2018 Audi A8 Body Structure - Engineering Wonder (Excellence)
 
04:12
Looking ahead to the new Audi A8: Space Frame with a unique mix of materials Luxury sedan living up to its reputation as an innovation driver in lightweight design Comfortable entry and improved view thanks to roller hemming Extraordinary torsional rigidity delivers gains in driving dynamics and acoustics Know-how based on more than one million series cars with Audi Space Frames Audi is writing a new chapter in its lightweight design success story. For the next generation of the Audi A8*, an intelligent mix of four materials is being used for the first time in the weight-bearing body structure – more materials than in any of the brand’s previous production models. The luxury sedan is thus once again rightfully claiming its role as an innovation driver in automotive lightweight design: Its low weight and impressive rigidity offer greater performance, efficiency and safety. The lightweight design experts at Audi long ago abandoned the fixation on using a single material in lightweight design. With a mix of aluminum, steel, magnesium and carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) they are establishing a new stage in multi-material construction in the Audi Space Frame (ASF) for the next generation of the Audi A8 – in keeping with the principle “the right material in the right place and in the right amount.” Audi consistently applies new material technologies and designs that directly benefit the customer – and not only in terms of weight. The upcoming flagship’s torsional rigidity – the critical parameter for precise handling and pleasing acoustics – surpasses the excellent values of its predecessor by a factor of about one fourth. Innovative production process – the carbon rear panel in the new Audi A8 In terms of its overall dimensions, an ultra-high-strength, torsionally rigid rear panel made of CFRP is the largest component in the occupant cell of the new Audi A8, and it contributes 33 percent to the torsional rigidity of the total vehicle. To optimally absorb longitudinal and transverse loads as well as shearing force, between six and 19 fiber layers are placed one on top of the other, ensuring a load-optimized layout. These individual fiber layers consist of tapes 50 millimeters (2.0 in) wide and can be placed individually in a finished layered package, with any desired fiber angle and minimal trimming of the fibers. The innovative direct-fiber layering process specially developed for this purpose makes it possible to entirely dispense with the normally needed intermediary step of manufacturing entire sheets. Using another newly developed process, the layered package is wetted with epoxide resin and sets within minutes. A high-strength combination of hot-formed steel components make up the occupant cell, which comprises the lower section of the front bulkhead, the side sills, the B-pillars and the front section of the roof line. Some of these sheet metal blanks are produced in varying thicknesses using tailoring technologies – meaning they are customized – and others also undergo partial heat treatment. That reduces weight and increases the strength, especially in areas of the vehicle that are particularly critical for safety. The aluminum components make up 58 percent of the new Audi A8 body, the largest share in the mix of materials. Cast nodes, extruded profiles and sheets are the elements characteristic of the ASF design. And here too the competition of materials has been driving progress. New heat-treated, ultra-high-strength cast alloys attain a tensile strength of over 230 MPa (megapascals). The corresponding yield strength in the tensile test is over 180 MPa, and for the profile alloys it is higher than 280, i.e. 320 MPa – significantly higher values than seen previously. Rounding out the intelligent mix of materials is the magnesium strut brace. A comparison with the predecessor model shows that it contributes a 28-percent weight savings. Aluminum bolts secure the connection to the strut tower domes, making them a guarantor of the body’s high torsional rigidity. In the event of a frontal collision, the forces generated are distributed to three impact buffers in the front end. Benefits for customers and the environment – the new body shop for the Audi A8. In addition to the complete redevelopment of the Audi Space Frame for the next generation A8, the production halls at the Neckarsulm location were specially built for the upcoming flagship. A total of 14,400 metric tons of steel were needed just for construction of the new, 41-meter-high body shop, twice as much steel as was used for the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

