More than 20 years ago, a team set out to solve a problem: How do we reduce power loss and help reduce MOSFET size at the same time? LFPAK was the answer - and it changed everything.

A story of innovation: How LFPAK revolutionized an industry.

Beach cleaning operations focus on removing the waste we can see, such as plastic water bottles and trash, often using gas-powered tractors that bury microplastics beneath the top layer of sand. In contrast, the Cornell Nexus robot will use renewable solar energy to collect and remove microplastic waste.

Students design robot to collect microplastics from beaches

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

Lockheed Martin and General Motors are developing the next generation of lunar rovers for NASA's Artemis mission.

Vehicles that can propel themselves along the water and self-navigate around any object in their path could soon be a reality thanks to new research from The Australian National University (ANU).

Self-propelling self-navigating vehicles a step closer

Dolphin 1 is a revolutionary remote-controlled lifesaving buoy from Ocean Alpha. This company provides unmanned surface vehicles to government and commercial entities with 92 USV related pacts spanning 25 products ranging from 1 to 50 meters in length.
