Creating the first benchmarking for humanoids: EUROBENCH seeks for partners!

Benchmarking is a key instrument to accelerate the process of turning prototypes into products. Now that robotics is rapidly gaining relevance, the sector needs the development of a benchmarking with greater reason. We are partners of EUROBENCH, the first project with the mission of creating the first consolidated benchmarking procedure in robotics worldwide, specifically in [...]

Automatica 2018: Four areas where “cobots” fit in Industry

Automatica 2018, the fair where Industry 4.0 takes shape, seems to have clear that the “Factory of the Future” involves collaborative robotics. The so-called “cobots” are based on the fact that they share the same workspace as operators - meaning, they can work safely around (and also with) people, without needing any cage or partition [...]

IEEE Humanoids 2017, the future of humanoid robots at Birmingham

This November is an exciting month for us and for our robots! It began last Wednesday, when our CEO Francesco Ferro was invited as an expert at the European Parliament to take part in the “Transferring Robots to the world of SMEs” conference. Now we’ve got a date with the humanoid robotics community next [...]

SocSMCs: making robots interact without words

When we shake hands with someone or help them moving furniture, our body is calculating much more than we know, even though we are not consciously aware. The direction in which our hand is moving, how much force is needed, how we keep the balance meanwhile… These are automatic decisions that are daily taken by [...]

Humanoid robots, imitation learning and torque control

This week, we interview Head of the Department of Automatics, Biocybernetics and Robotics at the Jozef Stefan Institute in Slovenia, Ales Ude. As founder of the department’s Humanoid and Cognitive Research Lab, he has a particular interest in imitation learning - the way robots interact with and learn from humans. In Ales’ words, “Imitation learning [...]

Sharing PAL Robotics’ experience in biped humanoids at KoroiBot final workshop

One long shot in robotics is to make biped humanoids walk in a robust and stable way. If we want robots to help us in our daily life, they have to adapt to a world which fits us, to our world. Walking with two legs, keeping balance and immediately reacting to any obstacle is natural [...]
