MIT's mini-Cheetah robot can now do backflips

MIT has returned with the latest version of his Cheetah Quadrupedal Mini Cheetah robot and has a new trick up his sleeve: he can do backflips. Backflipping robots are nothing new – the much larger Atlas robots from Boston Dynamics came into use in November 2017, but the Mini Cheetah is the first four-legged robot to accomplish this, which is …

The first running robot to move without GPS – ScienceDaily

Desert ants are extraordinary loners. Researchers drew inspiration from these ants when they developed AntBot, the first walk-in robot that could accidentally explore its surroundings and automatically go home without GPS or mapping. This work opens new strategies for navigation in autonomous vehicles and in robotics. The human eye is insensitive to polarized light and ultraviolet radiation, but this is …

Scientists gave this robot arm a "self-image" and watched as he learned

The researchers took a standard robotic arm and programmed it with a "self-image". (Source: Kwiatkowski and Lipson, Sci. Robot. 4, eaau9354) (2019)) In The Matrix Morpheus Neo states that her digital appearance is based on her "residual self-image". That is, the characters look like they envision their own mental models of themselves. In the real world, scientists have been trying …

The creator of Roomba made an autonomous lawnmower robot

iRobot, the manufacturer of the Roomba vacuum, today unveiled its first autonomous lawn mower, the Terra. While most autonomous lawn mowers are required by employees to lay cables to set their limits, the Terra only requires that wireless beacons be placed around the perimeter of a lawn. This is a simpler setup. Users also need to drive the lawnmower on …
