Researchers attempt to improve robot behavior by means of perception models closer to those of humans. One of the experiments involves a robot simulation in which an agent has to discriminate between what we could call an acne pimple and a bite or lump on the skin.
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.
A new study reports on how robots programmed to use simultaneous localization and mapping are able to improve their object recognition algorithms.
Researchers have developed a 3D printed prototype for a bionic eye. The team successfully printed an array of light receptors onto a hemispherical surface. This advance could revolutionize restoring vision to those who have lost their sight.
