#DRC : les coréens du KAIST remportent les finalesRobots, Drones et Intelligence Artificielle

La lutte tant attendue a bien eu lieu et la finale de la DARPA ROBOTICS CHALLENGE a tenu toutes ses promesses. Cela s’est joué à très peu, quelques minutes seulement, mais c’est finalement l’équipe de l’Institut de Sciences et Technologie avancée de Corée (KAIST), emmenée par le Jun Ho Oh, qui avait le meilleur robot ce week-end. L’équipe du KAIST a remporté le maximum de points, 8 points, en faisant un tour parfait sans chute. Deux autres équipes ont également fait carton plein en réalisant un parcours parfait : les équipes américaines IHMC ROBOTICS et TARTAN RESCUE.

C’est le temps qui a départagé les équipes, puisque les coréens ont fini le parcours en seulement 44:28 minutes, alors que le 2ème l’a fait en 50:26 et le troisième en 55:15. MONTAUD Andre pro sur Twitter : "Optimistic story : “This Woman Makes #Robots. And No One Is Going to Stop Her.” by @signe. This Woman Makes Robots. And No One Is Going to Stop Her. — Backchannel.

Melonee Wise was employee 2 at Willow Garage.

This Woman Makes Robots. And No One Is Going to Stop Her. — Backchannel

Its legacy destroyed her first startup but lives on in her latest venture. Melonee Wise paces through the aisles of a small mock warehouse, pausing every so often to take an item from a shelf and drop it into a blue bin beside her. When she moves on, the plastic bin follows, like an obediant pet. The bin sits on top of a wheeled robot called Freight. Wise has been developing Freight and its sibling Fetch, a torso with one arm, for the last six months.

Wise walks down the aisles, as humans do, pausing and changing her path as new whims arise. Birth day for Pepper/NAO. Hello to both of you, I agree with Fabio when he says the production or manufacturing date shouldn't be important, BUT I understand that people want to know the birth date of the robot.

Birth day for Pepper/NAO

It could be the day they order him, the day it's produced, the day it's packed, the day it's shipped or even the day you receive it. Or even before that. Why not after all? I love this idea and this question, because it really demonstrates how people connect with the robot. So, I don't have any official answer to provide Takuji, but Ill talk about that.

A hefty layer of protection guarded the seats, floors and handles from radioactive dust. Hong wore a face mask and gloves to limit his own exposure. Like the other passengers, he had dressed in old clothes that he was willing to toss after the trip. Witter / ? Les chats apprennent aux robots à retomber sur leurs pattes. Only 10% of users actually benefit from robots. Let’s change that ! At Robobusiness, the second workshop we attended was the Advanced Manufacturing Workshop, led by Elena Messina from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

Only 10% of users actually benefit from robots. Let’s change that !

What was this session about ? A new vision for U. S. manufacturing is emerging to strengthen U. Five Myths and Facts About Robotics Technology Today. Ever faster processors, cheaper sensors, abundant open-source code, ubiquitous connectivity, and the advent of 3D printing are some of the forces behind the recent proliferation of robots. As I see things, these forces will only get stronger, and as more robots become part of our lives—in homes, offices, factories, hospitals, and many other places—we'll inevitably face challenges involving our adoption and use of robots. Some observers are voicing their fears about a decline in human-human interaction, while others warn of an irreversible and senseless loss of jobs, with robots taking over tasks that, they argue, should not be performed by machines (such as caring for the elderly).

Witter / ? The world and its ageing workforce need robots. An OECD report: Policy challenges for the next 50 years indicates that “over the coming decades labor forces will age substantially” and that “population ageing will result in a decline in the potential labor force… causing a negative labor supply.” They then ominously add: “An ageing workforce and longer working-lives will mean a longer period where depreciation of skills and technological change risk making human capital obsolete.” Another report by Moody’s quoted in the Financial Times states: “The world will have 13 “super-aged” societies by 2020, up from just three today, according to a report that warns of ageing populations becoming a drag on global economic growth.Most of the countries set to join the “super-aged” club by 2020 are in Europe and include the Netherlands, France, Sweden, Portugal, Slovenia and Croatia. RoboCup 2014 - Are Soccer Robots Making Progress? The original goal of the annual RoboCup contest was that by 2050 a team of soccer robots should be able to beat the human world champions.

