ACT Hand Robot: Smart Hand Robot

ACT Hand Robot incorporates neuromusculoskeletal aspects of the anatomy that are functionally crucial in order to use control signals that resemble the neural commands. These aspects include the tendon insertion points, general bone shapes, the extensor mechanisms, muscle contraction behavior, joint axes locations, joint range of motion, and the general size and weight of the human hand.

InSight Robot: Smart Mars Lander

InSight Robot is a smart mars lander and has sent signals to Earth indicating that its solar panels are open and collecting sunlight on the Martian surface. NASA's Mars Odyssey orbiter relayed the signals, which were received on Earth at about 5:30 p.m. PST (8:30 p.m. EST). Solar array deployment ensures the spacecraft can recharge its batteries each day. Odyssey also relayed a pair of images showing InSight's landing site.

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.
