Machine learning helps robot swarms coordinate

Engineers at Caltech have designed a new data-driven method to control the movement of multiple robots through cluttered, unmapped spaces, so they do not run into one another.

Army robots get driver education for difficult tasks

Ground robots will be trained to receive demonstration commands—instead of verbal commands—to interpret, follow, recall and apply in similar contexts as part of a new Army research project starting this month with the ...

Robot jaws show medicated chewing gum could be the future

Medicated chewing gum has been recognized as a new advanced drug delivery method but currently there is no gold standard for testing drugs released from chewing gum in vitro. New research has shown a chewing robot with built-in ...

Transparent, reflective objects now within grasp of robots

Kitchen robots are a popular vision of the future, but if a robot of today tries to grasp a kitchen staple such as a clear measuring cup or a shiny knife, it likely won't be able to. Transparent and reflective objects are ...
