Robotic HID Headlight Kits
Everybody knows that driving in storms can be a tough challenge, and frequently quite dangerous. This is due to decreased visibility, especially at night. Now, however, a new high-tech HID headlight device intends to clear things up for drivers. The new headlights claim to make maneuvering the roads quite a bit safer. They are being referred to as Robotic HID Headlights.
According to the National Motorway Quality Traffic Safety and Security Administration, in the year 2010, over 2,600 fatal car crashes took place in snow and rain. Mishaps like these can now more easily be prevented in the near future, thanks to a clever HID headlight kit system developed by Srinivasa Narasimhan and his team of analysts at Carnegie Mellon College’s Robotics Institute.
Utilizing a camera, a software light projector, and an application algorithm, the team’s clever front headlights system reroutes light aimed at bits of rainfall. [Read more...]
The use of robotics in the field of dentistry is still in the early stages. Being that it is so new, this area of research is full of opportunities. The number of applications is vast. Although still new, initial research looks inspiring. Of interest to most is Dental Implants Using Robotics.
One area that students and researchers are working on using robotics is dental implant surgery. While the surgery may never be fully automated with robotics, robots can be used for preoperative planning, as well as the surgery itself.
The purpose of using a robot to aid in dental implant surgery is to automate the drilling process involved with the procedure. Benefits of using the robot are an overall safer procedure, more accurate drilling, and quicker healing times.
At present, researchers are able to create a digital 3-D map of teeth. With this 3-D model, researchers are able to create a route for a robot to drill on. The robot is an industrial type called the Denso. They managed to successfully create a boundary around the tooth. [Read more...]
