Technology Innovations

Within the next decade, the world’s population will cross the 8 billion mark. Humankind’s complex food chain is already overworked, not forgetting climate change issues and limited water resources. Therefore, the earth is under extreme pressure to put up with the needs of every living creature. To sustain an overpopulated planet’s demands, we need new devices, scientific discoveries, and devices. Here are five technology innovations that will change our lives forever. 1.Autonomous Vehicles The phrase ‘autonomous vehicles’ refers to a … Read more

Robotic ecology: Tracking small dynamic animals with an autonomous aerial vehicle

Trend Technology

Understanding animal movements that underpin ecosystem processes is fundamental to ecology. Recent advances in animal tags have increased the ability to remotely locate larger species; however, this technology is not suitable for up to 70% of the world’s bird and mammal species. The most widespread technique for tracking small animals is to manually locate low-power radio transmitters from the ground with handheld equipment. Despite this labor-intensive technique being used for decades, efforts to reduce or automate this process have had … Read more

Consumers are rightfully excited about the eventual introduction of autonomous vehicles, as they promise to deliver vast improvements in road safety, travel efficiency, and riding enjoyment.  But current use of self-driving technologies in industrial applications, such as farms and mines, suggests that true, fully autonomous vehicles might arrive first in places other than our roads.  While many of us might not realise it, the benefits of such use on farms would be equally – if not more – compelling for … Read more

Autonomous Flatcars Could Help Drones Deliver Goods

Trend Technology

A research company is seeking funding to build a prototype autonomous, battery-powered flatcar that would serve as a platform for package-delivery drones. Cambridge Research & Development in New Hampshire has applied for a patent for the concept. The vehicle, Cambridge founder and CEO Ken Steinberg says, could carry and deliver freight or serve as a moving platform for autonomous package-delivery drones. The idea is to take advantage of railroad capacity that goes unused on commute… Technology
