Army-funded researchers created nanosized robots that could enable locomotion, novel metamaterial design and high-fidelity sensors.
Robots are widely used to build cars, paint airplanes and sew clothing in factories, but the assembly of microscopic components, such as those for biomedical applications, has not yet been automated. Lasers could be the solution.
Blaize today fully unveiled the Blaize AI Studio offering, the industry’s first open and code-free software platform to span the complete edge AI operational workflow from idea to development, deployment and management.
iFROG, an amphibious robot capable of working in teams to clean and inspect monopiles above water level and up to 60 metres below (~6 bar), has successfully completed trials at the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult’s National Renewable Energy Centre in Blyth.
The UK has achieved the world’s first blade walk by a robot on an offshore wind turbine, thanks to BladeBUG and the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult.
Using live animal models, engineers at Purdue University have demonstrated that a rectangular robot as minuscule as a few human hairs can move throughout a colon by performing back-flips.
Optomed and AEYE Health have agreed to enter clinical and commercial collaboration to introduce an AI fundus camera Aurora AEYE.
A Cornell University-led collaboration has created the first microscopic robots that incorporate semiconductor components, allowing them to be controlled - and made to walk - with standard electronic signals.
A team of researchers, under the guidance of the University of Michigan, has demonstrated a novel rechargeable zinc battery that combines with the structure of a robot to deliver relatively more energy—similar to how biological fat reserves preserve energy in animals.
The principles of origami—Japanese art of folding—could help unleash the power of the smallest robots, thereby improving agility, speed, and control in machines measuring just about a centimeter.
