cornell-baxter-robot-1Researchers at the Cornell University created an algorithm which enables robots to “coactively learn” from humans and make adjustments while an action is in progress. Their approach relies on a combination of machine learning, object and user association, and trajectory adjustment could allow robots to operate more reliably when it comes to object manipulation and… »

army-mil-robotic-tentacle-manipulator-1Development of snake-like technology underway at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory is moving the military toward sending more autonomous systems instead of Soldiers on search-and-rescue missions, a top priority in the most dangerous mission areas. Army researchers call it the Robotic Tentacle Manipulator, a developmental project that expands on snake robotics research introduced at Carnegie… »