Engineering By Design: Army Wants to Give Soldiers a Third Arm
 
04:37
Can Humans Keep Up With Machines? Elon Musk is trying to conquer land with Tesla, space with SpaceX, and now he's after our brains. On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that the tech billionaire is launching a new venture called Neuralink, which is focused on linking brains to computers. According to the report, the company will further brain implant technology that can one day be used to treat neural disorders. We've seen similar tech in impressive applications, like the EEG-based brain-computer interface from the University of Minnesota, which allows people to control a robotic arm using only their minds; the brain-machine interface from the Walk Again Project, which allows the user to control the movements of a lower-limb robotic exoskeleton; and the DARPA-funded research out of the University of Pittsburgh which helped a quadriplegic man feel the sense of tough again by directly connecting a robotic arm to his brain. According to the report, Neuralink already has hired several leading researchers in the field. Neuralink's implants could also help the human race keep up with super-intelligent computers in the future. Musk has been very outspoken about the risk that unchecked artificial intelligence poses to humans. In January 2015, he joined Stephen Hawking and other A.I. experts who signed an open letter on artificial intelligence from the Future of Life Institute which called for further research on the societal benefits of A.I., as well as potential pitfalls. In a tweet, Musk said that we can expect more information on the new venture in about a week. U-Lion UAV Reconfigures Mid-Flight This is the U-Lion, a hybrid vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) UAV that takes off and lands like a helicopter, and transitions in mid-air to fly like a normal airplane. The U-Lion was designed by a pair of PhD students with the National University of Singapore, Unmanned System Research Group who spent four years developing the hybrid UAV. The U-Lion's wings retract and extend to stabilize the craft during take-off and landing, and provide lift during flight. The hybrid UAV would be particularly useful in both military and civilian operations whenever the user was working in a tight window, like sea surveillance or forest mapping. The viability is the reason that several companies are working on vastly different concepts, like Google’s Project Wing automated aircraft hybrid UAV that recently started testing at an FAA test site run by Virginia Tech. U-Lion is unique because of its reconfigurable wings and vectoring thrust that adopt to the flight mission, depending on the requirements. This allows it to fly much longer than typical VTOL UAVs and have greater maneuverability compared to normal fixed wing UAVs. Army Wants to Give Soldiers a Third Arm Army ground troops may soon have a "third arm" that will carry their weapon for them. Now, this isn't some sort of crude joke, but rather a device that attaches to a soldier's protective vest to free up his/her hands to hold a shield, or for example, use a power saw during a breach. The Army Research Lab is currently testing the four-pound weapon mount as they look at new ways for soldiers to interface with their weapons. According to Zac Wingard, a mechanical engineer at the lab, the hope it to be able to improve "ballistic performance of future weapons without increasing soldier burden." So, when soldiers start to carry handheld laser weapons and railguns, it will likely increase their combat loads that already exceed 110 pounds. The third arm puts all of the weight on the soldier's body, taking about twenty pounds off of their arms, which could also help keep soldiers from breaking down in training, before they ever see a day in combat. The third arm is made out of carbon fiber composite, and the research lab is currently testing it at the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland with an M4 carbine, though the plan is test larger weapons, like the M240B machine gun. Right now, researchers are just at the shooting range, and before they do any field testing, they’ll have to ruggedize the proof-of-concept.

Blue Origin Debuts Space Capsule Last week, Jeff Bezos, the engineer of Amazon.com fortune and fame, offered a sneak peek at a new development in his $500 million side project. He released new images of the progress that aerospace manufacturer Blue Origin has made in developing the New Shepard capsule. Soon, the capsules will be sending well-paying space tourists on 11-minute suborbital flights. According to Bezos, while the New Shepard flight test program has been focused on system performance, the Blue Origin team has also been designing the capsule interior "with an eye toward precision engineering, safety, and comfort" — and it looks like they nailed it. The capsule will hold six people who will be able to get out of their seats and experience weightlessness as they gaze out of what the company is calling the largest windows ever in space. What I found fascinating was the center console, and how it resembles Echo, Amazon's voice controlled speaker. Who knows, maybe Alexa will be your guide on these 11-minute trips to the doorstep of space. The capsules were on display at the 33rd Space Symposium in Colorado Springs this week, and the crowd seemed impressed, even Buzz Aldrin. Blue Origin still plans to have human test flights by the end of 2017, with customer flights beginning in 2018. DARPA's Sub-Scale UAV DARPA recently flight-tested a sub-scale version of a novel aircraft design as part of its vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) X-Plane program, and it looks like a better solution than that U-Lion we saw last week, or perhaps just a little further along. Made by Aurora Flight Sciences, the aircraft has 24 electric ducted fans—18 within the main wings and six in the front wing (canard), that allow the plane to take off and land vertically. After the successful tests, they’ll now begin work on the full-scale version. The full-scale VTOL X-Plane, officially called the XV-24A, will weigh 12,000 pounds – nearly four times the size of the craft in the recent test. The full-scale craft will also have to hit specific performance targets. So, we can look forward to the next version that should be able to exceed 300 knots, which is about 345 mph. Boeing’s New Horizon Yesterday, Boeing announced HorizonX, a new innovation cell that the company hopes to use as a vehicle to find and accelerate emerging technologies, particularly transformative aerospace technologies, manufacturing innovations and emerging business models. The announcement came with news of the venture's first two investments, which will help gauge what is catching the company’s eye. The first is Washington, D.C.-based Upskill, which makes enterprise software for augmented reality (AR) wearables. We have previously discussed the potential impact AR with have on the industry, and Upskill is focused on using it to enhance productivity, quality and safety in manufacturing, field service and logistics. The second investment is Zunum Aero, a Kirkland, Wash.-based company that trying to develop alternative propulsion aircraft. The startup is trying to build hybrid electric airplanes that, according to GeekWire, could reduce fares by up to 80% for ~1,000 mile trips. Boeing has been working with Upskill for more than two years to see if it could find a use for the company’s technology. But if Zunum sounds more like your style, the company is looking for help, particularly anyone with expertise in aircraft design, aeroacoustics, propulsors, electric drives, power conversion, battery packs, optimization and control. This is Engineering By Design with David Mantey.

