05/10/12 The Bristol Robotics Lab is a partnership between UWE Bristol (University of the West of England) and the University of Bristol. It is home to 70 academics and businesses who are leading current thinking in 'nouvelle' and service robotics, intelligent autonomous systems and bio-engineering. Over $2.5 million has been spent on the new facilities which cover 2,400 sqm, with over 300 metres of specialised laboratory space and two Flying Arenas. "This is probably the largest robotics lab in Europe," said Libor Kral, Head of Unit Cognitive Systems for Interaction Robotics at the European Commission. Robotics is a key element for…
04/21/10 The TACO project, co-financed by the European Commission under EU Framework Programme, is developing a 3D sensor that will enable robots to observe their environment in a more natural and human-like manner. The TACO project, which started in February 2010, will make it possible to apply current robots in more sophisticated markets so that they will play a major role in the fields of cleaning, construction, maintenance, security, health care, entertainment and personal assistance in the future. TACO employs 3D foveation to significantly improve on current 3D sensor systems. Foveation enables the TACO systems to acquire 3D images with coarse…
