In these time-lapse photos, a robot is guided by two different algorithms as it attempts to grasp a coffee cup on a desk. In the first (top), the robot flails about randomly before reaching toward the cup. But when it runs a new algorithm designed by MIT researchers (bottom), its movements are much more efficient and predictable.

Smarter robot arms

A combination of two algorithms developed at MIT allows autonomous robots to execute tasks much more efficiently — and move more predictably.
