A Micro Robot In An Ingestible Capsule In A Simulated Stomach. In experiments involving a simulation of the human esophagus and stomach, researchers at MIT, the University of Sheffield, and the Tokyo Institute of Technology have demonstrated a tiny origami robot that can unfold itself from a swallowed capsule and, steered by external magnetic fields, […]

New Research Yields a Specific Surgical Robot Design Not even the surest surgeon’s hand is quite as steady and consistent as a robotic arm built of metal and plastic, programmed to perform the same motions over and over. So could it handle the slippery stuff of soft tissues during a surgery?

Human Robot Interactions and Vice Versa. Robotics is a fast changing field with applications moving from industrial to medical and the service industry. How humans interact with these new machines, some of which have high levels of artificial intelligence, is also changing. Conversely how we design robots to interact with us is a topic for […]

Introducing Personalized Educational Assistive Robots When I was kid going to grade school the student to teachers ratios were about 25 or 30 to one making one on one time almost impossible for children that needed it. Researchers are investigating using robot educators to be able to increase the time and quality of learning for […]

Robotics and Underwater Vehicles Explore the Next Frontier. We know more about portions of outer space than we do much of the world’s oceans. I mean, take a look at the amount of equipment and measuring devices that we have focused on space such as satellites and the Hubble space telescope and compare that to […]

Advancing Brain Connected Interfaces. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), around 15% of the world’s population is physically impaired to some degree. In order to overcome the hurdles of everyday life, many disabled people use assistive technologies. Unfortunately, technology has not kept pace as most wheelchairs cannot yet climb stairs, bulky powered exoskeletons lack […]
