Press conference held by Willow Garage, a robotics firm in Menlo Park, Calif., to discuss its PR2 Beta Program, in which 11 institutions in the U.S., Europe, and Japan will receive PR2 robots to develop new applications. The event, which took place 26 May 2010, was recorded via Texai telepresence robot created by Willow Garage.
Justin is a dexterous two-arm humanoid developed at DLR, the German space agency. DLR reporter Daniel Finger demonstrates the robot’s teleoperation system at the International Aerospace Exhibition 2010 in Berlin.
The Darmstadt Dribblers have some of the most impressive humanoid robots in the RoboCup competition. For the second year in a row, the team from the Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany, became the champions in the kid-size humanoid league.
Can a team of soccer-playing robots beat the human world champions by 2050? That’s the ultimate goal of RoboCup, an international tournament where teams of soccer robots compete in various categories, from small wheeled bots to adult-size humanoids.
An autonomous van developed by the University of Parma’s Artificial Vision and Intelligent Systems Laboratory (VisLab), drives itself on a highway, as part of a 13,000-km, three-month journey from Italy to China.
Israeli researchers have developed a device that converts nasal pressure into electrical signals, which could enable paralyzed people to type text and surf the Web. In this video, the researchers, led by Noam Sobel, a professor of neurobiology at the Weizmann Institute of Science, in Rehovot, demonstrate “sniff control” of an electric wheelchair.
Researchers led by Professor Heinz Ulbrich at the Institute of Applied Mechanics at the Technical University of Munich are developing superfast camera-orientation systems that can reproduce the movements of the human eye.
