Robot 3-D prints replacement bracket on headlamp

In a world first, Swinburne’s Repairbot project has achieved a major milestone, using a robot to successfully 3-D print a replacement lug on an automotive headlamp assembly.

Cutting-edge underwater mining system can give flooded mines a new lease of life

Europe has an estimated EUR 100 billion worth of unexploited mineral resources lying at depths of 500-1,000 m. Following centuries of active mining, the continent’s more accessible mineral deposits are mostly depleted. However, there are still deep-lyi…

Autonomous robot that interacts with humans using natural language and vision processing

Purdue University researchers in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering are developing integrative language and vision software that may enable an autonomous robot to interact with people in different environments and accomplish navigational…

Sensitive robots feel the strain

Flexible skin for soft robots, embedded with electrical nanowires, combines conductivity with sensitivity within the same material.

Scientists develop smart technology for synchronized 3-D printing of concrete

Scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have developed a technology whereby two robots can work in unison to 3-D-print a concrete structure. This method of concurrent 3-D printing, known as swarm printing, paves the …

Researchers work to add function to 3-D-printed objects

In the movie Terminator 2, the T-1000 robot pours itself through the ceiling of an elevator. That scene started a flow of ideas for Purdue Polytechnic Institute professor Richard Voyles.

Hairy robot

The University of Texas at Arlington has patented a smart skin, created by a UTA researcher, that will give robots more sensitive tactile feeling than humans.

Touch-sensitive avatar-robotic arm based on real-time haptics

Researchers at Keio University’s Haptics Research Center have developed a ‘real-time-avatar-robotic arm’ that transmits sound, vision, and highly sensitive feelings of touch to remotely located users. This innovative touch sensitive robotic technology …

How to build a bio-bot: Researchers share design and development of biological machines

Creating tiny muscle-powered robots that can walk or swim by themselves—or better yet, when prompted—is more complicated than it looks.
