Student Engineers Participating in 3-Year AutoDrive Challenge Are Working to Invent Autonomous Vehicle Future.
We're currently on the precipice of the driverless vehicle revolution, with most of these companies rolling out fully autonomous cars sometime between the end of the year and 2021. It won't be much longer now until getting behind the wheel doesn't require turning it yourself
Autonomous mobile robots are a simple, efficient and cost-effective way to automate material handling and in-house transportation tasks in nearly any situation where employees would previously have been required to push carts around the facility.
Yeti has the goal to develop an autonomous snow clearing service for use on future airports. The product will be introduced in steps, in parallel with the development of technology for self-driving vehicles.
Software developers must anticipate that laws and regulations will inevitably change over time, and they should consider developing processes to update and adapt to new or revised legal requirements.
When people start thinking of a car as something you subscribe to and/or share, we can dramatically reduce the number of vehicles on the road and cities around the globe can recycle the land and convert it into something really useful, like affordable housing.
I believe well see at least 10 percent of all miles driven in Level 4 vehicles (fully autonomous in most situations) by 2030, with the initial deployment in large metro areas.
In this article, I discuss the primary reasons why autonomous vehicles are emerging, what factors go into developing self-driving cars, and how energy storage is a vital part of autonomous vehicle design.
For a lot of people, the idea of trusting your life to a computer hurtling you down the road sounds foolhardy. The whole idea behind the autonomous vehicle is to eliminate human error and deliver zero street/road fatalities - awesome, but impossible.
By coupling its cloud and open autonomy platforms to disrupt agriculture, Northstar Robotics is on track to solve farm labor shortages and reduce farm input costs.
Incorporating ultracapacitors with batteries will greatly enable connectivity and autonomous driving features, helping automakers achieve the next level of innovation.
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.
The autonomy of trucking needs more governmental attention and support than personal vehicles or business and commerce will be stuck in some warehouse … somewhere.
Matt Simon for Wired: Give it coordinates, tell it what size the hole should be, hit enter, and it tears off and digs the thing with impressive accuracy.
Matt McFarland for CNN Money: Google, a company that's built everything from a search engine to a self-driving car, will now try its hand at a city neighborhood.

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
