Stanford Researchers Develop a New Type of Soft, Growing Robot

By Taylor Kubota | Jul 21, 2017 @ 08:41 | A newly developed vine-like growing robot can across long distances without moving its whole body. It could prove useful in search and rescue operations and medical applications. Imagine rescuers searching for people in the rubble of a collapsed building. Instead of digging through the debris by […]

Robotic Gripper For Cleaning up Space Debris

Robotic Gripper For Cleaning up Space Debris

By Taylor Kubota | Jul 1, 2017 @ 18:33 | Researchers combined gecko-inspired adhesives and a custom robotic gripper to create a device for grabbing space debris. They tested their gripper in multiple zero gravity settings, including the International Space Station. Right now, about 500,000 pieces of human-made debris are whizzing around space, orbiting our planet […]

Space Robot Technology Helps Self-Driving Cars and Drones On Earth

By Sarah Derouin |Jun 17, 2017 @ 09:06 | Stanford engineer’s have developed a Space robots that are traveling through space, hauling debris and exploring distant asteroids, may hold the technological key to problems facing drones and autonomous cars here on Earth. The key to making fleets of self-driving cars and grocery delivery by drones […]

Robotics kit for Students to Automate Biology Experiments

Robotics kit for Students to Automate Biology Experiments

Mar 22, 2017 @ 19:55 | By Andrew Myers Modern biology labs often use robotic assemblies to drop precise amounts of fluids into experimental containers. Now students and teachers can create inexpensive automated systems to do this in clubs or classrooms. Elementary and secondary school students who later want to become scientists and engineers often get […]

How to Teach Autonomous Vehicles to Take Driving Decisions like Human?

How to Teach Autonomous Vehicles to Take Driving Decisions like Human?

Jul 30, 2016 @ 20:59 |  Stanford engineers are conducting experiments to translate social behavior into algorithms so that self-driving cars will maintain vehicle safety and passenger comfort. Autonomous robotics has gone through a lot of evolution in the last few decades. One of the technology that has be most talked and invested on is […]

A Robotic Stingray may Help to Understand Working of Heart

A Robotic Stingray may Help to Understand Working of Heart

Jul 8, 2016 @ 21:30 |  Bio-Inspired researchers have designed a miniature bio-hybrid robotic stingray that could help our understanding of the heart. Robotic Stingray is neither fully living animal nor fully artificial robot; it is the hybrid of both. It has an elastomeric body enclosing a micro-fabricated gold skeleton (non living) with rat heart […]

Stanford Jackrabbot, A Social Robot to Understand Human Behavior

Jun 1, 2016 @ 21:03 | Stanford| USA | Human behavior cannot be predicted by any mathematical rule; human may behave differently in different situations and also changes over time. So to navigate among the humans on sidewalks and mingle with humans in crowded places, robots have to understand the unwritten rules of human behavior. […]
