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. . . .

Summary:
Researchers are investigating realistic navigation for robots using computer modeling of the human eye and the brain of a rat.

Computer modelling of the human eye, the brain of a rat and a robot could revolutionize advances in neuroscience and new technology, says a QUT leading robotics researcher.

Dr Michael Milford from QUT’s Science and Engineering Faculty says the new study uses new computer algorithms to enable robots to navigate intelligently, unrestricted by high-density buildings or tunnels.

“This is a very Frankenstein type of project,” Dr Milford said. . . . Read Complete Report

Summary:
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. . . .

Dec. 3, 2013 — Human interaction with robots is about to get a little more personal. Meet “Furhat,” the face of tomorrow’s interactive technology.

An increasingly important — and sometimes frustrating — part of daily life is dealing with so-called “user interfaces.” Whether it’s a smartphone or an airport check-in system, the user’s ability to get what they want out of the machine relies on their own adaptability to unfamiliar interfaces.

But what if you could simply talk to a machine the way you talk to a human being? And what if the machine could also ask you questions, or even address two different people at once? . . . Read Complete Report
