Hey Kids A Neighborhood Pizza Robot Coming To You Soon!
Domino’s is rolling out a robot car delivery service to select customers in Houston. For those who opt in, their pies will arrive in a fully autonomous vehicle made by Nuro.
Here’s how it works: Customers in the Woodland Heights neighborhood of Houston can choose robot delivery and receive texts with updates on the car’s location and a numerical code that can be used to retrieve the order. Once the car arrives, the customer enters the number on the bot’s touchscreen, and the car doors open up to serve the food. Nuro’s robot car was the first completely autonomous, human-free on-road delivery vehicle to receive regulatory approval from the US Department of Transportation last year, Domino’s said.
In Febuary 2021, a new Rover by the name of Perseverance landed on Mars, but unlike rovers that have come before it, this one had a very special passenger attached to it, in the form of a helicopter drone, called Ingenuity. NASA’s Helicopter drone, is humanity’s first attempt at powered controlled flight of an aircraft, on another planet. The helicopter took flight on April 19th 2021, at 12:33 Mars Time, a time and day NASA determined would give optimal energy and flight conditions for the solar powered drone.
The first test flight involves lifting off, climbing to 10 feet, hovering for about 30 seconds, and then descending. Since the time delay from Mission control back on earth to Mars would take too long to manually control the drone, it has to be able to perform each flight all on its own, No joystick, No live pilot, No real-time help, In alien conditions, with almost no atmosphere.
NASA launches its next Mars rover this summer, it will have a very special cargo on board: A helicopter. NASA’s Ingenuity aims to be the first robot to take flight on another planet. Here’s why it’s such a big deal.
The prevalence of the Coronavirus has prompted organizations in China to utilize aerial solutions to exponentialize impact.. Watch how drones are being used as a tool in a variety of ways to combat this outbreak.
The USDA is funding a drone cow facial recognition project at the University of Kentucky until 2021. The USDA is testing to see if drones can monitor the health of farm animals. “2.5 million US cattle die every year from health issues, accounting for 60% of the cattle losses.” Multiple 3DR Solo drones hover between 90 to 270 feet above the herd using various cameras down facing to gather the facials of various cows. one drone serves as the data collector while the other drones filter their data (such as biometric volume) to the central unit. Currently, the tests are centered in the lab (using Chuck a 3D model) to ensure this method of autonomous flight is safe prior to going live in the field.
