The difficulties of testing driverless cars in Moscow

The difficulties of testing driverless cars in Moscow
What is the worst confluence of driving conditions you can possibly imagine? It's probably nighttime in a densely populated city. There would be a vision-obscuring blizzard making the roads slick and unreliable. Traffic would be thick and moving irregularly. Worse, the drivers around you would have seemingly little regard for your safety, or even their own. Even the road signs would be difficult to see. Welcome to life for drivers in Moscow.

Enhanced modules aid EV powertrain tests

Semiconductor test equipment supplier Advantest has introduced two modules that enable its T2000 IPS system to test high-voltage and high-power devices used in the power trains of electric vehicles (EV/HV). The enhanced MMXHE (multifunction mixed high voltage) and MFHPE (multifunction floating high power) modules enable massively parallel, high-performance testing by leveraging Advantest’s multifunctional pin design, which allows flexibility in assigning test resources to any pin.
