Mobile Robotics Platform Becomes A Semi Humanoid Known As SAMI
07/09/12 — Forbes—SAMI the mobile robotic platform created by the CRIIF (Robotic Center of Ile de Franceis)* SAMI is a $100K prototype robot that some claim represents the future of robotics – he was built to be utilized and deployed cross-industry from healthcare to manufacturing to entertainment and intelligent transportation systems. He also was built cheaply, with quality materials and technology. SAMI is a mobile, autonomous and interactive robot. Human-sized, it has two robotic arms, allowing it to travel alone, avoid obstacles, navigate in its environment and especially interact with people. “We believe that SAMI has endless applications because he is designed…

Robot Cats Purrrrfect for Elderly
05/14/12 — Robot cats and other man-made companions could help Britain's elderly, according to a report by the Royal Academy of Engineering. The report recommends that autonomous devices could provide a variety of different services to older people, ranging from basic companionship to medical monitoring. Devices with the appropriate sensors could act as fire detectors, or flash lights when doorbells or phones ring. "This is not constrained by the technological possibility of it so much as by the desire to do it -- and that is bound up with all sorts of social factors," said Professor Will Stewart of Southampton University, who…
