Toyota FT-EV II – Electric Car – Zero Emissions

Toyota has issued a new concept for the car FT-EV II. Perhaps if we look at the interior, we expect to see a car that is modified by a lover of steam engines. A steering wheel is made not as usual. Without using the pedal, steering wheel controls the movement of the vehicle.

But unfortunately this car is not designed for long journeys, which means that will be visible in the buildings or just large companies. Running on lithium-ion batteries, the vehicle is capable of taking passengers a distance of 90 kilometers on a single charge. Top speed is 100 km/h, which is just enough to stay in the slow lanes on the freeway.

Project Aiko

Setelah sekian lama Honda Motor Co. mengeluarkan versi robot yang simple dan ringan yang diberi nama ASIMO, robot yang dapat berjalan seperti manusia dan dapat membantu pekerjaan-pekerjaan ringan seperti pekerjaan rumah tangga, dll. Pada bulan November 2007 ini telah dikenalkan versi robot yang beberapa langkah lebih maju lagi di Ontario Science Center dan di HobbyShow International Center, yang dinamakan Project Aiko.

Project Aiko adalah Android wanita versi terbaru (Android versi pertama adalah Actroid yang dikenalkan pada tahun 2005), yang diciptakan oleh Le Trung (seorang ilmuwan dari York University), yang telah mendesain hardware dan software untuk project tersebut. Aiko diambil dari bahasa Jepang (Ai = love / cinta) dan (ko = child / anak).

Project Aiko menggunakan Bio Robot Artificial Intelligence Neural System (B.R.A.I.N.S) yang dapat menggabungkan dynamic hardware dan software untuk mengekspresikan kebiasaan manusia, seperti berbicara, mengenali suara, wajah, mengekspresikan rasa sakit, membersihkan lantai, kaca, kemampuan untuk belajar, dll. Tetapi dengan teknologi yang ada pada saat ini, masih belum memungkinkan untuk dapat membuatnya ‘menyamai’ manusia.

Walau belum bisa ‘menyamai’ manusia secara keseluruhan (terutama pada ekspresi wajah), tetapi Android ini sudah beberapa langkah untuk mendekati itu, dan terus dikembangkan… lalu, apakah di masa yang akan datang akan dapat diciptakan Android yang benar-benar menyerupai manusia (seperti di film-film 🙂 ) ? …mungkin saja…
