Tutorial of surface electromyography Part 1: Making circuit and choosing muscle

As I mention before surface electromygraphy(sEMG) is bio-electric signal which is come from human muscle unit. This time I’m going to introduce making a circuit to extract sEMG from human body and how to find muscle location for sensors. 1. Muscle location Actually, It is very hard to find muscle location to general persons. Most of people don’t know much…

Sort of a Cross Between a Humanoid and a Quadruped

Source: IEEE Spectrum Germans Developing Robot Ape By Evan Ackerman Posted 24 Jun 2013 | 13:19 GMT Here’s why I think building a robot ape is a clever idea: like a real ape, it’s sort of a cross between a humanoid and a quadruped, in that it spends most of the time moving around on four limbs. But, it can…

Students create smartphone-powered driverless car

A large group of people in the lab are working on an autonomous vehicle. Although the vehicle does not have any where near the type of sensors that the google car uses, it is still pretty expensive. An impressive idea from some Australian students was to use the sensors of a phone to drive the car. Combining the gps of…

Robugtix’s 3D-printed T8 spiderbot will terrify your friends for $1,350 (video)

This is a very impressive application of kinematics.  In the world of robotics, especially in our lab, I have not seen many great applications of kinematics as it seems to be pretty straight forward.  The dynamics aspect of robotics is much more of the labs focus and is a really exciting area of research.  In terms of commercial applications, I…

Design your dream!

Hot weather burns your face and makes you tired. You are standing in the tough condition, which occurs not only from weather, but also from weak motivation. Once, you were a curious child, but since the college-preparatory you might lose the brilliant dream. If you need to find an excuse instead of recognition for your work, it means that you…

DARPA’s Virtual Robotics Challenge (VRC)

DARPA has announced the nine winners of its Virtual Robotics Challenge (VRC). The VRC, which ran from the 17th to the 21st of this month, was the first of three events that make up the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) and tasked the 26 competing teams with developing software that would enable a disaster response robot to quickly and successfully perform…

Grade School Bullies Should Train On This Resilient Balancing Bot

Hyeonjun found funny post as follow 🙂 Unless it’s been brought to life by Disney or Pixar, it’s hard to feel much empathy for robots, particularly the emotionless cyborg experiments being developed around the country. But not this little guy. Designed to stay on its feet no matter what happens, you can’t help but feel a little sad as you watch…

Computer Simulations of a Humanoid Robot Capable of Walking Like Fashion Models

This post is from the article ‘Computer Simulations of a Humanoid Robot Capable of Walking Like Fashion Models’ by Jimmy Or.   Abstract Conventional humanoid robots are unable to exhibit the kind of rolling movements at the waist and the body trunk stereo typically associated with the walking style of adult females. For example, a conventional robot cannot perform the walk known as “the catwalk”…
