New Robot Printer Spits out Recyclable Robots

By  Vibeke Arildsen |  Jul 12, 2017 @ 12:49 | In just 13 minutes, a newly developed robot printer can transform an aluminum wire with little motors attached into a functional robot that can be recycled and reused for other purposes. Researchers from the IT University of Copenhagen (ITU), MIT and Columbia, among others, are behind the […]

Undersea Robot Reveals “Schools” of Animals in Deep Scattering Layers

Undersea Robot Reveals “Schools” of Animals in Deep Scattering Layers

Jul 12, 2017 @ 09:06 | Throughout the world ocean, animals congregate at certain depths. A new paper in Limnology and Oceanography shows that, rather than consisting of a random mixture of animals, these Scattering  layers contain discrete groups or “schools” of squids, fishes, and crustaceans. Throughout the world ocean, animals congregate at certain depths, […]

Human Pose Estimation for Care Robots Using Deep Learning

Human Pose Estimation for Care Robots Using Deep Learning

Jul 12, 2017 @ 08:12 | A research group led by Professor  at Toyohashi University of Technology, has developed a method to estimate various poses using deep learning with depth data alone. Although it requires a large volume of data, the group has realized a technology which efficiently generates data using computer graphics and motion […]

Robots to Help Children with Autism

Robots to Help Children with Autism

Jul 1, 2017 @ 18:06 | New research involving the University of Portsmouth is aiming to develop robots to help children with autism in ways humans can’t. The Development of Robot-Enhanced therapy for children with AutisM spectrum disorders (DREAM) project will design robots that can operate autonomously and help the therapist to improve the child’s […]

A Dual-Arm Construction Robot with Remote-Control Function

Jul 1, 2017 @ 17:50 | Japanese researcher develop new concept of Dual-Arm Construction Robot for disaster relief situations In disaster areas, operating heavy construction equipment remotely and autonomously is necessary, but conventional remote-controlled heavy equipment has problems such as insufficient operability, inability to perform heavy-duty work, limited mobility on slopes and stairs, and low […]

Universal Concept to Regulate Robot Behaviour

Universal Concept to Regulate Robot Behaviour

Jul 1, 2017 @ 17:33 | Empowerment could potentially replace Asimov’s famous Three Laws of Robotics, to ensure robots behave in a socially acceptable way. Artificial intelligence experts from the University of Hertfordshire, Dr Christoph Salge and Professor Daniel Polani, have designed a concept which could lead to a new set of generic, situation-aware guidelines […]
