Huntkey Was Invited to Observe the on-Site Launch of Tianzhou-3
SHENZHEN, China, Oct. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The successful launch of Tianzhou-3 in Wenchang City on September 20, 2021, means that Chinese space station construction mission is one step closer to complete success. The main task of Tianzhou-3 is to transport and store cargo, replenish propellant for the space station, and collect and store waste, and bring it back to the atmosphere for destruction. Compared with Tianzhou-2, Tianzhou-3's launch site is more efficient in installation. Against this historical background, Huntkey Group, which helped the development of the aerospace industry, was invited to the Wenchang aerospace launch site in Hainan Province to observe the launch of Tianzhou-3. Mr.Liu, Executive President of Huntkey, Mr.Zhang, Huntkey's sub-brand Oucica Product Manager, together with Shenzhen Media Group, the Space Science and Technology Institute (Shenzhen), and other people and institutions, witnessed the rapid development of Chinese aerospace technology. Mr.Liu was deeply moved and said that Huntkey would consistently make unremitting efforts for the development of the aerospace industry. On January 28, 2021, Huntkey Group signed a strategic cooperation agreement with the Space Science and Technology Institute (Shenzhen) based on years of technology accumulation and excellent product quality and has since embarked on a journey of boosting the development of the aerospace industry. From July to August 2021, Oucica photocatalyst air purifier KJ380 participated in the simulated space environment experiment to test its ability to sterilize, disinfect and remove aldehydes in the living and working environment of astronauts. Volunteers were in a closed and isolated simulated space environment. The project team monitored, evaluated and intervened on their fasting and sleep to verify the sensitivity and effectiveness of fasting, low-metabolism in human body, sleep monitoring, and sleep promotion equipment. At the same time, psychological measurements of volunteers' cognition, mood, fatigue and team environment during the confined isolation period were carried out. The experimental results show that Oucica adopts the MaSSC photocatalyst UVA decomposition system, which can effectively decompose harmful substances and avoid secondary pollution of the environment. Compared with ordinary photocatalysts, the MaSSC photocatalyst UVA decomposition system has a more efficient purification capacity and does not produce harmful substances such as ozone. Moreover, Oucica photocatalyst air purifier is additionally equipped with an activated carbon multi-layer filter, which has multiple purification capabilities and is far cleaner than ordinary products. Especially in dealing with viruses and bacteria, it can efficiently remove a variety of bacteria and viruses, including H1N1 influenza A virus, H3N2 influenza virus, and enterovirus EV71, including a variety of common indoor bacteria and viruses, with a removal rate of as high as 99.99%. In order to obtain this product technical qualification, Huntkey has gone through tens of thousands of experimental attempts and has been tempered by setbacks and failures. After three years, it finally successfully combined the melt blown technology with the photocatalyst technology, breaking the current design tradition of pure filtration and adsorption. Traditional filtering and adsorption air cleaners can clean the air in the early stage of use, but as time goes by, after the adsorption material reaches the saturation level, it will release toxic and harmful gases, and the harmful substances deposited on the filter will also volatilize, causing secondary environmental pollution to the human body and there is a pathogenic hazard. Compared with the surface of the earth, the living environment of astronauts in space is more challenging. How can the materials carried by Tianzhou-3 not be contaminated? How to achieve the purification of harmful gases in the space station? How to improve the pollution problem of formaldehyde released in the early stage of material use? They once became concerns of aerospace engineers, which were related to the health of the astronauts and directly affected the efficiency and results of the space station. Oucica's test results undoubtedly provided help in solving this problem and ensured the smooth progress of the aerospace industry to a certain extent. After observing the on-site launch, Mr.Liu visited the Aerospace Science Museum. The staff of the Museum explained the entire process of the Tianzhou-3 launch mission in detail. Mr.Liu said that it was the first time for him to understand the aerospace work process from a professional point of view and feel the charm of aerospace technology. The rigorous and hard-working spirit displayed by the astronauts will continue to inspire Huntkey to do a good job in our industry, do a good job in quality, and strive to make contributions in the future.

