New self-driving scooter
The KickScooter T60 is a new self-driving scooter that was introduced in China to drive itself to a charging station. Most countries are falling behind with the new technology, having to gather their scooters around the town every night for them to be charged. However, this new idea prevents all that work as it uses AI to navigate its way back to the charging stations without a person. https://www.theverge.com/2019/8/16/20809002/segway-ninebot-electric-scooter-self-driving-uber-lyft-charging-station

Attaching Fitbits to Port Jackson Sharks to observe their behaviour
A group of scientists has just discovered how modern technology can be used to study sharks out in the open. The researchers wanted to gain an understanding of shark behaviour and their whereabouts in order to reduce the amount and risk of human-shark interactions. Now, Macquarie scientist Julianna Kadar has just found the best method of using tagging technology to do just that. The researchers gathered Port Jackson sharks from the wild and attached a Fitbit like device ? acoustic accelerometers ? on the sharks to monitor their movements. The data collected by this new technology has since confirmed new information about the breed. https://lighthouse.mq.edu.au/article/august-2019/fitbits-throw-light-on-secret-lives-of-sharks

Fighting motion sickness using AI
ZF, a German supplier of car parts is working on advanced technology that will make someone less likely to feel sick on long journeys. Rather than curing the motion sickness, the purpose is teaching your car how to drive and avoid it. By analysing the correlation between motion sickness and the dynamics of the moving vehicle, the technology is intended to also store preferred driving styles of each passenger in order to prevent any triggers to feeling sick. ZF is wanting to reduce the feeling of motion sickness and discomfort ? including dizziness, headaches and nausea. https://www.just-auto.com/news/zf-teams-with-scientists-to-combat-motion-sickness_id190113.aspx
