Audi trying to Humanize its Autonomous Car

Audi trying to Humanize its Autonomous Car | Personal Injury Law by Paul H. Nathan, Esq. | Scoop.it

The latest update to Audi’s A7 autonomous prototype car, named Jack, adds human-like functionality to make the car seem less robotic.

Audi implemented the new functions to give trucks and other large vehicles more room when passing them on the road, alongside moving closer to the edge of the lane before turning signals on to show it wants to switch lanes, a familiar trait of human drivers.

See Also: Are cars self-driving Apple’s $1 billion stake in China’s Didi?

The goal, according to Audi, is to make the autonomous car drive “more naturally” on the road. While it might not be optimal in a world where all cars are autonomous, it should help drivers get more accustomed to the autonomous car and prevent accidents with human drivers.

Audi is setting up a list of personalities for the autonomous car as well, according toSlashGear, which include aggressive and passive options. This should make driving parents or other cautious individuals less of a farce, by changing the settings to slow down the drive and act more cautiously.

The German automaker is using HERE Maps to indicate different driver tendencies. It is also using the mapping service — which is purchased as part of automotive consortium from Nokia for $3 billion — to alert the autonomous car of traffic jams and growing congestion early.

Paul H. Nathan Law Offices's insight:

Audi has added human elements, like giving trucks more room and moving closer to the edge of a lane before turning on the blinkers, to its autonomous car.

Prince's siblings in court to divvy up his millions after legend's death

Prince's siblings in court to divvy up his millions after legend's death | Personal Injury Law by Paul H. Nathan, Esq. | Scoop.it

Five of Prince's six surviving siblings appeared in court Monday for the first hearing to start sorting out an estate certain to be worth millions, a task complicated because the star musician isn't known to have left a will.

In a hearing that lasted a little over 12 minutes, Carver County District Judge Kevin Eide formalized his appointment last week of Bremer Trust to handle matters involving the estate of Prince, who died suddenly last month at age 57.

Prince's sister, Tyka Nelson, requested the appointment so that the company can manage Prince's estate until an executor is named. Eide asked the packed courtroom whether anyone knew of a will, and the courtroom was silent. Lawyers for Bremer Trust said they hadn't found one but would keep looking.

Prince's death triggers a backlash of family and people seeking millions from his estate!

Shocking Brutality of this Woman’s Treatment Prompted a Judge to Award her $1.3m. | Personal Injury Law by Paul H. Nathan, Esq. | Scoop.it

A FEMALE road construction worker who was subjected to shocking sexual harassment at a Melbourne construction company has been awarded more than $1.3 million in personal injury damages by the Victorian Supreme Court.


Employees and subcontractors at Winslow Constructors verbally abused Kate Mathews who endured shocking treatment between August 2008 and July 2010 while working at the Marriott Waters estate in Lyndhurst.

The mistreatment of Ms Matthews included being slapped on the bottom, shown pornographic material and asked: “Would you do this?”


She was also called “useless”, a “spastic” and a “bimbo” while co-workers also grabbed her and pretended to perform sex acts on her.

One worker also said: “Anything that bleeds once a month should be shot.”


The court heard an appalling litany of sexual insults and appalling conduct directed at Ms Mathews.

What is a Diffuse Axonal Brain Injury?

What is a Diffuse Axonal Brain Injury? | Personal Injury Law by Paul H. Nathan, Esq. | Scoop.it

A diffuse axonal brain injury is a life-shattering form of a traumatic brain injury (TBI). “Axonal” refers to nerve fibers (“axons”) in the brain that are damaged or disrupted. “Diffuse” means that the injury is not localized. Instead, the injury is spread across a large part of the brain.

 

About half of all traumatic brain injuries are diffuse axonal injuries. They frequently lead to coma and “brain death.” A diffuse axonal injury is, in fact, the TBI that is most likely to result in a fatality. When an injury victim survives, the resulting brain damage often has a devastating impact upon the victim’s life.

 

Victims are entitled to seek compensation for everything they lose when another person’s carelessness causes their brain injury. Spouses and certain other family members are entitled to seek compensation when a loved one dies from a diffuse axonal brain injury that resulted from another person’s negligence.

A diffuse axonal brain injury is a life-shattering form of a traumatic brain injury (TBI). “Axonal” refers to nerve fibers in the brain that are damaged.

Thanksgiving Driving Statistics + Traffic Accidents

Thanksgiving Driving Statistics + Traffic Accidents | Personal Injury Law by Paul H. Nathan, Esq. | Scoop.it
Thanksgiving is usually one of the year’s deadliest weeks for traffic crashes. Between navigating unfamiliar roads, driving late at night or after having a few drinks, and the sheer fact that when traffic volume goes up, car crash numbers generally go up as well, it’s extremely important to drive safe and be careful over this long weekend (and throughout the entire holiday season). In fact, though many people believe that New Year’s Eve is the night when most drunk driving accidents occur, but they are wrong. Thanksgiving is the holiday that statistically has the largest number of drunk driving fatalities – and it’s by a landslide.
The Red Cross put together a great list of recommendations to help Thanksgiving travelers arrive safely at their destinations. Their list pretty much covers it all, so we thought we should share:

We bring up amazing Thanksgiving driving statistics that you may not be aware of. Believe it or not, there are many Thanksgiving traffic accidents.

