Robot circulatory system powers possibilities

Robot circulatory system powers possibilities

Untethered robots suffer from a stamina problem. A possible solution: a circulating liquid - "robot blood" - to store energy and power its applications for sophisticated, long-duration tasks.

Deep submersible dives shed light on rarely explored coral reefs

Deep submersible dives shed light on rarely explored coral reefs

Just beyond where conventional scuba divers can go is an area of the ocean that still is largely unexplored. In waters this deep — about 100 to at least 500 feet below the surface — little to no light breaks through.

Teaching AI to connect senses like vision and touch

Teaching AI to connect senses like vision and touch

While our sense of touch gives us a channel to feel the physical world, our eyes help us immediately understand the full picture of these tactile signals. Robots that have been programmed to see or feel can't use these signals quite as interchangeably.

Holes in Antarctic sea ice explained by years of robotic data

Holes in Antarctic sea ice explained by years of robotic data

A new study combines satellite images of the sea ice cover, robotic drifters and even seals outfitted with sensors to better understand the phenomenon. The research explores why this hole appears in only some years, and what role it could play in the larger ocean circulation.
