ROBOTICS

ROBOTICS

Robots could become a lot more 'sensitive' thanks to new artificial skins and sensor technologies developed by European scientists. Leading to better robotic platforms that could one day be used in industry, hospitals and...

Control algorithm for teams of robots factors in moving obstacles. Planning algorithms for teams of robots fall into two categories: centralized algorithms, in which a single computer makes decisions for the whole team, and decentralized...

Engineers at Harvard University and the University of California, San Diego, have created the first robot with a 3D-printed body that transitions from a rigid core to a soft exterior. The robot is capable...

New human-machine interface keeps robot balanced, with human reflexes. Deep in the basement of MIT’s Building 3, a two-legged robot named HERMES is wreaking controlled havoc: punching through drywall, smashing soda cans, kicking over trash...

“Russia was the first to go outer space, the U.S. was the first to go to the moon, we want Japan to be the first to send a robot-astronaut to space that can communicate...

For scientists listening in on the faint whispers of brain neurons, a first-ever robotic technique for cleaning the tiny devices that record the signals could facilitate a new level of automation in neuroscience research....

Researchers at EPFL and UNIL have discovered a faster and more efficient gait, never observed in nature, for six-legged robots walking on flat ground. Bio-inspired gaits – less efficient for robots – are used...

The ExtrusionBot is the worlds fastest home built automatic filament extrusion Bot that can make color in ABS and PLA @ up to 4ft / min 3D Printing You know what it is, you know...

Mark Robert Anderson, Edge Hill University When science fiction author Isaac Asimov devised his Three Laws of Robotics he was thinking about androids. He envisioned a world where these human-like robots would act like servants...

If you follow technology news — or even if you don’t — you have probably heard that numerous companies have been trying to develop driverless cars for a decade or more. These fully automated vehicles...

Summary: With the busiest travel season of the year upon us, airports around the globe find staffers over-taxed.  Enter Spencer, a robot helping passengers navigate Schiphol International airport. The robot in the "Spencer" project is...
