Video Friday: Robotic Canine Can’t Fall

Video Friday is your weekly choice of superior robotics movies, collected by your mates at IEEE Spectrum robotics. We additionally put up a weekly calendar of upcoming robotics occasions for the subsequent few months. Please ship us your occasions for inclusion.

RoboCup German Open: 17–21 April 2024, KASSEL, GERMANY
AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2024: 22–25 April 2024, SAN DIEGO
Eurobot Open 2024: 8–11 Could 2024, LA ROCHE-SUR-YON, FRANCE
ICRA 2024: 13–17 Could 2024, YOKOHAMA, JAPAN
RoboCup 2024: 17–22 July 2024, EINDHOVEN, NETHERLANDS
Cybathlon 2024: 25–27 October 2024, ZURICH

Take pleasure in at the moment’s movies!

I feel suggesting that robots can’t fall is way much less helpful than as an alternative suggesting that robots can fall and get rapidly and simply get again up once more.

Sanctuary AI says that this video reveals Phoenix working at “human-equivalent pace,” however they don’t specify which human or beneath which situations. Although it’s sooner than I might be, that’s for certain.

“Suzume” is an animated movie by Makoto Shinkai, through which one of many characters will get become a three-legged chair:

Shintaro Inoue from JSK Lab on the College of Tokyo has managed to construct a robotic model of that very same chair, which is fairly spectacular:

Thanks, Shintaro!

Humanoid robotic EVE coaching for dwelling help like placing groceries into the kitchen cupboards.

That is the RAM—robotic autonomous mower. It may be dropped wherever on the planet and can get up with a mission to make tall grass round it shorter. Here’s a fast clip of it engaged on the Presidio in SF.

[ Electric Sheep ]

This 12 months, our robots braved a Finnish winter for the primary time. Because the snow clears and the times get longer, we’re wanting again on how our robots made hundreds of deliveries to S Group prospects in the course of the colder months.

[ Starship ]

Agility Robotics is doing its greatest to reply the (quite common) query of “Okay, however what can humanoid robots truly do?”

[ Agility Robotics ]

Digit is nice and every thing, however Cassie will at all times be one in all my favourite robots.

[ CoRIS ]

Adopting omnidirectional Discipline of View (FoV) cameras in aerial robots vastly improves notion potential, considerably advancing aerial robotics’s capabilities in inspection, reconstruction, and rescue duties. We suggest OmniNxt, a totally open-source aerial robotics platform with omnidirectional notion.

The MAkEable framework enhances cellular manipulation in settings designed round people by streamlining the method of sharing realized expertise and experiences amongst totally different robots and contexts. Sensible checks affirm its effectivity in a variety of situations, involving totally different robots, in duties comparable to object greedy, coordinated use of each fingers in duties, and the change of expertise amongst humanoid robots.

[ Paper ]

We carried out trials of Ringbot outside on a 400 meter observe. With an influence supply of 2300 milliamp-hours and 11.1 Volts, Ringbot managed to cowl roughly 3 kilometers in 37 minutes. We commanded its goal pace and path utilizing a distant joystick controller (Steam Deck), and Ringbot skilled 5 falls throughout this trial.

There’s a notable lack of consistency about the place precisely Boston Dynamics desires you to suppose Spot’s eyes are.

[ Boston Dynamics ]

As with each single cooking video, there’s plenty of background prep that’s required for this robotic to prepare dinner a complete meal, however I might totally demolish these fries.

[ Dino Robotics ]

Right here’s every thing it’s essential to learn about Wing supply drones, besides for the way a lot human time they really require and the true value of constructing deliveries by drone, as a result of these issues aren’t enjoyable to speak about.

This CMU Teruko Yata Memorial Lecture is by Agility Robotics’ Jonathan Hurst, on “Human-Centric Robots and How Studying Allows Generality.”

People have dreamt of robotic helpers endlessly. What’s new is that this dream is turning into actual. New developments in AI, constructing on foundations of {hardware} and passive dynamics, allow vastly improved generality. Robots can step out of extremely structured environments and grow to be extra human-centric: working in human areas, interacting with folks, and performing some primary human workflows. By connecting a Massive Language Mannequin, Digit can convert pure language high-level requests into complicated robotic directions, composing the library of expertise collectively, utilizing human context to realize actual work within the human world. All of that is new—and it’s by no means going again: AI will drive a fast-following robotic revolution that’s going to alter the best way we reside.
