Picking up a can of soft drink may be a simple task for humans, but this is a complex task for robots - it has to locate the object, deduce its shape, determine the right amount of strength to use, and grasp the object without letting it slip.
West Virginia University's Duncan Lorimer might be the godfather of the fast radio burst, but a pair of international students has taken exploring these mysterious cosmic flashes to a new level.
Actuators that are capable of transforming several environmental stimuli into mechanical works have shown immense potential for designing smart devices like automatic Lab-on-a-Chip systems, soft robots, and micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS).
A ‘pandemic drone’ to remotely monitor and detect people with infectious respiratory conditions is being developed by the University of South Australia (UniSA) in partnership with a Canadian company.
A 2D laser profile sensor from Micro-Epsilon is being used by the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing and Research Centre (Nuclear AMRC) in a project to develop a smart robotic grinding/deburring solution for welded components.
A hug from a friend through a video call could soon be sensed in reality. A collaborative research group with engineers and researchers from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) and Northwestern University in the United States has created a skin-integrated virtual reality (VR) system that can be wirelessly powered and controlled.
RoboSense, the world’s leading autonomous driving LiDAR perception solution provider, announced today that it has won the CES 2020 Innovation Award the second year in a row for autonomous vehicle technology.
Lynred, a global leader in designing and manufacturing high quality infrared technologies for aerospace, defense and commercial markets, today announces that the payload on the Chandrayaan-2 orbiter includes its Neptune infrared (IR) detector.
Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon has launched a 3D non-contact surface inspection system for defect detection and for inspecting the aesthetic appearance of non-reflecting (matt, unpainted, plastic and bare metal) surfaces.
Unmanned drones require a variety of sensors to monitor different critical measurements to control flight and maintain aircraft stability.
