Baubot comes out with two new robots to aid in construction projects

Despite artificial intelligence and robotics adapting to many other areas of life and the work force, construction has long remained dominated by humans in neon caps and vests. Now, the robotics company Baubot has developed a Printstones robot, which they hope to supplement human construction workers onsite.

A robot that teaches itself to walk using reinforcement learning

A team of researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, has built a two-legged robot with t he ability to teach itself to walk using reinforcement learning. The team has written a paper describing their work and has uploaded it to the arXiv preprint server.

Warm feelings about human-looking robots can turn icy when bots blunder

If a robot worker makes a mistake on the job, or annoys customers, businesses may not give it a pink slip and a cardboard box for its office belongings, but companies may be forced to shut down these expensive machines, according to a team of researchers.

Robots can be more aware of human co-workers, with system that provides context

Working safely is not only about processes, but context—understanding the work environment and circumstances, and being able to predict what other people will do next. A new system empowers robots with this level of context awareness, so they can work side-by-side with humans on assembly lines more efficiently and without unnecessary interruptions.

Digital twin can protect physical systems and train new users

It is more complicated than copy and paste, but digital twins could be the way of future manufacturing according to researchers from the University of Kentucky. They developed a virtual environment based on human-robot interactions that can mirror the physical set up of a welder and their project. Called a digital twin, the prototype has implications for evolving manufacturing systems and training novice welders. They published their work in the IEEE/CAA Journal of Automatica Sinica.

A laser equipped robotic guide dog to lead people who are visually impaired

A small team of researchers at the University of California, Berkeley has developed a robot dog to help in ways similar to real guide dogs. They have written a paper describing their robot guide dog and have uploaded it to the arXiv preprint server. They have also posted two videos demonstrating the capabilities of their robot on YouTube.
