There are many challenging tasks when developing autonomous driving features to cope with the various changes to the environment. Often lane markings are faded or are covered with snow or dirt and can be difficult for a camera-based detection system. In this report, VSI addresses the application of HD map assets to improve the safety and performance of automated vehicle features within the context of lane keeping and trajectories. VSI has been examining applications of HD maps in our test vehicle. In a previous report, we discussed map-based Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) using the advised speed attributes from HERE’s HD map data. In this report, we apply HERE’s HD map data to a lane keeping application and examine performance of lane keeping with a map-based approach compared to a camera and computer vision-based approach.

This paper contrasts the features of medium voltage fixed circuit breaker switchgear (FCBS) and existing withdrawable circuit breaker switgear (WCBS) designs. Modern FCBS design elements that are discussed include an internal disconnect for isolation and grounding of circuits and interlocked operation among disconnect, breaker, and grounding switch for improved safety. Furthermore, features such as lower maintenance, smaller footprint, and reduced life cycle costs that result from its simpler design will be explored. By comparing the traditional ANSI WCBS technology to that of the FCBS, this paper will demonstrate that the fixed design, which has gained widespread acceptance in global markets outside the United States, is a viable alternative to the withdrawable designs.

This IDC white paper examines the drivers behind the adoption of IoT technologies by public services organizations and why the IoT is becoming a key investment priority. Public services are comprised of a diverse set of organizations, including federal, regional and local governments and healthcare and social services providers. These all have mandates to improve the safety, health and quality of life of their constituents across a broad range of programs. This paper also provides market insights and describes examples of IoT implementations that highlight the diversity of scenarios in the public service sector. These diverse scenarios illustrate the impact IoT solutions can have across many citizen-centric services.

Code updates happen for one main reason: safety improvement. NEC (National Electrical Code) Article 408.3 helps take electrical safety for service entrance panels to a new level. The code, updated in 2017, includes provisions to provide shock protection via panelboard barriers. The barriers protect from energized conductors on the line terminals of the main overcurrent protection device (OCPD) in a panelboard. When the main circuit breaker in a panel is turned off, line side terminals and conductors remain energized from upstream via the utility or another panelboard. With these barriers in place and the main OCPD turned off, installers are better protected when pulling wires into the panelboard. Today, all panelboards are shipped with shock-protective barriers. However, barriers are new to installation procedures, so contractors may not recognize them and accidentally throw them out—easily and often.

Today, it’s commonplace for companies to check the motor vehicle records (MVRs) of their drivers once a year. That’s considered due diligence. But what if one driver gets a moving violation or a citation for driving under the influence three weeks after the report was pulled? It could take months for that potentially costly issue to come to light. Likewise, a driver safety policy issued annually is typically worth about as much as the paper it’s written on. There is great potential in setting high standards and creating positive driving behaviors, but this must be a continual process informed by concrete policies, shared motivation to improve, useful data, and quality leadership. Fortunately, several important practices can help companies create a better safety culture –saving money, reducing risk and legal vulnerability, and keeping employees and communities safe. Here’s how.

The use of wristbands to identify hospital patients has been a standard practice for well over half a century. Handwritten, typed or printed, wristbands were originally created to provide an easy way for caregivers to verify identity at any point along the patient’s healthcare journey. From newborns in the delivery area to geriatric patients in rehabilitation, everyone got a wristband. And that’s how things worked until the introduction of barcode technology. By putting barcodes on hospital wristbands, healthcare facilities can leverage a host of connected technologies to improve safety and quality of care. It’s also the most effective way to comply with the National Patient Safety Goal (NPSG) to “Improve the accuracy of patient identification,” which the Joint Commission has included in its annual goals since 2003.
