Three Biggest Hurdles Faced by Roboshuttles

Three Biggest Hurdles Faced by Roboshuttles

Roboshuttles like those from EasyMile and Navya are a new and exciting mobility solution that have grown in interest during the past decade. However, in the past few years, IDTechEx has observed a slump in roboshuttle sales and a reduction in the number of active roboshuttle companies.

Tiny Swimming Robots Treat Deadly Pneumonia in Mice

Tiny Swimming Robots Treat Deadly Pneumonia in Mice

Nanoengineers have developed microscopic robots, called microrobots, that can swim around in the lungs, deliver medication and be used to clear up life-threatening cases of bacterial pneumonia. In mice, the microrobots safely eliminated pneumonia-causing bacteria in the lungs and resulted in 100% survival. By contrast, untreated mice all died within three days after infection.

3D Printing Drones Build and Repair Structures While Flying

3D Printing Drones Build and Repair Structures While Flying

3D printing is gaining momentum in the construction industry. Both on-site and in the factory, static and mobile robots print materials for use in construction projects, such as steel and concrete structures. This new approach to 3D printing uses drones, that use collective building methods inspired by natural builders like bees and wasps who work together to create large, intricate structures.

Soft Devices Powered by Algae Glow in the Dark When Stretched

Soft Devices Powered by Algae Glow in the Dark When Stretched

Researchers have developed soft devices containing algae that glow in the dark when experiencing mechanical stress, such as being squished, stretched, twisted or bent. The devices do not require any electronics to light up, making them an ideal choice for building soft robots that explore the deep sea and other dark environments.

Brains on board: Smart Microbots Walk Autonomously

Brains on board: Smart Microbots Walk Autonomously

A collaborative effort has installed electronic "brains" on solar-powered robots that are 100 to 250 micrometers in size - smaller than an ant's head - so that they can walk autonomously without being externally controlled.

Artificial Soft Surface Autonomously Mimics Shapes From Nature

Artificial Soft Surface Autonomously Mimics Shapes From Nature

Engineers have developed a scalable soft surface that can continuously reshape itself to mimic objects in nature. Relying on electromagnetic actuation, mechanical modeling and machine learning to form new configurations, the surface can even learn to adapt to hindrances such as broken elements, unexpected constraints or changing environments.

Evolving Automotive Lidar Technologies and Business Landscape

Evolving Automotive Lidar Technologies and Business Landscape

With the innovation of lidar beam steering technologies, continuous lidar cost reduction, as well as the progress of Advanced Driving Assistance System (ADAS) and Autonomous vehicles (AV), lidars are embracing their potential US$8.4 billion-dollar market by 2033, enabled by automotive applications, which can be further widely expanded to other areas such as robotics, industrial, smart city, and mapping.
