Speeding up traffic by 35 percent using driverless cars working together

A fleet of driverless cars working together to keep traffic moving smoothly can improve overall traffic flow by at least 35 percent, researchers have shown. For autonomous cars to be safely used on real roads, we need to know how they will interact with each other Amanda Prorok The researchers, from the University of Cambridge,

How augmented reality affects people’s behavior

Stanford scholar Jeremy Bailenson and other researchers found that people’s interactions with a virtual person in augmented reality, or AR, influenced how they behaved and acted in the physical world. As major technology firms race to roll out augmented reality products, Stanford researchers are learning how it affects people’s behavior – in both the physical

Better cognitive performance training through artificial intelligence

In a recent pilot study, a group of NUS researchers has shown that a powerful artificial intelligence (AI) platform known as CURATE.AI could potentially be used to customise training regimens for individuals to personalise learning and improve cognitive performance. Using performance data from a given person, CURATE.AI creates an individualised profile that enables cognitive training

Funding: To create an autonomous robotic trauma care system

The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and Carnegie Mellon University each have been awarded four-year contracts totaling more than $7.2 million from the U.S. Department of Defense to create an autonomous trauma care system that fits in a backpack and can treat and stabilize soldiers injured in remote locations. The goal of “TRAuma Care In a Rucksack: TRACIR” is

Capturing a wealth of data in an instant with a new hyperspectral camera

Rice’s NASA-funded TuLIPSS project sets high standard for portable spectrometers Standard snapshots from space don’t quite show Earth in all its glory. There’s so much more to see. To reveal details impossible to observe with the naked eye, Rice University engineers are building a portable spectrometer that can be mounted on a small satellite, flown on an

Producing carbon-neutral alternatives to cement

  Producing cement takes a big toll on our climate: Around eight per cent of annual global carbon dioxide emissions can be attributed to this process. However, the demand for cement continues to rise. A team of geoscientists from Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) has found a way to produce more environmentally friendly and sustainable

A new light beam device could lead to faster internet speeds for more people

A research team has developed a light beam device that could lead to faster internet, clearer images of space and more detailed medical imaging. University of Queensland researcher and optical engineer Dr Joel Carpenter worked with Nokia Bell Labs to build the device to tackle the challenge of splitting light into the shapes it is made up of, known as modes.

Using DNA signatures to identify genetically engineered organisms that have been released into the environment

In partnership with scientists from Raytheon and other universities, Eric Young is helping develop a method for using DNA signatures to identify genetically engineered organisms that have been accidentally or intentionally released beyond the lab and into the environment. If a genetically or synthetically engineered organism is released into the environment, how will we know?
