Optical Flytrap Opens New Venues In The Development Of Soft Microbots

May 24, 2017 @ 19:26 | Materials that can be moved with light are rapidly developing. TUT’s Smart Photonic Materials research group’s research on an optical gripper, resembling a Venus flytrap, was published in the Nature Communications journal. The research opens new venues in the development of soft microbots. The Venus flytrap is a carnivorous […]

This “ready2_spray” KUKA Robot Can Paint Your Home

May 17, 2017 @ 08:54 | Dürr and KUKA have joined forces: together they have developed an integrated solution “ready2_spray” for automated paint application. While the small robot from the KR AGILUS series comes from KUKA, Dürr provides the paint application technology.  Small robot with components: a unique combination Pre-installed and ready-to-spray, the robot from […]

Virtual Top Hats Allow Swarming Robots to Fly in Tight Formation

Virtual Top Hats Allow Swarming Robots to Fly in Tight Formation

By Jason Maderer | May 16, 2017 @ 06:12 | Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have created a team of free-flying Swarming robots that obeys the two rules of the air: don’t collide or undercut each other. They’ve also built autonomous blimps that recognize hand gestures and detect faces. In the first, five swarm quadcopters zip […]
