New Way To Test Self Driving Cars Could Cut 99.9 Percent Of Validation Costs

May 24, 2017 @ 18:47 | Mobility researchers at the University of Michigan have devised a new way to test autonomous Self Driving Cars that bypasses the billions of miles they would need to log for consumers to consider them road-ready. The process, which was developed using data from more than 25 million miles of […]

Virtual Top Hats Allow Swarming Robots to Fly in Tight Formation

Virtual Top Hats Allow Swarming Robots to Fly in Tight Formation

By Jason Maderer | May 16, 2017 @ 06:12 | Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have created a team of free-flying Swarming robots that obeys the two rules of the air: don’t collide or undercut each other. They’ve also built autonomous blimps that recognize hand gestures and detect faces. In the first, five swarm quadcopters zip […]

Swarms of Autonomous Aerial Vehicles Test New Dogfighting Skills

By John Toon| Apr 24, 2017 @ 17:40|  Researchers from the Georgia Tech and Naval Postgraduate School pitted two swarms of autonomous aircraft against one another over a military test facility. Aerial dogfighting began more than a century ago in the skies over Europe with propeller-driven fighter aircraft carried aloft on wings of fabric and wood. […]

Brain’s Navigation is More Complex than GPS

Brain’s Navigation is More Complex than GPS

 BY NATHAN COLLINS | Apr 9, 2017 @ 12:38| Neuroscientists’ discovered that our brain’s Navigation is more complicated than anyone had guessed. Just like a driver in a car, the brain needs some basic navigational instruments to get around, and it is not an idle analogy. In fact, scientists have found brain cells that are similar […]
