Nissan Motor Co. opened a research center in California’s Silicon Valley that the Japanese carmaker plans to make its hub for research on self-driving vehicles and Internet-connected auto technology.
Silicon Valley is the place to be for autonomous vehicle research. Although Germany and France do interesting applied research, and Michigan's large connected car trial is very relevant too.

"self driven cars won't be feasible until 2020"great information on self driving cars
interesting topic, slightly boring article but contents are inspiring
An Australian teenager's simple idea that would allow a complete quadriplegic to control a wheelchair by voice has earned her international recognition and a top science award for school students, handed out by Commonwealth science agency CSIRO.
16 yr old Yaya Lu documents her 8 years of robotics competitions and her learning journery at her website yayalu.net . She is a complete champion.
In an age of aerial drones and driver-less cars, Rolls-Royce Holdings Plc is designing unmanned cargo ships.
The robotic suit, created by 3D Systems and EksoBionics, allows Amanda Boxtel, who was paralyzed in a skiing accident, to walk for the first time since 1992. Read this article by Daniel Terdiman on CNET News.
It came from the sky.
Yes indeed, the genie is out of the bottle.
More great drone news today! Hopefully, this project will enter the Drone Social Innovation Award!
International competition announced to support plan to launch unmanned aerial vehicles
Dyson, the engineering company best known for its bagless vacuum cleaners, is to invest £5m in a robotics lab at Imperial College, London.
The research will focus on vision systems that can help robots understand and adapt to the world around them, the company said.
Dyson has been working on robotics with Imperial's Prof Andrew Davison since 2005, and he will run the new lab.
The research will cover domestic robots as well as robotic vacuum cleaners.
Nine years ago, Dennis Aabo Sørensen, of Denmark, lost his left arm in a fireworks accident and had to have it amputated. Now, for the first time, a bionic hand has restored his ability to feel again.
A drone with kestrel-like legs can swoop and perch on a telephone wire or fence where it will then rest, spying on passers-by. You have been warned
What kind of robots does an animator / jazz musician / roboticist make? Playful, reactive, curious ones. Guy Hoffman shows demo film of his family of unusual robots -- including two musical bots that like to jam with humans.
Finally a robot for the home that is not a vacuum cleaner
Very aggressively priced too at only $995 -- at least for the first 1000 units!
So useful. It may be less cumbersome if it could fly though.
She's basically my nerd superhero right now.
Marita Cheng's new startup 2Mar is doing robot arms. Her first startup was Robogals doing robot education for girls. Go Aussies!
Since 1967, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has been a showcase for our high-tech future. Language translators, virtual reality systems, and even robots have graced the many different convention halls that have hosted CES over the years.
Imagine floating on the empty blue Pacific Ocean, nothing but water in every direction, sunrise to sunset. Yet under the surface swim thousands of great white sharks. That's no...
Buckminster Fuller would be proud of NASA's new experimental robot design. It's based on the structural principle that Fuller called tensegrity (tensional integrity) where the structure comes from compressed rods and flexible connections.
Using a 3D printer at the local library, a Kansas high schooler built a working prosthetic hand for his nine-year-old family friend who was born without fingers on his right hand.
This is what we call "future music."
We are on the cusp of a personal robotics age – can you hack it? Take to the air with my Node.js drone control setup and Leap Motion interaction, and hear more about how small flying machines will ...
Who doesn't want to hang out in the museum after hours? London's Tate Britain art gallery houses a treasure trove of great works from Hogarth, Gainsborough..
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, funds a lot of important computer science research, much of which has remained hidden away from public view - until now.
Creating a new transport infrastructure for Africa - going where no roads go.
Robots are now learning from each other even tasks that haven't been programmed--a sign that they could soon take on bigger jobs. A demo conducted...
I agree: robots (or smart talking objects) need a cloud-brain!
A new, naturally stable flying robot moves through the air like a jellyfish swims through the water. The robot could be useful for tasks such as air quality monitoring and surveillance.
Afraid of breaking your PR2? Don't worry, support is available
There are very few robotics companies with good IP and lots of potential stacks left it seems. Now the consumer robotics onslaught commences.
The tech industry is riddled with vaporware -- those products that get a big public announcement, but never actually find their way to stores. And it's always been this way.
And most of them seem to be robots, like GENUS and Scoutabout.
