Autonomous Solutions, Inc. Awarded 3rd DOD Funded Project for the Development of Driverless Vehicle Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

Autonomous Solutions, Inc. (ASI) has been awarded additional funding through the Department of Defense (DoD) to further apply machine learning and artificial intelligence to improve the mobility and behavior of autonomous vehicles in challenging environments.

Autonomous Solutions, Inc. (ASI) has been awarded additional funding through the Department of Defense (DoD) to further apply machine learning and artificial intelligence to improve the mobility and behavior of autonomous vehicles in challenging environments.

Two other ongoing programs with the government include the development of machine learning for obstacle classification, LIDAR-camera fusion, and vehicle auto tuning using artificial intelligence. The developments will enable ASIs autonomous ground vehicles to adapt in real time to difficult dynamic environments for automotive, agriculture, mining, construction, floor cleaning, security surveillance, and lawn mowing robots.
"In order for us to maintain our leadership in the unmanned vehicle space we must continue to push the boundaries of what is possible with machine learning and artificial intelligence," says CEO and founder of ASI, Mel Torrie. "These programs will ensure that we continue to offer our customers and partners the most advanced safe and simple autonomous solutions."
"The ability for vehicles to learn from past experience and continuously improve as they drive is important. These benefits multiply as the robots share their learning with other vehicles in the area in real time. The use of Machine Learning and AI will enable huge strides in efficiency improvement and maintenance reduction," says Dr. Jeff Ferrin, Research and Development General Manager.
Mel Torrie will be sharing more about this exciting technology development at the Silicon Valley Innovation and Entrepreneurship Conference in Beijing China on 15 July 2017 and at the Silicon Valley-China AI & Investment Forum on 19 July 2017 in Santa Clara, California in an AI session alongside leading pioneers in this space from companies like Tesla, IBM, Facebook, and Samsung.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
