Robots learn faster with AI boost from Eureka

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, drones, robotics/AI, security

Intelligent robots are reshaping our universe. In New Jersey’s Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, AI-assisted robots are bringing a new level of security to doctors and patients by scanning every inch of the premises for harmful bacteria and viruses and disinfecting them with precise doses of germicidal ultraviolet light.

In agriculture, robotic arms driven by drones scan varying types of fruits and vegetables and determine when they are perfectly ripe for picking.

The Airspace Intelligence System AI Flyways takes over the challenging and often stressful tasks of flight dispatchers who must make last-minute flight pattern changes due to sudden extreme weather, depleted fuel supplies, mechanical problems or other emergencies. It optimizes solutions, is safer, saves time and is cost-efficient.

Watch NASA test its 8-rotor Titan moon drone Dragonfly

Posted by in categories: drones, space

NASA engineers tested a half-scale version of the Dragonfly rotorcraft that will eventually explore the surface of Saturn’s largest moon, Titan.

NASA’s Ingenuity Mars helicopter is a massive success story, far exceeding its original mission goals.

Now, NASA is taking lessons from the first rotorcraft to fly on another planet and applying it to a larger machine exploring Saturn’s largest moon, Titan.

New tech can guide drones without relying on cameras, GPS

Posted by in categories: drones, robotics/AI

A battery-less RFID tag could do the job just as well as a GPS landing module. The researchers have further refined how the tag works.

A collaboration between researchers at The University of Tokyo and telecommunications company NTT in Japan has led to the development of a radio-frequency identification (RFID)-based guidance system for autonomous drones, a press release said.

The use of drones for civil applications has been on the rise and is expected to increase further as countries become more liberal with airspace to be used by autonomous flying vehicles. Conventionally, drones have relied on imaging to determine their location, but as piloting control moves toward the machine from humans,… More.

ChatGPT + Real Drone

Posted by in categories: drones, robotics/AI

In this video accompaniment to our paper “ChatGPT for Robotics: Design Principles and Model Abilities”, we demonstrate how ChatGPT can help a user control a real drone with only language instructions.

ChatGPT provided an extremely intuitive interface between the user and the robot, writing robot code based on ambiguous and ill-defined instructions, and asking clarification questions when necessary. The model was also able to write complex code structures for drone navigation (circular and lawnmower inspection) based solely on the prompt’s base APIs.

New Ukrainian nanotech ‘cloak’ can hide people from drones

Posted by in categories: drones, nanotechnology

An unnamed Ukrainian scientist has allegedly developed a new material that can mask heat signatures of troops and gear from Russian drones.

“Necessity is the mother of all inventions,” as the saying goes, and this saying has never been more accurate than when applied to wargear. The latest exemplar of this is a new “invisibility cloak” developed by a Ukrainian material scientist to help protect Ukrainians from Russian drones. As reported by inews.

Why the AH-64 Apache is the World’s Best Attack Helicopter

Posted by in categories: drones, military

Nearly three decades later, the Apache’s status as the world’s premier attack helicopter remains largely unchallenged.

Here’s What You Need to Remember: The latest AH-64E Guardian model boasts uprated engines, remote drone-control capabilities, and a sensors designed to highlight muzzle flashes on the battlefield below. The Army has also experimentally deployed Apaches on U.S. Navy ships and had them practice anti-ship missions, and even tested a laser-armed Apache.

Early in the morning of January 17, 1991, eight sleek helicopters bristling with missiles swooped low over the sands of the An Nafud desert in as they soared towards the border separating Saudi Arabia from Iraq.

Callboats leads the way with autonomous water taxi innovation

Posted by in categories: business, drones, robotics/AI

Helsinki’s Callboats pioneers autonomous water taxis, aiming to cut costs, improve island access, and reduce captain shortages.

Autonomous electric water transport could be the answer to improving accessibility, achieving carbon neutrality, and addressing a shortage of skippers in the Helsinki archipelago. However, current legislation is a barrier to the operation of remotely controlled boats, according to a Helsinki Times.

Over the years, Forum Virium Helsinki, the innovation agency of the City of Helsinki, has accelerated various business ideas through its rapid innovation experiments. Successful innovations in smart mobility include autonomous transportation solutions like robot buses, drones delivering first aid supplies, and sweeping robot machines.
