Robotics in the Second Machine Age
We are entering an age of robots that are infiltrating many areas of work and life in general. This department is following the development of robotics in this new machine age.
The new field of biohybrid robotics involves the use of living tissue within robots, rather than just metal and plastic.
New study describes first human implementation of novel approach to limb amputation.
In the world of robotics, soft robots are the new kids on the block. The unique capabilities of these automata are to bend, deform, stretch, twist or squeeze in all the ways that conventional rigid robots cannot.
If you are not one of the few million people who have seen the videos released by Boston dynamics 2 days ago then you are in for a treat. Atlas goes for a casual jog in the back yard and SpotMini navigates autonomously around the the office and factory floor... And...
An innovative, eel-like robot developed by engineers and marine biologists at the University of California can swim silently in salt water without an electric motor. Instead, the robot uses artificial muscles filled with water to propel itself.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) continue to pioneer new antenna measurement methods, this time for future 5G wireless communications systems.
Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) scientists have developed a robot that can autonomously assemble an IKEA chair without interruption.
A team of California researchers has developed a robotic gripper that combines the adhesive properties of gecko toes and the adaptability of air-powered soft robots to grasp a much wider variety of objects than the state of the art.
Case Western Reserve University researchers make dynamic advances with new atomically thin device.
New fiber-based endoscope, tested in mice, poised to bring new insights into brain function.
