Engineers have create a robot that learns to visually predict how its partner robot will behave, displaying a glimmer of empathy.
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.
Researchers have developed a system that combines a brain-computer interface and a robotic arm that responds to the actual intentions of treated patients.
The following seven robotic systems are either currently being deployed or developed for the fight against the coronavirus.
Scientists have proposed a new principle by which active matter systems can spontaneously order, without need for higher level instructions or even programmed interaction among the agents.
Experts working at the intersection of robotics, machine learning, and physics-based simulation share how computer simulation could accelerate the development of "smart robots" which "might interact with humans"
Researchers have shown that gait training using robotic exoskeletons improved motor function in adolescents and young adults with acquired brain injury.
Researchers have enabled a quadriplegic man to control a pair of prosthetic arms with his mind.
Robots may have some of these soft skills thought to be vital for successful leadership as they enable leaders to motivate, unite and inspire their employees.
Scientists have developed an easy way to make millirobots by coating objects with a glue-like magnetic spray.
Exoskeletal-assisted walking is safe, feasible, and effective in individuals disabled by spinal cord injury.
Designers who use ethics to shape better companion robots will end up making better humans, too, say UNSW researchers.
Scientists are researching salamanders unique superpower - they can regenerate their spinal cords and regain full functionality.
