Engineers from the University of Illinois and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are a step closer to human-operated robotics with their two-legged unit, named Little Hermes
The Skin-On interface, developed by researchers at the University of Bristol in partnership with Telecomm ParisTech and Sorbonne University, mimics human skin in appearance but also in sensing resolution
Scientists have teamed up to develop a soft, flexible artificial skin made of silicone and electrodes
Researchers want to ensure that robots that are used in our working environment are safer, but also more sustainable
Two frameworks could make it faster and easier to teach robots basic skills
Such soft robots contain tremendous potential for future applications as they adapt to dynamic environments and are well-suited to closely interact with humans
Powered by a chemical reaction controlled by microfluidics, 3D-printed ‘octobot’ has no electronics
“How does it ‘feel’ to interact behaviorally with a machine?” To answer that question, scientists created a virtual partner that can elicit emotional responses from its human partner in real-time.
Discovery could lead to significant advances in health care, transportation, electronic communication, and other areas.
Scientists are developing new technologies for making computers recognize not just traditional commands, but also non-verbal ones
