Constantine Samaras and Joshuah Stolaroff for Smithsonian: Reducing the need for trucking by delivering some packages with electric drones could save fuel, and potentially carbon emissions. But how much?
Laboratory News: For artificial systems to behave anything like living systems we need to fundamentally rethink the standard view of what behaviour is all about says Dr Rupert Young
The future of autonomous trucks is already here. Several states are laying the groundwork for these self-driving behemoths. California, Florida, Michigan and Utah have passed laws allowing autonomous trucks to drive in platoons.
Mike Murphy for MarketWatch: Boston Dynamics showed off its latest advanced robot Monday, which left some people wondering if it was a technological marvel or dystopian nightmare fuel.
Daniel Hurst for The Guardian: Japanese government wants to increase acceptance of technology that could help fill the gap in the nursing workforce
Mariella Moon for EnGadget: While the team's UAVs are scanning the skies, their tactical plane will focus on what's happening down below. The plane is equipped with high-resolution CCTVs with facial recognition
As you can see, the continued growth in the creation of drones only shows the shocking improvement in the world of software and tech devices. Just like Artificial Intelligence, it's another fantastic glimpse into the future!
Katie Fehrenbacher for GreenTechMedia: For drone makers, that means a drone could fly farther and longer on a single charge. For example, a drone surveying acres of crop land could fly for an hour instead of just 20 minutes with a standard battery.
David K. Williams for Forbes: The result: production has moved from one machine every 4-6 weeks to an average of 5 machines per month for a total of 130 worldwide and predominance in its sector, with pre-orders booked through June 2018.
The latest addition is a small crawler robot that magnetically "sticks" to metal walls and is able to move in all directions. It carries cameras, sensors and tools for inspection or maintenance work in tight pipes and on the outer hulls of tanks or ships.
A bot herder, is an individual who controls and maintains a botnet by installing malicious software in many computers, placing these devices under his/her control. These "herds" of bot machines, also called zombies, can then be used to attack or infect other computers.
Depending on how tests of below-ground and above-ground equipment progress, multiple technologies could be incorporated into single vehicles to make them maximally adaptable to operator needs.
In this article, we will explore the basis and the future implications of this major transition. We will focus on two applications in particular: agriculture and last mile delivery.
When people look up at the sky, they see more and more drones. Yet the breakthrough for delivery robots will take place on the ground - if the lawmakers give the green light.
The team was able to easily visualize and monitor collected data as they were conducting the survey. As one team member tele-operated the Jackal, another member connected wirelessly via SSH to the robot to visualize the data in RViz on a laptop.

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
