Advances in robotics have made it possible to create artificial legs that can duplicate the natural movement of human legs. The research could help improve the mobility of lower-limb amputees.
The NRI is providing researchers with a $3.6 million grant to help develop a new kind of machine intelligence for surgical robotics.
The NIH has awarded three projects $2.4 million over the next five years to develop innovative robots which work cooperatively with people and adapt to changing environments. The robotics will improve human capabilities and enhance medical procedures.
Researchers are attempting to teach two-legged robots a stable, and robust human way of walking.
Researchers develop a new blueprint for touch-sensitive prosthetic limbs. The findings could someday convey real-time sensory information for amputees.
Researchers have discovered a complex and novel visual circuit in the brains of dragonflies. They hope the findings could some day help to improve vision systems for robots.
Researchers develop a steerable needle robot which can penetrate the brain and suction away blood clots.
Researchers use bio-inspired robots to elicit fear response in zebrafish. They also discover the reaction can be modulated by alcohol.
According to a new study, people can be tricked into feeling that an avatar, a generated image of a human figure, is their own body.
Researchers show insect limbs can move without muscles. The finding could provide engineers to find additional ways to improve the control of robotic and prosthetic limbs.
