Bees solve complex colour puzzles

...h is to exploit this understanding to build seeing robots that, like the bee with its mere one million neurons, can learn to find a simple flower in a meadow, which no machine can do at present. Our lab has reconstructed our specially designed bee flight arena - known as the Bee Matrix - in the virtual worl...

Penguins waddle but they don't fall down, UH researchers say

...ch can be used to build smaller computers for such robots that will become increasingly more life-like. "There is not much research on this issue, so we're hopeful about the results," Kurz said. To facilitate his study, Kurz has created a special platform that contains a pressure mat. As penguins walk...

Robot assisted surgery more accurate than conventional surgery

...ge London, who led the research team, said: "These robots are designed to hold the surgeon's hand in the operating theatre, not take over the operation. This study shows they can be an enormous help, preventing surgeons from making mistakes. More importantly, by showing how the increased accuracy makes a di...
