Robotics researchers are developing exoskeletons and prosthetic legs capable of thinking and moving on their own using sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) technology.
Researchers develop a new rechargeable zinc battery that integrates into the structure of a robot to provide much more energy. The battery membrane is a nano-material based on cartilage, using … Read More
A crucial question for practical applications is how fast intelligent machines can learn. An experiment has answered this question, showing that quantum technology enables a speed-up in the learning process.
Researchers published results of experiments in which robots led a Swedish word game with individuals whose proficiency in the Nordic language was varied. They found that by redirecting its gaze … Read More
A robotic gripper with the sensor mounted at the fingertip could accomplish challenging tasks such as stably grasping fragile objects and threading a needle.
Service robots can help ensure that buildings and means of transport are cleaned and disinfected regularly and with consistently high quality.
Researchers have created a low-cost method for soft, deformable robots to detect a range of physical interactions, from pats to punches to hugs, without relying on touch at all. Instead, … Read More
Robots are interesting to neuroscience and neuroscience is interesting to robots. Such collaborative development contributes to progress in both fields, bringing us closer to developing more advanced android robots and … Read More
Researchers discovered how to make materials capable of self-propulsion, allowing materials to move without motors or hands.
Good portrait photography is as much art as it is science. There are technical details like composition and lighting, but there’s also a matter of connecting emotionally with the photo?s … Read More
Using the pulse-jet mode that squid and jellyfish use to propel themselves, researchers developed a flexible robot that is as efficient at swimming as its biological models. Further research could … Read More
Scientists have completely decrypted the biomechanical functional principle of what is known as the labial mask of dragonfly larvae. The technology used here could lead to a significant enhancement of … Read More
Researchers make a big leap in development of soft robotic grippers by integrating sensing mechanisms into 3D printable fingers.
Drones, robots and autonomous systems can transform the natural world in and around cities for people and wildlife.
A team of physicists and engineers have proposed a new principle by which active matter systems can spontaneously order, without need for higher level instructions or even programmed interaction among … Read More
By using small networks of Roessler systems, a locomotion controller enables a brain-machine interface for a six-legged antlike robot.
New research has shown robots can encourage people to take greater risks in a simulated gambling scenario than they would if there was nothing to influence their behaviours. Increasing our … Read More
