Drones vs. driverless cars: A tale of two robotics policies

Drones vs. driverless cars: A tale of two robotics policies When a 2-pound drone crashed on the White House lawn in January, the nation was thrown into drone hysteria. That drone was a $1,000 model made by Chinese technology company DJI, but a basic camera-equipped drone can be had for $40—a fact not lost on those who pontificated about the crash. “It’s pretty worrisome if you’re in the Secret Service, you’re in law enforcement, a drone comes in and you don’t know if this is some 14-year-old kid who got a drone or if this is...

CES 2017: Nasa’s helping Nissan make driverless cars

CES 2017: Nasa’s helping Nissan make driverless cars     Nissan’s autonomous car drive has gained significant momentum at the CES show in Las Vegas. The Japanese carmaker has put a timeline to its plans, and confirmed the MkII Leaf – due in the next year or two – will get semi-autonomous functionality as standard. It has also collaborated with Nasa to help develop something called SAM (Seamless Autonomous Mobility) that means proper self-driving vehicles – taxis and vans with no drivers in them at all...

Tech Briefs of NASA on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems

Tech Briefs of NASA on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Advanced driver assistance systems (ADASs) enhance vehicle systems for safety by helping a driver avoid collisions through new technology implementations. In some cases, the systems take over control of the vehicle. ADASs can help automate lighting, provide adaptive cruise control, automate braking, incorporate GPS and traffic warnings, connect to smartphones, alert drivers to other cars or dangers, keep drivers in the correct lane, and show what is in blind spots. ADAS... [Lire la suite]
