University of Tartu and Bolt presented autonomous driving lab’s test car 🚘📣📣📣

On 28 January the University of Tartu and Bolt presented the test car procured for the University of Tartu’s autonomous driving lab. This high-technology vehicle will be used for experiments in several research and development fields. The aim is to conduct test runs in urban traffic this year already.

According to Anne Jääger, Head of Industry Collaboration and Project Manager at the Institute of Computer Science of the University of Tartu, the presented test car is essentially a technology development platform. It will be used to start research and development in several research projects related to autonomous driving. “Among other things, we will study the possibilities to automatically generate machine-readable precision maps that are necessary for autonomous driving, ensure user safety and systems security, and improve human-vehicle interactions,” Jääger said.

🇪🇪 Tartu Ülikool ja Bolt esitlesid uue isejuhtivate sõidukite labori katseautot

28. jaanuaril esitlesid Tartu Ülikool ja Bolt Tartu Ülikooli isejuhtivate sõidukite labori jaoks hangitud katseautot. Tipptehnoloogiaga varustatud autoga hakatakse tegema eksperimente mitmes teadus-arendussuunas ja juba tänavu soovitakse jõuda ka katsesõitudeni linnaliikluses.

Tartu Ülikooli arvutiteaduse instituudi ettevõtluskoostöö juhi ja labori projektijuhi Anne Jäägeri sõnul on täna esitletud katseauto sisuliselt tehnoloogiaarendusplatvorm. Selle abil alustatakse teadus- ja arendustööd mitmel isejuhtimisega seotud uurimisteemal. „Muu hulgas hakkame uurima võimalusi, kuidas automaatselt koostada isejuhtimiseks vajalikke masinloetavaid täppiskaarte, tagada kasutajaohutus ja süsteemide turvalisus ning täiustada inimese ja sõiduki vahelise suhtluse viise,“ selgitas Jääger.

Melanoma is a highly agressive form of skin cancer that is usually treated with very expensive immunotherapy or whole-body chemotherapy with serious side effects.

An Estonian🇪🇪-Australian🇦🇺 study found that isolated limb infusion is a highly effective and well-tolerated treatment option for metastatic #melanoma.

The treatment results in Estonia are comparable to the high-volume medical centres in the US and Australia.
