Robot Yape bakal ubah kaedah penghantaran bungkusan



CREMONA: Sebuah robot baharu bakal memasuki dunia penghantaran bungkusan.

Yape, sebuah robot yang dibuat di Itali, ialah sebuah kenderaan pandu sendiri yang boleh menghantar bungkusan kecil dan barangan di mana-mana lokasi dalam bandar.

Yape bermaksud ‘Your Autonomous Pony Express’ beroperasi menggunakan aplikasi telefon pintar.

Pengguna hanya perlu memasukkan maklumat penghantaran dan alamat sebelum menunggu Yape datang untuk mengambil bungkusan.

Robot ini beroperasi menggunakan elektrik dan lebih jimat tenaga berbanding kereta atau motosikal.

Jurutera Simone Fiorenti adalah pereka bersama dan ketua teknikal bagi Yape yang berpangkalan di Milan.

Menurut beliau, robot itu direka memandangkan peningkatan pembelian dalam talian dan juga khidmat penghantaran makanan.

“Terdapat beberapa kebaikan menggunakan Yape, antaranya ialah kebolehan menghantar bungkusan di dalam bandar dengan tepat.

“Yape dapat sampai di destinasi dalam masa beberapa minit, mampu untuk beroperasi selama 24 jam sehari dalam apa keadaan cuaca sekalipun. Ini kerana ia dipandu sendiri di kaki lima dan laluan berbasikal untuk mengelakkan kemalangan,” jelas Fiorenti.

Sebaik sahaja robot itu tiba di alamat penghantaran, ia akan mengesan pengguna melalui algoritma pengesan muka.

Selepas proses tersebut berjaya, barulah pengguna dapat membuka penutup untuk memasukkan bungkusan yang ingin dihantar.

Tambah Fiorenti, matlamat pasukannya sekarang adalah untuk mengurangkan kos pembuatan Yape kepada antara 5,000 hingga 10,000 euro.

Walaupun beliau tidak dapat mendedahkan kos sebenar pembuatan robot tersebut, Fiorenti berkata ia kini berharga di antara 50,000 hingga 60,000 euro ekoran penggunaan sistem pengesan dan komponen yang mahal.

Pepijat Pada iPhone X Membuatkan Panggilan Telefon Tidak Boleh Diangkat – Amanz


Pepijat ialah masalah normal yang semakin kerap dilihat kerana sistem operasi yang semakin kompleks. Bagi sesetengah pemilik iPhone X, pepijat yang muncul pada peranti mereka membuatkan ia gagal berfungsi sebagai telefon dengan sempurna.

Menerusi forum rasmi Apple, pengguna melaporkan gagal menjawab panggilan telefon kerana skrin tidak menyala apabila menerima panggilan. Skrin memerlukan 6-8 saat untuk menyala apabila menerima panggilan yang melambatkan proses menjawab telefon.

Masalah mula muncul sejak Disember lalu dan kini ratusan pengguna mendakwa mengalami masalah yang sama. Melakukan tetapan semula pada peranti hanya menyelesaikan masalah untuk seketika sebelum ia muncul semula. Kami secara peribadi masih belum menemui masalah ini. Pihak Apple masih belum memberikan kenyataan rasmi setakat ini.

KR1M 2.0 to sell branded products at low prices


KR1M

MO,5/2/2018, TEMERLOH: At least 50 household products with famous brands will be sold at the newly-launched Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia (KR1M) 2.0, but at lower prices, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. A review after the closure of the previous version of KR1M last year found that consumers were still more interested in buying “branded” goods, he said, “Thus, KR1M 2.0 will not be selling off-brand products. For a start, KR1M 2.0 will offer four essential goods at low prices,” he said after launching the new initiative at TMG Mall here yesterday.

“There are at least 50 other stock keeping unit products that are being sold at competitive prices. For example, 1kg of Milo is sold at RM17.80 compared to the normal price of RM17.99,” he said. The four essential items are sugar, cooking oil, flour and rice. Najib said 1kg of sugar would be sold at RM2.85 compared to the normal price of RM2.95, 1kg of flour at RM1.30 compared to RM1.35 and 10kg of Bunga Raya 5% SST rice at RM24.90 compared to RM26. However, cooking oil will be maintained at RM2.50 per kg due to the item being subsidised.

Another difference with KR1M 2.0, the Prime Minister added, was that it would no longer operate in specialised outlets. “Instead, it will be located within the premises of KR1M 2.0 partners. There are already 51 KR1M 2.0 operating at present and more will be opened until there are 3,000 outlets nationwide within three years. “KR1M 2.0 does not only benefit consumers but also participants of the scheme since they will get more customers,” he said. Perbadanan Nasional Bhd (PNS) has been appointed to spearhead KR1M 2.0 by collaborating with strategic partners in implementing the new initiative.

Tunas Manja Group and KK Super Mart are two retailers that PNS has started working with. Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin said discussions were being held to add another anchor retailer while smaller business owners would be appointed as associates. He said more stock keeping unit products would be added from time to time. “These are not the off-brand products from before. These are actual branded products sold cheaper under the scheme,” he said.

Asked on how the ministry would convince entrepreneurs to participate in the scheme when it came to the profitability aspect, Hamzah said the advantage of KR1M 2.0 was that it would attract more customers who are drawn to the lower prices.
