Toyota turns to ‘guardian angel’ self-driving cars

Posted on 02/25 12:39 in Shows | 0

But as-needed assistive driving has more promise for the near future because of the challenge of switching quickly from fully autonomous to driver-back-in-control.There Toyota announced the guardian-angel project, reiterated its long-term commitment to fully autonomous driving, and said Toyota will use three R&D facilities in the US, including a new facility in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Phase change memory can operate thousands of times faster than current RAM

Posted on 08/15 19:58 in Shows | 0

Conventional DRAM operates at nanosecond timescales, which means phase change memory could theoretically be thousands of times faster than conventional RAM.In theory, phase change memory could eventually present a solution to the so-called memory wall, or memory gap.

Hacked-together Lego Mindstorms bot kit brings science to a classroom near you

Posted on 03/22 18:48 in Shows | 0

Stanford researchers have hacked the Lego Mindstorms platform as a springboard to create a liquid-handling robotics kit, using inexpensive, off-the-shelf parts.” To fill that vacuum, the team created their own desktop liquid-handling robots that approach the performance of the far more costly automation systems found at universities and biotech labs, Riedel-Kruse said.
