A Novel Mechanical Design can Balance Bipedal Robots Without using Computer Brain and Sensors

A Novel Mechanical Design can Balance Bipedal Robots Without using Computer Brain and Sensors

May 3, 2017 @ 20:21 |  A bipedal robot, called Planar Elliptical Runner doesn’t need orientation sensors and computer brain to balance itself, its mechanical design is sufficient to provide dynamic stability as it runs. Inspired by Ostrich, Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC) researchers have developed a bipedal robot, called Planar Elliptical Runner. In this project, the […]

Synthetic Two-Sided Gecko’s Foot Could Enable Underwater Robotics

Synthetic Two-Sided Gecko’s Foot Could Enable Underwater Robotics

Apr 27, 2017 @ 17:58| Inspired from gecko’s foot, scientists have created a double-sided adhesive that copies this reversible ability to stick and unstick to surfaces even in wet conditions. Geckos are well known for effortlessly scrambling up walls and upside down across ceilings. Even in slippery rain forests, the lizards maintain their grip. Now […]

Ut Researcher Creates Robotic Cheetah

Apr 24, 2017 @ 17:05| University of twente researcher geert folkertsma has developed a prototype cheetah robot. Folkertsma has dedicated four years of research and development to constructing a scaled-down robotic version of the fastest land animal in the world, with a view to replicating its movements. Relatively speaking, the robot moves using only about […]

New Research Improves the Understating of Gait Transition in Quadruped Robots

New Research Improves the Understating of Gait Transition in Quadruped Robots

Mar 23, 2017 @ 19:11 |  Quadrupeds, or four-legged animals, have different locomotive patterns depending upon the speed, e.g. walking, trotting, and galloping.Through this study, the researchers successfully demonstrated the reproduction of the quadruped gait transition phenomena. To save the body energy, Quadrupeds change locomotive patterns. For slow speed, walk gait; for medium speed, trot gait […]

Transparent, gel-based robots can catch and release live fish

Transparent, gel-based robots can catch and release live fish

Feb 2, 2017 @ 05:25 | By Jennifer Chu |  MIT News Made from hydrogel, gel-based robots may one day assist in surgical operations, evade underwater detection. Engineers at MIT have fabricated transparent, gel-based robots that move when water is pumped in and out of them. The bots can perform a number of fast, forceful tasks, including kicking […]
