A drone that leads the way in mapping underground

Hovermap technology allows drones to collect data in underground areas, or other locations in which GPS is not reliable. It’s the result of a decade of research from CSIRO’s robotics and autonomous systems group. The drones can be deployed without a human controller and can create 3D maps, record gas readings and take images and videos.. They are equipped with lasers, which let them detect the environment around them. The CSIRO ON accelerator program, was the catalyst for the commercialisation of the venture. http://www.emesent.io/

A smart time management system for taxis

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is launching a Smart Time Management System at venues of events such as exhibitions and conferences. The system enables the RTA to get real time data on numbers of visitors then deploy the appropriate number of transit means. It also enables passengers to get information on the number of available vehicles along with the expected waiting time. The system comprises screens placed at the start, middle and end of a queue, a device for counting visitors and sorting out the type of service required at the start of the queue, and a device to measure customer satisfaction ratings. http://www.smartcitiesworldforums.com/news/smart-cities-middle-east/smart-mobility-deployments-me/970-new-smart-time-management-system-for-taxis-in-dubai

A social supermarket for those at risk of food poverty

Social supermarkets have emerged in Britain in the past five years as a response to food poverty and food waste. These non-charitable initiatives sell food “surplus” to people on low incomes at heavily discounted prices, and provide social support. Most social supermarkets can be found in the 10-20 per cent of most deprived neighbourhoods. They primarily stock food surplus, as well as some non-food goods. These are products originally intended for sale in the mainstream market which have become unsaleable. Food isn’t given away for free or handed out, as in food banks. Instead it’s offered in a retail-like environment at heavily discounted prices – access is generally on a controlled basis to “members”, selected by using certain socioeconomic or geographic criteria, to target those who are at risk of food poverty. https://theconversation.com/how-social-supermarkets-are-filling-a-gap-in-austerity-britain-99705

An AI lie detector that flags false police reports

Imagine this: You file a police report, but back at the station, they feed it into an algorithm — and it accuses you of lying, as though it had somehow looked inside your brain. That might sound like science fiction, but Spain is currently rolling out a very similar program, called VeriPol, in many of its police stations. VeriPol’s creators say that when it flags a report as false, it turns out to be correct more than four-fifths of the time. https://futurism.com/the-byte/lie-detector-false-police-reports

Hospitals are using VR to alleviate pain during treatments

Hospitals are finding that the ability to distract patients with fully immersive, fun and relaxing sensory environments with virtual reality can have a significant impact on the anxiety and pain that they experience during minor procedures, dressing changes and other medical treatments. https://med.stanford.edu/news/all-news/2017/09/virtual-reality-alleviates-pain-anxiety-for-pediatric-patients.html

Making bricks from human urine

Students at the University of Cape Town have created the first ever bio-bricks made of human urine. They mixed last night’s liquids with sand and bacteria to unlock calcium carbonate (a bonding agent) in the urine. The mixture is placed in moulds and hardens (surprisingly) at room temperature. Creating useable bricks out of urine is clever, but doing it without the usual energy-intensive firing process is outstanding. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-10-26/cape-town-university-researchers-make-bricks-from-urine/10432766

Electric boats and trucks in national parks

We’re now in Chobe National Park Botswana Africa and are pleased that the Chobe Game Lodge, where we’re staying, uses electric boats for river cruising. They are powered by batteries overnight and use solar energy from panels on the roof as backup power. This means the boats are quieter and respect the surrounding wildlife and environment. They also use electric safari trucks for the same reason.
