first_img(Reuters) Bus tanpa pengemudi adalah salah satu pencapaian teknologi masa kini yang tengah diuji coba di berbagai belahan dunia. Di Asia Tenggara, Singapura tak pelak menjadi pelopornya setelah keberhasilan Negara Pulau tersebut menguji bus ukuran besar milik Volvo tanpa pengemudi pada Selasa (5/3/2019) kemarin.Baca juga: Singapura Hadirkan “Kota Mini” dengan Kendaraan OtonomKabarPenumpang.com melansir dari laman engadget.com (5/3/2019), peluncuran uji coba bus listrik tanpa awak ini dilakukan oleh Volvo dan Universitas Teknologi Nanyang Singapura (NTU). Sebagai wahana adalah bus Volvo singlle deck 7900, dimana bus mampu mengangkut hingga 80 penumpang sekaligus dari NTU. Sedangkan bus kedua asal Swedia ini akan menjalani uji coba di sebuah depot bus yang dikelola oleh operator angkutan umum Singapura. Peluang ini akhirnya akan membuat bus listrik tanpa awak itu bergabung dengan armada transit lainnya.Gabungan ini sendiri termasuk dengan mini van yang ukurannya lebih kecil dan akan menyusuri tiga wilayah Singapura pada tahun 2020 mendatang. Tak hanya itu, Jepang dan Inggris juga merencanakan inisiatif transportasi otonom yang serupa dengan miliknya sendiri.Bus listrik Volvo 7900 mengemas 36 kursi dan melepaskan emisi nol. NTU mengklaim bahwa bus tersebut mengkonsumsi energi 80 persen lebih sedikit daripada bus diesel berukuran setara. Universitas telah menjadi jantung dari eksperimen transit otonom Singapura, yang sebelumnya telah membangun kota kecil untuk uji coba bus tanpa pengemudi. Keterlibatan NTU dalam proyek bersama Volvo 7900 dilakukan sejak awal 2018.Presiden NTU Subra Suresh mengatakan, tes dengan satu bus di kampus universitas dapat dimulai dalam beberapa minggu hingga berbulan-bulan, sebelum pindah ke jalan umum setelah mendapat pengesanan dari regulator. Dia berharap tes bisa diperpanjang ke jalan umum dalam satu tahun.“Bus kedua akan menjalani tes di depot bus kota. Kendaraan 12 meter (39 kaki) dapat mengangkut hingga 80 penumpang dan merupakan bus listrik otonom ukuran penuh pertama di dunia,” katanya.“Ini adalah jenis kendaraan yang akan digunakan operator secara komersial dan itulah sebabnya ini merupakan tonggak sejarah,” ujar Håkan Agnevall, presiden Volvo Buses.rada diSingapura berada di peringkat kedua secara global dalam indeks yang menilai keterbukaan dan kesiapsiagaan negara untuk kendaraan otonom. Sebelumnya, pada November 2018 kemarin, Singapura membuat kota mini seluas dua hektare dan berisikan kendaraan tanpa awak.Baca juga: Bus Tanpa Awak Segera Beroperasi di TaiwanDi kota mini, Nanyang Technological University sedang menguji sebuah minibus tanpa sopir dengan 15 penumpang yang dibangun oleh perusahaan Perancis Navya SAS, dimana peneliti dapat beroperasi menggunakan perangkat lunak otonom atau secara manual melalui handset gaya video game.

Levski rots inside – Gol

first_imgIn difficult times, people usually come together. Problems unite them in the name of a common cause. There are always exceptions. In “Levski” everyone has been looking in a different direction for a long time, and the moments of unanimity are very fleeting. It happened once when Nasko Sirakov asked for the shares, and the second time when the club called on its fans to be a general sponsor for an indefinite period of time. But the hard times at Georgi Asparuhov Stadium are not over, and the storm is already seriously destroying the “blue” ship, in which passengers and crew cannot look at each other. In the week before the fiasco of “Gerena” with “Tsarsko Selo” (0: 1), which led to the weakest start in the history of “Levski” for the championship, the executive director Pavel Kolev was bombarded with a number of awkward questions from Lyubomir Kostadinov. One of Sector B’s torturers used social media to express his concerns publicly. There was no subsequent reaction from Kolev. The owner Nasko Sirakov did not come out to take a stand either. The rift in the relations at Georgi Asparuhov Stadium was also evident on the day of the match. During the match, supporters attacked coach Georgi Todorov. After the defeat, the experienced specialist, who long ago announced that he had taken on this role because of his good relations with Sirakov, was not obliged and in turn waved a finger at the people from the stands.His hint was clear: he would not withstand the criticism for long. At the same time, Todorov once again announced that there were not enough players and threw the ball to Wolf. The main argument of the specialist has its arguments, but given the expected sale and breakup of the current team, its composition looks more than decent. A month ago, the coach did not know who he would rely on at all for the start of the championship. In the end, only the protection was replaced. The attacking trio of Paulinho, Nigel Roberta and Stanislav Ivanov survived. For now. Stein Spiers is also in the squad. Whether the square in question is played at Gerena in the current situation is another question. But even without acknowledging it out loud, the results are indicative. There is no idea in Levski’s game. Perhaps the general problem is that the club as a whole lacks an action plan. In the century-old team, the coach is temporary. As well as at least half of the incumbents. They are for a while and will soon be gone. If at the beginning of the century during the construction of the “blue” dream team of Murray Stoilov was working on “Plan 2007”, now there is no strategy at all. Fans go so far as to attack their players, as was the case with Stanislav Ivanov after the lost match with Tsarsko Selo. A kind of climax in the rupture of the “blue” relationship. Apparently, “Levski” is rotting inside just like the apple that Asen Bukarev talked about 2 years ago. But now everything is more painful, because the problems are visible – finances, results, quarrels, behind-the-scenes interests. And all this behind the facade: “Levski” age-old, clean, transparent, loved, unshakable and something else. Obviously not so wonderful.Vladimir Ivanov, “Trud”last_img read more
