Harley-Davidson LiveWire rider completes Mexico to Canada electric border run

Posted by in categories: sustainability, transportation

Sure, the Harley-Davidson LiveWire electric motorcycle may be designed for urban riders, but that doesn’t mean it can’t handle long distance trips. At least that’s what Diego Cardenas just proved after completing a ride from the US-Mexico border to the US-Canada border to celebrate his 50th birthday!

Rimac C_Three Rendering Is a Four-Seat 1,900 HP Electric Hypercar

Posted by in categories: sustainability, transportation


Rimac Automobili went very quickly from a company that built subassemblies for others to one that produces some of the quickest, most desirable electric hypercars on the market. The man behind it all is Mate Rimac, a 32-year-old Croatian with a passion for electricity and innovation and, we presume, never-take-no-for-an-answer kind of attitude.

16 photos.

The dry ice-cooled electric motorcycle heading for the land speed world record

Posted by in categories: sustainability, transportation

Originally intended to make the record attempt this month, plans for the (hopefully) record-breaking run have now been delayed until next year. There seems to be a lot of electric vehicle world record attempts being delayed lately.

But that’s no matter to the Voxan team, including six-time motorcycle racing world champion Max Biaggi, who plans to ride into the record books on the Salar de Uyuni salt flat in Bolivia in July 2021.

The delay may have prevented the team from making their record run this month, but it hasn’t stopped them from unveiling the impressive bike today.

Princeton Researchers Use AI To Create Radar That Sees Around Corners

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, transportation

Tesla provided the first clues that radar could be trained to do more than just detect objects straight ahead. After the death of Joshua Brown on a Florida highway in 2016, Tesla tore up the Autopilot software created by MobilEye and pivoted from a camera-based to a radar-based system. In the process, it learned how to bounce radar signals under the car directly ahead to “see” what the next car in line was doing. That way, if a truck or SUV is blocking the view of the road ahead, a Tesla with the updated system could still detect if a car further up the road slowed or braked unexpectedly and take appropriate action.

Hyundai introduces a car that can climb walls

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, transportation

Hyundai unveiled the first look of a vehicle with robotic legs that will let it walk or crawl over treacherous terrain.

Hyundai Elevate can roll along on extended legs or retract them to be driven like a car. Extended legs could also be used to climb or crawl while keeping the passenger compartment level.

A scheme to enhance how swarm robots search for multiple targets

Posted by in categories: particle physics, robotics/AI, surveillance, transportation

Over the past decade or so, researchers have been trying to develop techniques that could enable effective collaborative strategies among teams of robots. One of the tasks that teams of robots could complete better than individual robots is simultaneously searching for several targets or objects in their surrounding environment.

The ability of a team of robots to collectively seek and identify numerous targets at once could be useful for a wide range of applications. For instance, it could aid surveillance applications and help to better track individuals or vehicles.

Researchers at Tongji University and University of Stuttgart have recently devised a systematic framework for enabling more effective multiple target search in swarm robots. This framework, presented in a paper published in IEEE Access, is based on the use of a mechanical particle swarm optimization method and artificial potential fields.

Tesla and the science behind the next-generation, lower-cost, ‘million-mile’ electric-car battery

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, science, sustainability, transportation

Elon Musk is often referred to as the real-life Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, and in the new quest to engineer an electric vehicle battery that lasts up to 1 million miles, iron may play the role of hero.
