Video Friday: Humanoids Constructing BMWs

Video Friday is your weekly collection of superior robotics movies, collected by your folks at IEEE Spectrum robotics. We additionally put up a weekly calendar of upcoming robotics occasions for the subsequent few months. Please ship us your occasions for inclusion.

RoboCup 2024: 17–22 July 2024, EINDHOVEN, NETHERLANDS
ICRA@40: 23–26 September 2024, ROTTERDAM, NETHERLANDS
IROS 2024: 14–18 October 2024, ABU DHABI, UAE
ICSR 2024: 23–26 October 2024, ODENSE, DENMARK
Cybathlon 2024: 25–27 October 2024, ZURICH

Take pleasure in right now’s movies!

Determine is making progress towards a humanoid robotic that may do one thing helpful, however remember that the “full use case” right here shouldn’t be one steady shot.

Can this robotic survive a 1-meter drop? Spoiler alert: it can’t.


A kind of issues that’s quite a bit tougher for robots than it most likely appears.

It is a demo of hammering a nail. The instantaneous rebound drive from the hammer is absorbed by way of a mixture of the elasticity of the rubber materials securing the hammer, the deflection in torque sensors and harmonic gears, back-drivability, and impedance management. This permits the nail to be pushed with a certain quantity of drive.

Though bin packing has been a key benchmark process for robotic manipulation, the group has primarily targeted on the location of inflexible rectilinear objects inside the container. We deal with this by presenting a delicate robotic hand that mixes imaginative and prescient, motor-based proprioception, and delicate tactile sensors to establish, kind, and pack a stream of unknown objects.


Standing Replace: Extending conventional visible servo and compliant management by integrating the newest reinforcement and imitation studying management methodologies, UBTECH progressively trains the embodied intelligence-based “cerebellum” of its humanoid robotic Walker S for numerous industrial manipulation duties.


When you’re gonna ask a robotic to stack bread, higher make it flat.


Cassie needs to be one of the vital distinctive sounding legged robots there’s.

Twice the robots are by definition twice as succesful, proper…?

The Robotic Techniques Lab participated within the Superior Industrial Robotic Functions (AIRA) Problem on the ACHEMA 2024 course of trade commerce present, the place groups demonstrated their teleoperated robotic options for industrial inspection duties. We competed with the ALMA legged manipulator robotic, teleoperated utilizing a second robotic arm in a leader-follower configuration, inserting us in third place for the competitors.


That is apparently “peak demand” in a single marketplace for Wing supply drones.

Utilizing a brand new kind of surgical intervention and neuroprosthetic interface, MIT researchers, in collaboration with colleagues from Brigham and Girls’s Hospital, have proven {that a} pure strolling gait is achievable utilizing a prosthetic leg absolutely pushed by the physique’s personal nervous system. The surgical amputation process reconnects muscle mass within the residual limb, which permits sufferers to obtain “proprioceptive” suggestions about the place their prosthetic limb is in house.

Coal mining in Forest of Dean (UK) is such a troublesome and difficult job. Going into the mine as human is typically virtually inconceivable. We did it with our robotic whereas inspecting the mine with our companions (Forestry England) and the native miners!

Would you tango with a robotic? Inviting us into the fascinating world of dancing machines, robotic choreographer Catie Cuan highlights why educating robots to maneuver with grace, intention and emotion is crucial to creating AI-powered machines we are going to need to welcome into our each day lives.
