Agricultural Robots and Drones: Company and Product Readiness Map

Agricultural Robots and Drones: Company and Product Readiness Map

It is often imagined that agriculture is alien to new technologies. This is far from reality. In fact, agriculture has always been a pioneer in the adoption of new technologies, embracing motor/power, modified seed, and agrochemical technologies over many decades to boost productivity.

Join the IDTechEx Webinar "Electric Cars: In the Wake of COVID-19"

Tuesday 11 August - The electric car market is facing fresh, unforeseen challenges in 2020, and in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, electric vehicles with a higher upfront price are a hard sell. How is the industry, and how are governments, responding? Are electric cars de-railed from their pre-coronavirus trajectory?

Airbus: Successful Autonomous Taxi, Take-off and Landing

Airbus: Successful Autonomous Taxi, Take-off and Landing

Following an extensive two-year flight test programme, Airbus has successfully concluded its Autonomous Taxi, Take-Off and Landing (ATTOL) project. In completing this project, Airbus has achieved autonomous taxiing, take-off and landing of a commercial aircraft through fully automatic vision-based flight tests using on-board image recognition technology - a world-first in aviation.

Soft Robot Actuators Heal Themselves

Soft Robot Actuators Heal Themselves

Repeated activity wears on soft robotic actuators, but these machines' moving parts need to be reliable and easily fixed. Now a team of researchers has a biosynthetic polymer, patterned after squid ring teeth, that is self-healing and biodegradable, creating a material not only good for actuators, but also for hazmat suits and other applications where tiny holes could cause a danger.

Which Way to the Fridge? Common Sense Helps Robots Navigate

A robot travelling from point A to point B is more efficient if it understands that point A is the living room couch and point B is a refrigerator, even if it's in an unfamiliar place. That's the common-sense idea behind a "semantic" navigation system.

Supercapacitor Markets, Technology Roadmap, Opportunities 2021-2041

Passive components like resistors, inductors, and capacitors influence the flow of power but do not require an external power source to function. Capacitors are electrostatic components with capacity measured in farads. One farad stores one coulomb of electrical charge when applying one volt.

ML Approaches Will Be Ubiquitous For Chemicals & Materials R&D

In the future, all materials scientists and chemists will have access to machine learning tools to enhance their R&D. Seamlessly integrating these underlying operations will not happen quickly, but overlooking the developments in materials informatics will lead to a loss of any competitive advantage.
