MIT’s C-LEARN allows Robots to learn Tasks easily from other Robots

Most robots are programmed using one of two methods: One method is, learning from demonstration, in which they watch a task being done and then replicate it. The other method is, via motion-planning techniques such as optimization or sampling, which require a programmer to explicitly specify a task’s goals and constraints. Both methods have drawbacks. … Continue reading “MIT’s C-LEARN allows Robots to learn Tasks easily from other Robots”

PUFFER – NASA’s Origami-inspired Robot Can Hitch a Ride with a Rover

NASA is developing this Robot named as PUFFER i-e Pop-Up Flat Folding Explorer Robot This robot was inspired by origami. Its lightweight design is capable of flattening itself, tucking in its wheels and crawling into places rovers can’t fit. PUFFER’s compact design means numerous robots can be packed into a larger “parent” craft at a … Continue reading “PUFFER – NASA’s Origami-inspired Robot Can Hitch a Ride with a Rover”

Transparent Hydrogel Robots can catch and release live Fish

Engineers at MIT have fabricated transparent, gel-based robots that move when water is pumped in and out of them. The bots can perform a number of fast, forceful tasks, including kicking a ball underwater, and grabbing and releasing a live fish. The robots are made entirely of hydrogel — a tough, rubbery, nearly transparent material … Continue reading “Transparent Hydrogel Robots can catch and release live Fish”

Soft Robot helps the Heart beat

Harvard University and Boston Children’s Hospital researchers have developed a customizable soft robot that fits around a heart and helps it beat, potentially opening new treatment options for people suffering from heart failure. The soft robotic sleeve twists and compresses in synch with a beating heart, augmenting cardiovascular functions weakened by heart failure. Unlike currently … Continue reading “Soft Robot helps the Heart beat”
