Intelligent, shape-morphing, self-healing material
A step closer to integrated artificial muscle and nervous tissue, researchers develop an intelligent, shape-morphing, and self-healing material for soft robotics and wearable electronics.
Death of internal combustion: 1000 kilometers EV range
Electric aircraft have got there. Cars next. With no road resistance, the best electric aircraft, the Bye Aerospace eFlyer, achieves 1000km with its solar wing option. This range will be the final nail in the coffin of internal combustion cars. It is longer than some of them offer. With gasoline stations shutting down, guess who then gets range anxiety! See the IDTechEx reports, "Electric Vehicles 2020-2030" forecasting premium solar cars, mainstream solar cars and 98 other EV categories: unique detail. See also the IDTechEx report, "Manned Electric Aircraft 2020-2030".
Brain research decodes thoughts as words instantly
Scientists recently showed that brain activity recorded as research participants spoke could be used to create remarkably realistic synthetic versions of that speech, suggesting hope that one day such brain recordings could be used to restore voices to people who have lost the ability to speak. However, it took the researchers weeks or months to translate brain activity into speech, a far cry from the instant results that would be needed for such a technology to be clinically useful.
Electric Vehicle Energy Storage: Big Changes Ahead
Is it all about cars and extrapolation? Not anymore. The unique new IDTechEx report, "Lithium-Ion Batteries for Electric Vehicles 2020-2030" avoids mindless extrapolation. It uses fundamentals to predict huge changes in the electric vehicle business and the way these vehicles store electricity.
Testing the potential of solar batteries
Sharp Corporation and Toyota Motor Corporation to commence public road trials from late July 2019. The trials aim to assess the effectiveness of improvements in cruising range and fuel efficiency of electrified vehicles equipped with high-efficiency solar batteries.
Frankfurt Laser Company
Frankfurt Laser Company are an international distributor of laser diode products and a custom laser solution provider.
Teaching AI to connect senses like vision and touch
While our sense of touch gives us a channel to feel the physical world, our eyes help us immediately understand the full picture of these tactile signals. Robots that have been programmed to see or feel can't use these signals quite as interchangeably.
Economical energy storage for the electric car of tomorrow
A new production process with the aim of efficient and environmentally friendly future battery production. Researchers coat the electrodes of the energy storage cells with a dry film instead of liquid chemicals. This simplified process saves energy and eliminates toxic solvents
Automatic neurological disease diagnosis using deep learning
A team of researchers developed MNet, an automatic diagnosis system for neurological diseases using magnetoencephalography, demonstrating the possibility of making automatic neurological disease diagnoses.
Proofreading the book of life: Gene editing made safer
Making CRISPR immunosilent is the next step towards safe clinical applications.
Robots that can sort recycling
Every year trash companies sift through an estimated 68 million tons of recycling, which is the weight equivalent of more than 30 million cars.
AI to accurately predict the useful life of batteries
Wouldn't it be nice if battery manufacturers could tell which of their batteries will last at least two years and sell those to mobile phone makers, and which will last for ten years or more and sell those to electric vehicle manufacturers? New collaborative research shows how they could start doing that.
Audi reveals AI:ME autonomous vehicle
The Audi AI:ME, offers compact dimensions, a spacious, futuristic interior, and the ability to drive autonomously at level 4. This allows the occupants to do what they like with their time on board.
E-paper bus stop for Auckland Airport
The Urban signs, installed at the bus stops of the international arrivals terminal, each feature two 13.3"electronic paper screens, both providing Real Time Passenger Information to commuters.
Tidal energy licence revoked
Government of Nova Scotia has revoked the marine renewable-electricity licence issued to Cape Sharp Tidal Venture.
