New partner announcement: DAV Network

New partner announcement: DAV Network

Blockchain-based transportation protocol that aims to revolutionize the very concept of autonomous vehicles.

Dav Alliance

Global Robot Expo proudly announces the collaboration with DAV Network, a blockchain-based transportation protocol that aims to revolutionize the very concept of autonomous vehicles. Backed by big companies like GM, IBM, Ford, Google or NASA, DAV Network is building a Global Transportation Network for Land, Sea and Air vehicles with blockchain technology behind.

 

Imagine a world where autonomous drones with artificial intelligence are able to communicate with each other and service providers for deliveries, charging or maintenance; where sea carriers can navigate to their destination and be paid autonomously, or where your car will work in a autonomous way after leaving you at your work earning money for you instead of being just parked. This can be seen as something from the future but DAV Network is working to make it happen today.

The blockchain technology allows a completely decentralized system where no middleman is controlling the network, it also allows a smart payment management in the vehicles itself that will provide the means for a truly autonomous network of vehicles taking smart decisions of whether accept a work or recharge themselves with an economic perspective. The technology behind the DAV Network is open-source software and open-source hardware, ensuring that everyone will be able to develop a tailored solution to their needs.

 

In Global Robot Expo we believe in a autonomous network of vehicles driven by artificial intelligence and we couldn’t be happier to be partners of the DAV Network and help them to share the knowledge and build together a better future.

Drone Regulation changes in Spain: urban areas & night flights

Drone regulation in Spain: urban areas & night flights

Drones y Espacio aéreo compartido

The 15th of December 2017 the Spanish Government approved the new regulation on drones. From now on it will be allowed to fly in urban areas and over crowds of people, upon approval of AESA (Spanish Aerospace Security Agency). The drone technology is constantly improving and is being implemented in different fields. That is why it is necessary to incorporate regulations to expand the number of environments where it is possible to fly UAVs.

The potential and responsibility of Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence GR-EX

The concept of “artificial intelligence” was introduced in 1956 to define the possibility of implementing reasoning and self-learning capabilities into robotic system. It is not necessary to go to utopian visions of science fiction to confirm that Industry 4.0, the so-called fourth industrial revolution, has already begun to transform production systems through smart technologies’ platforms.

Examples of applications of Artificial Intelligence

Chatbots are systems capable of interacting with humans

that function as virtual assistants. Surely you know Siri. Chatbots can be used as assistants during purchase processes, for educational projects or as pre-filters to refer queries to human advisors. The uses at our disposal are infinite, increasingly sophisticated and personalized, aiming to recreate human-like communication.
