Researchers at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory propose new robotic gripper designs with humanlike tactile senses.
By taking inspiration from origami, this robot gripper can safely pick up and hold delicate objects while at the same time lift more than 100x its own weight.
Researchers from MIT and Harvard develop a cone-shaped origami robot hand that collapses in on objects, much like a Venus flytrap.
Weird-looking robots are the best robots.
Two new research projects out of MIT give robots the ability to sense what they are picking up. It's useful for delicate tasks such as picking up a potato chip.
Image recognition technology and tactile sensors are being joined together and are using each other to improve their abilities. A team at MIT CSAIL have created a database of tactile and ...
MIT has developed M-blocks 2.0, a set of robotic cubes that can roll, jump, spin, and self-assemble into different shapes.
Soft, biologically inspired robots have become one of the field’s most exciting offshoots, with machines that are capable of squeezing between obstacles and conforming to the world around ...
Robotic hands capable of picking up objects as fragile as a crisp by "sensing" objects have been developed by researchers. The Independent reports: Two new tools built by MIT's Computer ...
The MIT robot has an origami 'magic ball' skeleton, and is able to pick up delicate and irregularly-shaped objects.
Researchers at MIT CSAIL describe in a paper a new "debiasing" method for machine learning algorithms that preserves their accuracy.
Researchers from MIT give robotic grippers a better sense what they’re gripping and how much force to use.
It’s more Venus fly trap than hand.
