From my blog post...

"Well this is just amazing! The possibilities of what can be done with this type of robot are infinite…

Apparently the blob design is about a year old… they have improved designs now that are a bit different, going towards the ability to include sensors… some are palms sized. This blew my mind…."

Make Computers See with SimpleCV — The Open Source Framework for Vision21 September 2011


Annotations:



  • So after all that you are probably asking, “What is SimpleCV?” It is an open source computer vision framework that lowers the barriers to entry for people to learn, develop, and use it across the globe. Currently there are a few open source vision system libraries in existence, but the downside to these is you have to be quite the domain expert and knowledgeable with vision systems as well as know cryptic programming languages like C. Where SimpleCV is different, is it is “simple”. It has been designed with a web browser interface, which is familiar to Internet users everywhere. It will talk to your webcam (which most computers and smart phones have built in) automatically. It works cross platform (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc). It uses the programming language Python rather than C to greatly lower the learning curve of the software. It sacrifices some complexity for simplicity, which is needed for mass adoption of any type of new technology.

IBM Builds First Chips For Human-Inspired Robo-Brain, Does Not Appear To Be Terrified18 August 2011


Annotations:



  • Back in 2008, IBM announced their plan to try and create a computer that more accurately imitated the computing process of the human brain. Now, with a little help from 4 research Universities and DARPA, they’ve produced prototypes of the first few chips and are on the way to building their first, full-fledged robo-brain. If you’re going to run for the hills, now would be a good time to start.

     

    The project’s goal is to drastically alter the way in which computers compute by changing their structure to mimic the human brain instead of functioning as calculators. You see, most computers are von Neumann machines, meaning that the memory and processor are separated. The practical result of this is that as you reach the limit of how fast information can be passed from the memory to the processor via the bus, you reach the limit of computing power. In the human brain, the memory and the processors are in thousands of nodes that communicate slower, but simultaneously and radially. IBM’s prototypes are chips that, in quantity, can emulate those nodes.

robots.net - REEM - Humanoid robot teleoperation using Kinect12 August 2011


Annotations:



  • This video from <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.pal-robotics.com">PAL Robotics</a> shows the teleoperation system of its REEM robot. Equipped with a Kinect sensor as a motion capture device, a laptop captures the gestures and movements of a person and feeds the result to the robot as commands. This process is called motion retargeting and the teleoperation system was developed by Marcus Liebhardt as part of his master thesis project. PAL Robotics is a small Spanish company based in Barcelona, part of the PAL Group from Abu Dhabi. It develops humanoid robots since 2004 and its latest version of the REEM line of robots focuses towards commercial applications.

Pathogen research inspires microrobotics designs | KurzweilAI7 August 2011


Annotations:



  • Giardia, a pathogen that attacks the small intestines of humans and animals, is serving as the inspiration for developing robots that can fight disease and aid in military operations, researchers at the <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://www.utk.edu/">University of Tennessee</a>, Knoxville, have <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://www.utk.edu/tntoday/2011/08/02/ut-giardia-research-robotics-medicine-military/">found</a>.

    The researchers found that each of the four pairs of Giardia flagella conducts different functions. The discovery may lead to bio-inspired swimming microrobots for nanomedicine, such as site-specific controlled drug delivery and less invasive surgical procedures. For example, micro-robots could navigate through the body to break up kidney stones, deliver drugs to specific sites after injection and reduce the invasiveness of surgery.

Urbi Forge :: Urbi is an open-source software platform to control robots or complex systems in general. It includes a C++ component library called UObject that comes with a robot standard API to describe motors, sensors and algorithms. Next to UObject, you can use the urbiscript orchestration script language to glue the components together and describe high level behaviors, a bit like python or LUA, but with embedded parallel and event-driven semantics to make the job easier.
