Surgery combining O Arm and robotics: a boon for patients

The Indian Spinal Injuries Centre (ISIC), a super-specialty center, has become India’s first healthcare facility to combine the O-Arm, a cone beam CT scanner, with the MAZOR X™️ Stealth Edition, a robotic surgical system for performing spinal surgery with optimum precision. Any error made while operating on patients with spinal ailments, especially in difficult cases […]

Improve robot awareness according to environmental features

Roboticists have developed several systems that might ultimately operate in real-world environments. Because most real-world settings, particularly public areas, are dynamic and unpredictable, robots must be able to develop a thorough awareness of their surroundings to navigate them efficiently. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania’s GRASP Laboratory recently researched to investigate how features associated with […]

Robotic development portal launched by InOrbit

InOrbit, a cloud-based robot operations (RobOps) software vendor, has released its Developer Portal. The set of development tools is provided to help roboticists and software developers in building robotics systems. API endpoints, SDKs, and no-code embeds are all available through the Developer Portal. It also contains connections to an increasing number of open-source contributions, such […]

A Bipedal robot that can walk and fly

Leonardo, the robot developed by the California Institute of technology combines the use of legs and thrusters like those of drones. It can walk on two legs and fly at the same time. This opens up new possibilities for robot movements. Leonardo is a bipedal robot, and such robots are generally capable of navigating complicated […]

More secured communication medium for robots

The adoption of blockchain technology as a communication medium for a robot team might provide security and protect against fraud. A blockchain offers a tamper-proof record of all transactions. So, the members of the robot’s team can eventually identify inconsistencies if any in the information trail. Leaders use tokens to communicate moves and add transactions […]

A robot that finds lost things

Researchers at MIT have developed a robotic arm called RFusion that can find lost things. The system consists of a camera and a radio frequency antenna attached to its gripper. It combines signals from the antenna with visual information from the camera to identify and recover an object, even if it is buried behind a […]

Amazon Astro: A robot with no cause?

Amazon has released its long-rumoured home robot “Astro”. The company has been working on this for the past four years. The 2-foot-tall, 20-pound robot features a 10-inch touchscreen, an array of sensors, cameras, and microphones, and can wheel around your home across many directions. Astro underscores Amazon’s approach to robotics, an area in which the […]
