Video Friday is your weekly collection of superior robotics movies, collected by your mates at IEEE Spectrum robotics. We additionally put up a weekly calendar of upcoming robotics occasions for the following few months. Please send us your events for inclusion.
IEEE SSRR 2023: 13–15 November 2023, FUKUSHIMA, JAPAN
Humanoids 2023: 12–14 December 2023, AUSTIN, TEX.
Cybathlon Challenges: 02 February 2024, ZURICH, SWITZERLAND
Take pleasure in immediately’s movies!
Digit, our human-centric robotic, can now self-right and stand again up after it falls. That is footage from our testing lab, the place we deliberately disable the notion methods that may usually keep away from/alter to obstacles stopping Digit from falling. For the needs of this take a look at, we pressure Digit to fall in a managed atmosphere to display our new self-righting and recovering capability.

With our multipick performance, Stretch is unlocking the following stage of automated unloading. Stretch can now transfer a number of packing containers with a single swing of the arm. In typical delivery containers crammed with 1000’s of packing containers, the robotic is hitting considerably increased charges of productiveness.

Since their mass manufacturing within the early 2000s, vacuum robots have emerged as extremely profitable industrial merchandise within the discipline of residence automation. At KIMLAB, we’ve carried out a cell manipulator primarily based on a vacuum robotic and an add-on mechanism by using our PAPRAS (Plug-And-Play Robotic Arm System).
Blissful 100 Ikeadroneversary to Verity!

If you happen to’re questioning what sort of black magic is making this work, the reply is one of the best sort of black magic: magnets.
Honda is exploring how our all-electric prototype Honda Autonomous Work Car (AWV) may tackle the challenges of labor shortages, security and safety, and emissions reductions to convey new worth to airfield operations. The Honda AWV is designed to spice up workforce productiveness and help repetitive duties that permit firms to focus their workforce on value-added actions. First launched as an idea at CES 2018, the Honda AWV is now advancing towards commercialization.

The SMART Progressive Coaching Community is a three way partnership between academia and trade, offering scientific and private improvement of younger researchers within the multidisciplinary fields of sentimental robotics and good supplies. SMART will understand the technologically and scientifically formidable breakthroughs to use good, stimuli-responsive materials methods for actuation, sensing and self-healing capabilities for clever tender gadgets.
