Toyota Finds ‘Extreme’ Test Site for New Self-Driving Car

Toyota Research Institute (TRI) will test its Platform 2.1 autonomous driving system at California’s GoMentum Station. TRI said “GoMentum’s varied terrain, and real-life infrastructure including roads, bridges, tunnels, intersections and parking lots provide the environment needed to accelerate testing of” autonomous vehicles.

Robotics principles help wave energy converters better absorb power of ocean waves

Compared to wind and solar energy, wave energy has remained relatively expensive and hard to capture, but engineers are working to change that by drawing inspiration from other industries. The engineering team has designed, modeled and tested a control system that doubles the amount of power a wave energy converter can absorb from ocean waves, making electricity produced from wave energy less expensive.
