Canada's Automated Pick-Up Parking System Will Deliver Driverless Cars To Your Doorstep - Narcity
So the deal is they build a autonomous car focused parking garage, and you use an app to summon a service car from teh garage to your house, like an automated long distance valet

Why GPS makes distances bigger than they are - International Journal of Geographical Information Science -
So using distance caculated from point fixes results in over-distance error accumulation, particularly when moving. So, use velocity vectors and back calculate from that, since the doppler calculations seem better.

Govt aims to triple wind power : Business : DAILY YOMIURI ONLINE (The Daily Yomiuri)
Oh that's sleazy, forcing the wind power generators to basically underwrite half the cost of the transmission system upgrades to send power south from the cold windy northern prefectures that the local utilities and conventional power producers were totally unwilling to put up with the cost of putting in such transmission networks themselves. The interesting takeaway is the planned grid energy storage at major substations to even out wind power production. Sine the wind companies are forced to make their own independent transmission networks, I wonder if they will charge penalty fees on the local utilities to use the network, since they forced the capex onto the wind companies.

Public entity eyed for power supply : Business : DAILY YOMIURI ONLINE (The Daily Yomiuri)
So the government is using the opportunity to pimp slap TEPCO into allowing a power grid ISO. Still kinda daft to have two ISO's for the 50/60Hz split, but understandable since the transfer limit across the divide is so low. Which might change if Son gets his way with his offshore HVDC grid intertie, which having an ISO exist would facilitate.

A font developed for readability at distance, which means it's a good font for reading pretty much anything, if readability trumps fancy pants design. Such as in this case, US Federal highway sign standards. Interesting that they did testing with elderly drivers, and how they perceive fonts at distance.

Official Google Blog: The wind cries transmission
The other shoe drops regarding Google being a power broker. This offshore long distance transmission line network kills two birds with one stone; power leveling wind turbine output by averaging over a large geographic area, and new long distance transmission capacity with little to no NIMBY blockage (because it's very difficult to block what people can't see and is beyond the 12 mile limit) carrying power from southern US power producers (which includes the new nuclear reactors in Georgia). No other major power broker can probably bring online such large north-south transmission capacity using existing rights-of-way, and will likely have to either buy into the project at a disadvantage, or end up getting screwed by Google later in the power spot markets.

100m is the key, likely a bluetooth 2.1 or maybe a wibro or similar bluetooth subvariant radio. Other possibilities include wifi, zigbee, or a custom 2.4 GHz beacon protocol. May couple a motion detection sensor on the tag to change update rate.
