Exosuit shows potential for wearable robots
Researchers have previously developed robotic devices for rehabilitation and other areas of life that can either assist walking or running, but no untethered portable device could efficiently do both.
For climbing robots, the sky's the limit
Robots can drive on the plains and craters of Mars, but what if we could explore cliffs, polar caps and other hard-to-reach places on the Red Planet and beyond?
New AI programming language goes beyond deep learning
General-purpose language works for computer vision, robotics, statistics, and more.
Wearable system to sense, stimulate brain at unprecedented resolution
A noninvasive neural interface that can be used as a wearable device. This neural interface will be capable of both recording and stimulating the brain's dynamic activity with high temporal and spatial resolution.
Hummingbird robot uses AI to soon go where drones can't
Researchers have engineered flying robots that behave like hummingbirds, trained by machine learning algorithms based on various techniques the bird uses naturally every day.
Air Force partnership advancing wearable sensor technology
Imagine being able to monitor your health quickly, simply, painlessly, and continuously, without complicated equipment or a doctor visit. For athletes or people with health conditions, an immediate physical "status update" would be a great convenience. For the warfighter in the field, it could be the crucial element of a successful mission.
Robotics research may help Parkinson's patients
For years, Israeli neurologist Tamar Flash has had a fascination with the octopus, and the way the invertebrate's eight arms propel it effortlessly through the water. She's convinced this has major implications for diagnosing and treating Parkinson's disease — and possible other disorders as well.
Route to flexible electronics made from exotic materials
Engineers have developed a technique to fabricate ultrathin semiconducting films made from a host of exotic materials other than silicon. To demonstrate their technique, the researchers fabricated flexible films made from gallium arsenide, gallium nitride, and lithium fluoride — materials that exhibit better performance than silicon but until now have been prohibitively expensive to produce in functional devices.
Neuromodulation technology to treat Diabetes
Could non-invasive devices replace drugs and regular insulin injections in the future treatment of diabetes? This is a central question a team of scientists are exploring as part of a research project worth up to $2.9 million.
Personalized soft exosuit breaks new ground
Fully wearable soft exosuit with automatic tuning helps users save energy and walk outside over difficult terrain.
Robots and drones making their own decisions? That's the goal
What if a parent could feel safe allowing a drone to walk their child to the bus stop? Robots working without human intervention? That might occur sooner than you think with a new avenue of artificial intelligence.
