Team Wins Data-Driven Scavenger Hunt for Simulated Nuclear Materials
Team Wins Data-Driven Scavenger Hunt for Simulated Nuclear Materials
Competing in a fictitious high-stakes scenario, a group of scientists at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) bested two dozen other teams in a months-long, data-driven scavenger hunt for simulated radioactive materials in a virtual urban environment. The goal of this hackathon-styled event was both to improve the detection methods that could be applied to actual threats involving nuclear materials, and to create a platform to virtually vet out these methods.

"Blind" Cheetah 3 robot can climb stairs littered with obstacles
MIT's Cheetah 3 robot can now leap and gallop across rough terrain, climb a staircase littered with debris, and quickly recover its balance when suddenly yanked or shoved, all while essentially blind. The 90-pound mechanical beast - about the size of a full-grown Labrador - is intentionally designed to do all this without relying on cameras or any external environmental sensors.

New Model Shows Where to Improve Power Grids
New Model Shows Where to Improve Power Grids
The big question Energy generation from renewable, but fluctuating, resources like solar and wind can add stress to the grid infrastructure, and in particular on specific links within it that can fail and cause brownouts. But how can we know where these vulnerable links are before that happens? The new discovery Researchers from Caltech and Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica national research center in Amsterdam created a mathematical framework that helps to predict where power line failures will occur.

Engineers build smart power outlet
Engineers build smart power outlet
Have you ever plugged in a vacuum cleaner, only to have it turn off without warning before the job is done? Or perhaps your desk lamp works fine, until you turn on the air conditioner that's plugged into the same power strip. These interruptions are likely "nuisance trips," in which a detector installed behind the wall trips an outlet's electrical circuit when it senses something that could be an arc-fault - a potentially dangerous spark in the electric line.

Fleet of autonomous boats could service some cities, reducing road traffic
The future of transportation in waterway-rich cities such as Amsterdam, Bangkok, and Venice - where canals run alongside and under bustling streets and bridges - may include autonomous boats that ferry goods and people, helping clear up road congestion. Researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and the Senseable City Lab in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning (DUSP), have taken a step toward that future by designing a fleet of autonomous boats that offer high maneuverability and precise control.

Albatross robot takes flight
MIT engineers have designed a robotic glider that can skim along the water's surface, riding the wind like an albatross while also surfing the waves like a sailboat. In regions of high wind, the robot is designed to stay aloft, much like its avian counterpart. Where there are calmer winds, the robot can dip a keel into the water to ride like a highly efficient sailboat instead.

Conductive Paint Transforms Walls Into Sensors, Interactive Surfaces
Smart walls react to human touch, sense activity In room Walls are what they are - big, dull dividers. With a few applications of conductive paint and some electronics, however, walls can become smart infrastructure that can sense human touch, detect gestures and detect when appliances are used. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and Disney Research found they could transform dull walls into smart walls at relatively low cost - about $20 per square meter - using simple tools and techniques, such as a paint roller.