Engineering By Design: IoT Pet Door with Facial Recognition
 
04:59
Shredded Tires Make Great Concrete Engineers from the University of British Columbia are using recycled tires to create stronger concrete. The new concrete could be used to prevent cracking in everything from buildings to bridges, and it will also help further reduces the number of tires that make it into landfills. Of the 290 million tires thrown out each year just in the U.S., more than 80 percent are reused and recycled in some way. Still, that leaves about 57 million or so tires to do many other things with, like make a new concrete. The new concrete is a mix of cement, sand and water and .35 percent tire fibers. Now, recycled-rubber roads are not new, some asphalt roads in the U.S. have rubber crumbs from shredded tires. Most of you will be familiar with the crumbs that replaced pea gravel on playgrounds, and cover sweaty diving athletes on athletic fields. You can even find them in mulch. This new process uses the tire fiber, not the crumbs. Every tire, when it’s recycled, can produce 1 kg of fiber. In initial tests, the concrete has reduced cracks by more than 90 percent. The concrete industry produces six billion cubic feet of concrete each year and the world throws away about three billion tires. If their tests check out, we could soon see concrete that is more resistant to loading, more durable, and helps keep tires out of landfills. Facial Recognition for Pet Doors A new DIY project was posted to Hackster by Windows. It's a Windows 10 IoT Core doggy door with pet recognition. The door includes a webcam, MinnowBoard Max (but you can use a Raspberry Pi), passive IR sensors, servo motors and open CV, or open source computer vision. When the pet walks up to the door, it triggers the motion sensor which turns on the webcam and captures a few pictures of the animal and runs it through a classifier. So it knows which animal it is, and whether or not it belongs on the other side of that door. You can even set up a user interface that lets you see what else has tried using the door, and if you're the micromanaging type, you can see just how frequently your animals come and go. You can even set it up to send you text-messages with photos of blocked animals with an option to override the system with a reply text. Pipeline Pushed to Breaking Point Last week, researchers headed to the Cornell Geotechnical Lifelines Large-Scale Testing Facility to test advanced infrastructure sensors. Developed by UC-Berkeley and the University of Cambridge, the sensors are designed to measure strain, temperature, movement and leakage. For the test, they installed the sensors along a 40-foot section of a new type of earthquake-proof pipeline designed by IPEX, and then they buried it with 80 tons of soil. Engineers watched as the pipe experienced a simulated fault rupture while buried inside a hydraulically powered "split basin" that they filled with the soil. While testing the sensors, they also wanted to test the pipe for earthquake fault-rupture performance. The test was the first time that the sensors had been used to monitor buried infrastructure, and gave an unprecedented look at the pipe's ability to elongate and bend while being subject to ground failure. The sensors drew interest from the municipal engineers in attendance, who need new ways to monitor underground infrastructure. IPEX’s pipeline itself is innovative. The company uses a molecularly-oriented polyvinylchloride material that is engineered to stretch, bend and compress as it withstands extreme ground deformation. In a separate four-joint bending test, attendees had a chance to see the pipe's ability to bend, and it is a suspenseful, if not impressive, 26 seconds. Next, the research team will dig out the pipeline and analyze the data collected by the sensors. This is Engineering By Design with David Mantey.

