No, G. M.’s plan is not to shortchange buyers, though simply to let them equivocate shopping what they already own. Today, job home is frequency finished on a phone built into a dashboard, and accessible song is reduction mostly stored on CDs tangled into a glove box; increasingly, a smartphone in a driver’s slot serves both needs.

So G. M.’s newest proceed is a elemental change in truth from a use of embedding such record in a guts of a car. Instead, it will offer an inexpensive couple that lets drivers control their phone — and some-more important, a apps — regulating a dashboard hold screen.

Besides improving a robot's navigational abilities, the development could lead to self perception. Robots will soon be able to feel heat or gentle touching on their surfaces, thanks to scientists at the Technical University Munich (Technische Universität München, TUM). The researchers are now developing small hexagonal plates that when joined together form a sensitive skin for “intelligent machines.” The work has the potential to not only help robots better navigate within their environments, it may also enable robot self-perception, the group claims in a prepared statement. A single robotic arm has already been partially equipped with sensors, proving the concept works.


An obvious point of comparison for the work is human skin, which is a communicative wonder. The nerves in our skin convey temperature, pressure, shear forces and vibrations – from the finest breath of air to touch or pain sensations. At the same time, the skin is the organ by which we set ourselves apart from our environment and distinguish between environment and body.
