A Hydraulic Drive High-Power Artificial Muscle

Jan 28, 2017 @ 17:29 The high-power artificial muscle that was successfully developed is a kind of McKibben type artificial muscle. As part of the Impulsing PAradigm Change through disruptive Technologies Program (ImPACT) Tough Robotics Challenge (Program Manager: Satoshi Tadokoro), which is an initiative of the Cabinet Office Council for Science, Technology and Innovation, the […]

Robots Learning To Pick Things Up As Babies Do

Robots Learning To Pick Things Up As Babies Do

Jan 27, 2017 @ 04:52 The Carnegie Mellon University provides a Robot that learns To Pick Things Up As Babies Do,by pushing and poking objects, putting them in their mouths and throwing them. Carnegie Mellon University scientists are taking a similar approach to teach robots how to recognize and grasp objects around them. Manipulation remains a […]

This Wearable Robot can Save Your Energy while Carrying Load

This Wearable Robot can Save Your Energy while Carrying Load

Jan 23, 2017 @ 02:40 A Harvard University’s team provided a wearable robot could lower energy expenditure in healthy people walking with a load on their back. Made of functional textiles, cable-based actuation and a biologically-inspired control system, the exosuit targets specific leg joints – instead of the full leg – and delivers assistance that […]

SALTO Jumping Robot: Most Vertically Agile Robot Ever Built

Dec 9, 2016 @ 19:48 | By Brett Israel |  UC Berkeley’s bio-inspired researchers have made SALTO (Saltatorial Locomotion on Terrain Obstacles), a Galago inspired, single legged jumping robot with vertical jumping agility 1.75 m/s. Roboticists at UC Berkeley have designed a small robot that can leap into the air and then spring off a wall, or […]

Dyke Inspection Robot Will Be Energy Autonomous

Dyke Inspection Robot Will Be Energy Autonomous

Nov 10, 2016 @ 18:36 |  Future robots that continuously inspect our dikes won’t come across an electrical charging station every few hours. Using a smart gear box for the robot, a researcher has managed to drastically reduce the energy consumption. The energy-autonomous robot comes closer. Inspecting the condition of dykes and other sea defence […]
