Using Sonar to Navigate the World

April 1, 2015 10:29 am | by Daniel Kish, TED Talk | Videos | Comments

Daniel Kish has been blind since he was 13 months old, but has learned to “see” using a form of echolocation. He clicks his tongue and sends out flashes of sound that bounce off surfaces in the environment and return to him, helping him to construct an understanding of the space around him. In a rousing talk, Kish demonstrates how this works ...

A New Spin on Navigation

April 1, 2015 10:21 am | by Kelly Mack, The Optical Society | News | Comments

A pair of light waves - one zipping clockwise the other counterclockwise around a microscopic track - may hold the key to creating the world's smallest gyroscope: one a fraction of the width of a human hair. By bringing this essential technology down to an entirely new scale, a team of applied physicists hopes to enable a new generation of phenomenally compact gyroscope-based navigation systems, among other intriguing applications ...

RC Aircraft or Drones?

March 31, 2015 11:40 am | by Viet Nguyen, Senior Software Engineer, Intel Corporation | Articles | Comments

RC Aircraft have been around since before World War II. This popular hobby evolved in the last decades, but essentially is based on a flying model, mostly aircraft or helicopter, and a radio transmitter to control it. The range of these transmitters varies from 1 to 2 miles, even though the RC pilot couldn’t fly any farther than his/her visual range in order to control the aircraft ...
