Whether it's the food takeaway industry utilising mobile apps or sports events using video assisted refereeing, technological advances are helping our world progress and become better.
Global development and technology consultancy Cambridge Consultants has developed a robot that can emulate human touch. Hank uses sensors and soft grippers controlled by airflows.
World's first haptic telerobot hand (Tactile Telerobot) to officially launch at first public event at CEATEC 2019 in Japan
The exhibit will be divided into several scenario-based themes, each demonstrating a distinctive way to implement the technology. There will be scenarios for the use of robots in a kitchen, school, fish market, living room, laboratory and skill sharing.
We are developing a general purpose, robotic control software platform that allows the user to use semantic commands, in a simulated VR environment.
UB engineers develop a dynamic gripper that mimics the adjustable grip of a human hand, an advancement that could improve industrial safety
The role of robots is increasing in the automation of business processes. Robots are even touching human life and are also being used in customer-facing roles.
The traditional vision architecture is changing, with an evolution from cameras and sensors to networked and smart-enabled, compact embedded devices with the processing power required for real-time analysis.
The terms accuracy and repeatability are often used interchangeably. However, accuracy is not possible without repeatability, but repeatability is achievable without accuracy. There are other errors, too, non-linearity errors, and linearity errors caused by thermal effects.
Hirth Engines Head of International Business Development, Peter Lietz, highlights the importance for engine manufacturers to advance endurance capabilities of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in extreme terrains.
Researchers create new kind of robot composed of many simple particles with no centralized control or single point of failure
In a new study published today in Nature, researchers at Columbia Engineering and MIT Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) demonstrate for the first time a way to make a robot composed of many loosely coupled components, or "particles."
Both brushed and brushless DC motors can be operated as generators. However, there are some important points to consider when designing the drive.
Columbia Engineering researchers have made a major advance in robotics by creating a robot that learns what it is, from scratch, with zero prior knowledge of physics, geometry, or motor dynamics.
ASU's Southwest Robotics Symposium previews the new technology guiding the next wave of human-robot interaction
"We can rely on the brain of the human and the muscles, eyes and sense of touch of the robot in places where humans cannot, or should not, be," said Khatib. "For example, we will be able to safely repair underwater structures
One of the basic requirements for the drives of mobile robots is high power density. For robots, this usually means high torque while taking up the smallest possible space.
Developed in the lab of Yale's Rebecca Kramer-Bottiglio, NASA-inspired robotic skins enable users to turn soft objects - a stuffed animal or a foam tube, for instance - into robots.

Zaber's X-LRQ-DE Series of linear stages have high stiffness, load, and lifetime capabilities in a compact size. The integrated linear encoder combined with stage calibration provides high accuracy positioning over the full travel of the device. At 36 mm high, these stages are excellent for applications where a low profile is required. The X-LRQ-DE's innovative design allows speeds up to 205 mm/s and loads up to 100 kg. Like all Zaber products, the X-LRQ-DE Series is designed for easy set-up and operation.
