Humanoids 2023: 12–14 December 2023, AUSTIN, TEX.
Cybathlon Challenges: 02 February 2024, ZURICH, SWITZERLAND
Take pleasure in in the present day’s movies!
Digit, our human-centric robotic, can now self-right and stand again up after it falls. That is footage from our testing lab, the place we deliberately disable the notion programs that will usually keep away from/alter to obstacles stopping Digit from falling. For the needs of this take a look at, we power Digit to fall in a managed setting to display our new self-righting and recovering skill.

With our multipick performance, Stretch is unlocking the following stage of automated unloading. Stretch can now transfer a number of containers with a single swing of the arm. In typical delivery containers full of 1000’s of containers, the robotic is hitting considerably increased charges of productiveness.

Since their mass manufacturing within the early 2000s, vacuum robots have emerged as extremely profitable industrial merchandise within the area of house automation. At KIMLAB, we’ve applied a cell manipulator primarily based on a vacuum robotic and an add-on mechanism by using our PAPRAS (Plug-And-Play Robotic Arm System).
Completely happy 100 Ikeadroneversary to Verity!

In the event you’re questioning what sort of black magic is making this work, the reply is the most effective form of black magic: magnets.
Honda is exploring how our all-electric prototype Honda Autonomous Work Car (AWV) may handle the challenges of labor shortages, security and safety, and emissions reductions to deliver new worth to airfield operations. The Honda AWV is designed to spice up workforce productiveness and help repetitive duties that permit corporations to focus their workforce on value-added actions. First launched as an idea at CES 2018, the Honda AWV is now advancing towards commercialization.

The SMART Progressive Coaching Community is a three way partnership between academia and trade, offering scientific and private improvement of younger researchers within the multidisciplinary fields of sentimental robotics and good supplies. SMART will understand the technologically and scientifically bold breakthroughs to take advantage of good, stimuli-responsive materials programs for actuation, sensing, and self-healing capabilities for clever comfortable gadgets.
