A research project at Harvard aims to demonstrate an autonomous multi-robot systems capable of the construction of 3D structures. The hardware comprises a mobile robot and specialized passive blocks; the robot is able to manipulate blocks to build desired structures, and can maneuver on these structures as well as in unstructured environments. To illustrate the robot’s ability to perform complex tasks combining these functions, they demonstrate it autonomously building a ten-block structure significantly larger than itself. The full paper can be found here .
ROBOTICS will be a major driver for global job creation over the next five years. The announcement is based on a study conducted by the market research firm, Metra Martech, "Positive Impact of Industrial Robots on Employment", which was published on Thursday in Tokyo.
From the video its hard to tell what technology is behind this robot but heres the Google translation of the press release: Communication robots for the elderly "Nodding Kabochan SMILE SUPPLEMENT ROBOT" Launched mid-November! Pumpkin is not nodding, communication robots for the elderly in the shape of a little boy. The reaction of five sensors that are built, or nodding, He makes a variety of chat depending on the season. To take advantage of robot technology, the elderly, who also receive care, How to care for, and further engaged in the business who care, safe delivery and a smile will help to improve life.
