2021-11-14T20:38:20-05:00Categories: Psionic Research + White Papers|Tags: , , , |

White Paper: Overcoming Issues in Precise Navigational Methods Dr. Donald R. Erbschloe recently released a white paper on navigational methods which is available from Psionic in two formats: an excerpt publication (immediate download) or full white paper (request). Abstract (Full Version) Measurement of position to within a few centimeters is readily available today, allowing unprecedented precision in navigation. This has been made possible through numerous improvements in methods and technology. The tools we employ and the way we use them have inherent errors and vulnerabilities, which jeopardize surety. The variety of [ READ MORE ]

Technology Developed for Lunar Landings Makes Self-Driving Cars Safer on Earth [NASA] September 18, 2020, NASA > NASA is advancing a laser-based technology designed to help spacecraft land on a proverbial dime for missions to the Moon and Mars. The technology will undergo testing on upcoming suborbital rocket launches with Blue Origin on its New Shepard rocket and ride to the Moon on several commercial landers as part of the Artemis program. Simultaneously, companies are using the technology to help self-driving cars navigate rush hour traffic on this planet. NASA engineers are designing an approach to safely manage multiple trips [ READ MORE ]

How Technology is Driving the Democratization of ADAS [Industry Week]

2021-12-07T18:43:16-05:00Categories: Industry News|Tags: , |

How Technology is Driving the Democratization of ADAS [Industry Week] March 17, 2020 By Murray Slovick Today's ADAS (advanced driver-assistance systems) functions do more than reduce the risk of injuries during a crash. Many features, such as autonomous braking, collision avoidance, and the ability of a vehicle to determine whether a lane change is possible, are designed to help avoid accidents altogether. … Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) is a sensing method that detects objects and maps their distances. The technology works by illuminating a target with a laser pulse and measures the characteristics of the reflected return signal, helping [ READ MORE ]

Stamp-Size Gravity Meter Could Have Big Impact On Oil Exploration [IEEE Spectrum]

2021-12-07T18:49:53-05:00Categories: Industry News|Tags: , |

Stamp-Size Gravity Meter Could Have Big Impact On Oil Exploration A silicon MEMS device that accurately measures gravity could make geophysical surveys easier, cheaper, and safer 30 March 2016 | Prachi Patel To find buried oil reserves, surveyors have for decades used gravity meters, or gravimeters, along with other instruments. Gravimeters are hypersensitive versions of accelerometers: They measure extremely tiny changes in the acceleration due to gravity. These nanoscale changes can happen because of the presence of subterranean geological features like oil wells. The best gravimeters in use today are the size of a shopping basket, weigh a few kilograms, [ READ MORE ]