Engineering By Design: Japan’s New Bullet Train to Reach 250 mph
 
06:28
Robot Workers Take Over the Job Site Joblessness is falling, skilled workers are becoming harder to find and some American employers could be running out of skilled people to hire. It's one of those good/bad problems to have in a nation. Well, Japan has a similar issue as the country faces an aging population and declining birth rates that will lead to labor shortages across the board. When it comes being short handed in the construction industry, Japan's National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), has turned to robots to fill in the gaps. Researchers recently unveiled the Human Robotics Platform (HRP)-5P prototype robot, which can perform tasks that are typically found on the job site, such as picking up a piece of drywall from a stack, moving it into position and and anchoring it to a wall. The HRP-5P is capable, but the prototype is incredibly slow and seeming thrown off balance every time it drives a screw.  Ford Puts Graphene Under the Hood in Mustangs, F-150s Yesterday, we celebrated National Nanotechnology Day. It's a real thing, had a hashtag and everything: #NationalNanoDay. The date 10/9 is actually significant, as the National Nanotechnology Initiative chose it because it pays homage to the nanometer scale 10-9 meters power, or one billionth of a meter. MIT made an elevator button, but nobody shrank — not even a timely cut to Innerspace. The Molecular Foundry made a mascot for kids, Nancy Nano, which looks like an animated STD, and Ford used the occasion to announce that for the first time in company history, it is using graphene under the hood. Ford collaborated with Eagle Industries and XG Sciences to find a way to use small amounts, less than a half percent, of graphene in fuel rail covers, pump covers and front engine covers. While it's not cost-effective to use it in all applications, it is a very thin and flexible material that can provide a sound barrier and help make the parts lighter but more durable. Japan’s New Bullet Train to Reach 250 mph While the nation is working hard to replace the laborer with humanoid robots, Japan is also well known for its progressive approach to mass transit, and it's commitment to the bullet train. Last week, the East Japan Railway Company (JR-EAST) announced plans for an experimental new train that could begin testing as soon as May 2019. They call it the ALFA-X and they’re going to push the prototype to see if it is capable of reaching nearly 250 mph (400 km/h). Once in service, it would average 224 mph (360 km/h). The ALFA-X will test two new nose designs, one that is 16 m long and another that is 22 m long. The noses were developed to reduce the pressure generated when the bullet train enters a tunnel at high speeds. With both designs, the trains trade interior space for improved performance and lower noise. The design also incorporates lighter materials and new vibration damping components that make the ALFA-X more efficient and hopefully provide a smoother ride for passengers. JR-EAST also incorporated new earthquake detection technology such as "anti-earthquake dampers" which help keep the train stable when the earth starts shaking. The fastest train in America, the Amtrak from Boston to D.C., averages 68 mph, though it does top out at 150 mph along a few stretches. Still, a far cry from the ALFA-X. This is Engineering By Design.

Spit-Powered Batteries Used for handshakes, simple wounds or even a cleanser in a pinch, spit is back in the news after researchers at Binghamton University have designed a unique battery that works when you spit on it. The development is the next step in microbial fuel cells that are meant to be used in extreme conditions where normal batteries simply won't work. The batteries are paper-based and powered by bacteria. They consist of microbial fuel cells that have freeze-dried exoelectrogenic cells that generate power within minutes when you add saliva. In some areas of the world, commercial batteries and energy harvesting devices are unattainable, too expensive, or simply more than you need. The idea here is a way to provide simple and inexpensive power to point-of-care diagnostic devices. The researchers are now working to increase the power density and go from microwatts to milliwatts of energy. Right now, you have to daisy-chain 16 of these things together to power an LED. Tesla’s Big Trucks Yesterday, Reuters reported that Tesla is working on autonomous (and electric) long-haul semi-trucks. In theory, they will move in "platoons" that follow a lead truck. According to Reuters, the company is getting closer to testing two prototype trucks, and hopes to do so in Nevada. In April, Elon Musk tweeted that the Tesla Semi Truck was scheduled to be unveiled in September. Tesla's truck has stiff competition from Uber, which has the autonomous Otto; Daimler's Freightliner Inspiration Truck; and Waymo's autonomous truck. According to research group McKinsey & Company, one-third of long-haul trucks will be semi-autonomous by 2025 though some remain skeptical that they will be able to compete in terms of total distance cargo hold with diesel trucks currently used in the market. Ballistic Helmet Withstands .357 Blast The Ronin Gen II Ballistic Helmet from DEVTAC is a commercial, fully enclosed ballistic helmet that weighs 4.85 pounds. It's about 2 pounds heavier than the Advanced Combat Helmet in the Army, but a bit more comprehensive protection. According to Business Insider, British special forces are currently testing the helmet which offers 80% ballistic protection to the head, with a full Kevlar shell and 7 mm ballistic plates. I was skeptical until I watched the video of independent tester National Technical Systems (NTS) shooting it in the back with a .357. It passed. The panels are bolted on and supplemented with Neodymium Magnets. The lenses are made of a replaceable polycarbonate but I particularly liked the built-in microjet fans that work as a defogging system. A possible solution to my fogging problems that I've had while paintballing. Now, while they don't have a paintball-specific version available, they do have a non-ballistic mask for Airsoft guns. You can even outfit it with a Samurai-inspired Mempo mask. No word on whether or not the Mempo mask is being considered by the Brits. The ballistic version reportedly costs about $1300, and you can even customize your own on the site. However, it may be a while before you receive one. Due to the volume of orders the company has received, you can only order via email.

