In this post, we've gathered insights from our Field Robotics Test Manager here at Clearpath, Martin Cote. Keep reading to find out what he wish he'd known about field research.
How can you print something larger than the printer itself? That's the problem researchers Xu Zhang, Mingyang Li, Quang-Cuong Pham, and others set out to solve at the Singapore Centre for 3D Printing...
IDC was briefed to develop a humanoid robot that was capable of typing with fingers like a human to mimic the typing of a user, at a typing speed of 3-4 keys/second.
Given the name Cheetah 3 by its developers, the robot, which weighs less than 100 pounds, is roughly the size and shape of a medium-sized dog. It's the ideal solution for crawling through narrow spaces, traversing dangerous obstacles and inspecting inaccessible areas.
We have created electronic circuitry that is soft and stretchable and capable of spontaneously reforming electrical connections when the material is cut, torn, or punctured. It is made of microscopic droplets of liquid metal that are suspended in a soft silicone rubber.
Stairs are still unsurmountable obstacles for many robots. Yet a young team at ETH Zurich is building a vehicle designed to negotiate steps with ease - by hopping.
Amazon has created more than 3,500 full-time jobs in Massachusetts and invested over $400 million in the state since 2011, from customer fulfillment infrastructure to research facilities
We picture a reality where they have safe robots in the home to help lift heavy pots off the stove or heavy baskets off the floor, or walking robots that can carry groceries home or carry luggage.
Can a robot have a better bedside manner than a doctor? Perhaps. But a humanoid robot packed with the latest technology can certainly spend more time with a child in the hospital, become his or her confidant and utilize technological abilities that exceed humans.
A self-contained soft actuator three times stronger than natural muscle, without the need of externals, signals a breakthrough in soft robotics.
Reuters: The Siemens research center at Beijing's Tsinghua University would focus on combined mechanics and electronics, human-robot collaboration and the application of artificial intelligence in robotic controllers, the German firm said.
Jason Maderer for Georgia Tech: Researchers can write their own computer programs, upload them, then get the results as the Georgia Tech machines carry out the commands. They also receive video evidence and data of the experiment.
By continuing to add more computing capabilities for AI on edge devices with NVIDIA Jetson, and more tools and platforms to accelerate robotics development, like Isaac and the Jetson robotics reference platforms, we can help researchers and companies build robots that are more capable, less expensive, and safer to deploy.

UCSD: Underwater robots developed by researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego offer scientists an extraordinary new tool to study ocean currents and the tiny creatures they transport. Swarms of these underwater robots helped answer some basic questions about the most abundant life forms in the ocean—plankton. Scripps research oceanographer Jules Jaffe designed and built the miniature autonomous underwater explorers, or M-AUEs, to study small-scale environmental processes taking place in the ocean. The ocean-probing instruments are equipped with temperature and other sensors to measure the surrounding ocean conditions while the robots “swim” up and down to maintain a constant depth by adjusting their buoyancy. The M-AUEs could potentially be deployed in swarms of hundreds to thousands to capture a three-dimensional view of the interactions between ocean currents and marine life. Cont'd...

REIKU's Cable Saver™ Solution eliminates downtime, loss of revenue, expensive cable and hose replacement costs, maintenance labour costs. It's available in three sizes 36, 52 and 70 mm. All of the robots cables and hoses are protected when routed through the Cable Saver™ corrugated tubing. The Cable Saver™ uses a spring retraction system housed inside the Energy Tube™ to keep this service loop out of harms way in safe location at the rear of the Robot when not required. The Cable Saver™ is a COMPLETE solution for any make or model of robot. It installs quickly-on either side of the robot and has been tested to resist over 15 million repetitive cycles.
