first_imgOTTAWA — Elections Canada says it will decide on a case-by-case basis whether discussing the legitimacy of climate change becomes a partisan issue for third parties during the federal campaign, and only if it receives complaints.Environment groups say they feel muzzled from speaking out about the urgency of climate change after the federal elections agency warned earlier this summer that doing so could be considered partisan.The Canada Elections Act could consider advertising partisan if it opposes or supports a policy positions of any party or candidate, even without naming them.If the advertising exceeds $500, third parties would have to register with Elections Canada, raising fears among some environmental charities that the Canada Revenue Agency could also decide they are partisan and put their tax status in jeopardy.In the case of climate change, People’s Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier has taken a position that climate change is not an emergency nor caused by humans, which could potentially makes any argument saying differently a partisan statement under the law. Clean Energy Canada has already restricted some of its responses to party positions to avoid running afoul of the law, while Greenpeace Canada is planning to cease all advertising on climate change during the writ period.An Elections Canada spokeswoman says the rules around advertising for third parties are not new, but concedes the concerns about climate change may be coming up only now because the environment is poised to play a bigger role in the campaign, which is expected to get underway early next month.The Canadian Presslast_img

first_imgTiming-Architects Embedded Systems has been acquired by Vector Informatik. The Stuttgart-based specialist for automotive embedded electronics will now offer its customers an even more comprehensive portfolio in the field of multi-core real-time systems. The two IT companies have been cooperating for a number of years. Their relationship was strengthened in 2016, when Vector acquired a 49% share in Timing-Architects. This cooperation enabled the companies to optimize the interplay between the TA Tool Suite and MICROSAR, Vector’s multi-core-capable AUTOSAR basic software. In addition, Vector successfully marketed the TA Tool Suite throughout the world.TA’s team of nearly 40 people will continue to expand the TA Tool Suite and integrate it with Vector tools like DaVinci Configurator Pro and PREEvision. The team will also work on ways to speed up the integration of software in high-performance real-time platforms. Timing-Architects will remain in its location at TechBase Regensburg, which is near the Vector office in Regensburg.Due to their higher computing power, multi-core processors offer ideal conditions for innovative software applications in vehicles, such as for ADAS systems. However, when applications are running on multiple cores, runtime losses are incurred due to data communication between the cores. For time-critical applications, the challenge is to find an optimal distribution of the application software. With the TA Tool Suite, the network of multi-core ECUs can be analyzed and optimized consistently, resulting in a reliable and efficient system. In the line with the vision of AUTOSAR, now developers will have new degrees of freedom in distributing software functions in real-time multi-core processors.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Tools & Software Continue Reading Previous Würth Elektronik eiSos presents new catalog of electromechanical componentsNext Signal Concept: getting in-phase with your meterlast_img
