Willow Garage spinoff called Unbounded Robotics announced Sunday it will begin shipping a one-armed, open source robot called UBR-1 in mid-2014.
This past spring, researchers with the Virginia Tech College of Engineering unveiled Cyro, a robotic jellyfish roughly the size of a full grown man. The robot borrowed swimming techniques from actual jellyfish and could one day be used by the military to autonomously survey the waters, map the sea floors and even monitor the changing climate.
Gantry manufacturer Macron Dynamics has introduced a new line of heavy-duty X/Z linear robots to their line of linear robotics.
Envirosight's new maneuverable launcher with pan/tilt camera helps diagnose lateral blockages and find gas line cross bores. Randolph, NJ (PRWEB) October
Robot and technology enthusiasts of any age, attend a satellite showing of the Robot Film Festival. (PRWEB) October 16, 2013 In conjunction with the
Researchers at North Carolina State University are looking to bugs, namely cockroaches, to help them with a mapping problem. The researchers are looking to map tricky spaces, such as collapsed buildings, by letting a swarm of cyber cockroaches, dubbed biobots, explore such areas.
researchers at Michigan Technological University are making a bionic foot that could make an amputee’s walk in the park feel, well, like a walk in the park.
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...
