bionicswift, an ultralight bionic bird from festo that flies like real birds

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

The German robot company Festo has so far developed a number of interesting prototype robots that resembled kangaroos, jellyfish, and more. One of the latest creations of this company is a bionic bird named BionicSwift, and it is truly impressive.BionicSwift is equipped with wings that imitate the plumage of real birds, as you can see in the video below, it is capable of flying safely like real birds and in a coordinated pattern in a defined airspace. The robotic “feathered” bird has a wingspan of 68 cm, a body length of 44.5 cm, and a weight of 42 grams. Inside the body, Festo has crammed the wing movement mechanism, as well as the communication technology and the controllers for flapping. There is also room for a brushless electric motor, two servo motors, a battery, the gear unit, and various circuit boards.The wings are made with “lamellae” (feathers) made from overlapping sheets of ultralight and flexible foam, but at the same time very robust. The individual lamellae fan out during the wing upstroke, allowing air to flow through the wing. This means the birds require less power to propel the wing upwards. And when BionicSwift flaps its wings down, they close to …

Brian McClure, Churchview Farm with Matrix Animal Health agent Robert ShannonBrian, alongside his father David, run a herd of 100 cows, milked through two Lely robots. The second robot having only recently been installed is allowing Brian to increase his cow numbers further. Cows are housed all year round and three cuts of quality silage are made every year.Silage quality is paramount to the McClure’s philosophy of maintaining healthy, efficient and productive cows averaging 10500lts.Matrix Animal Health sales agent for Co.Antrim, Robert Shannon chatted to Brian this week to see how he was getting on with the Healthy Udder Boluses.“We were having quite a few problems keeping cases of clinical mastitis under control and had been using an awful lot of antibiotics with varying success,” said Brian.“This lead to the financial implications of lots of wasted milk, as well as a constant fear of contaminating the milk. “ I have also been very concerned over the potential for antibiotics to get into the food chain and believe that farmers as food producers play a major role in the fight to combat this.“I was talking to a friend who recommended I would try the ‘Healthy Udder …

Likewise, its CEO believes that at some point It will be an ideal companion to help with household chores.According to VentureBeat, the founder of Boston Dynamics, Marc Raibert, has revealed plans for Spot in the medium and long term. He has done it in an online conference Collision from Home 2020 and in it he has talked about what they have prepared for Spot soon. And it is that, although currently the ideal use they recommend for Spot is to do dangerous tasks for a human, they want to expand this to more activities.Moving furniture, delivering packages and even picking up dirty clothesThe first thing that we will see soon is the arrival of a robotic arm attached to Spot to enhance its capabilities. This robotic arm is not really new, we already saw it in some test videos, although now they …

MIT-designed robot can disinfect a warehouse floor in 30 minutes — and could one day be employed in grocery stores and schools

mit-designed robot can disinfect a warehouse floor in 30 minutes — and could one day be employed in grocery stores and schools

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

The university’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) worked with Ava Robotics — a company that focuses on creating telepresence robots — and the Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) to develop a robot that uses a custom UV-C light to disinfect surfaces and neutralize aerosolized forms of the coronavirus. Development on this project began in early April, and one of the researchers said that it came in direct response to the pandemic. The results have been encouraging enough that the researchers say that autonomous UV disinfection could be done in other environments such as supermarkets, factories and restaurants.Covid-19 mainly spreads via airborne transmission, and it is capable of remaining on surfaces for several days. With states across the US reporting a surge in cases and no concrete timetable for a possible vaccine, there is currently no near-term end to the pandemic. That leaves schools and supermarkets looking for solutions to effectively disinfect areas. While household cleaning solutions are able to reduce the spread of the virus, an autonomous robot capable of quickly and efficiently cleaning large areas such as warehouses or grocery stores could prove to be essential. The researchers used the base of one of Ava Robotics’ …

Former Imagineers create robotic dolphin that could replace those in aquariums

former imagineers create robotic dolphin that could replace those in aquariums

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Walt Conti and Roger Holzberg, former creative director and vice president for Walt Disney Imagineering — together with the team at special effects company Edge Innovations — have created a robotic dolphin that could potentially replace the real thing in aquariums and theme parks.

According to Blooloop, as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, China has implemented strict limitations on the import and export of wild animals. With Edge Innovations’ robotic dolphin, China could replace the living creatures in their tanks and avoid the bans altogether.

[embedded content]
The dolphin weighs 595 pounds, has a battery life that lasts 10 hours, and it can survive in a saltwater environment for about 10 years. It was designed to simulate the movements and appearance of an adolescent bottlenose dolphin, and has a realistic skeletal and muscle structure to imitate the real thing.

Unfortunately, it is more like a high-tech puppet than an autonomous creature, as it has to be controlled by a nearby operator responding to commands and interactions in real time. The dolphin has no cameras, sensors, or other intelligent aspects to make it come to life on its own.

According to Gizmodo, the dolphin is being tested for attractions at a new aquarium in China.

IIT Dynamic Legged Systems

While four-legged robots can achieve impressive feats, like pulling an airplane or climbing a fence, they still have a few limitations. In most cases, they need a fairly large surface to walk on. A team of Italian robotics researchers is looking to change that. They’ve created a robotic controller that allows a quadruped robot to walk across a thin beam.The four-legged robot can balance on just two legs and walk heel-toe. In digital simulations, the controller allowed a 90-kilogram robot to cross a bridge only six centimeters wide. In a video, the Instituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) researchers demonstrate how a robot equipped with the controller maintains balance on two feet even when it’s pushed around. The robot can even balance on two legs as it adjusts to different heights. The IIT team detailed their findings in a paper available on arXiv. 

[embedded content]In the US, Boston Dynamics’ Spot is arguably the most popular four-legged robot, but as researchers develop robotic controllers like IIT’s, we’ll likely see more quadruped applications.

Robotic Biped Walks On Inverse Kinematics

robotic biped walks on inverse kinematics

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Robotics projects are always a favorite for hackers. Being able to almost literally bring your project to life evokes a special kind of joy that really drives our wildest imaginations. We imagine this is one of the inspirations for the boom in interactive technologies that are flooding the market these days. Well, [Technovation] had the same thought and decided to build a fully articulated robotic biped.
Each leg has pivot points at the foot, knee, and hip, mimicking the articulation of the human leg. To control the robot’s movements, [Technovation] uses inverse kinematics, a method of calculating join movements rather than explicitly programming them. The user inputs the end coordinates of each foot, as opposed to each individual joint angle, and a special function outputs the joint angles necessary to reach each end coordinate. This part of the software is well commented and worth your time to dig into.
In case you want to change the height of the robot or its stride length, [Technovation] provides a few global constants in the firmware that will automatically adjust the calculations to fit the new robot’s dimensions. Of all the various aspects of this project, the detailed write-up impressed us …
