If robots are capable of rapidly adjusting their dampness, stiffing and dynamics, like octopi are, the added flexibility can make for more versatile robotics than ever.
The awards recognize outstanding individuals from all over the world. Since the award's inception in 1977, it has been bestowed upon 126 robotics leaders from 17 different nations. This year the awards will be presented in the categories of leadership and technology.
The watery creation could lead to soft robots that mimic sea animals like the octopus, which can walk underwater and bump into things without damaging them.
While the obvious benefit of robotic technology is to automate business processes, there are an abundance of opportunities for robotic technology to improve the lives of humans without engaging in automation.
Homecare robots are already the primary driver of revenue for the wider consumer robotics market. This trend is expected to increase, following a banner year of revenue and shipment growth from floor care market leader iRobot.
Robotic surgery is deemed by and large safer than open surgery. The hospital stay is shorter, reducing the risk of infection; pain and discomfort is reduced; recovery time is faster; and blood loss and transfusions are lessened.
Combat troops, miners, fire-fighters, EMS and disaster personnel are among those who can benefit from Draper's new approach to developing exosystems.
Stairs are still unsurmountable obstacles for many robots. Yet a young team at ETH Zurich is building a vehicle designed to negotiate steps with ease - by hopping.
Ideally, hospitals and clinics would be able to justify the cost of a new robot based on scientific studies on its effectiveness and business cases on its usability. But for new platforms, these are very scarce.
DJI's new SDK for Windows empowers developers to build native Windows applications that can remotely control DJI drones including autonomous flight and real-time data streaming.
$820 Million in Series C Investment Values Company at $5 Billion, Catapulting UBTECH to World's Most Valuable Consumer Robotics Company
A question of torque - Inspection robots for pipes and ducts, rescue robots in disaster areas, or humanoid robots - they all have one thing in common: They are mobile robots that aid humans.
Amazon has created more than 3,500 full-time jobs in Massachusetts and invested over $400 million in the state since 2011, from customer fulfillment infrastructure to research facilities
Encompassing a mere four square centimeters and holding more than 5 billion transistors, the chip also features 1 million digital neurons that function via 256 million digital synapses. It's hard to ignore the chip's parallels to the human brain
There is no magic bullet for robot security. They are simply devices executing code, which are just as likely to be compromised as any other device in an organisation.
