WayRay Holograktor Is A Ride-Hailing Car For The Metaverse Which Can Be Driven Remotely

WayRay, a deep-tech automotive supplier company based in Zurich, Switzerland, launched their first concept car, incorporating their holographic True AR (augmented reality) glazing technology. The WayRay Holograktor is dubbed as a “Metaverse” device on wheels, envisioning the future of ride-hailing with the options of being driven conventionally or remotely.

Starting from the exterior design, the Holograktor is a five-door hatchback with surfacing inspired by Russian constructivism. The triangular, prism-like forms are a nod to the Russian background of both the CEO,…

How is AI impacting the automotive industry?

Credit: cono0430/ShutterstockAI or artificial intelligence – as an abstract concept – conjures up multiple images, in part because it has been so loved by science fiction writers and film makers over many years. It certainly wasn’t all good, was it? In my mind, straight off the bat, there’s the unnerving and ultimately misfiring HAL from Stanley Kubrik’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’. Or there’s ‘The Terminator’and the dystopian future where the machines have taken control of…

AI & Automotive — 8 Disruptive Use-Cases

A driverless car running on roads may sound like a screen taken from a sci-fi movie. However, fiction is turning into reality, and we thank Artificial Intelligence (AI) for the same. AI technology complements the very concept of self-driving cars.

Elon Musk had predicted in 2017 that all the cars will be autonomous in 10 years without any steering wheel. We are quite close to bringing this prediction into reality in just a short time frame of 4…

Putting an Afterburner on an Electric Ducted Fan

Afterburners are commonly agreed to be the coolest feature of military fighter aircraft. Injecting raw fuel into the exhaust stream of a jet engine, afterburners are responsible for that red-hot flaming exhaust and the key to many aircraft achieving supersonic flight. [Integza] wanted to see if the same concept could be applied to an electric ducted fan, and set out to find out.

Of course, building an afterburner for an EDF does add a lot of complication. A flame tube was installed downstream of the EDF, fitted with a brass tube drilled carefully to act as a fuel injector. The flame tube was also fitted with an automotive glow plug in order to ignite the fuel, which was lighter refill gas straight from a can. The whole assembly is wrapped up inside a clear acrylic tube that allows one to easily see what’s happening inside with the combustion.


Tesla Door Handle Improvements

Automotive engineer and former Tesla employee [SuperfastMatt] takes at look at the notorious Tesla door handle design and how it’s changed over the years (see the video below the break). The original handle design consisted of many moving parts, switches and wires which were prone to failure.  Strictly speaking, the door handle is located on the outside of the car’s interior. While it’s sheltered from direct exposure to the elements, it still experiences the extremes of temperature, humidity, and condensation. The handles were so prone to failure that a cottage industry sprang up to provide improved parts and replacements.

Tesla made various improvements over the years, culminating in the latest version which [Matt] reviews in this video.


Introduction to Automated Machine Learning

What Are AutoML Systems?

Machine learning (ML) – as a subfield of the broader domain of Artificial Intelligence (AI) – is taking over all kinds of industries and business domains. This includes retail, healthcare, automotive, finance, entertainment, and more. With this wider adoption across all kinds of operations and by a workforce with a diverse set of skills, learning how to work with machine learning is becoming increasingly important.

Due to this expansion of ML usage by the ever-increasing cross-section of employees in an organization, it has become critical to develop systems that can be used by business professionals of all sorts of backgrounds. And that means these systems cannot exclusively be coding or programming oriented like the ones used by software engineers or data scientists.

3 Questions with BlackBerry’s Director of Data Science

David Relyea is smart (Bachelor of Science from Caltech and a doctorate in physics from Princeton), and that’s a good thing for the security of our electronic devices. As director of data science at BlackBerry, he’s part of a team at the Irvine-based company that provides organizations with software that uses artificial intelligence to stop cybersecurity threats. This software is now used by all G7 nations, all leading commercial banks and nine of the top 10 automotive manufacturers. We asked him three questions:

What’s the future of cybersecurity?

Today’s cybersecurity threats are vast and incredibly smart, many employing artificial intelligence themselves in a weaponized form. When it comes to preventing these, AI will likely become the heart of most solutions to thwart rapid and new cyberattacks.


How computer vision works — and why it’s plagued by bias

It’s no secret that  is everywhere, yet it’s not always clear when we’re interacting with it, let alone which specific techniques are at play. But one subset is easy to recognize: If the experience is intelligent and involves photos or videos, or is visual in any way, computer vision is likely working behind the scenes.

Computer vision is a subfield of , specifically of . If allows machines to “think,” then computer vision is what allows them to “see.” More technically, it enables machines to recognize, make sense of, and respond to visual information like photos, videos, and other visual inputs.

Over the last few years, computer vision has become a major driver of .


Light Bulb Plant Propagation Station Is A Bright Idea

We’ve always enjoyed having a few indoor plants around the Hackaday dungeon because they just make the days more cheerful. Apparently there’s a big craze for them right now, which has led to price increases of things like propagation stations — places where cuttings from mature plants go to grow a root system before getting planted in dirt. Many plants will root readily in water, and it’s better for them to start out this way because soil can come with a bunch of problems.

This goes really well with the older craze of Edison-style light bulbs. We’re glad we never bothered with those because [JGJMatt] says they don’t last long at all. The bulbs themselves are really nice looking, so [JGJMatt] decided to turn a few of them into hanging water propagation stations.


How To Modify Your Car Stereo for Bluetooth or Aux-In

If you’re an automotive enthusiast of taste, you can’t stand the idea of fitting a janky aftermarket stereo into your nice, clean ride. Flashy, modern head units can spoil the look of a car’s interior, particularly if the car is a retro, classic, or vintage ride.
Thus, we’re going to look at how to modify your existing stock car stereo to accept an auxiliary cable input or even a Bluetooth module. This way, you can pump in the latest tunes from your smartphone without a fuss, while still maintaining an all-original look on the dash.
A simple Bluetooth module designed for wiring into car audio systems. There are two wires for 12 V power from the vehicle, and the audio signal is sent out over the RCA plugs. The RCA plugs can be cut off and the module hard wired inside your stereo if you have room.… Read more...
