In what gives a boost to safe driving, Kyocera Corporation has developed a 3D displaying system, which alerts drivers through various visual warnings such as pedestrians and other cars in blind spots by detecting them early with its original auto-sensing system.

A blind spot in a vehicle is an area around the vehicle that cannot be directly observed by the driver while at the controls, under existing circumstances.

Kyocera exhibited its newly developed technology at the Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies, “CEATEC Japan 2018,” recently held in Makuhari Messe, Tokyo.

A car equipped with this newly developed 3D displaying system also provides up-to-date traffic signal information by linking with different roadside processing units.

Kyocera Corporation official Kaoru Kusafuka said, “Drivers can get lots of information thanks to the 3D displaying system without having to use excessive eyesight checks while driving and that will lead to reducing stress

By developing various assistance features for drivers, such as giving off visual signals beforehand for a pedestrian approaching the car from its left, we can keep drivers from hitting that person while their attention is, maybe, fully taken by a car approaching from the right side.”

“So, we can reduce driving risks in that way. Another thing is that by gaining traffic signal information beforehand, we can opt for the best route which can lead to less carbon dioxide emissions and less fuel being wasted. So, we can promote an eco-friendly society in that way,” added Kusafuka.

The product, “Amcena” from Kyocera received Minister Award, one of most prestigious awards within this field given in Japan. “We call this new antenna “Amcena”. On the metallic surface, antenna normally does not work well due to structural issues. We thought we can accelerate the field of the internet of things (IoT) by overcoming this challenge and we have finally achieved our goal,” said Nobuki Hiramatsu, another official at Kyocera Corporation.


“Since this is harmless to the human body, it can be used for wearable devices as well. As for our future vision, this new technology can be potentially used in diverse fields such as for factory facilities by collecting vibration data to detect and predict facilities’ malfunctions, or basic infrastructures like steel bridges and roads, as well as bicycles and automobile,” added Hiramatsu.

Fallout 76 Release Date, System Requirements, Preload, Download Size, and Everything Else You Need to Know

Fallout 76 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC is the ninth entry in the long-running post-apocalyptic role-playing game series. It’s also the first Fallout game to be a completely online experience, though how reliable Fallout 76 servers would be at launch remains to be seen, as the limited Fallout 76 beta events haven’t been enough of a test. Nonetheless, from Fallout 76’s preload date to what editions are on offer, here’s what you need to know.

Fallout 76 release date

The Fallout 76 release date is November 14 internationally for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Fallout 76 system requirements

The kind of PC you’ll need to play Fallout 76 doesn’t seem to be too taxing from a GPU or memory standpoint, being fairly in-line with what you can expect from most modern video games in 2018. That said, we won’t be surprised to see PCs below the minimum threshold of an Intel Core i5-6600K play it just fine by tweaking the game’s settings.

Fallout 76 PC system requirements (minimum)

Requires 64-bit processor and operating system

  • OS: Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5 GHz /AMD Ryzen 3 1300X 3.5 GHz or equivalent
  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 780 3GB/AMD Radeon R9 285 2GB or equivalent
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • Storage: 60GB of free disk space

Fallout 76 PC system requirements (recommended)

Requires 64-bit processor and operating system

  • OS: Windows 7/8.1/10
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-4790 3.6 GHz / AMD Ryzen 5 1500X 3.5 GHz
  • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 970 4GB / AMD R9 290X 4GB
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • Storage: 60GB of free disk space

Fallout 76 preload
Unlike most new releases, it doesn’t seem like you can preload Fallout 76. PS4 and Xbox One players will have to download the official launch version of Fallout 76 on November 14. This is regardless of you playing the beta or not. PC players on the other hand, will not have to download a separate version of the game if they played the beta.

Fallout 76 download size

According to a listing for the game on the Xbox Store, the Fallout 76 download size is 45.28GB on the Xbox One. At the moment PS4 and PC Fallout 76 download sizes are unknown, but it’s safe to say they should be around the same.

Fallout 76 day one patch
Like most big budget games, Fallout 76 has a day one patch. And unlike most big budget games, the Fallout 76 day one patch is bigger than the game download size, clocking in at 54GB.


Fallout 76 editions

Aside from the standard edition of Fallout 76, there are two special variants of the game as well. These are the Fallout 76 Tricentennial Edition and the Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition.

