Sailing: Japan test new design model for America's Cup challenge

Sunday, June 04, 2017

SoftBank Team Japan went for a significantly different course to other new teams looking for a challenge Oracle Team U.S.A in this month's 35th America's Cup.

Unlike Britain's Land Rover BAR and Groupama Team France who developed their own boats from scratch, Japan purchased their design from the United States holders of the cup.

Led by previous Emirates Team New Zealand skipper Dean Barker, the team is the first Japanese flagged challenger since 2000 and sponsor SoftBank has set its sights on "becoming the first Japanese team to win the America's Cup".

Under the procedure for the oldest trophy in worldwide sport, challengers can purchase a basic design packages for the one-design 50-foot (15 meter) hindering catamarans.

Getting an America's Cup boat on the water, not to mention taking on Oracle Team U.S.A and Artemis Racing which are both backed by billionaires, expenses 10s of millions of dollars.

And although Japan's close ties to the U.S. defenders have raised some concerns about independence, skipper and CEO Barker states they operate independently on key areas of designing and configuring their catamarans.

Orcale Team


This model is held up by the America's Cup organizers as a method for more hopefuls to install challenges.

SoftBank Team Japan likewise gets know-how in aerodynamics, instrumentation, simulation, composites, infrastructure, hydraulics and data analysis from Airplane, the European plane maker and "innovation partner" to both teams.

Another aspect giving Japan a "home" benefit is that they have based themselves in Bermuda with Oracle Team USA since they were founded in 2015.

Tesla delivered a record number of cars following increase of Model X demand

Thursday, April 06, 2017

You would believe Tesla would sell far fewer units of its more expensive, slightly frumpier-looking Model X SUV than its essential Model S sedan, however that's not the case nowadays. The electrical vehicle maker has revealed its production levels for the first quarter of this year, and it's apparent that the gap has closed significantly in recent months.

Tesla provided about 11,550 Model X vehicles at the beginning of the year, or simply 1,900 shy of the 13,450 Model S that had owners in the very same period. It's a plain contrast to a year previously, when Tesla provided 12,420 sedans and simply 2,400 SUVs-- buyers are really willing to trade a bit of money and style for some additional capability.



The gap may have been even narrower in perfect conditions. Tesla added that there were "severe" Model X part shortages in the first two months of this year and that it simply didn't have the time to ship every last example to clients in the duration. In other words, expect a huge bump in Model X numbers throughout the spring.

This was still a banner quarter for the automaker. Tesla's quickly increasing production objectives led it to set yet another delivery record, with 69 percent more EVs trading hands against a year previously. Given that, there's simply a couple of months to precede Tesla starts Model 3 production.

Toyota collaborates with Microsoft to bring voice recognition to vehicles

Thursday, March 30, 2017



Toyota owes Microsoft when it pertains to the future of the automaker's connected vehicles.

Microsoft will accredit a good deal of its connected vehicle patents to Toyota. Toyota will have access to a numerous intellectual properties spanning operating systems, voice acknowledgment, artificial intelligence and gesture control. It has not been revealed just how much money Toyota paid for this access, but we can guess that it probably wasn't low-cost.

This isn't the first time Microsoft and Toyota have collaborated. The two are interacting, and have been for the past year, on Toyota's information science center. Toyota Connected utilizes Microsoft's cloud computing platform to deal with services that concentrate on individualizing client experiences.

Don't anticipate Toyota to be the only one to benefit, however. It's not a special agreement, so Microsoft is free to offer its technologies to other car manufacturers. Not only will that benefit extra producers, it also indicates more cash for Microsoft. Discuss a win-win.

Microsoft, obviously, is not in the business of making automobiles, and that's very not likely to change. However it's a genuine powerhouse when it comes to making intellectual property, and given the rising computerization of the automobile market, it makes sense for Microsoft to turn its attention to connected vehicle technologies.

The tech giant is aware of dealing with car manufacturers other than Toyota. Renault-Nissan is utilizing Microsoft's Azure platform to expand its linked automobile services, including over-the-air updates. Volvo is working with Microsoft's HoloLens augmented-reality system to communicate with virtual parts during advancement.

Asia stock funds observes pockets of value after Trump sell-off

Sunday, December 04, 2016

Donald Trump's election victory last month activated a sell-off in Asian shares on increased fears of protectionism - but for some financiers, the selling marks a chance to buy into the continent's still compelling customer story.

Asian developing market stocks lost 5.5 percent in the week after the November 8 election and have been since recovered just 1.6 percent. On the other hand, the United States Dow Jones Industrial average is now 4.7 percent above its pre-election close, that's because of bets U.S. president-elect Trump will raise fiscal spending.

While Asia's trade-oriented economies are viewed as susceptible to Trump's seemingly protectionist propositions, financiers state the principles underpinning the region's big-- and progressively affluent-- pool of customers stay undamaged.

"Emerging markets have lower exposure to an export-driven design than is normally presumed," stated Nannette Hechler-Fayd' herbe, head of financial investment strategy at Credit Suisse.

Donald Trump


"Lots of emerging markets have a customer base that's growing, they have a demographic benefit of a young population ... and a middle class that is emerging."

Average incomes for the MSCI Asia ex-Japan index are anticipated to grow 12.5 percent in 2017 from 2016.

The continent's stocks, on the other hand, stay underestimated. The MSCI Asia ex-Japan index is trading at about 1.5 times book worth, against its 10-year average of 1.8 times. The S&P 500. SPX is at 2.8 times book worth, compared to its historic mean of 2.2 times.
