Tiny Autonomous Robots Can Move on Human Hair

Cornell University is currently leading the race to create the smallest and most efficient robots. A team from the university recently developed a set of robots small enough to sit on human hair, and with the ability to move on…

Novel Hearing Aids Technology Can Read Lips through Facemasks

An international team of computing scientists and engineers have developed a new system that is capable of reading lips with accuracy even when the speaker is wearing a facemask. The system combines artificial intelligence with radio-frequency to identify lip movements.…

Smart Microrobots use Artificial Intelligence to Learn how to Swim

Researchers from the University of Hong Kong, New Jersey Institute of Technology, and Santa Clara University have successfully taught microrobots to swim through deep reinforcement learning, an incredible development in microswimming capability. Artificial microswimmers capable of navigating the world like…

New Robots Use Wi-fi to Navigate Indoors

Engineers at the University of California San Diego recently developed a new way for robots to accurately navigate the indoors terrain, even without any recognizable feature and in poor lighting. The technology includes sensors that use WiFi signals that help…

MIT’s Mini Cheetah and its Speed

MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) recently created a new version of a quick quadrupedal robot. Although four-legged robots have amassed a lot of popularity over the last few years, running is a skill that has eluded them.…

New Sony AI Drives Race Car

Takuma Miyazono began his racing career at age 4 when his father brought home the motorsport game Gran Turismo 4. In 2020, sixteen years later, Miyazono became the Gran Turismo world champion, winning a ‘triple crown’ of esports motor racing…

New Wearable Sensors can Track Hand Use in Amputees

Researchers at the University of Missouri, Columbia recently developed a system to track hand use in people who use a hand prosthesis or have undergone a hand transplant. The technology tracks hands’ movement, and monitors how people make use of…

Simulator Helps Robot Enhance their Cutting Skills

Researchers from the USC’s Department of Computer Science and NVDIA have released a new simulator for robotic cutting which can accurately reproduce the forces acting on a knife while it slices through common food. The system can also simulate cutting…
