Strategic Focus Area "Advanced Manufacturing" Launched

Industry and science are searching for answers to the challenges of digitization – including in production. In order to supply Switzerland with the necessary expertise for the future, the ETH Domain initiated the Strategic Focus Area (SFA) Advanced Manufacturing. The launch took place in Bern on Monday 13 November 2017 in the presence of Federal Councilor Johann Schneider-Ammann.

Speedy Collision Detector Could Make Robots Better Human Assistants

FACEBOOK-Fastron-collision-detection.jpg

A faster collision detection algorithm could enable robots to work more fluidly in the operating room or at home for assisted living. The algorithm, dubbed “Fastron,” runs up to 8 times faster than existing collision detection algorithms. It uses machine learning to help robots avoid moving objects and weave through complex, rapidly changing environments in real time.
