Recent debates have brought a range of UAV driven privacy concerns to light, with key fears including trespassing, nuisance and data protection.
Almost all robots today use lasers for remote sensing. This means that the robot is able to tell, from a distance, some characteristics of an object.
Facing challenges of labor shortages and aging labor forces, Taiwan's Ministry of Economic Affairs is implementing "Productivity 4.0" to stimulate economic growth and upgrade industries.
True success in a challenging technical field like robotics requires a team of creative people working together and supporting one another.
Once we remove the human-machine interface - in other words, take away pedals and the steering wheel - we shift liability to an outside-operator, much like with driverless public transport systems.
Using machine vision inspection with high-performance Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) cameras, ISW GmbH designs turnkey hardware/software solutions for the pharmaceutical industry to specifically ensure accurate dimensions and fill levels of ampoules in production, replacing error-prone manual quality control processes.
Although farming has become mechanized, the evolution of agricultural techniques to include unmanned robots provides a unique opportunity.
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.
Capturing and processing camera and sensor data and recognizing various shapes to determine a set of robotic actions is conceptually easy. Yet Amazon challenged the industry to do a selecting and picking task robotically and 28 teams from around the world rose to the competition.
Essentially, USAR robots act as the eyes and ears in environments that that are too difficult or too dangerous for humans to go.
A dashboard is a single rqt window with one or more plugins displayed in movable, re-sizable frames.
Drones will eventually be "as ubiquitous as pigeons", London-based futurist Liam Young recently predicted. They will be used for a lot of different tasks. One overlooked drone application even has the potential to become a trillion dollar business. And to save the world.
Overall, the reports that I surveyed were upbeat, predicting exponential growth for all unmanned vehicles.