Be careful on Holidays as Accidents and Deaths Increase!

Be careful on Holidays as Accidents and Deaths Increase! | Personal Injury Law by Paul H. Nathan, Esq. | Scoop.it

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Joseph S. Tofil was driving his ski boat while under the influence late Saturday night, when he hit a cabin cruiser just after the fireworks ended. Five people were on the cruiser, including a 4-month-old infant, and all of them sustained injuries. Another couple found themselves caught in the waves along a sand bar over the weekend, when their skiff capsized; the man drowned, but the woman received no apparent injuries.

The Department of Natural Resources reported 11 total boating incidents over the holiday weekend in Georgia waters, and 36 people were arrested on BUI charges. There’s no doubt that most, if not all, of those incidents could have been prevented, and many who were injured because of someone else’s negligence may already be searching for an experienced personal-injury lawyer in Atlanta.

Berkeley man identified as bicyclist killed in SF accident with Muni bus - SFGate

Berkeley man identified as bicyclist killed in SF accident with Muni bus - SFGate | Personal Injury Law by Paul H. Nathan, Esq. | Scoop.it

A 47-year-old Berkeley man was identified Monday as a bicyclist struck and killed by a Muni bus on Market Street in San Francisco Sunday afternoon, according to the city medical examiner.

Mark Heryer was riding on a silver mountain bike around 3:30 p.m. when he got caught between two Muni buses, fell to the pavement and ended up wedged underneath a westbound bus on Market Street near Battery Street, police said. The bicyclist died at the scene.

Heryer’s death remained under investigation Monday.

“The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency and its more than 5,000 employees, wish to express our deepest sympathies and condolences to the family and friends of the cyclist who lost his life in a bus collision along Market Street,” Ed Reiskin, SFMTA director of transportation, said in a statement.

About a half-hour after Sunday’s fatal crash, a 46-year-old female bicyclist was injured at Embarcadero and Chestnut Street when she was hit by a truck hauling a horse trailer, police said. The woman was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, but her condition was not immediately disclosed.

Several intersections on Market Street, including the one at Battery Street, are known as “high injury corridors,” according to the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition. During morning commute hours, Market Street is one of the city’s most popular routes for bicyclists, said coalition spokesman Chris Cassidy.

Cassidy said the two accidents involving bicyclists Sunday demonstrate the need for city officials to “redouble their efforts” to make streets safer for cyclists.

Bicycle Crash Checklist

Bicycle Crash Checklist | Personal Injury Law by Paul H. Nathan, Esq. | Scoop.it

If you are involved in a collision, it’s important to know the steps to follow to ensure that you receive fair response from the police and collect information you may need for future legal issues. Even if you are not injured, follow this checklist as injuries can come up later. For more detailed information, see details below.

IMMEDIATELY AFTER A CRASH
  • Tell the driver to stay until the police arrive. If they refuse to stay or don’t provide ID, get their and the car’s description, vehicle’s license plate # and state of issue.
  • Call (or ask someone to call) 911 and ask for the police to come to the scene.
  • Get name and contact info for any witnesses. Ask them to remain on the scene until police arrive, if possible.
  • Ask for the driver’s license and insurance card. Write down name, address, date of birth, and insurance information.
When the Police Arrive
  • Ask them to take an incident report (req’d for all bike collisions, SFPD General Order 9.02b).
  • Get reporting police officer’s name and badge number.
  • If you’ve been doored, ask the officer to cite the motorist for dooring (a violation of CVC 22517).
  • Ask the officers to speak to witnesses, if possible.
  • While a doctor’s report of your injury is important for insurance and/or legal action, you do not need to take an ambulance. If there is any complaint of pain, police must take an incident report (SFPD General Order 9.02b).
In the Days Soon After A Crash
  • Contact witnesses to ask them to email you their version of what happened while it’s fresh in their mind. Email yourself a description of what happened with relevant information and capture as much detail as you can.
  • Take good photos of your injuries and any bike damage. Get an estimate from a bike shop before making repairs.
  • Request a copy of the incident report from the police.

CA Equal Pay Bill for Women, may be toughest in US! | Personal Injury Law by Paul H. Nathan, Esq. | Scoop.it

California's new Fair Pay Act, which awaits Gov. Jerry Brown's signature, may be the nation's most aggressive attempt yet to close the salary gap between men and women. Supporters said the legislation, passed unanimously by the California Senate on Monday, closes loopholes that prevented enforcement of existing anti-discrimination law. The bill ensures that male and female employees who perform "substantially similar" work receive equal pay, even if their job titles aren't the same or if they work in different offices for the same employer.
