Московские власти могут свернуть проект запуска системы мониторинга пассажиропотока через смартфоны. Об этом сообщает «Коммерсантъ» со ссылкой на источник в мэрии столицы.
В октябре прошлого года Центр организации дорожного движения (ЦОДД) провел торги на 153 млн руб. о поставке 220 аппаратно-программных комплексов и софта для них.
АПК должны были разместить на остановках общественного транспорта и пешеходных стелах. По планам эти комплексы должны были отслеживать передвижения пешеходов по MAC-адресам (присваиваемый гаджету уникальный сетевой идентификатор). Данные хотели передавать в московский департамент информационных технологий. На их основе власти планировали формировать более точные карты пассажиропотока и оптимизировать работу общественного транспорта.
Сейчас от этого проекта могут отказаться из-за последних обновлений операционных систем Android и iOS, которые ввели функцию динамичного обновления MAC-адресов. По данным «Коммерсанта», технические специалисты мэрии пытаются найти выход из ситуации, но, вероятно, работы по внедрению системы мониторинга все же свернут.
Издание отмечает, что подрядчик — ООО «Информационные технологии будущего» — уже в конце декабря завершил первый этап работ, смонтировал все аппаратные комплексы и получил за это от заказчика 62,8 млн руб. При этом на момент заключения контракта между фирмой и ЦОДД Москвы уже было известно об обновлениях операционных систем для смартфонов (они вышли в сентябре), предусматривающих динамическую смену MAC-адресов.
В ЦОДД сообщили изданию, что не в курсе планов по сворачиванию проекта. В «Информационных технологиях будущего» не ответили на запрос.
Глава комитета Госдумы по информационной политике, информационным технологиям и связи Александр Хинштейн допустил, что непредусмотрительность чиновников может привести к проверке закупки. Он отметил, что технологическое развитие быстрее бюрократии. «Если тем, кто проводил закупку, изначально было ясно, что технология устареет, то потраченные средства являются прямым ущербом бюджету», — сказал депутат.
Осенью, когда стало известно об аукционе, эксперты говорили, что с помощью новой системы мониторинга власти столицы хотят отслеживать перемещения граждан в обход мобильных операторов, которые собирают и хранят подобную информацию, но делятся ею только по запросам.
При этом планировалось, что информация о пассажиропотоке и пешеходах будет обезличенной, поскольку MAC-адреса смартфонов никак не привязаны к личности их владельцев.
Channel Seven have conformed the premiere date for their reality show, Holey Moley.
The mini golf competition will begin airing at 7:30pm on February 1st, Mumbrella reported on Friday.
That will pit it against rival network 10's The Amazing Race, which confirmed the same air date earlier this month.
Both shows will compete with The Australian Open, which will begin on February 8th.
Holey Moley will see golfers Montana Strauss, James Carr, Colette Norton, Becky Kay and Henry Epstein appear, Mumbrella reports.
Channel Seven said in their announcement: 'The ultimate winner of each episode takes home the prestigious plaid jacket, the golden putter and books a spot in the Grand Final, where they will compete for the chance to win $100,000 on the daunting last hole, the Tomb of Nefer-Tee-Tee.'
The Amazing Race Australia completed filming in November and was filmed entirely in Australia, after the Covid-19 pandemic made international travel impossible.
The show will launch after the finale of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! on January 31.
But there's still going to be plenty of drama and adventure, with a diverse group set to battle it out for the $250,000 prize money.
Earlier this month, all 28 contestants, which make up 14 teams, were revealed.
They include a pair of Gold Coast influencers, a pair of rodeo star cowboys, and a former professional soccer player, who also happens to be related to the Nigerian royal family.
Host Beau Ryan will return to the forefront, while Holey Moley sees hosts Rob Riggle and Matt Shirvington return along with golfer Greg Norman.
The date is October 19, 2019 and Leicester have just beaten Burnley 2-1 to maintain their impressive start to the season – yet manager Brendan Rodgers has a message for his wide attackers.
'Our wingers need to do more, both in terms of goals and contributions,' he said. 'You can't go through the season as a winger with one goal or two goals. There needs to be greater efficiency if we want to be at the top end of this league.'
For one player in particular, the penny dropped. When Harvey Barnes scored in an FA Cup victory over Wigan on January 4 last year, it started a run of 15 goals in 44 matches in all competitions. This season alone, the 23-year-old has 10 in 19 starts across the Premier League, Europa League and FA Cup. None have been penalties.
With Euro 2020 – as things stand – five months away, Barnes is making an increasingly convincing case to England manager Gareth Southgate.
His tally this term is better than those of Raheem Sterling, who has eight in 21 starts, and Jadon Sancho, who has six in 19. Both Sterling and Sancho are fixtures in the England squad; Barnes earned his first cap in a friendly against Wales last October but was not chosen for the next get-together.
'He has gained real confidence playing at this level,' said Rodgers. 'If you're a winger or an attacking player, your job is to create and score goals.
