Introducing SpotMini



SpotMini is a new smaller version of the Spot robot, weighing 55 lbs dripping wet (65 lbs if you include its arm.) SpotMini is all-electric (no hydraulics) and runs for about 90 minutes on a charge, depending on what it is doing. SpotMini is one of the quietest robots we have ever built. It has a variety of sensors, including depth cameras, a solid state gyro (IMU) and proprioception sensors in the limbs. These sensors help with navigation and mobile manipulation. SpotMini performs some tasks autonomously, but often uses a human for high-level guidance. For more information about SpotMini visit our website at www.BostonDynamics.com

ALIZ-E - Integrated System


The ALIZ-E project builds social robots to support children with diabetes. The robots are evaluated across hospitals in Europe as a support tool for young children, and help children understand their conditions and educates children about diabetes management. The robot can engage in different activities with the child, switching between a quiz, a dance game and educational games. For this it relies on an "integrated system", a complex whole of software, hardware and the robot itself, to offer a rich choice of activities.

Soft Robotic Grippers for Deep-Sea Exploration



In this video, two types of soft robotic grippers are shown successfully collecting coral samples at the bottom of the Red Sea. The first gripper features opposing pairs of bending actuators, while the second gripper - inspired by the coiling action of a boa constrictor - can access tight spaces and clutch small and irregular shaped objects. The grippers were developed by Wyss Core Faculty member Robert Wood and Wyss Mechanical Engineer Kevin Galloway in collaboration with researchers from Baruch College, CUNY, and University of Rhode Island.

NAVAIR Flight Ready: Autonomy



NAWCWD's groundbreaking advances in autonomy are reinventing how our engineers are designing systems at China Lake, California. From self-correcting quadcopters to collision-avoiding Turtlebots, autonomy is evolving systems to a higher level of sophistication. These designs allow them to sense, understand, decide and act in support of selected missions.

A 3-D Printed Functionally Graded Soft Robot



SEAS researchers have built one of the first 3-D printed, soft robots that moves autonomously. The design offers a new solution to an engineering challenge that has plagued soft robotics for years: the integration of rigid and soft materials. This design combines the autonomy and speed of a rigid robot with the adaptability and resiliency of a soft robot and, because of 3-D printing, is relatively cheap and fast.

Popup Challenge: Help Revolutionize Popup Robotics



Join the Wyss Institute Popup Challenge, a design contest based around the laminate design techniques outlined at popupcad.org. We hope to grow the community of people who can design, build, and operate laminate devices and micromechanisms. If you are a student considering using popups for a class project, a researcher who has an application for a new robot, or simply want to learn about the process, then consider submitting your design to the contest! For more information please visit www.popupcad.org

新しいバランス制御方式を試してみました。生物からヒントを得て、あまり計算を必要と-しない非常にシンプルな方法で動かしています。でも小型ロボットの場合転倒速度が速い-ので人間よりも約2.1倍高速に反応しなければなりません。