So when approached to design and fabricate a four-story modular residence for Red Hook, an area in Brooklyn hard-hit by Hurricane Sandy, the firm was quick to rise to the occasion. The project also gave SHoP a perfect opportunity to test out its new implementation of Dassault Systèmes' (3DS) 3DEXPERIENCE® platform on the Cloud.

PAL-V Unveils Flying Car at Motor Show We first heard of the PAL-V flying car last April, when the Dutch company showed off a scale model of the Liberty in Monaco. The Liberty is PAL-V's new three-wheel gyroplane. This week, attendees at the Geneva motor show had a chance to see the first two-seat production model, and it did not disappoint. Unlike the Switchblade, Liberty is no kit car. The flying car has a retractable propeller mounted on the back that is driven by two engines. A large rotor, that also retracts, is mounted on the roof to stabilize the vehicle. According to the company, the transition from car to plane takes about 10 minutes. Capable of 105 mph on the road, 110 mph in the air, the PAL-V has a range of 310 miles in the air on a tank of regular unleaded gas — but it is going to cost you, to the tune of $615,000. The company's first production run will only include 90 vehicles. You will still need a pilot's license and an airstrip to fly. Unlike vertical takeoff and landing aircraft currently in development, the Liberty needs 100-650 ft of airstrip to takeoff and land. The company believes that as flying cars become more mainstream, small airstrips will begin to pop up all over the globe. PAL-V is currently going through the final stages of certifying the Liberty for the road and the air. It didn't give a timeline for when the first production model will hit the streets. These Tools 3D Print Metal on CNCs Based out of Los Angeles, CA, 3D-Hybrid is the company behind the world's largest metal 3D printer. Well now, the company may make metal 3D printers obsolete with new hybrid manufacturing processes. Hybrid manufacturing is a new term for processes that combines traditional additive and subtractive manufacturing techniques. 3D-Hybrid created three new patent-pending tools that allow you to 3D print metal on existing CNC machines using directed electrical, optical and kinetic energy. The line includes the Wire-Arc Additive Manufacturing tool, the Laser Metal Deposition tool, and Cold Spray tool. The Wire-Arc Tool uses dip-transfer technology and proprietary methods for hybrid manufacturing. As the tool is used to build parts in conjunction with subtractive tools that clean it up as its being built. According to the company, the tool is 50x faster than selective laser melting and a more effective option for alloys that are reflective to laser wavelengths. The Laser Tool enables a variety of feedstock options from wire to blending powder materials for gradient and custom alloy generation; and the Cold Spray Tool is a solution for printing alloys with high thermal conductivity. The new tools could have a profound impact on the industry, particularly the aerospace, automotive, oil and gas and industrial sectors, but really it could be of interest to any company with a CNC machine that is contemplating the cost of 3D printers. Hydrofoil Yacht Flies 5-Feet Above the Water About 10 years ago, the Flyak turned heads when the kayak with hydrofoils first lifted out of the water and "flew" above the surface. Once the rider got up to 6 mph, the foils propelled the hull above the surface. I'm surprised that it took ten years, but Enata Marine has taken the technique and applied it to a luxury yacht. The Foiler is a hybrid diesel-electric yacht with a retractable hydrofoil system that lifts the yacht five feet above the water.  According to New Atlas, the Foiler has two 320-hp BMW engines that power a pair of generators used by two electric torpedo engines that drive the boat. Which is important, because the Foiler needs to build up a little more speed before it can fly. The vessel has to reach 19 mph before the foils deploy, but once it is out of the water, it can reach up to 46 mph. The four hydrofoils make for a smoother ride as the yacht cruises through the chop.  This is Engineering By Design with David Mantey.

