Outsight Develops a Edge Computing Device That Can Pre processes 3D
author: Eric Walz    Outsight's Augmented LiDAR Box is a lidar-agnostic plug & play edge computing device. As lidar sensors for perception become an essential technology for developers of autonomous vehicles, there are dozens of companies working to improve upon the technology, including developers of more reliable solid-state lidar sensors,including those that can identify objects at longer range.However, one of the challenges for developers of autonomous vehicles that use lidar sensors for perception is pre-processing massive amounts of raw lidar sensor data so its can be used along with other perception software. There are also many different lidar sensors on the market from dozens of companies, all with different capabilities and specifications. But French photonics company Outsight has come up with a...

The Research Group on Synthetic Biology for Biomedical Applications at Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona, Spain, has designed a cellular device capable of computing by printing cells on paper. For the first time, they have developed a living device that could be used outside the laboratory without a specialist, and it could be produced on an industrial scale at low cost. The study is published in Nature Communications and was carried out by Sira Mogas-Díez, Eva Gonzalez-Flo and Javier Macía. We currently have many electronic...