'If you're scoring two a season as a winger you won't be playing at the highest level for that long. So you have to produce and thankfully for him he is a great learner.
'He has some unique talents. Even if he is not at his best in a game he carries such a threat, and when he is playing at the top of his game he is a joy to watch.
'He is very direct, he is a ball-carrier, he takes you up the pitch, he is so fast – he is such an exciting player. It's been about encouraging him to get into areas where he can score and in virtually every game he plays, he looks like he can score.'
Barnes' rise is all the more impressive when you consider he has done it the hard way. This was not a teenage superstar in the mould of Wayne Rooney who immediately became a key player at the top level.
He excelled in sprinting and distance running at school and had timely advice from his father, Paul, a fine goalscorer who played for eight clubs, including York City and Burnley, in a 16-year career in the Football League.
Barnes Jnr's first loan spell was with Milton Keynes Dons, four years ago, where he scored with his third touch after coming on as a substitute against Northampton with 11 minutes left.
During his next stint, at Barnsley in the first half of the 2017-18 season, Barnes shared a flat with Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks, who was then at Sheffield United, after the pair had become friends playing international football at junior levels.
The key loan move, however, was to West Brom for the early stages of the 2018-19 campaign.
Encouraged by his father to spend as much time as he could with his new team-mates, Barnes would have dinner with senior players like Jake Livermore and Gareth Barry and their guidance paid dividends on the pitch.
After scoring nine goals in 26 matches and helping Albion challenge at the top of the table, Barnes was recalled to Leicester in January.
The loan periods were vital for Barnes' development not just on the pitch, but off it, too. 'It gave him that little bit more confidence around the players,' said his father Paul.
'In a Premier League dressing room as a younger player you have to be a strong character. You have to earn the right to have the ball passed to you, because your team-mates trust you. You have to be able to say "I'm going to show you".
'Harvey is very down to earth and once he feels settled he will blossom and develop. He'll take his time to settle in but then he will prove himself with his actions.'
Barnes is under contract at King Power Stadium until 2024 but his current terms will surely be improved if he continues to progress at this rate. His form has not gone unnoticed by Leicester's Premier League rivals, either.
The 23-year-old will line up against Chelsea on Tuesday evening having starred in wins over high-flyers Southampton, Stoke City and Newcastle in recent weeks and could be the key to unlocking Frank Lampard's side.
Should the Foxes win at the King Power, they would go top of the table – leapfrogging both Manchester clubs in the process.
These are exciting times, then, with Rodgers convinced that the best is still to come.
'He is making more runs into the box,' noted the Leicester boss. 'When I first came, he was outside the box a lot, where you're rarely going to score.
'Now he makes runs to the near post, far post, middle of the goal. Now it's about maintaining that hunger to score. His numbers are improving all the time and I suspect that will continue.'
Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean have revealed they'll be kept apart for the first time in 40 years due to Dancing On Ice's coronavirus guidelines.
Panellists Jayne, 63, and Christopher, 62, who have been inseparable ever since they scooped gold medals at the 1984 Winter Olympics, admitted the new experience is 'surreal' as they will remain socially distanced during the show, launching on Sunday.
Choreographer Christopher said in a new interview: 'I can't touch Jayne and dance with her and skate with her. We have to have two-metre separation or a screen, and talk through masks off camera. It's surreal.'
The TV judge's longtime professional partner added to The Mirror: 'I haven't met Chris in person this year, it will be strange I can't give him a hug, I will have to keep remembering.
'Lots of my friends have said for the last couple of weeks, ''We really need this now''. I can't wait and I hope the viewers are going to enjoy it.'
Viewers will still be able to see the dance icons display their fancy footwork in 'two or three routines' they pre-recorded late last year.
The duo will join Ashley Banjo and John Barrowman as they prepare to judge the likes of WAG Rebecca Vardy, actor Jason Donovan and rapper Lady Leshurr on the ice, while Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield will return to their hosting duties.
The group will be protected by perspex screens, while the studio at Bovingdon Airfield in Hertfordshire will have no audience, a move mirroring that of Strictly Come Dancing.
Five Dancing On Ice crew members have reportedly tested positive for coronavirus, it was claimed on Tuesday.
According to reports, show bosses are set to introduce stricter restrictions on set as a result of the outbreak so that the show can open as planned later this week.
Crew members behind the scenes are said to be concerned about others contracting COVID-19, but they are taking every precaution to ensure this doesn't happen.
A source told The Sun: 'More than five members of production are isolating because of Covid right now — it's become a nightmare. They're now enforcing even stricter regulations.
'But while there are concerns about further people having to isolate, bosses are confident they have put all the precautions in place to safely be able to get the show on air.'
A spokesperson for the show told MailOnline: 'The welfare of everyone who works on Dancing On Ice is our first priority.
'We have had a robust set of measures in place ever since work on the series commenced in order to operate safely within Covid-19 guidelines and to ensure the wellbeing of everyone connected with the production.'
