Robot can be programmed by casually talking to it (w/video) | Robotics in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it

Robots are getting smarter, but they still need step-by-step instructions for tasks they haven’t performed before. Before you can tell your household robot “Make me a bowl of ramen noodles,” you’ll have to teach it how to do that. Since we’re not all computer programmers, we’d prefer to give those instructions in English, just as we’d lay out a task for a child...Read More....

Robots transform into furniture at EPFL | Robotics in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it
Scientists from the Biorobotics Laboratory (BIOROB) at EPFL in Switzerland have developed small robotic modules that can change their shape to create reconfigurable furniture. Like Lego bricks, these robotic pieces, or Roombots, can be stacked upon each other to create various structures. Each piece has three motors that allow the module to pivot with three degrees of freedom, and each also has a battery and wireless connection.

Students dive into designing and developing autonomous RoboBoat vehicles with Raspberry Pi’s

Students dive into designing and developing autonomous RoboBoat vehicles with Raspberry Pi’s | Robotics in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it
  Students dive into designing and developing autonomous RoboBoat vehicles By Sergio Biagioni For the past year, 13 student teams have been designing and developing autonomous surface vehicles (ASV) to compete against one another in the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) 7th Annual International RoboBoat Competition held in July in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The student teams showed off their Aquatic Surface Vehicles (ASVs) in an aquatic obstacle course that included navigating buoys, autonomous docking, channel following, and identifying targets visually, thermally, and acoustically. To make things difficult, all of these tasks had to be performed autonomously. The student teams were given access to MATLAB and Simulink as well as technical support and training prior to the race as part of the MathWorks sponsorship of the AUVSI Foundation competitions. As with other student competitions, a project-based learning initiative like RoboBoat provides a hands-on opportunity for teams to solve real-world engineering problems without a predefined solution. For the AUVSI Foundation RoboBoat competitions, students are faced with the overarching challenge of finding a solution to run the right algorithms as fast and efficiently as possible without overloading the PC. Since students are balancing their work on the teams with their normal...
