Drones survey African wildlife

Drones survey African wildlife

Jul 16, 2018 Worldwide
A new technique enables fast and accurate counting of gnu, oryx and other large mammals living in wildlife reserves. Drones are used to remotely photograph wilderness areas, and the images are then analysed using object recognition software and verified by humans.

Robots are coming to the seafood industry. Here's why

Robots are coming to the seafood industry. Here's why

Jul 13, 2018 United States
New England is known for being an excellent source of lobster and other seafood. But while fishing is done locally, much of the processing is outsourced to other countries. A lack of local manpower means scallops caught off the coast of Massachusetts might travel to China or India for processing before they appear on your plate at a restaurant in Boston.

Robotic cockroach can explore underwater environments

Jul 9, 2018 United Kingdom
In nature, cockroaches can survive underwater for up to 30 minutes. Now, a robotic cockroach can do even better. Harvard's Ambulatory Microrobot, known as HAMR, can walk on land, swim on the surface of water, and walk underwater for as long as necessary, opening up new environments for this little bot to explore.

Synthetic 'brainy skin' with sense of touch gets £1.5m funding

Synthetic 'brainy skin' with sense of touch gets £1.5m funding

Jul 5, 2018 United Kingdom
A robotic hand covered in 'brainy skin' that mimics the human sense of touch is being developed by scientists. University of Glasgow's Professor Ravinder Dahiya has plans to develop ultra-flexible, synthetic Brainy Skin that 'thinks for itself'. The super-flexible, hypersensitive skin may one day be used to make more responsive prosthetics for amputees, or to build robots with a sense of touch.
