World’s Smallest Car Race

World’s Smallest Car Race


In April 2017, six teams of scientists from all over the world came together for the world’s smallest car race. Teams had to use state of the art electron microscopes to guide their cars on a track hundred times thinner than a strand of hair and even if the distance was so small
the whole race took 30 hours… But what is the purpose of this race and what is a nanocar? My name is Remy Pawlak and I was one of the pilot of the Swiss nano dragster during the first international nanocar race. So the idea is to use an organic
molecule that you synthesize that you adsorb on the surface and then
you have to move the molecule this is what makes your molecule a car in
principle It’s a race you know, you go to win in principle. It’s a bit egocentric, you want to win, you just want
to be fast, good having a good concept of car but at the end you realize
that, well we are all motivated by the same that is to show what we are actually doing and
this was quite beneficial it’s not because we are small that we
are really efficient we’re actually extremely inefficient so the amount of
energy we give to this molecule is lost into the surface and here we have to
think about how to actually optimize this how to transfer correctly the energy we
give, these electrons to the molecule into the motion because most of it is lost into
the surface Hi, my name is Chris Wilmer and my research group is the hypothetical materials lab and we focus on computational studies of different
materials it’s my sense that designing better nanocars today is at least 50% art and 50% science and that a lot of the science right now really just is being used in terms of how to build a nanocar and not why it should have one
design versus another so I think computational modeling, atomistic simulations can play a huge role in helping people figure out what kind of
car they should build yeah I think there are a lot of
technologies that when people begin working on them their utility is not obvious the invention of the airplane was not only met with skepticism in the form of it can’t be done but there were countless number of people who said that it shouldn’t be done or it’s pointless to do there is some quote about you know if humans we were meant to fly, God would have given us wings but all that
sounds so silly and I think that you know in the far future where we can
easily design molecular machines to do useful work for us no one’s going to
question that that’s silly and something like organizing a race
around the nanocar creates some focus for people to demonstrate that
they can make non arbitrary changes to small molecules to impart some simple
function

  1. Abi öyle bi cool konuşuyorsun ki kıskandım. Başarılar diliyorum!!

  2. Projede başarılar, çok profesyonel olduğumu söyleyemem ama elimden geldiği kadar websitesi hakkında veya ihtiyacınız olan bir konuda seve seve yardımcı olmak isterim.

  3. Abi turkce konusun lutfen veya alt yazi eklesen

  4. çok güzel ama ingilizce böyle dinlemesi iyi ama nediyor bilmiyorumki

  5. Bu tür konuları türkçe yaparsan daha çok insanın ilgisini cekebilir bence ama sen bilirsin

  6. How they can move the car on nano plane? They say those techniques are so inefficient and needs to improve.
    I just wonder, and I want to know about these subjects more specifically. Could you help me at sometime 🙂

  7. Kutay bey barış Özcan’ın videosundan geliyorum bu süreçte video çekiminde editinde yardımcı olmak isteyenler buradan iletişime geçsin deniliyordu acaba nasıl görüşebiliriz ?

  8. Will be programming video series about your program that we can design nano car ? How can we improve that ?

  9. Barış Abi Sağ Olsun 🙂 Abone Olun Arkadaşlar…

  10. Hello from Azerbaijan

  11. Baris Ozcandan gelenler 😉

  12. Barış Özcandan geldik

  13. Mükemmel bir alan, mükemmel bir insan. Bilim ve sanatın bu harmanlanmasında en ufak katkımızın olabileceği yerde dahi destek oluruz. Her zaman durmadan, son gaz ilerlemen dileğiyle

  14. hi. you are dealing with great staffs i think. i will make my friends informed about the race and i will try to convince them to join it. i believe it will be so challenging and fun at the same time. i cant wait for it :). btw, if you need some assistance about sth like design or anything, pls ask me i may help you.

  15. program 32 bit indirdim ama ne yapacağımı bilmiyorum yardımcı olur musunuz

  16. SİZE NEREDEN İLETİŞİME GEÇEBİLİRİM YAZILIMI İNDİRDİM ÜCRETLİ ÜCRETİ NE KADAR BİLGİLENDİRİRSENİZ SEVİNİRİM

  17. ABİ BU KANAL BÜYÜYÜNCE BİZİ UNUTMA

  18. Dostum websitesi vs konusunda yardımcı olabilirim [email protected]

  19. 100.like helal olsun haha

  20. interesting work area, there should be increase number of studying upon nanocars in academics

  21. Abi kanalın gözükmüyor barış abiye söyle link koysun bişey yapsın bir saattir arıyorum anca buldum kanalını
    ….

  22. Oldukça güzel bir iş😊

  23. Barış özcan

  24. KBS KUTAY YAZDIM ÇIKTI

  25. Formula Nano nun discord sunucusu (sorularınıza yanıt bulmak için ve proje ile ilgili gelişmelerden haberdar olmak için)

  26. very cool

  27. Halal olsun, Qurur duydum.

  28. Hocam bu arabalar nasıl çalışıyor? Nasıl ilerliyorlar?

  29. Merhaba. Ben elektrik elektronik mühendisiliğinde Y.L. yapıyorum. Hocam bana nano kristallerle uğraşmamı önermişti ama ben makine öğrenimini seçtim. Acaba "reinforcement learning" eklenebilir mi? Unreal yada Unity engine ile simule edilebilir mi? Daha Y.L. yapıyorum ama sizinle doktorada beraber çalışabilir miyim?
    Daha yeni duydum böyle birşeyi ve ilgimi çekti.
