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...

The autonomous car’s reality check

The autonomous car’s reality check   A CAR sprouting a dome containing a spinning laser sensor and festooned with cameras barely draws a second glance as it edges through the crowded streets of Berkeley. Self-driving cars are no longer a rare sight on Californian roads. Over 100 autonomous vehicles from a dozen manufacturers are now being tested in public, covering hundreds of thousands of kilometres each year. But this car is different: its human driver keeps his hands firmly on the wheel. The vehicle, nicknamed “George” by... [Lire la suite]

Goodyear presented the Eagle 360 Urban concept tire with IA

At the Geneva International Motor Show 2017, Goodyear presented the Eagle 360 Urban concept tire. The design builds on the concept unveiled last year with the Eagle-360 and adds Artificial Intelligence, a bionic skin and a morphing tread to the mix. By including these features, the tire can sense road and weather conditions, decide the appropriate course of action and if necessary, transform to the optimal tread. Using the data it has collected, the tire can morph its tread, adding ‘dimples’ for wet conditions and giving it a slick... [Lire la suite]
