JAGUAR LAND ROVER LIGHTS UP THE ROAD AHEAD FOR SELF-DRIVING VEHICLES OF THE FUTURE
Interesting HCI work on showing self driving car intentions. Japanese makers seem to working more towards expressive eyes as the signal system though.

PRACTICAL METHODOLOGIES FOR LOW DELTA-V PENALTY, ON-TIME DEPARTURES TO ARBITRARY INTERPLANETARY DESTINATIONS FROM A MEDIUM-INCLINATION LOW-EARTH ORBIT DEPOT
So LEO propellant depots always have an alignment problem if using a single burn from the depot, making them unattractive. But if you can handle an extra few weeks (and a long duration upper stage), 3 burn departure basically fixes all the sins of a prop depot.

ByteLight
Okay, so these guys are cheating a little here. The LED lights (customized Solais Lighting LED bulbs) flash a high speed morse code MAC address, which a smartphone camera app decodes and sends to a cloud service to pick up information and content to be shown in the app. So info can be exhibit contents, as well as indoor navigation locations.

Interesting chinese work on using EoL C-band transmitter GEO satellites that have drifted off-plane as a pseudo-GPS system with potentially equivalent performance to GPS at substantially lower cost. I assume there will also be a terrestrial repeater network, likely cellular tower based, for improvements in urban canyon environments. The interesting question is will any existing satellite operator be wiling to rent their EoL but still operable satellites, as this can be considered part of a military weapons and navigation system potentially. The alternative is chinese GEO sats having the capability baked in to improve usefulness at EoL. They only need 4 SIGSO sats and 2 GEO sats for the minimum constellation, ostensibly covering mainland china.
