Taking their inspiration from nature, researchers have designed a low-cost robotic arm that mimics the strength and flexibility of an elephant’s trunk.
Soft robots offer various benefits such as different movement patterns, and friendly interaction with humans, flexible actuating tactics.
Arctoris Ltd, an Oxford-based technology company operating a fully automated drug discovery platform, celebrated its 5th anniversary on the 4th of February. Over the past five years, Arctoris has grown from a technology startup to a globally operating company delivering integrated drug discovery projects with partners on three continents from its headquarters in Oxford and its Asia-Pacific hub in Singapore. On the occasion of its 5th anniversary, Arctoris unveiled its new and expanded, next-generation robotic platform, Ulysses.
The Shadow Robot Dexterous Hand is a robot hand, with size, shape and movement capabilities similar to those of a human hand. To give the robotic hand the ability to learn how to manipulate objects researchers from WMG, University of Warwick, have developed new AI algorithms.
Researchers have developed artificial intelligence technology that brings together imaging, processing, machine learning and memory in one electronic chip, powered by light.
Developed by ETSI in the 90’s, the DECT™ standard (Digital enhanced cordless telecommunications) is implemented in more than a billion short-range communication devices around the world.
The technology is...
Simple and interacting robots, in large numbers, can possibly unlock stealthy capabilities for realizing complicated tasks. However, it has been rather challenging to get these robots to achieve a real hive-like mind of coordination.
Researchers at the University of Bristol’s Intangible Realities Laboratory (IRL) and ETH Zurich have made use of virtual reality and artificial intelligence algorithms to study chemical change in detail.
Waves, winds, currents, wakes from passing boats and eddies swirling around structures make water one of the most complex environments for experienced boat captains, let alone robots.
A study finds that wearing a commercially available exoskeleton does not turn one into a superhero. Researchers have tested a mechanical arm attached to a harness, which is usually worn by workers to help them lug heavy objects hands-free.
