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.

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. But this collaboration is not just an idealistic pax de deux to promote interaction between flesh and metal. Wise has been trying to bring about this vision for years. 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?

Blame Futurama. Blame Star Wars. Pop culture has taught us a very narrow definition of the word robot. We picture a rolling machine, with human properties, that assists us with tasks.

Designing robots to help in a disaster. View the video Dennis Hong first spied Japan’s ruined nuclear power plant from a bus wrapped in plastic.

Designing robots to help in a disaster

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. More than three years earlier, after an earthquake and tsunamis battered Japan’s eastern coast, the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station blew, blasting radiation into the sea and sky. “It’s like a disaster site frozen in time,” Hong says. Workers toiled day and night to save the plant, but they had to get out as radiation levels rose.

Ideally, robots could take over for human crews. Witter / ? Les chats apprennent aux robots à retomber sur leurs pattes. Bientôt, les robots sauront retomber sur leurs pattes !

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).

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). Trade-offs will certainly be part of our growing reliance on robotics and automation. 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.” 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. 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. We expect that in 2014 growth of unit sales will continue with the same pace as in 2013. "Increases in All Regions Robot sales reached record levels in Asia/Australia, the Americas and in Africa. 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. 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.” Ces robots que vous croiserez peut-être dans un laboratoire.

Festival international du film scientifique - programme. Innorobo - Day 2 - Du côté du public! · Aratta. 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. They are fully actuated, which means that they have similar joints and movement capabilities to that of a human, including arms, legs and hands with fully functional fingers and an opposable thumb. "This is an historic event," said Dr. Festo’s Amazing SmartBird. Festo, a company we’ve featured here on [GaS] in the past for their extraordinary work on various forms of strange robotic organisms, is back with a new video showcasing their latest toy: A bionic bird that can take-off, fly, and land just like a real bird.
