NASA’s Astrobee robot has undergone first hardware tests in space

NASA's new free-flying robotic system, Astrobee, which is designed to help astronauts reduce the time they spend on routine duties, has undergone its first...
A new “particle simulator” developed by MIT researchers improves robots’ abilities to mold materials into simulated target shapes and interact with solid objects and liquids. This could give robots a refined touch for industrial applications or for personal robotics— such as shaping clay or rolling sticky sushi rice. Courtesy of the researchers

Giving robots a better feel for object manipulation

MIT scientists have developed a new learning system that can potentially improve robots’ abilities to mold materials into target shapes and make predictions about...
The “pick-and-place” system consists of a standard industrial robotic arm that the researchers outfitted with a custom gripper and suction cup. They developed an “object-agnostic” grasping algorithm that enables the robot to assess a bin of random objects and determine the best way to grip or suction onto an item amid the clutter, without having to know anything about the object before picking it up.

Robotic picker grasps and packs

Unloading basic needs is a clear but dreary undertaking: You venture into a sack, look about for a thing, and haul it out. A...
