Six-legged robots get closer to nature

Fri, 09/03/2018 - 09:54
A study has uncovered new ways of driving multi-legged robots by means of a two-level controller. The proposed controller uses a network of so-called non-linear oscillators that enables the generation of diverse gaits and postures, which are specified by only a few high-level parameters. The study inspires new research into how multi-legged robots can be controlled, including in the future using brain-computer interfaces.

Scientists help robots understand humans with 20 questions game idea

Wed, 07/03/2018 - 09:52
Information scientists have borrowed from the popular game "20 Questions," to make an important step towards helping robots maintain continuous and purposeful conversation with humans. They have developed an optimal strategy for asking a series of yes/no questions that rapidly achieves the best answer.

Researchers want to teach computers to learn like humans

Mon, 05/03/2018 - 09:30
A new study describes a new cloud-based learning platform for artificial intelligence (A.I.) that teaches machines to learn like humans.

Hail technology: Deep learning may help predict when people need rides

Thu, 01/03/2018 - 10:36
Computers may better predict taxi and ride sharing service demand, paving the way toward smarter, safer and more sustainable cities, according to an international team of researchers.

Robotic spiders and bees: The rise of bioinspired microrobots

Thu, 01/03/2018 - 09:49
Jumping robot spiders and swarms of robotic bees sounds like the stuff of science fiction, but researchers are already working on such projects.

Personalizing wearable devices

Wed, 28/02/2018 - 14:44
When it comes to soft, assistive devices the wearer and the robot need to be in sync. But every human moves a bit differently and tailoring the robot's parameters for an individual user is a time-consuming and inefficient process. Now, researchers have developed an efficient machine learning algorithm that can quickly tailor personalized control strategies for soft, wearable exosuits.

Don't want to lose a finger? Let a robot give a hand

Wed, 28/02/2018 - 13:11
In an effort to minimize injury and let carpenters focus on design and other bigger-picture tasks, a team has created AutoSaw, a system that lets you customize different items that can then be constructed with the help of robots.

Smart heat control of microchips

Wed, 28/02/2018 - 11:25
Technological progress in the electronics sector, such as higher speeds, reduced costs, and smaller sizes, result in entirely new possibilities of automation and industrial production, without which “Industry 4.0” would not be feasible. In particular, miniaturization advanced considerably in the last years. Meanwhile, physical flow of a few electrons is sufficient to execute a software. But this progress also has its dark side. Processors for industrial production of less than 10 nm in dimension are highly sensitive. By specific overloading through incorrect control commands, hackers might initiate an artificial aging process that will destroy the processors within a few days. To defend such attacks on industrial facilities in the future, researchers are now working on a smart self-monitoring system.

Novel 3-D printing method embeds sensing capabilities within robotic actuators

Wed, 28/02/2018 - 08:53
Inspired by our bodies' sensory capabilities, researchers have developed a platform for creating soft robots with embedded sensors that can sense movement, pressure, touch, and even temperature.
