The latest research progress in robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) helps autonomous driving technology become more and more applicable in daily life and industry scenarios. The robotaxi and the autonomous trucking systems are built mainly based on vehicle onboard sensors and computing units. As the operation domain on public roads involves large-scale scenarios regarding locations and objects, an intelligent vehicle must be able to make its decision with its own perception and localisation inputs.

The world is in the middle of the electric revolution. The change from fossil fuel-driven machines to electric-driven has affected almost all industries in one way or another. As always with new technology, it brings new and exciting possibilities, but it also comes with the risk of misunderstandings, insecurity, and even fear, as new technology like electrified vehicles and machines replace old well-known diesel-driven alternatives.

In the intricate tapestry of global commerce, where the seamless transit of goods in containers forms the new standard, the role of container breach detection devices emerges as both pivotal and prescient. These devices, far from being mere technical fixtures, serve as a crucial line of defense against illicit activities such as the theft of goods, the smuggling of contraband and the infestation of narcotics.

The concept of redefining the roles of sellers and buyers, producers and consumers, is not new. Marshall McLuhan famously stated that the “medium is the message”, referring to the television industry in the 1960s. His theories on electronic communication highlighted the shift in power between producers and consumers, suggesting that the television audience was the content consumed by advertisers.