Each year we have a chance to gage progress and this year we saw evidence that robots are getting better Like the FIFA World cup, this year's RoboCup took place in Brazil and hundreds of students from 45 countries took part. Although the event is no longer just about robot soccer, it is still its headline act and rightly so as it challenges roboticists to engineer machines that can see accurately, respond appropriately and move quickly in a rapidly changing environment. Motion Control: Global Robotics Industry to Set New Record in 2014. "In 2013, about 179,000 industrial robots were sold worldwide, again an all-time high and 12% more than in 2012," said Arturo Baroncelli, International Federation of Robotics (IFR), president at the Automatica show in Munich in June. "Incoming orders in the first four months of 2014 increased remarkably, and requests from all customer industries are on the rise. Vision-Enabled Robots Improve Automation.

Greg Raciti, Faber Industrial Technologies, and Steve Zhu, Teledyne Dalsa Thanks to falling prices, better hardware and improved software, vision-enabled robots are increasingly found in smaller and smaller automation and manufacturing operations, where they improve assembly processes, conduct quality checks and enable automated final inspection. Industrial robots have come a long way. They first appeared more than 50 years ago, according to the International Federation of Robotics. Deployed on an automobile assembly line, the first system sequenced and stacked hot pieces of die-cast metal, doing so with a 4000-pound arm. The robot cost $65,000, with movement programmed in joint coordinates and movement accuracies in the 0.0001-in. range, or about 250 µm.

Today, small industrial robots from Denso Robotics and other suppliers weigh about 75 lb and are capable of composite speeds of 8.5 m/s or more. If Robots Drove, How Much Safer Would Roads Be? Human error is the culprit in 93 percent of automobile crashes — including the pileup last weekend that left Tracy Morgan in critical condition, caused, prosecutors say, by a truck driver who had been awake for 24 hours. Robots, on the other hand, don’t need to sleep. Nor do they get drunk or distracted by cellphones. That is why Marc Andreessen, the venture capitalist, wrote on Twitter about the accident, with his usual bravado, “Self-driving cars and trucks are a moral imperative.”

Seven adult-sized humanoid robots together for first time in the U.S. Seven adult-sized humanoid robots will take the stage during Drexel University's celebration of National Engineers Week, in a first-of-its-kind assembly of robotic technology.

A showcase event on Feb. 20 will introduce all seven of the Korean HUBO robots to the community. Their presence -- together in one place -- is a unique event that serves as a key milestone for a nationwide, collaborative robotics research effort funded by the National Science Foundation. Each robot is 1.3 meters, or about 4-feet, 3-inches, tall. Festo’s Amazing SmartBird. Assumes leadership role in steering the school : science. Acroban, le robot humanoïde qui évolue et apprend comme un enfant. Des chercheurs du laboratoire de l’INRIA ont mis au point le premier robot humanoïde capable d’interagir avec son environnement, et que l’on peut prendre par la main, comme un enfant.

Découvrez-le dans le communiqué de presse ci-dessous. Le robot Acroban sera présenté lors du salon INNOROBO du 23 au 25 mars 2011 à Lyon. L’équipe de recherche Flowers de l’INRIA Bordeaux – Sud-Ouest, en collaboration avec le LaBRI (Université Bordeaux1), a conçu le premier robot humanoïde permettant de créer des interactions physiques fluides, intuitives et robustes, même avec des enfants. Pour être produit à plus grande échelle, et répondre à des enjeux sociétaux comme le maintien à domicile des personnes âgées, un robot personnel doit être peu coûteux et suffisamment fiable pour être mis en contact avec des personnes, adultes comme enfants.

Researchers have shown how to create morphing robotic mechanisms and shape-shifting sculptures from a single sheet of paper in a method reminiscent of origami, the Japanese art of paper folding. The new method, called Kaleidogami, uses computational algorithms and tools to create precisely folded structures. "The approach represents new geometric algorithms and methods to create works of kinetic, or moving, art," said Karthik Ramani, Purdue University's Donald W. Feddersen Professor of Mechanical Engineering. "Scientists and engineers are often motivated by the beauty of artistic representations while artists and architectural designers want to harness concepts from science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

One of our aims is to provide a new geometry-inspired art form, reconfigurable structures, in the emerging field of kinetic art. " A whisker-inspired approach to tactile sensing.