Fallout 76 Tricentennial Edition

  • Tricentennial Power Armor customisation for the T-51, T-45, T-60, and X-01 Power Armors
  • Tricentennial weapon customisation for the 10MM Pistol, Hatchet, and Laser Rifle
  • Spectacularly Handsome Vault Boy mascot head
  • Patriotic Uncle Sam outfit
  • Celebratory Vault Boy saluting emote
  • First-Class Tricentennial Workshop posters
  • Tricentennial commemorative photo frame

Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition

  • Full-scale wearable T-51 Power Armor helmet with voice modulator, LED headlamp, and VATS sound effects
  • West Tek canvas carrying bag 21×21-inch glow-in-the-dark map of the West Virginia setting,
  • 24 Fallout figurines
  • Special Tricentennial steel book with bonus in-game items from the Fallout 76 Tricentennial Edition

Fallout 76 price
The Fallout 76 price is Rs. 4,000 on the PS4 and Xbox One if you pre-order it on disc and starts at Rs. 5,600 digitally ($60 in the US). The PC version of Fallout 76 is $60 (around Rs. 4,300) and is available as a digital download via ‪‬, Bethesda’s PC game client. As for the Fallout 76 Tricentennial Edition price, it’s $80 in the US and Rs.7,000 in India. The Fallout 76 Power Armour Edition is $199 in the US with Bethesda’s distributor, E-xpress having no plans to bring it to India.

Is Fallout 76 coming to Steam?

The PC release of Fallout 76 will not be on Steam. If you want to play Fallout 76 on PC, you’ll need the installer. This wouldn’t be the first time Bethesda has decided against a Steam release for its games. In the past, The Elder Scrolls Legends and Fallout Shelter weren’t at Steam first. Instead they were available via Bethesda’s own launcher and were put on Steam later.

Fallout 76 gameplay
Much like the Fallout 76 beta, Fallout 76 starts with you creating your character from a host of preset and custom options allowing you to modify your look before throwing you into the game proper. Fallout 76 takes place 50 years after nuclear war has ravaged the US and you’re tasked with rebuilding civilisation. Set in West Virginia, you can take on the harsh, post-nuclear environs with friends or choose to go solo.

Quests are doled out via computer terminals and every time you’re directed to find another character, they’re already dead. At least until you run into AI-controlled enemies or find yourself squaring off against other human players. Though its repercussions were few. Yes, we did lose our items, but we kept our gear like guns and armour. Respawning and collecting what we lost was easy and death as a whole felt painless because the penalty for being killed was negligible. It will be interesting to see if its gameplay has any major changes when the full game hits on November 14.

Are you looking forward to Fallout 76? Let us know in the comments.

FIFA Mobile Gets New Season With Better Graphics, Team Chemistry System, Head to Head Multiplayer Mode

FIFA Mobile, one of the popular mobile games by EA Sports, has been updated on Android and iOS with a new season. The new update brings a list of much-awaited tweaks, including a “Head to Head” multiplayer mode as well as a new Team Chemistry system that boosts your starting lineup when you select players from the same real-world club, league, or nationality. Also, there is an upgraded gameplay engine that is touted to deliver a more realistic and responsive experience. EA has also made player likenesses look better than ever with a fresh set of star heads, authentic boots, and signature goal celebrations.

The new season of FIFA Mobile has an all-new gameplay engine that brings a “dramatically overhauled” animation system and artificial intelligence (AI) controlled players who play much more intelligently and realistically on both sides over the previous version. There are also better-looking players with authentic faces of many of the global football stars. EA has also uplifted the animation fidelity. This is claimed to help deliver an experience “with more passion and fluidity than any other football game available on mobile devices”.

Further, there are improvements on the part of celebrations as well. The company says that between dabs, backflips, and other moves, goal celebrations throughout the gameplay are authentic. Detailing is also there when it comes to visuals, such as the dresses and boots of the players. Moreover, off the pitch scenes, menus, and player items have been redesigned from the scratch to make FIFA Mobile an interesting game for the existing FIFA fans.

FIFA Mobile has also received a new Team Chemistry system that is designed to boost your starting lineup when you include players from the same real-world team, league, or country. You can experience the new addition and be able to build a team of strong contenders once you pick a few players from a popular real-world team.

If the new Team Chemistry system is not something that persuades you to install the latest FIFA Mobile on your Android or iOS device, EA has offered a real-time Head to Head multiplayer mode. This means you can play a tournament with competitors around the globe in a real time. You can also opt for the Amateur and Pro Divisions to play a match against an AI Trainer to improve your skills on the pitch.

