“Sport ist Mord,” as Germans would say. Santa was very bold to get match for Christmas. Sadly, he had a minor accident whereas mountain climbing on Karlsruhe’s Mount Klotz, so Christmas is likely to be cancelled this yr. Will our group of robotic reindeer, medics, and physiotherapists discover a answer for Santa? We hope all will get their Christmas presents on time! The FZI needs you a Merry Christmas and a Completely satisfied New 12 months!

Thanks, Arne!

This vacation season, Santa’s on a mission! Be a part of the festive enjoyable as our beloved Santa groups up along with his trusty robotic sidekick to unfold cheer and put a cease to any researchers who is likely to be as much as no good with harmless robots from the Robotic Techniques Lab. Let’s discover out if there are nonetheless some kind-hearted researchers on the market!

Completely satisfied Holidays from the PAL Robotics group. The start of 2024 marks the twentieth anniversary of our firm, and we’re excited for all of the issues to return.

Thanks, Rugile!

As we bid farewell to this yr and welcome the prospects of 2024, United Robtics Group is delighted to share our season’s greetings with you thru this particular video. On this time of festivity and hope, we lengthen our warmest needs for a joyful vacation season and a affluent New 12 months to everybody world wide.

Thanks, Nicolas!

Even units from the laboratories {of electrical} engineers, roboticists and pc scientists might be become musical devices. Of their Christmas video, researchers from CTU’s School of Electrical Engineering display this in an unconventional experiment by “tuning” their know-how to the Christmas tune within the English carol We Want You a Merry Christmas.

Thanks, Jiri!

Season’s greetings from euRobotics!

On this video, we offer you an unique behind-the-scenes take a look at how our KUKA Austria group works onerous to convey you the final word mulled cider expertise. From conception to implementation, the LBR iisy Cobot, which mixes the precision of a robotic with the eagerness of a human group, supplies assist. A course of that not solely delights the style buds, but in addition redefines the boundaries of robotics.

Santa Claus is on the brink of come to city, with a bit little bit of assist from his associates at Flexiv! He made a listing, checked it twice, and fingers crossed, you’ve been good!

We’ve created an AI robotic named CyberRunner whose job is to discover ways to play the favored and broadly accessible labyrinth marble recreation. The labyrinth is a recreation of bodily talent whose aim is to steer a marble from a given begin level to the tip level. In doing so, the participant should forestall the ball from falling into any of the holes which might be current on the labyrinth board. CyberRunner applies current advances in model-based reinforcement studying to the bodily world and exploits its skill to make knowledgeable selections about probably profitable behaviors by planning real-world selections and actions into the longer term. The educational on the real-world labyrinth is carried out in 6.06 hours, comprising 1.2 million time steps at a management price of 55 samples per second. The AI robotic outperforms the beforehand quickest recorded time, achieved by an especially expert human participant, by over 6 %.

In case you’re questioning (like I used to be), shortcutting throughout the maze to skip components of the observe is, in actual fact, dishonest. The system (like most people) did uncover shortcuts and needed to be explicitly directed to not take them.

Thanks, Markus!

Grain Weevil, one of many extra fascinating single-purpose robots I’ve ever seen, had a busy 2023.

The compilation showcases ultimate undertaking demos from the grasp course ‘Introduction to Delicate Robotics,’ supplied by SDU Delicate Robotics throughout Autumn 2023 on the College of Southern Denmark, Odense Campus. This yr’s undertaking theme centered on delicate locomotion. Every group was tasked with designing a delicate robotic able to navigating a path comprising flat and inclined surfaces, obstacles, and tough terrains.

In 2023, we have been honored to have quite a few purchasers place their belief in us, deploying our quadruped robotic in a wide range of settings. We take pleasure in our dedication to alleviate our purchasers’ challenges, a mission that has been on the coronary heart of DEEPRobotics because the starting. We’ve chosen just a few symbolic circumstances to share with you, and we hope you discover them as fascinating as we do. Get pleasure from!

Why do information facilities of the longer term have to be state-of-the-art, and why do we have to apply so many applied sciences to them? There are engineers tackling this very query with robotics, autonomous driving, and AI applied sciences. On this video, they clarify the explanation behind creating the robots and autonomous shuttles of the information middle GAK Sejong.

A captivating historical past of the KR FAMULUS, the world’s first industrial robotic with an electrical motor, which went into service in Augsburg half a century in the past! Beginning with the imaginative and prescient of making robots that may make work and life simpler for folks, the foundations have been laid for right now’s robotic revolution. Richard Schwarz, one of many KUKA pioneers, offers a first-hand account of how, pushed by ardour and the German engineering spirit, they developed the KR Famulus, shaping the know-how shift from cumbersome hydraulic robots to progressive, clear electrical motor robots.
