Overview of the Google Self Driving Car

Posted on 04 June 2014 by yizhan

It’s a well known fact that Google has been working on autonomous self driving cars for well over a few years now and people have been craving to see them in actual action so we recently got to see a glimpse of what they’re like when Google displayed its batch of self driving autonomous Lexus SUVs to the public and the press. The representatives of Google also mentioned that this project was being worked on for more than five years and along with this they also gave a good overview of the research and accomplishments thus far.

The basic demonstration involved two people getting into the self driving car and it seemed that they had had a smartphone in their hands with an app installed which they used to tell the car where their destination is. After they directed the car to their destination with the app then it automatically (as expected) took them to their assigned destination and then automatically stopped. However, during the test drive the self driving car seemed to display one shortfall. The shortfall was that passengers couldn’t just change their path mid-way through their journey so if any passenger had to change their route mid-way then they’d have to instruct the car to stop and then they’d assign a new route to it which can be quite a hassle.

The Google Self Driving Car lives up to its name as a truly driverless car since there were absolutely no controls in the car. Nothing you’d see in an ordinary car such as no steering wheels, no acceleration pedal, no break peddle and no gear handle so basically the only control you’ll have over your car is through the smartphone app and other than that you can’t control the car manually no matter what the circumstances. Google did mention that it was considering allowing passengers to seize control of the car during some emergency situations but decided against adding such a feature since it will just end up increasing the danger risk both to the car and its passengers.

Google has set the current speed of the Self Driving Car to go up to a maximum of 25 miles per hour and along with this the lead test driver for Google’s Self Driving Car, Brain Torcelleni, said that “We’re all about safety and realize that everything we do is about upholding the reputation of this technology. Many people are confused as to how the Google Self Driving Car knows about what roads to take, where a destination is, where any turns are and other similar things. The Self Driving car has Google’s high detail maps software hardwired into its system. The Google maps software that is built into the Self Driving Car is so in-depth that it details every single relevant thing such as stop signs, traffic lights, one way signs and other similar things and as for current traffic the car has sensors built into it that detect traffic and similar things for up to 600 ft. The car knows its own position thanks to a Global Positioning Satellite feed provided by Google’s own software.

Google has stated that they plan to have up to a 100 prototypes of the self-driving car and have them on public roads by the end of summer 2014. For the people who are curious on when they’ll be actually able to purchase these cars, it has been mentioned that they’ll be available for public purchase at some time during the year of 2015 and will only be available to the public where the law permits. Up until now there are only four states that have allowed the testing of self driving cars on public roads and these are California, Nevada, Michigan and Florida.

As a closing statement, a Google representative stated that “This is not an evolution of the car, but a revolution”.

Google Contact Lens May Have Integrated Camera And Glucose Monitor

Posted on 04 May 2014 by yizhan

Google has always been the leader when it comes to innovation and uniqueness in technology. Google recently announced about its upcoming product, the Google Contact Lens. The smart contact lens has been reported to be the world’s smallest wireless glucose sensor ever made. The smart contact lens will take the world of wearable devices to a whole new level, and some rumors have also suggested that the upcoming lens might even be integrated with an image-capturing capability.

Patent Bolt recently reported that Google has filed a patent for a series of micro cameras which they plan to introduce in their future contact lens. Although it will be an ordinary camera, but it has been given the name of “image capture component”. It is also reported that the smart lens will have multiple sensors which will enable the wearer to capture images and even control their remote devices with just blinking of the eye.

According to The Associated Press, it will approximately take 5 years for Google to release their contact lens for diabetic patients. The lens will help diabetic patients to keep a track of their blood sugar and insulin level. The lenses are yet to be tested before they are made available for consumers in the market. Google plans to produce lens which will produce accurate results and provide timely information, which is why it will take its time in the testing phase.

One thing which Google will have to ensure is that they produce contact lens which is better than other types of glucose monitors currently available in the market. And for that, they will have to make sure that the lens can correlate glucose level in tears. Testing the blood sugar level with devices which use blood was much simpler as compared to the upcoming device which will monitor the glucose level through tear.

The Google Contact Lens has been developed in the highly secretive Google X lab. The previous inventions from that laboratory include the driverless car, Google Glasses with internet connectivity and Project Loon. Only time will tell that how successful will the upcoming Contact Lens will be. But one thing needs to be kept in mind that not every product which gets patent actually reaches the market. In fact, majority of the products fail to reach the consumers because they do not pass the testing stage. So only time will tell whether the Google Contact Lens reach the market, and if they do, can be afforded by the general public or not.

Google Penguin 5 A Major Update?

Posted on 10 October 2013 by yizhan

On October 5th, everyone’s favorite Googler, Matt Cutts confirmed via Twitter that Penguin 2.1 launched.

If you follow Danny Sullivan, this latest update is being called Penguin 5.  Let me explain why we’re dealing with two different names for one update.  The update prior to this one, which was the 4th update, was more than just an update of the same filter; it was a new and improved version. Google called it Penguin 2.0 because it was a second generation of Penguin, but Danny referred to it as Penguin 4 since he felt it was less confusing for site owners to number them in the order they happen.  As if the changes themselves aren’t confusing enough, now there is confusion over what to call it.

Google has stated that when updates are small, they will use a .1 instead of jumping up to the next number.  So since this was a small update with no major changes, it’s Penguin 2.1.  So don’t be confused if you hear someone talking about Penguin 2.1 and Penguin 5, they are one and the same.

To further clarify things, here is a list of all confirmed Penguin updates and both of their names.

  •  Penguin 1 on April 24, 2012 (impacting around 3.1% of queries)
  •  Penguin 2 on May 26, 2012 (impacting less than 0.1%)
  • Penguin 3 on October 5, 2012 (impacting around 0.3% of queries)
  •  Penguin 4 (AKA Penguin 2.0) on May 22, 2013 (impacting 2.3% of
  • queries)
  • Penguin 5 (AKA Penguin 2.1) on Oct. 4, 2013 (impacting around
  • 1% of queries)

The goal of Penguin is to remove low quality, spammy sites from the results pages. Penguin specifically targets low quality and paid links.

If you were hit by any of the Penguins, you will see a noticeable decrease in traffic either the day the update happened or the next day.  It is incredibly unlikely that you will recover from Penguin without rectifying your link situation.

On the other hand, if you had taken a hit before and have fixed things, you likely saw an increase in traffic after 2.1 ran.

It’s important to note that Penguin is an automated filter with no human intervention, there is no manual penalty assignment, so a reconsideration request will not help you.

So how do you recover from Penguin?

There is some debate about whether you should disavow links, and we’ve seen valid arguments on both sides.

The truth is, as with most things related to SEO, there is no one “right” way.  It depends on your history and how you obtained the problematic links.

If you are guilty of buying links or participating in some other link scheme or if you hired a less than reputable firm that did any of that on your behalf, then you are going to have your work cut out for you and I don’t suggest you go right to the disavow.

But let me back up for a minute, the first step is truly understanding your link profile.  You shouldn’t take any action at all if you don’t know what your profile looks like.

If you aren’t sure how your link profile looks or you don’t even know what a link profile is, the smartest thing you can do for your business is get a Link Audit.  Once the Audit is done, you will know what you are dealing with and can create your action plan.
