MIT Software Optimizes Paths For Automated Underwater Vehicles

MIT Software Optimizes Paths For Automated Underwater Vehicles

Figuring out the best route for many underwater vehicle like ‘swarm’ is a monumentally complex problem. But, MIT researchers have developed new software and methods that can predict optimal paths for automated underwater vehicles. The purpose is to teach the “swarms” of undersea robots: how to effectively draw paths for us. The team is going to present their mathematical procedure in May at the annual IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation.

Protein Emerged From Human Body Creating Flexible And Biodegradable Transistors

Protein Emerged From Human Body Creating Flexible And Biodegradable Transistors

Researchers from Tel Aviv University (TAU) have created a transistor which is made from one of the organic materials ‘Protein': found in the human body. They collected the protein from breast milk, mucus and blood. The scientists have created totally silicon free, flexible and biodegradable transistors by using the proteins. Their target is not only to create transistors but also to produce more electronic devices by using human emerged Proteins.

Amazing Acrobats Of Nano Quadcopter Robots Swarm

Amazing Acrobats Of Nano Quadcopter Robots Swarm

We all are acquainted with Acrobat. Most of the time, people do various type of acrobatic steps, sometimes animals do also. But did anyone one hear about Robots are doing acrobatics? I guess, NO. this time, instead of animal or human, robots will do the acrobatic styles. Well, a robotics research team at the University of Pennsylvania has designed a system to coordinate a number of small quadcopters. Being hope that, this robots will be used for surveillance or searching purpose after a disaster in future.

Apple Quietly Rolled Out Low Cost iMac Designed For Education Institutions

Apple Quietly Rolled Out Low Cost iMac Designed For Education Institutions

Apple has been known to offer education exclusive machines for schools and it seems they have stayed true to the practice with the recent launch of a 21-inch iMac for $999. The cheaper iMac is designed for education institutions only, which means individuals cannot purchase the computer at the discounted rate and the new model sports a 3.1ghz i3, 2 gigs of ram and 250 gigs of hard drive space. Apple currently plans on launching the iMac on 16th of August, that date could change though not by much and expect launch of the device near the middle to end of August…………

Robotic Wheelchair Gets First Test Drive

Robotic Wheelchair Gets First Test Drive

Sweden’s Luleå University of Technology has developed a robotic wheelchair that does not look very technological or well-designed, but is definitely useful. The chair uses a laser sensor to generate a 3D map of its surroundings, that’s then transferred to an on-board haptic robot, allowing the bot to select up on and navigate its way around any obstacles.

HRP-2 Humanoid Robot Turns Obstacles Into Tools

HRP-2 Humanoid Robot Turns Obstacles Into Tools

Modern humanoid robots are able to run, somersault and even dance – now comes a robot that walks like a senior citizen. It leans on objects in its environment for support to help it move around and complete tasks.Newscientist published an article last week about HRP-2, a robot unveiled this month during the Humanoids2010 conference in Nashville. Sébastien Lengagne of Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology in Tsukuba, along with a team of french and japanese scientists, developed a program that allows the HRP-2 to use objects in his environment to help his movements, rather than simply considering them as obstacles.

General Motors sensor-laden windshield

General Motors sensor-laden windshield

Apparently not everyone at General Motors is toiling away in an attempt to get the Volt ready for its 2010 debut, as another sector of the outfit’s R&D division is busy creating a windshield that will, at its core, enable us to stop running stuff over. The futuristic glass would utilize lasers, sensors and cameras […]
