London Science Museum wants to Rebuild the UK’s First Robot – Eric

May 11, 2016 @ 20:13 |  UK’s first robot, Eric was one of the world’s first robots and has a unique place in history. This Robot was invented at Gomshall, near Dorking, by Captain William H. Richards, a veteran of the First World War, and a noted journalist and A. H. Reffell, a motor engineer.  What caused […]

ESA astronaut successfully drives rover from Earth orbit

ESA astronaut successfully drives rover from Earth orbit

ESA astronaut Andreas Mogensen has successfully driven and manipulated an Earth-based rover whilst orbiting at a height of 400 km (249 miles) aboard the International Space Station (ISS). The control system used a sophisticated form of force-feedback that allowed Mogensen to determine when the rover’s robotic arm met resistance. The technology has the potential to […]

Breakthrough in 3D metal printing

Breakthrough in 3D metal printing

While traditional 3D printing using fused deposition modelling (FDM) techniques becomes evermore commonplace, engineers are looking to develop further 3D printing technologies to widen its application within the manufacturing industry. Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is one of the key areas for 3D printing research, which uses laser beams to project and bind powdered materials, typically […]

Astronaut to try Precision task on Earth from Orbit

Astronaut to try Precision task on Earth from Orbit

In the early september we will see force-feedback-based teleoperation of a rover-based robotic arm system on Earth from the International Space Station, orbiting 400 km above our heads. Danish ESA astronaut Andreas Mogensen will take control of the Interact Centaur rover, which incorporates a pair of arms to perform precision operations. In the process Andreas […]

Autonomous Humanoid Robot with Model Based Design

Autonomous Humanoid Robot with Model Based Design

Our life is full of smart systems like mobile phone, laptops etc. These systems are embedded with software. Programmers have to write thousands of thousand line codes to implement a complex algorithm on system. This consumes lots of time and effort to develop correct software. To address this problem MathWorks came with ‘model based design’. […]
