China’s 100 Richest 2021: Collective Wealth Climbs To Nearly $1.5 Trillion Amid Tumult

Posted by in categories: education, energy, government, policy, transportation

It’s been a tumultuous 12 months for mainland China’s richest. Shifts in government policy covering the education and tech industries, along with worries about real estate debt, led to many of the country’s largest private-sector companies experiencing steep share declines. A government push to promote “common prosperity” saw tycoons and tech companies announce billions of dollars in donations to social causes.

Yet overall, China’s 100 Richest saw their collective net worth rise from last year’s list. Their total wealth increased to $1.48 trillion from $1.33 trillion a year earlier. Among the biggest gainers were those who benefited from increased sales at companies tied to green energy industries in which China is a global leader, such as lithium-ion batteries. China, the world’s largest auto market, also leads the world in EV sales. The minimum net worth to make the top 100 rose to $5.74 billion from $5.03 billion a year ago.

The second-biggest increase in wealth went to Robin Zeng, chairman of battery-maker Contemporary Amperex Technology, whose fortune increased to $50.8 billion from $20.1 billion last year. That earned him the No. 3 spot on this year’s list.

China Now Has Over 1 Million Public Charging Points

Posted by in categories: sustainability, transportation

China is the world largest electric vehicle market and not surprisingly, has the world’s highest number of charging points.

According to the China Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Promotion Alliance (EVCIPA) (via Gasgoo), as of the end of September 2,021 there were 2.223 million individual charging points in the country. That’s a 56.8% increase year-over-year.

However, this is the total number, which consists of over 1 million publicly accessible points, and an even higher number of almost 1.2 million private points (mostly for fleets, as we understand).

Elon Musk’s tunnel vision is closer to becoming a reality

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, transportation

“This is not transportation for the wealthy,” Davis said. “It’s very affordable, very accessible and very, very comfortable.”

Davis told the commission that the system would be built in phases, with initial plans for five to 10 stations to open within the first six months once construction begins. About 15 to 20 stations would be added each year until full buildout, he said.

Whether the underground system makes a dent on the often-gridlocked Strip remains to be seen, but Hill is optimistic that Vegas Loop riders will be able to see more of Vegas once they emerge from the tunnels because they will be able to get around quicker. The innovation also creates a new point of interest in a town well known for its curiosities.

New technology gives smart cars ‘X-ray’ vision, detecting hidden pedestrians, cyclists

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, transportation

Australian researchers have developed disruptive technology allowing autonomous vehicles to track running pedestrians hidden behind buildings, and cyclists obscured by larger cars, trucks, and buses.

The autonomous vehicle uses game changing technology that allows it to “see” the world around it, including using X-ray style vision that penetrates through to pedestrians in blind spots and to detect cyclists obscured by fast-moving vehicles.

The iMOVE Cooperative Research Centre-funded project collaborating with the University of Sydney’s Australian Centre for Field Robotics and Australian connected vehicle solutions company Cohda Wireless has just released its new findings in a following three years of research and development.
