Your future co-workers could be a swarm of robots

But Chapman says there’s also an increasing opportunity for human-robot interaction and collaboration—combining forces to solve society’s grand challenges.

Your future co-workers could be a swarm of robots

In the future, swarms of robots could help us perform tasks from search and rescue to farming. Imagine there’s a flock of aerial robots searching for a lost hiker, for example. They have to cover a large area of remote bush and a central commander won’t work because they’re so spread out. So, instead, the […]

Exploring the virtual plant

AR and VR are not just for our personal entertainment — these technologies are being used to benefit manufacturing facilities.

Exploring the virtual plant

 How AR and VR can benefit manufacturing facilities When you think of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) you might think of being immersed in a simulated world filled with mystical creatures like on PokemonGo. However, AR and VR are not just for our personal entertainment — these technologies are being used to benefit […]
