Kentaro Sonoura, national security adviser to PM Shinzo Abe, told TOI in an exclusive chat, “You should expect to see increased bilateral cooperation between us to develop unmanned ground vehicles (UGV) and robotics.” The strategic sphere is where the bulk of India-Japan convergence lies. After the nuclear agreement was ratified by the Japanese parliament late 2017, Sonoura said India and Japan would be setting up a joint task force for commercial…

STEAM not STEM: Why scientists need arts training

In 1959, the British physicist and novelist C.P. Snow delivered a famously controversial lecture at Cambridge University. He described a post-war schism between two groups — scientists and the literary world.

IROS 2016 – Tae Won Lim – Driving together, Robot and Automobile

Recently, there is an increased interest towards advanced technologies in the automotive industry such as autonomous driving and connectivity. There is a sharp increase in the investment in the related technologies. The future mobility will be based on eco-friendly, high-efficiency and high-safety features. Furthermore, conventional powertrain systems based on combustion engines are expected to be rapidly co-utilized or replaced with various kinds of electrical powertrain systems. Modern vehicles are integrated with advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, environmental perceptibility and V2X communication. In their implementation and usage, these technologies are very similar to those used in the robotics field. Therefore,…
