GE’s project was one of eight funded by the U.S. Army to advance autonomous, off-road navigation capabilities for military ground vehicles.
Adaptive locomotive modality, or the ability to move in different ways, is integral to extreme terrain exploration on the Moon and Mars.
Droidlet enables researchers to build robots that accomplish tasks either in the real world or in simulated environments like Minecraft or Habitat.
Cassie completed the 5K at the Oregon State University campus in just over 53 minutes on a single battery charge.
The Covariant Brain is a “universal AI that enables robots to see, reason, and act autonomously in the real world.”
Guided by a set program that autonomously switched between off, low, medium, and high pressures, the robotic hand was able to press the buttons on the controller to successfully complete the first level of Super Mario Bros. in less than 90 seconds.
The tool lets users select one or two 3D sensors to instantly analyze and compare minimum range, maximum range, horizontal field of view, vertical field of view, and diagonal field of view. You can also click and drag for different viewpoints.
OpenAI disbands its robotics research team due to lack of large enough data sets to effectively generate reinforcement models.
Engineers use a few different techniques that employed both Spot’s Choreographer software and its API to make Spot dance.
To demo the algorithm, the robot helped put a jacket on a human, which could potentially prove to be a powerful tool in expanding assistance for those with disabilities or limited mobility.
The base policy and adaptation module are run asynchronously and at different frequencies, which allows RMA to operate robustly with only a small onboard computer.
Neurala’s VIA software helps manufacturers improve quality inspection on production lines.
The Robotics Week series consists of three digital events focused on autonomous mobile robots, cobots, and robotics engineering.
U.S. Army findings suggest human-made legged platforms should be as efficient as wheeled and tracked platforms.
A Ford Ranger and Range Rover Evoque, retrofitted with Oxbotica’s autonomy software and a full suite of sensors, was recently deployed in a U.K. quarry.
NASA is eager to share the technical details of its accomplishments, unlike the typical commercial robotics venture trying to outpace its competitors.
Kami will strengthen Embodied’s Moxie robot by adding memory of past conversations context, consistent personality, common sense reasoning.
The DARPA Subterranean Challenge enters the homestretch as the final 8 teams are announced for the last competition event.
Goldberg on Ambi Robotics’ Sim2Real technology, how Dex-Net is powering its robots, lessons learned over the years, and the challenges of universal grasping.
Ambi Robotics, formerly known as Ambidextrous Laboratories, raised $6.1 million in seed funding for its picking robots and operating system that are based on simulation-to-reality artificial intelligence (AI). Co-founded by the great Ken Goldberg, a professor at UC Berkeley, Ambi Robotics said it is exiting stealth mode, although its work on improving robotic grasping hasn’t…
I feel your pain, Anderson Cooper. I feel your pain. I too have been trying to get into Boston Dynamics’ headquarters for years, but to no avail. Certainly Boston Dynamics must have lost my phone number, which is why it reached out to you and 60 Minutes. If you missed it, Cooper and 60 Minutes…
Researchers studied how reinforcement learning enabled a robot arm equipped with a parallel jaw gripper and tactile sensors to insert unknown objects into a hole.
