No human stepped foot on the acre and a half barley farm. The manual labor in Hands Free Hectare was done entirely by robot farmers.
When it comes to assessing damage and spotting people in distress, drones may be hard to beat.
Advances in AI have made it possible for machines to autonomously inspect pipelines, power lines, and transportation systems.
Sharp-shooting, herbicide-squirting machines could cut farmers’ chemical bills.
The practical uses for an extra robotic arm are probably not what you’re thinking
Ready to connect with your inner James Cameron, without getting your feet wet? Already, we’ve seen crowdfunded underwater drones such as the Trident, Gladius and Blueye Pioneer. Now, there’s yet another. YouCan’s BlueWater 1 (BW1) has just hit Indiegogo.
The emerging field of soft robotics is helping to make robots safer, but recreating muscle is no easy task. Now, mechanical engineers from Columbia University have developed a synthetic soft muscle that’s much more simple to make and run than others, and is stronger than the real thing.
We’ve seen remote-controlled cubes, balls and other gadgets that let people “telesocialize” with their pets via the internet. The latest such device, the Anthouse, takes the form of a little tank-like robot.
THE human-like abilities of robots continue to develop at incredible pace with droids now being seen to chase targets and even fire guns. But now scientists have taken the potential for humans.
A new “terrarium for robots” has a simple concept: Robots for everyone.
