Crumple up this keyboard and stick it in your pocket

Crumple up this keyboard and stick it in your pocket

Jun 22, 2018 Korea
Bendable portable keyboards for use with computers and other electronic devices are already on the market, but they have limited flexibility, and they're fairly sizable when rolled up for transport. Now researchers have crafted an inexpensive keyboard that is so tough, flexible and thin that it can be crumpled up and tucked in a pocket without damaging it.

MIT engineers build smart power outlet

MIT engineers build smart power outlet

Jun 21, 2018 United States
An MIT team has developed a solution that they are calling a "smart power outlet," in the form of a device that can analyze electrical current usage from a single or multiple outlets, and can distinguish between benign arcs — harmless electrical spikes such as those caused by common household appliances — and dangerous arcs, such as sparking that results from faulty wiring and could lead to a fire. The device can also be trained to…

Making driverless cars change lanes more like human drivers do

Making driverless cars change lanes more like human drivers do

Jun 1, 2018 United States
In the field of self-driving cars, algorithms for controlling lane changes are an important topic of study. But most existing lane-change algorithms have one of two drawbacks: Either they rely on detailed statistical models of the driving environment, which are difficult to assemble and too complex to analyze on the fly; or they're so simple that they can lead to impractically conservative decisions, such as never changing lanes at all.

Autonomous robot weeder challenges traditional methods

May 30, 2018 Switzerland
The robot works without being controlled by a human operator. It covers the ground just by getting its bearings and positioning itself with the help of its camera, GPS RTK and sensors. Its system of vision enables it to follow crop rows, and to detect the presence and position of weeds in and between the rows. Two robotic arms then apply a microdose of herbicide, systematically targeting the weeds that have been detected.

European cities soon to be ready for autonomous vehicles

May 23, 2018 Switzerland
Autonomous vehicles promise to be the next revolution in public transport. But for these new services to develop, we must first identify the needs and motivations of their future users and be able to respond to them, meet many of the technological and regulatory challenges, and design new business models. This is the aim of the 4 year AVENUE project consortium, with a total budget of 22 million euros and funded by the European Commission up to the level of 16 million euros.

Drawing closer to people combining robot technology and AI

May 17, 2018 Japan
Robots are starting to help make our lives more enjoyable and convenient in everyday situations. An example is a service using robots in business, in a hospital, where robots use gestures and speech to guide people who are having trouble with automated reception machines. What allows this to happen is the robots communication skills, in particular its use of emotional expressions.
