Electric and Magnetic Fields Drive Soft, Flexible Robots

IEEE Spectrum Recent Content

Roboticists are getting quite good at making robots with soft, flexible bodies. There are lots of good reasons to do this: Robots with inherent compliance can be safer to work around, more resilient to damage, and can leverage lots of unique methods of locomotion. The issue with soft robots is that you often have to make compromises when it comes to powering them or getting them to move, because those things usually involve the addition of components that aren’t soft at all, like batteries and actuators.

Ponte flutuante da I-90 será a primeira do mundo a integrar vias para metro ligeiro de superficie

EngenhariaCivil.com

A Autoridade Regional de Trânsito de Central Puget, Sound Transit, divulgou novas imagens do projeto de construção da ponte flutuante da autoestrada I-90, nos EUA. A obra-de-arte será a primeira do mundo do seu género a integrar vias para metro ligeiro de superfície, fazendo parte do plano East Linkde extensão da rede viária. De forma a ter em conta os variações de nível e ondulação do lago Washington, o projeto prevê a utilização de um sistema inovador de estabilização de carris que permitirá que as composições circulem em segurança a velocidades de até 89 quilómetros horários.
