Robots that care

Robots that care, with increased cognitive abilities. Robots able to perceive their environment, understand it, respond and behave appropriately and navigate autonomously. Robots that can assist patients and support the work of nurses and doctors in hospitals. This is what Konica Minolta Laboratory Europe aims to do within the course of a partnership.

The Centauro: A new disaster response robot

Researchers have completed the realization, assembly and testing of a new disaster response robot: the Centauro, a Centaur-like robot consisting of a four-legged base and an anthropomorphic upper body. The robot is capable of performing robust locomotion, high strength manipulation and harsh interactions that may be necessary during the execution of disaster relief tasks.

Tattoo electrodes from an ink-jet printer

In the case of diagnostic methods such as electrocardiogram and electromyography, gel electrodes are the preferred method of transmitting electric impulses from the heart or muscle. In clinical practice the frequently stiff and cumbersome electrodes noticeably restrict the mobility of patients and are not very comfortable.

Graphene girders could double the life of lithium batteries

New research has found an effective approach to replacing graphite in the anodes of lithium-ion batteries using silicon, by reinforcing the anode's structure with graphene girders. This could more than double the life of rechargeable lithium-ion based batteries and also increase the capacity delivered by those batteries.
