Nanotechnology has brought us many advances such as electronic skin (e-skin) and electronic eye implants (e-eyes), and now, a research team from Berkeley Lab and the University of California Berkeley is on the verge of creating electronic whiskers.
Before most humans turn one year old – walking appears to be a complete mystery. However, not long after we take our first steps, walking around becomes a mundane mode of transportation we rarely give a second thought to.
Scientists have created a network called RoboEarth for robots to pass on information they learn to one another, essentially creating a collective cloud mind.
Back on December 20-21, 2013, at the Miami Speedway in Homestead, Florida, 16 teams from around the world submitted robots in the DARPA Robotics Challenge Trials. This challenge was created to observe the state of robotics and their potential use in disaster response.
The Roomba, sold by iRobot, is a name used for a series of autonomous robot vacuum cleaners that were first introduced into the market it 2002. There have been four versions or generations of Roomba since its creation, with over eight million sales throughout the world. It is capable of moving on its own and avoiding obstacles that are present in the average household, as well as capable of avoiding stairs and other drop offs. It is equipped with a computer chip and the Roomba Open Interface,...
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...
