Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, said that combining neural networks with motion-planning software will give robots the speed and skill to assist in warehouse environments.
A Berkeley AI Research team has developed BADGR, the Berkeley Autonomous Driving Ground Robot, which can learn to avoid obstacles without simulation or human supervision.
Robot-assisted surgery, among other technologies, to be discussed by developers, industry leaders at Santa Clara event.
A new insect-sized robot from UC Berkeley can scurry across the floor nearly as fast as a roach, and it’s also difficult to crush. It could be useful for search-and-rescue missions, say researchers.
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — In a research project for the U.S. Army, researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, developed an agile robot called Salto that looks like a Star Wars Imperial walker in miniature and may be able to aid in scouting and search-and-rescue operations. Robots like this may one day be used…
Biotech wizards have engineered electronic skin that can sense touch, in a major step towards next-generation robotics and prosthetic limbs. The lab-tested material responds to almost the same pressures as human skin and with the same speed, they reported in the British journal Nature Materials. Important hurdles remain but the exploit is an advance towards […]
UC Berkeley’s Department of Electrical Engineering is developing mini-robots to help locate earthquake survivors easily, cheaply, and quickly, and without jeopardizing the lives of rescuers. The remote control robot is known as DASH. It’s made of cardboard, plastic, and parts of computers and bits of old toys. The researchers goal is to develop swarms of […]
