Collaboration between humans and robots
The new dimension of collaboration between humans and robots can be measured in just a few centimeters: the latest generation of high-precision sensors tells the robotic arms of today‚Äôs manufacturing assistants to stop whenever a person gets near. This happens so fast and so reliably that the (...)

Bug eyes: Tiny 3D glasses confirm insect 3D vision
Miniature glasses have proved that mantises use 3-D vision, providing a new model to improve visual perception in robots. 3D vision in mantises was originally shown in the 1980s but this work used prisms and occluders which meant that only a very limited set of images could be shown. The new (...)
