Vision Robotics’ harvesting machines edge closer to the farm

Vision Robotics' harvesting machines edge closer to the farm -

Filed under:

In just eight short months, the automated harvesting machines at Vision Robotics have apparently come quite a ways. Currently, funding is flowing in from growers' associations who are "very nervous about the availability and cost of labor in the near future," which has allowed the company to move forward in developing a pair of robots to pluck fruit from trees or vines. The duo would work in succession as the first robotic "scout" would scan the area and construct a 3D map with the location of each item that needs captured; the "harvester" would follow behind and pick the fruits that its eagle-eyed teammate mapped out. The firm has reportedly reached the build phase on the complex machines, and while a prototype or two should be ready to rock by next year, we're unlikely to see these go mainstream before the next decade.

pyctd 0.4.2 (pyctd branch)

This is a really neat application, however I was not able to get it to run on Debian Testing. I was getting a strange error message after installing "python-ctypes" "libnetfilter-conntrack1" through apt-get: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/pyctd", line 27, in ? import pyctd File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/pyctd/__init__.py", line 2, in ? from pyctd.conntracking import DataCollector File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/pyctd/conntracking.py", line 31, in ? import pynetfilter_conntrack as nfct File "build/bdist.linux-i686/egg/pynetfilter_conntrack/__init__.py", line 4, in ?

800 Break-ins at Dept. of Homeland Security

Wow, this is not cool at all. And to think how much information could already be floating around the internet. "Im in ur Homelands Sekcuritys looking at ur filez".
800 Break-ins at Dept. of Homeland Security - WrongSizeGlass writes "Yahoo is reporting about the computer security nightmare going on at the Department of Homeland Security. Senior DHS officials admitted to Congress that over a two year period there were 800 hacker break-ins, virus outbreaks and in one instance, hacker tools for stealing passwords and other files were found on two internal Homeland Security computer systems. I guess it's true what they say ... a mechanic's car is always the last to get fixed."
