Robots have been around for a long time. But, now, scientists are finding some amazing ways that they can help us. Imagine a robot that can do things humans can’t. South Coast researchers are developing robots with x-ray vision. A robot that’s only about two feet tall can do some big things. “If you use unmanned vehicles and existing wireless signals like WiFi to enable having x-ray vision and be able to see through walls. That’s something we’ve shown is possible,” said Yasamin Mostofi, an electrical and computer engineering professor at UC Santa Barbara, who does groundbreaking work in mobile sensor networks.
