Empathy for robots can have life-changing consequences for troops

It is increasingly common to use robots in war zones to examine and disarm hazards or recover objects with the understanding that the loss of a robot is a far more acceptable outcome than the death of a solider.

Robotic thread is designed to slip through the brain's blood vessels

Engineers have developed a magnetically steerable, thread-like robot that can actively glide through narrow, winding pathways, such as the labrynthine vasculature of the brain.

Study identifies main culprit behind lithium metal battery failure

A research team has discovered the root cause of why lithium metal batteries fail—bits of lithium metal deposits break off from the surface of the anode during discharging and are trapped as "dead" or inactive lithium that the battery can no longer access.

Military Vehicles on Land

The need for electric vehicles in military applications is strong. The speed of advance of an army is still limited by speed of providing fuel and other "materiel" as they call it. 20% of deaths are suffered simply providing fuel. The US Military has a program to reduce fuel consumption by 70% because of this.

Fuel cell EVs fit in where?

Time was when fuel cells were to be in every bike then every motorbike then they were pushed back to ever larger vehicles. The IDTechEx take is that fuel cells are most likely to find their place where batteries cannot give the range and where few of the expensive charging station systems are needed meaning fleets and trains.
