Playa Vista CA (SPX) Nov 14, 2019. The trust between humans and autonomous machines is a top priority for Army researchers - as machines become integral to society, it is critical to understand the impact on human decision-making. Dr. Celso M. de Melo, a computer scientist from the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command's Army Research Laboratory at its ARL West campus in Playa Vista, California, along with Japan.

Washington (AFP) Nov 20, 2019. A US investigation into the death of a pedestrian struck by a self-driving Uber car faulted driver inattention along with "inadequate" safety measures implemented by the company. The National Transportation Safety Board said the "immediate cause" of the March 2018 accident was that the driver - able to take the controls from the autonomous car at any time - "was visually distracted through.

Washington (AFP) Nov 20, 2019. US officials said Wednesday they have agreed to grant licenses to "several" firms to provide components to Chinese tech giant Huawei, which faces sanctions imposed over national security concerns. A Commerce Department spokesman said the agency had granted "narrow licenses to authorize limited and specific activities which do not pose a significant risk to the national security or foreign po.

Potsdam, Germany (SPX) Nov 20, 2019. Electricity supply is one of the biggest CO2 emitters globally. To keep global warming well below 2 C, several paths lead to zero emissions in the energy sector, and each has its potential environmental impacts - such as air and water pollution, land-use or water demand. Using a first-time combination of multiple modelling systems, an international team of researchers led by the Potsdam Institut.

Tokyo, Japan (SPX) Nov 21, 2019. Light is versatile in nature. In other words, it shows different characteristics when traveling through different types of materials. This property has been explored in various technologies, but the way in which light interacts with materials needs to be manipulated to get the desired effect. This is done using special devices called light modulators, which have the ability to modify the propert.

Houston TX (SPX) Nov 21, 2019. Researchers from the University of Houston have reported a new device that can both efficiently capture solar energy and store it until it is needed, offering promise for applications ranging from power generation to distillation and desalination. Unlike solar panels and solar cells, which rely on photovoltaic technology for the direct generation of electricity, the hybrid device captures.

Paris (AFP) Nov 20, 2019. Airlines have taken steps to reduce their carbon footprints under the gaze of public opinion, but the pressure of the bottom line means some fly with extra fuel, boosting emissions of climate-changing greenhouse gases. As the highly competitive air travel industry is being pushed to reduce its carbon emissions - which it puts at two to three percent of the global total - the practice known.

Beijing (AFP) Nov 20, 2019. China plans to add new coal power plants equivalent to all of the EU's current generating capacity, putting the world's biggest emitter out of sync with its commitments to combat climate change, researchers said Wednesday. China built enough new plants between January 2018 and June 2019 - nearly 43 gigawatts worth of capacity - to cancel out the decrease in the rest of the world, said the.

Hong Kong (SPX) Nov 19, 2019. Dr Tony Shien-Ping Feng of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Hong Kong (HKU) and his team invented a Direct Thermal Charging Cell (DTCC) which can effectively convert heat to electricity, creating a huge potential to reduce greenhouse effects by capturing exhaust heat and cutting down primary energy wastage. Low grade heat is abundantly available in industrial p.

Oak Ridge TN (SPX) Nov 19, 2019. A scientific team from the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Vanderbilt University has made the first experimental observation of a material phase that had been predicted but never seen. The newly discovered phase couples with a known phase to enable unique control over material properties - an advance that paves the way to eventual manipulation of electrical conduction in.

Adelaide, Australia (SPX) Nov 19, 2019. A new wet suit material tested by Flinders marine researchers can help reduce blood loss caused by shark bites, to reduce injuries and prevent the leading cause of death from shark bites. The study published in PLOS ONE tested two types of protective fabrics that incorporate ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fibres (UHMWPE) onto widely used neoprene material in wet suits, and compar.

Washington (AFP) Nov 18, 2019. HP Inc. said Sunday it turned down a $33 billion hostile takeover bid from Xerox, saying it undervalued the computer and printer maker. But the HP board said it still would like to discuss the possibility of reaching a deal with its rival, a venerable US tech company best known for its photocopy machines. "We recognize the potential benefits of consolidation, and we are open to explorin.

Vienna, Austria (SPX) Nov 20, 2019. They are reminiscent of the "tractor beam" in Star Trek: special light beams can be used to manipulate molecules or small biological particles. Even viruses or cells can be captured or moved. However, these optical tweezers only work with objects in empty space or in transparent liquids. Any disturbing environment would deflect the light waves and destroy the effect. This is a problem, in partic.

Washington (AFP) Nov 19, 2019. President Donald Trump on Tuesday warned that failure to get a trade deal with China will prompt more tariffs. "If we don't make a deal with China, I'll just raise the tariffs even higher," he told reporters at the White House. Trump's latest tough comment came as markets are watching intensely for signs of progress in the two economic superpowers' attempt to reach a so-called "phase one.

Washington DC (SPX) Nov 14, 2019. The DARPA Subterranean (SubT) Challenge Urban Circuit will take place Feb. 18-27, 2020, at Satsop Business Park west of Olympia, Washington. In the SubT Challenge, teams deploy autonomous ground and aerial systems to attempt to map, identify, and report artifacts along two competition courses. The artifacts represent items a first responder or service member may encounter in underground environm.

Paris (ESA) Nov 19, 2019. ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano will take control of a robot in the Netherlands while orbiting Earth in the International Space Station at a speed of around 7.8 km per second. In a series of experiments, collectively called Analog-1, the Space Station will be used as a stand-in for a spacecraft in orbit around another planetary body, such as the lunar Gateway.

London (AFP) Nov 19, 2019. British no-frills airline EasyJet on Tuesday began offsetting carbon emissions amid global concerns over climate change - but flew into strong criticism from green campaigners who dismissed the move as insufficient. The carrier, based in Luton north of London, announced it was meeting customer demands to reduce its carbon footprint in the short term - while also researching new greener tec.
