SMi's 12th Annual UAS 2012 Conference Takes Place in 3 Weeks

The UK's leading UAS event will continue to explore the growth and development of the international Unmanned Aerial System market.

London 4 October 2012


UAS 2012 will take place in London on the 24th and 25th October 2012. This insightful event will bring together a line-up of leading military officials and industry experts exploring the growth and development of the international Unmanned Aerial System market and seeks to further identify and establish the transition of UAS into Commercial and Civilian markets.

High level presentations and case studies will look at the procurement of various UAV platforms by the US and European militaries whilst anlaysing emerging markets worldwide. The conference will go above and beyond a review of developments of Unmanned Aerial Systems by reviewing tactical feedback and addressing issues such as UAS hijacking.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