IDTechEx Discusses if Huawei Will Survive
Under US sanctions, Huawei’s revenue in the first half of 2021 was RMB 320.4 billion, which despite COVID-19 is a 38% decrease from RMB 454 billion in the same period last year; Xu Zhijun, Huawei’s rotating chairman, pointed out that Huawei’s goal is to survive. IDTechEx has recently launched the new version of their market research report on 5G - "5G Technology, Market and Forecasts 2022-2032". Some of the findings from the new report are presented in this article. The smartphone business was once one of Huawei's largest sources of revenue. However, under the influence of the U.S. ban, Huawei's smartphone revenue has fallen sharply. Huawei said that in the first half of 2021, the total revenue of consumer products including smartphones was 47% lower than that of 2020. Huawei was forced to shift its strategic focus away from its once most profitable sector. Huawei first stocked up on nearly a year's worth of chipsets and electronic components to mitigate the impact of the U.S. sanctions on its 5G supply chain, which catalyzed the global semiconductor shortage. Afterwards, Huawei sold its smartphone subsidiary “HONOR” to Shenzhen Zhixin New Information Technology Company in 2020, so that HONOR could get chipset supply from US vendors such as Qualcomm and survive. So far, Huawei's smartphones introduced this year have all been 4G-only, indicating that the company has officially run out of the 5G chipsets it had stocked up before and is struggling to find another. Rumors are saying that Huawei may sell the rest of its smartphone business this year, however, Huawei has denied this. Nonetheless, it is no doubt that Huawei’s smartphone business is unlikely to return to its former glory anytime soon. Because of the huge 5G expansion in the Chinese market, Huawei's infrastructure sector appears to be more solid. China accounts for over 60% of the total 5G infrastructure industry, according to IDTechEx's recently released market research report “5G Technology, Market and Forecasts 2022-2032”. Huawei is China's leading 5G system vendor. According to the results of 2021 5G infrastructure bidding auctions published by China Mobile and China Telecom, Huawei secures around 60% of the share. Looking ahead, the 5G infrastructure market will continue to grow in China. It is also important to recognize the Chinese government's impact on emerging countries such as Africa and Southeast Asia. Though 5G growth in those emerging countries is slower than in developed nations, it will happen, and Huawei will play a key part in that since Huawei is able to deliver 5G systems at the lowest market price, as well as thanks to the Chinese government's efforts. After the breakdown of its smartphone business, Huawei began to significantly invest in two important areas: digital transformation and the automotive sector. The growing need for digital transitions in China, along with the Chinese government's strong push, will allow Huawei to expand in this area. This is proven by the fact that revenue in Huawei's enterprise sector in the first half of 2021 is 18% higher than in the same period in 2020. Furthermore, Huawei is currently investing heavily in software development, which was previously not their primary emphasis. Technologies such as big data analysis and artificial intelligence that will define the future of telecommunications and associated applications are now a significant research priority for them. Autonomous vehicles will require 5G connection to reach their full potential, and China's autonomous vehicle industry is massive. Huawei stated this year that it will invest RMB 28.3 billion in autonomous driving and electric car technologies, and it has already begun to collaborate with local automakers on several projects. So, will Huawei survive? They are suffering, but there is no indication of Huawei giving up. Given the enormous size of the Chinese domestic market, their role in the booming 5G infrastructure rollout, major technology investments in key future trends, and the Chinese government's financial and political support, Huawei's odds of changing the tide in the future are not bleak.

Agora Data to Present at 2021 NIADA/NABD Convention
Agora Data’s Senior Vice President of Sales, Chris Barry, is slated to speak at the 2021 NIADA/NABD Automotive Finance & BHPH Expo. Barry will present “Groundbreaking Changes in Auto Financing to Fuel Growth” at 2:15 p.m. on November 2 in Orlando, Florida. Barry will share how new and revolutionary ways of accessing capital can help dealers compete with online retailers and large used-car superstores. Agora is pioneering change in the auto finance industry by completing the first-ever crowdsourced subprime securitizations in December 2020 and May 2021. Agora plans to execute these transactions regularly thereby permitting more and more dealers to tap into the capital markets. “Unlike any other time in history, independent and Buy Here Pay Here dealers are competing with mega-sized auto retailers who have the advantage of abundant capital with low rates and attractive terms. They may not know they have access to their competitors’ “secret sauce,” said Barry, who has more than 30 years of experience in auto lending, servicing, and ancillary products. “That’s why I’m excited to present at this year’s NIADA/NABD convention. I plan to spell out the most beneficial funding opportunities for independent and Buy Here Pay Here dealers, along with some bonus tips on leveraging robust data to improve loan portfolio performance.” At the convention, Barry will also participate in the BHPH Contract Purchasers Capital Panel, moderated by Ken Shilson.

