Helping Robots Correct Errors on-the-Fly and Learn From Each Other

Aug 21, 2017 @ 18:30 | New stochastic separation theorems proved by University of Leicester mathematicians could enhance capabilities of artificial intelligence. Errors in Artificial Intelligence which would normally take a considerable amount of time to resolve could be corrected immediately with the help of new research from the University of Leicester. Researchers from the University […]

Human versus Robots in the Discovery and Crystallization of Gigantic

Human versus Robots in the Discovery and Crystallization of Gigantic

Aug 6, 2017 @ 08:52 | Who is the better experimentalist, a human or a robot? When it comes to exploring synthetic and crystallization conditions for inorganic gigantic molecules, actively learning machines are clearly ahead, as demonstrated by British Scientists in an experiment with polyoxometalates published in the journal Angewandte Chemie. Polyoxometalates form through self-assembly […]

Smart Hanging Robot Keeps People Walking During Rehab

Smart Hanging Robot Keeps People Walking During Rehab

Jul 28, 2017 @ 17:45 | A mobile harness suspended from the ceiling is now equipped with intelligent motion analysis for tailored walking rehabilitation in people suffering from spinal cord injury, stroke and other neurological disorders affecting gait. Scientists from NCCR Robotics at EPFL and at the Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV) developed an algorithm that […]

New Algorithm, Metrics Improve Autonomous Underwater Vehicles’ Energy Efficiency

New Algorithm, Metrics Improve Autonomous Underwater Vehicles’ Energy Efficiency

Jul 21, 2017 @ 05:29 | Robotics researchers have found a way for autonomous underwater vehicles to navigate strong currents with greater energy efficiency, which means the AUVs can gather data longer and better. AUVs such as underwater gliders are valuable research tools limited primarily by their energy budget – every bit of battery power […]

Hardware ROS and Programming Robots with Blocks

Oct 9, 2016 @ 09:22 |  The aim of Hardware ROS (H-ROS) is creating easily reusable and reconfigurable robot hardware components to simplify the creation of robots and allow parts from different manufacturers to interoperate. Erle Robotics, developer of next generation of artificial brains for robots and drones is developing the Hardware Robot Operating System […]

Interact with Robot in Your Natural Language

Interact with Robot in Your Natural Language

Oct 7, 2016 @ 13:55 |  Researchers at the University of Rochester have developed a model for processing natural language so that a robot can be given basic verbal commands and then act on them without the need for additional programming. Robots can be programmed to perform all sorts of repetitive tasks, but they don’t adapt well to […]

Levi Armstrong from Southwest Research Institute has developed Qt Creator IDE (Integrated Development Environment) Plug-in for ROS. ROS Qt Creator Plug-in increases developers’ efficiency by simplifying tasks and creating a centralized […]

A Drone that can Avoid Obstacles like an Insect

A Drone that can Avoid Obstacles like an Insect

Jul 16, 2016 @ 03:02 | EPFL | EPLF Physics student Darius Merk has used an insect-inspired algorithm to develop a drone that can navigate around obstacles. His research could prove particularly useful in a natural disaster. How do you send a drone on a reconnaissance mission in a hard-to-reach area without it getting stuck in […]
