A typical feature of mammals lies in their ability to experience sensations, something that robots are beginning to imitate. With the help of artificial skins and algorithms, our researchers have managed to make a small humanoid robot aware of human contact and even notice if someone is invading his ‘living’ space. The little android with …read more
Our colleague, Ing. James Brandon Pritts, from the Visual Recognition Group spoke on the topic: Self-driving cars safety. For more information [in Czech], see the article in Hospodarske noviny. Thanks for the representation of our faculty.
Ing. Tomas Sixta and doc. Boris Flach published the article “Polarized actin and VE-cadherin dynamics regulate junctional remodelling and cell migration during sprouting angiogenesis” in prestiguous “Nature Communications“. The research studies mechanisms of endothelial cells while creating new blood vessels. Congratulations!
The project RobotBodySchema (or “Robot self-calibration and safe physical human-robot interaction inspired by body representations in primate brains”), investigated by the team of Mgr. Matej Hoffmann, Ph.D., became a Partnering project of the Human Brain Project. Congratulations!
In Novinky.cz has been published an interresting article (in Czech language) „Drony z ČVUT pomáhají odkrývat dlouholetá tajemství” (More videos and articles about this topic you can find at the end of this website.) Many thanks for the representation of our department!
