At the time, Hamburg, Germany, was chosen as the site for testing technologies of the so-called "smart" roads. The port authority of Hamburg, together with the specialists of Cisco company, has made the construction of Europe's first footage of "smart" roads. The construction of this site, which is located in the immediate vicinity of the docks, took four months, and the operation of this road was begun in may 2015.

Currently research astronomers discovered about two thousand exoplanets and of this number only ten planets have been discovered through direct observation. The difficulty of this method of detecting planets because they reflect light too weak in relation to the light of the stars they orbit these planets. But astronomical instrument, specially designed for carrying out a direct search for exoplanets, facilitates this process by blocking the light of stars using several different technologies. And recently with the help of this tool, which has the name Gemini Planet Imager (GPI), scientists from Stanford University have found a new planet, located at the distance of 100 light years from the Solar system. This planet is similar to Jupiter and is rich in...

Charles Darwin probably did not expect that the basic principles of his theory of evolution may have some relation to the cars. However, researchers from the University of Cambridge, London, and Swiss Federal Institute of technology (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, ETH) in Zurich have demonstrated that evolutionary processes can influence the development of robots is exactly the same as on the development of living beings. Created these robot scientists independently make small robots-children, constantly improving their skills and passing on to the next generation of robots only positive features of the previous generation.

Creating a humanoid robot that is as quick and agile as a man, is a challenge given the level of development of modern robotic technology, which is very clearly demonstrated in the first round and in the finals DARPA Robotics Challenge. Taking this into account, researchers from mit have developed a robot that acts more as a kind of puppet, repeating the motion and relying on speed, agility, reaction and reflexes of the human operator.

On pages of our site we have already talked about the German company Liebherr, since 1949, engaged in the development and manufacture heavy lifting equipment. A few years ago, in 2012, the company produced an impressive demonstration of the capabilities of their technology, which we, unfortunately, for some reason spared. But now we will try to fill this gap, and present to our readers the video, which you can see how small the crane (which in itself is already large enough mechanism) was raised by a big crane, which was lifted by a huge crane and which, in turn, was raised the largest and most powerful self-propelled crane today.

Roman Schnabel (Roman Schnabel, Professor from the Institute for gravitational physics max Planck, Germany, and his research group are planning to soon carry out an experiment in which you will attempt to create the phenomenon of quantum entanglement between two rather large and massive objects. The experiment was preceded by a fairly long period of theoretical research, but now scientists are developing the methodology of the pilot. As for obfuscation will be performing two mirrors, weighing 100 grams each, and if the experiment is successful, it will allow scientists to learn much more about complexity than experiments that use tiny objects with maximum dimensions of a few microns.

Some time ago the realm of virtual reality was something from the category of science fiction. However, the enormous pace of development of all kinds of information and other technologies has caused a huge breakthrough, as manifested in the creation of a number of virtual reality. However, further advance these technologies to a broad consumer market hinder the same, and for this reason is not very great popularity of three-dimensional cinema - humans suffer from headaches and analog motion sickness. However, in the near future, this situation may improve with researchers from Stanford University have developed a new and more realistic way of giving people virtual reality environment.

An international group of scientists-astronomers, led by scientists from the International centre for radio astronomy research (International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research ICRAR), Western Australia, with seven of the most powerful telescopes in the world has made surveillance more than 200 thousands of galaxies. These observations, made in 21 different range of electromagnetic waves, from far UV to far infrared rays, showed that in the depths of galaxies that exist at the present time, produced exactly two times less energy than in the depths of galaxies that existed 2 billion years ago. And is reducing the amount of energy indicates that the Universe is in the process of her slow and inevitable "extinction".

Graphene is one of the most promising materials of modernity, which many scientists and engineers are trying to use to create a variety of electronic devices for the next generation. We have already seen the smallest in the world of graphene "incandescent bulb", high-efficiency solar cells, flexible displays, transistors with excellent characteristics, and many other interesting and unusual things. However, in all these cases, the graphene was used in its natural form, the form of the carbon sheet having a thickness of one atom.

According to new research one of the most powerful cosmic disasters, explosions ever observed by scientists-astronomers, driven by massive cosmic objects with incredibly strong magnetic field. Gamma explosions (Gamma-Ray Bursts, GRBS) are intense flashes of high-energy x-ray radiation, registered by astronomers in various parts of the Universe. They are the most powerful high-energy events that result in a short time, from milliseconds to several seconds, erupting into space the energy equivalent to the energy emitted by the Sun in 10 billion years.

Students from Laval University (Universite Laval), québec, Canada became the winners of the 36th international competition of SAE Supermileage, which is attended by the most economical auto mobiles in the world. Second consecutive win in this competition for canadian students brought their auto mobile, which has demonstrated fuel efficiency 2098 miles per gallon (0.11 liters per 100 kilometers).

About three years ago, researchers from the Swiss Federal Polytechnic University of Lausanne (Swiss Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, EPFL) announced its plans to build a spacecraft designed to collect debris and throwing it towards the Ground where it needs to burn completely, entering the dense layers of the atmosphere. Initially this spacecraft, called CleanSpace One, had to be equipped with a manipulator with a tenacious acute seizures. But the implementation of such node was technically extremely complex and was developed by the alternative design unfolding the conical network that the device will "catch" part of space debris.

For the First time the concept of a holographic image appeared in 1893 in the novel of Jules Verne's "Castle in the Carpathians". Later, this subject developed by other writers, and dynamic holograms have become an indispensable attribute of any sci-Fi works, Hey Obi-WAN, the last hope Princess Leia. And only recently due to the level of development of modern technologies began to appear holographic projectors and installation, to translate into reality the dreams of science fiction. One of such embodiments is the installation of lasers, mirrors and cameras, developed by experts of Digital Nature Group (DNG), which is capable of reproducing three-dimensional interactive holographic images composed of tiny dots of light, so-called voxels (voxels).

Returning to Earth, the capsule spacecraft entering the atmosphere at speeds at least five times the speed of sound. At this point, around the capsule arises sheath of superheated ionized plasma, which completely blocks the radio for a few minutes, which are especially critical of all time, spending on procedure return. This problem plagued space agencies of all countries for many decades, but researchers from the Institute of Technology Harbin (Harbin Institute of Technology), China, has developed a new method, which will allow for sustained contact with the spacecraft all the time through the use of plasma resonance.

In the plans of the American space Agency NASA is sending to Mars the first manned expedition and on terms that should occur in the middle or towards the end of 2030-ies. But today, two decades before the first astronauts-pioneers will travel to the red Planet, NASA is beginning to address the selection of a suitable landing place. The selection process will begin with a special meeting that will be held in Houston and with participation of leading scientists of the planetary community, which will offer their options and become parties to heated discussions.
