University of Michigan unveils MCity to Test connected Self Driving Autonomous Vehicles

University of Michigan unveils MCity, the world’s first full scale simulated urban environment  for testing of connected autonomous self-driving vehicles In general, most of the vehicle accidents happen due to distraction by our cellphone or by traffic signals or by our carelessness. But what if your car had the ability to communicate with the other […]

Evolution of Self Driving Autonomous Car

Evolution of Self Driving Autonomous Car

Autonomous robotics have gone through a lot of evolution in the last few decades. One of the technology that has be most talked and invested on is self driving Autonomous Car. The research in autonomous field started in early 60s and first self-sufficient and truly autonomous cars appeared in the 1980s with Carnegie Mellon University. But the real kick start […]

BRIDGES Project:  Europe’s Deepest Autonomous Robot Glider to be Developed

BRIDGES Project: Europe’s Deepest Autonomous Robot Glider to be Developed

BRIDGES (Bringing together Research and Industry for the Development of Glider Environmental Services) is four year project. 19 partners from across Europe have come together to develop Europe’s first ultra-deep-sea robot glider. This glider will be capable of sampling the ocean autonomously at depths of 5000m, and maybe more in the future, for up to […]
