로봇에 심어둔 상상으로 미래의 봉우리를 터트리다

호기심과 상상력을 발전시켜 ‘휴머노이드’를 연구하는 로봇공학자 코로나19 팬데믹의 공포 속에서 1년여를 지나온 전 세계 모든 사람에게 마스크를 쓰지 않고 대화하며 생활했던 과거는 다시 돌아가고 싶은 순간이자 가까운 미래세상에서 이루어졌으면 하는 변화이다. 한시도 안심할 수 없는 상황에서 과거는 너무나 그리운 시간임에 틀림없다. 하지만 세상의 시간은 너무나 빠른 속도로 흘러가므로, 과거 속에 머물기보다는 앞으로 어떻게 살아갈지에 대한 생각을 멈추지 않아야 한다. 박재흥…

Japanese Humanoid Robot Dominates DARPA Challenge

A Japanese robotics team dominated the field after an ambitious two-day competition that saw robots driving cars, climbing ladders and wielding power tools. A two-legged robot built by engineers at SCHAFT Inc., a Japanese robotics firm, won the DARPA Robotics Challenge Trials(Dec. 21), scoring the most points across tasks that tested the robots’ mobility, dexterity, perception and autonomous operations. Florida-based…

Robot cooks make pancakes

Cooking is an art sometimes forgotten in the robotics world, but James, the PR2 robot, and Rosie, another robot from CoTeSys (Cognition for Technical Systems) in Munich have joined forces to show that robots can be of great use in the kitchen as well. They made some pretty successful-looking pancakes and used various tools around the Assisted Kitchen to show off their skills.…

Hoaloha Robotics Developing Socially Assistive Hardware Platform

  Last we heard from Hoaloha Robotics was back in September of 2010, when the company was initially founded by Microsoft veteran Tandy Trower, who’d led the Microsoft Robotics Group for several years. According to some press at the time, Hoaloha was all about “developing a common interface and software that will make assistive robots easy to use and customize with applications, similar to…

Tiny Jumping Robot Finds Room for a Tail

I wanna introduce tiny jumping robot which can find room for a tail. I was impressed because of how tiny it was, but also because it could change direction, self-right, and jump, all using just one single motor and a clever arrangement of gears. A new upgrade (inspired by research from UC Berkely) adds a tail to the mix, giving this…

Pointclouds from outdoor stereo cameras

source: http://www.pointclouds.org We tested an algorithm, developed by Alex Trevor in the previous HRI code sprint. This algorithm segments points using their normal distribution, this makes it very sensitive to noise. Basically, this algorithm computes a disparity for a stereo pair using its own dense matching method, implemented by Federico Tombari. But I additionally tested it using disparity maps precomputed by HRI. Here…
