Right here’s a bit of bit extra IRL footage of Apptronik’s Apollo, which was introduced this week.

TruckBot is an autonomous robotic that may unload each truck trailers and transport containers at a fee of as much as 1,000 circumstances per hour. It reaches as much as 52 toes into the truck trailer or transport container and might deal with containers weighing as much as 50 lbs, together with containers with packing complexities and combined SKU hundreds.

These high-speed robotic fingers from the late Nineteen Nineties and 2000s are nonetheless spectacular.
That is possibly the jauntiest robotic I’ve ever seen.

Seems, in case you make toes into hydrofoil shapes and put a pair of legs right into a water present that’s been disturbed by a cylinder, you’ll get a reasonably convincing organic strolling gait.

People are usually good at whole-body manipulation, however robots battle with such duties. To the robotic, every spot the place the field may contact any level on the service’s fingers, arms, and torso represents a contact occasion that it should cause about. With billions of potential contact occasions, planning for this process rapidly turns into intractable. Now MIT researchers have discovered a method to simplify this course of, often called contact-rich manipulation planning.
Okay, however I wish to know extra about Mr. Bucket <3.

By collaborating with Dusty on the Stanford College Bridge Venture, California Drywall was capable of minimize structure time in half and fast-track the set up mission.

PILOTs for robotic INspection and upkeep Grounded on superior clever platforms and prototype purposes (PILOTING) is an H2020 European mission coordinated by CATEC. The number of inspection and upkeep operations thought-about inside the mission requires using completely different robotic programs. A collection of robotic automobiles from PILOTING companions has been tailored/developed and built-in inside the PILOTING I&M platform.

A NASA flight marketing campaign goals to allow drones to land safely on rooftop hubs referred to as vertiports for future supply of individuals and items. The marketing campaign can also result in enhancements in climate prediction.
