Robots Assisting with Physical Therapy

Physical therapists are crucial to the design, development, and the operation of sensing technologies and robotic interfaces. Physical therapists are proactive partners, who work with engineers to encourage discoveries that will enhance best practice principles for patients.

HoloBuilder Announces Partnership with Boston Dynamics

Controlled by HoloBuilder's SpotWalk app, the Boston Dynamics' Spot robot can walk job sites autonomously, capturing 360° images that record the progress of a construction project over time.

Worcester Polytechnic Institute Researcher Leads $2.5 Million Study to Develop New Robotics for Recycling Centers

The aim is to develop robotics technology that could be deployed at waste recycling facilities to make them more efficient, but also to improve conditions for workers who sort mixed recyclables by hand.

Human Nurses and Robotic Nurses: A Symbiotic Relationship

Understanding the opportunities created by robotics in healthcare and why human nurses can never be replaced, is significant if both are to work in tandem to complement the tasks performed daily.

Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) Inventory Counts using Drones in Warehouses & Distribution Centers

This, in turn, is driving inventory stakeholders to move their top-tier sites from majority bulk storage to majority racking, and from traditional aisles to very narrow aisles (VNAs). Rack heights have steadily increased from 25 feet, on average, to 35 feet or more.

Rise and Rule of Cobots

The market for cobots has seen an exponential boost in demand; In fact, it is the fastest growing segment of industrial automation today.

Rebel Robot Helps Researchers Understand Human-machine Cooperation

In a new twist on human-robot research, computer scientists at the University of Bristol have developed a handheld robot that first predicts then frustrates users by rebelling against their plans, thereby demonstrating an understanding of human intention.

The Human Touch

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.

Making the Move to Mobile

Using a myriad of technology including sensors, lidar, infrared and machine vision, mobile robots are now able to operate in less stable environments. This means that mobile robots are no longer simple, guided machines.

BionicOpter is the biggest flying robotic insect - Festo in Guinness World Records 2020

The BionicOpter, an ultra-light flying object based on the dragonfly, is named there as the world record winner for biggest flying robotic insect. "It is fascinating what we can learn from nature.

The Surgical Robot that Unfolds Inside the Abdomen

The start-up company NISI (HK) Limited is currently developing a miniature surgical robot that can be inserted though natural openings in the body and only unfolds inside the abdomen.

AI Apocalypse

AI systems are able to learn better ways of exemplifying data without human intervention and build models that match human values. When humans can't decide how to designate values, AI systems could identify configurations and create suitable models by themselves.

Adaptive Robots

It combines high-performance force control, computer vision and advanced AI technologies, which enables the robot to adapt to the complicated environments, and accomplish better "hand-eye" coordination like human does.
