Collaborative robotics at the Automate and ProMat trade shows

Collaborative robots need safe, sensitive and flexible end-of-arm-tooling (EOAT) and there were many vendors - and some breakthrough technologies - demonstrated at the two shows.

Robotics Ignite Agricultural Revolution

Advanced robotics will make jobs such as harvesting easier for farmers. In time, when robots finally learn how to harvest each individual crop, farms will be able to produce more yields for human consumption.

Report: Cyberattacks on Industrial Robots

Trend Micro recently released the first in-depth, hands-on research that demonstrates the extent to which industrial robots can be compromised.

Unmanned Mowing Robots will be on sale in Japan soon, developed by public and private partnerships

The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries will work on the development of an unmanned mowing robot in collaboration with Industrial Technology Research Institute, Yokohama City, Fukuoka Prefecture and others.

Another Race to the Moon-This Time by Robots

On September 13, 1959, the Soviet Union landed the first human-made object on the surface of the Moon. The United States landed the first human on July 20, 1969. Now, there is a race to land the first robot on the moon.

Technology Behind the Intel Drone Light Shows

The entire fleet of Intel Shooting Star drones are all controlled by one computer. The fleet size is dependent on the animation needed and can range from hundreds of Intel Shooting Star drones or even more in the future.

The changing landscape of mobility as seen at Automate and ProMat

Retailers and logistics companies have been opening facilities at a record pace and in this fast-paced world, warehousing and logistics managers are looking for robotics solutions to remain competitive.

How to Tell Category Data Cables Apart

The category positively correlates with the data speed. I.E. the higher the category, the higher the possible frequency and the higher the frequency, the higher the possible data rate.

Beyond Digital Transformation - How to Implement Real Change

Design thinking is a problem solving approach that focuses on people and their emotional responses. It helps identify what matters to people, both outside and inside of the organization.

What does the future of drone technology look like? We have an idea!

While most companies are focused on how drones work in the sky, XWorks is setting its sights on how they work on the ground, using a landing pad they call the RDISt (Robotic Docking and Interchange Station).

Cognitive Automation : Advent of Virtual Workforce

Cognitive Automation (CA) , also known as Intelligent Automation, is a set of AI based technologies including Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing. The core difference between CA and generic RPA is that CA works at a semantic level and tries to understand the underlying data rather than just treating it at a superficial level.

Festo Hannover Messe Pre Show Preview

Collaborative robots in the classroom deliver hands-on learning

RAMTEC Career center in Ohio is home to the largest, most comprehensive robotics education center in the U.S.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) - The Future of Outsourcing

RPA systems are used to automate basic and repetitive office tasks. A technology like this can have massive impact on the future of Business Process Outsourcing (BPO).

Wireless Electric Planters Optimize Crop Yield

Coupled with the electrification of farming vehicle systems and rising seed costs, the farmer faces a unique challenge: accurately planting seed in order to optimize crop yield.

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.
