Microscopic fish are 3-D-printed to do more than swim
Nanoengineers at the University of California, San Diego used an innovative 3-D printing technology they developed to manufacture multipurpose fish-shaped microrobots -- called microfish -- that swim around efficiently in liquids, are chemically powered by hydrogen peroxide and magnetically (...)

Smooth robot movements reduce energy consumption by up to 40 percent
By minimizing the acceleration of industrial robots, energy consumption can be reduced by up to 40 percent -- while retaining the given production time. This is the result of a new optimization algorithm.

Alphabet-owned company aims to build robots that rival humans and animals
Boston Dynamics, the robot company owned by Alphabet (formerly known as Google), has invented robots that can go ‘anywhere a soldier might go’ Boston Dynamics, the robot company owned by Alphabet, the company formerly known as Google, has taken on a new challenge: the great outdoors. In a video (...)

Instantaneous motion for new soft robots
Soft machines and robots are capable of moving, jumping and gripping objects thanks to soft, inflatable segments called fluidic actuators. These actuators require large amounts of air or water to change shape, making the machines slow, bulky and difficult to untether but researchers have (...)

Computer scientists find mass extinctions can accelerate evolution
Computer scientists have found that robots evolve more quickly and efficiently after a virtual mass extinction modeled after real-life disasters such as the one that killed off the dinosaurs. Beyond implications for artificial intelligence, the research supports the idea that mass extinctions (...)

Artificially evolved robots that efficiently self-organize tasks
Darwinian selection can be used to evolve robot controllers able to efficiently self-organize their tasks. Taking inspiration from the way in which ants organize their work and divide up tasks, researchers evolved complex robot behaviors using artificial evolution and detailed robotics (...)

Giving robots a more nimble grasp
Engineers have now hit upon a way to impart more dexterity to simple robotic grippers: using the environment as a helping hand. The team has developed a model that predicts the force with which a robotic gripper needs to push against various fixtures in the environment in order to adjust its (...)

Object recognition for robots
A team of researchers specializes in SLAM, or simultaneous localization and mapping, the technique whereby mobile autonomous robots map their environments and determine their locations. Now these researchers have demonstrated how SLAM can be used to improve object-recognition systems, which (...)

Model for robots with bacteria-controlled brains
A scientist used a mathematical model to demonstrate that bacteria can control the behavior of an inanimate device like a robot.

Robotics and the law: When software can harm you
Twenty years in, the law is finally starting to get used to the Internet. Now it is imperative that the law figure out how to deal effectively with the rise of robotics and artificial intelligence, an expert says.
[Science daily]

A jump for soft–bodied robots
Traditional robots are made of components and rigid materials like you might see on an automotive assembly line – metal and hydraulic parts, harshly rigid, and extremely strong. But away from the assembly line, for robots to harmoniously assist humans in close–range tasks scientists are designing (...)
