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.
When an explosive ordnance robot is destroyed, soldiers feel loss, sadness and anger, a researcher discovers.
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.
A robot developed by Cornell scientists has learned to foresee human actions in order to offer a helping hand; even open a beer.
New insight obtained by studying the gait of cockroaches could provide valuable information on how biological systems stabilize. The research could help to develop more stable robots and provide doctors with better understanding on human gait abnormalities.
