Tying Technology with Service

Wednesday, September 27th, 2017

Technology is a constantly changing and evolving concept which due to the efforts of today’s society, has become the mainstream for how we all communicate, view the world, and how we envision the future. This science of technology is a concept that was first started with the invention of the first wheel all the way up to us putting a man on the moon. The mother of invention is the thoughts and dreams that people begin to put into research and development of their ideas to make them tangible. A few of the more comprehensive results of technology is the cloud which are technically data centers spread across the world which help to reduce on the cost of hardware being purchased by companies and the overhead of having to pay administrators to maintain the equipment. This new feature which companies and government agencies alike are moving toward is changing the technological landscape.

The services which were once thought of as mundane or no respect that was given to Information Technology are no longer the overlooked or mediocre jobs. Information Technology professionals are now some of the most highly paid individuals that not only maintain a company, but also push that company ahead in an everchanging market. From software architects, engineers, project managers, and even down to the help desk person all play a part in ensuring that a company that has these individuals can compete against other organizations. From answering simple questions to creating designs to implement, all levels of Information Technology all have a process to get the product or service completed.

Many looked back to the 80’s or 90’s to see how the world viewed technology as a video tape player or a Walkman and a television set. The computer which was once depicted to be used by nerds with pocket protectors are now the Wolves of Wall Street or the Steve Jobs of the world. Getting in to where society is headed at an early stage is always an opportunity which knocks for everyone that is interested in Information Technology.  The most beautiful aspect of Information Technology is that even with all the inventions and progress that has been made, there is still plenty more to go. By saying that there is plenty more to go, it simply means that the possibilities of technology today are endless.

A recap on just a few months this year are the unveiling of the iPhone X which is taking the Apple community by storm and said to change the way how users interact with their smartphone for years to come. Another new revelation is the first commercial flight to the moon will take place in 2018 through Space X which is owned by Elon Musk. Elon Musk which coincidentally is the CEO for Tesla, America’s number electric car producer, oversees the Hyperloop which is on the verge of being put into mainstream.  There are so many inventions and advancements that are taking place by the moment that these are some very interesting times to be in.

Passenger Drone Now In The US – Order like a Taxi!

Sunday, September 10th, 2017

Now who is ready for more state of the art technology? IT GURUS OF ATLANTA says the word is ready! When speaking of state of the art, we speak of the next level in technological advancements. Earlier this year we spoke about the new drones being pushed by Amazon that are being utilized to make their deliveries more efficient. Soon Amazon will be making deliveries to doorsteps of millions of homes in America once they have been approved by the government to do so. Now with even better drones being built by the hour, why not shape the way we travel while we are at it? Well a company in China is doing just that. The name of the company is called Ehang. Ehang has developed passenger drones which are capable of carrying passengers to and from locations the same way a drone would.

 

The prototype has been cleared for testing in the state of Nevada.  With the possibility of this passenger drone being sold commercially, this is a huge move for the company to get their product in the US.  Ehang’s drone is capable of carrying 1 passenger for 23 minutes in any direction the same way a drone would. The passenger drone is capable of traveling at altitudes of 11,500 feet and moving at 63 mph. The drone is completely electric and comprised of 8 propellers, 4 main arms which has upper and lower arms, can carry up to 264lbs, and has the same features of a conventional quadcopter.

 

Ehang partnered with the Nevada Institute for Autonomous Systems (NIAS) and the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (Goed) in order to get approval for the testing in Nevada. The goal of the company is to unleash the possibilities of aerial transportation on a commercial level. The vision of the company is for passengers to input their destination in the drone then allow the drone to complete the trip autonomously. These tests in Nevada are necessary in order for the FAA to approve the Ehang 184 for commercial use. Nevada has been noted as one of the forward-thinking states to allow the testing of autonomous vehicles on public roads such as the Google self-driving car.

 

 

The vehicle would not have any controls for the passenger to use. They would simply program their destination in their app, the vehicle would arrive to pick them up, and then take them to their destination. This would be done with very little interaction. As a backup, the company states that it would instill a remote-control center which would take over the vehicle in case any problems arise.

 

Being that this is cutting edge on the market, Ehang has matched the price with the demand by asking for $200,000 to $300,000 per vehicle. Even with the drone being tested currently, it still has hurdles to overcome such as being able to use the 4G wireless network in order to utilize the GPS, divert from potential hazards, and detect more efficient routes. The current concerns of the FAA is that there are no controls as well as safety concerns which the tests in Nevada will have to overcome.

With the growth of drone usage and autonomous vehicles taking over in companies such as Uber, Lyft, Google self-driving, and now the Ehang 184, it is clear that autonomous vehicles are here to stay. No longer are they a vision of the future or in sci-fi movies. The automation and sophistication of the future is now here in 2017.
