A new football-sized underwater robot developed by researchers at the MIT could discreetly follow alongside a ship and perform ultrasound scans to search for smuggled contraband.
Natural disasters are often compounded by the power failures and cell tower outages that they cause, but a team of engineers led by Nina Mahmoudian of Michigan Technological University is developing a new team of robots that could solve these issues, assisting search-and-rescue operations in the process.
Studying the movements of creatures in the natural world is very useful to robotics as the latest version of a robotic octopus from Greece shows. But real octopodes could also learn from their robotic cousin, which uses its octopus-inspired anatomy to propel itself in new ways.
Hurley Research LLC today announced the launch of the Droidles Project, the first ever connected network of autonomous robots that evolve together.
The Grandville High School RoboDawgs are taking over center court at the Rivertown Crossings Mall the weekend of October 18-19 to show the public just how creative high school students can be.
The service robotics market report talks about the Porter’s five force analysis of the service robotics market as well as the industry analysis along with the value chain and supply chain analysis.
Mobile robots could be much more useful in homes, if they could locate people, places and objects. One way robots can “sense” what is around them is through the use of small ultra-high frequency radio-frequency identification tags.
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...
A ballbot is a mobile robot that moves and balances on one wheel. It is dynamically stable and capable of a larger range of movement than other types of robots, because it can maneuver better in tighter spaces. It runs on the same principles as those of an inverted pendulum, It is thought that this robot could make great personal or service robots in the future. Currently, ballbot robots can only traverse smooth surfaces, but it is thought that models could be easily adapted to move on rough...
An android, also known as a synthetic organism, is a robot designed to look like a human, with emphasis on realistic skin and movement. The name “android” has been used in science fiction stories in many different ways. The Oxford English Dictionary found that the earliest use of the word Android was most likely in Ephraim Chambers' Cyclopaedia, which referred to St. Albertus Magnus’s alleged automaton as Androides. In US patents, the term first appears in 1863 referring to small...
Robotics is a branch of technology that deals with the design, construction, operation and application of robots and autonomous systems, as well as the computer systems that power such devices, including control, sensory feedback and information processing. Robots are typically designed as automated machines that can take the place of humans. Most robotic machines can be seen in manufacturing lines, such as widely used in the auto industry. Robots are also utilized to replace humans in...
