Sometimes manufacturers would like to install heating in objects that are difficult to heat. The armrest of your car. Your sporty winter coat. Bags for food delivery. Sleeping bags. etc This has been difficult to achieve until now. Read more about printed heater technology

The advantages and functioning of PTC heaters

In the Providentia++ project, researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have worked with industry partners to develop a technology to complement the vehicle perspective based on onboard sensor input with a bird’s-eye view of traffic conditions. This improves road safety – also for autonomous driving.

Bird's-eye view improves safety of autonomous driving

In this episode, we talk about how Toyota and Stanford are collaborating to utilize AI for drifting controls and the efforts behind a team at TUM which has resulted in an autonomous race car performing at the capacity of an amateur F1 driver.

Podcast: The Autonomous Race & Drift Cars Of The Not So Distant Future

In this episode, we talk about a TUM spin-off - DeepDrive that wants to address the difficulties in making new EVs from scratch by developing a “plug-and-play” platform along with DLR proposal for a hydrogen plug-in hybrid interurban vehicle to meet the carbon reduction targets of the European Union

Device speeds up, simplifies image processing for autonomous vehicles and other applications

Silicon image sensor that computes

Molecular particle free inks can offer extreme formability and stretchability, allowing the design and production of 3D shaped and/or in-mold electronics parts with extreme curvatures and complex shapes.

Complex 3D Electronic Shapes with Particle-Free Inks

Hyper-realistic virtual worlds have been heralded as the best driving schools for autonomous vehicles (AVs), since they’ve proven fruitful test beds for safely trying out dangerous driving scenarios.

Researchers release open-source photorealistic simulator for autonomous driving

In this episode, we talk about how researchers plan to orchestrate the movement of a fleet of cars in real-time to avoid or minimize waiting periods at stoplights and how off-road navigation is being tackled in a way that’ll make your car understand the dynamics of its surroundings like a human.

EPFL scientists have built a compact waveguide amplifier by successfully incorporating rare-earth ions into integrated photonic circuits. The device produces record output power compared to commercial fiber amplifiers, a first in the development of integrated photonics over the last decades.

Boosting light power revolutionizes communications and autopilot

Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University took an all-terrain vehicle on wild rides through tall grass, loose gravel and mud to gather data about how the ATV interacted with a challenging, off-road environment.

Roboticists Go Off Road To Compile Data That Could Train Self-Driving ATVs

Researchers use artificial intelligence to help autonomous vehicles avoid idling at red lights.

On the road to cleaner, greener, and faster driving

Designed to address the problem of a mismatch between intermediate objectives in a modular pipeline and overall system performance, CAPOs — Control-Aware Prediction Objectives — seek to inject a little common sense into future autonomous vehicles.

Control-aware predictions aim to teach autonomous vehicles what's important and what isn't

In the not-too-distant future, autonomous, networked vehicles will be able to handle most tasks independently. However, they are not yet capable of dealing with all traffic situations. If they encounter a problem that they do not know how to solve, safety comes first.

Teleoperation steps in when an autonomous vehicle does not know what to do

A novel class of LiDAR spoofing attacks on autonomous vehicles– the frustum attack, was then later validated using an existing hardware setup.
