“FEDOR demonstrated his abilities to shoot from both hands……to set priorities instantly and make decisions.”-Dmitry Rogozin, Deputy Prime Minister of Russia

The humanoid Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research robot has been learning a lot, the latest thing is how to use a pistol, with both hands at the same time.

In the video FEDOR gunslinger is at the end, after the robot tanks:

Reminds me of the MGM movie Westworld.  

So far it can open doors, turn on lights and drive cars.  Eventually FEDOR will be used to pilot Russian space flights by 2021.

It’s being developed by Android Technics and Russia’s Emergencies’ Ministry Advanced Research Fund.

Self Drive Car Fail! Human drivers unable to regain control from robot driver?

“If someone is designing a method for automated vehicle handover, there will need to be detailed research on that specific method. This study is tip of an iceberg.”-Lene Harbott, Revs Program at Stanford

A new study published by the new Science Robotics journal says self driving cars don’t like being turned off!

The article titled Motor learning affects car-to-driver handover in automated vehicles, presented the results of the Dynamic Design Lab study at California’s Stanford University.  The study showed that differences between human’s explicit and implicit thinking actually made it difficult to take control of a car that has been under total computer control: “…there is this physical change and we need to acknowledge that people’s performance might not be at its peak if they haven’t actively been participating in the driving.”-Holly Russell, Dynamic Design Lab
