The Transport Research and Innovation Portal (TRIP) is being migrated to a new more efficient platform. The change will be completed on 3 June and will make it easier for users to find and submit transport research information. While this change is being made, it will not be possible to save new information to TRIP. Therefore, please wait until 3 June to upload new information. This includes projects, events, news, programmes and user registrations. [read more]
On 20 May, one Polish and two Danish companies received recognition for having completed a verification process of their innovative environmental technologies at the Eco-Innovation forum being held in Barcelona. [read more]
The human hand is an extremely complex system abundant in receptors, muscles and articular joints. For this reason, despite significant advances in humanoid robotics in recent years, current artificial hands either have limited functionality or lack adequate practicality and robustness. Aiming at overcoming these constraints, Prof. Bicchi’s team has developed an artificial hand, called SoftHand, unique in its ability to distinguish between heavy and delicate objects. To achieve this result, researchers have worked on making a better hand by making it simpler. [read more]
Three European teams – including the EU-funded WALK-MAN – will present their emergency-response robots to the world at the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) Finals from 5 to 6 June. They are among 25 teams showing how far robotics has come since the Fukushima disaster, as well as the obstacles still to be tackled. [read more]
