Robotic Wheelchair with Legs

Japan Chiba Institute of Technology has been developing a wheelchair which has legs. This legs are not exactly the same as a human leg but they can climb stairs like a human. This development will be a big improvement for disabled people in their life. The most amazing thing is this robotic wheelchair has some […]

Drones Can Safely Fly in the National Airspace System

Drones Can Safely Fly in the National Airspace System

General Atomics Aeronautical Systems(GA‑ASI) announced the demonstration of an Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B)-based surveillance system. This system provides pilots with enhanced situational awareness and supports GA-ASI’s overall airborne sense-and-avoid architecture for its Predator® B RPA. Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast(ADS-B) is the GPS-based surveillance system. System is the cornerstone of the FAA’s “Next Gen” Air Traffic Management (ATM) system, […]

Robot sub maps underside of Antarctic ice in 3-D

Robot sub maps underside of Antarctic ice in 3-D

Scientists have made a map of sea ice in eastern Antarctica in 3-D. The map will show the amount of ice in the region, which is important for understanding how climate change is affecting Antarctica. On a two-month voyage to the region on the Australian Antarctic Division’s icebreaker Aurora Australis, the Australian researchers used helicopters and a special, […]

Robotic Hair Restoration

Robotic Hair Restoration

Restoration Robotics has created the ground-breaking ARTAS™ System, the first and only FDA cleared, physician controlled, interactive, computer assisted technology that allows safe and effective follicular unit extraction (FUE). The ARTAS System was developed in close collaboration with several leading hair restoration physicians to enable minimally invasive harvesting of hair follicles. Hair restoration moves healthy, functioning follicles […]

Cheetah Robot for Military

Cheetah Robot for Military

Military Robotics – Coming on in Leaps and Gallops! Those who believe that one day soon humans will be walking the streets with robots took one step closer to this reality recently when a robot prototype reached a speed of 18 miles per hour. Whilst the streets are safe for the time being from things […]

Robot Tractor

Robot Tractor

Engineers in Belgium have made a fully autonomous tractor robot, which can stay on course within centimeter precision while at the same time detecting wet terrain, aticipating slippage and calculating its optimal speed, thus operating much more efficiently than a human driver could. The vehicle is equipped with GPS system and various positional sensors. See […]

Robot Ostrich may run fast

Robot Ostrich may run fast

Researchers at Florida Institute of Human Machine Cognition have made a leg design for a robot Ostrich that would allow the robot to run on two legs with speeds up to 30 km / hour by using only one actuator per leg. The project is funded by DARPA, just as many other robotic projects, which […]
