Robotit, erityisesti autonomiset, joiden ei välttämättä tarvitse olla humanoidirobotteja, ovat aina kiinnostaneet minua. Itsekseen, tai muiden robottikavereiden ja ihmistenkin kanssa, maailmaa ihmettelevä ja oudossa ympäristössä selviytymistä yrittävä robotti on varsin mielenkiintoinen sekä ohjelmistojensa että rakenteellisten ominaisuuksiensa kannalta. Sellaisen tekemisessä on edelleen melkoisia haasteita, mutta eiköhän lähitulevaisuudessa nähdä itsestään ajelevien autojen lisäksi myös itsenäisesti toimivia palvelurobotteja sekä siviili- että sotilastehtävissä. Tämä jälkimmäinen aihealue näkyy etenevän melkoista vauhtia eräässä suuressa läntisessä valtiossa, mutta muillakin tekniikan kärkimailla on vastaavia kehityshankkeita.

Robot developed for automated assembly of designer nanomaterials
Posted on Wednesday April 18, 2018

Engineers have developed a robot that can identify, collect, and manipulate two-dimensional nanocrystals. The robot stacked nanocrystals to form the most complex van der Waals heterostructure produced to date, with much less human intervention than the manual operations previously used to produce van der Waals heterostructures. This robot allows unprecedented access to van der Waals heterostructures, which are attractive for use in advanced electronics.
