  • Hexapedal Robot
    Whether traversing over the sands of Mars, or walking up a stone path, this robot was designed to move easily and quickly, to jump, and even to flip over.
  • Firefighting Humanoid Robot
    With funding from the U.S. Navy Research Laboratory, Virginia Tech's RoMeLa laboratory is designing and building their Shipboard Autonomous Fire Fighting Robot, or SAFFiR.
  • Controlling a Delta Robot
    The 3 arm Delta robot is commonly used for high-speed pick and place applications. Multiple robots can used with conveyors and vision systems to form the full system. Using the functionality detailed in this application note it is possible to control a Delta mechanism using a low cost standard
  • A robot in every house
    Robots are not just for assembly lines any more. They're knocking at your front door, ready to fetch you a beer, watch for prowlers, or play your favorite CD. The ER1 from Evolution Robotics, Pasadena, Calif. ( ), is designed to be a low-cost robot for the home. Unlike other robotic toys, the ER 1
  • Shake hands with a robot
    Graspers that mimic human dexterity may open new doors for industrial robots. Three articulated fingers of the BarrettHand spread and conform to various shapes. The TorqueSwitch mechanism in cutaway BarrettHand's eight articulating joints can grasp objects of various sizes in almost any orientation
  • Kenshiro: Strong robot with 160 muscles
    The tendon-controlled humanoid robot created by the University of Tokyo has more than 160 artificial muscles and is the result of many years of experience. Around 100 brushless maxon motors ensures that the only 1.58 m tall robot has humanlike movements.
  • Human-Like Bipedal Walking Robot
    In the world of robotics engineering there are two primary ways to view how a robot walks. Either the robot has to be quasi-statically stable at every moment of movement, or it can walk like a human in a more dynamic manner, where if it stopped half-way through a step it would fall over. The real
  • Self-aware robot adapts to injury
    Researchers at Cornell University have built a four-legged robot that changes its programming to adapt to injury. Cornell University robot develops a new gait when one of its four legs is removed. The underlying algorithm, according to the team, could be used to build more complex robots that can
