVs. By using Cotton Candy, which also uses this combination, developers can target a wide range of Cortex processors and Mali GPU based platforms —or for Cotton Candy itself— can develop on actual market leading Mali silicon.

Existing owners of the Cotton Candy device can download development versions of Ubuntu Linux for ARM v12.04 and Android 4.0 in both source and binary forms by visiting http://www.fxitech.com. Developers can get Cotton Candy from http://store.cstick.com.
