    Autonomous driving systems must perform many and complex functions at once, including real-time monitoring and recognition of the road and its environs from video feeds and LIDAR(Note 1) information, and plan an appropriate course. Many autonomous vehicles now under development handle this computational complexity with high-end PCs(Note 2). Replacing such PCs with much more cost-effective dedicated processors that consume less power is vital for progress in autonomous driving.more...

    Among Mother Nature’s many wonders, Toshiba researchers focused on photosynthesis -- a process used by plants and other organisms to convert light energy into chemical energy that can later be released to fuel the organisms' activities (energy transformation). In other words, plants are able to synthesize food directly from carbon dioxide and water using energy from light. Learning from this system, Toshiba researchers created a novel way to convert carbon dioxide into ethylene glycol.more...

    Power devices are essential in controlling electrical power used in all sorts of devices from electrical vehicles (EVs) to railroads to elevators. However when converting power from DC to AC there is substantial energy loss which can result in more generation needed and potentially more GHG emissions depending on the energy source. Also renewable energy sources such as solar and wind is typically creating DC power which needs to be converted to AC before use, again there is energy loss in thismore...

    Despite the fact that hydrogen ranks as the cleanest fuel possible—as a source of electricity its only byproducts are water and heat—its use as a fuel for electricity generation remains nominal. This is because hydrogen’s power has been difficult to leverage: it has the highest amount of energy per weight, but the least amount of energy by volume. Moreover, 95% of the hydrogen produced in the US, which is used almost exclusively for industrial purposes, comes from natural gas, and a largemore...

    Since the recent US election there’s been a lot of talk in the media and on financial news programs about the upcoming boom in infrastructure construction. There is no denying that a significant investment in US infrastructure is needed.more...
