China at forefront of Car Tech Change

An explosion of ingenuity is radiating from China in how to develop, engineer and market cars. Long derided as a fast follower, China has suddenly blossomed as the innovation nation.

Via TechinBiz
Richard Platt's insight:

A curious eight-story car tower just opened in southern China.

Customers interested in a Ford, be it a Mustang, Mondeo, Explorer or any of the 130 vehicles on tap, roll up to the unmanned structure. They are scanned by facial recognition software and then check out with the vehicle of their choice for a three-day test drive.  More than 1,200 people have tried it since last month; some have even ended up buying.   "It's a neat, novel, fun way to engage consumers, but it's had a much wider reach," says Dean Stoneley, Ford's Asia Pacific vice president for marketing. "There's a lot of learnings from it."  The car "vending machine" in Guangzhou — a joint project between Ford and the country's e-commerce colossus Alibaba Group, the Amazon of China — is but one brainchild in an explosion of ingenuity radiating from China these days on how to develop, engineer and market cars. Long derided as a fast follower, China has suddenly blossomed as the innovation nation.

Technology has changed our lives in countless ways — there are more smartphones and other mobile devices in use in the United States and its territories than the entire population of the country, and we are just on the cusp of seeing driverless cars on our roads and highways.

Hybrid Drones carry heavier payloads for greater distances

Hybrid Drones carry heavier payloads for greater distances | Internet of Things - Technology focus | Scoop.it
MIT spinoff Top Flight Technologies developed a hybrid gas-electric engine that extends flight times, range, and allows heavier payloads for commercial unpiloted aerial vehicles, enabling drone delivery, human flight, and solutions for aerospace, transportation, agriculture, and many other industries.

Via TechinBiz
Richard Platt's insight:

In the mid-1990s, Phan helped build the Draper Small Autonomous Aerial Vehicle, the world’s first fully autonomous helicopter. While working on Wall Street in the early 2000s, he became an early pioneer of the high-frequency trading system, which consists of powerful computers that rapidly complete tons of trading transactions.   As co-founder, CEO, and chief technology officer of Top Flight Technologies, Phan is now one of the first entrepreneurs to commercialize hybrid gas-to-electric drones. The drones offer an order-of-magnitude increase in range, payload size, and power over battery-powered counterparts.   Coming to market this fall, the hybrid drones could help make drone package-delivery a reality, and enhance capabilities for crop imaging, military surveillance, emergency response, and remote infrastructure inspection, among other applications. As the startup continues to develop hybrid drone power sources, the technology could also pave the way for human flight.  “The key is having an abundance of power and total energy. That’s what petrol and  gasoline gives you,” Phan says. “Using a high-energy-density energy source like gasoline, and converting it to electric power, and doing it efficiently, gives you the equivalent of a ‘super battery.’”

US Government develops mind-controlled prosthetic arm with the sense of Touch

US Government develops mind-controlled prosthetic arm with the sense of Touch | Internet of Things - Technology focus | Scoop.it
The US defence force announced last week that it has given a paralysed man the ability to 'feel' physical sensations through a prosthetic robotic hand that’s been directly connected to his brain. Having been paralysed for more than a decade due to...

Via TechinBiz
Richard Platt's insight:

The DEKA Arm System - affectionately dubbed 'Luke' (as in Luke Skywalker) - was first showcased back in February, when a US army vet used the battery-powered prosthetic to scale a rock-climbing wall, using nothing but his brain power.   Now the team behind the technology has demonstrated how the battery-powered device can impart the feeling of touch on top of grip, movement, and object manipulation. They did this by placing electrode arrays onto a paralysed volunteer’s sensory cortex - a region in the brain that’s responsible for identifying and processing the sense of touch, which is defined by the amount of pressure that something asserts - which connected up to the prosthetic device.   Arrays were also placed on the volunteer’s motor cortex, which is responsible for facilitating body movements. "The wires from the motor cortex allow the wearer to control the motion of the robot arm, and pressure sensors in the arm that connect back into the sensory cortex give the wearer the sensation that they are touching something," Mike Murphy explains at Quartz.  Loaded with highly sensitive torque sensors, the device could detect changes in pressure as they are applied to the fingers, and this was converted into electrical signals that were fed into the volunteer’s brain.   When testing the arm in the lab, the researchers gently touched each of the fingers while the volunteer was blindfolded, and he reported with almost 100 percent accuracy which one was being touch, saying that it felt just like his own hand was being touched.  "At one point, instead of pressing one finger, the team decided to press two without telling him," said Sanchez. "He responded in jest asking whether somebody was trying to play a trick on him. That is when we knew that the feelings he was perceiving through the robotic hand were near-natural." The experiment was described at the Wait, What? A Future Technology Forum, hosted by DARPA in the US last week. The team is remaining fairly tight-lipped on the finer details of the technology right now, as they're working on getting everything peer reviewed and accepted for publication in a scientific journal.

The four EksoVests were paid for by the United Auto Workers union, which represents hourly workers at Ford, and the automaker plans tests for the exoskeleton in other regions including Europe and South America.

This Telepresence Robot can be Navigated via Mind Control | Internet of Things - Technology focus | Scoop.it
Scientists from Italy and Switzerland have designed a telepresence robot that can be controlled with only brain signals - and it may have a significant impact on the daily lives of people with limited motor function.

Via TechinBiz
Richard Platt's insight:

Scientists have created a telepresence robot designed to be used by people with disabilities that severely affect their motor functions. It can be controlled in a way that seems straight out of a sci-fi movie: the bot can maneuver around with only the use of the user's brain signals.   Designed by researchers from Italy and Switzerland, the robot is controlled with a headset fitted with electroencephalogram (EEG) sensors, removing issues that can arise for people who have limited mobility with their arms, hands, and/or fingers. Software translates mental commands that the user issues—either backward, forward, left, or right—into actions that the robot can then perform.   The robot itself is a brain-user interface, more or less a laptop on wheels, with a camera that lets the user "see" the telepresence bot's surroundings, and a screen that shows the face of the user for more personable interactions. The robot is also equipped with infrared sensors that can alert it to obstacles that might obstruct its path. Although the user is in control of the bot, its accompanying software can also override directives if it senses the presence of an object in the way of its trajectory.
