1-Ton cargo delivery drone unveiled

1-Ton cargo delivery drone unveiled

Silent Arrow is the world's first production-ready, 1-ton, autonomous cargo aircraft, which delivers up to 1,631 pounds (740 kg) of supplies at less than half the cost of JPADS with more than double the glide ratio, dramatically improved landing accuracy, zero vertical impact force and with far greater stealth.

Optical lace gives robots heightened sensory ability

Optical lace gives robots heightened sensory ability

A new stretchable optical lace could give soft robots an even softer touch. The synthetic material creates a linked sensory network similar to a biological nervous system, which would enable robots to sense how they interact with their environment and adjust their actions accordingly.

Empathy for robots can have life-changing consequences for troops

Empathy for robots can have life-changing consequences for troops

It is increasingly common to use robots in war zones to examine and disarm hazards or recover objects with the understanding that the loss of a robot is a far more acceptable outcome than the death of a solider.
