Researchers at the German Aerospace Center are studying the impact of collisions between wayward robots and crash-test dummies. They hope to develop effective accident-prevention systems.
In this video, a camera rests atop an ordinary car. Software developed by researchers at ETH Zurich and Toyota rapidly identifies pedestrians and other vehicles.
Robotic cars navigate around a miniature city created by researchers at Boston University while observing traffic rules and avoiding collisions.
This robot, Adelopod, was created by researchers at the University of Minnesota. It tumbles over itself--a simple, low-power way to get around.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos demonstrates the Kindle DX at Pace University, in New York City.
Researchers control microscopic magnets individually by manipulating magnetic and electric fields. The magnets could one day be used to assemble microscopic structures or deliver drugs to a cell.
Jack Vice, president and CTO of AnthroTronix, uses the AcceleGlove to control a robotic arm.
A system lets users manage a team of robots through cloud computing.
Graduate student Dennis Miaw demonstrates Second Skin. The system tracks his arm’s motion and vibrates to indicate how he should move to correct his position.
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon discuss a touch screen that also has morphing buttons.
