Predictive touch response mechanism is a step toward a tactile internet

Thu, 01/23/2020 - 21:26
A team of researchers has developed a method for enhancing haptic feedback experiences in human-to-machine applications that are typical in the Tactile Internet.

The easy route the easy way: New chip calculates the shortest distance in an instant

Thu, 01/23/2020 - 21:25
Combinatorial optimization problems are problems that arise in everyday situations, involving the puzzle of determining the shortest route that can be taken between multiple points. Researchers have developed a new chip that uses special components to calculate the shortest distance between up to 22 cities in a very short time.

How moon jellyfish get about

Thu, 01/23/2020 - 15:58
With their translucent bells, moon jellyfish (Aurelia aurita) move around the oceans in a very efficient way. Scientists have now used a mathematical model to investigate how these cnidarians manage to use their neural networks to control their locomotion even when they are injured. The results may also contribute to the optimization of underwater robots.

Integrating micro chips for electronic skin

Wed, 01/22/2020 - 21:00
Researchers present the first fully integrated flexible electronics made of magnetic sensors and organic circuits which opens the path towards the development of electronic skin.

Deep learning enables real-time imaging around corners

Thu, 01/16/2020 - 16:11
Researchers have harnessed the power of a type of artificial intelligence known as deep learning to create a new laser-based system that can image around corners in real time. With further development, the system might let self-driving cars 'look' around parked cars or busy intersections to see hazards or pedestrians.

Living robots built using frog cells

Mon, 01/13/2020 - 23:56
Scientists repurposed living frog cells -- and assembled them into entirely new life-forms. These tiny 'xenobots' can move toward a target and heal themselves after being cut. These novel living machines are neither a traditional robot nor a known species of animal. They're a new class of artifact: a living, programmable organism.

AI can detect low-glucose levels via ECG without fingerprick test

Mon, 01/13/2020 - 17:11
A new technology for detecting low glucose levels via ECG using a noninvasive wearable sensor, which with the latest artificial intelligence can detect hypoglycemic events from raw ECG signals has been made.

Can sea star movement inspire better robots?

Wed, 01/08/2020 - 22:03
What researchers have learned about how a sea star accomplishes movement synchronization, given that it has no brain and a completely decentralized nervous system, might help us design more efficient robotics systems.

Skin-like sensors bring a human touch to wearable tech

Wed, 01/08/2020 - 18:31
Researchers have developed a super-stretchy, transparent and self-powering sensor that records the complex sensations of human skin. Dubbed artificial ionic skin -- or AISkin for short -- the researchers believe the innovative properties of AISkin could lead to future advancements in wearable electronics, personal health care and robotics.
