Robotiq releases a new version of its 2-Finger 85 Adaptive Gripper. Nearly two times stronger and 50% faster this new Gripper has been perfectly designed to match Universal Robots in terms of payload, flexibility and user-friendliness.

OpenCV Vision Challenge

From the OpenCV Foundation:

OpenCV Foundation with support from DARPA and Intel Corporation are launching a community-wide challenge to update and extend the OpenCV library with state-of-art algorithms. An award pool of $50,000 is provided to reward submitters of the best performing algorithms in the following 11 CV application areas: (1) image segmentation, (2) image registration, (3) human pose estimation, (4) SLAM, (5) multi-view stereo matching, (6) object recognition, (7) face recognition, (8) gesture recognition, (9) action recognition, (10) text recognition, (11) tracking.


The OpenCV Vision Challenge Committee will judge up to five best entries.

You may submit a new algorithm developed by yourself or your implementation of an existing algorithm even if you are not the author of the algorithm. 
You may enter any number of categories. 
If your entry wins the contest you will be awarded $1K.
To win an additional $7.5 to $9K, you must contribute the source code as an OpenCV pull request under a BSD license. 
You acknowledge that your contributed code may be included, with your copyright, in OpenCV.

You may explicitly enter code for any work you have submitted to CVPR 2015 or its workshops. We will not unveil it until after CVPR.


Submission Period: Now – May 8th 2015 
Winners Announcement: June 8th 2015 at CVPR 2015

More versions, more power - New DCX motors and GPX gearboxes from maxon

Now even stronger, more efficient and with yet more combination options: There are new additions to the maxon family of X drive products. Several long versions of brushed DC motors, with higher torques and more power, are being added to the product range, together with matching planetary gearheads. Each of the 3-stage versions can now be combined with the next smaller motor. This saves space, weight and costs.

Microsoft Deploys Autonomous Robot Security Guards in Silicon Valley Campus

From Extremetech:

The K5, built by the Californian company Knightscope, is billed rather euphemistically as an “autonomous data machine” that provides a “commanding but friendly physical presence.” Basically, it’s a security guard on wheels. Inside that rather large casing (it’s 5 foot tall!) there are four high-def cameras facing in each direction, another camera that can do car license plate recognition, four microphones, gentle alarms, blaring sirens, weather sensors, and WiFi connectivity so that each robot can contact HQ if there’s some kind of security breach/situation. For navigating the environment, there’s GPS and “laser scanning” (LIDAR I guess). And of course, at the heart of each K5 is a computer running artificial intelligence software that integrates all of that data and tries to make intelligent inferences...
