Seasat Blazed The Trail For Many Mission
2013-06-28 05:27:14

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Even if they don't last long, history tends to look fondly upon trailblazers. Thirty-five years ago this week, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) launched an experimental satellite called Seasat, with the mission to study Earth and its seas. An unexpected malfunction ended the mission after just 106 days, leading some to look on the satellite as a failure. Seasat is still in orbit, however, shining in the night sky at magnitude...

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Let´s admit it, we all have a thing for robots. Whether we grew up watching Rosie take care of the Jetsons´ household or Bender engage in all manner of debauchery normally reserved for humans, robots have been a part of our pop culture and even everyday work lives. As such, it´s only fair to give them their due and honor them in an annual, vote-based popularity contest. Enter the Robot Hall of Fame, a contest...

New algorithms allow an autonomous robotic plane to dodge obstacles in a subterranean parking garage, without the use of GPS. For decades, academic and industry researchers have been working on control algorithms for autonomous helicopters – robotic helicopters that pilot themselves, rather than requiring remote human guidance. Dozens of research teams have competed in a series of autonomous-helicopter challenges posed by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online MIT researchers have completed a series of flight tests in which an autonomous robotic plane successfully navigates its way among pillars in a parking garage. For the past two years, MIT's Robust Robotics Group has been challenging itself to build robotic planes that are able to navigate indoors without the use of GPS. In 2011, the team developed an algorithm for calculating a plane's trajectory and presented it at the International...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists have engineered a soft autonomous robot that crawls across surfaces similar to how an earthworm moves. The robot developed by researchers at MIT, Harvard University and Seoul National University is made almost entirely of soft materials, giving it the ability to be stepped on and inch away without a dent. The "Meshworm" robot has an "artificial muscle" that was created from wire made of nickel and titanium. Researchers...
