Ford introduced Android Digit, which solves the problem of delivering an order from an unmanned vehicle directly to the recipient’s door. The delivery robot has two legs that bend backward like a heron and arms to grip the parcel, capable of withstanding a load of more than 18 kg. The limbs are covered with corrugated rubber for increased traction. He can also raise his arms to keep from falling.. The figure climbs the stairs and can walk on concrete easily, grass, gravel and wood. At the top of the torso is a camera and a laser radar sensor that resembles a puck. In general, android is similar to combat drones from the cinematic universe «star Wars». Digit was created by Agility Robotics startup. Developers in favor of lightweight design. Most of the sensors and computing equipment for routing to the door are housed in the Ford vehicle, which reduces the…

BMW Motorrad demonstrates an unmanned motorcycle model it has worked on for over two years. The prototype without a driver can independently start, accelerate, brake and even lean around corners. However, for now, one can not hope for the emergence of an unmanned novelty on the streets. Company representatives for the implementation of new security features.. The enhanced R1200GS helps researchers learn more about driving dynamics and better classify driver behavior to determine the level of danger in a particular situation. In case of a threat, the system will warn the person or intervene on its own. This will help inattentive riders avoid an accident.. From BMW, Volvo is not only testing autonomous systems, but also making the ride as comfortable as possible. Therefore, in its conceptual model of an unmanned electric vehicle 360c decided to add a modular interior with a berth. text: Ivan Malichenko, photo: Sherman Young / Unsplash,…

Refraction unveils a small, unmanned delivery vehicle designed to move primarily along cycle paths. REV-1 developed by a professor at the University of Michigan Matthew Johnson-Roberson is a three-wheeled vehicle that intermediate between cooler-sized sidewalk robots and road vans. With a body width of about 80 cm, it is quite nimble, lightweight and low-power, therefore equates to an e-bike and fits neatly on a bike path or road. At a cost of about $ 5,000, REV-1 is much cheaper than its larger counterparts. Refraction also teaches the device navigate in rainy and snowy weather, which is a problem for competitors. Despite the advantages of the development, the appearance of the robot can cause excitement on the part of cyclists, and poses a potential threat to the safety of their movement. However, engineers say these fears are unfounded and hope they provide a chance to bring their product to market and realize its potential..…
