Like a teenager going off to college, DARPA’s Atlas robot has cut the tether and is walking on its own without a safety line. The centerpiece of this year’s DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC), the upgraded Atlas robotwas unveiled to the competing teams in Waltham, Massachusetts last week during a technical shakeout.
Developed for DARPA by Boston Dynamics, the 6 ft 2 in (1.88 m), 345 lb (156.5 kg) bipedal, humanoid Atlas robot is designed for exploring ways to use robots in disaster situations – especially where navigating debris and using tools or found objects is necessary. According to DARPA, the upgrades to the Atlas increase its efficiency, dexterity, and resilience, with 75 percent of it replaced with new components and only the lower legs and feet remaining from the original design. . . .

The computer programs used in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) are highly specialized. They can for example fly airplanes, play chess or assemble cars in controlled industrial environments. Scientists have now created an AI program that can learn how to solve problems in many different areas. The program is designed to imitate certain aspects of children’s cognitive development. . . .

Researchers at MIT and Northeastern University have equipped a robot with a novel tactile sensor that lets it grasp a USB cable and insert it into a USB port. (Learn more about the sensor: http://bit.ly/1uNmcft)
There are many situations where it’s impossible, complicated or too time-consuming for humans to enter and carry out operations. Think of contaminated areas following a nuclear accident, or the need to erect structures such as antennae on mountain tops. These are examples of where flying robots could be used. . . .

Just when I was thinking of doing a “Robot Roundup” post encapsulating some of the wide variety of the stories we’ve covered in that area of regard, I ran across this presentation. Although it’s not exactly an in-depth treatment. it hits most of the high robotics spots we’ve covered over the past few months
(Truthstream Media.com) Dystopic Hollywood nightmares have nothing on real life military research projects. During Truthstream Media’s June 29th broadcast on UnboundRadio.com, Melissa Melton listed off a long, creepy list of semi-secret projects the military is pursuing under DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency). . .
