Soft-bodied robots, on the other hand, may be able to interact with people more safely or slip into tight spaces with ease. But for robots to reliably complete their […]

NTU Singapore Scientists Develop ‘Mini-brains’ to Help Robots Recognize Pain and to Self-repair

Singapore, 15 Oct. 2020 — Using a brain-inspired approach, scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have developed a way for robots to have the artificial intelligence (AI) to recognize pain and to self-repair when damaged. The system has AI-enabled sensor nodes to process and respond to ‘pain’ arising from pressure exerted by a physical […]
