Haptic human-machine interaction improve robots with a human sense of touch

How can humans instantly estimate the slipperiness of a surface and adjust their gripping, for instance when picking up a wet glass? Researchers from Delft University of Technology have, together with French and Australian colleagues, demonstrated that a (radial) strain of the skin of the fingertip is involved in the perception of slipperiness during initial Read more about Haptic human-machine interaction improve robots with a human sense of touch[…]

Haptic technology as non-contact technology to fight against Covid-19

With the importance of non-contact environments growing due to COVID-19, tactile electronic devices using haptic technology are gaining traction as new mediums of communication. Haptic technology is being applied in a wide array of fields such as robotics or interactive displays. haptic gloves are being used for augmented information communication technology. Efficient piezoelectric materials that Read more about Haptic technology as non-contact technology to fight against Covid-19[…]

Researchers develop low-cost artificial robotic skin with high-performance

Modern-day robots are often required to interact with humans intelligently and efficiently, which can be enabled by providing them the ability to perceive touch. However, previous attempts at mimicking human skin have involved bulky and complex electronics, wiring, and a risk of damage. In a recent study, researchers from Japan sidestep these difficulties by constructing Read more about Researchers develop low-cost artificial robotic skin with high-performance[…]

How robotics will transform urban biodiversity and ecosystems

Drones, robots and autonomous systems can transform the natural world in and around cities for people and wildlife. International research, involving over 170 experts and led by the University of Leeds, assessed the opportunities and challenges that this cutting-edge technology could have for urban nature and green spaces. The researchers highlighted opportunities to improve how Read more about How robotics will transform urban biodiversity and ecosystems[…]

Microrobots will one day revolutionise the field of medicine

Robots so tiny that they can manoeuvre through our blood vessels and deliver medications to certain points in the body – researchers have been pursuing this goal for years. Now, scientists at ETH Zurich have succeeded for the first time in building such “micromachines” out of metal and plastic, in which these two materials are Read more about Microrobots will one day revolutionise the field of medicine[…]

Robots learning new tasks from demonstrations

Imagine if robots could learn from watching demonstrations: you could show a domestic robot how to do routine chores or set a dinner table. In the workplace, you could train robots like new employees, showing them how to perform many duties. On the road, your self-driving car could learn how to drive safely by watching Read more about Robots learning new tasks from demonstrations[…]

Autonomous logistic tasks on construction sites

Researchers are working with a mobile robotic platform called Husky A200 that could be used for autonomous logistic tasks on construction sites. This mobile robot is one of many projects pursued by the Fraunhofer Italia Innovation Engineering Center to advance the cause of digitalization in construction and bridge the gap between robotics and the building Read more about Autonomous logistic tasks on construction sites[…]

The smallest 3D printed microrobot

The future of robotics might not be the industrial, metallic kind we are used to. Researchers at Linköping University are making strides in soft robotics, reaching smaller and smaller milestones for the field. We are all familiar with conventional robots, heavy arms of solid metal running on electric motors. Maybe for assembling a car. They Read more about The smallest 3D printed microrobot[…]
