Robots and humans: How to improve physical interaction

(Chinese Association of Automation) Popular entertainment often portrays robots as the perfect best friend, from Bender in the cartoon Futurama to the mighty Transformers. These close friendships don't exist off-screen yet, but humans and robots are getting to know each other better in real life. Show More Summary

Don't step on my heels: Scientists teach robots how to respect personal space

(Chinese Association of Automation) Robots have a lot to learn about humans, including how to respect their personal space. Scientists at the National University of San Juan, Argentina are giving mobile robots a crash course in avoiding collisions with humans. Show More Summary

Motion in action: Scientists develop method to track human movements more accurately

(Chinese Association of Automation) Scientists have developed a data-driven method to better detect and track human movements for use in technologies such as at-home personal training videos or monitoring at-risk elderly patients. The...Show More Summary

Rosie's robustness: Bringing the Jetsons to reality

(Chinese Association of Automation) Rosie has been the archetypal representative of helper robots since she wheeled onto televisions screens in the early 1960s. While Rosie vacuumed and washed dishes without a hint of incoordination, it turns out her real-world counterpart is far more likely to tip over and become a hindrance instead of a helper.

Emphasizing the auto in automobile: A unified approach for automated vehicles

(Chinese Association of Automation) The idea of driverless cars continues to make headlines across the world, including the recent revelation that researchers don car seat costumes to observe how the public interacts with cars that appear driverless. Show More Summary

The muscle of machinery: How to better control robotic movements

(Chinese Association of Automation) Researchers have improved the control of a key robotic component to better ensure the safety of humans. They published their results in IEEE/CAA Journal of Automatica Sinica (JAS), a joint publication of the IEEE and Chinese Association of Automation. The team, based at Nankai University, China, focused on series elastic actuators.

Robots on the move: How to better track movement

(Chinese Association of Automation) Pop culture promises a wide array of robots to aid humans, from the Jetsons' housekeeper, Rosie, to the adorable and helpful R2D2 and BB8 in the Star Wars universe. They may not yet be capable of washing dishes or smuggling holograms, but the robots of our time are getting better at moving. Show More Summary

Noise reduction: Scientists clear the chatter of buck converters

(Chinese Association of Automation) Buck converters, also known as step down converters, are chatty Cathys. The systems put out less power than they receive, and the tracking signals in the output can get stuck -- the result is a small but harmful frequency fluctuation. Show More Summary

Scientists propose method to improve microgrid stability and reliability

(Chinese Association of Automation) The power grid has a large reserve of energy to continue in an active state, while a microgrid quickly spends its reserve. The microgrid's renewable reserve, however, makes the microgrid system an attractive power prospect worth pursuing, and a collaborative team of researchers have proposed a way to better control the easily spent microgrids.

The power of society: Scientists propose new area of study in energy generation

(Chinese Association of Automation) The growth of humanity is limited by our tools. Each era of human development, from caves to the Industrial Revolution to sending Curiosity to Mars, is marked by technological evolution. A collaborative...Show More Summary

Scientists propose method to help keep new grid components operational and safe

(Chinese Association of Automation) The power grid's physical components are continuously improving, while the software underlying the safe function of the upgraded grid isn't keeping up. Engineers depend on the software to predict and correct for potential errors to set constraints on the rest of the system. Show More Summary

It's a breeze: How to harness the power of the wind

(Chinese Association of Automation) Scientists from the University of Rhode Island, Florida Atlantic University, USA, and Wuhan University, China, teamed up to find a way to optimize wind power for use, even when it's not blowing. To...Show More Summary

Survival of the fittest -- Biology's role in sustainable power generation

(Chinese Association of Automation) Scientists from the University of Geneva are using the rules of genetics to better understand how to incorporate wind and solar power into the current electrical grid to produce a renewable power system. The researchers published their study in IEEE/CAA Journal of Automatica Sinica.

Scientists develop divide and conquer approach for more stable power generation

(Chinese Association of Automation) Wind is powerful, but it doesn't always blow where and when it's needed. To make it more reliable and widely available, scientists have developed a two-prong approach to ensure wind-generated power doesn't die down as a renewable resource. Show More Summary

Scientists propose new method to correct common power problem in microgrids

(Chinese Association of Automation) Scientists from the Northeastern University, China, have developed a new method to diagnosis a serious electrical problem in microgrids. They published their work in IEEE/CAA Journal of Automatica Sinica. Show More Summary

Scientists propose better battery system for smart home use

(Chinese Association of Automation) A collaborative research team has proposed a novel programming solution to optimize power consumption in batteries. The scientists from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and University of Science and Technology Beijing published their results in IEEE/CAA Journal of Automatica Sinica. Show More Summary

The power of wind energy and how to use it

(Chinese Association of Automation) Wind offers an immense, never ending source of energy that can be successfully harnessed to power all of the things that currently draw energy from non-renewable resources. The wind doesn't always blow, though. Show More Summary

Calculating a new theory: How to teach an old field new tricks

(Chinese Association of Automation) Fractional calculus is concerned not only with how quickly and to what extent change develops but also in what order it advances. This is math, with memory. It can be used to recall the past, and also predict the future. Show More Summary

Motors matter: From DVD players to robotic surgeons

(Chinese Association of Automation) A team of researchers from the Polytechnic University of Bari, in Italy, are working to improve how industrial electric drives operate. They propose a new control scheme that will improve not only how the motor operates, but also how to improve how the motor interacts with other systems. Show More Summary

How to control the unknown: Novel method for robotic manipulation

(Chinese Association of Automation) The knowledge of system dynamics is completely unknown and system states are not available... therefore, it is desirable to design a novel control scheme that does not need the exact knowledge of system dynamics but only the input and output data measured during the operation of the system.
