A new bio-inspired climbing robot designed to scale smooth vertical surfaces has been presented. The robot, called Stickybot, draws its inspiration from geckos and other climbing lizards and employs similar compliance and force control strategies to climb smooth vertical surfaces. M. Cutkosky, et al., “Whole body adhesion: hierarchical, directional and distributed control of adhesive forces for a climbing robot,” Proc. ICRA 2007, pp. 1268-1273.

A bipedal jumping and landing robot with artificial musculoskeletal system inspired on an animal has been presented. Experiments showed the abilities of the robot to realize vertical jumping. Reference: R. Niiyama, A. Nagakubo, Y. Kuniyoshi, “Mowgli: A bipedal jumping and landing robot with an artificial musculoskeletal system”, in Proc. of ICRA, pp. 2546-2551, 2007.

A humanoid two-arm system developed as a research platform for studying dexterous two-handed manipulation. Two arms and hands are combined with a three degrees-of-freedom movable torso and a visual system to form a complete humanoid upper body.

Recent Technical Developments in HRI

Computational models of core human socio-cognitive skills (such as perspective taking and shared attention) have been successfully demonstrated to improve the quality of human-robot teamwork and interaction

HRI frameworks have successfully been applied to traditional machine learning methods to enable humanoid and mobile robots to learn from natural human interactions via imitation, demonstration, and tutelage.

The HRI community has embarked on developing evaluation metrics that embrace multi-disciplinary perspectives such as human factors, psychology, robotics, etc. for diverse areas of HRI such as Urban Search and Rescue, Social Robotics, H-R teams for Space Exploration, and more.

Some examples of recent technical developments in robotics technologies applied to ITSfor quality of life, efficiency, mobility, safety, challenge.

  • The DARPA Grand Challenge

  • The first race ever that saw 5 autonomous vehicles reach the finish line after 130+ miles of desert, rough terrain, and extreme conditions.

  • The first time that unmanned vehicles succeed in this extremely complex task.

Cybercars: a new approach for sustainable mobility

Emerging as an alternative to the private passenger car, cybercars try to offer the same flexibility and much less nuisances based on fully automated electrical vehicles with on-demand and door-to-door capability. Fleets of such vehicles are being deployed in several worldwide cities and are already operational in specific environments such as shuttle services for passenger transportation.

Major breakthrough in automobile

Combination of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS).

Field of interest statement l.jpg
Field of Interest Statement Engineering

The Society strives to advance innovation, education, and fundamental and applied research in Robotics and Automation. Robotics focuses on systems incorporating sensors and actuators that operate autonomously or semi-autonomously in cooperation with humans. Robotics research emphasizes intelligence and adaptability to cope with unstructured environments. Automation research emphasizes efficiency, productivity, quality, and reliability, focusing on systems that operate autonomously, often in structured environments over extended periods, and on the explicit structuring of such environments.
