ADAS/AD Master Chip Research: Weaknesses and Disruption in the Integration Trend

L2 vehicles are gaining ground as penetration is over 15%. A rash of L2.5 vehicle launches is drawing near. Mass production of L3 and L4 (limited scenarios) is also around the corner.

Report calls for backpacker visa changes | The Canberra Times

news, national

Workers in low-paid farm jobs like fruit picking would be able to stay on the dole under a parliamentary committee’s plan to improve backpacker visas. The Joint Standing Committee on Migration released its final report into the working holiday maker program on Monday. The report, which was sparked by pandemic labour shortages, called for low-paid farm workers to continue to receive JobSeeker payments. As well, there should be an extension of age limits for the program to people who passed 30 or 35 while waiting or who were granted visas before coronavirus are included. Countries with low virus infection rates should be prioritised under a country-by-country approach. Alternatively, the government could look at giving countries which usually use the program priority for work in high demand. The report also suggests a sponsorship program for peak bodies, business or government to pay backpackers’ quarantine costs. The committee recommended that
