Using Robots to Clean Oil Spills

As this technology is still in its infant stages, we do not truly know how efficient the process will be. We can only hope that the technology will be there when the next spill happens.

ABB Robotics' Introduces 7th Generation IRB 6700 Family Of Large Robots

ABB Robotics has introduced the IRB 6700 robot family, its seventh generation of industry-leading, large industrial robots.

Hunters: A Good Patent is Good, a Great Lawyer is Even Better

There has to be some way to separate the wheat from the chaff, the frivilous/worthless lawsuits from the honest patents based on hard, sweaty creative efforts that deserve protection.

Harvest Automation Robots Space Over 40,000 Poinsettia Plants in Four Days

Harvest Automation robots are designed to work around the clock, they never need a break, and can handle the most tedious and repetitive work on a Nursery or Greenhouse operation with consistent accuracy and on-time performance.

Air Force Research Lab Uses TORC's Robotic Conversion Kits for Robotic Assault-Zone Survey Vehicle

TORC's unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) conversion kits, which maintain the ability for optionally manned operation, offer the proven capabilities and modularity necessary for AFRL to scale from one prototype to production quantity.

Highspeed Frame Capture Interface With MatLab

CoaXpress and MatLab integration offer options where previously none existed. The ability to have a controllable high speed camera at distances greater than 7m wasn't a possibility before, without the use of extenders and other potential hardware failures.

The Future of Flying Robots

The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International projects that the integration of UAVs would have an $82 billion economic impact on the economy by adding 100,000 jobs from 2015 to 2025.

The Savior Aerial Robot (Pars)

The Savior Aerial robot is designed in a way that it can quickly move towards drowning people by user guidance and activates its savior system. This system releases life tubes for the drowning ones.

Impacts of Robotics on Employment, Safety, Quality, Productivity, and Efficiency

Some analysts assert that technological change is beneficial for all groups in our society, that the changes are more evolutionary than revolutionary in nature.

Robotics in Education

Robotics and STEM education can be deployed as part of other school curricula, and not just science. As an example, there are programs in which teachers are using robotics in art and history classes.

Vacuum Systems For Successful Robot Implementation

The design of a vacuum system and choice of vacuum components for robot end effectors can be of crucial importance for a successful robot installation. This paper discusses vacuum solutions for robot end effectors, which increase the possibility of a successful robot installation. At the same time, I would like to resolve the misunderstanding that all vacuum ejectors are expensive to operate.

ATI's 7th Annual Technology Training Fair

We covered a variety of recently developed ATI products including new Robotic Tool Changers, Utility Couplers, Tool Changer Modules, and other new robotic end effector products and applications.

Integrated Wheel Drives for Electric Utility Vehicles

We'll look at electrically-powered vehicles in this load class of about 100 lb (45 kg) up to 2,000 lb (900 kg), and in particular the types of propulsion systems used in them, including fully integrated traction drive systems.

The DARPA Robotics Challenge Rundown

Teams are competing to develop and put to the test hardware and software designed to enable robots to assist humans in emergency response when a disaster strikes.

Solar Powered Unmanned Vehicles

When you have the combination of high energy density and thin and flexible form factor, you can apply this solar material to anything with a battery that moves, can be carried, or worn.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

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.
