Researchers at Singapore's Nanyang Technological University have developed robotized insects that could be used to search for survivors in collapsed buildings. The researchers outfitted Madagascar hissing cockroaches with backpacks featuring a communications chip, a carbon dioxide sensor, a motion sensor, an infrared camera, and a small battery.


ACM has named 71 contributions in areas including algorithms, computer science education, cryptography, data security and privacy, medical informatics, and mobile and networked systems among many other areas. The accomplishments of the 2021 ACM Fellows have driven innovations that ushered in significant improvements across many areas of technology, industry, and personal life.


National University of Singapore (NUS) engineers have constructed a robotic hand that can grasp various objects using three-dimensionally-printed fingers. The air-driven fingers feature a locking mechanism for adjusting the level of stiffness required for grasping, while computer vision and deep learning technologies help identify object types and determine their orientation.
