Vision system for household robots
For household robots ever to be practical, they'll need to be able to recognize the objects they're supposed to manipulate. But while object recognition is one of the most widely studied topics in artificial intelligence, even the best object detectors still fail much of the time. A new (...)

The future for augmented humans: 'In five years you’ll see exoskeletons on the building site'
From paraplegics able to stand up from a wheelchair and walk again to workmen carrying heavy loads, robotics-enhanced humans are no longer just science fiction Visions of humans running around in exoskeletons able to move faster, jump higher and hit harder from films such as Tom Cruise’s Edge (...)

Flying robots to aid in inventory management
Standing on top of a ladder several meters high, pad and pen in hand, just to count boxes? Inventories in large warehouses could soon appear quite different and proceed to take flight, in the truest sense of those words: The goal of the InventAIRy Project is to automatically localize and record (...)

New 'electronic skin' for prosthetics, robotics detects pressure from different directions
Touch can be a subtle sense, but it communicates quickly whether something in our hands is slipping, for example, so we can tighten our grip. For the first time, scientists report the development of a stretchable 'electronic skin' closely modeled after our own that can detect not just pressure, (...)

Using robots to get more food from raw materials
Can an industrial robot succeed both at removing the breast fillet from a chicken, and at the same time get more out of the raw materials? Researchers have now built a fully-functional robot in the lab to automate the process of extracting breast fillets from chickens. This is a task normally (...)
