Sensitive synthetic skin allows robots to feel their own body and environment, a crucial ability to be in close contact with people. Inspired by human skin, a team from the Technical University of Munich has developed a system that combines artificial skin with control algorithms and is used to create the first autonomous humanoid robot with full body artificial skin. Each cell is equipped with a microprocessor and sensors to detect contact, acceleration, proximity and temperature. With such an artificial skin, robots can perceive their environment in much more detail and with more sensitivity. This does not help them to move more safely and work near people.

Amazon the creator of Alexa, a smart speech assistant comes up with multiple applications and improvements to existing products to stimulate use. A good example is Show and Tell with Amazon Alexa. For example, the blind and visually impaired can hold things from the kitchen in front of the machine's camera, such as the Amazon Echo, after which Alexa can tell you exactly what you are holding. Amazon uses both computer vision and machine learning.

Hyundai has developed a new exoskeleton - the Vest EXoskeleton or VEX. The exoskeleton can be worn as a vest and is intended to support employees in the (car) industry in the heavy work they do above all. The VEX reduces fatigue and increases the physical strength of the user by imitating the movements of the joints and supporting the activities under heavy load.

Scout, Amazon's delivery robot, starts delivering parcels after a successful small-scale test. From Monday to Friday, the robot drives around the Irvine region in California. The reason Amazon starts in sunny California is because of the weather. It doesn't rain much and the sun shines a lot, so there's little chance that the robot will have to drive in all weathers to deliver a package. In Seattle, where the robot was tested, it was different.

As a global partner of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, Toyota aims to offer mobility solutions that go beyond the provision of official vehicles. One of the ways they do this is by participating in the "Tokyo 2020 Robot Project", a project led by the Tokyo Organising Committee that brings together the Tokyo Metropolitan government and the games' partners with experts in robotics. During 'Tokyo 2020', Toyota robots will be used to support people's mobility. By helping people make their dreams come true, the brand believes it will be able to further contribute to the experience and success of the games ahead.

Research into robotic prostheses is progressing by leaps and bounds, but a feeling of touch is difficult to overcome. This feeling helps us, among other things, to keep our grip power under control. Researchers at Utah University, among others, have developed a new method that mimics the feeling of a real hand, which is vital when it comes to fine motor control for handling delicate objects, according to the team in the journal Science Robotics.

A team of researchers and engineers from Gaumard Scientific have developed a robot that provides a more realistic situation for medical training. The robot, called HAL, looks like a boy and also behaves like a boy. He can follow a finger with his eyes, answer questions, cry for his mother and experience anaphylactic shock.

Elon Musk wants to connect the human brain to computers. A first step in this plan is to implant fine wires into the cerebral cortex. The operation, which must be as safe and fast as having your eyes lasered, will be carried out by a robot. People with a disability; The goal is initially to insert brain implants into the brains of, for example, paralyzed people, and to enable them to operate computers and telephones. It should also be able to restore speech, vision and hearing.

Amazon originally intended to reveal the robot, known internally as “Vesta,” as early as this year, but the machine isn’t ready to be mass-produced, the people said. While Amazon could choose never to release the robot, in recent months it has pulled engineers from other projects to work on it , Maybe a signal the company plans to sell Vesta at some point. It’s unclear what tasks the Amazon robot might perform. People familiar with the project speculated last year that the Vesta could be a sort of mobile Alexa, accompanying customers in parts of their home where they don’t have Echo devices.

China is already the world's largest market for industrial robots. As labour costs continue to rise, the demand for robots in the country will be stronger. The country's agricultural sector is seen by some as a place where technologies can take root. A research institute and a startup, Fujian Academy of Agricultural Sciences and Fujian Newland Era Hi-Tech Co Ltd, are determined to develop an agricultural robot. The sensor-rich agricultural robot can move between two rows of chlorophyll in a greenhouse, collect data on the plants and return them to the control room. The robot, suitable for 5G, is equipped with two 5 megapixel cameras as "eyes". With sensors at the top of its head and mouth, the robot can also detect wind speeds, carbon dioxide, humidity, temperature and other data about the natural environment of the greenhouse.

The largest supermarket in the Netherlands now has a robot delivering orders to customers. This is a trial by Albert Heijn at the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven. Customers place their orders via an app. The groceries are placed in the robot by employees, who then drive to the right place with the help of cameras and sensors. Customers still have to go outside to pick up the groceries from the trolley.
