Transport in an age of robots
Transport is about to have a massive shift as automation becomes more competent and accepted. Many drivers will be displaced as autonomous vehicles become cheaper, more reliable, and government regulations change to accomodate the new technology. Drone technology may soon become your own personal flying car – just like the Jetsons!
Use of ethanol in vehicles reduces pollution by nanoparticles, a study shows. Levels of ultrafine particulate matter in São Paulo City, Brazil, increased by up to 30 percent at times when ethanol prices rose and consumption fell.
Ostring and Südtangente belong to the first section of the circuit in Karlsruhe for the Baden-Württemberg test field for automated and networked driving.
Researchers report transforming lignin into carbon fiber to produce a lower-cost material strong enough to build car or aircraft parts.
High School summer STEM camp teaches robotics to underserved Central Texas students.
Researchers from EPFL and UNIL have developed an encryption protocol that can put drivers in touch with passengers while keeping their personal data secret.
The expectations concerning automated driving are running high. Some 95 percent of the technology is ready but ‘the last percentages are the hardest’, says Professor Dariu Gavrila. Most of the scientific challenges lie in the complexities of urban traffic and in...
Being able to both walk and take flight is typical in nature — many birds, insects, and other animals can do both. If we could program robots with similar versatility, it would open up many possibilities: Imagine machines that could fly into construction areas or...
VTT develops new technology for autonomous ship navigation systems: Autopilot steers during evasive manoeuvres and docking
VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland is developing safe steering for the remote-monitored and controlled autonomous ships of the future. The new technology has been developed for navigation systems and ship autopilots, which steer ships automatically.
The drive toward putting autonomous cars on the road is in full gear, with most major automobile manufacturers vowing to release such vehicles in the next decade or so. When that happens, research by the School of Engineering and Technology at Indiana...
