The patent looks at how flashing lights and signs on the outside of self-driving cars might tell pedestrians what is happening. techxplore.com/news/2018-…
An electromotive force is the electrical action produced by a non-electrical source. A device that converts other forms of energy into electrical energy (a "transducer"), such as a battery (converting chemical energy) or generator (converting mechanical energy), provides an EMF as its output. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ele…
NASA’s Apollo bought almost all the output of IC chips in the early 60’s, driving reliability and capacity improvements. If one chip failed one test, 1000 chip lot was rejected. Moore wrote his Law during this program. fastcompany.com/90362753/…
