My 2015 Predictions: Big Deployments, Big Ideas and Big Problems Solved

I see three exciting and significant trends taking place right now that I think will begin to gain some very real traction in 2015.

Upcoming Tradeshow, Conference & Exhibition Summary
March, April & May 2015

Automate 2015 gets going in March and the once every 2 year Tradeshow is perhaps the biggest and most important Manufacturing show in North America.

Why I Automate: Manufacturer Finds Promising Gains with Automation

Job loss was on everyone's mind. Results showed that the opposite took place. Higher quality led to more orders and an increase in the number of jobs.

2014 Robotics In A Word: "MORE"

The list of top stories in robotics for 2014 is a story of "MORE": MORE uses of and for robots; MORE serious discussions about robots; MORE robots in unusual places; MORE news in the financial press; MORE funding, acquisitions and IPOs; and MORE choices.

Intuitive Robot Programming for Flexible Aerospace Manufacturing

Robots are proving to be flexible tools for aircraft manufacturing and assembly. Their full potential however can be limited by the challenges of programming a robot in a CAD/CAM environment. Software that integrates offline programming, simulation, code generation, and path optimization makes the process seamless and error-free.

World's First Robotic Entertainment On The High Seas For Royal Caribbean International

Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Robotic Arts and ABB Robotics join forces to debut groundbreaking RoboScreen® entertainment system.

Robotic Farming For The Future

If you think about the global population growth and the need to feed this mounting population, farmers must become more efficient at the harvesting and production of all crops. In the future, robots will be utilized to accomplish most tasks, from seeding to fertilizing as well as chemical application.

Interview with David Sands, ST Robotics International

We call our robots entry level for a very good reason. People can get started so easily with our robots. They are not the best robot arms on the planet but they are affordable and incredibly easy to use.

Using Reverse Engineering Techniques for Product Innovation: The Legitimate Way

The goal of utilizing RE should be to identify flaws in your version of the product design and figuring out ways to eliminate the errors and bring out a flawless product eventually.

Ozobot, Knightscope, Hibot and Airware all get funded

A Robot's View of the World

For the Harvest Automation engineering team to get an accurate view of what the robot is seeing, we've constructed a tool that we call Mindprobe which collects all the sensor data, interprets it and displays this in a graphical form.

DARPA-Funded Inflatable Robotics Helps Spark Idea for Silver Screen Star

DARPA's M3 program is creating and demonstrating novel design tools, fabrication methods and control algorithms to make robots more mobile and better able to manipulate objects in their environment.

Kissing It Better: Lifting Ergonomically with Vacuum

By using the right suction and the right lips for the job, you really can "kiss it better" before lifting, rather than after.

Robotic Assembly

Manual assembly procedures, which previously have been neither ergonomic nor appropriate for automation, can currently be automated in a cost-effective way.