EA has provided a list of minimum specs requirements for the Head to Head mode. There are models such as the iPhone 6 and later, iPad Air 2 and later, iPad mini 4 and later, Samsung Galaxy S6 and later, Galaxy Note 5 and later, Google Pixel and later, and OnePlus 3T and later among other devices in the list of recommended devices. Furthermore, the company points out that devices based on Snapdragon 2xx, Snapdragon 400 and 410, and Snapdragon 600 don’t meet the minimum specs.

European-Japanese Space Mission BepiColombo To Mercury Launched To Explore Origin Of Solar System

Unmanned European-Japanese space mission, BepiColombo, blasted off today morning from French Guiana.


Is Mercury’s core liquid or solid, and why — on the smallest planet in our solar system — is it so big? What can the planet closest to the Sun tell us about how our solar system came into being?

An unmanned European-Japanese space mission, dubbed BepiColombo, blasted off early Saturday morning from French Guiana, to probe these and other mysteries.

“BepiColombo is coming like a white knight with better and more precise data,” said Alain Doressoundiram, an astronomer at the Paris Observatory.

“To understand how Earth was formed, we need to understand how all rocky planets formed,” including Venus and Mars, he told AFP.

“Mercury stands apart and we don’t know why.”

First, however, the suite of instruments on board the Ariane 5 rocket will have to travel seven years and nine million kilometres (5.6 million miles) to reach their destination.

In a statement after the launch, ArianeGroup said the satellite had successfully escaped Earth’s gravity field and was beginning its long journey where it will reach speeds of up to 40,000 kilometres (25,000 miles) an hour.

According to Pierre Bousquet, an engineer at France’s National Centre for Space Research and head of the French team contributing to the mission, Mercury is “abnormally small,” leading to speculation that it survived a massive collision in its youth.

“A huge crater visible on its surface could be the scar left over from that encounter,” Bousquet told AFP. Finding out if this is true is on BepiColombo’s “to do” list.

Going hot and cold
This scenario would explain why Mercury’s core accounts for a whopping 55 percent of its mass, compared to 30 percent for Earth.

Mercury is also the only rocky planet orbiting the Sun beside our own to have a magnetic field.

Magnetic fields are generated by a liquid core but given its size, Mercury’s should have grown cold and solid by now, as did Mars.

This anomaly might be due to some feature of the core’s composition, something BepiColombo’s instruments will measure with much greater precision than has been possible so far.

On its surface, Mercury is a planet of extremes, vacillating between hot days of about 430 degrees Celsius (more than 800 degrees Fahrenheit) to super-frosty nights of minus 180C (minus 290F).

Those days and nights last nearly three Earth months each.

Earlier missions have detected evidence of ice in the deepest recesses of the planet’s polar craters.

Scientists speculate that this may have accumulated from comets crashing onto Mercury’s surface.

“If the presence of ice is confirmed, it means that some of those water samples date back nearly to the origin of the solar system,” Doressoundiram said.

Lashed by solar winds
Mercury is 58 million kilometres (36 million miles) from the Sun, nearly three times closer than Earth.

“The planet is whipped by solar winds,” a constant torrent of ionised particles bombarding the surface at 500 kilometres per second, said Bousquet.

The scientists will be able to study the impact of these winds — 10 times stronger than the ones hitting Earth’s atmosphere — on Mercury’s magnetic field.

The BepiColombo mission will deploy two spacecraft. The Mercury Planet Orbiter, built by ESA, will investigate planet’s surface and interior composition.

The Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter, made by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, will study the region of space around the planet that is influenced by its magnetic field.

The mission will also look for tectonic activity, and seek to understand why spectroscopic observations show no iron even if it is thought to be one of the planet’s major component elements.

Compared to Mars, Venus, and Saturn, Mercury has barely been explored. Only two spacecraft have ever paid it a visit.

NASA’s Mariner 10 did three flybys in 1974 and 1975, providing the first up-close images. More than 30 years later, NASA’s Messenger did the same, before settling into orbit around Mercury in 2011.

The new mission is named after Giuseppe (Bepi) Colombo, a brilliant Italian mathematician and engineer who first understood the relationship between Mercury’s rotation and orbit.

Haryana Roadways Employees On Strike Against Privatisation Of State’s Transport System.

Haryana Roadways employees begin their strike against privatisation of the state’s transport system.


The Haryana Roadways employees went on a two-day strike on Tuesday to protest the state government’s decision to introduce 700 private buses in the state.

Despite the Essential Services Maintenance Act (ESMA) being in force, the roadways workers went on strike and staged sit-ins at several depots across the state, including in Rohtak, Sirsa, Hisar, Ambala and Chandigarh, under the banner of Haryana Roadways Karamchari Joint Action Committee.

