Video Friday: iCub Is Evolving, Mind-Controlled Robot, and ROS for Drones

Now that we’re well past the crazy couple of weeks of ICRA and DRC, what do we have to get excited about with robotics?

While these flagship events are always exciting, the great thing about robotics is that fascinating research and development continues all the time, non-stop, which is why we’re able to bring you these Friday posts full of robot videos everysingle week.

This video doesn’t tackle that particular issue, but it does give a comprehensive 15 minute overview of the project, and towards the end (fast forward to 10:57)project leaderGiorgio Mettadescribes what the researchers are planning for iCub 3.0, a newversion of the robot:

[iCub] The goal of the EARS (Embodied Audition for RobotS) project is exploring “new algorithms for enhancing the auditory capabilities of humanoid robots.”One of the robots the researchers are using is NAO, and in a recent demoAldebaran Robotics showed how the little humanoid may soon join the hospitality industry.

Millán, Defitech Chair for non-invasive brain machine interfaces at EPFL, and Robert Leeb, from EPFL's Center for Neuroprosthetics, explain how people with disabilities can control telepresence robots or a wheelchair using only mental commands.

A study published in June 2015 in the Proceedings of the IEEE shows that disabled people manage to take the control of a telepresence robot as precisely as valid persons.

The goal is to rapidly start a firefighting effort without endangering the safety of the on-site response personnel, while waiting for the fire and rescue services to arrive.
