Of the myriad autonomous UAV programs that have been conducted around the world, few have had the years of research dedicated to them like the ASTRAEA (Autonomous Systems Technology Related Airborne Evaluation & Assessment) initiative. After reporting on ASTRAEA back in 2007, the scheme ran for a further five years and tested all manner of systems over thousands of flying hours. Now one of th
As 3D printers shrink in size and price and make their way into more homes, they're starting to bring more of the higher-end functions, like the ability to print objects with multiple materials, down to the consumer level. German startup Next Dynamics has now unveiled the NexD1, a multi-color, multi-material 3D printer for the home that can use a conductive resin to create custom electronic c
At its York, Pennsylvania facility, BAE Systems has unveiled the first of 16 Amphibious Combat Vehicle (ACV) 1.1 prototypes it is developing for the US Marine Corps. The fully amphibious, ship-launchable and ship-recoverable 8x8 wheeled armored troop carrier is being developed under a US$103.7 million contract for the Engineering, Manufacturing, and Development phase of the ACV 1.1 program...
The gift-giving season is upon us and in the interests of ensuring that mining moguls, media magnates and real estate tycoons are not bereft of stocking stuffing ideas, or just for our own head-scratching amusement, it's time for our annual look at the most ludicrously luxurious wares that have crossed our desk this year. So as we hurtle towards year's end, here's a reminder of what you're no
We spend a lot of time covering big, exciting launches here at New Atlas, but there's more to the automotive world than glitzy concept cars and fire-breathing supercars. This year has seen plenty of production cars launched that, although not staggeringly beautiful or scarily fast, represent huge steps forward – both for their manufacturers and the people who buy them. Check out the best regu
Google's self-driving cars have been a major driver in advancing autonomous technology, logging more than 2 million miles (3.2 million km) of testing over the last seven years. Now the team has passed the next milestone by spinning off the self-driving car project into Waymo, a new company under the Alphabet umbrella. The aim is to commercialize the technology more widely...Continue Reading H

Currently, when the rubble at disaster sites is being moved, ordinary construction equipment is used. Scientists at several Japanese universities, however, are working on something more task-specific. They've created a remote-control robotic excavator, that is said to offer "drastically improved operability and mobility."..Continue Reading Robo-rescue-excavator is made to dig through debrisCa
3D printing is breaking down all kinds of barriers when it comes to made-to-fit products, ushering in everything from titanium heel replacements to self-built bridges. Adidas has been exploring these possibilities when it comes to footwear for a little while, now culminating in the launch of its first 3D-printed trainer for the public, the 3D Runner. ..Continue Reading Adidas launches its fir
