Roke Manor Research Ltd has developed the world's first threat monitoring system for autonomous vehicles that emulates a mammal's conditioned fear-response mechanism.
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.
When an explosive ordnance robot is destroyed, soldiers feel loss, sadness and anger, a researcher discovers.
Time sensitivity improves performance when it comes controlling robotics and remote controlled vehicles, a new study reports.
Researchers have developed a new method that generates fully functioning skeletal muscle tissue, which they incorporated into a biohybrid robot. The robot was able to generate fluid movement and continued muscle function for over a week.
Researchers have created a new system which allows two robotic arms to semi-autonomously drill holes into individual vertebrae. The robosurgery technique will improve accuracy and safety for spinal surgeries.
Researchers used Nash equilibrium game theory and adaptive control to program a robot that can better understand its human user's behavior. This allows the robot to anticipate and respond to the human's movements.
Researchers have harnessed the latest nanofabrication techniques to create bug-shaped robots that are wirelessly powered, able to walk, able to survive harsh environments and tiny enough to be injected through an ordinary hypodermic needle.
