    A humanoid robot just explored its first shipwreck. The OceanOne, developed by a team at Stanford University, had its first real-world test recently when it surveyed the wreckage of La Lune, a 17th century ship that sunk near the southern coast of France. It basically looks like a robot mermaid, but instead of a tail, [..]

    As robotic systems and applications become more and more complex, the danger of costly damage to robots increasingly distracts developers from the important work of developing even radically different motion control and planning strategies. Furthermore the dynamic properties of current robotic systems are not sufficient for human tasks such as throwing or running. Typical actuators [..]
