Robot Being Taught Language Through Artificial Neuronal Network
2013-02-20 05:05:12

[ Watch the Video: Simplified Brain Allows iCub Robot To Learn Language ] Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Robots aren´t actually “taught” but rather are programmed. There have been attempts to create a system that can allow robots to “learn” but it is still a matter of essentially programming the new skills. However, a new artificial brain system could enable robots to learn language, which could very well be the key to teaching...

Robots Learn To Work Better With Humans Thanks To New Cross Training Technique
2013-02-12 11:44:26

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists are investigating whether studies designed to help train people could also be applied to teams of both robots and humans, in a technique known as cross-training. MIT researchers will be presenting a paper at the International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction in Tokyo about the results of experiments they carried out with the cross-training technique. Researchers have been undertaking various efforts to try and...

[Watch Video: A Robot Being Driven By A Moth] Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Robots have been used to handle a number of dirty chores for human beings in the past, some of which include looking for and cleaning environmental spills. Robotic engineers have also looked towards other animals and insects for inspiration when building out these autonomous machines. Tokyo researchers have now brought these two elements together in a new study published in...

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,...

Ballbot
2013-09-24 16:10:08

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...

Android

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...

The History Of Robotics
2013-09-08 10:48:36

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...
