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.
Researchers aboard Schmidt Ocean Institute’s research vessel Falkor used autonomous underwater robots, along with the Institute’s remotely operated vehicle (ROV) SuBastian, to acquire 1.3 million high resolution images of the seafloor at Hydrate Ridge, composing them into the largest known high resolution color 3D model of the seafloor.
A joint team from KAIST, Caltech, and Imperial College London, presents a drone with a new algorithm to shepherd birds safely away from airports
Researchers have built a robot, named Minnie, to serve as a reading buddy to middle school kids, and Minnie’s new friends grew more excited about books and more attached to the robot over two weeks of reading together.
Why trust should play a crucial part in the development of intelligent machines for medical therapies
Robots can play an important role in the education of young people but will never fully replace teachers, a new study suggests.
An origami-like drone developed at EPFL is flexible enough to absorb shocks without breaking before returning to its initial shape.
The ability to correctly order tasks is a skill that robots must possess in order to carry out complex missions. Researchers at ULB’s IRIDIA laboratory have shown, for the first time, that this ability can emerge from a group of robots.
A new highly maneuverable search and rescue robot that can creep, crawl and climb over rough terrain and through tight spaces has been developed.
Researchers have developed a prototype of a robot that can express ’emotions’ through changes in its outer surface. The robot’s skin covers a grid of texture units whose shapes change based on the robot’s feelings.
Researchers have demonstrated a novel synaptic architecture that could lead to a new class of information processing systems inspired by the brain.
