Soft, Self-healing Devices Mimic Biological Muscles, Point to Next Generation of Human-like Robotics
The soft devices can perform a variety of tasks, including grasping delicate objects such as a raspberry and a raw egg, as well as lifting heavy objects. HASEL actuators exceed or match the strength, speed and efficiency of biological muscle.
The problem of navigating safely among pedestrians poses unique challenges. These include the increased unpredictability of pedestrians' actions, as well as the lack of navigation guidelines, such as lane lines.
Scott Schrage, University of Nebraska-Lincoln via Phys.org: The technique, which creates a stronger chemical bond between silicone and an unprecedented array of plastics, could greatly reduce the time, complexity and expense needed to produce the microfluidic devices.
Upon detecting a force that results in damage to one of its extremities, the machine immediately begins coordinating the movements of the remaining parts, allowing it to continue operating despite the injury sustained.
Micah Kaats for BIEN: The researchers suggest that basic income may ease the strains of job displacement, provide support for individuals engaged in volunteer or social enterprises, and encourage entrepreneurial risk-taking.
Guy Cherni, Opinion Contributor for The Hill: Surprising though it may seem, the key for increasing drone-based value can only come through increased restriction and regulation of the industry.
The PerceptoCore enables us to have autonomous navigation including autonomous landing and a variety of real time missions done without needing human intervention. In addition, it provides a unique safety layer so even if the communication is cut, the drone still understands
Offline Programming Software is Single Solution for Robotic Hammer Peening of Automotive Stamping Dies
Total programming time for one workpiece, including the time to import a CAD file and create a toolpath, was reduced from 12 hours to only 3.5 hours.
"Good morning, I would like you to meet your legal team." Artificial intelligence has proven useful in scanning and predicting what documents will be relevant to a particular case.
Michael Belfiore for Bloomberg: Makr Shakr's robotic arms pull cocktail ingredients selected via touchscreen or app from a network of bottles above the bar.
2017 - Most Popular Article - To achieve the highest performance, the stepper motor can be treated as a 2 phase brushless servo motor. Current to the motor will then be controlled as a function of the error signal just as with standard servo motors.
The Economist: "Slaughterbots" is fiction. The question Dr Russell poses is, "how long will it remain so?" For military laboratories around the planet are busy developing small, autonomous robots for use in warfare, both conventional and unconventional.
Programming a robot movement that must follow a volume in space is a complicated thing to do. We were able to do it with the path recording function of the FT 300.
David Z. Morris for Fortune: Mountain View-based Knightscope has said in a statement that the robot "was not brought in to clear the area around the San Francisco SPCA of homeless individuals," but only to "serve and protect the SPCA."
Robotics requires very high quality hardware to maintain the accuracy and durability of its application and function. Using a domestic manufacturer will help alleviate any communication problems between the hardware supplier and the OEM as the product is engineered
