    Array Of Things(AoT):
    It has been recently launched in Chicago, it aims at mapping the entire city to collect different kinds of data like noise, traffic, humidity, temperature etc. . It will also provide real-time, location-based data about the city’s environment, infrastructure and activity to researchers and the public.
    It can be used to address several challenges like flooding , traffic congestion,safety etc.

    Swarm Robotics:
    It is a multi-robot system inspired from nature which has a great potential in several aspects. It can be used to study the behavior and patterns of different organisms.

    The typical applications of swarm robotics are as follows: UAV controlling, post-disaster relief, mining, geological survey, military applications and cooperative transportation. The swarm robotics can complete these tasks through cooperative behavior emerged from the individuals while a single robot can barely adapt to such situation. This is the reason why the swarm robotics has become an important research field in last decade.

    Hyperloop:
    Hyperloop is a proposed mode of transportation which will revolutionize the way one travels. The distance which earlier took 11hrs to travel can now be covered within 50 minutes using hyperloop.

    Li-Fi (Light Fidelity):
    Similar to Wi-Fi , a new concept called Li-Fi is being developed which uses visible light for transmission instead of RF signals. Unlike the RF signals visible light is more focused and concentrated . It is much more faster than WiFi . Researchers at Oxford achieved a speed of 224 Gigabits per second in the lab, which is over 200 times faster than a Google Fiber internet connection.

    LiFi has other advantages too – as it uses visible light it cannot penetrate through walls, offering a higher degree of privacy to the users. However it is still at an experimental stage.

    RadarCat:
    It is a technology that uses Google’s project Soli for object recognition and can be used for a wide range of application from helping the blind to replacing the barcodes. And it also opens up new opportunities in Industrial automation.

    EDITS :

    Autonomous Car:(Thanks for the suggestions Shakti Prasad Mohanty )
    Also known by different names like driverless car or self-driving car. It uses techniques like computer vision and GPS, for navigating and driving the car with the help of Artificial intelligence.

    Robotic prosthetic limbs and bionic eye:
    The prosthetic limbs can be used to aid the disabled and bionic eye can help the blind individuals to see this beautiful world.

    3 D printing :(Thanks for the suggestions Rahul)
    It finds a wide range of applications from producing artificial organs to building architectural marvels.Many different materials can be used for 3 D printing, such as ABS plastic, PLA, polyamide (nylon), glass filled polyamide, stereolithography materials (epoxy resins), silver, titanium, steel, wax, photo polymers and poly carbonate.

    Thank you !
