Toyota Autonomous Drifting Car

Toyota Autonomous Drifting Car

Toyota Research Institute is developing autonomous drifting cars that guarantee active safety in extreme situations to prevent crashes, giving a normal driver the skills of a professional driver when faced with a dangerous situation while driving. The research team is developing algorithms that will allow the vehicle to cope with difficult situations like crashes autonomously. Autonomous Drifting Car.

A Wheeled-Quadruped Robot for Logistics and Delivery Applications

A team of six people from the Robotic Systems Lab of ETH Zurich developed Swiss-Mile, a wheeled-quadruped robot for autonomous delivery and logistics. image credit: the Robotic Systems Lab of ETH Zurich and Swiss-Mile The AI-powered quadruped can act like a car, a legged robot, and a humanoid robot, all in one robot for applications in delivery and logistics. Watch the robot in action in the following video: Key features: locomotion skills are performed using reinforcement learningdriving speed of up to 6.2 m/s (22.32 km/h or 13.87 miles/h)can stand up on two legs More information: https://rsl.ethz.ch/https://www.swiss-mile.com/ Thanks for reading this…
