Laser-Powered Robot Insect Achieves Lift-Off

Everything is better with lasers, especially tiny robot insects. For robots of all sizes, power is a fundamental problem. Any robot that moves is constrained in one way or another by power supply, whether it’s relying on carrying around heavy batteries, combustion engines, fuel cells, or anything else. It’s particularly tricky to manage power as

Keeping an Eye on the Health of Structures

Scientists at Tokyo Tech used synthetic-aperture radar data from four different satellites, combined with statistical methods, to determine the structural deformation patterns of the largest bridge in Iran. The importance of roads and bridges for humans both during ancient and contemporary times is clearly evident. The structural health and integrity of such large structures are,

Detecting Damage in Structural Components With New Infrared Technologies

Deterioration in bridges and other structures commonly manifests from subsurface damage that cannot be detected through visual inspections. Once the subsurface damage is observed through visual inspection, deterioration has advanced to a stage where significant repairs or even replacement may be required. Technologies that can detect the onset of deterioration in its earliest stages allow
