In Italy have developed a robotic assistant for builders

Engineers innovation engineering center Fraunhofer Italia (IEC) in Bolzano are developing software that will allow the robot assistant to work effectively on a construction site. Based on the platform of the Husky A200 mobile robot uses a new navigation software for the independent solutions of logistic tasks.

Compared to the same home robots in building models is much more complex duties and work conditions. In this regard, robotics Fraunhofer are developing a new software interface that combines building information modeling (BIM) with the robotic operating system (ROS).

The new interface treats the stream of important information to update the database on the obstacles at the construction site, which sensors the robot can have a problem, which allows him to avoid, for example, open Elevator shafts.

According to the developers, this information helps the robotic assistant to safely carry heavy construction materials and tools around the construction site. To navigate through the constantly changing terrain mobile robot uses an electronic control unit, lasers, acceleration sensors and tilt. In addition, he can follow his “boss”, when activated follow-me (follow me).

Physicists have learned to turn plastic bottles in supercapacitors

Scientists from the University of California, riverside have developed a technology to produce components for supercapacitors from regular waste. We are talking about polyethylene terephthalate or PET, which is made most of plastic bottles. This material is from an economic point of view is significantly superior to high-tech raw materials, like graphene or carbon nanotubes. […]

Looks like a screwdriver of the XXI century

Recently Techcult wrote about the drill of the XXI century with a touchscreen and lasers. But the screwdriver is traditionally considered to be more simple, reliable and very straightforward tool. What similar high-tech screwdriver advanced Italian production? And it is similar to the Kinetic device Driver. Kinetic Driver designed by the Italian designer Giacomo Di […]

Our Solar system is most similar to space croissant

The sun emits powerful electromagnetic winds that envelop the planet in our solar system like a giant bubble. This magnetic bubble is called the heliosphere and protects the planet from dangerous space radiation. Scientists have long believed that the heliosphere is in the form of a comet – with a distinct nose and long flowing […]

Some homemade masks turned out to be more dangerous than no

Despite the fact that the industry has recovered from the shock of the first days of the pandemic COVID-19 and now produces enough facial masks of different types, most people in the world due to various reasons use homemade versions. Everyone understands that they are less effective than professional medical model, but the question is: […]
