Strobe are developing lidar modules. The company were acquired by Cruise Automation (USA) in 2017.
The Swiss Army Knife of gene editing gets new control
When researchers want to edit, activate, or silence a gene in any living organism, from bacteria to humans, they often turn to CRISPR/Cas9, a complex of RNA and protein that can act like a genetic Swiss Army Knife.
Self-folding "Rollbot" paves the way for fully untethered soft robots
The majority of soft robots today rely on external power and control, keeping them tethered to off-board systems or rigged with hard components. Now, researchers have developed soft robotic systems, inspired by origami, that can move and change shape in response to external stimuli, paving the way for fully untethered soft robots.
Ultra-thin layers of rust generate electricity from flowing water
Rust is a common problem on infrastructure, but new research shows that when it's combined with salt water, it can also be a source of electricity.
Using AI to land drones smoothly
New system employs a deep neural network to overcome the challenge of ground-effect turbulenc.
Crystalline Mirror Solutions (CMS)
Crystalline Mirror Solutions (CMS) manufacture low-noise, reflective optical components based on a patented coating technology.
'Wearable' device captures cancer cells from blood
A prototype wearable device, tested in animal models, can continuously collect live cancer cells directly from a patient's blood.
Iron-platinum catalyst keeps fuel cells clean, even in cold weather
Batteries are currently outpacing fuel cells in the technological race to power the electric vehicle. Lithium batteries keep getting cheaper, while fuel cells remain hampered by pricey, short-lived platinum catalysts. Researchers suggest that adding a bit more platinum—albeit in a novel form—could help fuel cell cars catch up.
A robot that can walk and fly
The robot is known as LEONARDO, an acronym for LEg ON Aerial Robotic DrOne, or Leo for short. It has a capability most robots these days just don't have: It can both walk and fly.

IDTechEx spoke to Stephanie Probasco, Director of Marketing, Consumer Products at Advanced TeleSensors Inc.
Breakthrough battery chemistry from Honda Research
The joint study reports that the research team has opened new doors in the development of high energy-density batteries capable of meeting rapidly growing energy storage needs by overcoming the current temperature limitations of fluoride-based battery technology and by demonstrating the room-temperature operation of fluoride-ion based energy cells.
TuSimple is a startup founded in 2015. The company has now closed $82 million in financing to develop an autonomous software for a level 4 autonomous truck by 2020.
Artificial neural network recognizes 'molecular handwriting'
Researchers have developed an artificial neural network made out of DNA that can solve a classic machine learning problem: correctly identifying handwritten numbers. The work is a significant step in demonstrating the capacity to program artificial intelligence into synthetic biomolecular circuits.
Machine learning algorithm can tell how smart you are
If you've ever lied about your IQ to seem more intelligent, it's time to fess up. Scientists can now tell how smart you are just by looking at a scan of your brain. Actually, to be more precise, the scientists themselves aren't looking at your brain scan; a machine-learning algorithm they've developed is.
Using machine learning to see inside live human cells
The first predictive and comprehensive, 3D model of a live human cell, allowing researchers around the world to see many structures inside a living cell together at the same time.
Smart skin for flexible monitoring
An electronic tag that stretches and flexes while it records location and environmental data can monitor marine animals in their natural habitat as reported in Printed Electronics World.