Researchers Make Robot Cockroach Researchers from the Tokyo Institute of Technology have created a six-legged robot that walks with diverse gaits and postures. For example, the hexapod bot can walk with three legs straight out from its sides, like an ant, or with the legs spread more evenly around the body, like a cockroach. The work is part of an effort to design robots to move more naturally as they navigate environments with uneven surfaces. The researchers developed a new biologically-inspired controller that uses a network of non-linear oscillators which enables a diverse number of postures and gaits using only a few high-level variables. The controller has two levels, a pattern-generator circuit that controls the gait, and six local pattern generators that control the trajectories of the individual legs — each performs tasks  based off of years of previous research. In the past, it has been near impossible to mimic an animal's brain, they're too complex to condense into a pattern generator, which serves as the robot's artificial brain. This simplified brain not only worked, but the robot used gaits that weren't designed into it. It's capable of adapting to the situation. According to the researchers, they have yet to crack how these complex movements are performed by such simple living creatures, but the study could eventually lead to new ways to control multi-legged robots and even a future that uses brain-computer interfaces. Bug Burgers & Dogless Hotdogs SPACE10 is IKEA's innovation lab. This week the lab re-imagined five classic entrees as the fast food of the future. While you won't find it in your local store's anytime soon, we must consider if/when restaurants will add meal-worm burgers and micro-algae buns to the menu. Among the new grub is the Dogless Hotdog, which consists of dried and glazed carrots, beet and berry ketchup, mustard and turmeric cream, roasted onions, cucumber salad and an herb salad mix. Really, it sounds like a decent recipe for a wrap, and even has more protein, but then you realize that they are serving it on a bun made from micro-algae. Sure, it has 50 times more iron than spinach, but also the visual appeal of a moldy vegetable. The Bug Burger is a new take on a slider patty made up of beetroot, parsnip, potatoes and meal-worms; and the Neatball is a new take on IKEA's classic meatballs with two recipes: one made with meal-worms (they must have a large supply of beetle larvae), and the other is made of carrots, parsnips and beets. Really, they just divvied up the Bug Burger's ingredients. They also created a LOKAL Salad, which is both lo-cal, and locally grown. Consisting of ingredients from the hydroponic garden in the test lab's basement, the salads are a mix of microgreens, herbs, and sprouts. The dessert to finish the meal is a microgreen ice cream made using hydroponic herbs and greens. Flavors include fennel, coriander, basil, and mint combined with a base made from apple and lemon juice. 3D Printing Houses for $4,000 Non-profit New Story and construction company Icon have created the first permitted 3D-printed home in the United States. Located in Austin, TX, the home is a proof of concept that can be 3D-printed in 12-24 hours. According to ICON, the home was built using its Vulcan mobile printer prototype for $10,000. The production version of the printer will be able to print a single story, 600-800 square foot home for less than $4,000. The printer was designed to work with little to no waste, as well as in harsh environments, such as places with limited water, power and labor infrastructure. The low cost and sturdy homes could be a viable answer for impoverished people around the globe. It certainly looks sturdier than my old mobile home, a lot less flammable as well. Mobile homes typically cost around $20,000, and some people are downsizing into tiny homes that can run up to $40,000 for a 400 square-foot home. According to New Story, more than one billion people in the world don't have safe shelter. With this new process, construction time and cost could be dramatically reduced, hopefully improving living situations for people around the world. The partnership has plans to print an entire community of homes in El Salvador by 2019, but they are still in need of additional funding. The non-profit is looking for $600k by April 13th to fund the next phase of R&D, and another $400k for the first community of 100 printed homes — that's 100 homes for what some people spend on a single house. The project debuted at SXSW 2018, which could be why they put the book Elon Musk: This Book is About Rockets on top of the stack on the desk. The children's book looks to inspire the next generation of tinkerers and big thinkers, and it just so happens to center around the tech industry's biggest draw. Who knows? Maybe Musk is interested in yet another business venture.   This is Engineering By Design with David Mantey.

