Now these drones will not only deliver autonomously, they will refuel themselves, thus shaving what can be life-saving minutes off the drug drop off process, and freeing up the care-giver to focus on their primary charge.
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) held a meeting this week to discuss the results of its investigation into a 2016 crash in which a Tesla Model S with Autopilot engaged collided with a transport truck, resulting in the death of the Tesla’s driver Joshua Brown.
The NTSB report follows a finding earlier this year from NHTSA that found no evidence that Tesla’s Autopilot software didn’t work as intended. The NTSB similarly found that the system operated as intended – but also cited the driver’s inattentiveness, a result of his excess reliance on the Autopilot tech, was a cause in the death.
Enjoying your vacation? How can you, when you have that nagging urge to check your email, and the added anxiety of returning to a mountain of email upon your return?
Arianna Huffington’s wellness company, Thrive Global, adopted a simple solution: During the time an employee is on vacation, new emails are deleted and the sender is urged to callback later.
“Thank you for your email. I am out of the office … please email me again when I return as this email will be deleted“
Their tool, Thrive Away, takes the pressure off employees to respond to the emails received during vacation. But you don’t need to work at Thrive to employ this strategy. Here are instructions on how to set up your own Delete-and-Reply VacationAutoResponder using Outlook.
