Carsim Mechanical simulation

Today, I want to introduce carsim simulation program, and show how VehicleSim models can be extended using simulink(Matlab). Carsim Introduction Video CarSim simulates the dynamic behavior of passenger cars, racecars, light trucks, and utility vehicles. CarSim animates simulated tests and outputs over 800 calculated variables to plot and analyze, or export to other software such as MATLAB, Excel, and optimization…

Tutorial of surface electromyography Part 2:Processing

Why do we need process sEMG? : Raw sEMG signal has many artifact(Motion, ECG e.t.c.). And usage of sEMG is diffrent. So we have to process Raw sEMG signals. There are so many artifact of sEMG signals. But I introduce mainly occured artifact of sEMG signals. 1. ECG noise : some part of muscle near vein can be mixed with…

This Robot’s Acrobatic Leaps Are the Coolest Thing You’ll See Today

 I found this article from IEEE Spectrum website, this robot was presented at ICRA this year by Aaron M. Johnson fro m the University of Pennsylvania’s Kod Lab. which has a unique legs structure caught my interest.  Legs have an advantage over wheels when it comes to rough terrain, but the articulated legs often found on walking robots require complex, specialized…

Autonomous Vehicle

An autonomous car,also known as a robotic car, or informally as driverless or self-driving, is an autonomous vehicle capable of fulfilling the human transportation capabilities of a traditional car. As an autonomous vehicle, it is capable of sensing its environment and navigating without human input. Robotic cars exist mainly as prototypes and demonstration systems, but are likely to become more widespread in the near future. Autonomous vehicles sense their…

Columbia University’s low-cost robotic arm is controlled by facial muscles, we go face-on

We’ve seen Emotiv’s Epoc headset control cars and trapeze acts, but now a small posse of students at Columbia University is teaching it how to control a robotic arm. The appendage, aptly named ARM for Assistive Robotic Manipulator, was envisioned as a wheelchair attachment to help the disabled. According to the team, the goal was to keep costs in the…

MIT Cheetah Robot Runs Fast, and Efficiently

The Cheetah robot developed at MIT’s Biomimetic Robotics Lab first grabbed our attention when the project was announced back in 2009. In the years that followed few details emerged about its progress, until finally in July 2012 the lab posted videos of the robot walking on YouTube. Now, at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), the MIT…

(Refered Post)Robots will be FIFA champions – if they keep their eyes on the ball

The DARwIn-OP humanoid soccer-playing robot may look like a toy, but is a platform for groundbreaking artificial intelligence research.          David Budden   We already know robots manufacture cars, work in factories, even vacuum our homes – but could they form a world-beating soccer team? The question seems like ripe pickings for a movie mogul, given Hollywood’s long-standing fascination with robots.…
