Electric, Amphibious ATV From Russia's Green Scout

  Amphibious, All Terrain, All Electric Vehicle Moscow Based Startup Green Scout Moscow based startup Green Scout has developed a fascinating, new electric amphibious vehicle.  It's a 6-wheel, electric, amphibious, all-terrain vehicle (ATV).  The vehicle has all-wheel drive with each wheel having power of 3 kW.  Land speeds are up to 70 km/h or 44 mph.  Water speeds are 3 mph.

Rapid Water Quality Tests from New Drone

Amphibious Pelican Drone from The Netherlands Source:  TU Delft, Pelican Drone in Action This Week Water Testing in Minutes The Pelican amphibious drone is able to deliver water tests in minutes.  This new technology is gamechanging because current water quality testing is time and labor intensive, requires on site visits by humans and then the water samples have to be transported to a lab. The traditional process is expensive and many times the water samples no longer accurately reflect current water conditions, which dynamically change. The Pelican drone provides water quality testing results in real-time. Autonomous and Real Time Water Monitoring A team at Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands has invented the Pelican drone that flies over the water surface and scans it for problem areas with its onboard hyperspectral cameras.  If there's a potential problem, the drone swoops down and takes a water sample.  The sample is transferred to a porta
