Self-driving cars will eventually be called upon to do the fun stuff as well as the boring stuff, as the percentage of people who learn how to drive slowly drops off. Thus, Land Rover has already begun developing autonomous technology for off-road 4WD action...

The Skydio R1 aerial "self-flying camera" received its first major software update today, gaining four new cinematic modes: Quarter Lead, Quarter Follow, Car Follow, and Car Tripod. Skydio underscores the new Car Follow mode as the biggest new feature, one that enables the drone to follow vehicles autonomously while capturing footage.Talking about the software update is Skydio CEO Adam Bry, who s
Nestled in between satellites and drones are autonomous aerial vehicles known as High Altitude Pseudo Satellites (HAPS), which can soar at the edges of space for long periods of time, acting as telecommunications relays or environmental monitors. Now, UAVOS has conducted test flights of its ApusDuo prototype, an autonomous, solar-powered aircraft with flexible wings that bend and bounce to
Nobody likes traffic, and while someday soon we might be chartering flying taxis to zip over it, cities like Amsterdam have another alternative – an intricate network of canals. The RoBoat project is planning to get autonomous boats on those waters to ferry passengers and cargo, join together to form temporary floating structures, and monitor the environment. Now the design has been tweake
Aurora Flight Services' Autonomous Aerial Cargo Utility System (AACUS) took another step forward as an AACUS-enabled UH-1H helicopter autonomously delivered 520 lb (236 kg) of water, gasoline, MREs, communications gear, and a cooler capable of carrying urgent supplies such as blood to US Marines in the field...

NASA’s next rover mission to the red planet is scheduled to launch july 2020. The post NASA mars helicopter to be the first autonomous aircraft on the red planet appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Robots are already largely inspired by the bodies of animals, so why not mimic their behaviors too? Swarms of insects and schools of fish have inspired engineers to create groups of robots that move as one entity, and now Aquabotix has unleashed SwarmDiver, a series of small synchronized swimmers loaded with sensors for defense, research or monitoring applications...Continue Reading Aquabotix
Last May we heard about the Yara Birkeland, which is planned to be the world's first all-electric and autonomous container ship. When it enters full autonomous control in 2020, it will likely be under the auspices of the just-announced world's first autonomous shipping company, Massterly...Continue Reading "World's first autonomous shipping company" announced in NorwayCategory: MarineTags:
Ahead of a major United Nations meeting to address the growing issues surrounding lethal autonomous weapons, a team of leading AI and robotics researchers has called for a boycott of a South Korean university that recently announced the opening of an AI weapons lab...Continue Reading AI experts call for boycott of South Korean university over autonomous weapons researchCategory: RoboticsTags:
Autonomous cars could prove to be splendid news for parking, according to new research from the University of Toronto. Because self-driving cars can park themselves, you can get out beforehand. Since you don't need to open the door once parked you can cram many more cars in. But according to the researchers, if autonomous cars work together, even more space can be saved – though perhaps not s is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics. We focus on hi-tech reviews, gadgets and geekery but we like almost anything that's awesome, appealing and thought-provoking! er6i9ds5mz
