Paralyzed Patient Thinks 'Walk,' and Then Walks

Posted:

Thousands of people every year suffer spinal cord injuries and lose their ability to walk. An brain-controlled exoskeleton that moves a patient’s legs could be one way to get some patients out of wheelchairs. A multinational consortium led by Belgian company Space Applications Services has designed the mindwalker, which is a frame – the exoskel... continue reading

Bat-Robot Sheds Light on Flapping Flight

Posted:

We’ve had robots inspired by cheetahs, sand fleas, geckos and birds. Now engineers at Brown University have built a robot inspired by the bat. It doesn’t fly on its own yet – the robo-bat is still attached to a kind of arm in a wind tunnel. It does, however, mimic the wing shape and motion of the lesser dog-faced fruit bat. The robot itself i... continue reading

Brainstorming A.C.R.O.S.S 3 - Grid Navigation

Posted:

Introduction This tutorial covers the navigation of an autonomous bot on a grid without obstacles. The same code however can be easily modified for a grid with obstacles. An arduino code file is provided at the end. Materials Used Arduino Leonardo Line follower Hardware (Sensors, Motor drivers, Bot Chasis etc.) LCD Display (for Debugging purp... continue reading

Brainstorming A.C.R.O.S.S 2 – Shortest Path Algorithm

Posted:

Grid Mapping: The recursive backtracker algorithm we discussed in the previous article can be easily improvised and implemented for grid mapping. This can be understood by understanding that the algorithm is essentially a search algorithm designed to locate the destination point anywhere on a grid with obstacles and thus it will check every poi... continue reading
