Q&A with INTERPOL World 2017 Speaker Mr Holland Michel, Co-Director for the Center for the Study of the Drone

The use of drones in law enforcement is a much more recent phenomenon than the military use of drones, which explains why the public is less familiar with the issue, but we're hoping to change that!

Smart grasping demonstrated at Automate and ProMat trade shows

Tactile sensing and force feedback are - and have been - problem areas for robot grasping. Humans could see, select and pick so much faster. Yet to handle the millions of different everyday items in our factories and warehouses, costly positioning and camera systems have been required.

Welding With OCTOPUZ

In a continuing series, OCTOPUZ will be showing their expertise in the field of offline programming software for robotics. In this article, we will be examining robotic welding.

The Most Important Robots in Medicine

A robot could soon be a regular member of the medical staff across the country, taking a patient's pulse, scanning vital signs, taking pictures and even reading case notes. Then, this information is sent to a nurse practitioner or a physician's assistant, who can advise the doctor as to the patient's condition.

Interview with Japan Roboticist and Celebrity "Hiroshi Ishiguro"

Japan is a highly Service Robots oriented Market - Three way Dialogue Systems will be in high demand in Future.

North America Takes Lead in Industry 5.0 by Necessity

Realizing that education must occur to build the bridge from Industry 4.0 to 5.0, Drive Manufacturing Summit is the first conference to embrace this line of thought. This unconventional conference will facilitate conversation around the cultural shift, not just informing attendees of advancements, but educating them on how to integrate them into their facilities for future proofing.

Why Smart Manufacturing Is Guaranteed to Need Industrial Robotics

By connecting manufacturing leaders with end-users, implementing machines that are able to maintain themselves and teaching current employees how to work with the new line of industrial robotics, proactive and tech-savvy manufacturers are in a position to revolutionize the way they do business from this point forward.

Embedded Vision

The use of compact devices that run embedded software is becoming increasingly popular in industrial environments. From smart cameras and vision sensors to smart phones, tablets, and handheld devices, it is almost impossible to imagine connected and highly automated Industry 4.0 processes without these small devices.

Impacts of Tolerances Refinement

Tolerances refinement is a well-known concept for manufacturers in the aerospace industry. This new reality has a direct impact on how they do things. To succeed reaching new market standards, an upgrading of their plants and equipment is inevitable.

Stäubli Anniversary: Quality and Innovation as a driving force for 125 years

Building Up Today's Manufacturing Startups: Lowercase NYC

If I make a change on a design, I have to be able to apply the changes quickly. And since we are competing against bigger, high-end eyewear manufacturers, we have to deliver the highest quality even if we do quite smaller productions.

Questions to Ask When Specifying a Frame Grabber for Machine Vision Applications

Frame grabbers are no longer exclusively used in machine vision; they are today an essential component of dozens of industries. It is therefore important that the frame grabber manufacturer is involved in standards committees and other groups monitoring the evolution of this fast-changing technology.

Nvidia's Robotic Platform

By continuing to add more computing capabilities for AI on edge devices with NVIDIA Jetson, and more tools and platforms to accelerate robotics development, like Isaac and the Jetson robotics reference platforms, we can help researchers and companies build robots that are more capable, less expensive, and safer to deploy.

Visible Flight: Drones Raise Filmmaking Opportunities

Despite all of the new tools, drones are still only used in about 10 percent of film productions where a camera drone and crew can cost less than $3,000 compared to $25,000 for a helicopter shoot.

Machines and Robots Driven by Muscle Like Acting NiTi Alloys

The biomechanically inspired machine that is discussed in this paper refers to the antagonistic muscles pairs, which belongs to the Skeletal Muscles and are normally arranged in opposition so that as one group of muscles contract another group relaxes or lengthens.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