Finally, Your Own R2-D2 Researchers have developed a morphing autonomous tricycle personal assistant that they call the CanguRo robot. It got the name because the team says that it resembles a kangaroo when in personal assistant mode. According to Digital Trends, it gets its name from the Italian word for kangaroo, even though it certainly sounds like it's English counterpart as well. Developed by a team from the University of Tokyo and the Future Robotics Technology Center (fuRo) at Chiba Institute of Technology, CanguRo works a lot like R2-D2 in Star Wars. It will follow its master, using AI, it will even talk to you using a series of familiar beeps and chirps, and it can be used as a communication device — no word on whether or not it is a hologram. Using an app, you can even send it to your location. So, if you want to walk home, the robot can follow you and carry your bags, or you can transform into a tricycle and have it carry you to your destination at 6.2 mph. The CanguRo uses image recognition combined with mapping and positioning data for autonomous control, although you can still take control if you wish ... or if your careening into a pothole, you just lean left or right if you want to turn. According to The Japan Times, CanguRo is one of a series of machines that is called RidRoid. The robot is still under development. Next, the researchers are trying to ditch the beeps and chirps and make it talk. Uber Files for Hot-Button Patents Uber is stirring up controversy with a new patent that others have referred to as common sense. According to reports from Motor1 and Motor Authority, the ride-sharing company filed a patent for a new concept that would keep riders out of unsafe areas and let you know if your approaching driver is going to pull up in a beater. The patent, which was filed at the beginning of the year and updated at the end of June, would offer a "safe routing" option. The app would pull information from social and news media as well as publicly available data on violent crime and let the rider choose to take a safer, but possibly longer, route. The passenger would also be able to check out weather, current traffic conditions, and even info on the driver. That info would include the safety of the vehicle, which would be derived from the make, model, year, and health of the car. Some say that this is a way to discriminate against poorer neighborhoods, but you could likely still go through or to the neighborhood, and the trip might even be cheaper since it is shorter. If it's just the option to go around the one street in town with statistically higher rate of your Uber getting plugged by indirect fire, that doesn't sound discriminatory to me. That sounds like common sense. As for the beater meter, you’ll just have to wait for a classier car if you can’t stand anything made before 2017, but it might also incentivize drivers to upgrade their rides when they start missing out on fares. MIT Made a Blind Cheetah Robot Last week, MIT celebrated freedom on the Fourth of July by showing off the Cheetah 3. Cheetah 3 is a new robot from the Biomimetic Robotics Lab that can run 6.7 mph, climb stairs, and even make a nearly 3-foot leap. What's crazy is that it does all of this and more while essentially blind. According to MIT, the 90-lb robot ditched the cameras and instead uses "blind locomotion," like when you're stumbling towards the fridge in the middle of the night for some water. According to the researchers, vision can be loud, inaccurate, and/or unavailable, which can slow down the robot or render it useless. Which would be a problem if, for example, the robot was the WALK-MAN 2.0 and it was trying to save you from a burning building. So, how does the Cheetah 3 blindly walk up staircases and navigate unknown terrain? It has a pair of new algorithms: a contact detection algorithm and a model-predictive control algorithm. The contact detection algorithm tells the Labrador-sized robot if and when it needs to shift it's weight to stay balanced. If one leg steps into a pothole, it tells the other legs how the need to compensate to keep the Cheetah moving forward. The model-predictive control algorithm helps the Cheetah maintain balance when someone kicks it, or as in the tests, jabs at it with a 2x4. It predicts how the robot should compensate to for the force. The robot also has a number of improvements from the Cheetah 2, notably the ability to stretch backwards and forwards, and twist from side to side. this will help prepare it for future roles as a first responder in otherwise inaccessible areas, like one of the many explosions at industrial facilities this week alone.  The researchers will present their findings in October at the International Conference on Intelligent Robots in Madrid. This is Engineering By Design.

