Robots – Robotic Rehabilitation and Biomimicry Environmental Monitoring

In this episode, Ron Vanderkley speaks with Dr Lei Cui from Curtin University about his team's work on 3D printable hand orthosis for rehabilitation, a task-oriented 4-DOF robotic device for upper-limb rehabilitation and a 3-DOF platform providing multi-directional perturbations for research into balance rehabilitation. They also discuss the fastest untethered robotic fish for river monitoring and an amphibious robot for monitoring the Swan-Canning River System.

Robots: CyPhy LVL 1 Drone

In this episode, Audrow Nash speaks with Helen Greiner, CEO and founder of CyPhy Works and co-founder of iRobot, about CyPhy Work's LVL 1 photography drone. The LVL 1 drone has six propellers that are angled up and rotated slightly, which allows the drone to fly without tilting; flying without tilting is significant because, Helen says, it makes the drone more intuitive to control, as well as removing the need for a costly and high-maintenance camera stabilizing gimbal system.

Robots: European Robotics

In this episode, Sabine Hauert talks to main stakeholders in European Robotics at the European Robotics Forum in Vienna. Cécile Huet, Deputy Head of the Robotics Unit at the European Commission, gives us an overview of the new wave of robotics projects funded under Horizon2020, with a focus on robots that can help people and drive application. She also tells us about the tools available to fund the full pipeline from research projects to hubs of excellence in robotics. Uwe Haass, previous Secretary General of the non-profit EURobotics AISBL, tells us about the association's work to develop a roadmap for European Robotics and bring industry and academia closer. Together, the European Commission and EURobotics form a public-private partnership named SPARC which invests over €2.8 billion in robotics.
