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 […]

Research Into New Metal Alloys That Stand Up To Hydrogen. High-tech metal alloys are widely used in important materials such as the cladding that protects the fuel inside a nuclear reactor. But even the best alloys degrade over time, victims of a reactor’s high temperatures, radiation, and hydrogen-rich environment. Now, a team of MIT researchers has […]

New Research Making Renewable Energy More Practical. Economical, reliable and efficient energy storage devices are the key to moving forward past fossil fuels to a society powered by clean renewable energy. Solar PV and wind energy technology provide clean power but it is from an intermittent source. To smooth this we need energy storage options and […]

Improving the Efficiency of Energy Generation by Controlling the Water Boiling Process. For anyone that has tried to make poached eggs knows that you need to wait until the water is boiling vigorously before you add the eggs to it. Put the eggs in too soon and you will have shredded scrambled eggs, leave them […]
