ARB (Advanced Research Projects Agency) and its partners at NASA and other institutions have identified a new kind of technology that could be used to power future cars.
The technology, called “ARB,” is the brainchild of engineers at NASA’s Johnson Space Center, and it’s a kind of “neural lace,” said Michael Tormey, director of the Johnson Space Institute’s Center for Neural Engineering.
That’s the kind of lace that’s used in traditional sewing machines and knitting machines.
The neural lace has the potential to enable a vehicle to self-heal, he said.
The goal is to develop the technology into a commercial product and eventually into a fully autonomous vehicle that can operate autonomously.
The technology is based on a neural lace made by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology that is used to build flexible circuits.
The DARPA-funded work will build on work that Tormy’s lab has been working on for the past decade.
In 2010, DARPA awarded Tormes lab a $2.5 million grant for its research on how to build a neural cable that would allow cars to self repair and heal.
DARPA then asked for more research and a design for the neural lace to be produced by the company, which ultimately won the grant.
DARP says that project is now in its “early stages,” but Tormys lab has already built a version of the neural cable and is using it in its own vehicle.
This time, DARP is also using the $2 million grant to support the development of a new type of technology called the “driver-assistance system.”
The DARPS-funded driver-assistant system is a sort of hybrid that combines the human brain and sensors that track the vehicle.
In its current form, it uses sensors that are mounted on the driver’s seat to detect when a vehicle’s driver is in control of the vehicle and automatically disengages the vehicle’s brakes and brakes pedals.
The system can also monitor the car’s speed and throttle.
The driver-assisted systems, known as “driver assistance systems” or DASs, are also being tested in the field, but DARPA says that they have yet to receive any government funding.
Tormy said that the DAS concept is being used to test the neural-lacing technology at NASA.
DARPS will be the one to take over for DARPA in a new DARPA program, called the Next Generation Human-Computer Interaction (NCI), to develop driver-related products and technologies.
The new program will be focused on the design and development of DAS systems, he added.
Tromey is excited about the potential of the DARPA grant, saying that DARPS has already shown it can do some very important work.
He said that DARPA is making it a priority to use this grant to continue its work on the neural interface and driver-as-intelligent-systems.DARPA is using the new grant to test DAS technology in the car industry.
The goal is for the technology to be integrated into future vehicles and to be used in all future autonomous vehicles.
Tremey said that while the technology is in its early stages, it’s clear that the technology will be able to be implemented into a future vehicle and that there are several important steps to be taken.
DARPs goal is not to develop an autonomous vehicle right now, he stressed, but rather to develop DAS that can be used as an intelligent driver assist system.
