C-Turtle Robot Teaches Itself to Get Around

May 26, 2017 @ 15:03 | Arizona State University designed C-Turtle Robot  thats walks over sand and stones with a pair of orange flippers toward lumpy red buttes in the distance. This technology comes from collaboration between computer science, mechanical engineering and biology. It looks like the beginning of a Star Wars movie: a lone robot pushing itself […]

Shedding Light On How Humans Walk…With Robots

Shedding Light On How Humans Walk…With Robots

By Lindsay Brownell |  May 24, 2017 @ 20:19 Research on rehabilitation robots reveals that patients only modify their walking patterns if the robots interfere with gait stability, which could influence future clinical robotic design. Learning how to walk is difficult for toddlers to master; it’s even harder for adults who are recovering from a […]
