Online Robotics Certificate Program

The program is offered in an asynchronous format, which means you can study any time, any place. We also offer a "pay as you go" tuition option where students pay for each course as they complete it.

Robot Programming for the Future

Dynamic interaction with a robot programming software has never been easier but it did come at a cost. Our entire simulation framework had to be designed from ground up to allow for instantaneous interaction.

Muscle Bound Robot

Carbon nanotubes hold great promise for more efficient robotic muscles as well prosthetics. There are many other technologies that will benefit from carbon nanotubes, including nanotechnology, electronics, optics, and architecture because of their exceptional electrical properties, astonishing strength and effectiveness in heat conduction.

Can Robots Work Alongside Humans Safely?

The same technology that has provided value for warfighters can be brought into the commercial world to provide safety and efficiency for forklifts, golfcarts, lawnmowers and porters to carry your luggage in resorts and shopping carts that can follow or lead you in retail stores.

Case Study: Alignment Device With On-center And Off-center Locking

The KA device's ability to lock to center and also off center is critical to this application. That ability, coupled with the device's reliability and repeatability, makes for a great solution in this application.

Linkbot Modular Robotic Platform Kickstarter

Kickstarter : Each robot has three buttons for user interface and a 3-axis accelerometer. The brain behind all these features is the ATmega128RFA1 by Atmel, running at 16MHz. It integrates an 8-bit AVR microcontroller with an 802.15.4-compliant and ZigBee-capable radio transceiver operating in the 2.4GHz band. Out of the box, it communicates at 250kbps over the air, but with custom firmware you can enable speeds of up to 2Mbps for an 8X increase in throughput.   Atmel AVR Microcontroller: Compatible with Arduino so you can re-flash with your own firmware using the on-board bootloader ZigBee-Capable Radio: Communicate wirelessly with an 802.15.4-compliant radio, create mesh networks, control and monitor remotely Multi-Color (RGB) LED: Select from a full spectrum of colors 3-Axis Accelerometer: Detect free-falls, bumps, tilt angles Buzzer: Play notes or complete tunes, give audio responses to inputs RJ11 (6P4C) Expansion Connector: Use a standard phone cable to connect our Bluetooth/breakout boards or your own electronics to your Linkbot's power and I2C bus 3x Buttons - Easily control Linkbot modes and functions or write custom functions for button presses Micro-USB Connector: Connect to a computer or charger with a standard Micro-USB cable Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery: Run your Linkbot for over 3 hours for most applications before having to charge High Torque:Weight-ratio Motors: Light-but-strong motors produce up to 100oz-in of torque Absolute Encoding: Precisely control and measure speeds and angles down to 0.5 degrees BaroboLink Software: Graphical interface lets you run programs, actuate motors and read sensors on your computer Polycarbonate Housing: Super-durable, drop-tested from second-story building (not recommended) so it can handle your demanding projects SnapConnector Mounting Surfaces: Quickly connect and remove wheels, connecting plates, grabbers, even multiple Linkbots; or connect your own accessories with standard screws

What is the best way to explore Mars?

No matter how we look at it, robots are the logical choice at this time to explore the red planet and as we make robots more autonomous, they will be better at their assignments than humans.

A Conversation with Henri Seydoux, CEO of Parrot

The success of the AR.Drone and now the AR.Drone 2 has proven Henri's conviction that there is a large consumer market for this type of entertainment product and that there are other related high-potential markets on the horizon.

Machine Vision System Detects Defective Parts for Precision Stampings Supplier

With production rates of 3,200 pieces per hour for a single production line and an acceptance rate of virtually 100% required by mobile phone and hard drive manufacturers (one defective piece per 120,000), 100% inspection of the components is necessary to ensure that all orders will be accepted by the end customer.

Grizzly - Robotic Utility Vehicle (RUV)

We build all our robots around a popular open source robotics development framework, called Robot Operating System (ROS). Since it is open source, it makes it quite simple to integrate with other open source initiatives, like Android.

Arduino YĂșn: Arduino With A Wifi System-on-a-chip

blog.arduino.cc : Arduino Yún is the combination of a classic Arduino Leonardo (based on the Atmega32U4 processor) with a Wifi system-on-a-chip running Linino (a MIPS GNU/Linux based on OpenWRT). It’s based on the ATMega32u4 microcontroller and on the Atheros AR9331, a system on a chip running Linino, a customized version of OpenWRT, the most used Linux distribution for embedded devices. Available at the end of June for $69.   Arduino Yun Specifications (via  cnx-software.com ) : MCU – Atmel ATMega32u4 @ 16 MHz (same as the one used in Leonardo board) with 2.5KB SRAM and 32KB flash SoC – Atheros AR9331 MIPS-based Wi-Fi SoC running Linino, Arduino’s own Linux distribution based on OpenWRT. It’s the same chipset as in TP-Link WR703N router. Storage – microSD card slot USB – micro USB connector + full USB host port Connectivity – Ethernet + Wi-Fi 14 digital input/output pins (of which 7 can be used as PWM outputs and 12 as analog inputs)
