How current robotics advancements can have real-world applications The field of robotics is heating up with ever-growing innovations for healthcare. Forecasts from the UK's Visiongain suggest the overall world market for robotics in healthcare will surpass $3 billion this year and continue expanding to 2025. "Surgical robots are currently the most dynamic submarket within the overall robotics in healthcare market," the company states. "Medical robots that exhibit both clinical and economical benefits over existing healthcare solutions are in great demand." In the United States, Johnson & Johnson and Google have announced a strategic collaboration specifically to advance surgical robotics through new technologies designed to improve accuracy, cost efficiency and outcomes. The deal involves Ethicon, a medical device company under Johnson & Johnson, and Google's Life Sciences team. Real-world applications of robotics for providers Lab director Laurel D. "Our research has implications for all healthcare stakeholders," she says.

Hirose and Fukushima Laboratory Introduction We have been developing various kinds of robotic systems, such as snake-like arms and locomotors based on the biomechanical study of the real snake, quadruped walking robots, and crawler vehicles. We also have been studying basic disciplines, such as novel design principles for mechanical system, sensing devices, and control systems.

Headlines Open Radio: First-of-its-kind biomimicry radio show debuts in Turkey Zeynep Arhon is no stranger to finding success working in the world of biomimicry. She graduated with the first Biomimicry 3.8 Certified Biomimicry Professional program cohort in 2010. But Zeynep hit a major personal milestone in her biomimicry journey in October, when she launched "Biyomimikri: Doğadan Gelen İnovasyon" or "Biomimicry: Innovation from Nature"–the first radio show to focus exclusively on biomimicry. "It welcomes different perspectives and has a reputation for diverse, high-quality programming," she said of Açık Radyo. Zeynep first heard the term sustainability while listening to Açık Radyo in 2001. "The more I learned about sustainability, the more I questioned the impact of consumption and marketing in the world, and my role as a marketing professional," she said. Zeynep answered more questions about the new show, and about what kind of impact she hopes it makes: Describe the show in 2 sentences.

Robotics Robotics is the branch of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and computer science that deals with the design, construction, operation, and application of robots,[1] as well as computer systems for their control, sensory feedback, and information processing. These technologies deal with automated machines that can take the place of humans in dangerous environments or manufacturing processes, or resemble humans in appearance, behavior, and/or cognition. Many of today's robots are inspired by nature contributing to the field of bio-inspired robotics. The concept of creating machines that can operate autonomously dates back to classical times, but research into the functionality and potential uses of robots did not grow substantially until the 20th century.[2] Throughout history, robotics has been often seen to mimic human behavior, and often manage tasks in a similar fashion.

Japon: après le séisme, la terreur nucléaire [ Ajout 14 mars, 19h10 ] Au tour du réacteur no 2 de recevoir de l’eau de mer depuis lundi mais, alors que le soleil se lève mardi sur le Japon, le no 2 semble plus près d’une fusion (meltdown) que ses deux prédécesseurs ne l’ont jamais été. Le scénario est le même qu’avec les deux autres (le réacteur no 3, samedi, et le no 1, dimanche), mais en plus grave : le système de refroidissement du no 2 est lui aussi tombé en panne, l’eau de mer lui est injectée, mais en quantité insuffisante (les tuyaux ne sont pas tous fonctionnels, apparemment à cause des deux explosions de la fin de semaine). C’est donc le moment d’expliquer qu’une fusion, un « meltdown » n’est pas une explosion atomique en préparation. Il n’y a pas assez d’uranium 235 dans le réacteur pour créer une telle explosion, rassurent le New Scientist, le Christian Science Monitor et le New York Times, mais il y en a assez pour laisser s’échapper bien plus de radioactivité que ce que les ingénieurs ont laissé sortir depuis samedi.

Automaton Astro Teller has an unusual way of starting a new project: He tries to kill it. Teller is the head of X, formerly called Google X, the advanced technology lab of Alphabet. At X’s headquarters not far from the Googleplex in Mountain View, Calif., Teller leads a group of engineers, inventors, and designers devoted to futuristic “moonshot” projects like self-driving cars, delivery drones, and Internet-beaming balloons. To turn their wild ideas into reality, Teller and his team have developed a unique approach. It starts with trying to prove that whatever it is that you’re trying to do can’t be done—in other words, trying to kill your own idea. As Teller explains, “Instead of saying, ‘What’s most fun to do about this or what’s easiest to do first?’ The ideas that survive get additional rounds of scrutiny, and only a tiny fraction eventually becomes official projects; the proposals that are found to have an Achilles’ heel are discarded, and Xers quickly move on to their next idea.

14 Smart Inventions Inspired by Nature: Biomimicry: Nature as R&D Lab Companies seeking breakthrough products tend to ignore the greatest invention machine in the universe: life’s more than three-billion-year history of evolution by natural selection. What’s missing is a systematic way of capturing nature’s creativity, says Janine Benyus, a biologist, "innovation consultant" and author. Engineering practices are fractured, Benyus says. Experts in biomimetics study materials; bionics engineers work on prostheses and mechanics. "There was no umbrella term that encompassed everything from agriculture to business," she says. So she launched what she calls a new discipline, biomimicry, the title of her 1997 book. Click ahead for some striking examples of biomimicry. With assistance from Tom Randall.

Le Site des Robots, de la Robotique, des Exosquelettes et de leu Faune : La disparition des abeilles s'accélère et inquiète l'ONU | Science Un apiculteur montre ses abeilles mortes à cause des insecticides. Photo : AFP/FRANCK PERRY Amorcé dans les années 1960, le déclin des colonies d'abeilles s'accélère depuis 1998 et inquiète l'ONU. En effet, sur les 100 espèces qui fournissent 90 % de la nourriture dans le monde, plus de 70 % sont dépendants des abeilles pour leur pollinisation. Le PNUE demande la mise en place de mesures pour restaurer les habitats favorables aux abeilles. Parmi les causes mises en avant par le rapport de l'ONU pour expliquer la disparition des abeilles se trouvent : La diminution des plantes à fleurs : environ 20 000 espèces de celles-ci dont dépendent les abeilles pour se nourrir pourraient avoir disparu dans les prochaines décennies.
