A school of fish is a remarkable display of synchronicity. But even years of research have not resolved a fundamental question—do fish swim in schools to save energy?
The concept of a swarm of robots taking instructions and painting a picture might seem unrealistic but a new study reported in Frontiers in Robotics and AI, an open-access journal, has demonstrated that it is achievable.
Using advanced robotics, a research group has demonstrated that the speed of animals is essential for collective behavioral patterns, and that, eventually, it is the faster creatures that have the strongest impact on group-level behavior.
Coral polyps that constitute corals found in the ocean are small soft creatures with tentacles and a stem. They nourish the corals and help the corals to survive by producing self-made currents from the motion of their soft bodies.
At Michigan State University a team of engineers has designed and created an innovative humanoid hand that could help develop a robot with a soft touch.
Researchers have created a sensory integrated artificial brain system that simulates biological neural networks, which can work using a power-efficient neuromorphic processor such as Intel’s Loihi chip.
Kitchen robots are famous foresight for the future. However, if an existing robot attempts to pick up a kitchen staple like a shiny knife or a clear measuring cup, it may not be successful.
New jellyfish-inspired soft robots developed by engineering researchers at North Carolina State University and Temple University have been found to outswim their real-life counterparts.
A team of researchers from the University of Bath, working together with Ninja Theory, a game development studio, has developed a solution to the difficulties involved in creating realistic VR sword fights: Touché—a data-driven, machine learning-based computer model.
Northwestern University researchers have developed a family of soft materials that imitates living creatures.
