Probot Ltd - Mobility

Probot Ltd - Mobility | Robotics Frontiers | Scoop.it

The ProbotModules™ were represented first time in ICRA 2013 in Karlsruhe, Germany. The history of the ProbotModules™ started in 2005 when one of the founders of Probot Antti Tikanmki decided to re-think the mobile robotics by the basis he had learned during the over 15 years of experience on the area of outdoor robotics research and modular software architecture. The resulted innovation is now available for the developers and endusers in a form of ProbotModules™ . Beside offering the building blocks for the DYI end-users, Probot offers you also the turnkey -option for easily achieving your real-world applications! Fast, reliable and affordable modular mobile robotics!

Google's Autonomous Cars Are Smarter Than Ever at 700,000 Miles - IEEE Spectrum

Google's Autonomous Cars Are Smarter Than Ever at 700,000 Miles - IEEE Spectrum | Robotics Frontiers | Scoop.it
A focus on urban driving brings Google's self-driving cars even closer to full autonomy
Tony Sacksteder's insight:

Google's cars are still not ready for end users like you and I; they may be able to deal with 90 or 95 percent of situations autonomously, but that last 5 to 10 percent to make it to 100 percent autonomy (which is what's required) is probably as hard as all of the research, programming, experience, and machine learning that's gone into the cars up to this point.
