In May 2021, Ford opened the doors of its new Robotics Building as part of the University of Michigan. This massive structure is four stories tall and covers 134,000 square feet.
Toyota Research Institute Showcases Latest Robotics Research Aimed at Amplifying Human Ability in the Home
TRI's robotics research is guided by the Japanese notion of Ikigai, a powerful idea that every person's life should have meaning and purpose. TRI's human centered approach turns typical AI philosophy on its head.
In response to the growing demand for improved robotic assistance in industry sectors such as retail and light industry, we created MARS, the Mobile Arm Robot System, a robot with more sophisticated autonomous navigation and inspection capabilities.
This method teaches a robot how to perform a single example task, while simulation addresses the problem in a more statistical way, conducting tens of thousands of virtual experiments to find the right solution for performing that task.
In this post, we've gathered insights from our Field Robotics Test Manager here at Clearpath, Martin Cote. Keep reading to find out what he wish he'd known about field research.
How can you print something larger than the printer itself? That's the problem researchers Xu Zhang, Mingyang Li, Quang-Cuong Pham, and others set out to solve at the Singapore Centre for 3D Printing...
IDC was briefed to develop a humanoid robot that was capable of typing with fingers like a human to mimic the typing of a user, at a typing speed of 3-4 keys/second.
Given the name Cheetah 3 by its developers, the robot, which weighs less than 100 pounds, is roughly the size and shape of a medium-sized dog. It's the ideal solution for crawling through narrow spaces, traversing dangerous obstacles and inspecting inaccessible areas.
We have created electronic circuitry that is soft and stretchable and capable of spontaneously reforming electrical connections when the material is cut, torn, or punctured. It is made of microscopic droplets of liquid metal that are suspended in a soft silicone rubber.
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.
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
We picture a reality where they have safe robots in the home to help lift heavy pots off the stove or heavy baskets off the floor, or walking robots that can carry groceries home or carry luggage.
Can a robot have a better bedside manner than a doctor? Perhaps. But a humanoid robot packed with the latest technology can certainly spend more time with a child in the hospital, become his or her confidant and utilize technological abilities that exceed humans.
A self-contained soft actuator three times stronger than natural muscle, without the need of externals, signals a breakthrough in soft robotics.
Reuters: The Siemens research center at Beijing's Tsinghua University would focus on combined mechanics and electronics, human-robot collaboration and the application of artificial intelligence in robotic controllers, the German firm said.

Waypoint Robotics/Productive Robotics omnidirectional 7 DoF mobile manipulator combines the easiest to use, most capable omnidirectional autonomous mobile robot with the simplest and most flexible 7 axis collaborative robot arm. The Vector AMR's omnidirectional mobility enables fast, precise docking in any direction or orientation so the OB7 can perform accurate and precise grasping or picking tasks, taking full advantage of the cobots' 7 degrees of freedom (7 DoF) and superior dexterity. It can be powered using Waypoint's EnZone wireless charger that provides on-demand energy and opportunity charging for longer run times. Workers can use this mobile platform to perform repetitive tasks such as machine tending, quality assurance sampling, material replenishment, packaging, and many others, so they can focus on the high skilled jobs for which they are uniquely qualified. It has never been easier or more cost effective to deploy a mobile manipulator for manufacturing and logistics applications.
