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.
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
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.
Using our technology, we are able to reduce the cost of the whole vehicle (including the chassis, the computing hardware, and the sensing hardware, and the software stack) under $10,000 USD.
Unlike memory folks in the audience who like to keep their secrets secret, Hyundai/Kia and Bzeih have laid out their roadmap for the next decade with some autonomous systems by 2020 and mass production by 2022.
We believe three components are critical for turning self-driving cars into a mass product: power-efficient hardware, optimized algorithms and a solid regulatory environment. While none of these components are fully ready at this stage, competition and advances in technology are speeding the process for the first two.
Recent research by companies like Waymo are paving the way for others and their own work, and it won't be long before self-driving trucks are on the road once and for all.
Built on 10 years of commercial experience, recent trip logs 1,000+ miles autonomously
Darrell Etherington for TechCrunch: Now Torc is setting its sights on the consumer car market, with a self-driving car project based on its decade of experience
Naomi Tajitsu for Reuters: Unveiling its mid-term Vision 2030 strategy plan, Honda said it would boost coordination between R&D, procurement and manufacturing to tame development costs.
Matt Day for Seattle Times: Echodyne's radar arrays are designed to bring some of the power and precision of massive, heavy, military-grade radars to a tablet-sized device.

Since Robotmaster V7 uses integrated CAD/CAM functionality, for the first time, the power of Robotmaster can be used by welding, cutting and other process experts without buying or learning complex CAD/CAM software. As in past versions, Robotmaster V7 imports paths, but now makes it even easier for end users to leverage any CAD/CAM tool choice. It is an intuitive tool that anyone could use, with or without robotics expertise. It bridges the gap between robots and manufacturing by providing easy programming solutions for part manufacturing.
