Autonomous Vehicles


​What’s New: At the Intel Vision event, Intel demonstrated the possibilities that open when the company pairs a high-bandwidth, low-latency private 5G wireless network with edge computing devices. Intel collaborated with Federated Wireless and Blue White Robotics to deliver technology that enables self-driving tractors at a California vineyard to automate repetitive tasks and free workers to take on higher-value responsibilities. “As we look …

An autonomous spacecraft exploring the far-flung regions of the universe descends through the atmosphere of a remote exoplanet. The vehicle, and the researchers who programmed it, don’t know much about this environment.   With so much uncertainty, how can the spacecraft plot a trajectory that will keep it from being squashed by some randomly moving …

San Francisco’s roads are a notoriously tough place for people to drive. Narrow streets, busy pedestrian traffic, and an extensive network of bicycle routes make driving through San Francisco roughly 40 times more complex than driving in a suburban environment, according to Cruise data. This level of complexity makes San Francisco, America’s second densest city, …

Engineers that build last-mile delivery services belong to an elite order, a hallowed subcategory. Delivery customers are incredibly demanding when it comes to speed and convenience, and the services they use must take variables like increased traffic, road conditions, human error, and even driver availability into account every day. Nuro is a company with a new …

If you don’t get seasick, an autonomous boat might be the right mode of transportation for you. Scientists from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and the Senseable City Laboratory, together with Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS Institute) in the Netherlands, have now created the final project in their self-navigating trilogy: …

MIT’s fleet of robotic boats has been updated with new capabilities to “shapeshift,” by autonomously disconnecting and reassembling into a variety of configurations, to form floating structures in Amsterdam’s many canals. The autonomous boats — rectangular hulls equipped with sensors, thrusters, microcontrollers, GPS modules, cameras, and other hardware — are being developed as part of the …

Google I/O 2019 | Teaching a Car to Drive Itself by Imitation and Imagination Training a neural net to drive by pure observation requires ensuring that good behavior is being learned from the right signals and that test results in simulation can be transferred to the real world. This talk will walk you through the …
