Take pleasure in immediately’s movies!

I’m undecided it’s geographically acceptable for a Husky robotic to be this near penguins in Antarctica, however then again, who cares, as a result of I’m all in for robots and penguins.

The undertaking consists of a hybrid (autonomous and remote-controlled) Husky UGV-based robotic named ECHO that carries a wide range of sensors together with a digital camera and a radio-frequency-identification (RFID) antenna to learn RFID tags from chipped penguins (the sort of chips which can be additionally used to chip canines and cats). With the RFID scanner, ECHO will scan penguins to evaluate their breeding standing and survival success. Total, the robotic will have the ability to monitor particular person penguins all through their lifetimes, permitting researchers to assemble knowledge for behavioral and inhabitants dynamics analysis.

Snap has launched a little bit digital camera drone referred to as Pixy. It’s nothing particular, however that’s tremendous: It seems to be to be small, secure, and fairly straightforward to make use of. And I actually admire that this video appears to point out precise footage from the drone, which isn’t implausible, however completely workable.

2 hundred fifty U.S. {dollars} appears a bit steep, however maybe the secure kind issue and ease of use might make it worthwhile.

That is fairly superior—it’s a RoboCup commonplace platform occasion the place the robots are working absolutely autonomously. Watch proper after kickoff because the robotic within the black jersey (closest to the ball) books it off-screen to the left. Because it seems, she (her title is Sarah) went deep into the opponent’s half, the place she camped out by the purpose, in an ideal place to obtain a superb go.

GITAI has already demonstrated its robotic arm within the Worldwide House Station, and now it seems to be like the corporate is on the brink of work outdoors the station as effectively.


Issues that I would like robots to take action that I don’t must: waste-sorting.

Bizarre to have them name the robotic each “she” and “unmanned” in virtually the identical sentence.

At Agility, we make robots which can be made for work. Our experience is marrying design, software program, and {hardware} to construct robots which can be able to doing limitless duties as a part of a blended human-robot workforce.

OK, I actually need to know if Digit can use that step stool in the back of the trailer.

Zimbabwe Flying Labs’ Tawanda Chihambakwe shares how Zimbabwe Flying Labs began utilizing drones for STEM applications and the way drones affect conservation and agriculture.

[ ZFL ]

Robotics has the potential to revolutionize our day by day lives, enabling people to do issues by no means thought potential. SRI is on the forefront of developments which have and can proceed to redefine manufacturing, drugs, security, and a lot extra.

A drone present from CollMot, which appears to make use of a lot bigger drones than anybody else.
