Emma Robot: Smart Massage Robot

Emma started work on 'her' first patients today at the NovaHealth Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) clinic, working alongside human colleagues - a physician and a massage therapist. Emma 3.0 - the first to go in public service - is a third more compact than the first prototype revealed last year. According to researchers at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore who designed Emma, she provides a massage that is described by patients as almost indistinguishable from a professional masseuse.

David Robot: An Anthropomorphic Robot

David is a scientific platform to experimentally investigate control methods for variable stiffness robots. The focus of the controller design includes active vibration damping, stiffness control, optimal, and cyclic motion control. Analysis and control of robotic arms and hands are treated. The high dynamics and the robustness of the platform allow to explore new strategies for the planning and the execution. The possibility to safely collide with the environment offers the possibility to develop tactile mapping algorithm.

Flippy Robot: Smart Making Hamburger Robot

Flippy is more of an automaton than a human replacement. It’s essentially an industrial robot arm with a spatula attached that uses machine vision to locate burgers on the grill, time how long they’ve been cooking, and flip them when needed. Human workers still have to do everything else — including placing cheese on the burger, assembling the food, and taking a customer’s order. Flippy is primarily earning its keep as a visitor attraction, just like those Chinese restaurants that use robot waiters.
