If approved, Lyft customers will be able to the Lyft app to hail a ride in nuTonomy’s self-driving electric Renault around a limited portion of the Seaport, where nuTonomy has been testing three vehicles since November 2016. Future Tech · Driverless TransportationColorado Passes Law to Regulate Self-Driving Vehicles
Colorado passed its first law to regulate self-driving vehicles to attract companies to test the technology in the state. The law allows self-driving vehicle testing as long as operators obey existing road rules. Future Tech · Driverless TransportationSelf-Driving Cars Approved for Public Tests in Germany
Germany passed a law that allows self-driving car tests on public roads. A human driver needs to be behind the wheel at all times, and the cars need to have a black box that tracks data in case of accidents. Future Tech · Driverless TransportationMIT C-LEARN Helps Robots Learn, Share Skills
MIT CSAIL researchers have developed a Constraints Learning (C-LEARN) system that easily teaches robots a variety of tasks, including opening doors, transporting objects and extracting objects from containers. After a robot learns a new skill with this C-LEARN system, that knowledge can be automatically transferred to other robots.
