Into the Woods: This Drone Goes Where No GPS Can

Into the Woods: This Drone Goes Where No GPS Can

By Jamie Beckett | Jun 14, 2017 @ 13:50 | Most drones would be lost without GPS. Not this one. A drone developed by NVIDIA researchers navigates even the most far-flung, unmapped places using only deep learning and computer vision powered by NVIDIA Jetson TX1 embedded AI supercomputers. Although initially designed to follow forest trails to […]

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 […]

Human’s Nose can act as Built-in GPS

Human’s Nose can act as Built-in GPS

UC Berkeley researchers show that we can use our sense of smell not just to identify objects, but to navigate. The results evoke a GPS-like superpower one could call an “olfactory positioning system.” Like homing pigeons, humans have a nose for navigation because our brains are wired to convert smells into spatial information, new research […]
