Flying Dragon Robot Transforms Itself to Squeeze Through Gaps. Dragon can change its shape to move through complex environments and even manipulate objects. There’s been a lot of recent focus on applications for aerial robots, and one of the areas with the most potential is indoors. The thing about indoors is that by definition you have to go through doors to get there, and once you’re inside, there are all kinds of things that are horribly dangerous to aerial robots, like more doors, walls, windows, people, furniture, hanging plants, lampshades, and other aerial robots, inevitably followed by still more doors. One solution is to make your robots super small, so that they can fit through small openings without running into something fragile and expensive, but then you’re stuck with small robots that can’t do a whole heck of a lot. Another solution is to put your robots in protective cages, but then you’re stuck with robots that can’t as easily interact with their environment, even if they want to. Ideally, you’d want a robot that doesn’t need that level of protection, that’s somehow large and powerful but also small and nimble at the same time. At JSK Lab at the University of Tokyo, roboticists have developed a robot called DRAGON, which (obviously) stands for for “Dual-rotor embedded multilink Robot with the Ability of multi-degree-of-freedom aerial transformation.” It’s a modular flying robot powered by ducted fans that can transform literally on the fly, from a square to a snake to anything in between, allowing it to stretch out to pass through small holes and then make whatever other shape you want once it’s on the other side. DRAGON is made of a series of linked modules, each of which consists of a pair of ducted fan thrusters that can be actuated in roll and pitch to vector thrust in just about any direction you need. The modules are connected to one another with a powered hinged joint, and the whole robot is driven by an Intel Euclid and powered by a battery pack (providing 3 minutes of flight time, which is honestly more than I would have thought), mounted along the robot’s spine. This particular prototype is made up of four modules, allowing it to behave sort of like a quad rotor, even though I suppose technically it’s an octorotor.

Nvidia is training robots to learn new skills by observing humans. Initial experiments with the process have seen a Baxter robot learn to pick up and move colored boxes and a toy car in a lab environment. The researchers hope the development of the new deep-learning based system will go some way to train robots to work alongside humans in both manufacturing and home settings. “In the manufacturing environment, robots are really good at repeatedly executing the same trajectory over and over again, but they don’t adapt to changes in the environment, and they don’t learn their tasks, ” Nvidia principal research scientist Stan Birchfield told VentureBeat. “So to repurpose a robot to execute a new task, you have to bring in an expert to reprogram the robot at a fairly low level, and it’s an expensive operation. What we’re interested in doing is making it easier for a non-expert user to teach a robot a new task by simply showing it what to do.” The researchers trained a sequence of neural networks to perform duties associated with perception, program generation, and program execution. The result was that the robot was able to learn a new task from a single demonstration in the real world. Once the robot witnesses the task, it generates a human-readable description of the states required to complete the task. A human can then correct the steps if necessary before execution on the real robot. “There’s sort of a paradigm shift happening in the robotics community now, ” Birchfield said. “We’re at the point now where we can use GPUs to generate essentially a limitless amount of pre-labeled data essentially for free to develop and test algorithms. And this is potentially going to allow us to develop these robotics systems that need to learn how to interact with the world around them in ways that scale better and are safer.” In a video released by the researchers, human operator shows a pair of stacks of cubes to the robot. The system then understands an appropriate program and correctly places the cubes in the correct order. Information gathered by - Robotics for u.

Controlling robots with brainwaves and hand gestures Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory system enable people to correct robot mistakes on multiple-choice tasks. Getting robots to do things isn’t easy, usually, scientists have to either explicitly program them or get them to understand how humans communicate via language. But what if we could control robots more intuitively, using just hand gestures and brainwaves? A new system spearheaded by researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) aims to do exactly that, allowing users to instantly correct robot mistakes with nothing more than brain signals and the flick of a finger. Building off the team’s past work focused on simple binary-choice activities, the new work expands the scope to multiple-choice tasks, opening up new possibilities for how human workers could manage teams of robots. By monitoring brain activity, the system can detect in real-time if a person notices an error as a robot does a task. Using an interface that measures muscle activity, the person can then make hand gestures to scroll through and select the correct option for the robot to execute.

By 2023, India wants an advanced robotic soldier protecting its borders. This next-generation soldier should be intelligent enough to automatically recognize threats and take action. It should also be sophisticated enough to distinguish between threats and non-threats. If India achieves its objective, that will have a huge impact on two fronts at least. First, the robotic soldier would give India the ability to redefine geopolitics, regionally and globally. India could join a very small yet special club of countries (such as Russia and Israel) that are using robots to defend their borders. India may use its robotic soldier as a strategic weapon, like a nuclear bomb, to command attention and respect. From a nation that is currently a secondary partner to the U.S., Russia, or China, a robotic soldier would give India the capability to have a strategic agenda of its own. India will not just be a coalition partner. It will create its own coalition. The next U.N. peacekeeping mission might involve robotic soldiers imported from India or under the command of an Indian general experienced in commanding a robotic army. Second, building an army of robotic soldiers would affect the Indian economy. During the next financial year (2016-’17), India plans to spend nearly $40 billion on defense. This expenditure has quadrupled in the past 15 years. The expenditure was $11.8 billion in 2001. By 2022, India may be spending $620 billion on defense. It’s no wonder then that the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) found India topping the list of nations importing weapons. According to SIPRI, India bought 14% of all weapons sold globally between 2011 and 2015. The defense budget not only accounts for 17.2 percent of the total planned government expenditure for the next fiscal year, but there is also an off-books number — pensions of defense personnel — that is rising rapidly. It will be around $10 billion in the next financial year. When one in five rupees is going toward defense operations, the economy takes a hit. While the robotic soldiers will not fix the problem by themselves or dramatically change the budget, they are likely to offer relief. Every rupee saved from defense will go toward development. What strategy will India adopt? Will it increase its imports of weapons and acquire the robotic soldiers from overseas, or will India create its robotic soldiers under the “Make in India” program? Or, just as Russia surprised the world with its intervention in the Syrian civil war, India could also enter and exit hot zones or create them in pursuit of its national interests. The robotic soldier would change the border dynamics with China, Bangladesh, and Pakistan, for sure.

This Terrifying Robot Wolf is protecting the crops of Japanese Farmers For the last eight months, farms near Kisarazu City in Japan have been home to a horrifying robot wolf. But don’t worry; it wasn’t created to terrorize local residents (although, from the looks of the thing, it probably did). Its official name is “Super Monster Wolf, ” and engineers designed it to stop animals from eating farmers’ crops. In truth, the story of the robot wolf is more than a little sad. As Motherboard reports, wolves went extinct in Japan in the early 1800s. A state-sponsored eradication campaign. Now, parts of Japan are overrun with deer and wild boar. They love to feast on farmers’ rice and chestnut crops. Obviously, farmers do not love this. Fast forward 200 years and humans create a robotic wolf to replace the species they killed off. But there is some good here. The first official trial of the robot wolf just ended and surprised it was a resounding success. In fact, it was such a success that the wolf is entering mass production next month.
