Second Generation Robot Shuttles

Second Generation Robot Shuttles

The IDTechEx report, "Robot Shuttles and Autonomous Buses 2020-2040," predicted second-generation robot shuttles, and here they come - vectored traction and steering, smart windows, robotic fast charging, and solar bodywork, so 10-40% less charging is needed.

New Soft, Stretchable Biocompatible Artificial Skin

New Soft, Stretchable Biocompatible Artificial Skin

In the field of robotics, metals offer advantages like strength, durability, and electrical conductivity. But, they are heavy and rigid—properties that are undesirable in soft and flexible systems for wearable computing and human-machine interfaces.

EHang to Build Eco-Sustainable Vertiport in Italy

EHang to Build Eco-Sustainable Vertiport in Italy

EHang Holdings Limited and Giancarlo Zema Design Group have designed and will build an eco-sustainable vertiport in Italy. The vertiport will use green design and construction materials, and can generate energy to recharge the EH216 passenger-grade AAVs. Vertiports will play a significant role in the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) market and the new era of flight. When integrated into the existing transportation infrastructure, vertiports can serve as aerial hubs for tourists.

Reality Checking the IOT story

Reality Checking the IOT story

Market research companies of all sizes generally pitch the 2020 market for Internet of Things at $200-£500 billion. They cite the leading players as companies with around that in total sales! These companies have mostly been large for quite a while so have their traditional businesses collapsed and been replaced by this great new thing? There is no evidence for that. So what do the pundits say these massive sums consist of?

Supercapacitors in new electronics and small electrics

Supercapacitors in new electronics and small electrics

The first supercapacitors to be commercialised were small ones for electronics. They were made in conventional capacitor formats such as axial and radial lead cylindrical and then coin cell.

Robots Use Eye Contact to Draw Out Reluctant Participants in Groups

Robots Use Eye Contact to Draw Out Reluctant Participants in Groups

Eye contact is a key to establishing a connection, and teachers use it often to encourage participation. But can a robot do this too? Can it draw a response simply by making "eye" contact, even with people who are less inclined to speak up. A recent study suggests that it can.

Market for eVTOL Air Taxis to Grow to $14.7 Billion by 2041

Market for eVTOL Air Taxis to Grow to $14.7 Billion by 2041

Air taxis and flying cars are easy to hype but IDTechEx's new report on the subject is not that hype. This independent research into electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft for passenger transport reflects the reality of the eVTOL market at this early stage of its development.
