Guard-free Robotics at the Assembly Technology Expo
DNTV 9/24/2008 Post a comment You don't usually see robots running in the middle of a trade-show floor without some sort of physical guarding to protect the innocent passerby from a robotic beat down. Pilz's "Safety Eye" system creates a protective barrier around the robot.
High-Dexterity Prosthetic Sensations
DNTV 6/16/2008 Post a comment DARPA demonstrates its high dexterity robotics on spokespersons Claudia Mitchell and Jesse Sullivan. They describe the phantom sensations and resistance related to prosthetic movement.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
