Guanhong Hu for Quartz: Shuhei Miyashita and his team used the origami concept to make exoskeletons for a magnetic cube robot, called "Primer", letting it morph on demand to do various things in different conditions.
Greg Nichols for ZDNet: The biomechanics of bipedal walking are preposterously complex. A French firm claims to have built a robotic suit that can emulate the way we walk.
Unlike memory folks in the audience who like to keep their secrets secret, Hyundai/Kia and Bzeih have laid out their roadmap for the next decade with some autonomous systems by 2020 and mass production by 2022.
Duncan Geere for Tech Radar: Now researchers from Universit© Paris-Saclay are attempting to bestow the same benefits onto robots. Adriana Tapus and her colleagues are aiming to develop a humanoid robot that's sensitive to tactile stimulation in the same way people are.
Tekla S. Perry for IEEE Spectrum: "Im a big fan of going out and doing a service with a robot, competing with other businesses that provide that service, rather than trying to sell a $100,000 robot,"
ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces: The development, reported in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, could lead to new ways for people to interact with machines and even create self-folding robots.
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.
Janie Har, Associated Press: Jane Kim, the city supervisor who is pushing the robot tax, says it's important to think now about how people will earn a living as more U.S. jobs are lost to automation.
Stephanie Condon for ZDNet: The maturity of automated technology used in manufacturing is all over the map, says Carnegie Mellon Prof. Howie Choset, but there are concrete ways to fix that.
Simon Parkin for MIT Technology Review: Drone delivery wont happen until the unmanned vehicle can master the emergency landing.
Why is it so difficult to make walking more efficient in humans? There are a few challenges. People are highly complex, in the dynamics of our movements, in our hundreds of muscles and tendons, and in our wildly complex nervous systems.
Penns School of Engineering and Applied Science: Burka hopes to build up a database of one thousand surfaces to help coach robots on how to identify objects and also to know what theyre made of and how best to handle them.
Pallab Ghosh for BBC News: "The thriving of people and communities needs to be put first, and we think Asimov's principles can be subsumed into that."
Payload and inertia are both important factors when designing End of Arm Tooling and selecting a robot. The differences between the two and how they affect choosing a robot is explained in this article.
Tom Simonite for MIT Technology Review: Melonee Wises of Fetch Robotics spoke with San Francisco bureau chief Tom Simonite.

TE Connectivity's HDC Dynamic Module integrates the Dynamic series flexible signal and power solutions and the HDC Heavy Duty Connector series to form a solution of harsh environment connectors. TE's HDC Dynamic Module offers the top features of the two series. It uses the contact concept of the Dynamic series, with its proven performance in industrial uses and its cost effectiveness compared to legacy cutting contacts. The HDC connectors make the module a reliable solution for harsh environments. TE's HDC Dynamic Module supports 2A/32V to 40A/300V performance and 3 positions to 48 positions.
