Video Friday: GR-1 – IEEE Spectrum

Video Friday is your weekly collection of superior robotics movies, collected by your mates at IEEE Spectrum robotics. We additionally publish a weekly calendar of upcoming robotics occasions for the subsequent few months. Please ship us your occasions for inclusion.

Humanoids 2023: 12–14 December 2023, AUSTIN, TEX.
Cybathlon Challenges: 02 February 2024, ZURICH, SWITZERLAND
Eurobot Open 2024: 8–11 Could 2024, LA ROCHE-SUR-YON, FRANCE

Take pleasure in right this moment’s movies!

Fourier Intelligence has simply introduced the mass manufacturing of their GR-1 humanoid, they usually’ve received a minimum of a dozen of them.

Thanks, Ni Tao!

This collaborative work between researchers from the College of Southern Denmark and VISTEC introduces a biomorphic tender robotic pores and skin for a hexapod robotic platform, that includes a Central Sample Generator-based neural controller for producing respiratory-like motions on the pores and skin. The design permits visuo-haptic nonverbal communication between people and robots and improves the robotic’s aesthetics by enhancing its biomorphic qualities.

Thanks, Mads!

In line with information from 2010, round 1.8 million folks within the U.S. can’t eat on their very own. But coaching a robotic to feed folks presents an array of challenges for researchers. A workforce led by researchers on the College of Washington created a set of 11 actions a robotic arm could make to choose up almost any meals attainable by fork. In checks with this set of actions, the robotic picked up the meals greater than 80 % of the time, which is the user-specified benchmark for in-home use. The small set of actions permits the system to be taught to choose up new meals throughout one meal.

Thanks, Stefan!

When you watch sufficient robotic movies, you get to know when a robotic is being pushed in a means that’s straightforward to get well from, and when it’s truly being challenged. The top of this video reveals IHMC’s Nadia getting pushed sideways in opposition to its planted foot, which necessitates a crossover step restoration.

Thanks, Robert!

Ayato Kanada, an assistant professor at Kyushu College, desires to construct woodpecker-inspired Doc Ock tentacles. And if you’re a professor, you possibly can simply try this.

Additionally, woodpeckers are bizarre.

Thanks, Ayato!

Discover Tevel’s joint robotic fruit harvesting pilot program with Kubota on this video, filmed throughout the 2023 apple harvest season in Mazzoni Group’s orchards in Ferrara, Italy. Watch as our autonomous fruit-picking programs function with precision, skillfully harvesting varied apples within the idyllic Italian orchards.

Understanding what’s an impediment and what’s solely obstacle-ish has all the time been difficult for robots, however Spot is making some progress right here.


We tried to play Avenue Fighter 6 by teleoperating Reachy! Properly, it didn’t go as deliberate, as Antoine gained. Nevertheless it was a fairly epic struggle!

The important thing property of a knowledge middle are the servers. Whereas most of them are lively within the server room, idle and new property are saved within the IT warehouse. Focusing primarily on this IT warehouse, SeRo automates the inbound and outbound administration of the information middle’s property.

People might be so imply.

Attention-grabbing HRI with the flashing gentle on Spot right here.

On 2 November 2023, at an occasion hosted by the Swiss Affiliation of Aeronautical Sciences at ETH, Prof. Davide Scaramuzza offered a complete overview of our newest developments in autonomous drone know-how geared toward reaching human-level efficiency.
