Robot 'Thinks' Like a Honey Bee
Blog 10/9/2012 16 comments Scientists in the UK are working on the creation of artificial intelligence to power a flying robot that can autonomously think like a honey bee, rather than be programmed to perform tasks.
A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
