2021 Mercedes S Class – all new Safety Systems

Reading Time: 2 minutes

As you’d expect, the new Mercedes S-Class comes with virtually every safety feature that Mercedes-Benz currently offers. The list includes automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, active steering assist, lane-keep assist, lane-change assist, traffic sign recognition, front and rear cross-traffic alert, and active blind-spot monitoring.

The brand-new for 2021 is hands-off recognition, which means you don’t need to move the steering wheel for the car to know you have control – simply put your hands on it. Also new for 2021 is the addition of standard Pre-Safe Impulse Control.

A carryover from SUVs like the GLE and GLS and a facet of the E-Active Body Control adaptive suspension (essentially active anti-roll bars that draw on the 48-volt system to eliminate body roll), Pre-Safe Impulse Control can detect an oncoming vehicle from either side and raise the S-Class slightly to lessen the brunt of a potential collision.

The S-Class also offers a special blind-spot warning for drivers exiting their vehicles, and is the first car to offer rear-seat airbags to protect second-row passengers from a head-on collision, as well as a special blind-spot warning for drivers exiting their vehicles. Also integrated into those active safety features are the new ambient lighting fixtures, which are able to reinforce warnings visually.

Another carryover to the new S-Class is the traditional PIN entry option on the driver’s side door. But joining it for 2021 are three new identification measures to make sure your S-Class is safer than ever: fingerprint (located inside, next to the hazard light button), face, and voice recognition. And all three of those options can reportedly also be used for in-car purchases.

We all hope cars will be safer and safer, leading to lessening collisions.

RTX 3090 new gpu era

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Yesterday (24.10.2020) RTX3090 has been officially released and tests showed the performance of the new GPU which presented the potential to be a game-changer. While for most of us gaming or watching movies in 4k is still unachievable. The RTX 3090 with some additional help from AI techniques can achieve 8k 60fps gaming in many AAA titles. The best explanation of what the dlss is Nvidia gave themselves. “The DLSS team first extracts many aliased frames from the target game, and then for each one, we generate a matching “perfect frame” using either super-sampling or accumulation rendering. These paired frames are fed to NVIDIA’s supercomputer. The supercomputer trains the DLSS model to recognize aliased inputs and generate high-quality anti-aliased images that match the “perfect frame” as closely as possible. We then repeat the process, but this time we train the model to generate additional pixels rather than applying AA. This has the effect of increasing the resolution of the input. Combining both techniques enables the GPU to render the full monitor resolution at higher frame rates.”

It brings the ai and self-learning technics to personal computers and casual usage of it. That is a significant step forward in making AI-ish technics more understandable globally. Nvidia as a company is massively engaged in developing ai technique to improve everyday pc usage and in the future, such software improvements can mean more than the raw power of the components.
A case that shows the Nvidia capabilities is the fact that the new Mercedes S class uses their chipsets for “autonomic driving” and safety features but that is a whole bigger story.
