Robotically steered flexible needles navigate in tissue
Robotically steering flexible needles can reach their intended target in tissue with sub-millimetre level accuracy. A major advantage of steering flexible needles is that one can avoid obstacles or sensitive tissues and can re-orient the path of the needle in real time as you insert the (...)

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 (...)

Biophysicists take small step in quest for 'robot scientist'
Biophysicists have taken another small step forward in the quest for an automated method to infer models describing a system's dynamics -- a so-called robot scientist.

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 (...)

Robo-whiskers mimic animals exploring their surroundings
Many mammals, including seals and rats, rely on their whiskers to sense their way through dark environments. Inspired by these animals, scientists have developed a robotic 'whisker' tactile sensor array designed to produce tomographic images by measuring fluid (...)