Engineering By Design: Flying Car Looks Like a Delorean
 
04:04
Flying Pods Link & Fly from Akka Technologies is a new concept that could make future air travel a little more modular. According to a report from Bloomberg, the French company is pitching Boeing on a system in which the wings detach from the fuselage. According to the company, by separating the cargo box and the wings, airports could improve boarding and deplaning. Company CEO Maurice Ricci says it will be the next big disruption, after electric and autonomous cars. In the concept, passengers would board the pods at a train station by having their retinas scanned. And it would be interesting to see if/how Link & Fly could tie into a hyperloop system. Designed to carry 162 passengers, cargo, or customizable VIP pods, freighter versions could fly autonomously. Bioengineers 3D-Print a Heart Bioengineers from Harvard University have made a working model of a left heart ventricle, and unlike previous work with engineered tissue, the little piece of my heart beat for months in the lab. The heart was made with a nanofiber scaffold seeded with human heart cells. The scaffold was built using pull spinning, and it works as a template that tells the cells where to go. According to the researchers, it could be used in drug testing, and to develop treatments for patients with heart conditions, like an arrhythmia. The researchers have been working on the project for ten years, hoping to one day build a whole, working heart. The idea is to build human heart model with your own stem cells to mirror the features as well as the diseases that your doctors are trying to treat. With this little ventricle, scientists hit it with a drug like adrenaline measure the increase heart rate, and they even poked holes in it to mimic a heart attack, a little heart attack in a petri dish. Maybe one day, the homegrown hearts could be implantable. Flying Car Looks Like a Delorean Urban Aeronautics is an Israel-based company that designed the CityHawk electric vertical-take-off-and-landing aircraft (eVTOL). This week, the company announced that it is taking it's flying car into full-scale development, with flights for the Fancraft coming as early as 2021. The Urban Aeronautics twine engine aircraft can hold up to five passengers and a pilot and travel at speeds up to 168 mph. With a range of 93 miles and a max payload of 1,670 pounds, CityHawk could be used for a fleet of air taxis, emergency services, or as an executive aircraft. The first flights will be as a hybrid aircraft, but the company has plans to convert it to run on hydrogen fuel cells. According to the company, it can't use batteries, because right now, batteries are too heavy, and have a limited life cycle. The plan is to switch to hydrogen sometime in mid-2022. The design holds other advantages over other flying cars and even other VTOLs currently in development. Mainly, it only requires about 1/4 of the footprint that a helicopter needs to land, and it is extremely quiet, about the same as a car passing by. The test vehicle has successfully completed more than 250 test flights, but wonder if they’re still tweaking the design. Because from the side, it really looks like another groundbreaking design. You know, one that only broke the ground when it fell on its face.

Engineering By Design: Hyperloop Reaches 192 MPH in Phase 2 Test
 
05:35
Solar Glasses Power Your Temples Researchers from Karlsrue Institute of Technology have created Solar Glasses that have semitransparent organic solar cells on their lenses that supply electric power to a microprocessor, two displays, and electronics in the temples. Unlike silicon solar cells, organic cells are flexible, transparent, and lightweight. They can be made in many shapes, sizes, and colors, so the team made a set of semitransparent cells that were placed on the lenses. The lenses wound up about 1.6 mm thick, and weighed six grams, which is on par with typical sunglasses. The glasses generate about 400 milliwatts of electric power, so you could plug them in to a hearing aid or pedometer, but they were really meant to serve more as a case study. The tech might be a bit more applicable in an all-glass office building, or perhaps even the smart windows on the Bloon pods. Endoscope Arms Have Tentacle-Inspired Cups Surgeons use flexible endoscopes to perform procedures on difficult-to-reach parts of the body. Hyperloop Reaches 192 MPH A few weeks ago, we witnessed Hyperloop One's Phase One test. They called it their "Kitty Hawk moment." Yesterday, and only 1.5 months after their initial test, the company's Phase 2 blew their previous results out of the water. After the initial test, the company upgraded from a test sled to the XP-1, the company's first-generation pod. On the 500-meter DevLoop test track in the Nevada desert, the XP-1 accelerated for 300 meters, reached 3,151 hp, and topped out at 192 mph. Less than two months ago, the team was falling out of their chairs when they nearly hit 70 mph (69 mph) after accelerating for 30 m and achieving 891 hp. During this test, the pod actually glided above the track using magnetic levitation. According to the company, the test was conducted in a tube depressurized down to the equivalent of air at 200,000 feet above sea level. All system components were successfully tested as well. The team is now at about a third of the average speed, 600 mph, laid out in Elon Musk's Hyperloop Alpha white paper from August 2013, which details a system that would top out at 760 mph. The company is projecting to have three production systems in service and transporting human and cargo pods by 2021.
