Ten of the most innovative robotics developments of the past year
January 18, 2019 by Bob Yirka,

Guang-Zhong Yang, an editor at Science Robotics, with help from an international team of contributors, has highlighted ten notable robotics developments that occurred over the past year in the journal's most recent issue.

Starting off the list is a robot called Atlas, from Boston Dynamics. The company has been working on it for years, but this year, the robot took a leap forward with the implementation of new systems that allow it to move and overcome obstacles better. This year, it even executed a backflip.

Next on the list is a surgical robot system called da Vinci—made by Intuitive Surgical. The system represents a step forward in robotic surgery with improvements in wrist and elbow control. It allows for manipulating three fully-articulated instruments.
