Could a robot serve your morning cuppa?

Could a robot serve your morning cuppa?
Engineers and scientists of DLR (German aerospace centre) in Oberpfaffenhofen are engaged in the robotics of tomorrow, in particular 'the gentle hand'. The human hand is a wonder of nature: what seems apparent to us becomes, on closer inspection or under a technical simulation, a highly complex entity. The complex boards are produced on the Essemtec SMT assembler Paraquda in a highly flexible environment.

Project replicates human musculoskeletal system to advance robotics

Project replicates human musculoskeletal system to advance robotics
EOS has announced its support of the Swiss society Devanthro and the Roboy project at the Technical University of Munich. The idea behind this project, Roboy, is to advance humanoid robotics to the capability of human bodies. The vision is to iteratively improve Roboy models until the performance is comparable to humans in dexterity, robustness and flexibility.

Six-legged robots faster than nature-inspired gait

Six-legged robots faster than nature-inspired gait
When vertebrates run, their legs exhibit minimal contact with the ground. But insects are different. These six-legged creatures run fastest using a three-legged, or "tripod" gait where they have three legs on the ground at all times -- two on one side of their body and one on the other. The tripod gait has long inspired engineers who design six-legged robots, but is it necessarily the fastest and most efficient way for bio-inspired robots to move on the ground?

Controlling individual members of a robot swarm

Controlling individual members of a robot swarm
A trio of researchers with Philips Innovative Technologies in Germany has developed a way to magnetically control individual members of a robot swarm. In their paper published in the journal Science Robotics, Jürgen Rahmer, Christian Stehning and Bernhard Gleich describe their approach and the ways they believe it could be used in practical applications.

Robotic arms could transform your weekly food shop

Robotic arms could transform your weekly food shop
Part-supported through the EU-funded SOMA project, robotics researchers have developed versatile robotic grippers to pick thousands of supermarket items. The grippers were designed to handle the full 48 000 items stocked at Ocado’s - the world’s largest online-only supermarket - highly-automated warehouses whilst ensuring limited damage to a whole shopping list of fragile food products.

Now you can 'build your own' bio-bot

Now you can 'build your own' bio-bot
For the past several years, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have been developing a class of walking "bio-bots" powered by muscle cells and controlled with electrical and optical pulses. Now, Rashid Bashir's research group is sharing the recipe for the current generation of bio-bots. Their how-to paper is the cover article in Nature Protocols.
