BirdBot is energy-efficient thanks to nature as a model

A team of scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and the University of California, Irvine constructed a robot leg that, like its natural model, is very energy efficient. BirdBot benefits from a foot-leg coupling through a network of muscles and tendons that extends across multiple joints. In this way, BirdBot needs fewer motors than previous legged robots and could, theoretically, scale to large size.

Boosting innovations and maximising societal impact. Role of Digital Innovation Hubs in Inspection & Maintenance robotics

This workshop analysed the role and contribution of Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) to the widespread adoption of robotics in society. How can they enhance the implementation of robotics by SMEs and startups into their daily operations? How can they help to close the knowledge gap of non-technological issues of robotics in Inspection & Maintenance (I&M)?

Interview with Axel Krieger and Justin Opfermann: autonomous robotic laparoscopic surgery for intestinal anastomosis

Anastomosis is an essential step to the reconstructive phase of surgery and is performed over a million times each year in the United States alone. Surgical outcomes for patients are highly dependent on the surgeon’s skill. Their paper describes a surgical robot and workflow to perform autonomous anastomosis of the small bowel.
