MIT researchers have developed a technique that facilitates the 3D printing of sensorized structures with “tunable” mechanical properties.
A more effective wind sensor has been created and successfully tested for use on drones, balloons, and other autonomous aircraft.
Researchers have developed a ‘smart finger’ that has the capacity to identify materials using “triboelectric” sensors that test its ability to gain or lose electrons, as well as determining other characteristics such its roughness, without the risk of causing damage.
An innovative project to develop better sensors for use in robotic systems might improve prosthetics and robotic limbs.
Engineers from the University of California, San Diego, have created a low-cost, low-power device to assist robots in properly mapping their path indoors, even in low-light conditions and in the absence of identifiable landmarks or features.
Researchers at the University of Oxford have developed a virtual reality (VR) based cognitive therapy (CBT) tool that helps patients recover from agoraphobic psychosis by participating in simulated real-world scenarios.
Accurate pressure-controlled 3D printers ensure structural soundness of objects, enabling additive manufacturing to become mainstream.
In a paper published on February 23, 2022 in Nature Machine Intelligence, a team of scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS) introduce a robust soft haptic sensor named "Insight" that uses computer vision and a deep neural network to accurately estimate where objects come into contact with the sensor and how large the applied forces are.
Researchers at TU Graz have created a powerful AI-enhanced radar that could help improve current radar technologies and help deal with safety concerns.
A new robotic sensor that mimics the automatic human reaction to heat is being hailed as a world first.
