Display of Robotics Researches at Online Exhibition

The online exhibition EXPO21XX is aimed at drawing the attention to the future predictions in the field of industrial and consumer robotics.

Major research facilities around the world including the universities of ANU, Cornell, Essex, Harvard, MIT, Michigan, and many others from countries like Asia and Germany are keen on participating in the online exhibition. They have been involved in incredible projects such as house cleaning robots, cooking robots, self driving robot cars, resilient self-modeling robots, and flying robot swarms by the application of new and inventive technology.

One fascinating aspect of the robotics research is the Robotic Fish, designed by the University of Essex that resembles a real fish. These autonomous robotic systems are capable of some degree of self-sufficiency that enables them to switch lanes with precision and behave appropriately within a school of fish.

The Mobile Robot Lab of the University of Michigan has also contributed to the robotics research with the introduction of the snake-robot, OmniTread that proves useful in both military and security scenarios. In addition, these mobile serpentine robots are used in disaster relief and recovery assistance following earthquake and fire. The OmniTread can operate in tight vents, hard terrains, and successfully climb objects that are four times its size.

Another outstanding open source project, the Open Source Modular Robot, designed at Cornell University allows the rapid implementation of several applications. With a flexible, tough, and competent design, the Modular Robot enables the conversion of a single robotic module into arbitrary and multiple robots.
