Intelligent Senses: Cyborg Locusts and First Humanoid Robot with Intelligent Vision

Did you know that locusts can smell explosives? Did you also know that we can now control their brains to pinpoint to exactly what they are smelling? In this week’s podcast, we start things off with a closer look at how two teams of research scientists created a set of specialized cyborg bomb-sniffing locusts. We check out how these locusts are able to sense explosive chemicals in the air, how they are able to track these explosive smells, and how we can now identify exactly what they are smelling by reading their brain waves. Also this week, Alessandro Gasparini and Alain Pacquin (Immervision) join us to discuss JOYCE: the first humanoid robot for the computer vision community. We discuss the details of how Immervision and their partners will enable JOYCE to have human perceptions and how design contests will assist with the evolution of this first-of-her-kind humanoid robot.

Traction Inverter

Sponsored by Infineon

Not only are traction inverters integral parts of an electric drive train and vital to the vehicle motion, but they can also make a big difference when it comes to the energy efficiency and functional safety of electric vehicles. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Mathew Anil from Infineon about the variety of roles that traction inverters play battery electric vehicles, how silicon carbide technology in traction inverters can reduce the size of electric car batteries and how traction inverters can also help with cost reduction, functional safety and more.
