The Halcyon Showcase was designed to be only the beginning of a national and global dialogue on the future of robotics policy. Several recommendations in the report are centered around the creation of groups of experts and advisory structures designed to continue the expansion of knowledge and policies pertaining to robotics and AI.
The combination of new applications for robotics for automotive, military and healthcare applications and lower cost sensor technology is causing significant growth in the sensors for robotics market, according to BCC Research's recent report on the topic.
As if the DoD wasn't important enough on its own, their need for the latest and greatest in technology cannot be overstated - it might be critical to the future defense of our nation.
The basic idea of AI problem-solving is very simple, but its implementation is not so simple. The AI robot collects information about a situation through sensors. The computer compares this information to stored data and decides what the information suggests. The computer runs through various possible actions and predicts which action will be most successful based on the collected information.
Using our technology, we are able to reduce the cost of the whole vehicle (including the chassis, the computing hardware, and the sensing hardware, and the software stack) under $10,000 USD.
A self-contained soft actuator three times stronger than natural muscle, without the need of externals, signals a breakthrough in soft robotics.
The module allows rapid development of new robots by providing all the sensors and sensor processing software in one compact, pre-calibrated device with multiple interfaces supported to meet varying developer requirements.
Since the medical and manufacturing industries both handle sensitive materials, the shift to having robots handle them instead can save lives and cut costs.
The process of building a diversified investment portfolio is a substantial advantage for robo-advisors. The account setup process usually takes minutes and knowledgeable investors with a do-it-yourself mentality welcome the ease of executing trades.
Rutgers University-New Brunswick engineers have discovered a simple, economical way to make a nano-sized device that can match the friendly neighborhood Avenger, on a much smaller scale. Their creation weighs 1.6 milligrams (about as much as five poppy seeds) and can lift 265 milligrams (the weight of about 825 poppy seeds) hundreds of times in a row.
Multilingual correspondence through smartphones can be realized in real time at any time, 365 days, for foreigners' inquiries and requests to visit Japan. The service is in full use offering accommodation facilities like Holiday Inn and Grand Bell Hotel and car rental service "Times Car Rental".
The main drivers included improving productivity and efficiency, improving repeatability and consistency of processes, increasing operations capacity, increasing operational agility and flexibility, reducing labor costs, and increasing speed of operations.
If researchers can use implanted BCIs to allow people to bypass their muscles, indeed, if these scientists can find a cost-effective, reliable way to work around a damaged or compromised nervous system, people suffering paraplegia, amputation, multiple sclerosis, Lou Gehrig's, and a host of other diseases that rob them of their independence, may soon find that the frustrations of daily life are lessened.
Japanese scientists and technology companies are coming up with new ways to deal with employee shortages in the sphere of delivery and courier service. How exactly? By introducing a robot that can deliver food to your home.
Healthcare providers say that the robots can help reduce costs, make operations more efficient and serve as a marketing tool to position hospitals as early adapters of futuristic technology.
