Facebook Researching Millimeter-Wave Networks for Free Basics Service

Facebook is not letting its setback in India this week stop it from forging ahead with the expansion of its Free Basics service.

The social network is looking into wireless networks that use high-frequency millimeter-wave bands as part of Internet.org’s plan to bring Internet access to remote areas and poor neighborhoods.

“This work is part of the Connectivity Lab which supports the mission of Internet.org — to connect the four billion people who don’t have Internet access,” a Facebook representative told the Verge. “The Connectivity Lab is working on a number of such projects, including systems that would provide connections through satellites or drone-mounted lasers.”

Facebook has applied for at least two patents on the technology. One patent describes a next generation data network.

“It leverages the “cloud” for data management, frequency data computation and analytics,” the patent description reads. “The wireless network is a single frequency network that permits limited non-line-of-sight operation. The wireless network using packet switched beams, the beams are formed and switched electronically. It utilizes advanced signal processing to compensate for low transmit signal power and multipath reflections that can be frequency or flat fades.”

Millimeter-wave bands function in the 30 to 300GHz spectrum — a frequency being tested for 5G cellular networks.

If the patents come to anything it could be a boon for Free Basics. Free Basics, the brainchild of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, is a program from internet.org, a global initiative to make Internet access available to five billion new households in underdeveloped areas by 2023.

Google Another Step Closer to Getting Approval for Self-Driving Cars

The U.S.’s transport safety regulator has said the artificial intelligence system that drives Google’s autonomous cars could be considered an actual driver under federal law.

But the declaration by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is by no means the end of the matter. The process to make it law is a lengthy one.

“NHTSA recognizes that it can take substantial periods of time to develop some rulemaking proposals and final rules, including time spent obtaining review of those proposals and seeking and analyzing public comments,” the agency said in a letter to Google. 

“NHTSA further understands that the time it takes to conduct rulemakings may, in some instances, make such proceedings ill-suited as first-line regulatory mechanisms to address rapidly-evolving vehicle technologies.  That said, there are limits to the result the agency may reach in an interpretation, even if it believes that result might be sound policy.”

The letter comes in response to a Google request for advice on the interpretation of legal provisions for the operation of autonomous cars.

Due to all the red tape involved, the NHTSA is suggesting Google seek an exemption which can be made available if it can be demonstrated the product provides “equivalent levels of safety to those required by” the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.

Google’s self-driving car project director Chris Urmson has said self-driving cars will be on U.S. highways by 2020 if the tech titan has its way.

Google is likely the company the furthest ahead in the race to get autonomous cars into the hands of consumers. It already has more than 50 test vehicles on the road in California and Texas, with 1.3 million miles logged in autonomous driving.  Google began testing its own self-driving prototypes on California streets last June. Before that the company was testing Lexus prototypes equipped with its software and sensors.
