The CoCoRo project aims to create an autonomous swarm of interacting, cognitive robots.


CoCoRo will develop a swarm of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) that are able to interact with each other and which can balance tasks. Focal tasks of the CoCoRo-swarms are: ecological monitoring, searching, maintaining, exploring and harvesting resources in underwater habitats. Generating small autonomous underwater vehicles that are able to organize themselves with local neighbours.Generating robust swarming motion principles that work also in natural, noisy and dynamic environments.Generating swarm-level cognition within such an underwater swarm.Comparing the achieved level of global cognition to biological reference organisms.Developing cognition-based mechanisms that allow long-term survivability of systems.Taking an interdisciplinary approach to address collective cognition and self-awareness issues.Developing novel autonomic systems capable of swarm-level self-identification.

Cubli – A cube that can jump up, balance, and walk across your desk. Update: New video of final robot!

Cubli – A cube that can jump up, balance, and walk across your desk

My colleagues at the Institute for Dynamic Systems and Control at ETH Zurich have created a small robotic cube that can autonomously jump up and balance on any one of its corners . Update This latest version of the Cubli can jumping up, balanc, and even “walk”. This new version is self contained with respect to power and uses three slightly modified bicycle brakes instead of the metal barriers used in the previous version. We are currently developing learning algorithms that allow the Cubli to automatically learn and adjust the necessary parameters if a jump fails due to the deterioration of the brakes and changes in inertia, weight, or slope of the surface.

GuardBot. Hotel Staffed by Robots Opening in Japan. A hotel with robot staff and face recognition instead of room keys will open this summer at Huis Ten Bosch theme park in Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan.

Hotel Staffed by Robots Opening in Japan

Robots will provide a wide range of services at the hotel, including room cleaning, front desk and porter services, meaning you could be checked in by robots and have robots carry your bags your room! The hotel’s first building complex is scheduled to open on 17 July 2015 with 72 rooms, followed by another 72-room building in 2016. A single room will be priced at around £40 (¥7,000) per night and a twin room will cost around £50 (¥9,000). Initially the hotel will have 10 robot members of staff, but Huis Ten Bosch company President Hideo Sawada told a news conference. “In the future, we’d like to have more than 90 percent of hotel services operated by robots.” The hotel's name, Henn-na Hotel, reflects how the hotel will “change with cutting-edge technology,” a company official said.

Study: Autonomics Will Kill Half of North America's Jobs 

Are our workforces and economies ready to face the challenges of automation? Nearly half of total North American employment is at risk of replacement by automation or computerization, according to a recent study by Oxford researchers. The trend even has a new name: autonomics. The current generation of robots and automation can "think" and "learn" in limited ways.

'Origami' robot bends and flattens to fit into ANY space.

Scientists were inspired to create the wheels by origami 'magic ball pattern'They were joined by experts from Harvard to develop a robot using the technology, which can climb steps with easeThe diameter of the wheels grows and shrinks automatically to enable the robot to either be strong or speedyTechnology could one day be used to build interplanetary rovers By Sarah Griffiths Published: 11:57 GMT, 17 June 2014 | Updated: 14:02 GMT, 17 June 2014 Think of origami and you may imagine delicate paper cranes or fortune tellers.

'Origami' robot bends and flattens to fit into ANY space

But the art of folding paper to create 3D shapes has been used to make a flexible robot. Roboticists have shown off two designs of origami-inspired wheel systems that allow a robot to shape-shift and climb a flight of steps using their intricate but strong wheels. Scroll down for video Best of both worlds: Roboticists have shown off designs of origami-inspired wheel systems (pictured) that allow robots to shape-shift and switch from either being fast or strong Magic? Overview. AIDA is part of the Sociable Car - Senseable Cities project which is a collaboration between the Personal Robots Group and the Senseable Cities Group at MIT.


The AIDA robot was designed and built by the Personal Robots Group, while the Senseable Cities Group is working on intelligent navigation algorithms. The aim of the Personal Robot's portion of the project is to expand the relationship between the car and the driver with the goal of making the driving experience more effective, safer, and more enjoyable. As part of this expanded relationship, we plan to introduce a new channel of communication between automobile and driver/passengers. This channel would be modeled on fundamental aspects of human social interaction including the ability to express and perceive affective/emotional state and key social behaviors. Currently the AIDA research platform consists of a fully functional robotic prototype embedded in a stand-alone automobile dash. Do Robots Rule the Galaxy? Astronomy news this week bolstered the idea that the seeds of life are all over our solar system.

Do Robots Rule the Galaxy?

NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft identified carbon compounds at Mercury's poles. Probing nearly 65 feet beneath the icy surface of a remote Antarctic lake, scientists uncovered a community of bacteria existing in one of Earth's darkest, saltiest and coldest habitats. And the dune buggy Mars Science Lab is beginning to look for carbon in soil samples. But the rulers of our galaxy may have brains made of the semiconductor materials silicon, germanium and gallium. In other words, they are artificially intelligent machines that have no use — or patience — for entities whose ancestors slowly crawled out of the mud onto primeval shores.

PHOTOS: Alien Robots That Left Their Mark on Mars The idea of malevolent robots subjugating and killing off humans has been the staple of numerous science fiction books and movies. My favorite self-parody of this idea is the 1970 film "Colossus: the Forbin Project. " Mecanum Track Revision D3.14 (GrabCAd Nesher Amir) - SolidWorks, Other, STEP / IGES, Solid Edge - 3D CAD model.

RoboRoach : un cyborg mi robot, mi… cafard en vente !

Il y a quelques mois un projet complètement dingue a germé sur le site Kickstarter. Ce projet à l’allure très amusant peut aussi faire froid dans le dos. Les cafards utilisent les antennes qu’ils ont sur la tête pour se déplacer, elles sont très sensibles aux odeurs et à ce qu’elles touchent. Le principe du RoboRoach est simple, c’est une fusion de neurosciences comportementales et d’ingénierie des neurones (oui j’ai dit simple). Pour recevoir cette puce, le cafard doit subir une intervention chirurgicale (pauvre petite bête), mais rassurez-vous, c’est sous anesthésie ! Et vous qu’en pensez-vous ?
