Now it is possible to teleoperate individual and combined control of any number of robotic arms. Thanks to the designed control architecture, the human operator can intuitively create robot groups to control them together.
The heart of the new soft robot is a 'hysteretic valve', as the researchers call their invention in a publication in the journal Matter.
With modular components and an easy-to-use 3D interface, this interactive design pipeline enables anyone to create their own customized robotic hand.
A robust robotic automation solution for testing devices that incorporate any type of physical input such as touchscreens or buttons.
Model-free framework reorients over 2,000 diverse objects with a hand facing both upward and downward, in a step toward more human-like manipulation.
Prosthetic enables a wide range of daily activities, such as zipping a suitcase, shaking hands, and petting a cat.
The technology uses tactile sensing to identify objects underground, and might one day help disarm land mines or inspect cables.
Cutkosky applies analyses, simulations, and experiments to the design and control of robotic hands, tactile sensors, and devices for human/computer interaction. In manufacturing, his work focuses on design tools for rapid prototyping.
Researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have created two new soft robot grippers with sensory capabilities.
Robot-assisted surgical systems, also known as telerobotic surgical systems, are physical extensions of a surgeon.
An ultra-precise mind-controlled prosthetic
Engineers first to demonstrate a robotic finger with a highly precise sense of touch over a complex, multicurved surface
Pose estimation is an important step towards understanding people in images and videos with numerous applications in action understanding, human-robot interaction, surveillance, motion capture, and more.
Scientists have developed an ultra-light glove – weighing less than 8 grams per finger– that enables users to feel and manipulate virtual objects. Their system provides extremely realistic haptic feedback and could run on a battery, allowing for unparalleled freedom of movement.
