How to mount an external removable hard drive on a robot - Credit: CC0 Public Domain We often want to add an external hard drive to our robots in order to have a dedicated drive for data collection. Having the dedicated drive lets the primary drive remain uncluttered, have less wear-and-tear, split logging between drives for performance, and potentially be a larger spinning disk (as opposed to an expensive SSD). It is also useful when the main hard drive is read only. (For mechanical mounti...

NHTSA ODI report exonerates Tesla in fatal crash - Tesla Model S autopilot-software. Source: Tesla NHTSA released the report from their Office of Defects Investigation on the fatal Tesla crash in Florida last spring. It’s a report that is surprisingly favorable to Tesla. So much so that even I am surprised. While I did not think Tesla would be found defective, this report seems to come from a different agency than the one that recently warned comma.ai that: It is insufficient to assert, as ...

How AR technology can help farmers stay relevant - Image: Wheat Genetics and Germplasm Improvement I’ve long believed that Augmented Reality (AR) and robotics are closely related. Both model their environments to some degree. Robotics uses that model to guide the behavior of a machine, whereas AR uses it to provide an enhanced sensory experience to a human. The exact nature of that enhanced experience is bounded only by available sensory, computational, and display (audio, haptic, ) hardwar...
