    Dynamic target tracking camera system keeps its eye on the ball #DigInfo

    January 3, 2020

    This camera system can track fast moving
    objects, keeping them in the center of the screen at all times. Currently under development by the
    Ishikawa Oku Lab. at the University of Tokyo, this latest version captures
    Full HD video and can be used outdoors. This device consists of two mirrors for pan and tilt, and a group of lenses. The Saccade mirrors can be controlled
    at high speed, on the order of milliseconds. The mirrors move independently, so
    this system doesn’t lose its high-speed response even if it’s connected
    to a large, heavy camera. Also, by connecting a projector instead
    of a recording device, images can be projected onto a fast-moving object. This could also be used in AR applications, showing interactive content on moving objects.

    Beginner’s guide to German trains

    November 14, 2019

    During the World Cup, The Onion
    had an article about how it was hoped that the spectacle would
    raise the spirits of Germans as they struggled to cope with terrible adversity: Unemployment at a massive five per cent! Average life expectancy only eighty years! And they’re still waiting for a high-speed
    rail link from Hanau to Gelnhausen! The Onion is a satirical website,
    so it probably doesn’t matter, but… …did you notice the terrible mistake? Yes of course! There already is a high-speed rail link
    between Hanau and Gelnhausen. However, it is true that high-speed trains
    don’t stop at Gelnhausen. This is because Gelnhausen
    is very close to Hanau; and, although a nice place to visit,
    isn’t big enough or important enough for high-speed trains to stop there. So you have to take a high-speed train
    to either Hanau or Fulda, and then a local train from there. Trains go pretty much everywhere in Germany, and most of them are operated by
    the state-owned company Deutsche Bahn. There are different types of train
    for different types of journey, and it can be a little bit confusing. So here is my helpful, simple little guide. Deutsche Bahn services can be divided
    into two main categories. “Fernbahn” means long-distance trains,
    which are normally white. “Nahverkehr” means local trains,
    and they’re normally red. Other operators don’t follow this convention, but since most trains in Germany
    are operated by Deutsche Bahn, it’s a pretty good rule of thumb. In many parts of Germany, the local trains are fully integrated
    with the local public transportation system, which is cool, because it means I can even
    use them with my bus ticket. In many German cities and urban areas
    there’s a sytem called the “S-Bahn”. This is a mass transit commuter rail system connecting the city centre with the suburbs
    and the surrounding towns. You can get an S-Bahn train
    wherever you see this sign, and in the city centre it sometimes
    acts as a kind of a metro system. Next is the RegionalBahn. These are slow trains
    that connect small towns and villages. They’re not very comfortable, but that doesn’t
    matter because they don’t travel long distances. RegionalExpress trains are slightly faster, go slightly further, and don’t stop
    at every single station on route. So they provide pretty good connections
    between towns and cities. In some parts of Germany
    there are InterRegio-Express trains, which are like RegionalExpress
    except that they cover longer distances. Germany’s long-distance trains
    can be a little bit expensive, but you can get some very good deals
    if you buy your ticket in advance. I’d also recommend reserving seats,
    because they can get quite full. Deutsche Bahn’s flagship, of course,
    is the Intercity-Express, the high-speed trains which, on some stretches,
    can go as fast as 300 kilometers an hour: that’s more than 180 miles an hour. You can get from Hamburg to Munich in six hours. And where the ICE doesn’t go, there’s still the
    plain old Intercity, which is still quite fast. And if you’re travelling very long distances,
    the Eurocity is the same as the Intercity except that it crosses international boundaries, and it may have cars
    from other countries’ national carriers. So it really is that simple. Take a white train to get
    from one end of the country to the other, and a red train to get
    from one village to the next. If you have something for my notice board, please send it to this address. Please note that I can only accept
    letters and postcards, so please don’t send me parcels or packages, or anything that must be signed for.
