Honda showed off a slick new Sports EV concept at the Tokyo Motor Show earlier this week, but the automaker's most charming future-forward design to debut at the event isn't something you'll ever take for a drive. The Japanese company unveiled the RoboCas concept, an all-electric, self-driving cargo robot that looks like the offspring of the bot couple from Disney's WALL-E. I mean, just look at this thing. There's not a ton of information about the RoboCas concept in terms of specs, so we don't know how long its battery might last or what type of system enables the self-driving functionality beyond a reference to "Honda's autonomous mobility technology." Honda instead described the bot as a companion that was "born to make each person's ideas and dreams come true."
Fox Firepower: Defense Specialist Allison Barrie shares her top picks of high-tech military vehicles on display at AUSA 2017 including a fuel-cell powered Chevy truck and a self-driving Polaris MRZR. Armored vehicles with laser weapons, silent motorcycles that can run on jet fuel, self-driving ATVs and futuristic Chevy trucks - there were a lot of eye-popping vehicles in the nation's capital this week. Many vehicles from giant tanks through to tiny rolling surveillance robots were on display this year. Here are four of the most popular draws throughout the week. As far as draws go, it is hard to beat a vehicle responsible for keeping soldiers safe – and one that now has a laser weapon.
MARTHA'S VINEYARD, an island off the coast of Massachusetts, is a favourite summer retreat for well-to-do Americans. A few years ago, visitors noticed that petrol prices were considerably higher than in nearby Cape Cod. Even those with deep pockets hate to be ripped off. A price-fixing suit was brought against four of the island's petrol stations. The judges found no evidence of a conspiracy to raise prices, but they did note that the market was conducive to "tacit collusion" between retailers.
It has a passenger-carrying air taxi, called the SureFly, which combines the company's expertise in partially automated operation, from its drone business, and in hybrid-electric propulsion, from its truck business. One way to make it happen is with SureFly's computer flight system, similar to many of the electronic safety features in today's more advanced cars. "Since it's classified as a light-sport craft," Burns says, "it only takes 20 hours of [pilot] training. Helicopter training is 1500 hours."
Robots are already a familiar sight for surgeons in many operating rooms, but there is a good chance that artificial intelligence will eventually render its human colleagues obsolete. By 2053, artificial intelligence is likely to be smart enough and skilled enough to embark on a surgical career of its own.
The US company, Orbital Insight, is using AI to analyze satellite images and identify and quantify crude oil storage tanks. The tanks have floating roofs, so the volume of oil is visible. Orbital Insight is using shadow-detection technology and calculates how full a storage tank is by the size of the crescent-shaped shadow on the tank roof.
She is currently in the NYC Data Science Academy 12 week full time Data Science Bootcamp pr... taking place between April 11th to July 1st, 2016. This post is based on her third class project - Web Scraping, due on the 6th week of the program. Oil prices have fallen sharply since the summer of 2014. Prices bottomed in February 2016, since then they have gradually increased. While the breakeven cost is a popular topic among investors, on the consumer side gasoline prices are very cheap.
