Conferences on Sensing for Agriculture and Robotic Vision Among Expanded Topics at SPIE Defense and Commercial Sensing
New and emerging sensing technologies with applications as diverse as neurosurgery and crop optimization will be advanced through conferences at SPIE Defense and Commercial Sensing in April. The wide-ranging applications demonstrate the continuous growth of technologies such infrared, laser, terahertz, and multi- and hyperspectral imaging into new commercial applications.
The announcement comes after Cisco and FANUC America's 12-month Zero Downtime (ZDT) pilot project with a major automotive manufacturer.

by Zacks Equity Research: Technology giant and Dow component Cisco Systems, Inc. recently entered into a strategic alliance with a robotics company Fanuc America, thereby stepping up its efforts to make itself a key player in the Internet of Things (IoT) space. Per the alliance, Fanuc and Cisco have built an IoT system that enables Fanuc to monitor every robot on the factory floor. This way it can be determined whether a robot is likely to fail, so that a service technician can fix the equipment before it stops working. This could save companies hundreds of dollars of fixing cost. Per Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins, downtime for these robots can cost a business $16,000 per minute. Therefore, the new system that offers predictive maintenance can be a big thing for some operations. The companies are currently testing the system in a channel that comprises around 1,800 robots and includes Fanuc customer, GM. In this testing period, Fanuc says its customer has saved $38 million. Fanus has plans to expand the system to 2,500 robots by the end of the year. Cont'd...
