The autonomous vehicle startup has reached a new milestone in its partnership with Walmart by pulling its safety operators from behind the wheel of their self-driving box trucks.
Boeing has expanded its flight-test program of its Airpower Teaming System, a new unmanned ‘Loyal Wingman’ jet to work alongside manned fighter jets. The aircraft will use artificial intelligence to team with existing crewed and uncrewed assets to complement mission capabilities.
