Using Everyday WiFi to Help Robots See and Navigate Indoors

Using Everyday WiFi to Help Robots See and Navigate Indoors

Engineers have developed a low cost, low power technology to help robots accurately map their way indoors, even in poor lighting and without recognizable landmarks or features. The technology consists of sensors that use WiFi signals to help the robot map where it's going. It's a new approach to indoor robot navigation.

Taste of the Future: Robot Chef Learns to 'Taste As You Go'

Taste of the Future: Robot Chef Learns to 'Taste As You Go'

A robot 'chef' has been trained to taste food at different stages of the chewing process to assess whether it's sufficiently seasoned. The results could be useful in the development of automated or semi-automated food preparation by helping robots to learn what tastes good and what doesn't, making them better cooks.
