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 drone industry is growing by leaps and bounds! The FAA predicts the industry will need approximately 322,000 drone pilots by 2022. For a drone pilot, no day is ever the same. Most drone pilots work as freelance contractors, flying drones for major companies and small businesses. They’re using drones for everything from gathering thermal images of the ground to producing 3-D models of buildings. State Farm understands the value of adding drones and they are actively recruiting license remote Drone pilots. Read more about their pilots. It’s time to start your training now.
