An outline of ongoing work by Hi there Robotic, UIUC, UW, and Robots for Humanity to empower Henry Evans’ independence by way of using the cellular manipulator Stretch.

And naturally, you may learn extra about this challenge in this month’s problem of Spectrumjournal.

[ Hello Robot ]

At KIMLAB, we’ve got a singular approach of carving Halloween pumpkins! Our MOMO (Cellular Object Manipulation Operator) is supplied with PAPRAS arms that includes prosthetic fingers, permitting it to make use of human instruments.


This new haptic system from CMU appears truly wonderful, though watching the haptic arrays pulse is wigging me out somewhat bit for some purpose.

HEBI Robotics produces a platform for robotic improvement. Our long run imaginative and prescient is to make it straightforward and sensible for any employee, technician, farmer, and many others. to create robots as wanted. Right now the platform is utilized by researchers around the globe and HEBI is utilizing it to resolve difficult automation duties associated to inspections and upkeep.

Can I’ve a pet T-Rex? Is a brief interdisciplinary portrait documentary that includes paleontologist and Kod*lab postdoc, Aja Mia Carter and Kod*lab robotics researchers, Postdoc Wei-Hsi Chen and PhD scholar J.Diego Caporale. Dr. Chen applies the artwork of origami to make a hopping robotic whereas Mr. Caporale provides a level of freedom to the backbone of a quadruped robotic to interrogate concepts about twisting and locomotion. An professional within the evolution of tetrapod spines from 380 millon years in the past, Dr. Carter remains to be motivated by her childhood dream for a pet T-Rex, however how can these robotics researchers get her nearer to her imaginative and prescient?
