DeepBlue Technology Launches Autonomous "Smart Panda Bus" to Bring Bus Rapid Transit to the Next Level

SHANGHAI, Sept.3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — DeepBlue Technology, a fast-growing leading company in the top tier of the Artificial Intelligence Industry, has launched the  “Smart Panda Bus”, one of the most efficient autonomous driving buses in the world.

Its design has been inspired by one of China’s most iconic symbols, the panda bear. It is equipped with Deepblue’s signature autonomous driving technology, computer vision, hand palm recognition and an environmentally friendly electric engine. It aims to provide an out of this world experience by combining unmanned intelligent transportation with an AI voice system that allows customers to interact with the bus.

Nowadays, China’s urban traffic density is exponentially increasing as the population grows. Subway projects are also facing many challenges due to the large dimensions and cost of the construction work involved. Urban areas in big cities, like Shanghai and Beijing, are suffering from traffic jams and pedestrian congestion, making DeepBlue autonomous driving bus rapid transit (BRT) a more attractive option. Autonomous driving BRT has the power to lead urban development as it offers a faster and more comfortable experience, allowing Chinese commuters to save time on a daily basis.

Even though the development of the bus rapid transit (BRT) has been present in the international scene for a while, autonomous driving vehicles are still at an early stage of development. As a new public transportation method, the structure of the current Chinese transportation system will have to accommodate the development of closed safe trails to allow for the autonomous driving of vehicles like the Panda Bus. For instance, Shanghai has started making some structural changes by implementing several BRT pilot projects that aim to improve the public traffic conditions in central urban areas. DeepBlue’s Smart Panda Bus will bring BRT to the next level.

DeepBlue Technology has integrated its latest technologies into the Panda Bus in a quest for the development of the transportation method of the future. It aims to optimize users’ experience by offering solutions that will help save time by multitasking, being able to carry out several activities while commuters travel comfortably. Thanks to a strong sales network , the Deepblue Smart Panda Buses have already been sold in more than 200 cities across China and 500 cities all over the world.

Letv Zero65 Wins the Gold Award of IFA Product Technical Innovation Award for Technology Integration Innovation

BERLIN, Sept. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — On August 31, Berlin time, Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin, or IFA, the largest consumer electronics exhibition in Europe, was held as scheduled. At the same time, the results of IFA Product Technical Innovation Award were also announced. Letv won the “Design and Technology Integration Innovation Gold Award” in 2018.

IFA is one of the biggest and most influential consumer electronics exhibitions in the world. It is an important stage for global industry giants to demonstrate their strengths and the image of technical innovation. IFA attracts many well-known technical companies, top media as well as hundreds of thousands of spectators from around the world every year.

IFA Product Technical Innovation Award, as the highlight of the IFA exhibition, is co-sponsored by German Industry & Commerce Co., Ltd and International Data Group (IDG). The appraisal for this award focuses on the unique product appeal of the consumer electronics and the technological innovation power of the brand. The selection result consists of 60% product evaluation score + 30% professional review score + 10% online voting. It is a comprehensive review and authoritative evaluation of the global consumer electronics industry, so the intensity of competition is self-evident.

The award-winning product model this time is the “Smart Screen” Zero65 series. Zero65 breaks through the traditional TV design form, adopts an integrated design that ensures the same thickness of the TV, minimizes space occupation, and greatly simplifies the structure. The model is also characteristic of an artificial intelligence operating system, smarter AI interactions, and excellent audio and image quality performances.

It is worth noting that Zero65 is a deep integration of smart home, and it supports the interconnection, interoperability and mutual control of smart home devices between multiple devices and in multiple scenarios. This device no longer only carries the “TV” function, but will also become an important entry point in the future smart home and a “smart screen” for future families.

Mr. Wang Zhi, COO of Lerong Zhixin, Letv’s smart TV subsidiary, said at the award ceremony: In fact, we have been insisting on innovation over the past year, we believe in the quality achieved by details and create exquisite products. This is also how Letv stays true to the mission. Throughout the entire television industry, ‘competition in prices’ have been like a ‘prisoner’s predicament’, consuming the overall interests and not benefiting self-development. Therefore, even in very difficult circumstances, we still have not slackened; instead, we still insist on high-quality, high-grade products, paying more attention to users’ consumption needs and experience and providing users with higher value products and services.”

With the advent of the era of consumption upgrade, the competition of new products and new technologies in the color TV market will become more intense. The technical competition will become the key to the competition among manufacturers and the breakthrough point of profit improvement. The fact that Letv has won at IFA and is loved by consumers around the world once again proves that Letv is driving technology development with technological innovations, transforming technological advantages into product-leading concept advantages, and the return of Letv is really worth looking forward to.

The award-winning product will be commercially available in Mainland China in October.

People’s Insurance Company of China (PICC), one of the largest insurers globally with $126 billion total assets is opting to embrace blockchain technology with the help of DNV GL and VeChain

SINGAPORE and SHANGHAI, China, Sept. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — People’s Insurance Company of China (PICC) enters into a partnership relationship with DNV GL and VeChain to bring digital transformation to the insurance industry.

(PRNewsfoto/VeChain)

Insurance companies use legacy claim management systems that produce overwhelming paper trails on insufficiently validated data that make up the current policy underwriting process. The inefficiencies within data collection, verification, and auditing cause policies to be placed on bad actors leading to price increases on the behalf of all policy owners. PICC believes that blockchain technology can bring digital transformation, resulting in reduced turnaround time, premiums, prevent fraud and improve KYC compliance and claim experience. The realization of advanced IoT devices and smart contracts within this industry will potentially bring “instant compensation” for the companies producing a much more profitable business model.

The blockchain solutions designed by PICC come from a partnership with DNV GL and  VeChain. These solutions will bring digital transformation across the entirety of PICC. By partnering with DNV GL and VeChain, PICC can provide robust assured solutions that protect  user data, distribute ownership, and enhance existing artificial intelligence. These solutions will do so without having to educate PICC’s clientele on blockchain technology while still offering the maximum benefits the technology provides.

Sunny Lu, Co-founder at VeChain said that, “Collaborating with PICC expands our business within the insurance industry. We are confident we will provide great service and products to PICC, together with DNV GL.”

PICC chose VeChain because of their existing solutions with DNV GL catering to real problems within businesses and governments. VeChain’s use of their public blockchain, VeChainThor, provides enterprises with the tools, securities, and governance to properly control their assets while collaborating across multiple verticals, industries, and even countries. By merging this technology with the assurance services of DNV GL, PICC is set to expand their current offerings, bringing true digital transformation to a now stagnant industry.

George Kang, CEO at DNV GL Business Assurance Greater China Region added that, “The role DNV GL plays is to ensure data integrity from the business operation perspective. In conjunction with VeChainThor Platform, we will provide a robust digital trust platform to assist PICC with enhanced data management and efficient data processing.”

PICC believes they will derive new competitive advantages for their offerings now assured by DNV GL. VeChain will initially provide solutions for pre-selected use cases that enable PICC to expand upon the base technology. DNV GL’s globally-approved role as an independent third-party assurer for all provisions will aid in the firm’s expansion in blockchain-based solutions. The combined collaborative efforts of this partnership will create new value propositions and onboard existing PICC clients and competitors to a broader collaborative ecosystem that benefits everyone.
