The Internet of Bodies Is Here: Tackling new challenges of technology governance
Recent technological advancements have ushered in a new era of the “internet of bodies” (IoB), with an unprecedented number of connected devices and sensors being affixed to or even implanted and ingested into the human body.
Image processing algorithm allows indoor drones to fly autonomously
A research team from Japan has developed a single-camera machine vision algorithm, making it possible for lightweight hovering indoor robots to guide themselves by identifying and interpreting reference points on a tiled floor.
Where Is Robotics Heading? Perspectives From iRobot (Colin Angle), Stanley Black & Decker, And Robots In Service Of The Environment
The dream of robots and intelligent machines that can perform a wide array of tasks has been around in the common visions and fantasies of people for centuries.
Researchers give robots intelligent sensing abilities to carry out complex tasks
Picking up a can of soft drink may be a simple task for humans, but this is a complex task for robots—it has to locate the object, deduce its shape, determine the right amount of strength to use, and grasp the object without letting it slip.
A transparent artificial muscle to enable camouflaging in soft robots
The ability to become transparent is a considerable evolutionary advantage, as it allows animals to blend in with their environment, avoid predators and mask their movements. Robots with similar capabilities could be of great value for a number of applications, for instance, aiding surveillance and research that involves observing animals in their natural habitat.
Robotic gripper with soft, sensitive fingers can handle cables with unprecedented dexterity
For humans, it can be challenging to manipulate thin flexible objects like ropes, wires, or cables. But if these problems are hard for humans, they are nearly impossible for robots. As a cable slides between the fingers, its shape is constantly changing, and the robot’s fingers must be constantly sensing and adjusting the cable’s position and motion.
NVIDIA Launches New Ampere Architecture, Infrastructure, Robotics And Automotive Technologies At GTC 2020
NVIDIA rolled out its announcements in nine video chapters and I thought it made sense to roll out my coverage of GTC 2020 aligned with most of those eight chapters.
How coronavirus set the stage for a techno-future with robots and AI
Now, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the idea of relying on computers and robotics, and checking out groceries by simply picking them off the shelf doesn’t seem so peculiar after all.
Top VCs discuss how COVID-19 is impacting robotics
In the space of several weeks, COVID-19 has transformed countless industries and will continue to do so in ways we can only imagine.
Developing AI robots for healthcare
A robot that can measure the body temperature of people, for example in the waiting rooms of the hospital, is under development by researchers at Umeå University and the University Hospital of Umeå.
New robot does superior job sampling blood
A Rutgers-led team has created a blood-sampling robot that performed as well or better than people, according to the first human clinical trial of an automated blood drawing and testing device.
