Google may be gearing up to build robots that resemble props in science-fiction movies as the ambitious Internet company expands into yet another technological frontier.
Plant processes, such as painting vehicles, require very pure H20. Typically 25 percent of the water coming into a facility doesn’t make the cut. But by implementing a system called reverse osmosis that separates impurities before the manufacturing process, Toyota has increased usable water from 75 to 90 percent at several of its plants.
Toyota Motor Corp. plans to increase resources including funds and engineers devoted to advanced environmental and safety technologies starting next year even at the cost of reducing such resources for the development of new models, sources close to the matter said Tuesday.
Seventeen humanoid robots will be evaluated Friday and Saturday in a Defense Department competition at Homestead Miami Speedway for how well they can complete tasks including getting into an all-terrain vehicle, driving it and opening doors.
GM is designing cars with 3D printing, Ford is scanning each car for paint imperfections the size of a grain of salt, and everyone is making more models on the same line.
In a workshop at Grand Junction's Business Incubator Center, employees with Apex CAD Products use three-dimensional printers to make an array of items for customers, from models of dental implants and vertebrae for medical professionals to working parts for machines.
The development of the engine cover for the all-new Ford Mustang is the most recent example of the use of this technology. Ford uses 3D printing to quickly produce prototype parts, shaving months off the development time for individual components used in all of its vehicles, such as cylinder heads, intake manifolds and air vents.
New cars and trucks sold in the U.S. last year got an average of 23.6 miles per gallon (10 liters per 100 kilometers) in combined city and highway driving, a record that came mainly through improvements to engines and transmissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

In this inaugural episode of Automotive Insights, sponsored by Omni-ID, we're talking about the growing complexity within the American automotive landscape, from changes within the Big 3, to the revolution of battery-powered cars like the Tesla Model S, and the fact that an increasing amount of American-made cars are now emerging from the Southeastern states, like Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi.
Swedish-based Volvo Car Group has joined the race to develop self-driving cars, saying it plans to build 100 such vehicles in a pilot project. The Chinese-owned automaker said Monday it will test its "autonomous" cars on 30 miles (50 kilometers) of selected roads in the Swedish city of Goteborg, starting in 2017.
The German-built Volocopter VC200, with its 18 rotors, is a VTOL aircraft that aims to offer a calm, quiet and emmission-free ride for two people.
With the Affordable Care Act pushing more long-term treatment to be done at home, and patients demanding an increased level of autonomy when it comes to treating their conditions, many devices that were once only operated by skilled, educated technicians or physicians are now in the hands of relatively inexperienced patients.
R&D activities need to be intimately linked to a company product strategy. This will lay out the future customer changes and needs, when these are likely to occur, and highlight what technologies are coming along that may provide breakthroughs.
“Tight tolerance” is a term that is often tossed around loosely in the industry—however, if tight tolerance is not done correctly, parts and products will underperform or possibly fail, resulting in customer dissatisfaction and a tooling and/or process overhaul.
Different manufacturing businesses face different business challenges depending on product sets, competitive dynamics, supply chains and customer trends in a given market. But when it comes to reducing the costs of existing products, they share some very similar challenges.
