The humanoid robot Asimo from Honda now works independently and operates independently with its environment.
The new technology developed by Honda puts the robot now in the situation in an environment with other people and Asimo robots to interact. Asimo has learned and is now in a position to be harmonious. The robot can now dodge oncoming people. It covers the persons eyes with his camera, calculates its direction of motion and speed, calculated their expected movements and then selects independently the fairest way to the person not to hinder. Is not enough space occurs Asimo back and lets the people the priority. Even in the everyday work of a human being, the small robots now perform tasks such as wearing a trays and pushing a wagon. Another feature is that when Asimo below a certain battery now stand independently its battery charges. The comprehensive system allows that several Asimo robot work together for editing.

Research Institute for Cognitive and robotics at the University of Bielefeld opened
intelligent robots are in highly developed industrial nations play an increasingly important role – especially with a view to humans tailored assistance functions can be realized. In developing the robot is therefore especially the social skills and communication with the people in the foreground. Given these enormous challenges, the University of Bielefeld, supported by the North Rhine-Westphalia Ministry of Innovation, Science, Research and Technology, the Research Institute for Cognitive and robotics (CoR-Lab) “as a central scientific institution. The goal is to establish in the region Ostwestfalen-lip a research center in an important field of high technology to establish, to help achieve medium-sized economy and the University of Bielefeld with its research priority “intelligent systems”.

Humanoid robots are among researchers a much-debated topic – deployments in enterprises and in everyday experts appear initially but unrealistic: So far, most such robots for the stage.
Augsburg. Matthias Hackel, managing director of Mabotic in Leverkusen has a new friend: SAM. Unlike his predecessor H10 can SAM with eyes rolling, his head move and gesticulate. The humanoid robot, the founder of a company to control and automation technology together with the University of Bielefeld has developed can be built FireWire cameras even target objects. The development of robot prototypes but rather was paid hobby as a profession, says Hackel, whose main business is the digitization of components. A real market for robots with human features and capabilities exist in Germany yet. But medium-sized companies monitor research at the human machines. Because in the future could the results of robotics research and industrial robots or everyday intelligent systems. “For many entrepreneurs, the robot technology as an important future topic perceived,” said Jochen Steil, managing director of the Research Institute for Cognitive and robotics at the University of Bielefeld (CoR-Lab).

The latest robot Hitachi, EMIEW2 is intelligent enough to differentiate between three human voices simultaneously through 14 microphones embedded in his head that provide voice recognition capabilities. To this end, the voice recognition is a separate audio source and recognition profile noise. The first focuses on the direction of the person speaking, allowing the EMIEW2 to know who he speaks with a distance of 2 meters, ignoring all other noises. The EMIEW2 is 80cm high and it is suitable for the job of receptionist:). It moves through a wheel after each leg, and he can climb stairs.
A Japanese company offers a humanoid robot for training future dentists.
Getting treatment for a bunt is never a pleasant thing for anyone and the dentist must be taken into account in improving its technical intervention to relieve his patients, including those for which the rumble of the famous strawberry gives sweats cold.
In order to train future dentists to treat properly cavities while guaranteeing a minimum of pain for patients, the Japanese company Kokoro created a robot named Simroid. Presented on Wednesday in Tokyo, Japan, it is a humanoid robot in the form of a woman measuring 1.60 metres, with long hair and was wearing a pink sweater and pants white. If it badly during the intervention, Simroid can verbally express his pain or froncant eyebrows like a real patient. A sensor was also placed on the chest of the robot, to detect any gesture displaced students. Continue reading
