The Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing, or ARM, Institute has selected eight new projects focusing on high-value ways to empower U.S. manufacturers using robotics and automation.
The ARM Institute announced the selection of five sustainment projects focused on strengthening U.S. Department of Defense equipment maintenance with robotics.
Although simulators are popular with robotics developers, they are still too difficult to use, found a survey by Carnegie Mellon University researchers.
Humans take perception-action loops for granted, and Microsoft researchers have developed methods to provide more autonomous navigation to robots and drones.
Teams participating in the DARPA Subterranean Challenge must develop systems that can navigate and explore complex environments to “make the inaccessible accessible.”
The collaborative space at Mill 19 shared by ARM, Carnegie Mellon University, and Catalyst Connection. The organizations plan to use it to drive the future of U.S. manufacturing with robotics and workforce development.
A team from CMU and OSU beat 10 competitors in the Tunnel Circuit stage of the DARPA Subterranean Challenge. The robots conducted a mock search-and-rescue scenario.
Martial Hebert, a leading researcher in computer vision and robotics, has been named dean of Carnegie Mellon University’s world-renowned School of Computer Science (SCS), effective August 15. Hebert, director of the Robotics Institute in SCS since 2014, will lead a school with more than 270 faculty members and approximately 2,300 students. He has been a…
This week, the Robotic Industries Association named this year’s recipients of the Engelberger Robotics Awards. The prestigious awards recognize people who have contributed to the advancement of automation for the benefit of humanity. They will be presented at a special dinner at Automate 2019. Howie Choset will receive the award for education. As a professor,…
From the Biorobotics Lab at Carnegie Mellon University, a snake robot (Snakebot) demonstrates how it can climb a tree and look around. Please keep in mind that this robot climbed a specific tree with a specific trunk width about 1 meter off of the ground. The researchers working to design, build and program these robots […]
A new 3-D projection technology that floats video and images on falling water may have entertainment value for theme parks and gaming in the future. It also might help drivers to navigate more safely at night through torrential downpours. AquaLux 3D, developed at Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute, targets light and images onto and between […]
