Paving the way toward cell-sized robots

Paving the way toward cell-sized robots
An electricity-conducting, environment-sensing, shape-changing machine the size of a human cell? Is that even possible? Cornell physicists Paul McEuen and Itai Cohen not only say yes, but they’ve actually built the 'muscle' for one. With postdoctoral researcher Marc Miskin at the helm, the team has made a robot exoskeleton that can rapidly change its shape upon sensing chemical or thermal changes in its environment.

Mapping out the airspace for the autonomous world of drones

Mapping out the airspace for the autonomous world of drones
Soon it may not only be our roads that are congested. The growing popularity of drones, whether for recreational or commercial use, has highlighted the challenge of managing traffic in low altitude airspace. Moreover, in the future autonomous world, the traffic of both airborne and ground vehicles will need to be well orchestrated to ensure safety aswell as efficiency.

Sensor helps guide robotic vehicles along invisible magnetic tracks

Sensor helps guide robotic vehicles along invisible magnetic tracks
A new magnetic guide sensor capable of detecting and reporting the position of a magnetic field along its horizontal axis, has been introduced by Roboteq. The sensor is intended for line following robotic applications, using adhesive magnetic tape to form a track guide on the floor. Measuring only 165x35x35mm, the MGSW1600 is built into a rugged, watertight, all-metal enclosure. It uses an 8-pin waterproof M12-type connector for its power supply and IO signals.
