Some of Waseda University's robots include TWENDY-ONE which supports the elderly, WABIAN-2 and KOBIAN bi-pedal robots with emotions, SCHEMA, the robot that can converse with many
In what seems to be the latest step toward Star Trek-like technology, NASA has finished building mechanized legs for the ISS robotic crew member, R2.
Robotics engineers have been increasingly turning to nature for inspiration recently, and researchers have studied the antennae of cockroaches to develop a system that controls a passive sensor.
The first step has been taken towards developing a nanorobot that – in the long run – will enable the targeted transport of medications in the body.
An underwater robot turtle called U-CAT is designed to descend the ocean depths and infiltrate the fascinating scene of a shipwreck.
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...
