Next generation of nuclear robots will go where none have gone before

Next generation of nuclear robots will go where none have gone before

Mar 1, 2017 United Kingdom
The cost of cleaning up the UK's existing nuclear facilities has been estimated to be between £95 billion and £219 billion over the next 120 years or so. The harsh conditions within these facilities means that human access is highly restricted and much of the work will need to be completed by robots.

More than 4500 km2 in Cambodia are contaminated with explosive remnants of war, which has significantly affected Cambodia in a number of ways.
Agricultural robot may be game changer for crop growers, breeders

Agricultural robot may be game changer for crop growers, breeders

Feb 24, 2017 United States
A semiautonomous robot may soon be roaming agricultural fields gathering and transmitting real-time data about the growth and development of crops, information that crop breeders -- and eventually farmers -- can use to identify the genetic traits in plants likely to produce the greatest yields.
Six-legged robots faster than nature-inspired gait

Six-legged robots faster than nature-inspired gait

Feb 23, 2017 Switzerland
Researchers have discovered a faster and more efficient gait, never observed in nature, for six-legged robots walking on flat ground. Bio-inspired gaits - less efficient for robots - are used by real insects since they have adhesive pads to walk in three dimensions.

Robots and AI: MEPs call for EU-wide liability rules

Robots and AI: MEPs call for EU-wide liability rules

Feb 20, 2017 1 Europe
EU-wide rules are needed for the fast-evolving field of robotics, e.g. to enforce ethical standards or establish liability for accidents involving driverless cars, say MEPs in a resolution voted on Thursday.
Bridging simulator-to-reality gap with aerial informatics and robotics

Bridging simulator-to-reality gap with aerial informatics and robotics

Feb 17, 2017 United States
Machine learning is becoming an increasingly important artificial intelligence approach to building autonomous and robotic systems. One of the key challenges with machine learning is the need for many samples — the amount of data needed to learn useful behaviors is prohibitively high.
