Should you always do what other people tell you to do? Clearly not. Everyone knows that. So should future robots always obey our commands? At first glance, you might think they should, simply because they are machines and that’s what they are designed to do. But then think of all the times you would not mindlessly carry out others' instructions – and put robots into those situations.

Interesting concept. They provide a board with minimal features (+Texas Instruments Sitara processor, memory, storage and Ethernet), and plenty of space for modules and connectors to be added as needed. The system is complete with a modular case.  It can be useful for prototyping, and for projects with very small volumes.

Driven by a need for convenience, an IT specialist from Sweden just opened the country's first unstaffed store, which uses an app for access and scanning technology to make purchases.

My idea is to purchase everything on your phone from home, pay by credit card, then robots collect your items from shelves in a warehouse, putting things into insulated bins so that you can go pick it up.

The image that most people have of CERN is of its enormous accelerators and their capacity to accelerate particles to extremely high energies. But thanks to some cutting-edge studies on beam dynamics and radio-frequency technology, along with innovative construction techniques, teams at CERN have now created the first module of a brand-new accelerator, which will be just 2 meters long. The potential uses of this miniature accelerator will include deployment in hospitals for the production of medical isotopes and the treatment of cancer. It’s a real David-and-Goliath story.

Bucking modern manufacturing trends, Mercedes-Benz has been forced to trade in some of its assembly line robots for more capable humans.

The robots cannot handle the pace of change and the complexity of the key customization options available for the company’s S-Class saloon at the 101-year-old Sindelfingen plant, which produces 400, 000 vehicles a year from 1,500 tons of steel a day.

More than 30 students hailing from three different universities created a system that could put garbage men out of jobs.

The project, which is now in the prototype phase, consists of an autonomous robot that works with a drone to pick up trash and load it into a garbage truck. The system would eliminate the need for garbage men that manually load trash into the back of the truck.

The project, dubbed for ROAR for Robot based Autonomous Refuse handling, is funded by Volvo.

AO-85 & Wouxun KG-UV9D
Patrick Stoddard, WD9EWK/VA7EWK is one of the most active amateur satellite enthusiasts on the planet. He recently shared his experience using the Wouxun KG-UV9D handheld transceiver while working AO-85 with the AMSAT-BB mailing list:

Starting just after the launch of AO-85 last month, I have been using different radios to work this satellite. Some of my experiments have been with HTs, along with my Icom IC-2820H mobile radio at different power levels. During the first weekend we had AO-85 in orbit, I had used my Wouxun KG-UV9D to work the satellite, and found that it was usable to work AO-85 when it was above 20 degrees elevation...

Forbes Magazine on Quanergy — This Startup Has The Technology That Can Put Autonomous Cars On The Road In 2019
by Liane Yvkoff
Forbes | November 20, 2015

The road to autonomous cars is paved with sensors, radars, cameras, and most importantly, LiDARs.

“You cannot build autonomous cars without LiDAR, and anyone who thinks differently, please challenge me.”

This statement about laser radar systems was made by Louay Eldada, CEO of Quanergy, to a crowd at the Connected Car Expo in Los Angeles, Calif., but it seemed directed to Tesla CEO Elon Musk or anyone who may have listened to his press conference in October when he announced the availability of AutoPilot.

Forbes Magazine on Quanergy — This Startup Has The Technology That Can Put Autonomous Cars On The Road In 2019
by Liane Yvkoff
Forbes | November 20, 2015

The road to autonomous cars is paved with sensors, radars, cameras, and most importantly, LiDARs.

“You cannot build autonomous cars without LiDAR, and anyone who thinks differently, please challenge me.”

This statement about laser radar systems was made by Louay Eldada, CEO of Quanergy, to a crowd at the Connected Car Expo in Los Angeles, Calif., but it seemed directed to Tesla CEO Elon Musk or anyone who may have listened to his press conference in October when he announced the availability of AutoPilot.

During the announcement, Musk said he wasn’t a fan of using LiDAR in the automotive space. LiDAR is mashup of Laser Imaging Radar, and it refers to a hardware and software component that tracks, measures, identifies, and classifies objects, and makes a decision on what next to do. Although Musk said he uses them at SpaceX, he believes that autonomous cars can be achieved using 360-degree cameras and radars, even in rain and snow.

That’s fine for highways where you won’t encounter humans or animals, says Eldada, but the moment you have autonomous vehicles in a pedestrian environment, you will hit 1 out of 100 people.

“You need 99 followed by 10 9s before that risk is acceptable,” he explains.

Most experts agree that LiDAR is needed, and if there is an argument against using this technology, it’s likely because of its cost. The units currently used by concept autonomous vehicles run in the thousands of dollars, which is a non-starter in the world of vehicle manufacturing. Cameras, on the other hand, cost pennies at volume. That will change with the onset of Quanergy’s solid state LiDAR, which Eldada keeps under wraps in a black cloth bag about the size of a point-and-shoot camera. Its next-generation system will be the key to unlocking true self-driving capabilities for vehicles because it has no moving parts, which means it won’t break. This level of reliability is essential for autonomously driven vehicles because it’s a mission critical component, and it also increases accuracy and reduces accidents. But even it’s the missing link for autonomous drive, it’s not enough to be unbreakable—it has to be cheap.

Quanergy’s solid state LiDAR will retail to manufacturers for $250, and will cost about half that amount to manufacture. Eldada said this price point has been validated by Delphi, which participated in the $44.5 million Series A financing round. The company has partnered with Flextronics in Milpitas, Calif. to manufacture this component, which will begin in Q3 of 2016, and the laser company is in six non-exclusive partner agreements with suppliers who will bring this to market, although he shared that he is closest with Delphi.

The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based start-up is working with several manufacturers, and Eldada says with an air of certainty that consumers will see production autonomous vehicles on the road in 2019.

“Autonomous vehicles that are safe, well-tested, and delivered by reputable companies will launch in 2019 under a 2020 model year,” he said.

Lending credence to his prediction, his manufacturing forecasts expects 100,000 vehicles globally to be equipped with his LiDARs in 2019, each requiring two units. However, “more aggressive” manufacturers will begin using his LiDARs in Q4 2016. For confidentiality reasons, he could not say on which manufacturer or vehicles, but he shared that next year Quanergy’s solid-state LiDAR will be unveiled on three concept vehicles at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show: two Mercedes-Benz GLE450 vehicles shown by Quanergy and Nvidia, and a Volvo XC90 shown by Delphi.

Please vote for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to receive $75K from DSW. We're losing to a pit bull rescue in Fresno right now. I like dogs, but I feel human lives are important, too. You can vote once a day for the next couple of days and family members can vote from other devices. Please share if you can, also. Thanks so much and good luck to all the charities involved!

Looks like Fandango ratings aren't correlated with IMDB, Metacritic, or Rotten Tomatoes. This is a beautiful table created by a Houston Startup called DiBS. If you're interested in a super easy-to-use/innovative data visualization tool check out www.dibsvis.com/biowheel.
