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.

IHR Robot: Smart Home Robot

IHR Robot is a smart home robot that comes to the rescue. Designed by Wanheng Chen for Sichuan Konka Smart Technology, the conceptual robot works by monitoring your home at all times and making decisions for you. This could include activating your autonomous vacuum if the floors are dirty, turning the alarm system on and locking the doors if you aren't home and much more.

MSRR Robot: Smart Modular Robot

MSRR Robot is the adaption to complex environments and changeable tasks. A critical difficulty is that the operator should regulate a large number of control parameters of modules. In this paper, a novel locomotion control model based on chaotic Central Pattern Generator (CPG) is proposed. The chaotic CPG could produce various rhythm signals or chaotic signal only by changing one parameter.

AquaSimian Robot: Smart Industrial Robot

AquaSimian Robot includes capabilities to detect and autonomously respond to any leaks or motor faults by disconnecting motor power when the system is in an off-nominal state and notifying the operator through LED lighting on the Light Lids that seal the actuator assembly housings. A custom 3-function robotic gripper mounted to the force torque sensor allows dexterous yet robust interaction with underwater task panels.

Air Octor Robot: Smart Soft Robot

Air Octor Robot uses pneumatically-pressurized chambers to provide the structural support necessary for bending. The robot's manipulator uses a combination of motors and pneumatic pressure regulators for actuation. DC motors, spools, and cables are combined to form a tendon-cable servo system which is used to control the bending of the manipulator sections.

LittleApe Robot: Smart Four Legged Robot

LittleApe Robot The small and extreme lightweight robot is capable of walking on two and four legs as well as of changing from a four-legged posture to a two-legged posture. ​LittleApe features the proportions corresponding to its biological archetype. The most promising species for the robot's requirements like climbing and walking on four and two legs are the chimpanzee and its close relative, the bonobo.
