Did you catch that? Robot's speed of light communication could protect you from danger

Tue, 11/04/2017 - 10:47
If you were monitoring a security camera and saw someone set down a backpack and walk away, you might pay special attention -- especially if you had been alerted to watch that particular person. According to researchers, this might be a job robots could do better than humans, by communicating at the speed of light and sharing images.

When industrial robots overheat: Continuous fitness check predicts potential machine faults

Tue, 04/04/2017 - 12:44
It keeps a constant eye on the condition of the machine, it carries out diagnostic analyses and it notifies the operator when a part needs to be replaced. The research team has developed an early warning system for industrial assembly, handling and packaging processes. Intelligent sensors continuously collect a wide array of measurement data from inside plant machinery and compare the signal patterns against those for normal operating conditions. If the system detects a difference in the patterns that indicates a potential fault, it immediately notifies the equipment operator about what remedial measures should be taken. This helps engineers to plan maintenance more effectively and protects them from unpleasant surprises and unexpected production losses.

In the future, we will control our mobiles using gestures

Tue, 04/04/2017 - 08:57
Being able to interact with mobile phones and other smart devices using gestures with our hands and fingers in three dimensions would make the digital world more like the real one. A new project will help develop this next-generation interface.

'Doctor' robot could help solve sports-concussion dilemma in rural America

Mon, 03/04/2017 - 21:56
From bustling cities to tiny farming communities, the bright lights of the local stadium are common beacons to the Friday night ritual of high school football. But these stadiums are commonly far from doctors who could quickly diagnose and treat head injuries that have brought so much scrutiny to the sport. A first-of-its-kind study shows the technology exists to ease this dilemma: By using a remote-controlled robot, a neurologist sitting hundreds of miles from the field can evaluate athletes for concussion with the same accuracy as on-site physicians.

Electronic synapses that can learn: Towards an artificial brain?

Mon, 03/04/2017 - 14:02
Researchers have created an artificial synapse capable of learning autonomously. They were also able to model the device, which is essential for developing more complex circuits.

Robot epigenetics: Adding complexity to embodied robot evolution

Mon, 03/04/2017 - 12:33
For the first time, researchers in the field of evolutionary robotics have used physically embodied robots to study epigenetic effects on robot evolution. The study confirms the great importance of taking epigenetic factors into account and provides a conceptual and physical methodology for this type of research.
