Robotics engineers are buzzing about a machine with potentially transformative implications for agriculture, surveillance, and mapping: the "robobee." Researchers at Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences plan to have the mechanized critters flapping though the air autonomously within the next three years, according to NPR. And if coaxing the machines into flight isn't enough of a challenge, the real innovation lies in getting the machines to mimic the collaborative behavior of a colony.
A research team working at Harvard University's Biorobotics Laboratory, a part of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, has developed a new and less expensive tactile sensor for robots. This sensor, which is in the cost ra... Read Post
