May was another big month of money flowing into robotic ventures. But May was even bigger in launching new robotics-focused venture funding groups.
The recent developments in algorithms and sensor technologies make it possible to efficiently implement vision guided robotics tasks for manufacturers.
Lean manufacturing is thinking "out of the box". Removing time, effort, and cost from the manufacturing processes is the solution to Lean manufacturing and competitiveness.
Here are some crowd funding projects of interest.
RPA can bring about a "virtual integration" of multiple systems while executing repetitive work more accurately and reliably than humans can.
A dashboard is a single rqt window with one or more plugins displayed in movable, re-sizable frames.
Qualcomm Announces 10 Companies Selected to Participate in the Qualcomm Robotics Accelerator, Powered by Techstars
Qualcomm is Jumpstarting the Next Wave of Innovation in Robotics with its Accelerator program
Money is flowing to robotics-related startup companies. Q1 saw 19 equity deals totaling $317 million, and 3 acquisitions of undetermined amounts, but money also flowed in April.
If your robotics research depends on accurate models, you may want to consider looking at MapleSim® 2015 - a high performance physical modeling and simulation tool developed by Maplesoft™.
This cell is divided into 4 stations: A manual loading/unloading station and three process stations where tank openings are cut and numerous components welded on.
The 2015 Prize for Contributions in Soft Robotics rewards academic researchers for sharing their work and advancing the field. The competitions include $10,000 in prizes!
A Competitive Alternative to Traditional Linear and Rotary Position Sensors.
This is an example of high speed milling of a soft foam statue into a sculpture using Robotmaster and a KUKA Robot. The 7-axis robot allows accurate cutting from all angles.
SMAC's LAR Series linear-rotary actuators provide the ideal technology for improving capping quality while cost-effectively providing 100% real time on- and off-torquing validation.

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.
