Latest Autonomous robot Stories
The National Science Foundation (NSF) will showcase a broad range of NSF-funded projects at this year's USA Science & Engineering Festival at the Washington Convention Center this weekend.
If a robot in combat has a hardware malfunction or programming glitch that causes it to kill civilians, do we blame the robot, or the humans who created and deployed it?
Researchers have now developed a mobile robot that can roam uncharted terrain and simultaneously map it – all thanks to an algorithm toolbox.
A combination of two algorithms developed at MIT allows autonomous robots to execute tasks much more efficiently — and move more predictably.
Aisha Sohail describes the Neuromorphics Lab at CELEST and the work of building artificial brains to be used in robotics.
There isn't a radio-control handset in sight as several small robots roll briskly up the hallways of an office building - working by themselves and communicating only with one another, the vehicles divide up a variety of exploration tasks â€“ and within minutes have transmitted a detailed floor map to humans nearby.
ANN ARBOR, Mich., Dec. 3, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Teaming with the University of Michigan, SoarTech was recently awarded first place and $750,000 at the first Multi Autonomous Ground-robotic International Challenge (MAGIC 2010).
The new Premier League season has begun and in Madrid the World Cup celebrations are barely over, yet according to research in WIREs Cognitive Science, the world's best players may soon be facing a new challenge from football playing robots, which their creators claim will be able to play and beat a human team.
Researchers conduct experiment as part of what is believed to be the first detailed examination of robot deception.
A mobile robot is an automatic machine that is capable of moving in many environments and is the focus of research in many major universities. These robots are also used in the military, in security, household environments, and in business industries. They are classified by the type of environment that they are built to work in or by the way the move. Classifications include Unmanned Arial Vehicles or UAVs, autonomous underwater vehicles or AUVs, wheeled robots, and legged robots. Mobile...
Vehicular automation uses artificial intelligence and mechatronics to aid an operator in controlling a robotic vehicle. Some of these vehicles are labeled “smart” or “intelligent,” while others that are more capable of moving on their own are known as “semi-autonomous.” Those robots that rely only on autonomous movement are simply known as “autonomous” or “robotic.” There are several types of vehicles that use automation to operate and the capabilities of these robots have...
