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 robot picks a peck of peppers and more
Posted on Sunday September 23, 2018

SWEEPER is designed to operate in a single stem row cropping system, with non-clustered fruits and little leaf occlusion. The team spearheaded efforts to improve the robot's ability to detect ripe produce using computer vision, and has played a role in defining the specifications of the robot's hardware and software interfaces, focusing on supervisory control activities.

Researchers teach computers to see optical illusions
Posted on Friday September 21, 2018

By making a neural-network computer model that can be fooled by optical illusions like humans, the researchers advanced knowledge of the human visual system and may help improve artificial vision.

'Robotic Skins' turn everyday objects into robots
Posted on Wednesday September 19, 2018

When you think of robotics, you likely think of something rigid, heavy, and built for a specific purpose. New 'Robotic Skins' technology flips that notion on its head, allowing users to animate the inanimate and turn everyday objects into robots.

Creating 3-D-printed 'motion sculptures' from 2-D videos
Posted on Wednesday September 19, 2018

A new system uses an algorithm that can take 2-D videos and turn them into 3-D printed 'motion sculptures' that show how a human body moves through space.

Novel flying robot mimics rapid insect flight
Posted on Thursday September 13, 2018

A novel insect-inspired flying robot, developed by TU Delft researchers from the Micro Air Vehicle Laboratory (MAVLab), is presented in Science. Experiments with this first autonomous, free-flying and agile flapping-wing robot -- carried out in collaboration with Wageningen University & Research - improved our understanding of how fruit flies control aggressive escape maneuvers. Apart from its further potential in insect flight research, the robot's exceptional flight qualities open up new drone applications.
