Tiny solid-state LiDAR device can 3D-map a full 180-degree field of view


Researchers in South Korea have developed an ultra-small, ultra-thin LiDAR device that splits a single laser beam into 10,000 points covering an unprecedented 180-degree field of view. It's capable of 3D depth-mapping an entire hemisphere of vision in a single shot.

Autonomous cars and robots need to be able to perceive the world around them incredibly accurately if they're going to be safe and useful in real-world conditions. In humans, and other autonomous biological entities, this requires a range of different senses and some pretty extraordinary real-time data processing, and the same will likely be true for our technological offspring.

Swimming robot performs butterfly to move with unmatched speed


Scientists regularly draw ideas from the natural world in a bid to improve robotic performance, and when it comes to soft robots that swim, motion in the ocean is a rich source of inspiration. The latest creation to emerge in this space is a soft robot modeled on the manta ray that mimics butterfly stroke in humans to move through the water with unparalleled speed.
