Video Friday is your weekly number of superior robotics movies, collected by your mates at IEEE Spectrum robotics. We’ll even be posting a weekly calendar of upcoming robotics occasions for the following few months; this is what we’ve up to now (ship us your occasions!):
ICRA 2022: 23–27 Might 2022, Philadelphia
ERF 2022: 28–30 June 2022, Rotterdam, Germany
CLAWAR 2022: 12–14 September 2022, Açores, Portugal
Tell us you probably have recommendations for subsequent week, and luxuriate in immediately’s movies.
Agility had a busy 2021. This can be a lengthy video, however there’s new stuff in it (or, new to me, anyway), together with spectacular manipulation expertise, sturdy perceptive locomotion, leaping, and a few enjoyable constumes.

Houston Mechatronics is now Nauticus Robotics, and so they have a flowery new video to show it.

Club_KUKA is an unprecedented KUKA present cell that mixes leisure and robotics with technical precision and inventive worth. All in all, the present cell is residence to a cool group known as the Kjays. A KR3 AGILUS on the drums, loops its beats and units the beat. The KR CYBERTECH nano is our nimble DJ with rhythm in his blood. As well as, a KR AGILUS performs as a lightweight artist and enchants with tender and expansive actions. As well as there may be an LBR iiwa, which – mounted on the ceiling – retains a watch on the bizarre robotic occasion.
And if that was an excessive amount of so that you can deal with (?), this is “chill mode:”

A mini documentary factor on ANYbotics from Kaspersky, the spotlight of which might be a younger woman assembly ANYmal on the road and asking the vital questions, like whether or not it is available in another colours.

When you’re on the lookout for a robotic that may perform upkeep duties, our teleoperation programs may give you simply that. Consider it as distant arms, in a position to carry out duties, with out you having to be there on-location. You’re nonetheless in full management, because the robotic arms will replicate your hand actions. You possibly can management the robotic from wherever you want, even from residence, which is a a lot safer and environmentally-friendly method.

If I had fingers like this, I would be fairly superior at manipulating cubes too.

The open-source, artificially clever prosthetic leg designed by researchers on the College of Michigan will probably be delivered to the analysis market by Humotech, a Pittsburgh-based assistive know-how firm. The purpose of the collaboration is to hurry the event of management software program for robotic prosthetic legs, which have the potential to supply the facility and pure gait of a human leg to prosthetic customers.
This video is price watching totally for the shoulder-dislocating high-five.

Of the whole lot on this SoftBank Robotics 2021 rewind, my favourite spotlight is the large rubber duck avoidance.

On this episode of the Robotic Brains Podcast, Pieter talks with David Rolnick about how machine studying will be utilized to local weather change.

A chat from Stanford’s Mark Cutkosky on “Selectively Comfortable Robotics: Integration Sensible Supplies in Comfortable Robotics.”

This can be a very lengthy video from Yaskawa which fits over many (if not most or all) of the ways in which its 500,000 industrial arms are presently getting used. It is nicely labeled, so I like to recommend simply skipping round to the fascinating components, like cow milking.
