Arm-A-Dine Robot: Feeding Robotic Arm

Arm-A-Dine Robot a robot arm worn in the middle of the chest that picks food up off the table and conveys it to you or your dining partner’s mouth. The intention isn’t to stuff you till you explode, though: Arm-A-Dine is actually a prototype designed to augment the social experience of eating. In a research paper from the Exertion Games Lab at RMIT University in Australia and ...

AirBurr Robot: Smart Flying Robot

AirBurr Robot takes inspiration from the way insects process information and therefor can recover from collisions and even exploit them. The robot is designed to be robust to crashes and can take-off again without human intervention. Airburr navigates in a reactive way, can bump into obstacles, and doesn't need heavy modeling in order to fly autonomously.

MultiChoiceGripper Robot: Smart Robotic Arm

MultiChoiceGripper Robot is a gripper that adjusts to different tasks. The pneumatic gripper is inspired by the human hand and is modelled on the thumb, thanks to which humans are also able to grip a wide variety of shapes quickly and easily. The gripper unites a combination of different grip types. Its fingers can therefore be switched over so that they can either grip in a parallel or centric manner – without requiring any conversion.

ROBIOSS Robot: Smart Hand Robot

ROBIOSS Robot is a fully actuated bio-inspired four-degree-of-freedom (DOF) finger driven by four actuators. It has been developed with the goal to replicate fine manipulation with fingertips with a high degree of interaction with the environment. The robotic hand has fingers whose design is based on a human anatomical finger model.

Dexter Hand Robot: Smart Hand Robot

Dexter Hand Robot which uses sensors and a camera to "feel" its environment and act intelligently. The prosthetic is an intuitive, and intelligent alternative to existing prosthetic hands. Dexter can adjust its position, orientation, and grip based on visual and force feedback to detect objects, determine appropriate grasps, and maintain object orientation without the need for extensive user input.

Sandia Hand Robot: Smart Hand Robot

Sandia Hand Robot consists of a hand frame that supports a set of identical finger modules that magnetically attach and detach from the hand frame. The finger modules consist of several sensor systems that enable the hand to perform complex manipulation tasks and is supported by several imaging systems to increase function and performance.

X-Hand Robot: Smart Hand Robot

X-Hand Robot describes a general design theory of the anthropomorphic hand. The goal of the project is replicating the natural grasping functions of the human hand so it becomes feasible using the designed hand with a few actuators via biosignal based control. The designed prosthetic hand not only has the ability to implement the human grasping activities of daily living but also replicates the natural grasping behaviors of the human hand.

AirPenguin Robot: Smart Flying Robot

AirPenguin Robot which fly as a group, accurately simulate the movements of their natural counterparts: thanks to their 3-D structure with Fin Ray Effect at the front and back, they glide through the water just like real penguins. Their passively twisting flippers enable the penguins to fly both forwards and backwards. The buoyancy of the ultra-light AirPenguins is assured by way of a helium-filled ballonet.

Spacer Robot: Electric Aircraft Tugs

Spacer Robot is a remote control operated airplane pushback tug that will reduce workload at airports and increase the pushback precision by providing the controller a wide angled view and the ability to confirm the aircraft's exact position at any time. In addition, the required training time will be shorter and more efficient in comparison to the conventional tug driver training.
