In tests, the system guided a robot to maneuver autonomously and swiftly across sandy surfaces, gravel, grass, and bumpy dirt hills covered with branches and fallen leaves without bumping into poles, trees, shrubs, boulders, benches or people. The robot also navigated a busy office space without bumping into boxes, desks or chairs.

New underwater camera could help scientists explore unknown regions of the ocean, track pollution, or monitor the effects of climate change.

More than 95 percent of Earth’s oceans have never been observed, according to estimates by scientists, which means we have seen less of our planet’s ocean than we have the far side of the moon or the surface of Mars.

One steep challenge preventing widespread undersea exploration is the high cost of powering an underwater camera for a long time. Doing so now requires tethering it to a research vessel or frequently sending a ship to recharge its b...   Continue reading ››

Drones could 3D print a building

  1 year ago (Mon, Sep 26, 2022 at 05:09 AM)

Researchers have mounted 3D printers onto drones with the aim of creating swarms of robots that could 3D print entire buildings. The aerial vehicles were specially designed to be able to deposit a cement-like material with enough precision to build tall structures. Groups of them together could do the job even faster. The idea is that 3D printed shelters could be greener than standard construction methods, and drones could be useful in reaching difficult to access areas.

CO2 and methane can be turned into valuable products. But until now the catalysts required for such reactions quickly lose their effectiveness. TU Wien has now developed more stable alternatives.

Wherever the production of harmful greenhouse gases cannot be prevented, they should be converted into something useful: this approach is called "carbon capture and utilisation". Special catalysts are needed for this. Until now, however, the problem has been that a layer of carbon quickly forms on these catalysts - this is called "coking" - and the catalyst loses its effect.

Lessons from natural photosynthesis: conversion of CO2 to raw materials for plastic!

  1 year ago (Tue, Aug 23, 2022 at 09:59 AM)

Technology sequesters CO2 emissions

In plants, natural photosynthesis binds carbon dioxide (CO2) to organic compounds, which can then be converted into glucose or starch. These useful molecules can be sequestered, storing the carbon in a solid form. Artificial photosynthesis mimics this process by reducing the greenhouse gas CO2—the main cause of climate change—which is converted into other useful substances.

Researchers from Osaka Metropolitan University have managed to create fumarate using artificial photosynthesis on pyruvate and CO2. This fumarate can be used to make biodegradab...   Continue reading ››

Designers find better solutions with computer assistance, but sacrifice creative touch

  2 years ago (Wed, May 25, 2022 at 09:40 AM)

From building software to designing cars, engineers grapple with complex design situations every day. 'Optimizing a technical system, whether it’s making it more usable or energy-efficient, is a very hard problem!' says Antti Oulasvirta, professor of electrical engineering at Aalto University and the Finnish Center for Artificial Intelligence. Designers often rely on a mix of intuition, experience and trial and error to guide them. Besides being inefficient, this process can lead to ‘design fixation’, homing in on familiar solutions while new avenues go unexplored. A ‘manual’ approac...   Continue reading ››

AI predicts infant age, gender based on temperament

  2 years ago (Wed, May 11, 2022 at 05:05 PM)

A new study in PLOS ONE used machine learning to analyze temperament data on 4,438 babies in an attempt to classify the infants by gender and age.

The results indicate it is far easier for computer algorithms to determine the age of a baby than it is for them to decipher a baby’s gender based off temperament data during the infant’s first 48 weeks of life.

The Roc carrier aircraft, the biggest airplane ever built, completed its fifth test flight this Star Wars Day.

Roc, made by the hypersonic vehicle company Stratolaunch, is the largest airplane in the world, with a wingspan stretching 385 feet (117 meters) across. The 500,000-pound (about 227,000 kilograms) aircraft is designed to carry hypersonic vehicles into the air. Today, Roc, which looks something like a "double airplane" aced its fifth flight, following its last test flight in February. These tests will ensure that Roc is ready to perform its duties.

How to print a robot from scratch: New 3D-printing approach melds solids, liquids

  2 years ago (Tue, Apr 19, 2022 at 08:54 AM)

Imagine a future in which you could 3D-print an entire robot or stretchy, electronic medical device with the press of a button—no tedious hours spent assembling parts by hand.

That possibility may be closer than ever thanks to a recent advancement in 3D-printing technology led by engineers at CU Boulder. In a new study, the team lays out a strategy for using currently available printers to create materials that meld solid and liquid components—a tricky feat if you don’t want your robot to collapse.

Want to 3D Print a Kidney? Start By Thinking Small

  2 years ago (Fri, Apr 15, 2022 at 02:30 PM)

Human organ transplants offer a crucial lifeline to people with serious illnesses, but there are too few organs to go around: in the U.S. alone, there are more than 112,000 people currently waiting for transplants. The promise of 3D printing organs is one possible solution to address this shortage but has been fraught with complexity and technical barriers, limiting the type of organs that can be printed. Researchers at Stevens Institute of Technology are now pushing through these barriers by leveraging a decades-old technique to reproduce any tissue type.
