These are the robots that will make the public at the Olympics. | Digital Trends Spanish

The Government of Japan has had to adopt new restrictive measures as a result of the increase in the number of people infected by coronavirus. These measures will have a direct impact on the next Tokyo Olympics. The most important thing is the absence of public in the different venues where the competition will take place. For this reason, the organizers have had to resort to technology so that athletes do not feel so alone in the stadiums, and they have presented the robots that will replace the public at the event. It is about Pepper and Spot, which should offer a warmer and more friendly reception than that offered at other sporting events, where images or screens have replaced the public. In fact, this type of prototype has already been successfully tested in some baseball games in...

MWC 2021: Verizon introduced two robots connected by 5G | Digital Trends Spanish

Verizon showed two robots on stage at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) conference in Barcelona and indicated that the prototypes use 5G connectivity from mobile edge computing to connect with each other. According to a Reuters report, edge computing uses augmented reality and machine learning to analyze big data in the place where it was collected, which can be a factory, an oil rig or the office space, and requires fast data transfers of the kind that only high-speed 5G signals provide. "When you have more than one robot in the plant, you run into a problem, as these are still just machines, and they cannot naturally communicate with each other," Verizon Chief Strategy Officer Rima Qureshi said at the event.

In Japan they use robot wolves to scare away brown bears | Digital Trends Spanish

An army of robot wolves, which can roar and show their red eyes to scare off grizzly bears, was deployed in the city of Takikawa in northern Japan. This after an increase in sightings in residential areas of the city.

The robot was developed through a cooperative project involving the Ohta Seiki company, the University of Hokkaido and the Tokyo University of Agriculture. The product resembles a wolf, with a body 120 centimeters long and a height of around 90 cm. When its infrared sensor detects that a wild animal or human is nearby, the robot shakes its head and lets out a roar to threaten any individual in its environment. ...

Non-contact robot is used to measure COVID-19 symptoms | Digital Trends Spanish

Reducing the risks of contagion of COVID-19 through the use of robots that remotely measure the vital signs of patients, is the objective of a project promoted by American researchers. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Brigham and Women's Hospital (BHW) in Boston made it possible for doctors to monitor patients without needing to be in the same room, thanks to remotely controlled robots equipped with a tablet. “In robotics, one of our goals is to use automation and technology to get people out of dangerous jobs. We think it should be possible to use a robot to prevent healthcare workers from directly exposing the patient, "says Henwei Huang, a researcher at MIT. Using four cameras mounted on a dog-shaped robot developed by Boston Dynami...
