Operational space control of 6DOF robot arm with spiking cameras part 3: Tracking a target using spiking cameras

Alright. Previously we got our arm all set up to perform operational space control, accepting commands through Python. In this post we’re going to set it up with a set of spiking cameras for eyes, train it to learn the mapping between camera coordinates and end-effector coordinates, and have it track an LED target. 2,246 more words

Surgical Robotics and the Attack of the Patent Trolls

Even when they are terrifying, like in Terminator films, robots are cool. That’s especially true about the burgeoning field of surgical robotics. While we are not yet at the Empire Strikes Back moment when robots replace Luke Skywalker’s hand after Darth Vader sheers it off, we are getting close. 40 more words
