Engineers at LJMU have gone out and bought a dog!
Zhi Zheng's robot is skilled at Tai Chi, and her research team hopes it will soon lead a class of older adults at a local community center. Her robot is more than a cute companion. It can help improve cognitive function and provide insights about how people interact with robots in various settings.
Researchers have examined the advantages of employing soft robotic systems and humanoid musculoskeletal robots as bioreactor platforms to create clinically effective tendon constructions.
“Hey there. Allow me to introduce you to your new companion, Orbit, a robot you can play with and listen to. Not only can Orbit hear you, they can feel you too.”
People act and behave in ways that other humans identify as human-like. Is it feasible to recreate human characteristics on a machine, such as a robot? Researchers at IIT-Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) attempted to address that issue by including a nonverbal Turing test into a human–robot interaction challenge.
The body image is not always precise or realistic, but it is a crucial piece of information that affects how individuals behave in the world, as any athlete or fashion-conscious person can attest to.
A virtual robotic limb system that can be controlled by users’ feet in a virtual world as additional or supernumerary limbs has been created by research teams at the University of Tokyo, Keio University, and the Toyohashi University of Technology in Japan.
Man, machine, or both? Humanoid robots are no longer just science fiction. They are reality. igus® has been researching humanoid robotics for some time now and presented a prototype of its motion plastics bot at Hannover Messe 2022. The igus motion plastics bot is a humanoid robot that combines the advantages of high-performance plastics and Low Cost Automation.
Robots, like humans, are unable to see through barriers. Robots require assistance from time to time to go where they need to go.
Machines can defeat the finest chess player in the world, but robots cannot manage a chess piece like a baby. Artificial grippers lack the precise tactile sense of the human fingertip, which is utilized to guide our hands as humans pick up and handle items, which contributes to their lack of dexterity.