MWC LA 2021: ROPE to make US debut at MWC LA with its automotive smart e-call system series
SEOUL, South Korea, Oct. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- ROPE, a leading manufacturer of automotive smart e-call systems and a member company of Born2Global Centre, has independently developed multiple e-call devices, which will be featured at the company's global product launch at Mobile World Congress Los Angeles 2021 (Booth no.: 1123-J, South Hall), slated to be held Oct. 26–28 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. ROPE is known for its smart e-call system technology that automatically sends an SOS message in the event of a car accident so that the car's driver and passengers can receive timely assistance. BATON PLUG The following ROPE products will be on display at this year's MWC for visitors to enjoy and experience. BATON SOS (chargeable, currently available for purchase): A car-mounted device that detects and analyzes, through a nine-axis sensor, movements inside the vehicle and produces a distress signal if necessary BATON PLUG (non-chargeable, new release): A car-mounted device that detects and analyzes, through a nine-axis sensor, abnormal movements inside the vehicle and produces a distress signal if necessary BATON BIKE (battery-operated, new release): A device that can be mounted on personal mobility devices (e.g. bicycles) BATON SOS is a chargeable, first-generation product that has gained much positive feedback from users in Korea, Germany, Spain, and Japan. Most of this positive feedback can be attributed to the fact that the device increases the peace of mind of automobile drivers and their passengers. There have been numerous social media posts from users in Korea and Japan who credit the BATON SOS for transmitting an SOS message that helped them receive timely medical attention after they lost consciousness in a serious car accident. Unsurprisingly, these posts have resulted in increased interest in and purchases of the product. BATON PLUG, soon to be launched, is powered by the car's cigarette lighter socket or USB port instead of using batteries. This makes the device, compatible with any type of car, more convenient to use and also increases the sensitivity of the device's internal sensor. Following one year of field testing in Korea, preparations are now underway for the product's global, strategic launch, which is planned for 2023. ROPE CEO Jason Cho said, "Traffic accidents, which annually cause significant loss of property and human lives, are a social problem that countries worldwide continue to make multi-faceted efforts to prevent. Despite these ongoing efforts, however, due to various reasons, the number of traffic accidents is steadily increasing in tandem with the number of accident-caused fatalities. The e-call system is increasingly being utilized to ensure that emergency personnel can respond quickly to traffic accidents, which minimizes property damage and the loss of human life. ROPE's products—which either automatically or manually send the exact location coordinates of a vehicle in distress along with an SOS message to the nearest emergency response center—are the best e-call system devices currently available. I am confident that our products—which allow for a more timely response to car accidents—will contribute significantly to alleviating the traffic accident-related problems in many countries." BATON PLUG is planning to launch on Kickstarter during MWC (October 26-28). Through its campaign, they aim to expand and enhance the user experience. Early bird backers can receive the product starting at just $49.00 USD. For more detailed information on ROPE, visit www.batonplug.com.

The company is currently engaged in R&D for the launch of a smartphone app version of the BATON SOS, a second-generation product designed for global distribution. ROPE is also making great strides in the development of an AI-based accident prediction system, which involves applying big data on personal mobility devices and accidents to the company's own algorithm for analysis. In the long-term, ROPE aims to provide solutions not only for the reporting but also for the prevention of traffic accidents.

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- On Christmas Day this year, millions will receive presents requiring batteries, but only one will be lucky enough to get the gift of owning the world's most valuable domain for selling batteries around the globe – Batteries.com. Christmas Photo by S&B Vonlanthen Batteries.com will be sold to the highest bidder through a private auction process – with the winner being informed of their status as the domain's new owner on December 25th, 2021. The deadline for written bids to be received via Federal Express will be Tuesday, December 21st. Auction details can be found at WelcomeToBatteries.com. "Batteries.com is indeed a rarity," said Karine Kugler, CEO of The Three Marketers, upon learning that one of the most sought-after Internet domains will be sold before the end of this year. "With the emerging competition and explosive growth in batteries, this domain's inherent value proposition for a buyer is clear: an Internet address as distinct and easily located as the Louvre in Paris," added Kugler, whose marketing skills attract clients worldwide. The ability for one-word, industry-defining domains to dominate search engines and traffic to their sites has benefited "category-killer" domain owners across wide-ranging industries, from insurance (insure.com) and cars (cars.com), to hotels (hotels.com). As sales of consumer electronics spiral upwards along with electric vehicles and the need to reliably capture solar and wind power for homes and businesses, the battery industry is expected to triple in size by 2027, exceeding $300 billion annually. As such, the winning bidder for Batteries.com stands to gain a significant competitive advantage for their brand and products, with the potential to be dominant in one of the world's fastest growing industries. Batteries.com is live in a pre-launch format, gathering interests related to battery preferences from visitors. The site's simple ad campaign *Batteries not included has charmed millions and continues to raise the domain's profile. The auction for Batteries.com is being organized by Peter D.
