Sound-Off: How Do You Secure the ‘Connected’ Car?

What are the best ways to detect and prevent cyberattacks on today's 'connected' cars? Share your thoughts and "Sound Off!"

3D-Printed Soft Robot ‘Walks’ on Any Terrain

Traditional robots often feature isolated mechanical joints. These discrete components limit a rover’s ability to traverse sand, stone, and other challenging environments.
A team at the University of California San Diego has demonstrated a more flexible option: a soft robot that lifts its legs over obstacles and operates on a variety of terrains. The 3D-printed quadrupedal technology may someday support search-and-rescue missions requiring intelligent navigation capabilities.

Sound-Off: How are Collaborative Robots Being Used Today?

Are you seeing collaborative robots being integrated into today's production and manufacturing environments? Tech Briefs invites you to "Sound Off" on the role of "cobots."

Coming Soon - Technical Webinar Series from the Editors of SAE: Advances in Unmanned System Propulsion

In Conjunction with SAEThe development of new propulsion technologies has been the focus of R&D looking to provide the functionality needed for unmanned aircraft systems, including vertical takeoff and landing, long endurance, stealthy operations, and stability in hostile environments. Their development also incorporates advances in scalability, re-configurability, and extensions that host functions to legitimate business opportunities such as goods delivery, agriculture, firefighting, news gathering, and military operations.

Coming Soon - Technical Webinar Series from the Editors of SAE: Connected Vehicles & Jobsites

In Conjunction with SAEFleet owners have been deploying telematic solutions for some time, but connectivity is still just beginning to move from early adopters to mass market. Connectivity is providing more owners and operators a broad range of benefits, prompting a surge of developments by OEMs and suppliers. Chief among those benefits are safer, more efficient, and productive vehicles and worksites, both on- and off-highway. Yet technical challenges remain with development and testing of V2X communication, cybersecurity, and how to best utilize Big Data.

What's New on Tech Briefs: Brickmaking on Mars a 'Smashing' Success

With support from Congress and the President, NASA aims to send a manned mission to Mars by 2040. Establishing a human presence on the Red Planet, however, will require permanent shelters.And lugging a pile of bricks on the nine-month, 35-million-mile trip is out of the question.

Human-Robot Interaction: When Robotics Meets Philosophy

To support human-robot interaction, designers are taking a page from philosophy and studying how we work together with one another.

Coming Soon - What to Do After Finding a Positive BI in Your Routine EO Sterilization Cycle

Learn about the investigation, impact and outcome when receiving a positive Biological Indicator in your routine EO Sterilization cycle.

Coming Soon - The Evolution of ADAS: Testing Systems That Include Cameras, Radar, and Sensor Fusion

In Conjunction with SAEOn their own, test requirements for camera and radar technology are rapidly changing as they become more safety critical. Because these systems are increasingly reliant on sensor fusion techniques, the test requirements are growing even more complex at a fast rate. A test system built on a scalable and flexible architecture is the only way to make sure you can adapt as quickly as ADAS technologies and autonomous vehicle systems are evolving.
