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.

New technique could enable assembly of circuit boards and displays with more minute components.

New soft actuators could make soft robots less bulky
Posted on Friday October 11, 2019

Engineers have developed a way to build soft robots that are compact, portable and multifunctional. The advance was made possible by creating soft, tubular actuators whose movements are electrically controlled, making them easy to integrate with small electronic components. As a proof of concept, engineers used the new actuators to build an untethered, battery-powered, walking soft robot and a soft gripper.

Biologically-inspired skin improves robots' sensory abilities
Posted on Thursday October 10, 2019

Sensitive synthetic skin enables robots to sense their own bodies and surroundings - a crucial capability if they are to be in close contact with people. Inspired by human skin, a team has developed a system combining artificial skin with control algorithms and used it to create the first autonomous humanoid robot with full-body artificial skin.
