Mobile phone runs on urine power – Bristol Robotics Laboratory

Mobile phone runs on urine power – Bristol Robotics Laboratory

The project is all about generating electricity from waste material. In other words, turning waste into something really, really useful. And the microbial fuel cell technology is something that does exactly that. It takes the waste that we naturally produce and it converts it directly into electricity. At the moment, we are at the stage …

New Bolton Center Pioneers Revolutionary Robotics-Controlled Equine Imaging System

New Bolton Center Pioneers Revolutionary Robotics-Controlled Equine Imaging System

(upbeat music) – We’re New Bolton Center, Penn Vet’s large animal hospital and we’re really excited to launch our Equimagine 4DDI CT imaging system to change the face of equine imaging. There’s a lot of aspects of equine biomechanics that we don’t understand. The limb in motion, there’s a lot of forces that occur and …

Six-Legged Robots Faster Than Nature-Inspired Gait

Six-Legged Robots Faster Than Nature-Inspired Gait

for a long time roboticists have been inspired by nature in designing their robots for example when looking at how to construct six legged robots they’re inspired by insects. In insects if you look across many different species use the same locomotor strategy for moving fastest: they use the tripod gait. it’s a movement in …

AgBot II: A New Generation Tool for Robotic Site-Specific Crop and Weed Management

AgBot II: A New Generation Tool for Robotic Site-Specific Crop and Weed Management

PROFESSOR TRISTAN PEREZ: The issue of weeds costs Australia about 1.5 billion dollars a year in terms of operations. And there is estimates of another 2.5 billion dollars a year in losses in agricultural production. Making these things even more complicated is that some of the weed species are developing resistance to herbicides. RAY RUSSELL: …

The Ethical Robot

The Ethical Robot

it seems to me we have the opportunity for coming up with a new perspective and thinking about ethics with machine ethics because what we’re gonna think about is how we want machine robots for example to treat us. our research began trying to see whether ethics could be computed how do you even represent …

Cassie – Next Generation Robot

Cassie – Next Generation Robot

We’ve been working for a lot of years on understanding walking and running. We started with ATRIAS. ATRIAS really showed the base features that we wanted to show about legged locomotion. So Cassie is the newest bipedal robot out of our lab. We added a few motors for degrees of freedom. So that enables us …

Tablet manufacturing process by dry granulation

Tablet manufacturing process by dry granulation

Tablet manufacturing process by dry granulation In case of dry granulation, first of all, API and excipients in suitable quantity are dispensed. After the dispensing process, API and intragranular excipients are subjected to mixing process (dry mixing/blending) What is intragranular excipients? They are the excipients added in the granules. They are called as intragranular excipients …

IFE Enabling Platform overview – Manufacturing with advanced materials

IFE Enabling Platform overview – Manufacturing with advanced materials

Associate Professor Leonie Barner: The researchers in my platform, they are tackling real life problems, real world problems, for example in the areas of energy, environment, but also we help industry to produce in a more clever way, so that they depend on less resources. So, for example, I’m involved in one industry project where …
