NASA Is Partnering with NextNav, a Pioneer in 3D Geolocation Services, to Navigate Delivery Drones And Passenger-Carrying Air Taxis

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) believes that by 2022 there will be over 700,000 drones delivering packages, monitoring traffic, and aiding in search-and-rescue operations. NextNav, the pioneer in 3D geolocation services, today announced that NASA has accepted its Metropolitan Beacon System (MBS) service. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) plans to use NextNav’s MBS network as part of its CERTAIN (City Environment for Range Testing of Autonomous Integrated Naviga

Drones: From Search-and-Rescue to Emergency Delivery They Are Here to Stay

Drones. A controversial topic for some. A futuristic scenery for others. The fact is, that the history of drones -- or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) -- goes back to 1839 when unsuccessful balloons filled with explosives sent by Austrian soldiers were supposed to explode and bomb the city of Venice. However, some of them flew back and bombed the Austrians' own lines, instead, discouraging their future use. Since then, drones have evolved to become a technology that can be used for the benefit

Blockchain Regulations in China Raise Censorship Concerns Among Industry Leaders

China's central government has recently announced that users who want to register for blockchain services must do it using their official names and IDs. The measure aims to discourage blockchain anonymity. The Cyberspace Administration of China, which is the country's Internet regulator, has recently released a draft of a policy requiring blockchain users to remove illegal information quickly before it spreads among users. Blockchain services will also be required to retain backups of user data

Autonomous Vehicles for Postal Deliveries Take Over Europe's Streets

Postal services are going through an evolutionary transformation toward incorporating more automation into their delivery service. In the 60s, The Beatles gave the postman a central role singing Please, Mr.Postman. Fifty years later, the human Mr.Postman is being replaced by a robot which is part of an automated sorting and delivery system for letters and parcels. The human postman, in this era of automated delivery, takes other supervising roles instead. In Norway, Posten-Norge, the Scandinav

Tesla Releases Autopilot Drive on Navigation in North America

The evening of October 27 is going to be known in the automotive history books as the day Tesla enabled Navigate on Autopilot on its electric vehicles. Elon Musk announced early this morning that Tesla is releasing Autopilot Drive on Navigation in North America tonight. Navigate on Autopilot makes Tesla vehicles smarter, safer, and more intuitive. The update also introduces a refined and simplified user interface and a wide variety of new features for Model S, Model X, and Model 3 as well as o

Researchers Introduce Graphene Printing Technique that Silk-Screens Flexible Electronics

As technologies advance quickly with promises of an explosion of new products ranging from electronic and microelectronic components to solar panels, there is also an expectation of rapid development in the nanotechnology research field. Materials Graphene May be The Key to Meeting All Future Bandwidth Demands Innovative discoveries are responding to industry needs. They are bringing closer to reality things such as high-efficiency solar cells molded to the surface of a vehicle, ultra-small ph

Miniaturizing Cold-Atom Technology for Deployable Vacuum Metrology

The extremely sophisticated process of semiconductor manufacturing requires exact precision. The geometry or width of the chips circuits demands semiconductor manufacturers to assure that each process must be performed with extreme detail. Maintaining a consistent vacuum is vital in the process of semiconductor manufacturing. Even a tiny minor fluctuation can have a negative effect on the production cycle. Obtaining an effective sealing is a paramount element in achieving consistent vacuum. Co

The Sixth Mass Extinction May Exterminate Mammals in The Next 50 Years

Scientific evidence shows that humans are causing the sixth mass extinction on Earth. Half of the planet's wildlife has died off in the past 40 years at an incredibly fast and alarming rate. According to a team of researchers from Aarhus University in Denmark and the University of Gothenburg in Sweden, species are dying out at such a fast pace that evolution, which is nature's built-in mechanism of survival, is unable to keep up. Matt Davis, Søren Faurby, and Jens-Christian Svenning, authors o

First Single-Molecule Magnet Ever Can Revolutionize Hard Disk Storage Capacity

In today's digital world, one of the most pressing technology needs is to find more and better efficient ways to store and process digital information. A recent breakthrough discovery of the world's first high-temperature single-molecule magnet (SMM) opens doors to future exciting developments in massive storage capacity increase in hard disks without increasing their physical size. Before the publication of the study Magnetic Hysteresis up to 80 Kelvin in a Dysprosium Metallocene Single-Molec

Probiotics and Antibiotics Join Forces to Eradicate Drug-Resistant Bacteria

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) happens when micro-organisms such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites undergo a metamorphosis when they are exposed to antimicrobial drugs such as antibiotics, antifungals, antivirals, antimalarials, and anthelmintics. When micro-organisms have developed antimicrobial resistance they are referred to as superbugs. Consequently, the medicines that once were effective in the treatment of infections have become ineffective. This causes the infections to persis

The One Love Machine Band Rocks the Stage in Rome

The One Love Machine Band came to life by chance. Berlin-based artist Kolja Kugler began creating and shaping the one-of-their-kind lively metallic band players through his scupture work. The result he obtained ended up being not only a creative and artistic work but also a work of engineering design. Or, even a window into the future, you may think. A future where robotics and Artificial Intelligence are expected to be an integral part of the entertainment industry in the cities of the future.

New Solar Battery Charger for Electric Vehicles that Follows the Sun Shines at Maker Faire Rome 2018

According to the High-level findings of the Electric Vehicle Outlook 2018 report, sales of electric vehicles (EVs) are expected to be increasing from a record 1.1 million worldwide in 2017, to 11 million in 2025 and then surging to 30 million in 2030 as they become cheaper to make than internal combustion engine (ICE) cars. China is expected to lead this transition, with sales accounting for almost 50 percent of the global EV market in 2025. The global renewable energy market is expected to re
