Aokang: I am very happy to be able to repay Alonso

In the F1 Qatar Grand Prix last Sunday, Fernando Alonso won his first podium since leaving the Ferrari team in 2014 on the Rossell circuit. This may be thanks to his teammate Esteban. ·Aokang.

During the race, O'Connell did his best to block Perez, the Red Bull driver who was chasing Alonso. This cost Perez about 3 seconds, which eventually caused Perez to be unable to be at the end of the race. The stage launched an attack on Alonso.

Aokang said that he was very happy to be able to help his teammates stand on the podium, "just like Fernando did in Hungary."

O'Connell won the first championship of his career in Hungary this season, thanks to the help of Alonso to a certain extent. The latter successfully blocked Hamilton for several laps in the final stage of the game, which gave Aokang enough breathing space and took the lead to meet the checkered flag.

Zhou Hongyi commented on Tesla's "disconnection": huge security risks

The Tesla "disconnection" incident has attracted widespread attention. Due to the interruption of app services, car owners in many places around the world cannot open their car doors through mobile apps.

▲Picture from: Tech AU

Data from a network monitoring company showed that the incident affected about 500 car owners. Later, 360 company founder and chairman Zhou Hongyi commented on the matter on Weibo, and pointed the problem at the cloud server of the car company.

This shows that the intelligent networked car must be connected to the cloud server of the car company, and drive by continuously uploading driving status data and receiving remote commands. This time, the impact of the car owner's failure to open the door may not be significant, but if a hacker organizes a network attack, it may threaten driving safety and personal safety. According to statistics, in 2020, nearly one-third of automotive cyber attacks were initiated through cloud servers.

It is understood that 360 has been involved in the field of Internet of Vehicles security since 2014, and has established a Sky-Go team specializing in vehicle security research. It has cracked Tesla's cloud system three times.

Today's topic: Do you have any requirements for leather interiors?

With the rapid growth of the global automotive industry, the demand for leather is also increasing.

Data shows that in 2020, the United States imported nearly 5 thousand tons of leather from Brazil, which is mainly used for leather interiors for automobile manufacturing. As a well-known low-cost leather production area, local ranchers continue to illegally cut the Amazon forest in order to increase the area of ​​grazing land.

Although some car companies have expressed their “efforts to trace the origin of the leather,” in fact, many leathers with legal identities still come from illegal pastures.

The occurrence of this situation is naturally caused by market demand. If it is you, do you have any requirements for leather interiors?
