Bowling robot ready for the World Robot Olympiad

The only Danish team to qualify for the World Robot Olympiad consists of two engineering students from Aarhus University. They have made a small bowling figure filled with advanced technology hardware. The olympiad takes place in Qatar in early November. Read more (in Danish only) here.

A new form of traffic control can predict the flow of cars via advanced computer simulations and direct each individual motorist in the most appropriate direction, thus avoiding traffic jams. The method can ultimately make the European road network intelligent without notable investments in technological hardware. (Photo: Colourbox)

New technology can reduce traffic jams

Researchers are now taking a new step towards more intelligent traffic management. Individual motorists will reach their destination faster, cheaper and greener. The flow of traffic will be optimally distributed on the roads, and all the coordination will be automatic and wireless via GPS systems in the cars.