The ESMA prohibits strikes by employees in an essential service.

The agitating employees said they would not allow the government to launch 700 private buses in the state as it would lead to privatisation of the transport department. They also alleged that the move is an attempt to favour some chosen few.

“We want the Haryana government to withdraw its decision of introducing private buses in the state,” Haryana Roadways Workers Union general secretary Sarbat Singh Punia said.

He said the government should instead increase the number of buses under the roadways department.

Mr Punia said if the government does not immediately withdraw its decision, then the future course of action will be decided at an emergency meeting by the striking employees on Wednesday.

“Our strike was supported by many other employees’ union bodies as well,” he said.

“Despite the government’s move to crush our strike by imposing the ESMA, ordering suspension of many workers and rounding up 176 of our workers and leaders, over 4,000 buses remained off roads,” he added.

The Punjab and Haryana High Court Monday directed the Haryana government to ensure strict implementation of the ESMA during the two-day strike called by the state’s Roadways Employees Union.

Mr Punia said rather than inviting the striking employees for talks, the government was adamant on its decision.

There are about 19,000 employees in Haryana Roadways, which has a fleet of 4,100 buses in which nearly 12 lakh passengers travel daily.

The strike inconvenienced thousands of commuters.

The Haryana Roadways buses also travel to other states including Jammu and Kashmir, Delhi, Rajasthan, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Punjab.

Police personnel were deployed at several bus depots in Haryana to prevent any untoward incident and buses plied with police escort at some roadways depots including Bhiwani, Jhajjar and Gurgaon.

As a precautionary measure, authorities imposed Section 144 CrPC, prohibiting gathering of more than four persons, across all Haryana Roadways’ depots.

The state government has refused to accept the demand of the striking employees.

In August also, the Haryana Roadways employees had gone on a day-long strike to protest the government’s decision to introduce private buses in the state.

New System Will Help Warn Of Falling Air Quality, Says Harsh Vardhan

New Delhi: 

Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan today said Indian scientists along with their counterparts from the US and Finland have developed a mechanism that will soon be able to forewarn depletion in air quality.

The Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology in Pune, the India Meteorological Department and the meteorology centre in Noida will work together on the air quality issue, Harsh Vardhan said. These three institutions will help to calculate, take measures and give a three-day warning about depleting air quality.

The air quality in Delhi has been deteriorating for the last few days. According to data released by the National Air Quality Index, the AQI was between moderate and poor on Monday with a drop in airspeed.

“We follow a ‘graded response action plan’ under which various steps are taken keeping in mind the degree to which the air quality depletes. There are 40-45 action plans in it,” Harsh Vardhan said.

In past years with the help of the environment ministry, Air Quality index or AQI was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2015. The AQI uses eight to 10 parameters to judge the overall air quality which is then further graded as moderate, poor, good and so on.

“Last year, the government allotted Rs 1,100 crore following depletion in the air quality. Out of this, Rs 500 crore has already been disbursed for the Delhi-Haryana region. PM10 (presence of particles with diameter less than 10 mm) and PM2.5 (presence of particles with diameter less than 2.5 mm) levels have diminished as compared to previous years, and we have also kept a thorough check on stubble-burning,” Harsh Vardhan said.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 preload date

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout map

The Call of Duty Twitter account posted an image of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout map, showcasing the layout and the name of several areas. With the fan-favourite ‘Nuketown Island’ off to one side, other parts of the Blackout map have generic names such as ‘Construction Site’, ‘Estates’, ‘Train Station’, ‘Hydro Dam’, ‘Firing Range’, ‘Fracking Tower’, ‘Factory’, ‘Turbine’, ‘Array’, ‘Asylum’, ‘Cargo Docks’, and ‘Rivertown’. Some of them have been maps in previous Call of Duty games.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout player count
During the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout beta, the battle royale mode scaled well with developer Treyarch first capping it at 80 players, followed by 88, and finally 100. No official word has been given on the final Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout player count just yet, though we won’t be surprised to see it stick to the 100 player cap simply to allow for parity with PUBG and Fortnite.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 frame rate
On PC, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout frame rate will be limited to 120 frames per second (fps) at launch. Treyarch plans to raise it 144fps when ‘servers are stable’ and eventually remove the frame rate cap. As for the other modes – Zombies and multiplayer, they will have an uncapped frame rate on PC. The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 frame rate for PS4, Xbox One, PS4 Pro, and Xbox One X is 60fps in all modes.
