UNEQ Executive's thoughts from the AUVSI 2012 Conference

UNEQ president Michael Kennedy attends the 2012 AUVSI conference.

Las Vegas, Nevada- August 6-9 2012- AUVSI held its 39th annual conference and exhibition for unmanned systems and robotics technologies at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada 6-9 August. Michael Kennedy, President and CEO of UNEQ consulting, LLC supported the event and moderated in several panels.

"It is always great to see it come together at the show" says Michael Kennedy, member of the Conference Committee for a second year. "The committee spent months reviewing abstracts, recruiting speakers, and deciding on the final program. I was very excited to chair a technical session where presenters from the Navigator Development Group, Maneuver Support Center of Excellence, and TRADOC presented informative information about recent developments in robotics technology."
"I was also honored to moderate and participate in the Joint Ground Robotics Integration Team (JGRIT) information exchange panel where the members of JGRIT from the Army's centers of excellence and the other services provided information the industry has waited for and needed for a long time. The attendees asked great questions and I believe they all left with very useful information to help them understand the JGRIT and its purpose. It is important to note that future JGRIT meetings will be open to industry partners, which hasn't been available to them before now."
This annual trade show for Unmanned Systems is the largest of its kind with nearly 8000 attendees and more than 500 exhibitors. It gives many new systems a chance to be presented to the people in all aspects of robotics including business leaders and decision makers. The next AUVSI conference will be held in August 2013 in Washington, DC.
UNEQ Consulting is based in Columbus, Georgia and provides a variety of services to government agencies and unmanned systems companies.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
