05/10/2021Whether in the factory, in the operating room or on Mars, the areas of application for modern robots are vastly diverse. This places enormous demands on the capabilities of the systems and leads to increasingly complex development processes. The Robotics Innovation Center of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence presents a approach that is set to revolutionize robot development.
21/09/2021Physics researchers at the University of Bath in the UK discover a new physical effect relating to the interactions between light and twisted materials – an effect that is likely to have implications for emerging new nanotechnologies in communications, nanorobotics and ultra-thin optical components.
11/08/2021Veterans Affairs researchers with the VA Bedford and VA Boston health care systems in Massachusetts have developed a non-invasive optical technique to help detect Alzheimer’s disease. The new technique uses spectroscopy – measuring how light is scattered and absorbed when passing through matter – to identify structural changes in the brain.
10/08/2021A team of Beckman researchers led by Kianoush Falahkheirkhah, a graduate student in chemical and biomolecular engineering, and Rohit Bhargava, director of the Cancer Center at Illinois, developed new software to boost infrared imaging-based cancer diagnosis.
20/07/2021A team of researchers from the University of Maryland has 3D printed a soft robotic hand that is agile enough to play Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. - and win!
