Researchers at MIT have created assembling robots that are made up of the same components they use to build structures.
Researchers at the MIT developed a system that can help robots retrieve target items from a pile of items with some RFID tags.
Researchers at MIT’s CSAIL released an open-source simulation engine that can construct environments to test autonomous vehicles.
MIT’s research team hopes that its findings could help autonomous robots explore remote exoplanets with unknown conditions.
CSAIL’s Perceptual Science Group created touch sensors for their gripper, allowing it to feel with the same sensitivity as human skin.
The former Jibo founder and CEO is also a professor of media arts and sciences at MIT.
The robots could be used in swarms to pollinate a field of crops, or to search for survivors in disaster areas.
Workers at Ward Aquafarms flip thousands of oyster bags that could weigh up to 70 lb, while dealing with rough waters and bad weather. MIT is building a robot to help.
Researchers hope to create new security systems for robots using transaction-based interactions as a way to build trust between humans and groups of robots.
The primary goals are to ensure the benefits of AI and robotics are shared broadly and to promote participation in research.
MIT developed a high-speed flight-planning algorithm that combines simulations and experiments, in a way that minimizes the number of experiments required to identify fast and safe flight paths.
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.
In their RoboBusiness Direct session moderated by MassRobotics Executive Director Tom Ryden, Motional CTO Laura Major and MIT Professor Julie Shah will examine the future of human-robot interaction.
The U.S. Army and MIT are exploring how metamaterials can help form modular robotic building blocks for transforming robots that can be reconfigured into different shapes and functions.
“What to Expect When You’re Expecting Robots” is a new book co-authored by MIT Associate Professor Julie Shah and Motional CTO Laura Major that explores a future populated with robot helpers.
Researchers from MIT and Brigham and Women’s Hospital hope to reduce the risk to healthcare workers posed by Covid-19 by using robots to remotely measure patients’ vital signs.
MIT researchers have developed a representation of spatial perception for robots that is modeled after the way humans perceive and navigate the world.
MIT CSAIL created a system that uses two robotic gripper with soft sensitive fingers to handle cables with unprecedented dexterity.
Using ultraviolet light, a UVC robot developed by MIT and Ava Robotics can disinfect a warehouse floor in half an hour. It could one day be used in grocery stores, schools, and other public spaces
MIT AI researcher Daniela Russ, who has two decades of experience developing human-machine collaboration, has joined Vecna Robotics’ board of directors.
The Engine has invested in RISE Robotics, which is developing electric and mechanical systems to displace hydraulics and reduce energy consumption.
A photorealistic simulation system enables autonomous vehicles to learn to drive in the real world and recover from near-crash scenarios.
