Since 2010, ABB has powered forward the global e-mobility transition with a host of technological achievements. We list some of the most notable highlights here. 2010 ABB provides Europe’s first 50kW charger (Netherlands) The first commercial EV charging station in Europe is opened in Holland, equipped with a 50kW ABB fast-charger. The station is located …

George Konidaris still remembers his disheartening introduction to robotics. “When you’re a young student and you want to program a robot, the first thing that hits you is this immense disappointment at how much you can’t do with that robot,” he says. Most new roboticists want to program their robots to solve interesting, complex tasks …

MIT researchers have developed a wireless, private way to monitor a person’s sleep postures — whether snoozing on their back, stomach, or sides — using reflected radio signals from a small device mounted on a bedroom wall. The device, called BodyCompass, is the first home-ready, radio-frequency-based system to provide accurate sleep data without cameras or …

With COVID-19 causing uncertainty about voting logistics and procedures across the country, IBM has technology to help states use the AI capabilities of Watson to put this critical data and information directly into the hands of voters. With states facing a deluge of information requests related to voting procedures, citizens may face wait times to receive answers to their …

The national dialogue on race has progressed powerfully and painfully in the past year, and issues of racial bias in the news have become ubiquitous. However, for over a decade, researchers from MIT’s Imagination, Computation, and Expression Laboratory (ICE Lab) have been developing systems to model, simulate, and analyze such issues of identity. In recent …

“Hey Alexa, turn on the kitchen light.” “Hey Alexa, play soothing music at volume three.” “Hey Alexa, tell me where to find my keys.” You can ask an Alexa or Google home assistant questions about facts, news, or the weather, and make commands for whatever you’ve synced them to (lights, alarms, TVs, etc.). But helping …

The coronavirus pandemic has forced us to quickly adapt to circumstances that were unimaginable a year ago. Companies are finding new ways to do business, and in the process we’re seeing an acceleration of technologies that, though they were already in the pipeline, would have taken several more years to really pick up speed. One …

Researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH) have developed a new hot-​wire cutting robot, RoboCut. It is able to carve complex shapes from a block in significantly fewer cuts than previous systems, as was reported in a press release. To achieve this, ETH researchers have integrated all aspects of the optimization calculations …

Global technology company ABB and Hydrogen Optimized have agreed to jointly explore the development of large-scale green hydrogen production systems connected to the electrical grid to offer a clean, sustainable and affordable energy source. Hydrogen Optimized has ambitions to use its high current water electrolysis technology at scale to produce green hydrogen for emerging clean …
