Now one of these robots has made it onto the International Space Station in the form of a high-tech joystick: The system, developed at the EPF Lausanne, is designed to help remote-control exploration robots. Scrubbers with an artificial brain Artificial Intelligence makes robots mobile and autonomous. This is of particular interest for the manufacturers of cleaning equipment and their clients: Several 10.000 cleaning robots are currently deployed – and because of Corona, the number of smart cleaning machines is growing. Will robots soon help care for the elderly? There is already a chronic shortage of qualified staff in the nursing sector, and demographic change will only exacerbate this development. Consequently, a research team at the German Aerospace Center is developing robots for use in nursing homes. Autonomous driving: Trucks catching up Just a year ago, start-ups working on robotaxis were raising eight times as much money as companies interested in self-driving trucks. In the meantime, the gap has narrowed dramatically. Staff too old? Robots step in As the population gets older, automation increases. That's what a new study by MIT and Boston University shows. First microsurgery with robot Pioneering micro-surgery: At the University Hospital in Zurich, a patient was given the finest connections between lymph vessels and veins - by robot. Robot dispenses hugs on demand Need a hug and no one familiar to wrap your arms around? A doctoral student at the "Max Planck ETH Center for Learning Systems" is developing a hugging robot that could once alleviate loneliness. Crash-proof drone Researchers in Zurich have developed a drone that does not crash – even if one of its rotors fails. University of Zurich teaches drones tricks Thanks to a navigation algorithm, drones are learning to autonomously perform acrobatic maneuvers. Using simulations, the autonomous aircraft are trained to become faster, more agile, and more efficient. Researchers at the University of Zurich develop extremely agile drones Researchers at the University of Zurich (UZH) have developed a system that enables flying robots to be very agile. A new type of camera allows autonomous drones to respond much faster than if they were controlled by a human pilot.
