Will Uber Food Delivery Drones Be As Problematic As Their Self-Driving Vehicles?

Will Uber Food Delivery Drones Be As Problematic As Their Self-Driving Vehicles? By B.N. Frank It wasn’t that long ago that a self-driving Uber killed an Arizona pedestrian.  More recently a whistleblower reported that the company’s automated vehicles still weren’t safe – despite Uber’s claims that they were.  Of course, experts and studies continue to warn that ALL automated vehicles are NOT safe (see 1, 2, 3).

RoboBee Insect Drone Does Not Need a Power Source to Take Flight for Surveillance By Nicholas West For many years we have been discussing the arrival of drones that are designed to mimic nature.  The concept of insect drones, however, dates back much further into the 1970s when a dragonfly drone was created by the CIA. Curiously enough, the dragonfly structure was, at the time, thought to be more efficient than the bumblebee drone they had been working on.  As stated by IEEE Spectrum, In the 1970s the CIA had…
