You're getting too personal and sarcastic like some others here.  Why don't you address people's points instead of attacking them?

I couldn't have less interest in receiving tips on posting etiquette from anyone on this site than I do from you.

That's the way things work in the Washington swamp. 

There you go again...  No one cares about the Washington swamp anymore.
Swamp?  Who cares about swamps?

It's interesting to watch the way people rationalize. "No one cares about the Washington swamp anymore"—until you care.

You're happy to compare Trump and and Biden if you think that comparison somehow puts Trump in a more favorable light. As soon as someone points out that one of your Biden attacks looks pretty good compared to Trump, your response is...

It's not about Trump anymore

It's not about Trump.

We do. Your points are consistently addressed and challenged if need be.
For instance "America is not the world", which you conveniently ignore.

You profile (fingerprint) device behavior.
You calibrate then profile as a result.
If the device drifts, calibration returns the behavior (or it should), the profile continues to properly define the device behavior.

No, Alan, I'm just keenly interested in it - as an engineer, driver and investor.
I started to drive cars and army trucks when I was 10 (my father worked for a decade as a driving instructor - after the communists took away his store, and he let me drive on countless trips from his teaching days back to our home), one pillow under my bum, the other against my back and I still had to lift my head to see the road. Double clutching, downshifting and turning the large steering wheel without a power steering was not easy at that age, but I didn't know any better and also had a strict and uncompromising teacher.

For the last 15 years, I got resigned to driving cars with automatic transmission, but I still enjoy much more driving shift stick when I'm in Europe, both on Autobahn and on small country roads.
The first car I bought was from another GI when I was stationed in Japan in 1965.  It was a 1948 Buick, Fluid-drive I think they called it.  It was one of the first semi-automatic shifts.  Something was wrong with it.  It wouldn't stay in third and kept slipping back into 2nd.  Of course, at that time, you couldn't go very fast on Japanese roads.  So 2nd was fine. 

Plus I only paid $200 for it.  Actually, my Japanese friend who worked on the base paid for it.  It was cheaper for him to let me buy it and put it in my name since he would have to pay Japanese import duties.  So I drove it a lot and when he used it, I had given him a note that stated he was my chauffeur and was allowed to drive it. 

We used to visit all his relatives who owned bars and restaurants where we'd get drunk for free and have a blast. When I got out of the service I bought a 1968 Datsun 2000 (now called Nissan), a two-seater, four-speed manual shift roadster with a convertible top. I paid $2800 for it, almost less than it costs to fill up my SUV today.

Les, you seem to be very knowledgeable about the industry.  Do you work in it or act in some advisory role?

You are free to move on if you can't take the heat, facts and stand up to your weak positions.

Actually, too many here are doing a really good job of attacking your ideas and writings. It isn't at all personal. You're just so often wrong and so often that is clearly illustrated by your peers (if I can be so kind).
What do we owe people who are wrong? What do we owe people who are so frequently wrong?

Indeed, there are quite a few current developments which attract different opinions. Many debaters are not aware of the latest discoveries and blindly quote ten year old axioms. There is a lot of relevant information on the latest automotive and industrial breakthroughs on youtube and other platforms dispensed by very knowledgeable people who cover these developments in a timely manner and in a great detail. Here is a short list of the top such channels/youtubers - Tesla Daily, Dr. Knows It All, Munro Live, Now You Know, Warren Redlich, Electric Viking, Electrified, E for Electric. There are many other similar channels with slightly different topics and somewhat less competent reporters.

As to the "not unreasonable opinion on vehicles driving without Lidar", it might be useful to know that Google Waymo which in 2017 developed and started to sell their own brand of Lidar. called "Laser Bear Honeycomb",  has now abandoned and stopped selling this equipment. Google (or Alphabet) spent so far over $3.5B on the Waymo project which has been a total fiasco when compared to other competitors in this field. Meanwhile the Tesla company which initially also used Lidar, found out through extensive in-field experience that their Self Driving system is much more effective using pure vision rather than relying on a mix of different sensors.

You're a good guy. I like you. That doesn't mean that I won't point out to you when you look like you're starting to hyperventilate. Think of it as something that a friendly person would bring to your attention.

P.S. I'm not keeping any score, so there aren't any points and no game being played.

Looks like Trump will make some money from it as well.
Key word (key assumption, so many in one day) "will". And why would Trump do anything that didn't make him money; he needs it, look at the latest Forbes list, he's no longer on. 
Or he does something to up his ego.
Yeah, he's not the great and rich business man you think he is by a long shot. Case in point, more facts to ignore:

Donald Trump's luxury hotel in
Washington, D.C., received $3.7
million from foreign govern-
ments during his term in office,
according to federal documents
released by a House committee.
Still, the hotel lost $72 million
over those four years.

Looks like Trump will need to make some money from it as well.
 Let's recycle this old line:Now why do you keep brining up Trump? Biden is the president
