Researchers have taken a closer look at how different animals respond to different terrain, and have found that soft steps and large feet allow animals to navigate very loose soil and sand.
Imagine machines that can learn more flexibly over time. Scientists have created a new way of doing machine learning that enables semantically related concepts to reinforce each other.
Imagine a robotic hand that is dexterous enough to manipulate tiny objects. That's exactly what researchers are working toward with the help of optical sensors.
Babies may have a hidden agenda behind their smiles.
Robots are helping conservationists with a big project. These machines have created the first true three-dimensional picture of submarine canyon habitats by mapping the deep sea in a conservation area.
What happens when you combine mechanical engineering with navigation? Then you get a new navigation device.
An adorable robot may be becoming a bit more useful on the International Space Station (ISS).
Marck Pollock, 39, just took his first steps in four years. He was paralyzed from the waist down after falling from a second-story window in 2010. Yet with the help of a robotic exoskeleton developed by scientists at UCLA, he's walking again.
Researchers may have created "hedgehog" robots that can hop, flip and tumble across other worlds.
A starfish-killing robot may be let loose on the Great Barrier Reef. Scientists have designed a robot to help tackle crown-of-thorns starfish that are posing a significant threat to coral.
Scientists have used an innovative 3D-printing technology to manufacture multipurpose fish-shaped microrobots that swim around and are powered by hydrogen peroxide.
