Virtual laboratory: Fast, flexible and exact

18 July 2017 - 5:52am
During the forming process, sheet metal materials are often stressed to their limits. Computer simulations are used to test how far it is possible to go in production. However, the simulation is only ever as exact as the data on which it is based. Scientists have now developed a virtual test laboratory that allows them to examine different load states for metal materials and determine precise mechanical data.

Self-driving cars may soon be able to make moral and ethical decisions as humans do

5 July 2017 - 9:32am
A ground-breaking new study challenges the assumption that moral decisions are strongly context dependent and cannot be modeled or described algorithmically, finding that human behavior in dilemma situations can be modeled by a simple value-of-life-based model. The research suggests that human moral behavior can be well-described by algorithms and used by machines to manage moral dilemmas on the road.

Tracking humans in 3D with off-the-shelf webcams

5 July 2017 - 8:33am
Whether it's for computer games, motion analysis in sports, or even medical examinations, many applications require that people and their movements are captured digitally in 3D in real-time. Until now, this was possible only with expensive systems of several cameras, or by having people wear special suits. Computer scientists have now developed a system that requires only a single video camera. It can even estimate the 3D pose of a person acting in a pre-recorded video, for instance a YouTube video.
