prospective : Will future automotive products still need wheels ?

Will future automotive products still need wheels ? It is very interesting to see what is happening in the robotics research labs. Seeing this, almost everyone thinks aboutmilitary applications (that is why DARPA gives money for those researches), about industrial applications where human beings may be in danger (nuclear industry, ...), and also about space quest (Mars, Moon, and further). But think, would is be interesting for individual mobility ? :. invalid persons artificial arms and legs (medicine application). mobility... [Lire la suite]
