Boston Band of Roboticists Aims to Rock Sidewalks With Personal Bots

NVIDIA Blog – 8.28.20 (8.27.20)

With Lime and Bird scooters covering just about every major U.S. city, you’d think all bets were off for walking. Think again.

Piaggio Fast Forward is staking its future on the idea that people will skip e-scooters or ride-hailing once they take a stroll with its gita robot. A Boston-based subsidiary of the iconic Vespa scooter maker, the company says the recent focus on getting fresh air and walking during the COVID-19 pandemic bodes well for its new robotics concept.

AI Startup Lets Foresters See the Wood for the Trees

NVIDIA Blog – 6.25.20

AI startup Trefos is helping foresters see the wood for the trees.

Using custom lidar and camera-mounted drones, the Philadelphia-based company collects data for high-resolution, 3D forest maps. These metrics allow government agencies and the forestry industry to estimate the volume of timber and biomass in an area of forest, as well as the amount of carbon stored in the trees.
