Video Friday is your weekly number of superior robotics movies, collected by your pals at IEEE Spectrum robotics. We additionally put up a weekly calendar of upcoming robotics occasions for the subsequent few months. Please send us your events for inclusion.
IEEE SSRR 2023: 13–15 November 2023, FUKUSHIMA, JAPAN
Humanoids 2023: 12–14 December 2023, AUSTIN, TEXAS.
Cybathlon Challenges: 02 February 2024, ZURICH
Get pleasure from at the moment’s movies!
The method of getting Spot to speak with a character may be very cool, however that is additionally one thing that must be completed very rigorously: Spot is a device, and though it might sound prefer it thinks and feels, it completely doesn’t. Simply one thing to bear in mind as extra Spots (and different robots) make it out into the wild.

Shhh. Be vewy, vewy quiet.

This video presents the exceptional capabilities of the TALOS robotic because it demonstrates agile and sturdy strolling utilizing Mannequin Predictive Management (MPC) references despatched to a Complete-Physique Inverse Dynamics (WBID) controller developed in collaboration with Dynamograde.

Dr. Hooman Samani from the Artistic Robotics Lab on the College of the Arts London writes, “The thought is to indicate how robots may be past conventional use and contain extra individuals in robotics corresponding to artists as we do at our college. So we made this video to indicate how a co-bot can be utilized as a DJ and folks and robots dance collectively to the robotic DJ in a robotic dance get together!”

Future robots ought to carry out a number of and numerous duties, as a substitute of easy pick-and-place operations. On this video, Dino Robotics demonstrates the functionalities of their software program answer: it cooks a steak! Bon Appétit!

This video presents a novel perching and tilting aerial robotic for exact and versatile power-tool work on vertical partitions. The system was developed as a part of the AITHON ETH Zürich Bachelor pupil focus mission and introduced at IEEE IROS 2023. It combines a compact built-in perching drone design with a concrete drill’s heavy payload and response forces.

That is what very excessive precision, very helpful robotics seems like.

Good purpose on this drone contemplating that its touchdown pad is rushing alongside at 20 knots.
[ AeroVironment ]
From the individuals liable for the enormous gundam in Japan comes this very large and really sluggish rideable quadruped factor.

Lava caves on Mars and significantly on the moon usually are not solely fascinating for exo-geologists and different area scientists, however in addition they may very well be used as storage rooms and even habitats for future human settlements. The query is entry and discover these big cavities underneath the lunar floor with out risking the lives of astronauts. That is the place robots, or relatively groups of robots, come into play.

The rise of latest Basis fashions (and functions e.g. ChatGPT) supply an thrilling glimpse into the capabilities of enormous deep networks educated on Web-scale knowledge. On this speak, I’ll briefly talk about a number of the classes we’ve discovered whereas scaling actual robotic knowledge assortment, how we’ve been occupied with Basis fashions, and the way we’d bootstrap off of them (and modularity) to make our robots helpful sooner.
