Scientists have developed an algorithm to help a robot find efficient motion plans to ensure physical safety of its human counterpart.
Bionics & Robotics
The fields of robotics and bionics have witnessed several advancements in recent years. We cover the latest technology breakthroughs of surgical robotics, bionic hearing and vision, of smart prosthetics, of micro-robots that travel through bodily fluids to deliver medication exactly to where it’s needed and the development of exoskeletons that help paralyzed people to walk again.
Students at TU Eindhoven developed the world's first interactive drone that can transmit emotions.
Researchers have developed an artificial skin that senses force through ionic signals and also changes color from yellow to a bruise-like purple, providing a visual cue that damage has occurred.
Experts at Kessler Foundation led the first pilot randomized controlled trial of robotic-exoskeleton assisted exercise rehabilitation effects on mobility, cognition, and brain connectivity in people with substantial MS-related disability.
Researchers have designed a telepresence robot that enables people suffering from COVID-19 to talk to their loved ones.
Researchers have shown that a group of small autonomous, self-learning robots can adapt easily to changing circumstances. They connected the simple robots in a line, after which each individual robot taught itself to move forward as quickly as possible.
Scientists have developed a more accurate navigation system that allows robots to better negotiate busy clinical environments in general and emergency departments more specifically.
Neurolutions IpsiHand exoskeleton uniquely leverages brain-computer interface technology for chronic stroke rehabilitation
Researchers have discovered a new law of physics that accounts for that accounts for elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) friction, which should advance a wide range of robotic technologies.
Researchers have repaired traumatic injuries to the skin and bones in a rat model using bioprinting during surgery.
Scientists at The German Primate Center want to use genetic engineering methods to improve cochlear implants.
